The Protectorate Strikes Back
Reviewed in the United States on December 21, 2018
It’s been awhile since we heard from Damien Montgomery, Hand of the Mage King of Mars. I read Book 5 about a year ago, and while I didn’t appreciate the wait, it has been worth it. Hats off to Mr. Stewart for doing a topnotch job with Unarcana Stars. I could not put the book down until I finished. Per the book, Damien has been in rehab for eighteen months recovering from saving what seemed like every politician in the universe and sacrificing his health and magic to do so. Fortunately, he is still a mage with full power, but he can’t use his hands, and oh boy, he has his hands full with the bad guys in the Republic. On the plus side, Kelly is back, so is David, and Grace McLaughlin and her love relationship with Damien, too. The Republic is kicking the proverbial Protectorate’s hiney, and Damien must rise to the occasion and fight back. Mr. Stewart, when will Damien and the Protectorate make some progress investigating or discovering their magic predecessors? There is a real story there if Mr. Stewart can find the time to tell it, and I for one am very anxious to read it.
But, for now, immerse yourself in Book 6, Unarcana Stars. It is time well spent as Damien assembles forces from across the universe and makes a dramatic stand against the Republic.
