There are no accidents

I really enjoyed the Accidental Thief when it first came out. I even enjoyed it when book two hit, and mirrored it. Now, we have book three, and I have to say that while the book is well written and well plotted it begins to become all too familiar. Essentially, Hal Dix, the MC, gets pulled back into his gameland, and has to stop some force of nastiness before he can return home. The one thing that sort of bothered me before, and really bothered me now was how the writers basically wiped away all of the skills and abilities that Hal had achieved in the books preceding this. His other classes get locked out while he trains to become a mage. That is lazy writing in my eyes, there is no reason for that other than to say because of plot points. The other bit of bother came that not only did he have to level up one mage skill, but each elemental school before he access the fifth. This led to a series of quests for him to unlock each school, and master in days what took other wizards years to accomplish. It really stretched my credulity. I would have made it a little simpler, with him realizing that each school was similar to another, and it was only the unlocking that was hard to do, but that’s me.

Here, Hal’s family is kidnapped, and he must go after the Emperor himself in order to save them. In one sense he lacks a sense of urgency, taking over two finds to find them as he progressed, and on the other hand, I would have complained if he had kept moaning and pining for them every other paragraph. I don’t want you to feel like this isn’t a worthwhile read or story, it really is, and I enjoyed it a great deal. My biggest issue came from the familiarity and the ending when Hal decides he’s going to leave and never come back. That is so the series can continue with his daughter, Carrie, instead. The action, characterizations, and pacing are all solid. As things go the book is fun, and you do root for Hal and his comrades. The series does wrap up all existing plotlines and makes a clean slate for Carrie’s return to Fantasma next series. I can completely respect that and appreciate writers who can stick to a trilogy, when they could have played this out forever with titles like the Accidental Alchemist, The Accidental Tourist, and the Accidental Peasant.

Roberto Scarlato is the cohesive factor for this series. His voice is like a finely aged whiskey for your ears, and he was the deciding factor for appreciating book one in this series. He has a strong and powerful voice that just carries the story forward. His characterization of Hal Dix is fantastic, and he corrals a whole mess of other characters as the story moves along. I honestly think that he keeps this audio going, because each book is pretty much like the one preceding it at this point.

My only real problem was the slightly repetitive nature of the books, and the weak explanation of why Hal would never return. Thankfully, the authors have told me Hal does make a comeback in the next series!

Great conclusion to this trilogy.

I felt like this series was closed out very nicely. I like that Jamie and C.J Davis do a little interview with the narrator Roberto Scarlato, I haven't found any other books that do that and felt it was a great inclusion. The next trilogy started out pretty awesome. It follows his (the main character not the author) teenage daughter into Fantasma.

Not Accidentally Fantastic

I was hooked on Accidental Theif and when I learned Accidental Mage was on Audible, I put on hold my other listens to download and devour the third in the Accidental series. Jamie Davies is an excellent author who carries the story line and development of his characters strongly through the story. Roberto is an excellent voice acgtor bring to life the people who populate Fantasma. I appreciate that Hal's time ended in Fantasma and the family went home. I also look forward to hearing the adventures of his daughter Carrie when it comes out on audible as well. The after chat between author and narrator was a nice touch and let me see a bit behind the story of the story. I strongly reccomend this book of any fantasy fan who also enjoys the LitRPG genre of science fiction. Please keep writing!

Also, I did exchange a couple emails with Jamie Davies who is friendly and looking for ways to make his books accessible for all readers. Thank you Mr. Davies.

A great ending book to this trilogy.

I had a lot of fun with this trilogy that had progressing difficulty with each book. The whole magic system, while relatively simple, added new layers to the known level up system with the warrior and thief classes, with the addition of this mage class, of various schools of magic. As it stands, this trilogy could a nice simple package, though it opens up for a second trilogy/series with a new perspective if you are up for more. The characters are likable. The voice acting is great. The action pushes forward constantly without too many side quests, other than learning various magics. The main character is very likable, persistent, causal, confident, and not angsty or greatly lacking in common sense, and not looking for a new relationship. It's just a really well balanced series that hits a lot of great notes. It isn't ridiculously innovative, or ultra bleak/dire. This series was a great pallet cleanser and pleasant read.
