This week for Bookish Wednesday I’m back with a sequel to a book I covered over a year ago. It’s Accidental Warrior, Accidental Traveler Book 02, by Jamie and C.J. Davis!

Plot: The plot is okay, but honestly I was disappointed that it took the story where it did. Honestly I didn’t really care for Hal’s annoying antics as much as I had found them endearing in the previous book. The fact that he continued to rely on his Luck stat as much as he did just seemed foolhardy and a tool for blatant Deux Ex Machina whenever the authors felt like it. That said it’s not a completely terrible book, but the story is really not that amazing compared to other stories I’ve read.

Characters:  Honestly I can’t say I enjoyed Hal nearly in this second book as this the first. I could deal with the wise ass comments and the foolhardy nature he displayed since he was a gentleman rogue in the first book, in this book where he is supposed to be a warrior it just makes him look like a tool. Kay isn’t much better, running off and getting captured, again, in a really stupid manner. Honestly I didn’t enjoy the cast of characters in this book.

Overall: An okay sequel, if incredibly predictable and stereotypical.
