All For Love

How far would you go to prove your worth? In "The Oathbound Wizard", Stasheff's second book in the Wizard in Rhyme series, Matthew Mantrell (Lord High Wizard of Merovence) swears that he is will conquer the kingdom of Ibile to prove that he is worthy to marry his true love- Alisande the queen of Merovence. This is the second book that I've read by Christopher Stasheff; and I have to say, I'm hooked. I enjoy his writing style, and the way he integrates the modern (Matt Mantrell) with the ancient. Fantasy has always been one of my favorite genres; and Stasheff brings it to a new level. I would strongly recomend this book to anyone who has read "Her Majesty's Wizard"; the prequel to "The Oathbound Wizard". If you haven't read "Her Magesty's Wizard", you may still enjoy it; but some of the references will not make sense to you.


All word must be carefully choosen and not said in haste. If not you end up as Matt in"The Oathbound Wizard". He foolishly swears that he will concure a Kingdom to marry his love. He then is trapped into a dangerous quest involing enemys and allies, sea people and Dragogliphs. Stashelf will truly enrtance any bibliophile or fantasy lover. This adventuare will stun and amze all. My praise to Stasheff!

Fantastic ,the best book I've read in ages!

The Oathbound Wizard is about a boy called Mathew that has travelled through dimensions and has ended up as the Lord Wizard in a country called Merovence.In this world thigs you say are taken more literally than here and Matt swears that he will overthrough the evil Wizard Lord of Ibile.Matt goes into Ibile and defeats the evil Lord (picking up loads of friends on the way) and marries Queen Alisande of Merovence.

A magic world where a poetry makes magic.

This is the book that got me into reading even though I hated it so much. A very exciting, interesting and romantic book. This book can not simply be described. One would have to read it and see for himself. I don't really like poetry but in this book , it is a way of making magic that is far beyond explainable. The only books I ever read were books for school and I read them because I had to. This book made wanna read it just to see what happened next. This is truly the best book I have ever read.

Theology meets fantasy - and fun

Just when you think you've had enough of these "average modern-day Joe goes back to medieval alternate universe and saves the world," you meet Matt, who somehow manages to be both human and heroic. Goes into even more debate than the original about the role of God, Christianity, and the essence of good and Evil. Lots of unusual characters and amusing sideplots that weave well into the whole. A very satisfying conclusion to the story of Matt; but be sure to read the other books in this series about Matt's friend Saul.
