This week, on the Major Spoilers Podcast, your hosts take a look at The Occultist from Mike Richardson and Tim Seeley.


Rob Bailey must balance responsibilities as a boyfriend, as a college student, and as the new wielder of the Sword, an ancient book of spells that has binded itself to him. With a team of hit mages hired by a powerful sorcerer after him, it’s trial by fire for the new Occultist, as he learns to handle his powerful magical tome, or suffer at the hands of these deadly enemies. But as he fights for his life, our hero wonders whether he’s wielding this enigmatic weapon, or if it’s the one in control.

    “Binded itself to him???” Really??? Try “bound itself to him…” The premise sounds interesting, though I snickered at the idea of a magic book named “Sword”. Will he find a magic sword at some point named “Grimore”? I could have a lot of fun with a hero named “The Occultist” with running jokes about confused peopled coming to him for eye exams…
