The Archmage Unbound (Mageborn, #3)
Michael G. Manning

Alternate cover edition of ASIN B00843Y4DY

Mordecai’s growing power and success have made him a threat, not just to the gods and their minions, but also to the king of Lothion. An unholy bargain has been struck to bring him to heel and increasingly it seems that victory may not be worth the price, not if the cost is measured in the blood of his family. Wizard, lord, husband, father, and now archmage… no man can balance so many roles without sacrificing something. Will the world be worth saving if it costs him the very reasons he has for living in it?

I enjoyed this more than the second, some of the fun was back in the world, and though things were more dangerous and deadly for our hero there was also a lightening of things, after the great battle ending book 2.

The power behind the king is very nicely done, although one does wonder at the convenience of mysterious wizards surviving as well as Mort. I suppose they spice things up considerably and “our” wizard still leads the pack on balls. And stupidity…

I still like Manning’s pricing structure and now I know there are more coming I’m waiting willingly for the next!
