    1. What at first seems to be a typical humorous modern fantasy set in the near future shows a certain amount of depth (and darkness), with things that would never happen to a character in a Robert Asprin book of the same era - indicative of the earlier and more challenging books that Hawke wrote before submitting to producing long-form series work to appeal to publishers' bottom lines and less discerning readers. Enjoyable, with surprises, although the ending seems rushed and sets up later books (n [...]

    2. I really enjoyed this series a lot. Very hilarious and fun. I forget when I read it exactly, but I think it was an easier read.

    3. The reading date listed above is a bit of a lie. I first read this series of books when I was in Jr. high. They were fun, fast-paced, had just a bit of sex, and contained a completely new idea for the future of our society.They still are.However, time brings maturity which brings, hopefully, a bit of necessary critical faculty. Meaning, these are not the best written books I have ever read. There are info-dumps, overly long explanations of mundane events, chapter long recaps of the previous book [...]

    4. [Update 3/8/16: Another reading funklots of work reading, plus two monster books in progress (The Complete Sherlock Holmes, and Lisa Randall's Warped Passages), as well as a big ADD Tom Peters work Re-Imagine, recovering from a trip to ItalyI look to old standbys like this to break it. Yes, even more dated. But yes, still quite fun. Enough that I'll keep going, again.]As I read and re-read traditional science fiction lately, I find that many of the classic authors don't grab me like when I was a [...]

    5. Simon Hawke uses a lot of tropes that are common in movies and on television. I see a lot of cliche characters, but he has fun with them. He is having fun with the story, and I am right there with him. This story reads fast and is very entertaining. Wyrdrune, Kira, Modred, and Merlin have a special chemistry when they are together in Hawke's world. Although it seems there is no interest in reviving this series, republishing it, or creating electronic books, I personally think that this and the r [...]

    6. This, despite my learning about a prequel being written, the first in Simon Hawke's "Wizard" series. It along with most of the rest of the books had come to be in a big lot (boxes, and boxes) of fantasy and science fiction given to me by a friend of my parent's who was unloading most of his books. It provided most of my pleasure reading for the first two-three years of high school.Thinking back on it, I suppose there wasn't much original about the series but I liked the humor and the mixing of m [...]

    7. This was one of the first series I ever read that I suppose you could not classify as "urban fantasy" though there were no werewolves or vampires in it. The premise is that Merlin returns to a world that has passed him by and become, well, our world. Technology and civilization have mostly replaced mysticism and the fantastic, and Merlin decides to return magic to the world, to give it back what it once had. Or something.Anyway, the series is fun, light (with dark undertones), and I blew through [...]

    8. I was first introduced to Hawke with the incomparable sorcerer series, and while none of the other material of his I've read has topped that, most of it has been pretty good. I am struggling with this one, though.The idea is quite a novel one and the characters and setting work well, but something didn't quite grip me. I found myself reading and drifting, coming back to it then, before I quite realised, the story was all over and everything had happened.Still there's plenty of leeway for a seque [...]

    9. This book was amazing. There were parts that i should have seen coming but i didnt and i would frequently just gasp loudly in the middle of silent reading in school and shout "Oh my god! I cannot BELIEVE that just happened!!!" and then i would get in trouble (i know, i know, i get in trouble for being enthusiastic about a book at school. my school is retarted) but i highly recommend this book for anyone who likes wizards and magic and a good book.

    10. I found the world to be fascinating because of the use of magic as a power source for technology. It also involves some Arthurian legend (I used to be very fascinated Camelot). Overall I found the book a short read and fun, but nothing amazing. The characters were likable, and the story was good but brief.

    11. I have read this book 5 or 6 times it is one of my favorate brain candy type books. It is an Arthurian type book that has Merlin and Modred and Morgan LeFay and it takes place in the 23rd centary so it is just different. It is the first in a series of books.

    12. No politics. Very little social commentary. Just a good fun story.

    14. Wyrdrune and Kira meet at an auction while both are trying to steal the mysterious and powerful Euphrates rune stones. The stones bind them together and set them on an adventure to save the world.

    15. For a futuristic comedy it wasn't very creative.

    16. A fun read that had lots of action and tips it's hat to legends of old. It has a tongue in cheek type of humor that I find really appealing. I really enjoyed it.

    17. It's not my favorite Simon Hawke series, and the writing isn't perfect, but it's still plenty entertaining.
