The Paper Magician

Review:

An in­ter­est­ing start to a se­ries, with an orig­i­nal mag­ic sys­tem. Liked the sec­ond one a bit more.

The Serrano Succession (The Serrano Legacy, #6-7)

Review:

I had read "Once a Hero", which is some­thing like the 4th of 7 books in the Ser­rarno se­ries a long time ago on a used book. Then I got a cou­ple more, again out of or­der from the Baen free li­brary.

I quite liked them so I took a chance now at pay­ing the au­thor and get­ting the whole sto­ry by read­ing the three om­nibus edi­tion­s.

Con­clu­sion: I did not like them as much as I re­mem­bered but they are still pret­ty good. They do suf­fer a bit of the hy­per­com­pe­tent sci­fi hero syn­drome, but at least they are not guys.
