This sequel of #TheLastDragonslayer is superb. In this book will be a magical contest of two houses of wizards. The outcome of this contest needs to change the relationship to #magic. I don't for a moment regretted that decided to read this series of books! I recommend to anyone who wants to escape from everyday worries and dive into the world of magic!

Buechersuechtling Thanks for your review that unfolded to me in what order to read the books. 🙇🏽‍♀️ 6mo
Erofan @Buechersuechtling If it's not possible, you can read the second book separately - the plot is self-contained! But to understand the references to the first book and to feel the fullness fictional universe, I recommend to start with the first book! 😉 6mo
Buechersuechtling @Erofan Thank you for sustaining me with all that helpful information. 🤗 (I just made a screenshot 📸 ofyour review to have it available during my next browsing through the library.) (edited) 6mo

Thanks to my wonderful local library's Overdrive, I already have my hands on book 2. And a huge thank you to @RainyDayReading for the heads-up that this is a series! #currentlyreading

RainyDayReading You‘re very welcome!! 😊 Hope you enjoy! 8mo
Swe_Eva @RainyDayReading So far, it feels the same as the first one. Fingers Xed! 8mo
rretzler This is the only series of Fforde‘s I haven‘t read yet - don‘t know what I‘ve been waiting for! 8mo
Swe_Eva @rretzler It is technically YA, so less complex than the Thursday Next series, but just as enjoyable and satisfying! 8mo

"1.2 GigaShandars?" asked Tiger. "Isn't that the power drain requirement of a -"
"It is," I replied, not far behind him. "Call 999 and mutter 'Quarkbeast' in a panicky voice."

This was just as good as the first one. I feel like I am starting to understand the affection that Jennifer has for the residents of Kazam. I still want a Quarkbeast as a pet and having a Transient Moose wouldn't be too terrible either.

Jasper Fforde did it again with this fun follow up to The Last Dragonslayer. What is nice is this book is an adventure in itself, so while reading the first book is helpful, one could read this without too much confusion. I liked this equally to the first one with good character growth. Fun and funny.
