Back to being a professional wizard

The second book in the Magic 2.0 series sees our Wizards moving to Atlantis. Atlantis is a place run by women, who are called sorceresses. Males are relegated to servants who live the good life in return for sexual favours (or, that's how it came across to me).

This follows the similar style of writing and humour from the first book. Unlike the first book, there are two story threads. The first are the Wizards in England/Atlantis and then there is Jimmy's story (the same one from the first book). Both are enjoyable, but Jimmy's is a little predictable.

Atlantis has Brit the Elder and Brit the younger - basically the same person occupying the same time. This then leads on to a lot of Time Travel story lines, which is the main plot for this book.
The reason for the plot was a little weak to me, but the journey was fun so I can let that fall.

The audio again was brilliant.

Keeps the computer magic going!

Fantastic and Funny Fantasy!
Meyer's intriguing concept and enjoyable writing makes this second installment as great an experience as the first.

Luke Daniels attempt at a Norwegian accent still hurts my ears and my national pride. :-)

A less intense, more fun take on the Matrix...

Loved the first book and have enjoyed the second in the series, although the story line was less appealing to me in the second book. Easy listening with a few laughs and a good dose of cleverness. If you're after something heavy and wrinkle-inducing, it won't be this, but hey, we all need some levity from time to time and this fits the bill for me.

Just fantastic

Second book in the series, very funny and I'm no expert but think they are well written.
Luke Daniels does such a good job, his English accent could do with some work but he really does do an excellent job at helping you to visualise all these characters. He injects light and shade into the reading and I'm really impressed.

love it!

2nd in series, 1st is stronger IMHO but it's great to meet up with old characters that feel like old friends and hear more about there world, very enjoyable nonsense. Heading for book 3 right now :)

more of the same

...but that's a good thing. Excellent narration as usual and a decent plot (though Jimmy's arc felt like a bit of a misfire). It's not as strong as the first in the series but it is fun, with plenty of laugh-out-loud moments.
