This is the second book of the Chronicles of Kazam. Jennifer Strange is acting manager of Kazam Magical Arts Management, which is a company that provides magical services for its customers and manages general magic usage. The main character, Jennifer Strange, is acting manager of Kazam while the real manager, the Great Zambini, is stuck in some sort of teleporting limbo.
In this book, Conrad Blix, head of Kazam’s rival iMagic, hatches a plot to gain complete control over general magic management. Although this is the main storyline, there’s still a lot of other stuff going on, mostly whimsical sorts of things. There are all sorts of fun little things popping around, like the Transient Moose or the light ball that runs on sarcasm. The ending ties everything up nicely, and Jennifer manages to pull things together in clever ways.
This is a 4 and like Funfetti cake. It was fun to read, and there were all sorts of fun little bits stuck around the story. The plot wasn’t the thickest, but it was engaging. The book was a good length. This is a good story for anyone looking for a light, fun read. And it takes place in the Ununited Kingdoms, which is just fun to say.
