Son Mageborn PDFEPUB #195 Alternate cover edition of ASIN BAJBBMordecai's simple life as the son of a blacksmith is transformed by the discovery of his magical birthrig Mordecai was adopted He has known it his entire life and he loves his adpoted parents dearly He knows nothing of his birth parents but that won't stop the things he inherited from his birth father from completely changing his life Mordecai has magical powers and nothing will ever be the same for himThe Blacksmith's Son first and foremost feels like a young adult novel It's jam packed with standard young adult tropes He's an adopted boy who learns he's special and from a noble family His specialness will change the world The story is chalked full of absurd dialogue that may entice a younger audience but made me roll my eyes I wish the book was simply listed as young adult so I knew what to expect immediatelyThe story engaged me uickly with an action and panic filled prologue It is told from Mordecai's birth mother's perspective on the events that caused Mordecai to live with the Eldrige's The only unfortunate part about this was it ensured that the story would have little mystery as the reader learned about Mordecai's past before he did It also made the book's title largely irrelevant as there is no point when the reader thinks of Mordecai as simply the blacksmith's sonThe magic system in the book was at times shaky First I'd have to say the magic in the book is convenient overall Different people discovered there powers at just the right moments to save the day It runs somewhat contrary to the idea the story provided that mage's needed to have a teacher to learn magic That was true at times but clearly untrue at other times The point of views in the story were challenging The point of views switched uickly at times with little indication they were switching All the characters except Mordecai were telling the story in first person present while Mordecai was a strange mix of first person present and past In than one occasion I imagined a somewhat older Mordecai reading this book to someone and inserting comments along the lines of boy was I foolish There are than a few such instances in the bookThe Blacksmith's Son is an imaginative story that could have used some additional editing
