I only read when my OCD kicks in

I enjoy reading, however, the bulk of reading only occurs while I am in an OCD focus zone. Last year I read over 70 books but I didn't pick up a book from August 2013 until March 25, 2014... I have already read 3 books this year!

The Blacksmith's Son (Mageborn, #1)

The Blacksmith's Son (Mageborn, #1) - Michael G. Manning I want to be fair. This is a good first book. The plot is good although quite predictable. I would consider this a good pen wetting ceremony. The action doesn't flow very well and there are many holes as to take away from the value.
Mordeci discovers that he is a mage of rare abilities. In discovering that he is a mage he makes several new friends and enemies along the way.
Not a series that I think I will continue reading in but it will be interesting to see what success Michael Manning finds along the way.
