    One thought on “The Nullification Engine”

    1. This is the second book the Alchemancer series, following on from ‘The Five Elements’. Like that one, this starts with a bang, literally, a mysterious underground explosion in the city of Brighton, just as our heroes from the first book, Aaron, Serena and Ensel Rhe, arrive there, followed almost immediately by demon houndmaster Krosus and his evil pack. In dealing with the hounds, Aaron and Serena manage to get themselves arrested and tossed into the dungeon. It has to be said, the author kn [...]

    2. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This is the second book of The Alchemancer series by Scott Marlowe and it does an excellent job of building on the first book. Like the first book, this is a nice mix of epic fantasy and steampunk. It's primarily the story of two sorcerers' apprentices, Aaron and Serena and their companion Ensel Rhe. Of course, only one of the apprentices can actually do magic. Aaron's talents lie in the science and alchemy fields, which is for [...]

    3. This turned out to be one of my favourite surprises of the year. I wasn't surprised that it was good, I expected that after reading the first book. I was surprised and pleased that the author managed to continue on from the first book and yet make this one so different from the first. There is still the steampunkish (not a word but oh well) feel to this, in fact a bit more so than in the first, but the plot was entirely different and there were lots of unexpected events and even some "Wow!" mome [...]

    4. I read Scott Marlowe’s The Nullification Engine over the weekend and found it to be as enjoyable as the first book in the series, The Five Elements. Most of the characters return in the latest book, some in more minor roles than previously. Aaron is still the hero and still modest and hard-working. Again, he almost saves the day (not really a spoiler, as this is not the last book in the series). Marlowe continues to write strong female characters, which I find refreshing in sword-and-sorcery f [...]

    5. The second installment in Mr. Marlowe's sci-Fi fantasy series did not disappoint. The same captivating style of writing as used in the first novel, The Five Elements, drags you in from page one and doesn't let go. We are reintroduced to Aaron and Serena from book one, as well as a couple other characters that we became familiar with. They have barely reached their destination city following on the heels of battles fought and won in the first story only to be folded into a new and terrifying even [...]

    6. The Nullification Engine is the second book of the Alchemancer Series. We catch up with Aaron after the final events of book one. A few of the side plots take a larger part of the story. I enjoyed learning more about the five elements and what the originators were trying to ultimately achieve. New characters are introduced, and at times it becomes a little hard to keep track of them all. There is still a nice blend of magic and technology. We meet new enemies and friends, as Aaron works on the e [...]

    7. Nachdem ich den Vorgänger The Five Elements mit Freuden gelesen habe, ging es direkt mit The Nullification Engine weiter.Wieder einmal besticht The Nullification Engine durch eine Mischung aus Magie, Wissenschaft und Steampunk. Während im Erstling noch Magie eine große Rolle spielte, hat sich das Gewicht umverteilt. Zu Beginn wirkte der nicht vorhandene Fokus noch erfrischend, im Verlauf der Geschichte findet man auch keinen Fokus mehr, was mir nicht mehr so sehr gefiel. Störend empfand ich [...]
