Book review: D-Nine by Magus Tor

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I've never done a book review on this blog before, but I saw D-Nine by Magus Tor available for review on and I was intrigued. Read the description of this book, and I think my regular readers will see why.

"James is suffering from bouts of headache and the latest one gives him an experience of a life-time. He gets to become a girl but it comes with a price, his or rather her life is in constant danger as assassins hunt after her. He needs to find out who is behind this before his and her life becomes forfeited. In the midst of adventure he also needs to face with another difficult situation, love from another guy. Will he survive the conspiracy or death is a welcome solution to his forbidden love."

 Before I begin my review, here's a little bit of background information about the author:

"A doctor by day and game designer (and writer) by night, Magus Tor hopes to be able to turn the tables and become a game designer by day and doctor by night! He has published three books despite English being his not-so-favourite subject at school."

 I was provided with a Kindle e-book version of this book for review. I found it a little bit difficult to get into at first, just because it's always a transition getting used to a new author's writing style. Once I adapted myself to the author's style, I quickly began to enjoy this book. The first half of the book I found quite amusing. I was surprised to draw so much humor from this book, I wasn't expecting that. After the initial hurdle I found myself drawn into the author's world, and I had a difficult time putting the book down. As a chronic headache sufferer, obviously I could relate to the main character and his pain. As a woman, I found many of the situations in this story quite amusing.

I'm not going to spoil the ending, but I found the idea behind this story's ending unique and very interesting. I did enjoy that part of it. However, I felt the story was too short, and ended too quickly. It left me wanting more (*hint hint*) I would consider purchasing other stories by this author in the future.

I do want to note that it is apparent English is the author's second language, and that his occupation is as a medical doctor. There were just a few words which were in the wrong sequence, that kind of thing. Also, the use of medical terminology in this story might be a bit confusing to some, although it is limited. Otherwise, I was rather surprised when I read about him doing so poorly in English at school. I felt it was well written. A good read.

My thanks to and Magus Tor for providing me with the book for review.
