"Fans of Harry Potter will love this novel"
In spite of being a lowly Dweller, over-achiever
Edgewick 'Wick' Lamplighter serves as the Third-Level
Librarian in the Vault of All-Known Knowledge. Even more
incredible is that this member of a race that is
considered beneath the purebreds (Dwarves, Elves, and
Humans) plans to one day becomes a Second-Level Librarian.
Wick's only weakness is his love of adventure books, which
sometimes gets in the way of his work.
Wick is assigned to deliver a package to the Customs
House. However, instead of a quiet stroll, Wick soon
fights evil attackers, but loses when someone knocks him
out from behind. Sent off to sea without a choice, Wick is
going to have one adventure after another as each deadly
scenario leads to the next. He no longer lives his life in
a book; instead Wick struggles just to survive.
THE ROVER is a fun to read fantasy thriller that never
slows down for a moment as the half-pint sized hero fights
several deadly foes. The story line never takes itself too
seriously and the characters are likable so that the
audience enjoys the toboggan speed of the adventures. The
Potter crowd and discerning adult fantasy afficionados will
gain much pleasure from Mel Odom's opus.
