Summary

Henry Noble carries a heavy load.

For the two years since the disappearance of his father, he has toiled as the family's chief breadwinner.

Protector of his mother and two obnoxious younger brothers, he finds himself trapped in the drudgery of a boring job counting the King's gold, all the while dreaming of a life of magic and wizardry.

When a glimmer of light appears, he snatches at it only to stumble into treachery and deceit. Henry and his timid friend Peter are forced to embark upon the scariest journey of their lives. Secretly wishing their fearless friend D.C. was with them, their dread is overshadowed only by the sticky ending they know lurks around every corner.

An epic fantasy about courage and passion, friendship and ingenuity, A Bookkeeper's Guide to Practical Sorcery delivers such a no-nonsense description of the mechanics of magic, you'll wonder why you weren't taught it at school.

Fantastic

I was a backer for the Kickstarter of this audiobook.
After having the pleasure of meeting Miss Russell, and listening to the audiobook of her Elite novel, I decided to back the Kickstarter and see what the end result was. The story is fantastic, with characters you root for and some great dramatic moments plus a couple of funny bits too. The narration is spot on, the varying voices really sell the performance and make the listen that much more enjoyable. This has been one of the few times backing a Kickstarter did not end up leaving me feel disappointed.

Nice comedy of accountancy and wizardry

I never knew accountancy could be so thrilling and dangerous! Saw Ben Affleck's film recently too - now convinced I'm in the wrong career.
the story is full of fun adventures and comedy moments.

The story moves so slow.

The story moves so slowly that I lost all interest in finishing the book and moved on.
