I really liked the idea of this book. I thought it was going to be a fun romp full of humor and mishaps...and to some extent it was. It was also much more of a fantasy than it seemed to be from the description (which isn't a problem; I love fantasy), and the world building felt sloppy at times. I spent the first couple chapters confused about Tion and Kail, and even once I understood that they were sprites, I never got a good image of what that was supposed to be.

However, there were good things about this book as well. The premise was definitely fun, and when the humor hit, it made me laugh out loud. The villagers were entertaining, as was the reluctant wizard, and I liked the point that he made about being summoned. There were also some good action sequences and some very entertaining conversations.
