Jennifer | 4 comments I had such great luck with you guys in a previous question, I thought I would try one more book series that I have always wanted to find to read again.
I remember there was a Young boy Wizard? Sorcerer? Magician? (I've forgotten the term used) He is taught by a Lizard man, At one point they are caught and hung by knights or thieves- the boy survives by using a hoover spell to keep the rope from killing him, the entire time he is distraught thinking about the Lizard guy being killed, but after the knights/thieves leave, the Lizard guy shows that he was able to tighten his neck because of special muscles and wasn't dead. They end up in a dimensional bazaar/market and run into a redheaded woman that the boy instantly has a crush on. In one of the books they ended up in a vampire world. In another there was a war, and I believe they had a gargoyle that fought on their side.
I borrowed this series from a girl that was in my Spanish class in 1998, I have desperately tried to find her on FB to ask her, but I haven't had any success. Can you guys help? This is the last series I'll have to ask about, I'm usually great at remembering enough to find them on my own.

General series information can be found here:
