Philip Blood is a published author, computer artist, game producer and game designer currently living in the Los Angeles suburbs. He is an avid scuba diver, a voracious reader of sci-fi and fantasy, a tabletop gamer from way back and a computer game junkie with MMOs being the top of his list.
Mr. Blood is currently working on a new fantasy series, called The Archimage Wars. Book 1: the Wizard of Abal, Book 2: Sorceress of Atlantis, Book 3: Demon of Annwn, Book 4: Seeress of Yaochi, and Book 5: Necromancer of Irkalla are already available to read. In addition, he is also working on another new Fantasy series based off of an MMORPG he designed, called Citadel of Sorcery. The novels in this series will tell the backstory of the world, and let the reader continue the story of the novels by starting the game. Look for Book 1: Fool's Star, in the Citadel of Sorcery series, soon.

I finished the book (late) last night. Good page turner. I loved the author's Nexlord series and had to see if this was as good. This one starts a little faster, with a lot of people, but the story flows nicely, and I love the characters. The magic system is unique, and well thought out. There is some good humor as well. I am finding this world to be quite interesting, and can't wait to see where the adventure goes in the next book. The cathexis metal, for which the series is obviously named, is also interesting. I highly recommend this read.
