This is a great book, i have read all the mancer books and they are fantasticly great. If you love fantasy you will love all of Don Callander's books. This one is by far the best mancer book i have read(except geomancer, because i have not read it yet. It is out of print). I hope you enjoy this book and all the others by Don Callander.

Number 2 in the 'mancer series.Aquamancer intro- duces new characters, along with the our original friends. Callander does an excellent job with his characters and handles his plots with humor and fun. You will find yourself searching for all the books in this series. Easy reading and relaxing!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed Pyromancer and I did enjoy this title Aquamancer. What I find dissapointing about these two is there seems to be no significance to a Pyromancer or Aquamancer. In other words, the main Pyromancer of the first book does just about every thing from creating a tent out of a handkerchief, to breathing underwater. What that has to do with Pyromancy, I don't know.

This title, Aquamancer continues with the adventures of the Pyromancer. He barely encounters an Aquamancer until later in the book. Why call it Aquamancer if the main story revolves around the Pyromancer? The Aquamancer mostly flies throughout the book...which seems to be more appropriate for an Aeromancer, no? In my opinion, they were fun reads. But I would have preferred the titles to be less specific, e.g. "Adventures of a Young Wizard." Because, I was expecting the Pyromancer to throw fire-balls and the Aquamancer to walk on water, or something to that effect, yet neither emphasized their chosen magical professions. They are both stories about generic wizards, in my opinion.

Douglas Brightglade is sent on a journeying as part of his training to become a master Pyromancer. He is expected to handle a difficult task without the aid of anyone senior to him, and the task he has been instructed to solve involves going to unknown lands to investigated an evil coven of black witches.

This is a wonderfully imaginative novel with some really fantastic characters. Douglas is a fine journeyman Pyromancer, eager to prove himself. I was immediately caught up in the story and I enjoyed the excitement as well as the humor. When it appears that Douglas has been captured by the evil coven, his fiancée, Myrn Manstar, an apprentice Aquamancer, sets out to help him. There is also a host of other wonderful supporting characters, such as Douglas’s familiar, a smart sea otter named Marbleheart. Another of my favorites is the Blue Teakettle, who always knows when a visitor will be arriving, and who sends meals magically all the way from Wizards’ High.

This is the second novel in the ‘Mancer Series, but it can be enjoyed all by itself. The prologue has a summary of the first novel so that the reader is fully caught up right from the start. I love the variety of characters which populate this novel. Of course there are wizards, faeries, dwarfs, sprites, and sea creatures. But there are also razors which strop themselves and then shave the wizard after the shaving brush has jumped “gleefully into Mug and whipped up a froth of fragrant lather.”

Douglas’s travels and adventures are exciting, filled with action, and Douglas certainly has to think fast and act with courage and daring if he is going to save Old Kingdom from the havoc and destruction which the Coven of Black Witches is wrecking.

This is the second in a series. It has slightly different and overlapping characters from the first, Pyromancer, but is just as entertaining. It's difficult being serious and humorous at the same time but somehow this book achieves it. I have a short list of books that I re-read over the years, and this is on the list.
