Crimes Against Magic by Steve McHugh

The Indie Book of the Day for 2nd July 2012!

Genre: Fantasy, Science Fiction

It’s been almost ten years since Nathan Garrett woke on a cold warehouse floor with nothing but a gun, a sword, and no idea of who he was or how he got there. His only clue … a piece of paper with his name on it. Since then, he’s discovered he’s a powerful sorcerer and has used his abilities to work as a thief for hire. But he’s never stopped hunting for his true identity, and those who erased his memory have never stopped hunting for him. When the barrier holding his past captive begins to crumble, Nathan swears to protect a young girl who is key to his enemy’s plans. But with his enemies closing in, and everyone he cares about becoming a target for their wrath, Nathan is forced to choose between the life he’s built for himself and the one buried deep inside him.

Crimes Against Magic is an Urban Fantasy set in modern day London with Historical flashbacks to early fifteenth century France. It’s book one of the Hellequin Chronicles, a series about Nathan (Nate) Garrett, a centuries old sorcerer.

IBD Verdict

Meet Nathan, he is the equivalent of ‘Merlin meets James Bond’ in present day London. Steve McHugh’s Robin Hood is on an action packed, magical crusade against those that dared ruin his life. Nathan is a people’s character and the story itself is full of surprises. Steve McHugh had made a promising debut with Crimes Against Magic.

Read Sample

Steve’s been writing from an early age, his first completed story was done in an English lesson. Unfortunately, after the teacher read it, he had to have a chat with the head of the year about the violent content and bad language. The follow up ‘One boy and his frog’ was less concerning to his teachers and got him an A.

It wasn’t for another decade that he would start work on a full length novel, the result of which; Crimes Against Magic is now available from Amazon.

He was born in a small village called Mexbrough, South Yorkshire, but now lives with his wife and two young daughters in Southampton.
