    1. Mage Born is the first epic fantasy I've really enjoyed in a long, long time. Plotting surrounds a group of people connected to the Red Tower, a center of learning and networking for mages, re-established after an international war caused by rogue magicians. Magic users had historically been viewed with suspicion and fear, so the Red Tower sought to identify and teach young practitioners. However, decades-long fear and bias are hard to erase, and a movement to ban magic seems to be growing (as I [...]


    2. 3.5 stars.As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: thetattooedbookgeek.wordpressI received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.Mageborn is the first book in Stephen Aryan’s new epic fantasy trilogy Age of Dread set ten years after the conclusion of his previous trilogy Age of Darkness (I have to admit that I haven’t read the first trilogy).The Red Tower has reopened and its aim is to train children to control t [...]


    3. Mageborn, by Stephen Aryan. Book 1 of the Age of Dread. 4 / 5 stars.*As with all of my reviews, if I say “men”, it simply refers to humankind, both men AND women. I suppose I really should be writing it as ‘men, but when I’ve tried before, it’s always autocorrected out, and is really a pain in the ass to manually correct. You’ll see equal combinations of both, I’m sure, but they can be used interchangeably. Anywho~I previously read Stephen Aryan’s Age of Darkness trilogy, and was [...]


    4. Find this review at Forever Lost in Literature!Mageborn is the first book in Stephen Aryan new epic fantasy series, Age of Dread. The plot was interesting and the entire premise had me hooked: one man, Habreel, believe that all magic should be eradicated after a war that occurred ten years ago caused extreme loss and mayhem by magic users In general, it's not the most unique or inventive idea I've ever heard, but the execution was done in a fascinating manner that allowed the reader to follow mu [...]


    5. Oh man, what can I say about this book? Just read it. There is so much here to love. Now, I will say, while it is the start of a new trilogy, you REALLY need to have read the first trilogy - all sorts of characters and events are referenced. So it's really book 4 set 10 years later. Do not start here.But that's okay, the first three books were awesome. I think what really hooked me about this book is that it shows there are consequences to actions, even well-intentioned ones. This book really ex [...]


    6. As others have said, whilst you could read this as the first book in a new trilogy, I'd recommend reading the Age of Darkness trilogy first. Primarily because you'll then get more out of this book, as there's some recurring characters and plot continuations going on, but also because it's an excellent trilogy in and of itself.In Mageborn Aryan uses his skill at weaving multiple threads around each other, offering glimpses of connections here and there, while laying the groundwork for the rest of [...]


    7. You keep going 'what the heck is going on' and you realize that there really is a point but the author keeps you off kilter to keep you guessing. The different characters and their points of view help to start to develop the whole picture. Definitely want to read the next book in the series.



    8. I haven’t been reading a lot of fantasy lately. But when I read the book description of ‘Mageborn’, I found myself being excited to read this one. And when I saw that cover, I got even more excited. That cover is just so damn pretty!From the moment I started reading ‘Mageborn’ I found myself being intrigued by this read. The setting of the world was really interesting and I loved getting to know it bit by bit. It still took me a little while to really get into this story, but this didn [...]


    9. I wanted to like this book a lot more than I did, unfortunately, it fell a little flat. It may be because I've not read the previous books in this world? It's a good story, the actions scenes are particularly well written - and I loved the vast array of female characters. That I think needs to be emphasised more - I loved how many female characters there were. There was a lovely range of main players and supporting parts - especially in terms of female characters in positions of power. There's s [...]


    10. Set 10 years after the first trilogy, the ripples caused by the loss of life remain. As does suspicion of those that have magic. The brave defence of the world by the likes of the Battlemages has all but been forgotten. Into this scenario we have a group that fear magic and want it banned, unfortunately they are supported by those with much wider and more dangerous agendas.Many characters in this and it takes a little time to tune into them and their part in this but it is well worth the effort. [...]


    11. Mage Born is a well-crafted fantasy novel, with an engaging and often brutal story. It has multiple perspectives, and despite a large cast of core characters and the world-ending consequences, it manages to feel personal. All the characters have distinct voices, and there wasn't any one I didn't enjoy. However, my biggest fault with the novel also stems from the fact that there are so many characters. Even nearing the end, every time I reached a new chapter I would be like waitwho is this? They' [...]


    12. The glory of Stephen Aryan's first series is that while they shared characters and a overarching plot they were, essentially, three separate stories. This new series appears to be a traditional trilogy and the execution is off. Too many POVs distracted from plot progressions and undermined sympathetic build up with certain key characters and the lack of any resolution at all means this reads like the first half of a bigger book, not the first book of a series. That said, I like the writing, the [...]


    13. c2017 (11) FWFTB: eradicating, peace, Tower lawbringer, magic. Meh. It seems to be a trend with me that I don't get on with the first of Mr Aryan's trilogies but this had a YA feel all over it. I didn't feel any connection with the characters - definitely needed a what has gone before. I will get the next one as their is a bit of a promising, more mature plot so can recommend to the normal crew. <'>There was nothing else in the room. No furnishings, no weapons, no tools of torture. Just a [...]


    14. A disappointing sequel to the Age of Darkness trilogy, from an objective standpoint I can see it as setup for books to come, but they feel extremely forced with not only most individuals but entire countries' populations acting like idiots throughout the book, and almost no events making sense.


    15. Mages are feared by society and are dealt with severely. Mages look for teaching and sanctuary. It's a great dark read by the battle mage author.
