I really enjoy this series. The characters are fun and the world is colorful. This installment of their exploits was a bit confusing. The concept of the extra dimension is a bit misleading and at first, I thought it was a huge retelling of the first book. I don't think Ms. Mills set the story up very well and probably should have lead that particular dimension down its path a bit more to establish that character set.
The narrator, Stephen Hoyle, was as always very good.
I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
I bought books one and two. i enjoyed them. Then book three came along. It seemed to be a rewrite of book 01 in the series. I replayed parts of book 01 in an attempt to figure out what was wrong. I thought that an error had been made. I thought I had book 01 under book 03's title. It took me awhile to figure out the problem. It was that book 03 was using book 01 to set the stage for book 03. As a result book 03 was a nearly identical to book 01 played for a considerable length of time. Without the replay of book 01 this book would have qualified as a long short story or a novelette or its equilent. I will continue to purchase books by this author and reader. The problem I had was that too much of book 01 in the series was used.
The way book 01 was parroted for the beginning of the book. It decreased my enjoyment of this book.
The narrator was ok. The only problem I would comment on is that his voice was a little too nice for the villain.
The characters were ok. Some seemed a little weak for what they had to do.
Have the story line not start in the middle of a sentence.
It is very hard to get into and the characters have little life.
I have no idea, Stephen Hoye is a very good narrator.
disappointment says it best.
This book has a real British feeling with an insider point of view.
I love to read and I read for fun. Escape and imagination are great reasons to love a book.
I loved the Accidental Sorcerer's wit and humor. The series has villains that are true villains. By Witches Inc, most of the wit and humor was missing. In this book, the series has turned to a form of horror and the ending was distressing. Since I read for light entertainment and not stress inducing, I won't be reading the next book.
I live to ride my bike.
This not a book you will be motivated to completed in one sitting. Unless you are drying for a period piece buy something else. Stretching this into a series left nothing at the end for enjoyment.
Overall, an ok read. The first part of the book where the main characters constantly bicker was almost unbearable. The book progressed from there and had an acceptable climax with a few interesting twists.
