    Good book! Hmm I liked this story less than Arena, but it was still a amazing. The entire new world is a culture shift for the main character, he don't know his own abilities enough, the political climate, the social repercussions of him being here. I don't think this series will be done in only four or six book; sound like a formula for a decalogy. The guild he is part of is made of misfits and hard case and loved it. Each of the MC's teammates is unique and funny in their own way. I hope that Good book! Hmm I liked this story less than Arena, but it was still a amazing.

    A chore to read through. The book was not badly written. Unfortunately, the pace is so slow I just wanted it to end. I stopped half-way through, so keep in mind that what I write is just about what I read. tl;dr To sum it up, the magic is boring, the plot is thin, the characters are not all bad, but could use some improvement, and the pace is very slow. At least it doesn't have bad grammar. I'll try to finish it and if I feel differently at the end I'll update this review. So, the main character A chore to read through. The book was not badly written. Unfortunately, the pace is so slow I just wanted it to end. I stopped half-way through, so keep in mind that what I write is just about what I read. tl;dr To sum it up, the magic is boring, the plot is thin, the characters are not all bad, but could use some improvement, and the pace is very slow. At least it doesn't have bad grammar. I'll try to finish it and if I feel differently at the end I'll update this review. So, the main character is a "manipulator". That is, a mage who can manipulate magic itself. Where did I read that before? The magic works by intent, too. Unfortunately, together, those two things make it not as exciting as it sounds, because it just means his magic is improvisation. He never prepares for anything, just wings it, and it's boring. "oh shit, shit is going down! what do I do? I'll just wave my hands around, it worked so far" is basically every battle in the book. Being a manipulator also means more than just that. It's also a death sentence. If anyone finds out about his identity, it's good-bye cruel world for our MC. That does not discourage every party member from calling him "manipulator" every few pages. If it was me being called like that, I'd be pissed! "WTF! Are you trying to get me killed!?". The plot itself is basically driven by a single character, Lavinia, the horned bitchy lady. She is impulsive and screws up at everything, and nobody calls out her bullshit (maybe once, but not emphatically enough for what her blunders warranted). I was basically asking myself the whole time "what is Lavinia going to screw up next?"

    I could never figure out why for example the party doesn't use sentries in the most dangerous places. They just all go to sleep and unrealistically wake up. Gabriel is a bit too stupid for my taste. He only learns new things on the fly in live or death situations. For Christ sake he gets 3 magic books halfway but never even looks in them. So there is no real good learning curve.

    A slow start to tye series with potential to become an awesome series Not as awesome as Arena by the author but this book is still enjoyable. It has nice, funny and unique characters. I like guild kind of stories because of my love for Goblin Slayer. This series has the potential to be an awesome if the author develops MC character well. Will definitely pick up the next one!

    I just blew through books 1-4 in this series so, to save time I am going to give them all the same review. First, if you enjoy straight-forward D&D style stories you should be able to enjoy these books. They aren't great but good enough. I'm a pretty critical reader and so my criticisms follow. If you enjoy simplistic D&D style books you may want to skip the rest of this review and just try out book 1 in this series. In book 1, the MC is transported to a D&D style world by a goddess. I just blew through books 1-4 in this series so, to save time I am going to give them all the same review. First, if you enjoy straight-forward D&D style stories you should be able to enjoy these books. They aren't great but good enough. I'm a pretty critical reader and so my criticisms follow. If you enjoy simplistic D&D style books you may want to skip the rest of this review and just try out book 1 in this series. In book 1, the MC is transported to a D&D style world by a goddess. The goddess chose the MC because he would become a "manipulator" in the new world. Manipulators are magic users who can sense and interact with manna directly. This means a manipulator can prevent , for example, a fire mage from casting spells. As a result manipulators were hunted to extinction by the other mages years ago. This leads us to the first truly stupid aspect of this book. The MC's big plan to not be killed by other mages is to tell people he is an air mage. However the MC puts no effort into this. For example, the MC doesn't learn what an air mage can do and attempt to mimic that. Neither does the MC put any effort into finding a place he can live safely. He just stays put in the city he is dropped into in spite of it being the center of power for the mages that want to kill him. The MC doesn't really even attempt to learn how many continents or seas there are. Nor does the MC attempt to learn how mages detect manipulators or even the general abilities of mages. I kept expecting the mages to discover the MC by simply scrying for him. In the early books the author's failings at writing fight scenes isn't obvious since it doesn't apply to the MC & co. attacking a dragon. In book 4, however, the MC & co. fight a bandit gang and it seems pretty clear that the author doesn't really think about these scenes. For example, the bandit leader starts the fight not by attacking anyone but by pointlessly throwing a smoke bomb. This is supposedly a prepared ambush so why didn't the bandit have his entire gang kill the MC & co. from cover with spells, arrows and bolts? Instead the bandit leader throws the smoke bomb and disappears from the fight while all of his fellows are killed. Then, rather than running away, the bandit leader pointlessly attacks the MC, an attack which, even if successful, would still get the bandit leader killed by the rest of the MC's party. (There is an even worse scene where the MC and co. attack an entire ballroom full of 100 people but, fortunately for the MC, they each wait their turn to be killed.) The MC never experiments with his magic. Over and over again the MC is in a fight, wants something to happen, it happens and that's it. For example, in book 1 the MC breaks his knife in a fight and out of desperation creates a manna blade for his knife. Afterwords does the MC attempt to lengthen the blade or change its shape in any way? No. Does the MC attempt create an entire manna knife so he doesn't have to carry around his broken knife for 4 books? No. Does the MC attempt to create the knife away from his body so he can strike enemies from a distance? No. This is just stupid and shows a lack of imagination on behalf of the author. The MC also never practices knife fighting and yet he can fight better than trained guards and people who grew up knife fighting. This makes no sense but then it makes no sense that the MC only ever carries a single knife. The need to hide his magic in no way prevents the MC from learning other weapons. Bottom line: There is a lot of unnecessary stupidity in these books but, if you can turn off your brain and enjoy a D&D style story you should be able to enjoy these books.

