    getting mom and dad involved was pretty great, but the author forgot a few details along the way Spelling of Narlh s name, for one The fact that he established that dragons teeth do not grow back, for another He even brought up Maxwell s Demon but not as a character possibly these books are greater appreciated when spaced out enough to forget the fine details.

    Matthew Mantrell, Prince Consort and Royal Wizard of Merovence an alternate world version of France , returns to his old New Jersey home to find it overrun with gangs and drugs He brings his parents to his new home with him, and it turns out they re able to work magic too This is also the first book in the series to deal with the magical world s Muslims Since the historical period paralleled in the fictional world is one in which the Moors were making incursions into Spain, perhaps this was unavoidable but it s also a little difficult when it s already been established that medieval Catholicism is literally true in that universe The Islamic invaders turn out to be unwittingly following an evil sorcerer who operates in both worlds, and is also using a magical drug to recruit criminals in our world When they find out about this, they turn away from him and end up peacefully settling in Ibile This book also brings jinn into the series It s a little heavy handed, but does make some interesting additions to the magical world and its connections to our own.

    I always forget how good his books are until I crack open another and sit there giggling for a while This is light fun, and I enjoyed the inclusion of family However, for some it could get a bit preachy True love and the honoring of one s spouse is well worth showing, but bludgeoning people with the same theme at least three times over makes it feel less worthy Still, once that backed off and the story went on, it was fun and frivolous again.

    So far, Stasheff s bible thumping has overpowered the fun and playfulness of this once vibrant series His attempts to recapture the intrigue and wonder of the first book are overshadowed by his thinly veiled attempts to illustrate the damage and dangers of drugs, all the while showing a very unrealistic reactions and behaviors by all of the characters A weak and preachy chapter in an otherwise fun series.

    This was the first book of the Wizard in Rhyme series that I ever read, and the one I always go back to when I feel like reading something that I know I ll enjoy reading again Stasheff s style is very Fantasy, but the touches of skepticism and scientific leanings by the characters make it seem believable than your average Fantasy book.

    While the series starts out as quite entertaining, it starts to fall off in plot quality after the first four titles.
