Publisher Comments:

Gerald Dunwoody is a wizard. Just not a particularly good one. He's blown up a factory, lost his job, and there's a chance that he's not really a Third Grade wizard after all. So it's off to New Ottosland to be the new Court Wizard for King Lional.

It's a shame that King Lional isn't the vain, self-centered young man he appeared to be. With a Princess in danger, a talking bird who can't stay out of trouble, and a kingdom to save, Gerald soon suspects that he might be out of his depth. And if he can't keep this job, how will he ever become the wizard he was destined to be...

THE ACCIDENTAL SORCERER is the first novel in the Rogue Agent trilogy, from one of fantasy's newest stars.

Review:

"Karen Miller (The Riven Kingdom) launches a trilogy, her first venture as Mills, with this droll tale of magical bureaucracy. Gerald Dunwoody, a Third Grade wizard and lowly safety inspector for Ottosland's Department of Thaumaturgy, inadvertently blows up a factory while trying to save it. Summarily fired, Gerald takes a job in almost bankrupt New Ottosland as royal court wizard for King Lional the 43rd. To prove his powers to the doubtful king and his put-upon sister, Prime Minister Princess Melissande, Gerald turns a cat into a lion and transforms the dowdy princess into a literally bewitching fashion plate, but preventing war between New Ottosland and Kallarap and making a highly illegal dragon for the king may be beyond his will and abilities. Miller's whimsical prose keeps the plot jumping and the readers laughing." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Written in the bestselling tradition of Mercedes Lackey, this novel kicks off an all-new, fast-paced fantasy series about a ne'er-do-well sorcerer with grand ambitions. Original.
