Nope, he is immediately thrust into a dangerous situation as the Le Fey society enact their plans. Kelsi has come home with Conryu to get away from her mother, which really makes Maria jealous, but what can she do? Overall I still like the character and the magic system is still interesting, but I got more of the YA feel from this particular story. Simple things that should be obvious or should never have happened in the first place kept popping up (view spoiler)[ How can the department of magic have ONLY 2 wizards? They had to call on Maria's mom to help out and she doesn't even work for the department. When Conryu was in school he had abut 500 classmates. There are about 150 new students each year. Where the hell are they? Also, as soon as there was a problem and they realized they needed help, how come no one thought to ask the teachers at the school for help? Maria did toward the end, but how did it never even occur to anyone else to ask? What about the mayor being controlled by demons and nobody had any clue, even after he ordered the police to kill Conryu? Nobody thought to question that order? Lastly, it seemed overly difficult for the entire group to catch Lady Raven. She was an old lady and yet she was able to run faster than Conryu? While she did use a lot of her minions to attack the group which probably saved her a lot of energy, she was still able to use a lot of magic, even though she had 1/10 of Conryu's power. (hide spoiler)] Still, while I was hoping for a little more complexity/ believability in the scenario, it still was easy to read and kept me engaged. This is a pretty good series.

    Here we are .. this is where the plots laid out in the first book come into fruition. I am going through this series using an audiobook on the Storytel app and I felt couple of jumps take place in the story. The instance when Conryu gets his death mark and the assassination incident in the end. I like how the flow of the story went. It was pretty fast paced. Some characters start to feel redundant and I expect that the author might start finding ways to remove them from the story.

Some characters start to feel redundant and I expect that the author might start finding ways to remove them from the story. Sometimes I feel that the author when he started to write the novel picturing a world where the balance of power between men and women were opposite ( thanks to magic being only capable to be used by women) and then throw in a uber strong powerful male who needs a harem to bring out the best in him. The paradigm of the magic universe also gets extended and I like how the magic systems develop. The conflict points or rather the chemistry of some of the characters could be improved. It is starting to feel like most of the people around Conryu are some sort of baggage that needs to be lugged around. I hope the authors starts giving some leverage and weight in the plots in the upcoming novels. Its a decent read.. a really light one. Feel free to pick it up.

    Relationship Problem I really like this series and the characters, but I am getting tired of the author making Kelsie fall in love with Conryu but not giving her a fair chance. Honestly, its possible for the author to make so that Conryu ends up with Maria and Kelsie specially because of how Kelsie and Maria are starting to understand each other better. Its possible but the author won't do it. I know polygamy is not widely acceptable in society but I would really like for both Maria and Kelsie to Relationship Problem I really like this series and the characters, but I am getting tired of the author making Kelsie fall in love with Conryu but not giving her a fair chance.

    The fourth entry into the Aegis of Merlin solves a lot more plot and clears (mostly) the table of villains. The interesting bit is that you finally find out why the Le Fay Society is doing all this nefarious setup, and it turns out it's a very simple and commonplace motivation (skipped for spoilers). It's refreshing because you expect baffling esoteric reasons, or maybe some gaping character motivation hole, and you have... "normal" reasons.

    Summer after first year. Conryu still fighting. This one just seemed short, too short. Good moving of the pace. Very icky political and (not his) family politics. This one seemed to pull the villain stupid stick, only usable on villains. Well and the police and other protector. All in the name of making Conryu super hero of the story. So far this is my least favorite, because the hero and friends aren't a team. They even state one of the support got caught like a newbie recruit. Summer after first year. Conryu still fighting.

    Good Arc ender Conryu has a nice little crisis and save the city. Personally the fast pace of the book was fine but the length was off. The main battle happens about 3/4 of the way through the book. Good epilogue/setup for next arc, hopefully we will have more second character development. Worth the price.

    I like it more and more Very good story, very well writing. The only problem for is it no harem. Cuz the MC lover is useless and MC dark power only hurt her one day for sure. Sigh.

    Fantastic book with action all the way through. I have been enjoying the series so far and cannot wait for more, but this one really got going with the main character conryu coming out of his shell and showing more of his skills more as a wizard. Cannot wait to see what happens next.

    What doesn't kill you makes you stronger I have read all four books. Each is excellent. Our hero keeps getting stronger as more nasty creatures keep trying to kill him. Good story line and character development. Looking forward to more. What doesn't kill you makes you stronger I have read all four books. Each is excellent.

    I read this book as part of an omnibus. It was well written with interesting characters and a decent plot. However, while the plot and characters seem aimed at a young middle school audience he occasionally included incidents that were very adult making it hard to recommend this book.

    A step up from book three.....an exciting tale filled with lots of action and just enough fighting with and without magic to be thrilling.
