Description

The adventures of an American hacker in Medieval England continue as Martin Banks takes his next step on the journey toward mastering his reality-altering powers and fulfilling his destiny.

A month has passed since Martin helped to defeat the evil programmer Jimmy, and things couldn’t be going better. Except for his love life, that is. Feeling distant and lost, Gwen has journeyed to Atlantis, a tolerant and benevolent kingdom governed by the Sorceresses, and a place known to be a safe haven to all female time-travelers.

Thankfully, Martin and Philip are invited to a summit in Atlantis for all of the leaders of the time-traveler colonies, and now Martin thinks this will be a chance to try again with Gwen. Of course, this is Martin Banks we’re talking about, so murder, mystery, and high intrigue all get in the way of a guy who just wants one more shot to get the girl.

The follow-up to the hilarious Off to Be the Wizard, Scott Meyer’s Spell or High Water proves that no matter what powers you have over time and space, you can’t control rotten luck.

Narrator!

Luke Daniels is prolly one of the best voice actors I have heard. His voices make this series even better than it already is.

SQUID PRO QUO

KILL ABILITY
IF I SAY IT, AND YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN, THAN IT'S A WORD
In the introduction, we are told that this is to be considered funny and light hearted and not to be taken serious. Which I believe is a great intro to this series. If your looking for some serious Science Fiction or Fantasy, for something dark or mentally challenging, than your in the wrong place. This is the second book in the series and you will be lost if you do not start with the first most excellent book (OFF TO BE THE WIZARD).

SMART PEOPLE DO STUPID THINGS
While I did not enjoy this as well as the first book, (which is not unusual for any series), I still enjoyed it and it was well worth my credit. In places it is extremely funny. Most of the book takes place in Atlantis, which is a pretty cool place to begin with, especially since it is a society run by women. The male attendants are especially funny. I will say that they stayed in Atlantis too long and the whole plot there started to wear thin. That is after several very funny chapters, though. The whole thing with the Brits also got a little old.

ARGUING WITH A DUMB PERSON NEVER WORKS
The side story involving an exiled magician and the FBI agents, turned out to be some of the funniest stuff in the book. Agent Miller is hilarious. I already have book three in my library and I am looking forward to listening to it.

Luke Daniels does a fantastic job. He makes the listening of this ten times better than the reading of this.

Martin and Philip's Atlantis Adventure

Would you listen to Spell or High Water again? Why?

Yes, but I'll give it a few. Got to keep the story fresh. This is an easy listen with a funny storyline and likeable characters.

What did you like best about this story?

The whole Atlantis thing - 100:1 male to female ratio and the whole women wear the pants scene while the guys are fired up to clean and get their hair done. Different take on roles makes the story funny in a kooky way.

What does Luke Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Luke Daniels is a flat out pro. He made this book flow. I bought Spell or High Water this morning and just finished it - almost 11 hours of audiobook and I feel refreshed. The author made the right choice in hooking up with Luke Daniels.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Is Martin up to the challenge of winning Gwen's heart? Stay tuned to see what gets stuck in Martin's mouth - Gwen's tongue or his foot!

Any additional comments?

Get this book. The price is right, Luke Daniels comes up strong and Philip wakes up next to an "untraditional" vixen and doesn't even think about pulling a coyote.

So So.... Disappointed

Honestly the book was so boring. The journey to Atlantis was so so and along with the uninteresting mystery make the book very boring. Martin became secondary in this book or should I say no focus on who was the main character or who story was being told. It just so random. The first book have a dumb smart but also funny story, but this have a dumb not smart and not very funny story. Even Roy the character who appear in the beginning for Martin to train was irrelevant to the story. Disappointed!!!

very dull story

This is the second book of the series. The first one was okay, the main idea was neat, although the characters were not too complicated.

This book continues just after the ending of the second book. Unfortunately, both the complexity and the logic of story are very poor. The characters have an identically childish behavior; most of the main characters mostly react to any situation with adolescent rage. The character motivation behind the plot is like that of a 5 year old child.

In my opinion, the first installment was worth too read or listen to, but this second one was quite painful to finish.

Hilarious even more than the first

Could not stop listening to this book. The story is pretty funny even though it a bit expected but the arguments that the characters made and the reasoning is hilarious.

ENTERTAINING and SMART!

I can't rave enough about how much I enjoyed this audiobook and the first one in the series - Off to Be the Wizard. It's smart, funny, clever, and stimulating without being the least bit depressing or dour. I realize that some people are convinced that quality in writing can only be attained with deep, dark, soul clenching grit and human misery, but they're wrong. There is a huge value to something that engages your mind, AND makes you smile. On top of that, the narration is brilliant and adds so much color and humor it ought to be classified in its own category. Luke Daniels is an elite level audiobook narrator. I just bought book 3, and will eventually purchase Meyer's latest book too.

Must Buy!

Any additional comments?

Author takes a very unrealistic idea and creates a world based on it and does a very good job at it.

I like that the author did not go in to the weeds as to the hows and whys of the world as that would have ruined the story with unneeded details

Characters grow and develop from book to book and each book it still a complete story al by itself with just enough flashbacks to refresh your memory

A must read!

Excellent all the way around. Great for all ages. And it doesn't give me nightmares like the majority of books put out these days with violence, gore, and sex. This is exciting, entertaining, funny, and intellectual.

Wonderful book!

I loved the 2nd book. The geeky comedy is priceless. Moving into the third and I hope one day a 4th is released.

Much Ado about Nothing

This story has an annoying habit of not paying off the things it had planted. At least not in this book. Sooo much happens in this book that clearly is supposed to set up sone conflict, and then nothing happens or gets resolved in an anticlimactic manner.
Funnily enough, there's a lot of visual spectacle described - but that doesn't help me much in an audiobook. It isn't a bad audiobook but it ignores a lot of interesting ideas and focuses on a rather dull romance and a weak mystery. It took me a while to finish it, but if you are just looking for something to pass the time, it is alright.
