"A fabulous tale incorporating Magic, Martial arts and Eastern Philosophy. I loved it! Tom Meseroll has managed to meld the many forms and philosophies of magic into a marvelous tale of good and evil."
"Tom Meseroll’s novel is thought provoking...Blending of three interests, i.e. science, magic and martial arts weaving a very interesting story with complex, thought provoking ideas. His image of such a magician creates the character in our minds; perhaps one we'd imagine ourselves to be...certainly the superhero aspect. I mean, who hasn't fantasized being Superman, or someone with superpowers saving the world. Perhaps even becoming a magician is part of that wondrous fantasy of ours. At any rate we are literally pulled into the story, wondering what will come next and what will happen...hungry for answers.”
I found "Magus, Master of Martial Magic" to be inspirational, fun and (one more time) "thought provoking".....a great read!”
"Like the discipline of the Martial Arts, Magus is about surrender to the Path or the Way in one's own life. Magus embraces the wonder and surprise that is life through the transfomational journey of Nicholas Thompson. It is all about reclaiming and discovering one's greatness. Tom Meseroll brilliantly narrates and collapses the worlds of physics, magic and martial arts into one coherent story. Ultimately, Tom's Magus is an allegory of mastery in life. Perhaps, true magic is about discovering one's own power, and enrolling others in their own inherent greatness. The power of the universe begins with being at one with it. The Magus expolres these possibilities in an engaging, and entertaining tale of wonder and adventure!"
