Born To Magic, Tales of Nevaeh (1) by David Wind

The story takes place in Nevaeh, America is gone by war many, many years before. The women there have super strength and psychic abilities. One woman Areena, the daughter of King Freemorn is the future Queen.

She learns that the fate of the world is in danger and it is up to her to save it. Along with Mikaal, the son of Nevaeh's King they set off to fight to save humanity. They face many dangers along the way and secrets are revealed. Will Areena be saved from the darkness? Will their quest be a success?

A very original story, very detailed and well written. Each character has their own qualities, some are likable while others are not. There is suspense, adventure and magic. All the qualities of a great fantasy.

I stepped back into my fantasy genre reading mode to read Born to Magic: Tales of Nevaeh Volume 1 and am I glad I did! Great tale and one I thoroughly enjoyed.

Synopsis (from the author): Long ago, the violence and radiation of terrorist wars killed America. Descendants of the survivors now dwell in a world of ritual and magic, where ten dominions struggle for supremacy and a dark, formidable power has emerged.

Areenna, the only daughter of the King of Freemorn, is barely eighteen, yet her psychic ability is strong. She is called to The Island and learns that the fate of her world is in her hands. She must undertake a perilous journey to save Nevaeh from malicious destruction. But she will not travel alone.

Mikaal, the son of the High King of Nevaeh, has just as much at stake as Areenna. The quest takes them through haunted wastelands filled with mutants while a vile and evil force will do everything in its power to stop them—for it wants Nevaeh as its own.

What I liked: I thought the premise of the book was great. The idea of a space traveler returning to earth to find a society without technology, and where the women wield magic was so cool to me. Add to it the intrigue of the evil influences in the world trying to conquer the world, the hint of romance that flows throughout the book, and the action sequences, and you have a great read. I also liked the way words had evolved in the story. For instance, instead of rabbits, there were rabts. Interesting way to make familiar things new!

What I didn’t like: I thought I little more background on the evil force would have been nice, but it certainly didn’t detract from the story. Other than that, no complaints from me!

Overall impression: Born to Magic held my attention from the beginning. A nice blend of action, fantasy, intrigue, and a hint of romance made this a great read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to read fantasy!

My rating: 5 Stars

What a adventure that was. This book has so much going on in it, that you are never board. It has everything some one could look for. While the story Princess Areenna and Prince Mikaal was very interesting as they set out in there journey to save their magical world. The book was some times hard to keep up with but I got it done. Thank you David for this wonderful adventure that you put me on. Can't wait to read the next book

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a story about good and evil – evil so extreme that it is ... Feb. 16 2015
By Teresa E Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
“Born to Magic”, the first book of the “Trilogy, “Tales of Navaeh” is a Science Fiction novel for our time that reflects what is happening in our world today. The book begins millenniums from now. Most of the Earth as we know it has been destroyed. David Wind brings us into another time. Magic is a very developed science in this new world. The Earth as we know it, due to the catastrophe that occurred millenniums before, and by radiation, many humans and animals have become mutants.

This is a story about good and evil – evil so extreme that it is beyond our own imaginations, but David has a way of painting that dark side so that even we can fathom what that is. The dark side is determined to overtake Navaeh, the last holdout of the good in our world.

The author brings the characters to life – Princess Areenna and Prince Mikaal, the chosen that must take it upon themselves to face the demons, the absolute terror, to save Navaeh. The brave people of this land led by the High King and Queen, will do anything in their power, and “power” in this future place is a combination of highly developed magic born of the women of Navaeh and the absolute bravery and highly skilled men (and women) of this beautiful land. Many pull together what is needed to keep the evil dark side from taking over. Failure would mean the entire world would be filled with only true horror. There is no losing this war.

There are surprises around every corner, page by page, in this fast paced plot. I didn’t know what to expect next and simply could not put the book down. David Wind can paint a picture with words as I’ve never read them before and I was held captive throughout the entire book.

3.0 out of 5 stars No Tension June 6 2015
By E. L. Sapp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The story is very enjoyable. I like the way the author built the world, and how humanity progresses (or not) after a nuclear attack. The characters were not very well developed, though there was a little bit. (I would have liked more on how Solomon Roth adapted to the new world.)

My major complaint is how every problem seems to be solvable with a powerful blast of magic. No matter what enemy attacks, a strong blast destroys it. (There are a few exceptions - like the use of invisibility once - but this is true for the most part.) For this reason, I never really felt like the main characters were ever in real danger. Sure, the author may say they are, and the characters think they are, but in the end, they just blast it and it's done.

The book is worth reading because, as I said, the story is good. But without emotional depth, this is more of a rental/borrow than a must-buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Depth adds to appeal April 8 2015
By Amazonianz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Terrific – I’ve found an Author who is intelligent, confident in his prose, and tells a great story!
I like the concept of Nevaeh, and women will find this is more gender affirmative than so many novels written by men. I expect it will be enjoyed by many who don’t usually choose to read books in the science-fiction/fantasy genre. Not only is it an entertaining story, but there’s a depth in the underlying philosophy that adds to the appeal.
This is the first David Wind novel I’ve read – the first of many, I hope. I’ll certainly be reading the follow-ups to this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Read April 17 2017
By Carrie Bourlier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A much different take of a post apocalyptic future. I enjoyed the story itself. Strong characters, especially female characters who don't always need rescued, are a big hit in my mind. It is odd to find a male author who writes a strong female so well.
If you are looking for a post apocalypse, with medieval undertones and magic, well this is it.
The one thing that drove me absolutely batty was the authors penchant to turning words backwards. The main area is called Neveah (heaven), capital city is Tolemac (camelot) and many of the names such as Enaid (Diane), Atir (rita), Nosaj (Jason), Laira, (Arial), and so on. Hard to pronounce names are bad enough, but once I caught on to the backwards trend, I was constantly stumbling in my reading and the story flow would be interupted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read-David Wind creates an amazing new world Feb. 15 2015
By Jeff Gunhus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
David Wind's Born to Magic showcases a master storyteller's ability to create a world and breathe life into it with compelling complex characters. He's written an epic fantasy built around an original mythology and shows he knows how to paint a visual spectacle with amazing action sequences and memorable set pieces. Most importantly, Born to Magic is about something greater than a quest, not only exploring the nature of men and women and their reliance on one another, but examining the very foundation of society and the paths of both ruin and hope available to humanity.
