Waiting On Wednesday



This week's Waiting on Wednesday?


The Warlock
by Michael Scott

As far as I can find, this book doesn't have a cover yet, so I posted the cover from the first book in the series!
Release Date: May 24, 2011

Before I first started reading this series I thought, "Oh great, something else profiting off the success of Harry Potter... blah"

I quickly realized this book offers something totally different from the Harry Potter series, and to think of it like that was wholly unfair. Michael Scott is an expert in faerie tales and mythologies, and you can tell that his background is rich in these topics when you read these books.

They play with being immortal, and with being at historical events and possible even being the cause of them.

  3. HP is one of my all time favey faves! I saw this recently, and at first, I thought the same thing you did. I agree with you that it was unfair to think the author was just trying to make money off the HP series. I really enjoy stories about alchemist. They are a strange and fascinating group of people.
    Great pick! Thank you. =)

  7. Oh wow, thanks for sharing. I thought the same when I first heard about this book. Thought maybe he got Rowling's permission or something.

  9. You really made me want to check this series out. I think I've seen this book around, but you've made it sound very intriguing...and you were big enough to admit you rushed to judgement. Good for you. I'm putting it on my TBR list. Thanks for visiting me earlier.

  15. Hi Julie!

    I think you'll enjoy your choice XD I think this was one of the few books that I actually found myself laughing out loud at... it's one of those ones that, if read in public places, gets you funny stares because you just start guffawing!
