Funny, Interesting, and All Around Great

I wasn't sure what to expect with this book, but it was definitely a winner. It was full of humor and gave a slightly new spin on magic. It reminded me a little of another book called Heirs of Grace, though that one was full length.
The story tells of a divorced and somewhat down-and-out man who gets a letter from his long estranged uncle. The letter, which included a sizable sum of money, tells him to come and visit him as soon as possible. Without much else going on in his life, he decides to accept the adventure and visit his uncle at his home which is unsurprisingly hidden away in the middle of nowhere. He is quickly blindsided by the fact that his uncle and cousin are wizards, and apparently so is he. A training lesson gone wrong sends him into a parallel world where witches, faeries, vampires, and ghosts are all real. He pairs up with a third-rate wizard in a hasty trek of survival and mystery.
Although this was only a short story, I was completely pulled in. I listened to the entire thing in one sitting. I'm looking forward to listening to the next chapters in the story. I'm hoping that the next segment of the story will be a little longer.
