Synopsis

Gerald, from another dimension, makes a different choice from “our” Gerald back in Book 1, which turns him evil and sets him on the path of world and dimension domination.

 

My Thoughts

I didn’t like this book.  The girls, and I use that word instead of “women”, act like the worst type of stereotypical girls with their whining, talking, criticizing and general all around wasting of time and energy instead of either doing something or supporting those who are trying to do something.

The 2 guys aren’t much better. A tortured, self doubting genius and a tortured, self doubting wizard of incalculable strength. Yeah. I was that angsty, emotional and doubtful once too, when I was 19.

There is one more book in this series, but I won’t be reading it, nor will I be reading any more by Mills.

My Thoughts

I was really enjoying this book. One liners were abounding in every chapter. There was a great mix of humor, adventure and magic.

Things were going great, this was headed for 4stars easily, then the characters started fighting. About really stupid things.  And it wasn’t amusing. It was annoying and ruined it all for me.The girls started acting like real bitches and the guys suddenly lost their spines and whined like 5 year olds.

I almost felt like I was reading the writings of 2 authors.  It was a very schizophrenic experience and almost made me want to stop reading. Thankfully, it all worked out in the end. I just hope the next book doesn’t devolve into the kind of whining, moaning, bitch slapping and general childish’ness shown in part here.

But, the idea here, the general plot, is just totally awesome! Which is why I’ll read the next book. A self-effacing super-powered magician, working secretly for the government. How does it get better than that!?

Why Karen Miller feels the need to write as another author, I don’t understand. But that is truly neither here nor there.

Loved this book. A fast paced fantasy thriller about a lowgrade magician who magically gets bumped up and who has to deal with some serious problems.

Lots of magical’iness, a little angst, a little romance, lots of action and bam, you have this book. Almost more of a prequel, as I believe the series is called “Rogue Agent” and that aspect doesn’t come into play until the very end of the book.

I just hope the series can stay powered up…
