Another new review

Author and Gentleman Scholar Mike Reeves-McMillan  took the time to pick up the free podiobook of The Wizard That Wasn’t and had this to say:

It’s always a pleasure to discover a new indie author who knows how to tell a good story.

The Wizard that Wasn’t moves along at a good pace. There’s always something happening, and the stakes are always high – and always personal for the characters. The characters, in turn, are distinct, their motivations are clear, their conflicts are understandable.

There’s humour, but also drama. Sometimes there’s humour and drama at the same time, as when the protagonist is shut in a closet running a machine that he hopes will rescue the princess, and has to come up with ever wilder excuses about what he’s doing in there so as not to get shut down.

I listened to Ben Rovik’s zestful reading on Podiobooks, and as soon as I’d finished I bought the ebooks of both this and the sequel (which I’m currently enjoying).

If you want to see what it looks like when dieselpunk-fantasy is done well, get hold of this one.

You can check out Reeves-McMillan’s book City of Masks at Amazon, Smashwords, or as a free audiobook on Podiobooks!

    Thanks, Ben. You can get an ebook of City of Masks at Smashwords or Amazon if you prefer that format.

      Got it! I updated the post to include more accurate links. I’ll be checking out the Podiobook myself soon 🙂
