Apprentice Needed


Apprentice Needed (Wizard for Hire – 2) by Obert Skye

Ozzy Toffy’s adventure, which began in Wizard for Hire, continues when one dark and windy night, he gets out of bed, jumps out his window, and walks straight into the ocean.

More than ever, Ozzy could really use the services of Rin, the wizard he hired to help find his parents — but Rin is missing, despite Ozzy’s continual attempts to contact him. And Clark, the mechanical bird his father left him, is as peculiar and vain as ever.

When a mysterious package arrives, Ozzy and his good friend Sigi are sure that the plane ticket and thumb drive they find inside are from Rin. Trying to get Clark through security at the airport proves complicated — as most things are with Clark. But when they arrive in New York, they discover there’s even more adventure in store for them.

Will Rin return and save the day? Will Ozzy figure out why he keeps walking into the ocean? Can Sigi find a way to trust her delinquent father? Will someone please appreciate Clark the way he’d like to be appreciated? For once?

About the Author

Obert Skye read his first book at age two. He wrote his first story at age four. And he was nearly trampled by a herd of water buffalo at age six. For a short time, he lived on the Isle of Skye in Scotland, where he spent time as a candy-taster. Several years ago, Obert Skye says, he discovered the existence of Foo. Publishing his story as a fictional series was not Obert’s first choice. Nevertheless he is content that the “history” is being told.

My Review

5 Stars

We start the story with Ozzy staying at Sigi and her mother. They received a thumb drive from a stranger and think it’s a message from Rin so they heard to New York City. But the thumb drive was not from Rin and the kids are going on a perilous adventure. Of course Rin only pops in here or there just at the right moment. Ozzy is starting to show some abilities so it seems that he is an apprentice to Rin and it is looking like it is going to be a long journey for his learning. Thankfully he has Sigi and Clark to help him on his path.

I didn’t realize that this is the second book in the series. I didn’t have a problem following along but I think reading the first book would add more to the story. Ozzy is a great kid and so is Sigi. I have to say that Clark had me in stitches throughout the story. I had reserved feeling about Rin but he came through too.

It was easy to get into this story and hard to finish and leave this world. This is a great read for any age and I completely loved it. I’m going to have to go back and read the first book to see what I missed. I also didn’t realize that Obert Skye was the author of the Leven Thumps series, I have seen it and wanted to read it. I think I will be digging into that one too.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

The Lady Raven

The Lady Raven
A Dark Cinderella Tale
by Rebecca Henry
Genre: Dark Fantasy
In The Lady Raven, Rebecca Henry tells the tale of Zezolla, a little
princess abandoned by her father into the hands of her evil
stepmother and wicked stepsisters. A familiar fairy tale you may
think but all is not as it appears. The reader is soon drawn into a
web of witchcraft, lies and deceit, and gradually realises that this
is no typical fairy tale but a dark and macabre take on one. Zezolla
is treated with the utmost cruelty, neglected and vilified, and left
to live in the damp cellars of the castle. The only friends Zezolla
has are her beloved raven and her pet wolf. Her only comfort lies in
the loyalty of the creatures of the forest and her mother’s hazel
tree. Will Zezolla have the power to escape her torment and
ultimately save herself from the unscrupulous clutches of the king?
The Lady Raven is a compelling tale and one that is not for the
