Publisher's 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 Arcadian Guards, Hannah has no choice but to trust in the aid of a strange, old wizard who offers her the gift of unimaginable power.

But power has consequences, and soon, Hannah is at the center of a citywide war to take back the future that was stolen from them. 

Can she control the power that courses through her? Can she unite a team of heroes from different walks of life? Can she bring justice to Arcadia?

The Rise of Magic is an epic 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, the Rise of Magic tells an entirely new story of the future of our world and of the heroes and villains who battle for control of its destiny.

Listen now and discover the Rise of Magic....

Building up for more?

For me the narration was meh it did get better but it was a struggle through the first book or maybe I got used to it..

The storyline was promising but then it suddenly rushed ahead... not enough development for me, im all for OP MC but this was a bit much...

There are more novels so maybe they get better?? I won't know though as im done with these....

WONDERFUL

Restriction: The Rise of Magic, Book 1 my first read/listen from author C.M. Raymond. I love this incredible amazing story, the personality of the characters and the voice inflections of the narrator.
Reawakening: The Rise of Magic, Book 2 my second read/listen from author C.M. Raymond picks up where Book 1 left off. Well developed characters, a story line that grew on you as you continued until you couldn’t wait to read the finish.
Rebellion: The Rise of Magic, Book 3 my third read/listen from author C.M. Raymond picks up where Books 1 & 2 left off. I can’t wait to read book 4 in the series. I’m sure that author C.M. Raymond has more good writing waiting in the wings!
AMAZING! Revolution: Age Of Magic - A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Rise of Magic Book 4) my fourth read/listen from author C.M. Raymond picks up where Book 3 left off. I love this incredible amazing fantasy. Reminiscent of The Lord of The Rings in scope, the personality of the characters and the voice inflections of the narrator add depth to the listening experience. Well developed characters, a story line that continues to grow on you as you continued until you couldn’t wait to read the finish. A problem with audio books is that you can’t just read faster as the excitement mounts to get to the end faster. I can’t wait to read book 5 in the series. I’m sure that author C.M. Raymond has more good writing waiting in the wings! (RIP Marley January 20, 2014 - July 24, 2018).

Very entertaining!

Book 1 Restriction:
Restriction is an offshoot of the wildly popular Kutherian Gambit series and the authors did a wonderful job of keeping the theme awareness alive but giving the new series it’s own flare & structure. The story is entertaining, engaging, magical, and tragic. The characters are likable and believable. Book 1 is definitely a “build up book” for more things to come and not all storylines are tied up at the end of this story. The narrator did a great job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene! I’m definitely looking forward to book 2!

Book 2 Reawakening:
Book 2 in the Rise of Magic series takes up where book 1 leaves off. The team gathers resources to plan their next step all while remaining incognito and hidden. I really like this series! The characters are likable and believable. Their strength of morality and street hardness just draws you in! Looking forward to book 3! The narrator did a fantastic job with providing unique voices for each character and appropriate tone inflections for each scene!

Book 3 Rebellion:
The story starts where book 2 lets off. The team’s infiltration continues but the enemy is weary and.... There is a torture scene, that thankfully doesn’t go into the majority of the detail it could have. The underdogs are real, likable, and believable. The book nicely adds to the overall story arc. The narrator did a great job!

Book 4 Revolution:
Nice finish with several battles. I really like how the story has concluded. Several threads are wrapped up but the future is still open. Looking forward to the next book! The narrator did a great job!

So so good!

I loved this set!! This is actually the first book I have read/listened to in the Katharian Universe and it will definitely not be the last. Great job on all sides, authors and narrator.

Great story of a girl and a rebellion!

I’ll be honest I had already purchased the books and was given the audiobooks. Complete honest opinion.

I had purchased the books previously (to be honest mostly because I love the Michael Anderle’s previously published books) and had not had time with my daily driving to read this series yet. When asked if I wanted the books I of course jumped at the chance to listen.

This story is about a girl, Magic, coming into her own and a rebellion. The main character Hanna is well written along with the other characters in the book. The books bring you in with wanting to know about Hannah and how she was once labeled as a unlawful to the leader and figure of the rebellion l. From start to the end she grows makes friends and along the way enemies. This is a awesome world that ties in with others in the Universe with out having to know all of the history behind the time Hannah lives in or have had read any of the other books.

What a great story

This is one of the first series I’ve listened to on audible that I hadn’t already read as books, and it was a great experience. The performance of the book was really immersive and kept me invoked within the story and the story itself had enough twist and turns to keep me entertained, but not confused.

I also loved that it was a boxed set.

Great Adventure and Friendships

I love this series. It's about adventure, fun, friendships, witty, and protection against the bad guys. Not one but many great characters. The narrator does a spectacular job.

Good but could do without the cursing

I like the story and understand when some curse, but why do much? Also, if you are going to curse so much, change it up a little.
