    About "Michael G. Manning"

      • Michael G. Manning

        Michael Manning was born in Cleveland, Texas and spent his formative years there, reading fantasy and science fiction, concocting home grown experiments in his backyard, and generally avoiding schoolwork.Eventually he went to college, starting at Sam Houston State University, where his love of beer blossomed and his obsession with playing role playing games led him to what he calls his best year ever and what most of his family calls the lost year.Several years and a few crappy jobs later, he decided to pursue college again and was somehow accepted into the University of Houston Honors program we won t get into the particulars of that miracle This led to a degree in pharmacy and it followed from there that he wound up with a license to practice said profession.Unfortunately, Michael was not a very good pharmacist Being relatively lawless and free spirited were not particularly good traits to possess in a career focused on perfection, patient safety, and the letter of the law Nevertheless, he persisted and after a stint as a hospital pharmacy manager wound up as a pharmacist working in correctional managed care for the State of Texas.He gave drugs to prisoners.After a year or two at UTMB he became bored and taught himself entirely too much about networking, programming, and database design and administration At first his supervisors warned him repeatedly to do his assigned tasks and stop designing programs to help his coworkers do theirs, but eventually they gave up and just let him do whatever he liked since it seemed to be generally working out well for them.Ten or eleven years later and he got bored with that too So he wrote a book We won t talk about where he was when he wrote The Blacksmith s Son , but let s just assume he was probably supposed to be doing something else at the time.Some people liked the book and told other people Now they won t leave him alone.After another year or two, he decided to just give up and stop pretending to be a pharmacist programmer, much to the chagrin of his mother who had only ever wanted him to grow up to be a doctor and had finally become content with the fact that he had settled on pharmacy instead.Michael s wife supported his decision, even as she stubbornly refused to believe he would make any money at it It turned out later that she was just telling him this because she knew that nothing made Michael contrary than his never ending desire to prove her wrong Once he was able to prove said fact she promptly admitted her tricky ruse and he has since given up on trying to win.Today he lives at home with his stubborn wife, teenage twins, a giant moose poodle, two yorkies, a green cheeked conure, a massive prehistoric tortoise, and a head full of imaginary people There are also some fish, but he refuses to talk about them Sign Up for Email Updates

    1. The Archmage Unbound picks right up where book 2 left off and doesn't disappoint! I love the inner dialog Mort always has going on. The characters develop in a very honest, believable way that allows me to care about them deeply.I cannot recommend this series enough. It's not the "high style" of fantasy Tolkien etc. It's very much like Fiest with much more humor. Manning is able to "spin yarn" in a very very fun way.



    2. One of my favorite authors does it again I purchased this book and could not put it down finished it in about 6 hours if you like fantasy or just want to read a great series check it out


    3. I think the reason I like this series so much is because it is very close to my "dream series" - the story resonates with the ones I have often created in my head. Mordecai had gained his power and didn't foolishly bumble around with it, but dived right in. Unlike many coming-of-age fantasies, there are little to no restricting authorities, thus making Mort gain experience and wisdom at a much quicker pace while he led his friends and vassals. And as a huge bonus, Mort is not afraid to experimen [...]


    4. The Archmage Unbound picks up immediately after the events of The Line of Illeniel and doesn't let up until the end. What I absolutely love about Manning's characters is the fact that, even more than the in the first two books in the series, he's really managed to flesh them all out. There isn't any dead weight and every character feel real. There's humor, horror, love. There's honor, restrained lust, genuine rage. At one point one of the character's emotional reaction threatens to literally de [...]


    5. Manning never fails to amaze me. His books honestly just get better and better! I can't wait to lay my hands on #4 in this series :DAside from being brilliantly written, and descriptive, the plot is amazing and beyond any normal persons imagination capacity! The amount of thought that I suspect went into the inner workings of magic and the history and plot of the books in general is definitely up there with David Eddings himself. He even gave Eddings a run for his money on the sarcastic, dry, wi [...]


    6. Remember what happened in book 1? The scene where Penny got a vision and decided to do things herself? Okay, maybe nobody would've believed her, so she needed to mess things up. But after that time and the battle in book 2, I am pretty sure people will believe her and her visions. Anyways, in this book, Penny decides to try to do things again. Obviously, she "fails" and bad things happen. It seems that this is the author's only way of progressing the plot. I really don't get the whole point of t [...]


    7. I would have given it more but for one huge plot hole. The book's main plot is how Mort handle the kidnapping and apparent death of his wife and best friend but the whole thing could have been prevented if they went to Mort's house in the Capital instead of going to Lancaster to hide since the house in the Capital can only be accessed by Mort and friends and is heavily enchanted that no one can gain access inside unless invited in.


    8. What i really enjoy about this series is that it does not over complicate things.Their are not millions of characters and the story basically is about Mordecai the archmage,His wife Penelope, and his two best friends Marc and Dorien.The dialogue is witty and sarcastic in spots and rings true to life.Other authors may write similar novels but not many can get you to buy into the overall story and characters like Mr. Manning can.


    9. Got this as an ebook. It is an easy, fun read. The characters are interesting. Read the first and second in this series. They were really good. I would recommend this book to any one who likes fantasy.


