I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next in this new series. It had a reasonable amount of action and suspense. I would recommend it to those that like Space Opera or if you just want an adventure story then you should really give this a try.
While the editing is good and it flows well I have some major problems with the book. The first is intermittent magic. This is the usual trope, where the main character can't use his magic consistently. It is the most frustrating thing to read. The magic fails again and again until suddenly he uses it as a form of plot armour. Looking at the blurb of the the next 2 in the series I can see that it is a reoccurring theme so I wont be reading them. Another problem I had was the flow of the main characters thoughts it was really weird and didn't seem particularly consistent. Was kind of odd.
