Review: The Wizard Takes the Cake
The Wizard Takes the Cake by Red Tash
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Book Info: Genre: Short, humorous fantasy
Reading Level: Adult
Recommended for: Those who enjoy tales of wizards, those who like to laugh.
Disclosure: I purchased this book for myself because it sounded fun. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis: The Wizard is back, and this time he's taking us to a wedding. Do you have what it takes to be a wizard's +1?
My Thoughts: What does the song “Funky Cold Medina” have to do with demons? Read this book to find out.
This one is a bit more serious. We are provided the backstory for Nemesis, and the demon, and Monte Carlo, and a tragic tale it is. I was impressed by Tash’s ability to make me laugh right in the middle of all the angst, and I loved the ending.
I haven’t paid much attention to the few typos I found in this series, but this one had a misuse so hilarious I just have to bring it up. After describing the smell of food coming in through an open window, the wizard describes himself as “ravished.” Ummmmm... I really don’t think this is what the author meant. By the context, I would guess she meant “famished” or “ravenous.”
These stories are a lot of fun, and I’ll be watching for new ones. If you like tales of wizards, and to laugh, then definitely check the Wizard Tales out.
