Basic story. Bernie is a god on a planet of gods. Not all gods can create worlds, but all can own them. 'The Company' makes worlds for the buyer on demand. The buyer has the people of the world he owns grow crops that he collects and then sells in the world of the gods.
One planet is not producing like it should. Bernie is hired to troubleshoot the problem since he has just one a prestigious award which was last won years ago by his now absent father. Bernie is now a celebrity that he did not want to be. Dad returns, people swarm him and he has to focus on fixing a world.
How he goes about it is the big part of the story. Bernie's boss wants Bernie to blink the planet's population out of existence, but Bernie feels that each person there is important. Bernie wants to take time to fix it, but there is a mean person stopping the growing going on and the owner is losing money.
So how will it end. You will have to get the book, but in the end, it is a satisfying result.
This is one of the first young adult book that I have picked up that felt more like what I thought a YA book should be. The writing is fairly clear and there is no sexual innuendo much less sex in it (although there is a kiss or two). In other words, it is safe for all age groups to read.
I recommend it for any people who like the category it falls in. What category you ask? Good question, it has a little time travel, a little fantasy, a little coming of age, and I am sure some other areas as well. You might just like it.
I own a copy of this book that the author gave out as part of a promotion.
I was recently introduced to a young god named Bernie…he lives in Godtown and graduated from god school. Bernie started working at the Business and won a VERY prestigious award for creating the most godlike peoples…
Yes I said created…
It’s almost like they make art and it’s real. You can even eat the food; grown on a planet; inside a universe; made by a god at the business…Said universe sold to the local quid pepper vendor…Who will demand perfect production for the 1000 years on his warranty but something went horribly wrong!
And that is how Bernie met the wizards and you have to read the book to get insight for the how, when, where and so forth ways that Bernie, his girlfriend Suzy and friend Lennie help the local quid farmers. War and mayhem have been let loose and Bernie works tirelessly to save the quid farmers!
Along the way you will meet Shemal-Bernie’s boss who wants to kill off the Quid Farmers and start all over. You will meet Bernie’s Dad. I didn’t like him at all. You will meet Claudius a very huge ancient god (they don’t die you know and never stop growing!) You’ll also meet several cliquey clingy girls who decide to chase Bernie after he won the award. Suzy does not like this at all!
It’s a great book and so are the others Mr. Steve Lebel has shared with us. I was privileged to be a beta reader on this book; Bernie and the Wizards! The first draft was a good read…The final result is marvelous…treat yourself!
