Description - Laws Of Magic 1 by Michael Pryor

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

Book Review: Laws Of Magic 1 by Michael Pryor - Reviewed by (16 Jun 2011)

Blaze of Glory is the first book in The Laws of Magic series by Michael Pryor. Set in a parallel world during the time of the First World War, the story revolves around Aubrey Fitzwilliam, son of the Prime Minister of Albion. Aubrey has a great friend, George Doyle, a good man in a tight situation: a place in which George would rather not be, but where Aubrey's shenanigan's and schemes often take them. Into the picture comes Caroline Hepworth. Beautiful, funny, and way smarter than either of the boys, Aubrey falls crashingly and immediately in love with her, to his total chagrin. In the world of this story, magic is a tool that is used to better the world. Aubrey is an adept, and is training at university to become even more skilful. But in his inimitable way, Aubrey takes things too far, and disaster ensues. This is a ripping yarn, tightly written and amusing. Highly recommended.
