The Sartious Mage - B.T. Narro The book was easy and enjoyable. I was drawn in by the story and the characters. It is in many ways the typical fantasy story but done with some likeable characters and some twists.

I especially liked the interaction between the main character, Jek, and the kidnapped princess. The other characters, while not fleshed out as much, still were adequate for the roles they played. The villain, while kind of a melodramatic type, was still able to get my blood boiling at some of the things he did.

The world building seemed pretty consistent and believable. This is the only story by Narro I’ve read so far, but I’m definitely interested in reading the others. All in all, while not a great book, it was still a good, entertaining, engaging read.
