The Review
Daasek has come to the port of Ta’bel for the purpose of killing someone. Daasek is not sure who exactly that it is that he will kill. He knows only that he must kill someone. He has been on the road many days. And Daasek has been to many such little villages and has killed. Before long someone has died and Daasek may well be blamed for this murder he did not commit. Krujj a magician controls everyone in Ta’bel. It was Krujj who controlled the death of the one who died as Daasek watch. Krujj may control those who live in Ta’bel, he does not control Daasek.

Daasek will learn during his quest that the ones he kills are part of The Thirteen. Zorell the Pasheur of Avania controls metal, Krujj cloth, Roaine is a healer, and Ensten controls the shape of living things. Nyxx the mage of Horea wants The Thirteen dead and it is Nyxx who controls Daasek.

Writer Welch has crafted a fast paced, absorbing fantasy set in a harsh land filled with savageness, inexorable inhabitants and near hopeless situations. At times Welch’s characters and situations are very out of the ordinary. This does not at all distract from the work. This is not the first of this writers works that I have read and enjoyed for review. The Thirteenth Magician gives the reader a peek into evil presented as the norm. Writer Welch presents an epic fantasy filled with gritty dialogue, tumult and lots of conniving. The reader is not given a clear reason why Daasek a guild fisherman/slave assassin of Nyxx must kill the magicians. We know only that he must and follow him on his quest. The Thirteenth Magician is not the usual little formula novel. Rather it is a perfect read for a cold stormy afternoon as the reader sits before a roaring fire sipping something hot and soothing. A large cat sitting nearby, ears at the ready, eyes aglow with hidden secrets will only add to the enjoyment of the moment.

Excellent read.
