  1. Six decades after magic overthrew technology.

Courier-wizard Donal Cuthbert barely lands on the red dirt of Mars before people try to kill him. Rival corporations, willing to kill over his delivery. Donal escapes a spaceport explosion and plunges into a world of corporate espionage where even his beautiful liaison might be a deadly enemy.

Helioship captain John Jacobs teeters on the brink of financial ruin. Only an odd Mars-Earth business charter can save him. But murders on the ship drag Jacobs into the web of conspiracies alongside Donal.

And something worse than killers stalks that ship…

Magician’s Choice, a tale of adventure and espionage in high space, with dueling wizards and magic-driven ships. The first novel in the Rise of Magic series from Stefon Mears, author of The Telepath Trilogy.
