    Good book. -1 star because it felt like there was next to no plot progression.

    I really enjoyed THE (SORT-OF) DARK MAGE so I was eager to tear into this one. I'm going to not give as long a review as usual because there's not really all that much to say. The book is mostly very funny but it spends a long time repeating many of the jokes which were done in the first book and some of which had already started to wear out their welcome. There's also some DREADFULLY unfunny jokes which keep going and going. I also note this book seems to be about half the size of the previous one. That's not, necessarily, a problem but it's surprising and the progression of the plot is near zero.The premise is (sort of) Dark Mage Waldo Corpselover a.k.a Waldo Rabbit and his (sort of) wife, Alice the Succubus, are looking for a third monster to complete the first part of Waldo's quest. The previous book ended with them picking up a homosexual BDSM-loving ogre named Grok. Now, I can imagine a story where there's a homosexual BDSM-loving ogre that's an interesting character but Grok isn't he. Grok is a walking stereotype, albeit one 8ft tall and superhuman, which exists to make the prickly conservative Alice uncomfortable with all of his open homosexuality and kink. Did I mention he becomes a crossdresser too (despite none of those things necessarily having anything to do with each other)? None of which is funny and keeps going and going like the Energizer bunny. The fact Waldo doesn't see anything wrong with either is about the only redeeming quality.Waldo, Alice, and Grok head to a nearby city where monsters are not tolerated despite engaging in a brisk slave trade using goblins. Alice has a connection to the Duke's son and has recently discovered she has the ability to charm heterosexual men, an ability she loathes but Waldo finds staggeringly effective possibilities in. Unfortunately, they're being stalked by Waldo's archlich father who is entirely capable of raising an army to destroy cities (and has begun doing so). They're also being stalked by a White Mage but that's really a minor problem by comparison.The frustrating thing about this book is almost nothing of consequence happens. Yeah, they get into some funny situations but the book begins and ends with Waldo's story exactly where it was. They've managed to help wreck a city, killed a bunch of Thieves Guild members, and permanently tar the reputation of White Mages everywhere (not that they needed help) but the story feels largely insubstantial. Oddly, my favorite part of the story is the Lilith sections as we watch her in a much more serious "Game of Thrones"-esque plot against a rival house that ends on a sour sad note at odds with the rest of the series.I'm still going to read the next novel in the series but this book feels like it relied on some outdated, verging on offensive humor and didn't work for me. About the only reason it's still getting a positive rating is I really do love the characters and enjoy the amount of taking the **** out of popular fantasy tropes which made the first book so enjoyable. I will, however, say I could read an entire book about Lilith.5/10

    I thought book one was off the hook. Book 2 is even crazier. Gotta take a break and then I'm going to see if I can finish book 3........READ THIS SERIES.

    After listening to this book I have one question.... where's the story I just paid for?No I'm serious where is the story? nothing happens in this book. In book one we had :-1. All main characters introduced and their backstory explained.2. All side and background characters that will be playing a part in the shadows also introduced and their personality/motives well explained3. The three quests that Waldo will have to complete and why they are so impressive4. one of the quests is getting 3 familiars, two acquired one remaining.5. the main AND side antagonists introduced and all personalities and motives explained.What did we get in this book1. 2. 3. 4.5. ok he got a slave I guess....Seriously not only is there ZERO progression in this book, it's an entire book(let) that is nothing but prat falls. I Thought they were out of character in book one and only there for cartoonish humor, thing is book 1 was interesting with alot of progression, this one was just pratfall after pratfall, all forceful! I mean Waldo (and yes the writer finally couldn't help himself and used the where's waldo joke... because we're five years old, all of us!) had 7 siblings some of which were female AND a mother, he grew up surrounded by females be it family members or slave girls, even men who've never actually talked to a girl before know better then to comment on her weight or her thighs. The interactions were so forceful they hurt and killed the humor for me.Also this book is short, just a bit more then half of book one. Save your money and just stick to book one, this one was rushed out and it shows... shame because Nelson Chereta's has shown us he could do better, alot better.

