Aubrey Fitzwilliam is the son of a prominent ex-prime minister. He's also brilliant at magic, but he's stuck at military school. At least he has his best friend, George, there to back him up. George would follow Aubrey anywhere - and with Aubrey's talent for thinking up impulsive and daring schemes that will get them both in trouble, that's no easy thing to do. At a royal hunting party, the boys discover a golem, a magical creature built to perform one task: to kill Prince Albert. Aubrey and George are hailed as heroes for foiling the murder attempt - but who sent the golem, and why? Aubrey is far too curious to let the authorities handle this one, and he and George start investigating

Lots of convenient plot twists. - Goodreads

In addition, the ending seemed to lack any oomph. - Goodreads

Review: Blaze of Glory (The Laws of Magic #1)

User Review  - Lisa Kizer - Goodreads

The last 100 pages were very contrite. As if the author was forcing a way to end the book without ending the story. Lots of convenient plot twists. Though I wonder why the main character Aubrey did not use the magic Law of Sympathy to locate his father? Not going the read the rest of the series. Read full review

Review: Blaze of Glory (The Laws of Magic #1)

User Review  - Bethany - Goodreads

An entertaining read that was much better than I thought it would be. Writing's not anything to special but it doesn't seriously detract from the story. A funny book. Read full review