    10. WowI feel this whole series has come so far, from the first good but slightly awkward book, to this masterpiece.I loved the twist at the end as well.I am so excited for the next book!!!!!


    11. this book did not disappoint :) after waiting a while i did get nervous that it wouldnt live up to first two but if anything it was even better awsome read


    12. I honestly couldn't put it down once it got to a certain point. A more-detailed review to post on my blog once I finish a rather impressive backlist of reviews.


    13. The dark and light gods at odds?Be be the dark and light gods both are after Mort. The King is using subterfuge to gain control. Unexpected allies emerge. Baby surprise?


    14. This is a wonderful series of book, for an older reader. Some crude references push the reader age up, but it is very well written with some fun twists.


    15. AnotherAnother excellent book in the Mageborn series. The characters are growing and learning and it's fun to learn about their world along with them. On to the next one!


    16. So pleased to have continued with the series despite some of the issues I had with the writing of the first one. Michael G Manning really hit his stride with the third installment of the Mageborn series. He could also have gotten a new editor, who knows? But whatever it was - it was just what he needed. The plot and character development was awesome. In the Blacksmith's Son - the characters were a little two-dimensional and predictable. MGM started showing us there really was depth in his charac [...]


    17. I like the first person perspective, especially from a quirky, cheeky character. The book loses me a little in the plot. The first two books had well structured plots that felt quite smooth and natural. This one feels a little tacked together. It's still an excellent book and the plot works well with the world, it just doesn't flow well with the trilogy.The characters are well written, I'm glad to see some of the secondary characters getting more depth this time around even if one or two of them [...]


    18. This was the best book of the series so far. The characters have gotten more mature in how they interact. The situations have gotten more complex. And the world building and magic system have become more original and specific. Mordecai finally learns what it really means to be an archmage and it's much better than just a stronger than normal mage. It's a whole new magic type, with new options and new limitations. And his relationships and plot choices are more complex than "save the girl" and "s [...]


    19. I enjoyed this more than the second, some of the fun was back in the world, and though things were more dangerous and deadly for our hero there was also a lightening of things, after the great battle ending book 2.The power behind the king is very nicely done, although one does wonder at the convenience of mysterious wizards surviving as well as Mort. I suppose they spice things up considerably and "our" wizard still leads the pack on balls. And stupidityI still like Manning's pricing structure [...]


    20. Already rated this book on my 1st read. I won't change it. I love the story, the characters, the (sometimes impossible) magic (but this is fantasy, right ?), the twists, the sarcasms, the sense of humour and of course, the way the story unfolds and the way it is toldThe amount of things I have missed on my 1st read is incredible though. I truly needed to get over the 1st three books. Now that I am done, I am eager to discover what Mordecai & Co will face.Unpleasant things surely. Well, only [...]


    21. As with the first two, this book had me trying to read as fast as I could to get to the next page to see what was next! I like that the characters and plot are still evolving from book one, but they are still remaining fairly true to the characters we met in the beginning. I didn't want to put it down. I'm not claiming that it's the best book I've every read, but it is very good. I have very much enjoyed this series. I'm anxious to see how far they will goWell worth the time to read highly recom [...]


    22. This was the best of the three books. There were some good ideas in the three books involving characters and the plot but the writing style was riddled with many cliches and at times even the dialogue left much to be desired. The battle at the climax seems a bit contrived at some instances as well, yet the reader is left feeling a bit satisfied at how the book ends. All in all a good experience. I'll be waiting for Book #4.


    23. The Mageborn Series Grows in Number and QualityEach book carries our Mage forward in a carefully crafted plot that resolves in the individual novel while moving him forward in the Mageborn world. As Mordecai increases his knowledge, abilities and wisdom, so the author has also increased the scope and depth of his storyline and character development. An overall exciting and enjoyable read, with many clever elements.


    24. I liked it! The usual tension was there with the separations of the characters. The characters and environment have developed well and I thought it was good that some of them underwent some severe situations. I am eagerly waiting to see how Dorian will handle his captivity. It could go so right and so wrong Moira makes so much more sense now and I like where things are going, Penny and Mordecai did right with her


    25. I could not put these books down. I love Mort's character, i love his blundering interactions with his friends and I absolutely love the writing style. The ebb and flow of the storyline kept me hooked from chapter 1 of book 1. To my delight upon finishing the third book I discovered that there is a forth book. I feel like I have stumbled upon some prize and will treasure every page.


    26. GREAT STORY, PLAIN PROSEAs i read the book, i grew accustomed to its seemingly pedestrian prose.Through all the plain description and words, the story manages to keep me interested.The word 'tissue' in an epic fantasy such as this almost takes me out of it.Nonetheless, i persevere and its worth it to know the fate of the characters.All in all, decent showing.


    27. WonderfulReally enjoying this series. Coming to grips with the fact that I basically interchange four and five stars for my ratings when I love a book. I like how the epilogue is something interesting and not just skimming fodder in each book. Looking forward to seeing what happens next


    28. They have lost so muchThis has been a great storyline and one of the best read from author that I'm now following. The ups and downs and the things in between you can't put it down till the end.


    29. I have been a fan of fantasy books for a long time. And it's been a long time since I grabbed a book and had trouble putting it down. This is one of the best books I've read in a while and I have high hopes for the rest of the series.
