Ozzy Toffy’s adventure, which began in Wizard for Hire, continues when one dark and windy night, he gets out of bed, jumps out his window, and walks straight into the ocean.

More than ever, Ozzy could really use the services of Rin, the wizard he hired to help find his parents—but Rin is missing, despite Ozzy’s continual attempts to contact him. And Clark, the mechanical bird his father left him, is as peculiar and vain as ever.

When a mysterious package arrives, Ozzy and his good friend Sigi are sure that the plane ticket and thumb drive they find inside are from Rin. Trying to get Clark through security at the airport proves complicated—as most things are with Clark. But when they arrive in New York, they discover there’s even more adventure in store for them.

Will Rin return and save the day? Will Ozzy figure out why he keeps walking into the ocean? Can Sigi find a way to trust her delinquent father? Will someone please appreciate Clark the way he’d like to be appreciated? For once?

Wizard for Hire: Apprentice Needed is a story filled with humor and excitement that shows us the magic in everyday things.

In book two after an exciting end of the villain in book one, the story starts several months later. Rin has disappeared and now Ozzy is living with Sigi and her mother, Rin's ex-wife. Of course, it doesn't take long for things to start heating up and again and Sigi, Clark, and Ozzy are off again on a new adventure; this time to New York City. Many new things are uncovered about Ozzy, his parents, and why Ozzy's finger does weird things. Again, I love Clark the mechanical bird and his great wit. This book is exciting and has great action that keeps the story moving. This whole series is a fun one especially for tweens & teens between the ages of 10-15. Anyone that likes a little fantasy, mystery and action combined will enjoy the Wizard for Hire books.

We start the story with Ozzy staying at Sigi and her mother. They received a thumb drive from a stranger and think it’s a message from Rin so they heard to New York City. But the thumb drive was not from Rin and the kids are going on a perilous adventure. Of course Rin only pops in here or there just at the right moment. Ozzy is starting to show some abilities so it seems that he is an apprentice to Rin and it is looking like it is going to be a long journey for his learning. Thankfully he has Sigi and Clark to help him on his path. I didn’t realize that this is the second book in the series. I didn’t have a problem following along but I think reading the first book would add more to the story. Ozzy is a great kid and so is Sigi. I have to say that Clark had me in stitches throughout the story. I had reserved feeling about Rin but he came through too. It was easy to get into this story and hard to finish and leave this world. This is a great read for any age and I completely loved it. I’m going to have to go back and read the first book to see what I missed. I also didn’t realize that Obert Skye was the author of the Leven Thumps series, I have seen it and wanted to read it. I think I will be digging into that one too. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
