3.0 out of 5 stars A Sweet Romance with Magical Elements 4 July 2013
By Eric Townsend - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Water and Chaos picks up right where Accidental Sorcerers left off. Mik and Sura are training to hone their powers while blossoming as a young couple. Then we are plunged in a series of adventures each of which seem more perilous than the last. Sounds cool right?

Here's what I realized after finishing Water and Chaos, this series is, at least to me, romance with fantasy elements. I don't think that is what I expected when I was introduced to the series, but the transition from Accidental Sorcerers (mostly fantasy but with romance intertwined) to Water and Chaos (romance abound with magical happenings around it) seems to lend itself to that type of series going forward. Also in my review of Accidental Sorcerers I mentioned that I thought AS was more Middle Grade than YA. Well Water and Chaos moves more into the younger YA range so it appears that as the MC ages (13 in Book 1, 14 in Book 2) the audience and corresponding writing styles go with it. Nothing is wrong with any of these adjustments in perspective, just some guidelines to go by.

Mik continues to be a very strong MC. He's likable, he's got a good sense of humor and he's an all around good guy, easy to root for. Don't get me wrong, he isn't perfect as we find out in this book, but he's a solid model of goodness in most cases. Possibly my favorite change from AS to W&C is the edge Mik develops. I can't say why without spoilers but it breathes some life into his character to keep him from being a cliche.

Sura, on the other hand, becomes a whiner prone to fits of jealousy. She can't handle even the hint of competition for Mik regardless of what he says to reassure her and even goes over the top at one point despite everyone around her assuring her she is seeing things that aren't there. She pouts, she's moody, she just bugged me. Worst of all the reader is stuck watching Mik deal with all of her crap, none of which he deserves. Not a fan.

I highly doubt it had anything to do with what I said in my review of AS, but Kollar incorporated the previously mentioned relationship issues just like I hoped for. It did work in the sense of providing some needed conflict between the lovebirds, though not all of the side affects of that were desirable as I pointed out. What I didn't expect was that the conflict in their relationship would push the rest of the plot and mightily influence it to boot. It shows in the initial adventure to Mik's hometown and in the one to "distant lands" even more so. What the book lacked though was action. I made a comment on Twitter while reading that 25% of the way through the book "the main action point has been chasing cows...admittedly with magic but still" and it didn't get much crazier. Oh sure there was some minor skirmishes and displays of magic, enough to keep the book a "fantasy" and not bordering on some type of contemporary. However, there weren't any "shock and awe" type of moments or large displays of magic to really excite the reader. That didn't hinder the story, but it definitely changed the feel.

The world building is the shining success of the Accidental Sorcerers series. Kollar gives depth to his characters and the areas of the world they came from. There are different languages, ancestries, cultures, and everything else you could ask for. The landscapes come to life, spiny mountains, winding rivers and a certain narrow isle are described in beautiful detail. Between the diverse societies each with their own unique culture, the amazing lands and seas to discover and the in depth character development Kollar makes you want to read on and learn more, this is where the drive is to read the next book in the series each time.

Overall Water and Chaos is a good book with a character flaw, it's human and there isn't anything inherently wrong with that. It isn't an action filled book and Sura could have done with an attitude adjustment in a major way. However, the romance is typical of young teenagers, the ups and downs are to be expected. The world Kollar creates is remarkably well done and I know in the next book I will enjoy exploring it along with a very solid MC in Mik, one with an edge to him that I really appreciate being added. I look forward to the next book and maybe a bit more magic and awe than romance, but we shall see!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent YA Fantasy Tale 17 February 2014
By Eric J. Krause - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Like the first in the series, I flew through this one, enjoying it all. The characters are fun to follow, and the world is a neat one to be engulfed in during the read. Mik and Sura's relationship, which seemed so perfect in the first book and the beginning of this one, gets quite a jolt, and it's an interesting ride to see if they can get it back together. Mik's grand solo adventure shows a very different side of the world and wizards in general, and could have had an entire novel-lengthed book in itself. My one wish is the same as the first book in that this would have been expanded out from a novella to a novel to show more - more detail, more action, more of the world, more of Mik and Sura's adventures, and more of their daily lives. As a novella, it skips to only the truly important things, which I can't fault it for, but I would still have loved to see more. That's not a complaint on my part, but simply a wish. I enjoyed the writing style, world, and characters so much that I wanted to spend more time in this book! If you enjoy tales of magic, adventure, and fantasy, give this one a read!
4.0 out of 5 stars Everything I like in a main character 13 January 2014
By Mike Reeves-McMillan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It's a relief to have a well-edited indie book that isn't constantly distracting me from the story because the author doesn't know where to put the apostrophes, and it's also a pleasure to have a good story, likeable and believable characters and a well-thought-out world.

In this second volume of the Accidental Sorcerers series, teenage apprentice sorcerers Mik and Sura have a romantic misunderstanding that, for me, skirted but didn't cross the line of being unbelievable. I think the key word in that last sentence is "teenage".

Mik is everything I like in a main character: loyal, honest, brave, resourceful and talented. Cheering for him is easy.

I did wonder how the economics worked of one person working for a few days being able to feed an entire school for, presumably, a similar period, but other than that I thought the worldbuilding was well done and plausible.

I already have the sequel on my Kindle and will be reading it forthwith.
3.0 out of 5 stars Decent story and characters if you can ignore the poorly done romance 17 August 2014
By Trivial - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really want to like this series and plan to give it another try, but I hope the romantic relationship between the apprentices is eased up on a bit. They're not just young but often portrayed as children, so the over-the-top romance is too much. They met a few months ago and their love causes them that much angst? Please tone it down. It's very distracting to the parts of the story I enjoy.

Also, drop the low speech or whatever it's called. There's nothing worse then a plot device that makes intelligent characters seem like morons.

I read the series out of order but so enjoyed them I did them in order. The man has a way with his style that while simple and almost innocent it fit the stories and characters together leading me just where he intended.
