Picking up a Manning book I expected it to be a winner. And once again he hits a homerun. The perfect balance between action of suspense made The Choice of Magic a real pleasure to read. I can't wait to see what he does next.

Michael G. Manning has crafted a unique story of a young wizard’s coming of age that’s a wonderful start to an engrossing new fantasy world.
~D.K. Holmberg, Author of The Dark Ability
But this will change, for the greatest power comes with knowledge, and the deeper teachings of wizardry have not been utterly lost. The last wizard of the old tradition still survives in solitude, nursing tired grudges and waiting for death.
His passing might have gone unnoticed, but for the imposition of a youth too stubborn to accept his refusal to take an apprentice. With a new student comes new hope, and that hope has caused old powers to stir again. That the world will change is inevitable, but the shape of the future is anything but certain.