    Not much The book jumps in fast but drags with the mission by sidetrack the hero. Hero use his power Adequate But He could be smarter with the use Of power. Book takes a side quest but the hero still meets his rivals at the end at the same time despite two days behind, but wait time slip he only half a day ahead despite also delaying our hero. The action was ok by there was no comedy like his other book arena so the dialog was lacking. I like the characters but the world building was lacking and Not much The book jumps in fast but drags with the mission by sidetrack the hero.

I enjoyed the book and will continue reading the series but it was not as crippling or as an entertaining as other harem books. Rather have an sex scene that feels organic then one shove in on the last page. Took most the book to figure out the difference between the female characters.

    Great start to a series (hopefully) The standard fish out of water story here with the MC being pulled from California to a plane of existence with the standard magic, orcs, elves etc. Being able to use an outlawed/extinct type of magic whose users were hunted and killed, and trying to work out how to use it is all part of this enjoyable story. Its a well written book, as enjoyable as his other book Arena which is more a sci-fi book. This one does seem to be heading towards being a harem tale, Great start to a series (hopefully) The standard fish out of water story here with the MC being pulled from California to a plane of existence with the standard magic, orcs, elves etc. Being able to use an outlawed/extinct type of magic whose users were hunted and killed, and trying to work out how to use it is all part of this enjoyable story.

    Once again.... Logan Jacobs has made another great book. Personally I think he is right up the with the other top litrpg authors. This story was still original even with a common environment and plot start. The character development and plot are well balanced and detailed in a way that keeps you engaged, and one might even say enthralled. Great job and the best part IMHO is that the MC is a wuss even though he is new to the world and he isn't strangely knowledgeable about his formerly unknown Once again....

    A fast paced fantasy adventure. This story is a fast paced and well written fantasy adventure about a young man who is summoned to another world by an adventuring parties cleric to serve as a mage. The main gist of the story is our protagonist learning to fit in with these hardened adventurers and figure out how to use his innate magic.

    Well Done I wasnt really expecting much with the title being God of Magic, but the author didnt make the MC too op where hed ruin the book. Although I wish there was a little more of a training side instead of learning in the moment about his abilities. All in all, the book was well written and the characters werent dull, cant wait to start book 2.

    Great Start To The Series Gabriel is transported, by a Goddess, to a realm to help a guild. They are successful on quests with his help. I like the action, humor, and romance. Gabriel is a strong character, who grows stronger with more power and confidence. I look forward to the next book.

    Although I have a lot of complaints about the book, the author does manages to flesh out a new and interesting world, with a decent pace and acceptable progress. I would have wished a better exposition of the characters from the guild but I am guessing such a thing will wait for next installments. So even though I didn't love the book I can understand why some might like it.

    What was that last chapter! :O God of Magic was a decently written fantasy book that borrows a lot of the tropes of the LitRPG genre without being a LitRPG. The characters are good, the plot is decent, and the magic system is functional. Everything was looking good, riiiight up until the final chapter when suddenly crammed in Harem setup and S*x scene. WTF O_o

    A goddess transfers a young man from modern america to a fantasy world. He gets part of a 'guild' a kind of adventurer party and solves quest. His powers are those of a banned kind of magic and he has to disguise his profession. I really like the bantering in the group and the quirky personas (especially the orc that knows to value finer life.) Good entertainment.

    Good start for the series! What a great start of a series. I really hope this series continues to be as entertaining as the first one is. The characters are realistic for the setting, and the small sex scene was very much in line for the story. I am looking forward for more adventures in the sequel.

    Very good. The story starts off with a slow pace to get you introduced to everyone. The MC is very enjoyable and engaging he does not spend half the book complaining he just accepts what happened. The pace of the book is good and the fight scenes are interesting. Overall a very good book 1.

    This book had a ok story. But when describing the things happening it was very simple .And there was never a single plot throughout The whole series . It was just a party going On adventures . The writer described the sex more than a story . And sex seem to have no meaning like it was just there . No one really ever talked about it afterwards . The book is pretty boring all and all

    It was very much just ok. I wasn't expecting much going on and I didn't get much coming out. Very by the numbers, nothing really original or creative, and the enemies were basically there to die with no impact on the story beyond forcing the plot where the author wanted it.

    Honestly this book would have been quite a bit better if the character didn't have so much confidence. He jumped right in with out any questions about himself. If anyone jumped in to a new world like this guy did he would be quite a bit more concerned with the fact things are trying to kill him.

    Great! The imagery of this book is wonderful- the world building, character arcs, and plot line drew me in and kept my interest as I read through the novel. This is the first book I have read by Logan Jacob's, but it certainly wont be the last!
