Wendell is a young man who learns what his potential is while on a strange, enchanted world with a funny old wizard and ugly troll to mentor and guide him. Prelude to a Hero, the debut book about how Wendell came to be the one expected to save an entire world. . . by accident.
I enjoyed prelude to a hero, being inside Wendell's head was a fun time, this awkwardly geeky teen that is accidentally thrown on a path of a hero to save a far away planet from evil.
All the terminology was a little bit hard to get through, The Book Mystress mostly reads about Vampires and paranormal so you kind of get used to the terminology of the Paranormal realm but after I got past that it was pretty smooth sailing.
Wendell is up there with Peter Parker or Clark Kent in the sense you would never expect him to be the hero.
This novel is a quirky introduction to a world that you will easily and happily dissapar in to and wonder where your day went.
Jamie Buckley's writing captivated me and had me smiling the whole way through.
While I would primarily recommend this series to boys, I did enjoy it and can not wait to see where Wendell's adventures take him.
