The tiny kingdom of Yurt is the perfect place - or so it seems - for someone who barely managed to graduate from the wizards' school, especially after all that embarrassment with the frogs. But Daimbert, newly hired Royal Wizard of Yurt, senses an evil spell at work. But who could be responsible? The beautiful young queen? Her flighty aunt? The dour chaplain? The old, retired Royal Wizard, who seems to know more than he's saying? Or someone from out of the castle's past? Daimbert quickly realizes that finding out and saving his kingdom may take all the magic he never learned properly in the first place, with his life the price of failure - good thing he knows how to improvise!

Light hearted fantasy, funny and imaginative!

If you could sum up A Bad Spell in Yurt in three words, what would they be?

Imaginative, witty, fantasical.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Daimbert. He is a slightly in competent wizard who strives to do the best to his ability. His first person narrative, is witty, charming, and down right endearing.

What does Eric Vincent bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have listened to hundreds upon hundreds of audio books. Eric Vincent is EASILY in the top 3 narrators I have EVER heard. His voice of Daimbert(and the other characters) is absolutely FLAWLESS. I found myself just snuggled up on my couch and following along with the audiobook to my paperback copy of the book.
It is about time this ingenious series has been put to audio, and the narrator could not possibly be better!!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

We could only be so lucky if Hollywood actually made the Yurt books into big budget movies.

Any additional comments?

The World of Yurt books by C. Dale Brittain, are by far one of the best series of fantasy I have ever read. I have read thousands of fantasy books. I would never get tired of the world of Yurt, and the character of Daimbert. I wish there were 50 of these books to the series. Sadly there are only 6...hopefully the series will always continue.
This is light hearted fanatsy--it is very whimsical, witty, and colorful. With each page, you can FEEL the world that Brittain has created. You simply don't read these books--you SEE them. Each novel is FUN, and you are saddened when the story ends because you persistently want MORE.
If you ever get tired of reading the darker gritty stuff(which I do), 'The World of Yurt' books are the PERFECT escapism. You will not regret it.

Eric Vincent did a great job

I'm the author, and it seems sort of odd to be "ranking" my book, but I wanted to give Eric Vincent a shout-out for doing a great job of narrating Daimbert. (And the form demands that I choose "stars" before writing comments.)
Especially I wanted to comment, if anyone is worried about glitches in the second file--any problems have been taken care of. Enjoy the listening experience!
