Merchants of Maji

I was approached by the author of this book after he saw I had reviewed a Brandon Sanderson book. He thought that I would like his book due to the similarities in genre so he took the chance by offering me a copy to review for him. I am glad he did.

This book was very enjoyable to read. It has a steampunk sci-fi feel to it so anyone who liked the Firefly/Serenity series/movie and/or liked Brandon Sanderson’s books on the Allow of Law will most likely greatly enjoy this book.

It is not a long read, which is the only reason I rate this one as a four rather than a five star. The book is broken up into two parts of a story. The first part follows one set of individuals which makes me think of a Firefly episode, while the second part then goes into a few years after the first and the problems which are still arising from certain events. While this is fine for the most part, I feel a little cheated about learning and meeting these characters in the first section and then never finding out what exactly did happen to them. In the second section I did not even realize years had passed until half to 3/4th of the way through it when the original incident was even mentioned.

I truly hope the author comes out with another book from this world and makes it a bit longer with sticking with all the same characters, but besides that it was a very enjoyable read. Thank you Mr. Tracy for allowing me the opportunity to read and review your book.
