This is a review of the whole series: This book tells the story of another world's Merlin or Gandalf. Brighton starts out as a young man who falls in love with a girl. Her father is a powerful wizard that manipulates energy in a negative way and Brighton learns to manipulate energy in a positive way to combat him. In the 2nd book Brighton has to deal with the tempation of his power and in the 3rd book, Brighton finds out who his father is and has to deal with the repercussions of that. This is as much a story about relationships as it is a fantasy novel and the author does a very good job of keeping the stories moving. Readers who love having animals in their stories will love meeting Mischief as well.
The only negative is that Brighton is basically Superman and his kryptonite is his love. He's too powerful and good to be related to as a human and so that part of the story is lame, but made up for by the rest. Good series.
