By Alexey Glushanovsky
The realm that Glushanovsky paints is wonderfully-saturated with parts from all around the fable genre—though this isn't easily a story of sword and sorcery. those classical fable figures are well-executed and feature the sensibility of a professional Russian fable novel, specifically considering that this is often a part of a tetralogy formerly released in Russia. Readers of George R.R. Martin, Raymond Feist and Stephen R. Donaldson will adore the line TO MAGIC.
There are interesting parallel narratives at paintings within the highway TO MAGIC. On one point now we have the good-looking playboy Oleg Davidov as a modern day university pupil; on one other point now we have Oleg the demon savior of the princess; and on one other point, Oleg the monster hunter. Like Harry Potter, Oleg used to be a regular boy until eventually he's magnificently remodeled into anything supernatural, that is later used as a commentary/comic aid device as soon as Oleg is a demon. That’s what you get if you dabble in magic with a demoness. infrequently does Oleg ever strategy the realm of myth as an interloper actually he feels correct at domestic in that international.
After Oleg resolves the princess’s plight, he then takes to the air to profit magic on the college yet now not ahead of Oleg can slay a few monsters in a couple of Herculean feats on his option to turning into a scholar of magic. Readers also will research much approximately Russian popular culture from interpreting the line TO MAGIC. The complicated tale, relocating alongside at a brisk velocity, provides an clever tackle the character of delusion gods and the human courting to either gods and monsters.
