#88: The Unsuspecting Mage - Brian S. Pratt (Free Ebook)


Synopsis & Book Info:
'Magic! Real Magic! Ever wanted to learn? We require someone with intelligence and a disciplined mind. Those well versed in fantasy novels and role playing games a plus. May need to travel.'
Little did James realize when he answered the ad in the paper that he would find himself in the middle of an adventure destined to test the limits of his intelligence and courage. Not given any explanation as to why he had been brought there, James, a high school senior, must learn to survive quickly or die as others before him.
He quickly realizes that knowledge gained from hundreds of books, as well as time spent role playing, will prove invaluable in his new circumstances.
This new world is one on the edge of war and only by learning to control the magic within himself will he be able to survive the trials ahead. With the help of a boy named Miko, the wits he was born with, and no small amount of luck, he sets out to discover what he must do and perhaps the architect of his being there.

My Opinion:
This was a really exciting story about a guy who became a mage, and landed in a strange new world.
I loved the action, elements of magic, and great writing!
I think most fantasy lovers will really enjoy this book. I can't wait to read the second in the series, Fires of Prophecy.


5/5

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
