Dragon-wizard dude goes to the middle east, and inexplicably is an accomplished magician. Lots of eye-rolling and complete and utter dis-belief went on on my part as the reader, but I still had a thoroughly enjoyable time.

Maybe because Carolinus wasn’t along?

I liked this the most of the Dragon stories so far. The beginning was a little weird, but I rather enjoyed the whole story and Jim pretty much stopped whining.
And we got to see some of Jim and Angie together, which was nice as Angie has pretty much been a stage prop in the storyline so far.

James the Magic Dragon, [insert the rest of the stupid Puff the Magic dragon song here].

things are starting to go stale for me. James and Co have to go battle the forces of evil, yet again, without real aid from his Wizard Mentor and save the day with Brit cunning and 21st century know-how.
And the humor was gone. The first book was funny. Nothing here was funny. And the constant worrying about drinking wine all the time is getting old. Deal with it.

It was still a cool story, with practically invincible invisible enemies, and another worm to fight.

While I thought Jim had grown a pair by the end of the previous book, this book gives lie to that idea.

Jim is the wussiest over 6ft person imaginable[and he is not a stringbean]. He is athletic, smart and he HAS MAGIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And I still have to hear him be concerned because someone calls him Lord James instead of plain ol’ Jim.

Fun story, just not as good as it could have been with a hero who had a backbone.

I actually read a scanned copy on my ereader.

This reminded me, a lot, of the Guardians of the Flame series by Joel Rosenburg. But this was SO much better.
We only have to deal with 1 coward/douchebag and by the end he’s not a douchebag anymore, just a dummie.[unlike the Guardian series, where there is a group and they are still pretty much complete jerks even after several books]
This was a nice fun read that went quickly and gave me an hours enjoyment. I have high hopes that the rest of the series will be as fun.
