appropriate choice of narrator, left me wanting more. the story sadly ended jest as I was getting into it.
Where does Rise Of A Wizard rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Well - it's a short piece - but i was definitely engaged. The narration is lively, with great characterization and strong comic skill. The group of misfit magical friends are sassy and fun. It's kind of a Dungeons and Dragons quest tale with a gay twist. I wish the entire story was available in one long form... but I certainly will look out for the next installment.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I love the super sassy gay fairy who is still bitter because his parents kicked him out for being too fairy of a fairy. He's shameless and snarky and really fun.
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene where they have rescued a sexy knight and he finally wakes up is really fun... the characters all respond in really cute ways and the giant character made me laugh out loud.
Any additional comments?
If you like short fantasy and m/m whimsical fiction, you'll enjoy this. It's well written with really endearing characters and the beginning of a quest that lays out a really great foundation for a future story arc.

The only negative thing about this book is it was way too short. Although, I must admit, Mr. Leddy packs a lot into it. It definitely made me want to continue the series. I truly hope the next book comes out in audio with Joel Leslie. He is amazing and really brings these characters to life with his performance.

This was a really funny story that constantly made me laugh! Kinda reminded me of "The Lightning-struck Heart" with the wisard, giant and (instead of a unicorn) glittering fairy. Loved the sassy jokes and even if it was so short the story is a great start of the series. Really hope they deside to continue this someday becoise Joel Leasly was just perfect for the roll and I need more!
