Publisher's Summary

Four full-length novels for one low price

Aran awakens in chains with no memory. He’s conscripted into the Confederate Marines as a Tech Mage, given a spellrifle then hurled into the war with the draconic Krox and their Void Wyrm masters.

Desperate to escape, Aran struggles to master his abilities while surviving the Krox onslaught. Fighting alongside him are a Major who will do anything to win, a Captain who will stop at nothing to see him dead, and a woman whose past is as blank as his own. 

Caught between survival and loyalty, Aran must choose. If he flees he will live, but the Krox will burn the galaxy. Stopping them requires a price Aran may be unable to pay: learning to trust the very people who enslaved him.

Space Marines, Dragons, Demons, Spellguns and More

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the audio book in exchange for an honest review.

Magitek Chronicles is a space marine story set in a Space Fantasy world. It has the normal military science fiction tropes but with elements welded in from fantasy. This is critical to understanding just what you are in for.

Some franchises I’ve enjoyed that do similar things include Star Wars, RWBY, Final Fantasy and Babylon 5.

If the idea of a space marine shooting a rifle that flings level 3 Void spells or a space dragon fighting capital ships fills you with delight then you are in the right place. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. All four volumes for one price is an insane value.

From the moment you are dropped into the world with an amnesiac hero, the brisk action keeps up a break neck pace to a rousing conclusion in the first book.

The second explains more of the world, mythology and develops the setting building up to another epic climax.
By the third and fourth books there is better balance of action and plot development. The threats, powers and spectacle keep ratcheting up and by the end the entire scope of the war elevates to something mythic. That’s right. Books 1-4 are great but the series is still ongoing.

There are plenty of swerves, surprises, revelations, prophecies, betrayals and more to constantly keep you guessing just what will happen next.

The characterization is interesting because the main characters have no memory. We get hints of who they might have been and we learn along with them as secrets are revealed, past actions they can’t even remember catch up with them and they have to choose how much of who they were will determine who they want to be.

The tone balances levity with mind blowing magic sci fi action. The use of weapons, armor, ships, spells, potions etc gives it nearly a LitRPG feel but not in a distracting way.

The spectacle alone is enough to recommend the book. I hope the rest of the series continues to deliver on its large promise. There is plenty to enjoy in this volume. It’s quite the ride and is never plodding or slow.

The narrator did an excellent job. His voice is clear, easy to understand and helps guide you along, even while pronouncing the names of strange demons, dragons and old gods. He balances a number of accents so well he makes it look easy.

There is some strong language in the books (1-2 F bombs in each book.) The action is irrepressible but never gruesome or gory. There is no explicit sexual content. I think your average teenager would be just fine with this series and would get a big kick out of it.

Looking forward to more in this world.

A Space Epic

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the audio book in exchange for an honest review.

I wish that I was better at writing reviews in order to provide the author the credit he deserves.

I enjoyed the Magitech Chronicles. The start was a little hard as there is a quick learning curve. However, the author does a good job of stepping you into the battles and it's terminology.

In the book you will find descriptive, large scale battles, advanced weaponry and spacecraft, unique characters, and an imaginative universe.

The narrator does a fantastic job. The only reason I took a star off is that sometimes it sounds like the narrator is in a vacuum.

Definitely recommend this book series.

Swords and dragons fantasy.... leaves you hanging

Firstly, don't think that this is Sci-Fi even if Audible put it in that section, this is clearly fantasy.
Writing is pretty simplistic 'Spell swords, spell armor, spell ships', reader tries their best but I get the feeling that even they find it tedious at times.

Also, I listen to a LOT of long sagas, but when you buy a 34 hour Quadrilogy you actually expect an ending, this one is too drawn out and you're left hanging. Seems they just release a 9 hr book for another credit and at least another in the works. I'm left feeling a little suckered.

Strong Gravitational Pull.

I can't wait to get sucked back in to this story.
These books just take you to infinity and beyond.

Way too complicated!

I couldn't finish the book but fast-forwarded to the end and found no redeeming qualities at the end to get me to struggle into the story. Definitely going back.

highly recommended

A great mix of sci-fi and magic, which is easy to listen to.
only small criticism is that some of the smaller characters get a little bit repetitive, aside from that it's a solid listen.

It's a Quintology ! at least

Enjoyable adventure in a swords and sorcery in space, with dragons :)

Players of RPGs like D&D are going to enjoy the atmosphere, i could almost here dice during some of the combat.

Good mix of characters and motivations although some seem too forced. a lot of enemy within which i personally am not a fan of.

All in all a good set of books.