    It doesn't matter if we're talking about the second movie in a series or a continuation of a well-written piece of literature. Sequels are a difficult thing to manage for both authors and readers, for any kind of audience really. Sometimes we consumers want to experience the same again, other times we want something new and exciting. It's difficult for an author to get that right, to predict his audience.In the case of the Waldo Rabbit series, I feel that the author was just a bit too lazy with this second book. In the first part, The (sort of) Dark Mage, Nelson Chereta introduced us to a lovable character who went from one humorous situation to another and the wide cast of secondary characters complimented everything perfectly.Now in this second book, we of course get to see Waldo again and nothing seems to have changed. This book picks up right where the first one left off and, having read it to the end, it doesn't really provide much of an ending either. It was just some more pages and chapters about Waldo's (mis)adventures in trying to complete his quest, piece by toilsome piece. The author repeats the same jokes, inserts a few familiar (and very much unoriginal) sketch comedy scenes and expects his readers to find it just as funny as before. Well, I'm sorry, but I'm of the opinion that a joke becomes stale if you tell it long enough and that's what happened in this book.Since there is hardly any character progression - Waldo is as much a bumbling fool as he had been before he left the castle he grew up in and the side-stories of intrigue and murder weren't as interesting as in the first book - there is little I can do but voice my disappointment.It was good to see this story continued, but if we're being honest, this was an average continuation at best and fell way short of my expectations. I'm going to hold out for the third book, whenever that will come out, but I am only willing to put up with so much. Should the next book be a carbon copy of this one, it will have been the last I am willing to read of this series.

    Quite the Quest!The Waldo Rabbit series takes on a seemingly impossible quest with a wonderful mix of humor and horror, with sex and romance thrown in for seasoning. Fast paced and well written, I highly recommend this series, looking forward to the next book.

    Did not finish...yet. Book 2 has all the same stuff, humour and stupidity. But a bit too rigid. I'm not a person that's really into character development or look for it. But some books obviously need them. For example, Waldo Rabbit. It's a story where a kid starts out on his quest to become a man (essentially). He's suppose to grow up and learn about how the world works, not his sheltered life. In Book 1, it's fine that he's stupid, stubborn and have weird ideas. At the end of Book 1, he grew some. But in Book 2, all of it disappeared for stupid not-so-comedic humour. For example, in Book 1, Waldo said to himself that he loves Alice, similar yet different from his mother and sister. Yet, in Book 2, he's back with his bickering about turning his lover into a servant. He goes on and on about tending to an Ogre, like tending to Alice. Waldo's "personality" or "character" is getting really ridiculous. In Book 1, you can sort of blame it on the fact that he's naive and new to the world. But in Book 2, he has all the experiences from Book 1, so he should change a bit. But nope, he's literally worse than before. Heck, even his character makes no sense if you think about it deeply. You're born and raised by a dark mage or necromancer. You're supposed to be from an evil empire with slaves and killing as you wish. But you're still "normal" just ruthless and "evil". Waldo isn't even that or pretending to be. He's just weird and delusional. His mother and all the other mages aren't like that. They have backstabbing and killing each other lives with slaves but it's still in the realm of "normal". All of Waldo's customs and cultures seemed forced and thrown out just for humour.Heck, Waldo's White Mage disguise disappeared thanks to the author's need for humour. The author needed Waldo to speak some of his non-sense so the White Mage disguise was thrown out for a while. Alice got more submissive and "servant" like. She was much stronger in personality in Book 1. Their bickering with her winning was really fun to read. And now, she is still strong but more servant-like to Waldo's stupidity that the author insist on keeping. Waldo ends up being on top. There are also lame references or jokes. Such as, "Gronk Smash" reference to "Hulk Smash".I really don't get "great monsters", why are Ogres, who can be killed not so hard, be categorized with dragons. Book 2 literally said it, city guards can simply walk up and kill an Ogre while strong dark mages are scared of Dragons and dare not to go near. Clearly, Ogres and Dragons shouldn't be in the same category. It gets really stupid and lame with Waldo's tradition. The summer solstice is dancing naked around a fire. Seriously? Did the dark mages and white mages and the rest of the world split apart during the cavemen times? Why else would they be dancing naked? That's not even evil or dark. It's not related. It's just barbaric and cavemen-like.Couldn't stand it after 1 hour and 47 minutes.

