Publisher's Summary

Ayden Dracre, the youngest son in a family of notorious sorcerers, is content with his magical studies until Merlin leaves Caldaca in order to find a way to break his curse. While waiting for Merlin's return, Ayden makes a mistake that causes him to question his magic.

He soon discovers both his aunt and Merlin are in danger, and in order to save them, Ayden is pushed further than ever before. With two powerful enemies and a dark presence haunting him, Ayden will have to be very careful about who he trusts. Meanwhile, Merlin must rely on Ayden when his past returns to threaten his future.

    I received a free audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a good sequel, fast paced and interesting. It was well characterised, action packed and brilliantly written.

    "A great second book, every bit as good as first"

    I was excited to listen to this book because I really enjoyed the first book in the series. This is a great epic fantasy including fairies, zombies, sorcerers, Merlin, and more. As a bonus, this book is totally family-friendly without being juvenile, and it is appealing across the age spectrum. Though I listened to this audiobook, narrated by J. Scott Bennett, by myself, I know the rest of my family will enjoy it, too, so I'll give it another listen with them on our next big road trip. This book is fun and fast-paced with interesting characters, which narrator Bennett brings to life. (I really enjoy all of Bennett's narrations). I can't wait for the next book and highly recommend it for fans of fantasy, as well as people who are looking for an entertaining adventure for any age.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed the first book and the 2nd book is just as good. The plot is not that hard to follow and that makes the story enjoyable to listen to.


    What does J. Scott Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great job of the narrator

    "More of what I Wanted to Hear!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Wizard's Secret the most enjoyable?

    J. Scott Bennett's performance is EXCELLENT. Having come to enjoy the characters, writing, and story from the first book, I found digging deeper to be a pleasure


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ayden's misadventures are a pleasure. His sense of humor is great, and the culture references were a joy. Having read all 3 books at once I THINK this was in book 2, but I loved the reference to the pocket riddle!


    What about J. Scott Bennett’s performance did you like?

    J. Scott Bennett adopts other voices perfectly for each character. Merlin sounds wise and maybe snappy sometimes, Ayden sounds... well, appropriately silly at times, wistful, and light-hearted. Female voices are done in such a way as to be appropriate as well. I found his transitions to be seamless.


    Any additional comments?

    I was provided with this book free in an exchange for a review. I do not color my reviews in any way based upon this fact. I read for my own enjoyment.

    "Wonderful travel companions"
    Would you listen to The Wizard's Secret again? Why?

    I love how the characters grow and develop on their adventures through the series and the story is told so beautifully that I feel like I am traveling with them. Their adventures become my adventures and they are adventures that I want to visit again and again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really love Aiden. He is such a genuine character and he is open to learning. He wants to grow and develop and be the best that he can be. It makes me want to keep listening because I know he will do it and I want to know how.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There's a bit with Aiden and the fairies that is perfect. I can't give away more than that.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great series! I am so glad I got started in it!

    "A mix of Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland"

    I really enjoyed this funny and quirky story, that has a good mix of fantasy and paranormal creatures. Usually the fantasy and paranormal genre shouldn't be mixed, but the primary audience for this series is tween/teen/young adults, so it works fine here. I'm sure also many adults will enjoy it and it could be rated like the first Harry Potter Book - it's for everyone!

    I felt I was in a world of Harry Potter and Alice in Wonderland at the same time. We're in the Endless Forrest where you can get in but not out. We meet all kinds of creatures and the creatures/characters are well-developed. We'll also get into the world of Merlin and eventually Merlin and Aiden will have to work together. I also loved how Aiden was developed - his personality and his back-story. Very well-plotted!

    J. Scott Bennett was extraordinary in his performance and made everything come to life in a spell-binding way. I've listened to his performance before and will bet on, that this is his best performance so far. I loved his voices and humor-filled narration.

    "Great fantasy read"

    This is a fast paced, enjoyable fantasy tale that follows on well from book one. It tells some of Merlin's back story and leads Ayden on interweaving adventures as he tries to help his friends and discover where he fits in the world and who he wants to be. The characters are entertaining and have grow in depth as the story has progressed. You can not help but like Ayden's unassuming strength and reserved personality, he is funny, somewhat quirky and very likeable. Humour runs through the whole story and the narrator of the audiobook shows this well. J Scott Bennett gives individual voices to each of the characters and his inflection portrays the emotions and excitement well, bringing the characters and the story to life. I enjoyed the narration, the characters and the story as a whole, in this family friendly fantasy adventure tale. I will look forward to the next in the series. I received this audiobook in exchange for my honest opinion.

    Story
    "Didin't want to stop listening"

    I can't say how much I enjoyed this book. The characters came off the page with Mr Bennett's narration. Each of the characters has his/her own voice and was well created in the story. Many of the characters are a bit over the top bad or over the top good due to the nature of Magic in the world created. I would recommend reading/listening to the first book in this series before attempting this one. While the author does do some backstory, it's not as much as some do, for which I am grateful because I listened to the first also.

    The narration itself is clear and wonderful. Mr Bennett definitely doesn't have a robotic voice. I would not hesitate to listen to any book he narrates.

    This review copy audiobook was provided by the author/narrator/publisher free of charge.
