Up Next: "Crimes Against Magic" by Steve McHugh

Crimes Against MagicThe valiant quest to clean off my Kindle continues with another book I got as part of a Kindle Daily Deal for a dollar. It looked rather interesting, so I decided to give it a chance. It looks like there is a bit of time travel involved with this book as well as what I think might be some good old-fashioned adventure filled with magic and mystery. I hope the book doesn’t let me down because if it turns out to be good there are two more for me to read that are currently available.

I always love finding a good new author to enjoy and I’m hoping Steve McHugh can be one of those for me this time around. I really need a good new fantasy and magic type series to sink my teeth into while I wait for new books from authors I usually read.



Ten years ago, Nate Garrett awoke on a cold warehouse floor with no memory of his past—a gun, a sword, and a piece of paper with his name on it the only clues to his identity. Since then, he’s discovered he’s a powerful sorcerer and has used his magical abilities to become a successful thief for hire.

But those who stole his memories aren’t done with him yet: when they cause a job to go bad and threaten a sixteen-year-old girl, Nate swears to protect her. With his enemies closing in and everyone he cares about now a target for their wrath, he must choose between the comfortable life he’s built for himself and his elusive past.

As the barrier holding his memories captive begins to crumble, Nate moves between modern-day London and fifteenth-century France, forced to confront his forgotten life in the hope of stopping an enemy he can’t remember.

An unabashed fan of science fiction and fantasy books, television, and movies, he wants desperately to someday finish writing a complete novel from start to finish. Working as a web developer by trade, he owns a mighty collection of Star Wars legos, and is willing to talk about sports more than most are comfortable indulging.
