This book started out hilarious and suddenly became serious, which wasn't what I expected from the synopsis on the back cover. I was disappointed. If he stuck with funny, he would have been brilliant. Instead, the story was fairly well written with a few developed characters, a shallow plot, and overblown dangers. It's still worth reading, but nothing special.

A whimsical look of what might happen if the government ever decided to take "magick" seriously and create a bureacracy about it. Of course, anyone that "knows" or "believes in" magic knows that this stuff in the book is pure fiction. Magick doesn't work that way because it's internal, not external.

This book has it's slow spots where it tends to...more
I really liked this book at the start but midway through it changed direction and the enjoyment factor decreased. Sort of the reverse of The House that Jack Built which took a while to get into before enjoying to its conclusion.
