This book is a lot of fun. Think James Bond, with magic, and a comedy chaser. Gerald Dunwoody accidentally blows up a factory and suddenly finds himself up to his neck in the Department of Magic, Spy Division. Luckily, his best friend Reg--queen of yesteryear long since turned into a bird--has got his back. Things go from bad to worse, and Reg can't help giving him a hard time. Read on to find how Gerald saves the day, laughing all the way.

First in a series, so the good news is there's more to read when you are done! Highly recommended!


— From David's Diamonds


Gerald Dunwoody is a wizard. Just not a particularly good one. He's blown up a factory, lost his job, and there's a chance that he's not really a Third Grade wizard after all. So it's off to New Ottosland to be the new Court Wizard for King Lional.

It's a shame that King Lional isn't the vain, self-centered young man he appeared to be. With a Princess in danger, a talking bird who can't stay out of trouble, and a kingdom to save, Gerald soon suspects that he might be out of his depth. And if he can't keep this job, how will he ever become the wizard he was destined to be...

THE ACCIDENTAL SORCERER is the first novel in the Rogue Agent trilogy, from one of fantasy's newest stars.
