Summary
There's plenty packed into Secrets of Magic to make it a near must have for Pathfinder groups. This is one of those books where your Game Master should have a copy. Gamers should really dig the two new classes, loads of archetypes and backgrounds, 200+ spells, and options for fresh mechanics to change how magic works in your game world. I admit the artwork is the most uneven that I've seen in a 2E release and the Ultimate Book of Magic will go unused by many people but this is still an excellent addition to the Pathfinder system.
