Beware, oh friend, the Nothing Mage,

The man himself a blight,

With magic cursed and spells unseen,

That none can stand and fight.

Beware, oh King, the Nothing Mage,

A force that pierces all,

The tolling bell that sings of death,

‘Till lords and empires fall.

Beware, oh love, the Nothing Mage,

A vengeful man is he,

So if you dare to draw his wrath,

Then nothing ye shall be.

“There’s nothing there.” The words may as well have been a death sentence to young Declan. Without mana, there could be no studying at the sky-piercing Pinnacle Towers, there could be no great monster hunts, and there could be no following in his father’s legendary footsteps.

He’d be a cripple.

But when a terrible accident forces him to flee, Declan learns the true nature of his mana. Just because it doesn’t resonate at any known frequency doesn’t mean it isn’t magic. Just because he can’t cast the same spells as everyone else doesn’t mean he isn’t a mage. And just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

    Declan has no magic, that anyone can see, until he does in a Big Way. Once found, his magic is very difficult to control and dangerous when not. He makes some friends along the way and ends a circuitous route over land and sea to his next adventure. That would be book 2. Definitely worth a read/listen. I got mine from Audiobooks Unleashed!

    I was drawn to this book because of the title. I like the title a lot and the blurb was intriguing. The author has written a story with a very complex magic system and I appreciate and like the way that magic was addressed in this story. It was creative and different; however, I just never connected with the main protagonist. Originally, I thought the story was for children, but then coarse language is utilized and I realized it was for a more mature audience. The protagonist named Declan, goes through a lot of events in his life, but he reacts pretty much the same way each time, so there is little character growth in spite of his trials and tribulations. Spencer Dillehay’s narration is great. I requested this audiobook from Audiobooks Unleashed and I have voluntarily left this review.
