Review: Wizard

Wizard is the second book in the Gaea trilogy (mis-spelled on Amazon for whatever reason). I'd forgotten how good these books were, and these are certainly page turners. Not quite science fiction, not quite fantasy epic, there are quests assigned by a goddess, and then a motley group of people put together, all of whom have mixed motives.

When we encounter the continuing characters from the previous books, they're transformed beyond recognition,  but still recognizable. When the action starts you're drawn in and then after that it's world-building interspersed with plot unfolding.

Unfortunately, it suffers from the middle book syndrome: enough plot gets unfolded to get you going, but not enough gets resolved for you to feel satisfied. Nevertheless, it's exciting reading and well worth the effort. Recommended.
