The Wizard's Magic Kingdom Reviews
I cannot decide between a 2 star rating or 4, so let’s just go with the average. First the good 4 star: The book has a great premise to start off with and leads up to a good adventure that follows. It has a very good idea to work in our modern day world and then to cross over to a fantasy realm. Its something new that can catch your imagination. However that’s where it stops for me. The 2 star rating: You cannot get any connection with any of the characters as everything happens way too quickly. Nothing is being developed, it all feels like a rush job. The main characters people fall in love within a page on meeting the cheat with someone they just met! WHY? The entire book is just over 200 pages long and you can finish it within a couple of hours. There is also too many storylines to squash into a book with just 200 odd pages. I am still on the fence as to if I should buy the next book in the series.
I am sure that Jake Adler is a wonderful, intelligent person. He's finished writing a book, something I dream of doing. I do have one big question about this book, however. Did anyone (friends/beta readers/critique partners/mom) read this before it was published? I'm guessing not, because I feel like this major mistake would have been caught by at least someone:He continually uses the word "lightening" as in "lightening magic." This is the definition of "lightening":A drop in the level of the uterus during the last weeks of pregnancy as the head of the fetus engages in the pelvis. I assume this is not what the author intended. I understand typos happen and not everything gets caught but it is spelled that way throughout the entire book, and I just simply cannot deal with it. As a weather buff, it made me physically angry upon every occurrence. I recommend staying far away from this book.
This book is actually a good read, bar the occasional typo or two in a few words. From what I can gather, it is the first attempt of a trilogy, all of which the author has now been written so there is no need for me to wait forever to get to read the end of the story. Hat's off to any author for completing that accomplishment. I'd recommend the book for readers who are teenagers as opposed to adult readers, as anyone over twenty five may find it rather too young for them. I like the humour inside it, at appropriate points and also the Dragon characters. I may pick up the second book at some point but as I say, it is more for teenagers than for someone like me. Don't be put off by people from the typo gestapo, the errors on letters or words are very few and do not detract from what is an overall well-written, good story.
This was a really good novel. I caught about 3 typos but the author really painted bright and vivid pictures with this book. What a wonderful imagination!
