Publisher's Summary

Enslaved and Forced to Fight Dragons 

This box set contains over 2,000 pages of epic space fantasy, and tells the complete saga, with a real ending. Yes, we also have a roleplaying game, and a sequel series! 

“If you grew up playing D&D, Rifts, Spelljammer, or Starcraft, and want to see magic in space done right, then get ready to lose the next sixty hours of your life.” — The Author’s Totally Biased Friend 

Tech Mage (Book one) 

Aran awakens in chains with no memory. He’s conscripted into the Confederate Marines as a Tech Mage, given a spellrifle, then hurled into the war with the draconic Krox and their Void Wyrm masters. 

Void Wyrm (Book two) 

Major Voria stands ready to accept the cost for her actions at Marid. Stripped of command and resources, Voria must find a ship and rally a crew. Somewhere within the Umbral Depths lays a hidden world, a world that the dead god Marid intended her to find.  

Spellship (Book three) 

Voria, Aran, and Nara survived their trip into the Umbral Depths. They retrieved the Talon, and are now searching for the First Spellship, the key to victory in their war against the Krox. Their search leads them to Virkonna, the home of the Last Dragonflight, a world where Dragons still rule. The world where Aran was born. 

War Mage (Book four) 

The Krox have finally reached their end game, and the sector will never be the same. Their relentless fleet darkens the skies of New Texas, home of the fabled Ternus shipyards. Their only hope lies with their sworn allies, the Shayans. But the Shayans refuse to help. 

Krox Rises (Book five) 

Nebiat has seized godhood, and now controls Krox, the most powerful elder god in the sector. Both Ternus and Shaya know she is coming, but their preparations cannot save them. She launches a strike at Ternus that cripples their home world, and shatters their fleets.  

Nefarius (Book six) 

Krox's assault on Shaya has been foiled, but the cost was bitter. Ternus lies in ruins, its gravity doubled by a god. Shaya is a paradise, but one populated by a mere handful of survivors. Only one power strong enough to oppose Krox remains...The Last Dragonflight. 

Godswar (Book seven) 

Nefarius has risen. She is implacable. Unstoppable. God after god is fallen and consumed, and each time the terrible dragon-goddess grows stronger.  

One possibility of victory remains. Aran, Nara, and Kazon discover their true purpose, left by the elder god Xal when he planned for his own demise. With this contingency they have one chance to oppose Nefarius. One chance to stop the goddess that will devour everything. 

Want to make your own characters? The Magitech Chronicles RPG system allows you to be part of the action long after you finish the books. Learn more at magitechchronicles.com or by googling "Magitech Chronicles World Anvil".

The definition of great idea but poor execution

Magic meets space travel sounds awesome but the characters are super generic it has a predictable plot and stunted dialogue. That being said the writing style is enjoyable and some of the themes could have been interesting

All in all I hope the auther keeps writing because this could have been one of the greats

Complete crap

god damn this was wretched. i barely made it through book 1, and quit only part way through book 2. this was tepid wet garbage. none of the characters are likable. none of the factions are likable. NOTHING is likable here.

everybody is this arrogant smug prick who treats everybody else like lukewarm piss for no real reason. the "goodguys" routinely take prisoners of slavers, pirates, or otherwise innocent people, erase their personalities and memories giving them hollywood amnesia, and send them out to die as meat shields. the supposed good guys. and by the end of book 1 the main chump buys it completely.

a really annoying thing is the aspect of mindwiping. its obviously common as fuck, and the failure who wrote this failed to even use it as a literary device. the whole point here is so the main character can act as a stand in for the reader and ask "wtf is that?" but its always met with derision and ridicule from everybody around him, who know he had his memory erased and could not possibly know what it is. all it does is make unlikable characters even easier to hate. despite the intent of us evidently suppose to develop an attachment to them. the only attachment i can figure to liken it to is a cancerous wart.

i can only speak for book 1 and part of 2, but god damn it leaves a bad taste with the mediocre writing, poorly done plot, repugnant characters, and general failing in every aspect. its not even close to "so bad its good".

Waste of money

I had hoped the long omnibus book would be a good deal, but it was a total waste of time and money. I could not suspend my disbelief. There a few good books that mix tech and magic. this is not one of those books.

Combined SciFi and Fantasy saga with some comedy

I was given a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

TLDR - The author created an original universe with dragons, demons, magic spell pistols/rifles, and much more, combining SciFi and Fantasy in a humorous and entertaining way. The characters are great, and most grow and develop excellent backstories and the series goes on. There are book recaps at the beginning of each book, which I found highly entertaining. The narrator does a great job with all the voices and giving each character a distinct voice. And, there are a ton of characters. I really liked the way he voiced the dragons. Overall, this is a great series, and an incredible bargain at 65 hours for one credit. More detailed reviews below.

Due to this being a multibook compilation, my review of later books may include spoilers for previous books, so please stop reading after my review for book 1 if you’re worried about spoilers.

