The gods tore the world apart. Now magic is carefully controlled.
As a recently graduated Mage from the Citadel, Marek upsets many when he decides to go on the frowned-upon World Tour. Intent on creating a mercenary company, Marek discovers an incredibly powerful object that will change the world.
Once the Captain of the Citadel's Guard, Wyatt is now a mercenary and Marek's second in command, a position he knows will eventually force him to make a difficult and life-changing decision.
After escaping her family’s efforts to marry her off, Ako is swept up in an adventure of a lifetime. Forced to evolve, Ako discovers that becoming a warrior is not without cost.
Malevolent is the first book in Echoes of Infinity, an epic fantasy saga full of magic, battles, and twists and turns that will stay with you long after its shocking conclusion.
Author's Note: Malevolent: Book 1 of Echoes of Infinity is complete at 54 chapters and approximately 130k words. It's also around 2.4k words per chapter. No matter what happens, I'm in this for the long haul and you can expect the same level of quality each chapter.
Update Schedule: I'll be releasing 13 chapters week 1, with subsequent chapters released on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4:15 PM EST. I'm currently working on Book 2, which should be ready by the time Malevolent is fully published.

While I like magic, this series seems to treat it as something extremely rare and powerful, as opposed to something common. I think it's quite a breath of fresh air!
The book's start is a bit rough, due to jumping around to different plot threads each chapter, but it seems to settle down around chapter four.
Getting into spoilers now:
The first chapter is great, absolutely perfect writing, I cannot see any flaws in grammar or anything. It's great to introduce the reader to the book, as it combines worldbuilding and action perfectly. The character is cruel and really lets the readers know that this world is not a kindly place to most, especially those who aren't ruling class.
Then after she dies, it jumps like four decades into the future...
Yeah, I didn't really like this at first, I knew there probably would be something like this occuring, but it completely rips out of the main story. The character also seems to make a really illogical choice reguarding his families safety, to keep them out of danger, he ends up putting them in more danger.
And as soon as you question that, it just rips away into a new plotline nine years in the future.
Despite all that, I rather enjoy the current plot thread! And while I can't really make any large comments, I feel that the book could do without the second chapter, instead moving it to another space (I'm probably wrong, but that's just my experience as a new reader)
Try this one out! It's long and it will quench your thirst for a nice fantasy novel with quality characters and world without being overly complicated!
