Written in the bestselling tradition of Mercedes Lackey, this novel kicks off a fast-paced fantasy series about a ne’er-do-well sorcerer with grand ambitions.

Gerald Dunwoody is a wizard—just not a particularly good one. He’s blown up a factory, lost his job, and there’s a chance that he’s not really a Third Grade wizard after all. So it’s off to New Ottosland to be the new Court Wizard for King Lional.

It’s a shame that King Lional isn’t the vain, self-centered young man he appeared to be. With a princess in danger, a talking bird who can’t stay out of trouble, and a kingdom to save, Gerald soon suspects that he might be out of his depth. And if he can’t keep this job, how will he ever become the wizard he was destined to be?

Quotes & Awards

  • “[A] droll tale of magical bureaucracy. Miller’s whimsical prose keeps the plot jumping and the readers laughing.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Mills, begins this fantasy in a light, amusing tone. But gradually the plot thickens, the atmosphere darkens, and the hero gets into some serious trouble. The colorful characters include a feminist, a talking bird, a butterfly keeper, and of course, an evil villain. It’s a world that’s magical, yet believable, and great fun to read.”

    " The main character spends the book being bullied and insulted. In the middle there's some guilt, and then a fair bit of angst. I managed to finish it but I did not have fun reading it. "
