The Mage’s Devotion

The Northern Alliance and the nations to the south seem to be in a never-ending cycle of war and destruction. Flynn Matthews, a typical farm boy, unfortunately finds himself at a geographical disadvantage during these war times, as he experiences a terrible childhood tragedy which flings him into a world of chaos and magic. After suffering his loss, he is taken in by a local temple to apprentice in the magical arts. When his apprenticeship ends, he is tasked to a secret assignment which is riddled with supernatural complications.

Meet Rich O’Toole

I wrote this series for my love of LITRPG’s, but I often find that many LITRPG’s simply can’t convince me to care enough about the world or the characters. I think this is because the genre is a bit too strict to the gaming structure, and the world just doesn’t seem real enough. I have found a few books that do a better job at this than others, but what I really wanted, was a legitimate fantasy story with slight hints toward gaming mechanics. I think that the gaming world can offer a lot in terms of new takes on magic and the fantasy genre at large, and I hope that I can convince others of this as well. May you enjoy this series as much as I have during the creation of it.
