Elisha Magus by E.C. Ambrose

elisha magus ambrose e c

Elisha worked night and day, both tending to the wounded soldiers and protecting them from the physician's experiments. Even so, he soon found that he had a talent for a surprising and deadly sort of magic, and was drawn into the clandestine world of sorcery by the enchanting young witch Brigit—who had baffling ties to his past, and ambitious plans for his future. Though the book is crammed with graphically violent incidents all the way to the last page, the pacing rambles, as if the story might have been contained in one novel but has been stretched out into a series. No one is safe, and with necromancers on the prowl, death is not a true escape. I won't mind meeting the characters every now and then, but I am not going to go out and look for them really.

elisha magus ambrose e c

Synopsis: This is the second book of the Dark Apostle series. Elisha may be the only man who can stop it. Most of this is action-packed and very quick-paced. There are many political intrigues as well as magical battles that are terrifying and exciting. Yet even Brigit did not understand the terrible power Elisha could wield, until the day he was forced to embrace it and end the war
by killing the king.

Elisha is no longer the lowly barber he was, but it is hard to tell exactly who he is now. He must track where Brigit hid the talisman, while he evades her new betrothed — the king.

Elisha Magus

elisha magus ambrose e c

Elisha worked hard to prevent the physician from using the soldiers as guinea pigs for his medical experiments. Where rumors of their passing go, death follows. We do not store files, because it is prohibited. Because, hidden behind the politics of court and castle, it is magic that offers power in its purest form. With no other options, Elisha accepted a devil's bargain from Lucius, a haughty physician, to avoid death by hanging—by serving under the sadistic doctor as a battle surgeon of the king's army, at the front lines of an unjust war. Because, hidden behind the politics of court and castle, it is magic that offers power in its purest form.

ELISHA MAGUS: THE DARK APOSTLE

elisha magus ambrose e c

I live quietly in New England with my family, where I have just found the right dog to defend the new apple trees from the local whitetail deer population. And then there are--there may be--the necromancers , whose methods, motives, and very existence remain mysterious. I love when I find books like that. We meet several new characters that look to be important to the resolution of the third volume and they are interesting and fully-developed. Necromancers who claim the power of death. Yet even Brigit did not understand the terrible power Elisha could wield, until the day he was forced to embrace it and end the war.

England in the fourteenth century: a land of poverty and opulence, prayer and plague, witchcraft and necromancy. Though I missed the first book enough background is given that the second book is an easy understandable read. Magic is not a means to greater glory—unless you crave the glory of the flame. But even Brigit did not understand the terrible power Elisha could wield, until the day he was forced to embrace it and end the war. I really want to like this series. But death follows Elisha, too.

Elisha Magus (The Dark Apostle, #2) by E.C. Ambrose

elisha magus ambrose e c

A gritty read for those who like realism as well as hope in their fantasy. I soon found the proper groove. He finally ended the war by using it to kill the king. While not overwhelming, the audience will get a sense of the grim backdrop of Medieval England. The author has definitely designed an interesting world, I am just not sure its Fourteenth Century England. There is also very little magic for how amazing they make his out to be. Even so, he soon found that he had a talent for a surprising and deadly sort of magic, and was drawn into the clandestine world of sorcery by the enchanting young witch Brigit--who had baffling ties to his past, and ambitious plans for his future.

Even so, he soon found that he had a talent for a surprising and deadly sort of magic, and was drawn into the clandestine world of sorcery by the enchanting young witch Brigit—who had baffling ties to his past, and ambitious plans for his future. Why does it seem like his enemies are the ones most keen to call him Elisha Rex? With an affinity for death, Elisha sees similarities between himself and necromancers. Ambrose has crafted a shining tale of one man's humanity and courage. But his enemies lurk in markets and churches, abducting innocents to torture and kill, using these slayings to open a passage through the Valley of the Shadow of Death. But even Brigit did not understand the terrible power Elisha could wield, until the day he was forced to embrace it and end the war. While not overwhelming, the audience will get a sense of the grim backdrop of Medieval England.
