Summary

My Name is Otto Schneider and I am a wizard. I think. 

When a missing person case brings me into contact with the only other supernatural creature I have ever seen, it’s not long before I am ass-deep in trouble. 

The police don’t like me, there’s a clandestine organisation who want me to join them, and what might be a demon trying to catch me. When I refuse to play ball with any of them, my life starts to get tough, but I had no idea how low they might stoop to force my hand. 

Soon they will find out just how badly they underestimated me. I hope. Have I bitten off more than I can chew? 

Somehow, I need to escape captivity, cross to a mysterious demon realm, rescue a girl, and find my way back. Easy, right? It might be if they hadn’t confiscated my wand. 

Thankfully, I’m not alone, I have a powerful werewolf as an ally. If only he wasn’t such an annoying, snarky d-bag.

wasnt expecting that

Well, as audible has taken me down a random path of recommend books, I cast out alittle for something similar but different. I came across this by Higgs. I really enjoyed it. style and humour appealed, I'm eager to read the next.

horrible German accent

the narrator was a bad pick for this. the story is ok but the narrator ruined it for me. the only reason I finished was to be able to start book 2 with out botering with this one.

Ohhhhh! This was a Great 1st in Series!!

I like this Audible book Very, Very much. I enjoyed the way the author presented the MC, who With no other idea of what he was decided to call himself a Wizard. This storyline was fun and enjoyable and I believe many people will love to read or listen to this book

Awesome

This is the first book in a new series that I found to be awesome. Otto is a wizard who has had to teach himself the magic that he has. All of the characters are interesting and unique in their way. There is lots of magic and humor throughout. The narrator does a wonderful job of bring each character out in their own unique way.

Snarky Heaven/Hell retelling Epic Urban Fantansy

A fantastic start of a new series! Lots of laughs, magic, fights, creatures and an interesting retelling of heaven and hell, angles and demons. This was fast paced with plenty of action. Otto and the other characters are likable with unique personalities. Highly Recommended.

Coffee, Dragons & Poison

Otto was 14 when he discovered he had an ability that needed to be kept secret. He is a wizard who is mostly self taught. Now he's on a mission to find the man he saw in his house the night his wife went into a coma. Unfortunately the police do not like him and he finds himself spending alot of time in the jail on flimsy charges. Then he meets a police woman who believes in the supernatural. In trying to solve his personal case he gets drawn into something a lot bigger and draws the police woman into the mystery. Along the way he meets a werewolf and forms a friendship, of sorts, with him. Otto finds he is not alone any more.
Tim Toddhurst draws you into the story and keeps you enthralled.
Fantastic audio and story!!
