The engaging story makes the reader wonder. What if our ancient monuments were resurrected, what would the outcome be? And what would happen if a modern day man could meet a beautiful woman from a previous time period? This, and many other questions are answered, some with a political/environmental slant.
Certain lines in the novella made me wish we could be the ones wielding an other worldly Science Fiction power over our Politicians! Now, wouldn’t that be great!
I believe this is book one and there is more to come. #highlyrecommended #reading.

This book is an engaging read that left me wanting more. It challenges our accepted beliefs about ancient monuments and civilisations and the author’s imagination carries us into ‘what if’ scenarios and pins them into current situations.
We are living in times where political systems are shuddering at their foundations and ‘The Magisters’ gifts us a different way of looking at things.
Yes, please to Book Two.

With Jack’s usual flair he blurs the line where his imagination takes over from the history we have been taught, leading us into what might happen next and why. He addresses important issues in this fast-moving story, the end of which suggests that book two will be forthcoming.

This is a quick and highly entertaining read about a few selected people from throughout history (Magisters) who are chosen by an ancient extra terrestrial to help him maintain certain historical monuments. The alien comes from an advanced race on another planet who have damaged their own home environment and the historical monuments guarded by the Magisters have a historical usage by this alien race that is very different from what modern man believes.
When a new comer, who has the power to restore these ancient monuments to their formal glory through his focused thoughts, finally joins the Magisters it enables their leader to re-establish his communication with his compatriots on his home planet. Using the Magisters collective powers, the leader is able to repair his space ships and travel back to his home planet as well as travelling around the earth world.
There is a bit of a romance slipped in which complements the main story nicely and makes two of the main Magister characters more human and believable.
Naturally, the scientists and politicians on earth notice the dramatic restoration of the seven historical monuments and question how this has occurred. How the leader and the Magisters deal with this curiosity and also with humanities determination to damage their planet home can be discovered by reading this fascinating novella.

Jack Eason wreiters abotu a group of people with highest spiritual intelligence and a unique sense of justice. The Magisters are magically talented people; their founder and leader, ‘Utu’ has grouped to open the scientists and politicians their eyes about the status of the Earth.
James, a man of unique gift, is one of the youngest members of the Magisters. He meets Alina, who he falls in love with almost instantly.
Jack Eason masterfully combines Science fiction with Magic, old with new, antique with fashionable and war with politics.
The result is a thrilling first part of what hopefull becomes a series.
When reading a book, I normall pick my favorite character(s). In this book it’s Alina. Her mild nature in combination with her huge knowledge of the old times and her natural behavior around her secrets, make her a wonderfully warm character with an exciting maternal instinct.
Utu and James are nice enough, wise and skillful, but also they both hold an arrogance I cannot get 100% warm to. I understand that’s the way these characters are created and nothing is further from me to critisize the author’s ability to develop his characters. He does a great job. Nevertheless both, Utu and James are carrying characters and enormously important for the story.
And then there is Gwendolen – but read for yourself!

With a slight political slant, it makes for interesting fictional commentary on the world as we know it. Really interesting read, and I can’t wait for more!
