The Wizard and The Floating City by Christopher Rowley

This book is set in the same world as Bazil Broketail.  Bazil Broketail is the famous fighting dragon featured in an entire rollicking series.   This book features a disposed Prince and his reluctant lover’s battle against despicable evil. 

First I really enjoyed Christopher Rowley’s Bazil series.   I did not think met the bar he established with that work.   The book was entertaining but it wasn’t nearly as captivating as Bazil.   Prince Evander and Princess Serena were not loveable characters, likeable but not loveable.   The realm was richly populated with all manner of interesting peoples and critters.   There was reference to Bazil and his ilk.

The evil protagonists were thoroughly evil with strange chinks in their power.   There was a good segue into intolerance and acceptance of change in the Neild and Eleem relationship.   The carpet’s personality was puzzling.   Overall it was a quick and amusing read but do not look at it as a primo example of Rowley’s work.   If you enjoy this book a little, you should really enjoy the Bazil Broketail series.

I recommend the book.
