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....

Great story standalone or as part of KGU

Excellent story and characters and a good kick off to a new story arc. Interesting ideas behind where magic comes from.
Character voices are good, but found the main narration voice slightly off-putting although I got used to it eventually and it was still clear.
The author notes weren't read by the authors as in some of the other books in KGU but again the accent/voice used by Kate was much more pleasant than the main book.
The notes themselves were interesting and funny and a nice round out to the book although it does end with rather a lot of cliffhangers; definitely a part 1 of many type book. I like that these books are like a TV series with episodes and not too long to wait for the next one.
I have read and listened to the main KGU series but I may only read the rest of the series rather than listen to it, but I look forward to enjoying it regardless of the medium.

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!

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.
