Summary

Young Kase and his faithful partner Murdox – who just happens to be a talking wolf-dog – are agents for the Incantation Enforcement Agency, Counter-Curse Division. In a world where magic and technology are intertwined, they have the unpleasant job of righting magic that has gone wrong. Following the completion of the difficult task of rousting some pesky nixies, they learn that their next assignment involves saving an elf king who is slowly turning to stone after drinking a mystical afternoon tea. What begins as a typical quirky assignment turns out to be a quest that takes them to forbidden lands, where they encounter magical beasts and unique challenges destined to test all their skills and intelligence.

One Wizard Place

What disappointed you about One Wizard Place?

It is not often that i come across a narrator that I literally cannot listen to but this is one. Much as I admire someone with a speech impediment overcoming their problem and reading to an audience, it spoiled my listening experience beyond tolerance and i gave up listening.Also the sounds in the background is most irritating too.The storyline itself came across a bit disjointed like someone had tried to stitch several short stories together.

What will your next listen be?

Not anything narrated by this narrator :(

What didn’t you like about Katy Davies’s performance?

Poor.

Great Book for a Road Trip

I bought this book for a road trip with my children (ages 10 and 12). I have to say it was great, the narrator's voice is charming and the story kept the kids completely interested the whole time. It was one of the easiest 6hr trips we've taken in a long time. Though the book is for young adults the parents will like it too. Really fast paced and generally fun to listen to. …Must buy for that long drive.

Loved it!

I loved this fast paced book - though it appeared as if it were a series of short stories strung together (one short story in itself, an interlude, a longer short story and then a novella) rather than a novel. Children and adults both will enjoy this tale of the two investigators from the Counter Curse division of the IEA. It is fantasy at its best with a talking dog, orgres, magic, elves and even a dragon.

Although it may be a bit violent for very young children, it is a good story for a long drive. I particularly enjoyed the vivid descriptions of the different types of transportation in this world. (Like all the best amusement park rides.)

The only thing that I didn't care for is the portrail of female characters. There were very few of them and they were typically silly and/or incompetent.
