    While there are a number of good things about this book, I am disappointed and irritated by the fact that Mr. Stasheff felt it was necessary to repeat a scene from Her Majesty's Wizard, verbatim and in full. The only things which changed in this book were the characters' names.

    While the series starts out as quite entertaining, it starts to fall off in plot quality after the first four titles.

    Quest bogs down in philosophy blather, repetition, plagiarism from #1,2 in series; denial reputes hero. Saul, seeking his only pal Matt, wakes from spider bite to spectacular scenery "most glorious sunsets" p 43, a world where rhymes are spells, and Good always conquers Evil (no spoiler). Saving spirit and body of gorgeous Angelique (screams, cries, thus motivates) trapped by evil Queen Suettay also frees country of Allustria ('Allemagne' (en Français Germany) "combined with Austria" p 49).

    Originally published on my blog here in August 2000.The third of Stasheff's Wizard in Rhyme series almost completely ignores the characters introduced in the first two novels. Indeed, it reprises a good deal of the plot of the first one, Her Majesty's Wizard, with a different central character, as Saul Bremener looks into the disappearance of his friend Matt Mantrell, finds the parchment Matt had been working on before he vanished, becomes obsessed with it in turn, and finds himself in a fantasy [...]

    Good book interesting philosophy. The action was good Saul/Paul was a reluctant hero. Who fought himself every step of the way and refuse to choose sides between God and the Devil as was the way of the people in the "world that he stumbles into searching for his friend Matt. Even when confronted with the obvious he insisted that it was all a hallucination unfortunately it was one that could hurt you or kill you. His lack of beliefs in magic was funny even as he was busy casting spells left and r [...]

    I really liked this book, but again I would have re liked I if the author would have explained more of the Catholic or Christian aspects do those of us who didn't get a lot of the Church education.Please explain more of the Christian views for those of us who didn't get to spend or were given much chance to be exposed to a Secular teachings. Thank You !

    I thought this book stood well on its own. It is the first book I have read in this series and I would read others. A multi-dimensional world, an unlikely hero, interesting characters, true love and yet not a love story who could ask for more?

    This is an interesting twist on the term witch doctor. It has some Christian themes that are well-done in a world where good and evil are fighting a huge battle. I enjoyed the writing style, the story, and the ending.

    We get to drop back to the time when Matt first changed worlds here and follow one of his friends as he ends up following. A lot of the same humor ground gets ployed from a different point of view with a change in view-point. Still fun still worth reading.Brain candy, but good brain candy.

    I like this series the best of the one's Ive started.

    Nicholas
    About the same as the first two books. Just basic, good fantasy.

    gaining his understand of rhyme the wizard finds the mythology of the world does not conver everything
