A young soldier...desperate to return home to help his mother on their family farm, volunteers for their experiments, with unexpected results. A young girl...taken from her family, abused, and handed over for a life of servitude is called to join the experiments. Can these two young heroes overcome their fears to stand against such great evil? Read The Force of Magic to find out.

  • Blending magical fantasy adventure, with superheroes and villains, this is a fantasy story, unlike anything you've ever read.

  • Book One of the Trilogy - Book Two is coming in mid-2023 and Book Three is in time for Christmas 2023.

Readers are saying:

  • A fantasy world to get lost in

  • You begin to ask yourself what a hero really is, and what you would be willing to do for freedom

  • This genre isn't my usual choice, but I started reading and it's gripping!

  • The story is very character driven and I want to know what happens

  • This is exceptional writing. I have to keep reading

So now onto my review! As of today, I give THE FORCE OF MAGIC ⭐⭐⭐⭐!

I must first admit that I'm still reading this book. I received the ARC a week ago and have only been able to read a third of the book. So far, I'm enjoying the story and fully immersed in this world of magic that's ruled by a corrupt government called The Dominion.

I like the main character, a young man named Trace, and the opening line, "Every day was the same for as long as Trace could remember," is compelling and had me invested instantly. The second POV is of a young girl named Perin Ryda, whose family and the village were destroyed by the Dominion and she soon was imprisoned as well. Both have gripping backstories and instantly I was rooting for them both.

I highly recommend this book if you are a big fan of THE WITCHER and epic high fantasies such as SHADOW AND BONE.

A side note, I love the artwork and illustrations. Every illustration has an organic feel to it as if the world is wrapped up in the magic.

About Hunter Chadwick:

As a lifelong lover of books, I've always had a great appreciation for writers and their craft. Over the course of my 50+ years living in different places around the world, I've written a few things, but never took the time to sit down and try to write down any of the books I've dreamed up. In 2021 that changed. A new opportunity to share stories, one episode at a time, prompted me to try my hand at it.

I never could have imagined the positive response my writing received and now I'm happy to expand those stories to a wider audience to build upon what I've already written. Nothing would make me happier than to know that you enjoy my stories. Please find me on social media @HunterCAuthor to send me your feedback.

About me: I grew up in the Midwest and went to a big state school known as much for their football team as anything else. I studied English Literature and History. It was there that I met my wife and we fell in love. We were married when I was in graduate school and during our first few years working after graduation, God showed us the opportunities to be involved in His work around the world.

Since 2000, we've lived outside of the United States, having many amazing experiences and meeting people from around the globe. My experiences traveling and my background in counseling are highly influential in my writing.

Once again, thank you for being my reader! It is my privilege to share my stories with you.
