Natta Magus is getting used to life in Augustan Rome. While it doesn’t have twenty-first century perks like baseball or coffee, at least his unique magical skills can help his Aventine Hill friends.
But the Roman government has noticed his talents, and they call on him when a religious artifact from Rome’s ancient past is stolen. Natta discovers the thief is a magus as powerful as him, which should be impossible in this era. Unlike him, the magus wants Rome to die screaming.
SHADOW MAGUS is the sequel to CITIZEN MAGUS, and book two in the Journals of Natta Magus series, by the author of the Roman sci-fi/alt-history Codex Antonius saga.
SHADOW MAGUS is available on Amazon Kindle and in trade paperback.
Remington Blakes, a magus from a 21st century where magic powers the world, has a big problem.
His former mentor, William Ford, stranded him in ancient Rome without a memory as to how or why. Well a guy has to eat, so he’s forced to eke out a living as a magus-for-hire among Rome’s plebeians. He calls himself “Natta Magus” since his real name sounds too Germanic to the discriminating Romans.
So when Natta learns that Ford has conjured daemons to kidnap a senator’s young daughter, he jumps at the chance to track Ford down. Natta chases him to Rome’s Germanic frontier to not only rescue the child, but learn the terrible secret behind why he left Natta in Rome.
CITIZEN MAGUS is available on Amazon Kindle and in trade paperback.
