Synopsis

Wuntvor and Crew are still making their way towards the City of Delights, his master is still sneezing up a storm, the Netherhells are still being all evil’y and everything that can go wrong is sure to go wrong.

 

My Thoughts

I was hoping this would be a bit funnier than the previous book, but sadly, the humor was exactly the same, so it didn’t work for me.

The ideas sound great, but Gardner’s brand of humor just doesn’t amuse me. While the ending of this book has a huge cliffhanger, I don’t think I actually care enough to read the third one.

If you liked the first book, then I can’t see why you wouldn’t like this one.

A Malady of Magicks (Ebenezum #1)

A young apprentice to a powerful wizard must help the wizard get through all sorts of adventures while the wizard is under the weather of an allergy to magic.

My Thoughts

This book was trying to be funny. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn’t. Sadly, in this case, it meandered from one to the other. Some of the mini-adventures were funny, some were kind of meh, and some were just downright stupid.

The constant jumping from one place/adventure to another without any warning was weird as well. However, the Apprentices constantly falling in love with whoever the lady of the adventure was was pretty funny.

The apprentice felt like he was the narrator and his character was tacked into the story. It might have worked better to have an omniscient narrator and have the apprentice be more of an actual character.

I’ll be reading the next 2 in the series however.
