I absolutely loved the first book in this Fantasy series, suitable for all ages. This world is special, and Kollar takes care to develop his characters who then spin the plot in a strange yet familiar world. The main characters are young, a boy, Mik, and girl, Sura, just coming into their powers under the tutelage of Bailar, a wise elder. Bailar sees that Mik has very special powers, stronger than most. Mik also devises unique ways to use these powers. With Bailar's guidance, Mik and Sura harnes ...more

What happens when a child's rhyme becomes reality? Mik finds out and then is at a loss as to how to dispel the spell. The adventure continues with Mik seeking the aid of the nearest sorcerer. A magical tale, full of adventure, coming of age, education, budding romance, treachery, discipline and friendship. I enjoyed learning about each new character, and grew fond of a few of them. The story begins with Mik at about the age of 12 - 14 (?) and continues into his very early YA teens perhaps 16, ma ...more

Smooth writing with no editing issues. A well-told story with good personal stakes for the characters, though they perhaps beat their challenges a little too easily. The characters are likable and relatable. The setting and the magic system are somewhat generic, and the combination of iron being rare and cannon existing is a little hard to reconcile. Overall, though, I very much enjoyed it and wished it was longer.

Friendship, excitement, and education

The author is telling a story of new found friendship and love mixed with the education of the heroes. A great read and simple enough for children.

A promising start to a series, Accidental Sorcerers combines magic, dragons and young love in a short and sweet package. While Accidental Sorcerers is novella-length, there is definite room for potential growth of the characters and some solid foundations already in place. More expounding on the dragons themselves, while not a must, would really enrich the series, but we will have to wait and see where Kollar wants to take his young characters.

Mik, the main character, embodies what it is like to

Accidental Sorcerers was an easy, enjoyable read, something I could pick up and read a scene or a chapter during work breaks or before bed. It’s short, the first in a series of novellas, and I look forward to reading more about Mik and Sura in the next books.

As far as plot goes, the book reads like a series of connected short stories, which I liked. It reminded me of The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman in that regard. My favorite chapters (without giving anything away) were toward the end of the b

This book was awful.

If I didn't have my personal rule of finishing a book if I buy it, I would not have finished it. The characters were very shallow and felt half-formed at the best and felt very cookie-cutter generic without any unique qualities to redeem them. There is also a big question mark on how old the main characters were. One page, Mik and Sura are a couple of cute twelve year old kids who like each other. The next, they're acting like a couple of horny teenagers talking about sneaki

It's not uninteresting, but the writing strikes me as rather juvenile and it's not really a *book*. It's more like a dispassionate recounting of chronological events in the life of the main character to the reader.

So disjointed and confusing I concluded the author needs to go to school. Read some books about how to write books, dude.

Interesting, but lacking that spark that really keeps me wanting to read more. Not badly written, but it seemed to assume knowledge I didn't already have.
