    I Also Recommend:

    Engaging without being drippy.

    I found the characters to be engaging and real - like people I know. Hidden talents, hidden aspirations, classy yet disregarded. Smart without always NEEDING to show it. I want to read the sequel, NOW. Romantic without being excessively sex-driven. I think it would be a fun play or movie.

    New writer making a name

    This was a great way to start a career. The characters are believable, if a bit naive at times, and are hilarious. The plot draws from different cultures to bring us an old fairy tale with some really unexpected twists around each corner.

    Professor Gerald Dunwoody is a Third Grade Wizard. Just not a ve

    Professor Gerald Dunwoody is a Third Grade Wizard. Just not a very good one. After blowing up a staff factory and losing his job, Gerald is desperate to prove that he can be a competent wizard. Now it's off the New Ottosland, as the new Court Wizard to King Lional.

    Along with his companion, a talking bird that wasn't always a bird, Gerald soon discovers that King Lional is not what he appears to be. With a princess in trouble and a kingdom to save, Gerald suspects that he may be out of his depths. Armed only with a power he doesn't fully understand, Gerald finds himself in the fight of his life. How it ends is anyone's guess...

    The Author, K. E. Mills, does a terrific job giving her characters personality and depth. As the story unfolds I find myself being drawn into its world and becoming invested in its outcome and the well being of its hero.

    Well-written with just the right amount of humor. This book was fun to read and difficult to put down. I look forward to reading the remainder of this series and well as other books written by this author.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys snarky humor.

    Original Idea, Characters Starting to Repeat

    Karen Mills has written a few other series before this book and I have enjoyed them, but as I read through The Accidental Sorcerer, I noticed she tended to reuse the same female protagonist. Strong, independent, always wants her way, throws a fit if she doesn't get her way and all the men cave, usually quite unconventional about doing things. I have no problem with strong, independent women who show initiative and quirkiness - but using the exact same template for every series and having them always get their way gets a little old by the end of the book/series. Otherwise, the world she has created is very fascinating and I enjoyed the flow of the story.
