Publisher's Summary

Three years have passed since Thordric joined the wizard council.

Together with High Wizard Vey, they have reformed the council completely. But while half-wizards can now train their magic freely and join the ranks of the mages, Thordric realizes that there are many who are completely unaware of this.

Traveling to the faraway town of Valley Edge, he meets the young archaeologist Hamlet, who is on his way to a dig site where a new discovery has been made. But not all is as it first appears. 

Once again, Thordric has to put his magic to the test - in order to stop the greatest catastrophe their world has ever seen.

This is a stand-alone novel, and can be enjoyed even if you haven't listened to other books in the series.

Magical!

Great story and narration!

Our favorite clumsy half-wizard is back, and ready to get into mischief! After tree years of tutelage under High Wizard Vey, Thordric gets the go ahead to search out half-wizards, and give them the good news that they can now be trained in Wizardry. During his mission he discovers a strange forest that appears out of nowhere and starts spreading at an alarming rate! Will he be able to save a village and stop the spread of this magical onslaught?

A great continuation of the story!

I can't wait for more!

Decent sequel

All in all, I enjoyed the first book better, main character and story were more interesting. Having put that however, this once was good too! I was really glad to see more out of the character Vae. Narration was a bit iffy at first, but again once you get into the story you don't even notice.

Enjoyable

As the second installment in Kathryn Wells' Half Wizard Thordric series, Accidental Archaeologist is a fun listen that is brought to life by Morgan Keller. This story is faster paced and more detailed than the previous book. Some questions left by the first are answered here and others are raised. Hopefully those raised will be answered in the third, which, I am looking forward to.

Theistic Book 2

I received a review copy of this book.

Sadly, I did not enjoy this book as much as I did its prequel. Minor flaws like low stakes and a lack of any real opposition (the hero can legitimately solve any problem he encounters with magic), which were forgivable in the first book, have not really improved in this, the second. Sadly, this detracts from the enjoyment of the story.

The book is still free from gore and sexuality, so it is still relatively "clean" compared to a lot of fantasy, but there are multiple scenes of co-ed nudity played for immature humor. While I would still let my children read this book, I would be less happy to see them doing so than I would be the first.

Another excellent story

I recieved a review copy of this book. It is an excellent follow up to the first book and presents a new adventure which again stretches the young main character.
