    It's ok Some are better than others.. it's a lot of reading and some of them kinda jump to rather sudden perfect solutions.. Like how quickly the Heemites were prepared to drop their total belief in the gods under the mountain.. bit overly simplistic. Also the Tarkans followed Aardyn but switched allegiance almost immediately.. he was overcome and vanquished too easily considering that his forces had overwhelmed and taken the Tarkans. But I suppose when they are churning books out so fast stuff li It's ok Some are better than others.. it's a lot of reading and some of them kinda jump to rather sudden perfect solutions..

Also the Tarkans followed Aardyn but switched allegiance almost immediately.. he was overcome and vanquished too easily considering that his forces had overwhelmed and taken the Tarkans. But I suppose when they are churning books out so fast stuff like that goes by the wayside and gets ignored because the quality isn't the point for readers of these mass publications.. the point is quantity, the point is to take as much as possible from the readers over multiple books rather than producing fewer better written ones that you need to charge more for.. they're also having to pay multiple authors off each book as Anderle farms the job out to writing teams.. hence the need for them to maintain writing as a side job and churn them out at speed.. I am as yet undecided as to whether it really works.. I loved the series written about Juliana, different style, different character.. in this there's discrepancy where Juliana repeatedly references her time hiding as a guard while in a relationship with Marcus, but that is not how it appears here.. the relationship didn't happen and Marcus acted totally out of character without any explanation for the sudden change in his allegiance.. this is what happens when you are passing off sections of a bigger plan to different people, errors appear.. mistakes are made and personalities are recreated that don't fit with the original plan.. I find it difficult to let that go.. I also find the reading order overly complex when things are all happening in different places at the same time and so it's not always straightforward as to what should be read first.

    This review is actually for the first four books, which I read in a collection that's no longer available. This first story arc is about a old man who returns to the city he founded, only to discover that his old pupil made it into an oligarchy where only a select few can legally perform magic. He takes under his wing a young woman with a mouth as foul as her magic has potential, and together they lay down the seeds for a revolution. It's not a bad story overall.

The writing is snappy with decent descriptions, but typos are common enough. My biggest complaint is that the story is awfully formulaic. There were virtually no surprises for me and few instances of our heroes being brought low. Also, the ending of the third book made me roll my eyes for some very implausible things. A lukewarm recommendation.

    I just stumbled on this series. I haven't read anything else from the Kurtherian Universe before these. I was sold fast. I thought I'd just give it shot but here I am done with 8 books in under a week and I want more. The characters are relatable, it has humor, power, love, adversity, a big bad guy, a foul mouth but loveable female protagonist. I wish I knew more people who read these books, I desperately want to talk about them with someone lol. Although I had some questions about certain charac I just stumbled on this series.

Although I had some questions about certain characters and their pasts the questions do get answered. Don't feel overwhelmed by the number of books in this universe, it's just more of a great thing! You can just start with this saga but believe me it'll leave you wanting to read everything in this universe.

    WOW!! I absolutely LOVED this series! I've never laughed so much. These books are just amazing. Characters you fall in love with. A world that is "vaguely" familiar, and just a whole lot of fun to read. I haven't read anything else in Kurtherian world, but I think I'm going to start. Age of Magic will most likely be my favorite segment though, as I'm more prone to magic, dragons, and sword and sorcery. I want more of Hannah and the triple B's.

    Great series Never read any of the Kurtherian Gambit series (this follows that series at a later point in time) but find myself wanting to know more about this world. The characters here are engaging (although a bit coarse in their language , at least for my tastes) and the stories are exciting and hard to put down. Looking forward to reading the next books in this series as well as others set in the same universe. Definitely recommend.

    An Epic Tale Definitely a 5 star story! It was so easy to get lost in the lives of the characters; their failures, but especially their loves & triumphs. I would love to have Hadley & Gregory, with Laurel, Devin & Aysa as a side tale. There's at least a trilogy in those five! I'm absolutely impressed & plan on reading more from these Authors.

    Good reading More future world, after another apocalypse the world is recovering and some people get greedy and where there once was equality impression is prevalent. Two young people come out of the slums and take on the oppressor. This series of books makes you want to keep reading to the next without stopping. Great fun and good reading.

    Wonderful Romp It’s hard to classify the series as it is basically a bunch of authors enjoying themselves, there is, for me, a lot wrong with the books (idiomatic language continuity most of all) but, the story pulls you a long and it’s fun AND that is what matters- accept there is a fair chunk of tongue stuck in the cheek and just enjoy

    Good story BUT--- This story could have been told in three books instead of eight if you had stuck to the plot line and left out all the unessary swearing, stupid puns, pointless jokes and sexual innuendoes! This added nothing to the books and became too predictable, repetitive and boring! Try to write as a grown-up next time.

    This is movie quality stuff! Jean meets Gandalf, Conan, Harry and a nice version of Poison Ivy and together, they destroy Sauron's Deathstar. That's the shortlist of characters and a vulgar summary of the plot. Great story. A little cheesy sometimes but well worth the time spent reading! It doesn't get much better than this.

    Late Review I’ve just finished the 8 volume series (some of which I had apparently read in the past). Today is July 10, 2021 so not sure how much of an impact this Review will have, But, I have enjoyed the adventures of each and every chapter of each and every book and would encourage others to take the plunge! Great Job you Guys!!!

    Awesome I love these books, the characters are adorable, the plot is a little basic and the use of modern day terminology can be annoying at some point as the characters would not understand some of it. But all in all a great read and I will be looking for more. It has to have magic,swords and dragons though. I don't do the modern stuff or futuristic stuff.

    Wizardry and sci fi Same stuff as in the early elite books. The mix of wizardry, low and hi tech stuff really does not work for me. Good enough to read but not a page gripper series for me

    Fun,fun fun. I'm a 76 year old grandmother and I loved the ROM Omnibus.The characters are excellently presented. The snarky, dirty-mind innocents kept me laughing guessing and reading right up to the last word. Finis Fun,fun fun.

    Rise of magic series I am imensely sorry to finish this series but am so looking forward to what is going to happen to all the members of the BBB no matter which way they go. The spin offs are going to keep me reading for a long time. Keep up the great storytelling.

    Wow Not happy with the storyline but I love the characters.. They are so diverse and unique yet they work well together.. I would like to see them in a more traditional story..
