Spell or High Water Magic 20 #2 characters º 109 Ant and lost Gwen has journeyed to Atlantis a tolerant and benevolent kingdom governed by the Sorceresses and a place known to be a safe haven to all female time travelers Thankfully Martin and Philip are invited to a summit in Atlantis for all of the leaders of the time traveler colonies and now Martin thinks this will be a chance to try again. Executive Summary While not as funny as the first book I still found this book a lot of fun and look forward to the next oneAudio book I m convinced Luke Daniels could read the phone book and make it sound interesting When given a funny book to read he shines even He may be my favorite audio book reader His voices are great and seems to really bring the characters to life Full Review I grabbed the first book in this series a few months ago because partially because it sounded interesting but mostly because it was read by Luke Daniels I grabbed this book however because I really enjoyed the first one and was excited to see that a second book was outMy favorite character in the series is probably Philip and he seemed to get focus in this book This book also addressed my major criticism of the first book Where are all the womenThis book sees us visit Atlantis which was used as the explanation for why there was almost no women I enjoyed the female characters introduced in this one especially the BritsTime travel stories are really hard to write well as it can all be very confusing I think Mr Meyer does a great job of handling this by having the characters be just as confused as everyone else They offer several theories to explain things but seem just as unsure of the plausibility as I was This is definitely not a hard sci fi bookThe humor in this book probably wasn t as good as the first one but that didn t make the story any less fun I did find the parts focused on Jimmy to be less enjoyable than the stuff with Philip and Martin howeverOverall I think this was another great entry in this series Almost everything was nicely wrapped up while the epilogue planted the seeds for a possible third book I hope he does write a third because I ll happily listen to it If not maybe I can get Luke Daniels to read me the phone book

Spell or High Water Magic 20 #2 characters º 109 With Gwen Of course this is Martin Banks we’re talking about so murder mystery and high intrigue all get in the way of a guy who just wants one shot to get the girl The follow up to the hilarious Off to Be the Wizard Scott Meyer’s Spell or High Water proves that no matter what powers you have over time and space you can’t control rotten lu. Originally posted at Worlds AboundSpell or High Water is the 2nd in Scott Meyer s Magic 20 series about Martin Banks and his belief shattering discovery that reality is actually a computer program In the first book we saw Martin discover the file that contains reality and figure out what it actually was and how he could use it to travel back in time give himself pretty much anything he wanted and all kinds of cool geeky stuff like that We also met a bunch of other geeks turned wizards who found the file as well and all escaped back into history for the same reason Martin did being chased by the feds for bank fraud We left off with Gwen Martin s love interest traveling back to Atlantis to live with other female sorceress and Jimmy the bad guy getting sent back to his own time with no file access The story starts up about a month after Off to be the Wizard ends Camelot is doing well the people are getting over Jimmy s craziness and the wizards are all doing their thing mostly nothing Out of the blue Phillip and Martin get a message from Gwen in Atlantis inviting them to a conference that s being hosted by the head sorceress of Atlantis to discuss unifying rules that will govern all wizards across all times The book starts out well Martin and Phillip are still hilarious but the book uickly develops issues that really kill the story for me Before going into the stuff I didn t like though I ll go over the stuff I did like 1 There s still a lot of humor in the story 2 The federal agents that were trying to arrest Martin had a bigger role in this book and they were actually pretty entertaining 3 Martin FINALLY told Gwen off and I was like HALLELUJAH She needed to stop being a wishy washy jerk 4 I loved the narrator he did an excellent job with this storyAnd that s about it for the good stuff There were a lot of things about it that made it not as good as the first one for me one thing being that this book seemingly did not want to end I honestly had to just force myself to listen to the last 2 hours It s not that the story was bad it was interesting it just had too much crap going on and way too much plot dragging Also I will be honest Atlantis really made me mad 1 The whole Brit the Elder and Brit the Younger story line was just convoluted and annoying 2 The male servants that all sorceresses had at least one of excluding Gwen If that had been a group of men that entire idea would be gross but it s ok because it s not women doing the serving Honestly I can t think of anything really very redeeming about Atlantis I think they made a good point that in most times throughout history a female witch would be persecuted but they wholly lose the moral high ground when all of their working force is built of attractive men in revealing clothes In all I ll give the story a 25 out of 5 I will probably still read the next one in the series and just hope that we never have to hear about Atlantis again

Spell or High Water Magic 20 #2 characters º 109 The adventures of an American hacker in Medieval England continue as Martin Banks takes his next step on the journey toward mastering his reality altering powers and fulfilling his destiny A month has passed since Martin helped to defeat the evil programmer Jimmy and things couldn’t be going better Except for his love life that is Feeling dist. 35 stars Spell or High Water is a good follow up to Off to Be the Wizard Admittedly a bit of the novelty factor from the first book did start to wear off and I find this volume to be weaker but the narrative retained its enjoyable comedic tone Martin and Philip were invited by Gwen to Atlantis a safe haven for all female sorceresses from a society which is far from friendly to those whom they deem as witches where a grand summit to gather all the leaders of all known wizard colonies in the world will be held In the meantime Jimmy was masterminding his way of getting back in time through the two federal agents who were looking for Martin back in the 21st century Firstly I will have to stress that this story is best enjoyed via audiobook The narrator truly brought out the best of what the author had to offer In the few times when I was just reading it off the pages I found that while it was still funny it was nothing compared to listening to Luke Daniels acting out each character to perfection Sure some the voices sounded a bit exaggerated but in the spirit of the comedic turn of this story it is appropriate The good cop bad cop representation of the two unluckiest federal agents was corny and clich d but I had to admit I really had a good laugh over it Like I ve said in my review for the first book you should not take this too seriously Miller and Murphy employed an exaggerated version of the old good copbad cop routine that Jimmy liked to call violently unstable rage aholic cop friendly talkative youth pastor cop Meanwhile in Atlantis Martin and Philip met the Britts and got entangled in a web of murder and intrigue The plot around the Britts was at times long winded and thoroughly confusing as their very co existence created a time travel conundrum that resulted in regular alliteration of its theoretical possibility And of course while all that is happening Martin was still trying to win the girlThe worldbuilding element of Atlantis was pretty darn cool That it was all created by a woman kind of makes sense from an aesthetic point of view However a society that was solely ruled by women did result in certain aspects which were not exactly tasteful in my opinion While some readers might feel offended by how such a female dominated society is portrayed I took it in stride as a form of parody given the deliberate comical narrative of the story Seriously or perhaps not so seriously some of the action scenes could belong in a campy slapstick comedy He saw the fearsome creatures the wall of flame the large audience and the international task force of wizards all clearly ready for action standing in what he had to admit were mostly bad imitations of kung fu poses Although the writing is easy and direct the author has a way of playing with and putting together iterations in a whimsical fashion that fits the narrative He was half of a two man task force assigned to investigate and possibly solve a series of possibly connected impossible occurrences that were possibly crimes While this was not as good as the first partly due to some long winded sections and partly due to the villains who annoyed me I still find it enjoyable enough to want to continue with the next books in the series It s rare to find smart comedy like this and one with an amazing narrator as well Last but not least I love the whimsical 8 bit graphic covers This review can also be found at Booknest
