Publisher's Summary

The people of Perizzi have survived the battlemage war, but their future is looking darker than ever....

Byrne is a member of the Watch, investigating a series of murders in which the corpse was drained entirely of life.

Fray's expertise with magic is needed to catch the killer, but working with the Watch destroyed his father years before.

Choss is a champion fighter trying to diffuse a war in the underworld that threatens to turn the streets red with rivers of blood.

Katja is a spy from a foreign land attempting to prevent a massacre that will topple two dynasties and destroy the fragile peace in the city forever.

Watchmen and spies, assassins and criminals will clash on the streets in this magic-fuelled adventure from the author of Battlemage.

    "A Great Fantasy read from the Author of Battlemage"
    What did you like most about Bloodmage?

    The character development is first class with a nod to characters from the previous book. It was hard to stop listening.


    What about Matt Addis’s performance did you like?

    Matt Addis is the reason I chose to buy this book in Audible format rather then paperback. His voice carries you away to this world and differentiation of character voices make it easy to recognise what each character sounds like. Well done.


    Any additional comments?

    Stephen Aryan's work reminds me so much of David Eddings books of the Belgariad. I am so eager for the next book now that I may just have to start over again.

    "Good story but not great part of trilogy"

    The story as a standalone is good but as part of a wider series I find this to be lacking without enough link to battlemage.

    I would however recommend still going for it as chaos Mage the 3rd book is exceptional and in my opinion the true sequel to battlemage.

    "An engaging listen"

    I really enjoyed the espionage storylines and the investigation into the series of murders. Great fun and a very different feel to the previous book.

    "good addition to the story"

    it adds to the story and character of the relm, but it tied too many people in and too much happens all at once.

    "From war to intrigue"

    The previous book was about the war but this was just the start. This book focuses on some of the aftermath and the continuing fight again evil magic. Crime families, guardians, royalty and magic are a great combination.

    Story
    "Great for Fantasy fans. Tamer Game of Thrones"

    Like Song of Ice and Fire but focusing on Magic. Still plenty of blood, little bit of sex (mostly implied), but a lot of Magic. 2 or 3 stories all wrapped up in one City. Can't wait for the next one.
