Publisher's Summary

Wizard scouts are the elite, deep-recon forces of the Intergalactic Empire. They are a mix of technology and magic-like abilities.

Richard, a cadet at the Intergalactic Wizard Scout Academy, is on assignment to retrieve a defecting scientist on a planet deep behind enemy lines. In theory, it should be a simple in-and-out mission. But as Richard learned long ago, nothing is ever simple. With a deadly Crosioian scout hot on his trail, Richard soon finds himself stuck with a couple of super-genius children who may hold a secret that could mean the salvation or destruction of three galaxies. Between dodging plasma rounds from heavily-armored Crosioian soldiers to battling werewolves, ogres, magic users, and deadly dimension-shifting cats the size of lions, Richard soon finds himself far outside his original mission parameters.

Even with the help of his battle computer, Nickelo, the odds of Richard completing his mission and getting the children safely home is low. Add in the interference of the mysterious entity known as 'the One' along with an all too suave master demon, and the odds of survival decreases even more rapidly. Will Richard's wizard scout training prevail, or is he doomed to fail? His only hope may well be to find allies in the most unlikely of places. Of course, a liberal sprinkling of luck wouldn't hurt either.

    "Surprise, surprise, surprise!"

    Even tho Wizard Cadet, and Wizard Defiant, are the first of this different trend of combining sorcery, magic, FTL, and self healing suits of armor, I was engrossed. Perhaps it was the military type action blended with pools of power and plasma weapons, or maybe it was the characters who were believable and well fleshed out in linear planes, Guy Williams did an admirable job in his rendition of new author Rodney Hartman text. Not exactly my cup of tea but I'm glad I explored with these wizards.

    "Dumbest dumb person EVER"

    Listening to the main character make decisions almost physically hurt. Lacking logic, Common sense, and anything that even remotely equates to intelligence. The amount of times I wanted to slam my head against the wall during this story made it very difficult to listen to. If it was possible, the character appeared to get dumber as the story progressed.

    "Disappointing..."
    Any additional comments?

    I liked the first book, i really thought it had potential and if it is an indie author with an interesting but raw first book i usually also buy the second book in hoping (and rooting) for an improvement.
    Sadly, the second book was not an improvement on the first, it was in fact worse.

    The only likable characters in the first book were the main character, his AI sidekick and an elf woman, anyone from the "Wizard Scout Academy" (including the main character's friends) is not flashed out enough to care about, the main story was also pretty ambiguous on account of mystery.

    As for the second book, the main story is ambiguous as ever, everyone in the academy including friends are still not flashed out enough to care about, the elf woman was replaced (never to be seen again) by two kids i found to be very annoying and the main character was butchered, his actions and behavior are all over the place, sometimes he's a hero wanna be and sometimes he does things like leaving behind children (that helped him) to burn to death in a fire...
    he also lost about 20-30 IQ points, EVERYONE NEEDS TO EXPLAIN EVERYTHING TO HIM, he just lost the ability to connect the dots, ANY DOTS!

    That leave's us with the sidekick AI as the only likable character in the entire book, and he is not that much likable too...

    As for the narrator he was decent, not good enough to compliment and not bad enough to complain about.

    "A great story"
    What did you love best about Wizard Cadet?

    Rich characters and interesting take on the evolution of a human society, mixing both technology and magic.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story revolves around a young man whom is stubborn and set in his ways due to his upbringing, but it shows his growth through the story by gaining friends and family and the changes with in him.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This is the second time I've listened to it... and I might do it again if the next book in the series doesn't come out soon enough. Hint, hint.


    Any additional comments?

    Just one thought....Could we hurry up with the next book or books in the series? Guess you could say I'm hooked.

    "The cadet is a heterosexual!"

    Space cadets are always homosexuals and this guy is heterosexual. He will have to become at least bisexual or he will fail his training and never become a full cadet.

    "Too much talking"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I remember from high school the 'show, don't tell'. This is a bunch of 'telling' vs showing. Everything has to be explained, every character has to have exposition. Really slowed the story down and made it not as enjoyable.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Less 'talking', more doing in the story.

    "Damn is aperently a bad word now."

    I enjoyed the first book but I could not finish this one. I don't mind a book that does not use profanity but this book uses very light "profanity" and keeps highlighting it by telling you how naughty the main character is by using words like damn.
