Publisher's Summary

"Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." (Arthur C. Clarke)

She didn't mean to use magic.

She didn't even know she had magic.

She just wanted to save her brother, who was dying in her arms.

Accused of using illegal magic, and sentenced to a cruel death at the hands of the city's guards, Hannah has no choice but to trust in the aid of a strange old man who wields unimaginable power.

The Founder has returned to correct the wrongs of unjust. But to do that, he needs Hannah, a young woman from the city slums. She has a key to unlocking a power even greater than his own - if she can only learn to trust herself and the magic flowing within her blood.

Restriction is a fantasy set in the far future, where magic and monsters ravage the land of Irth and only the strong survive.

Set on the foundation laid by the Kurtherian Gambit Series, Restriction tells an entirely new story in the Age of Magic - and of the heroes and villains who battle for control of its destiny.

Listen now and enter the Age of Magic....

Magic 101

A thoroughly engaging and enjoyable story of magic, government and a young girl with a power she never knew she had. The cast is full of strong characters, heroes and sidekicks who lean to the chaotic neutral side of the scale, willing to do what they need to do to survive but not really evil ... and then there are the government types ... uncompromising, self-interested and sometimes down right evil. This leads to an epic clash of wills and wits that will keep you breathlessly listening.
Funny, sad, thought-provoking, this was a story that makes me want to go read everything from this universe.

Excellent start to the series

I really enjoyed this captivating fantasy. This story has complex, kick-ass characters that immediately grab your attention; a street rat with innovative powers, a wizard who's life's work has been perverted, mind controlling mystics and a villain with delusions of grandeur to name but a few. This story has tragedy, magic, hints of potential romance and action. The plot is well paced, exciting, humorous and keeps your attention from the beginning to the end. The narrator of the audiobook did an excellent job. Her male and female voices were spot on and she created tension, sarcasm and humour with her tone and intonation in all the right places. Kate Rudd gives the characters individual voice and had the story visualized in your head like a movie at the theatre. It's the first book I've read/listened to in this universe and it definitely made me want to read more in the Kurtherian Gambit series. I will look forward to listening to the continuation of Hannah's story in the next book.

Great New Fantasy New Series With Quite a Bit Of Action

The story is interesting and the characters are well developed. The Author created an excellent world. The story grips you and keeps you in the edge of your seat. There is some crude language and IMO I would say this is appropriate for an older audience not for kids.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The story is not complete so if you want to find out how things turn out, you will need to continue reading the next book in this intriguing new series. There is a lot that goes on towards the end but it does leave you hanging and issues unresolved. This is very well written and I'm looking forward to listening to the next book in this epic fantasy series.

FANTASTIC. FIRST BOOK IN THE KUTHERIAN UNIVERSE I TRIED AND I LOVE IT!

Excellent. I am glad o decide to try this series. I like the magic and the danger and everything about it. I am downloading the next two books and I hope there will more to come. The authors are fantastic and of course Kate Rudd is an excellent and talented narrator/performer. She made the characters all come to life and I enjoyed it very much. I hope Kate Rudd will continue all the books in this series, that will be wonderful!

Great Beginning of Series on Magic

I could not put it down. I am going to listen to the whole series ASAP. It’s about restoring the good intentions of magic for all, after it has been perverted into evil.

Offshoot series from Kurtherian universe

*Spoilers* Set in the future of Earth after Bethany Anne & Michael have traveled into space, nanos & magic spread into the population; many weren't able to handle the etheric requirement & went mad; the mad were stopped & mankind grouped together to protect & rebuild. Ezekial, the Founder of Arcadia and primary architect of this new peace, decided to go a-travelin, & left his main student Adrian in charge. Adrian's power hungry urges went unchecked and a secret tyranny has been created. Only the rich who can pay off Adrian can send their children to the Academy for training. The poor who show magical ability are rounded up and killed. Ezekial is shocked at the abuse and inhumanity and decides to take action. Luckily, he witnesses the spontaneous magical actions of Hannah to save her brother's life; and decides to train her, as she can use all 3 types of magic. Ezekial believes Hannah has the ability to become an even greater mage than he is, and can be pivotal in ousting Adrian. Rudd does an excellent job with this narration. Must read for Kurtherian addicts (?) devotees (?) Enjoy!

Great story of illegal magic.

I thought this well written tale was quite exciting. I adore the kind hearted smart mouthed young woman who didn't know she could do magic. Her sidekick, Parker, is a terrific character too. I highly recommend this first in the series. I voluntarily reviewed this audio book after receiving an advanced copy.

A terrific magical fantasy adventure

Restriction is a terrific fantasy adventure that starts a new series which follows the Kurtherian Gambit series. The book has lots of action and interesting characters including a strong female lead. The narrator of the audio version does a great job.

This book can be enjoyed independently, but many plot lines are left unresolved at the end, so you will probably want to continue reading the series.

Contains "adult" language.
