    "Mage's Burden (Fire of the Jidaan) is a decent science fiction book from the series that's a great narrative overall. While it's very much fictional, the dialogue makes you believe that it could be real, in a different place."

    "One of the best opening books I've read hands down. I read this shortly before it hit TV and it really dives a lot deeper than the show ever covers. You can get a lot of side and full world lore out of this."
