Manipulation from the shadows

In the second entry in the Metal Mage series Mason, Aurora and Cayla go to help Cedis from the bandits that are harassing the small kingdom. They encounter bandits on their way to the kingdom which sets up the bad guy for the second book and the main threat to Cayla's home. Mason gets to explore more of the world, but most of the world building is more or less put on hold, as he deals with the current threat. The setup for the next book promises to flesh out some more of the world the characters inhabit.

Overall I enjoyed spending time with all the characters and the story this book told. There were a few odd things in the book such as a kingdom with seemingly under 100 soldiers in its army, but the "kings" maybe are just the names for lords in this world since it is some new world we are learning with the main character. The relationship with Cayla, Aurora and Mason is the strength of the book and their interplay and their camaraderie is what pushes the series for me. Also, the "Master" is ever present in the shadows and seemingly manipulating lots of chaotic occurrences in the world.

The narration by Jessica Threet and Christopher Boucher is great and they really deliver great performances throughout. The voices and delivery are all distinct and varied, bringing the world to life. I look forward to anything they narrate in the future. A good follow up for anyone that has read the first book, and it promises an interesting third book.

The continuing Adventures of Mason Flynt

This latest entry in the Metal Mage saga sees Mason, Aurora, and Cayla journey to Cedis to confront the growing crisis. In this volume, Mason learns a couple of new tricks and there's more world building focusing on Cayla's home of Cedis. Overall, the story was great, characters were great as always, the action was thrilling as well, and the voice over did a great job as well, If you like Eric Valls work these audio books are a great buy.

Good follow up, cant wait for next

The story picked up well, the characters continued to evolve and the world is getting bigger and more detailed. There where a few to many graphic scenes but that is par for the course these days...

Good but characters need to be consistent within themselves and...

I am enjoying these books.
However, there are a few problems : slightly veiled spoilers

The author has instigated an incredibly short timeline in order to heighten suspense, in my opinion. I also consider it to be a lazy trope. It just makes things less reasonable and the main character behaves stupidly because of it. I would expect the guy to be dead in the first book, or early in this one, and he literally just keeps working himself into the ground day after day and week after week with no clue about anything, but inexplicably (inconvenient for the story) doesn’t cause him any issues at all.

The women are capable but are constantly written to be excluded, often all praise is laid on the guy, to the complete exclusion of the ladies who were instrumental and even critical, and the dickwad goes along with it...doesn’t say a word, doesn’t share the credit, and the ladies don’t bat an eye, seems out of character.

Overall enjoyable though

Stirling engine

It seems that Eric didn't learned the most important thing about the stirling engine. It is very silent! That is why it's used in submarines. A roaring stirling engine must be a magical special!
I do like the story even if I object to thr roaring stirling engine.

Don’t waste your time!

What a disappointment! The first book was entertaining, but this was so D- high schooler it was shocking. Every encounter you hear the Phrase “ fierce grin” and we/ I own them / him payback. The female characters are never developed ( just their bodies and eye rolls). You have these supposed tough females who don’t really do anything. Don’t buy this book you will be disappointed

A terrific sequel

This book takes place very shortly after the first series. This time, Mason and the girls head to Kayla‘s kingdom to try and help it out. Mason‘s power takes an interesting twist and the group welcome a new “member“ to the family! I won’t see much more than this, other than to say, if you like the first book, you’ll love this one as well!

loved it

Loved the second book of the series, the story continues nicely. cant wait for book 3 .. :)
The narration is fantastic and you don't need a characters name to know who's speaking.
