Summary

Altin Meade is a sorcerer with a curse. Seeking to avoid a looming doom, he sets his magical sights on the stars--a quest that will likely bring about the very consequence he's seeking to escape.
Far across the galaxy, Ensign Orli Pewter of planet Earth has a looming doom of her own--one of loneliness, depression and, worse, a race of genocidal aliens known as Hostiles seeking to destroy humanity. Trapped aboard a spaceship she never asked to be upon, Orli is in a fight for both her life and her sanity.
Worlds apart, Altin and Orli share a destiny, but neither knows the other is alive. The Hostiles know. And they have other plans.
The Galactic Mageis the first book in The Galactic Mage Series. Book 2,Rift in the Races, is now available, and book 3, Hostiles, is expected to be released mid 2013.

Great Story

Any additional comments?

This is a really great story and I love it and the idea. However David Botcher reads in his narration like he's trying to read poetry and it don't sound right.

Worst Audiobook I have ever heard

What would have made The Galactic Mage (Volume 1) better?

A good Narrator.

What was most disappointing about John Daulton’s story?

It might be a good story, but I never got past the second chapter.The narration is so monotone it destroys interest.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of David Bodtcher?

Stephen Fry, Peter Joyce, Robert Glenister or Stefan Rudnicki

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Galactic Mage (Volume 1)?

N/A

Any additional comments?

In audio books the Narrator is key.

Interesting mix of fantasy & sci fi

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It has a slow start to build the background of the two characters. One is the story of a young and upcoming bookworm super mage deep in his studies and the other is about the exploits of a rookie fleet science officer travelling the stars. On its own each is a standard story line in the genre of fantasy and sci fi but at the end the combination created an Interesting mix of both that is rarely seem. The writing is lightweight and their character development standard but overall an entertaining read and fine addition to any fan of fantasy or sci fi.
