I ended up enjoying this book a lot more than I had expected to! This book is a definite tongue-in-cheek fantasy book, with an interesting self-aware look at how the characters approach magic and quests and how it would affect someone's life. VERY obvious allusions to Chronicles of Narnia and name-dropping of Harry Potter also make it look a little critical of the genre, but all in good fun. Ending was somewhat disappointing, but maybe the sequel makes up for it.