    Good readAnother solid read, didn't want to put the book down. Humor still works pretty well in this installment. Looking forward to reading how the story unfolds in the next book.

    Nicht ganz so lustig wie der 1. Band, aber ist der 2. Band der Rabbit-Reihe dennoch wieder ein Heidenspaß zu lesen. Nachdem sich Waldo den furchterregenden Namen Rabbit zugelegt hat und mit Monster-Alice unerwartet an eine Ehefrau gekommen ist, hat es der junge dunkle Magier geschafft, sein erforderliches 2. großes Monster zu finden. Dieses ist allerdings ebenfalls anders als erwartet und schon bald fährt Alice ihre Krallen aus, um ihren unerwarteten Nebenbuhler in Waldos Gunst in die Schranken zu weisen - einfach lustig. Dafür dass sich Waldo für einen schrecklichen und leider etwas inkompetenten schwarzen Magier hält, ist er ein doch sehr liebenswerter Charakter, der schwer unter Alice' Pantoffel steht. Was Waldos Queste betrifft, geht es im 2. Band eher langsam voran. Das gesuchte 3. große Monster ist nicht in Sicht. Dafür macht nicht nur sein kannibalistischer Großvater Jagd auf Waldo, sondern auch eine weiße Magierin, nachdem Waldo sich diese mit einem Liebestrank zur Feindin gemacht hat. Und auch zu Hause bei Waldos Mutter bahnen sich Kompliaktionen für ihn an, denn seine Mutter hat bereits eine neue Ehefrau für ihn ausgewählt ...Ich bin schon sehr gespannt, wie es mit Waldo, Alice und seiner Queste weitergeht. Verdammt, wo bleibt Band 3???

    This book was a bit of a letdown. While still fun, humorous and a decent read, it really didn't stand up to the quality of the first novel. My main issue is the lack of overall progression. Whether in terms of character growth, relationships evolving, or simply progressing the story, I felt it was all lacking here. None of the characters are changed by their adventures. Though lots happen in this book in terms of action and adventure, the story ends pretty much where it started. Basically, it was a fun ride that went nowhere. If the author writes a third in the series then I very much hope to see Waldo start to grow as a character. His naive behaviour in his relationship with Alice was fun in the first book but has become repetitive and annoying in this one. I would also like to have seen his powers and competence progress a little more as it did when he first left Alteroth and started doing magic like a White mage instead of a Black mage. I would also like to see his quest and the story arcs for the other characters progress as well. Overall this is an interesting read if little else, just a bit disappointing. There's still potential for this series and I keep my fingers crossed that it can pick up again in the next novel.

    Good second part of the Waldo Rabbit book 1. I enjoyed the continuing story. More is revealed of the plans within plans and general deceit. I was disappointed that the story wasn't advanced further in this book. I guess that's a sign of a good book. Only downfall is I wish the book were a bit longer. Either more details on the plot advancement or if the plot were advanced further.Sort and simple bottom line: Worth the read. If you like contemporary fantasy that is light hearted and not the colossal mind maze of Tolkien or Martin, this is what you should be reading.

    Just like the first one. Not very well written, a lot of formatting errors in the kindle version, but somehow it's a quick fun read. Books that make me laugh out loud always get credit for doing so. I don't know why, but I liked it. I will for sure read the third and hopefully final book of the series.

    Good sequelMuch like the first with a little more sex. Still like the characters and story. Can't wait to see where it goes. The only really annoying part is that the author desperately needs an editor. Spelling errors, missing or double words, partial sentences abound in this e-book!

    3,5 Sterne. Nicht mehr ganz so lustig und kurzweilig wie Teil 1. liegt hauptsächlich daran, dass die Geschichte nicht mehr so viel Tempo hat und einfach nicht so viel passiert. Den schwulen SM-Oger fand ich auch ein bisschen albern.

    Good story. DON'T BUY THE PAPERBACK. I know it's self published and I respect that, but the print was so small it's like trying to read your phone from twenty feet. And the pages weren't numbered, so god help you if you lost your place. But over all fun read and look forward to more.