Book 1 is a truly original sci-fi/fantasy story, with magic, dragons, power suits, and zombies. It has a captivating start that held my interest throughout the novel. The author did a great job writing the characters, and I grew to appreciate all of them, but Sgt Cruz was definitely my favorite. Especially since his lines are generally the funniest. The narrator did a great job with the characters’ voices and accents. It sounds like he really gets into the story, especially in the more action-oriented parts. Overall, this is an excellent listen if you're looking for an action SciFi/Fantasy novel with spaceships, dragons, and stuff.

Book 2 is a great continuation of the story. It’s fun to watch the characters grow stronger. There is excellent character growth all around, both in terms of fleshing out their histories and personalities and in strength and power. Sgt Cruz is still my favorite character, but Ikadra (spelling?) is a close second. The story still moves along at a good pace, with action throughout the whole novel. I’m excited to dive into book 3.

Book 3 is another awesome installment for the series. Sgt Cruz needs to step aside because Ikadra is my new favorite character. There is still character growth, but it’s mostly in Aran, Nora, and Voria. Unfortunately, most of the other characters are kind of static. They do grow in power, but they don’t really develop as characters. I am worried, with all the power that the main characters are gathering, that by book 7, they will have all the answers to everything and there won’t be any struggle. All that being said, this was still a highly entertaining book, and Ikadra provides some great laughs, pew pew pew. More talking weapons, please. Now, onto book 4!

Book 4 is a pretty big change for the series. All of the stakes are raised, and we’re looking at the big picture now. There’s a ton of stuff going on, and even the so-called “good guys” (term used very loosely) can’t be trusted. We’re introduced to a few new characters. Erica, the reporter, is great. Speaking of characters, we see tons of character development in this book, easing my complaint in the previous book. This was a very enjoyable book, and I’m looking forward to book 5.

Book 5 is my favorite book of the series so far. There’s more Cruz, more Ikadra, and more Shaya, who are all great characters. Cruz totally rocks some masculine magenta armor, like a boss. We have a ton of character growth, and as with previous books that means both in power level and character development. Character growth includes ships and weapons as well, so I’m looking forward to the back-talking weapon that was promised to us way back in one of the first book recaps. I Can’t wait for book 6 to see what kind of shenanigans Nebiat and Nefarious get up to.

Book 6 is probably my least favorite of the series so far. The author introduced mechs, finally, which was awesome. But, this one has a ton of politicking, which I don’t enjoy as much as the action and comedy. There was a lot of plot building which is probably necessary for the big finale, coming up next! Ultimately, it’s difficult to top book 5 for me. Onward, to the ultimate showdown of ultimate destiny!

Book 7 provides a thrilling battle royale style conclusion to the saga, with tons of action and fight scenes that have been getting built up for several books now. In the last couple of hours of the book, I found myself not wanting to pause at all and staying up late to listen to just one more chapter. Overall, it was a great listen and a satisfying conclusion to the series.

The narrator does a great job giving distinct voices to all of the characters, and there are a ton, over 65 hours. I only found a couple of mispronunciations (library and soldering) which is impressive in a book of this size. I especially liked the voices he used for dragons, and his accents sounded great too.

Good but, Narrator can't speak english.

So, Aron is not pronounced Erin or Airin. You can't spell Airin backwards and get Nora. You can't spell Erin backwards and get Nora. The Narrator says some sort of Airin or Erin pronunciation. Aron is said as "Ar On" not "Air On" not "Ehr On". The name is ARON and it pisses me off the entire book because he can't read a simple name. He doesn't even have a weird accent. Just Can't speak English. Sigh... Other than that. It is a good book but hell it is ruined with this.

Great story so far

I enjoyed this story quite a bit! If I had a complaint it’s that the readers voice is so damn relaxing. I’ve called asleep multiple times while listening because of how soothing and relaxing his voice is. So not really a negative as a nod of respect to the readers voice

Chris Fox is simply fun to read

I have the Kindle version and soon I will own the physical box set. I love the story and world built. It makes you wonder and want more.

Fun fact: The writing gets better as the books go on.

PS : Check out the RPG by Chris Fox 🦊

Enjoyable ride from beginning to end.

There are some quibbles I have with this series, but 65 hours for one credit will let me overlook that it sounds like the narrator says "Libary" instead of library, or that people seem to overlook really obvious potential in things they're told. While there are plenty of instances where I'd have liked more information, a lot of the world building is set up for the tabletop RPG this series has.

It's very obviously set up like a game, with characters casting spells that are certain levels, or getting equipment that is Mark 5 or what have you. It's really coherent and holds together well, for something with a lot of density. I'm sure there are details I missed and I might have to hear a name a few times before I could remember who they were. Still, there's a lot of potential for the universe and I look forward to future releases in this setting.

Give me more

Realy good series... At the start it'd hard to get your head around the magic and the different aspects. But half way through the first book you get a good grasp onto it. Glad I listened to it and I'm looking forward to future books comming from this one.

Blandly mediocre

Pretty boring really. Narrator is not particularly great at placing the correct emphasis on the right places. Writer is not very skilled. Really hate that he uses inept or incorrect adverbs for speech descriptors. And consistently repeats adjectives and verbs in the same sentences making for poor writing. Story just didn't catch my imagination and majority of characters underdeveloped. Logic of magical theory sketchy at best.
