The Wizard of London by Mercedes Lackey

Since I loved Phoenix and Ashes so much by Mercedes Lackey I decided to read the next one in her Elemental Masters series. It took me 2.5 days. I was literally laughing out loud at parts. Rather than focusing on Magicians this book focuses on those with the extra sense of being psychics. I thought it was interesting because it delved into how frauds behaved and how no two psychics have exactly the same abilities. The ending was totally a bit cheesy but oh well. If you remember Lord Aldercroft from Phoenix and Ashes and his Master's Circle he's one of the characters everything revolves around.

Best part? Robin "Puck" Goodfellow! He was awesome and he is why I loved it even though he wasn't in the entire book. The main point was that Shakespeare didn't do him justice and he also finds it amusing to sneak into plays and perform as himself.

A nice light read, perfect for avoiding studying for final exams.

If you're liking the Elemental books, you should read the first ones too: The Fire Rose (beauty and the beast), The Gates of Sleep (sleeping beauty), and The Serpent's Shadow. I like them all.

I have the Wizard of London sitting at home and need to pull it out and read it over the holiday!

yeah, i've been planning on reading those. I wanted to read them before Wizard of London but they only had the one book and the store.

You don't necessarily have to read them in order, so it's not a big deal. There are minor characters that carry over to give some consistency.
