About Featured Book: Misfit Mage (Fledgling God Book 1) by Michael Taggart
He went searching for a fresh start. He didn't expect to find unusual friends, fierce enemies, and primal powers.
Jason thought that it was the end of his life after being hunted and attacked by a band of ruthless thugs. Instead, he tapped into the source of creation and emerged from his Death Experience with magical powers.
As a new mage, Jason finds himself part of a wonderful – and dangerous – new supernatural world. He also finds himself in the middle of a mage war as he becomes part of an unlikely group of protectors who are defending a mystical mansion from those who want to destroy it.
Jason has little power, and the band of misfits are on the losing side, until he discovers he can see and manipulate magic at a remarkable level. What he detects begins his journey into discovering how his new powers really work, and just might be the edge that they need to survive.

Such a fun, easy read that just grabs you and sucks you in for the most amazing, humorous, thrilling and, yes, magical ride. Loved the pace, the characters, and the spin on magic. – RichKoNYC
This book gave me so much more than I could have anticipated. The magic usage is creative. The characters are distinct. It manages to be a beautiful wrapping of intensity and comedy that keeps the reader utterly engaged. – vulcanivy
Chapter 1 – Run for Your Life
Sprinting while naked is not an easy thing. I've seen streakers before, and while I've admired their desire for mischief, I've never thought of it as a painful undertaking.
I was running for my life down the hall, and despite the motivation to maintain top speed, Captain Winky and his two first mates were voicing a loud, painful protest of their mistreatment.
The human body is a wonderful thing, and normally it would have responded to a fight-or-flight situation by compacting all members. A tight package makes for minimal jostling, and I think I could have even enjoyed the feeling of air flowing over my nether regions. However, I had been interrupted in the middle of some fine nookie, and nothing about my rather upbeat member was compacted.
Two men in black suits pounded down the hotel hallway behind me. They were built like ass-kickers, and as such they would surely give me a hurtin' if they caught me. However, I'm lean and nimble and I was able to put some distance between us.
I wasn't sure why they were after me–neither one was acting like a jilted lover. But right now, getting away seemed like a good use of my mental powers. I'd leave figuring out 'why' for later.
It's hard to create an escape plan when you're starting from, "Oh baby, that feels good!" but I had the beginnings of one. I figured I'd get to the stairway and either take it to the bottom floor and out an emergency exit, or maybe duck onto one of the other floors and hide. It wasn't much of a plan, but a chase is fluid and quick. Hopefully it would be enough.
