Publishers Weekly says, "Bastille’s debut artfully combines magic, technology, and romance when a witch and a bioengineered actor fall in love despite a centuries-long conflict between their homelands."

Kirkus Reviews calls MagicLand “A bracing dystopian tale that deftly mixes magic, evolution, and romance. In this promising first novel, Charles Bastille introduces a world that features a surprisingly well-balanced mishmash of genres with robust elements of SF, fantasy, and romance all wrapped up in a post-apocalyptic package."

According to BookTrib, the "unique storytelling" and "the plot and tropes in the novel are intricate and layered... the basic themes are immediately recognizable. Characters in MagicLand are working through the issues inherent in our own world: technology and science versus spirituality, racial relations and shared ancestry, the concepts of power and love and ultimately good versus evil."

MagicLand is a love story set more than 2,000 years in the future when humanity has split into two separate species: the magicians of MagicLand and the augmented, cybernetic beings from Gath. The two species have been at war for 2,000 years. But then a young actor from Gath crash lands in MagicLand and encounters the beautiful young magician Aurilena.

Together, the two discover a terrible secret that lies at the heart of the centuries old conflict between their two species. It’s a secret that leads to a kiss that could end the war once and for all. The only question is will it end in brutal violence or give way to an improbable peace between implacable enemies? The answer to that question may depend on whether Aurilena can discover the true source of power behind her unique gifts before it’s too late.

The story behind MagicLand is never-ending. Search the internet for "The MagicLand Chronicles" to find an ongoing series of stories related to the 2,000+ year MagicLand timeline featuring characters and plots that do not appear in the main novel.
