Customer Reviews of A Deadly Game Of Magic

Reviews

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not bad If your looking for a good ADVENTURE book , this isn't it. The author focused more on the characters and their feelings towards each other and the events that are happening around them than in the plot and story. You keep waiting for something amazing to happen, like a big BANG but it never does. I guess it depends on what kind of books you like, adventure or a detailed description of your characters.Overall it wasn't bad.
