Still, I cannot, in good faith, recommend this to my female protagonist loving brethren, as there are still none to be found. Aug 21, Lisa Nocita rated it really liked it Shelves: young-adult. In book 2 of this series we find our young wizard in training acclimating quite well to his new found identity and studying in earnest to improve his talent and skill. Six months have passed and Alex has contented himself with a distance education course in wizardry from the esteemed Whalen Vankin.
Adventurers Wanted - M.L. Forman
Now 16, Alex is eager for another adventure. He soon finds himself joining up with his former adventure leader who is leading a rather personal quest to recover the long lost horn of Moran for his bel In book 2 of this series we find our young wizard in training acclimating quite well to his new found identity and studying in earnest to improve his talent and skill. He soon finds himself joining up with his former adventure leader who is leading a rather personal quest to recover the long lost horn of Moran for his beleaguered cousin, disputed King.
Many of the former adventurers join the new adventure along with a couple of new faces. Other adventurers make appearances and references to characters from the first book abound. The fantasy worlds are growing complex and I would personally find a map on the end papers helpful to track the places traveled.
Adventurers Wanted: Book 2, The Horn Of Moran!
I also may need to keep a list of names and identities for future reference if I am to keep reading. I liked the story equally as well as the first but have the same reservations too. Master Alex develops his wizarding talents with ease and aplomb. No task is too difficult, including taking on a horde of menacing goblins singlehandedly or evil incarnate.
And he has a very Polly Anna-ish kind of personality which is sweet and possibly heroic, but hard to completely accept and like. Even Harry Potter and Frodo had their dark moments of the soul which made them fallible and thus more "human" and, ultimately, heroic. I think there is something here but it hasn't quite developed its full potential yet. I think the author is still finding his voice. Sometimes he tells too much rather than shows and Alex's narrative voice changes when he passes from Clutter's bookshop into the fantasy worlds to a more stilted and archaic voice, very formal and a tad affected.
I am unclear what time period his modern non-wizard self lives in. Probably not However, as I said before, I think Forman will be one to one to watch. He has a rich imagination and with tighter plotting, richer rising action, and stronger character development, his books will be sure to please young fantasy readers.
Dec 17, Kelsey Pugh rated it it was amazing. I really like it is a good book. It is about a 15 year old kid named Alex, and he lives with is stepdad. He goes on adventures with other people. In this book he went on an adventure to find the Horn of Moran and he becomes a wizard. Feb 10, Samantha wickedshizuku Tolleson rated it liked it Recommends it for: 4th Grade and up.

Hoping that 16 year old Alex will eventually stop sniveling.
He seems overly humble and it seems like insincerity. I mean is this what I have to look forward to when my kid's go into the teenage years? The 'tween years' are pissing me off, and driving me I loved how many magical creatures were included in this installment. Much of the other characters are interesting, but the adventure has seemed a little too structured for my taste.
If this was a story written for Good If this was a story written for adults instead of children, I most likely would have given this five stars. Apr 13, Heather rated it really liked it Shelves: read-alouds , teen-lit-and-i-love-it , books-i-own. A lovely sequel to Slothbag's Gold. While at times it feels, again, like you've heard some of these plots before, it's still a fun read.
We meet some of the characters from the first book and are introduced to several new ones. We learn a bit more about the lands and peoples. I love Alex, the main character. He is kind, generous and always, always does what is right. Sometimes with a little help. This is a series I'd gladly hand to my boys to read or read out loud to them.
While there is action A lovely sequel to Slothbag's Gold. While there is action and violence, it's not graphic or scary. Sep 25, Johnny Bennett rated it really liked it. ML Forman has an interesting writing style. Horn of Moran carries on the adventure from Slathbog's Gold and leaves one wanting more. The characters continue to grow, though some will complain Alex is growing too fast, too strong.
A great teen adventure with nothing grotesque about it, unless you are opposed to conceptual magic. Jan 09, Mark Buxton rated it really liked it. My name is Sindar, and our group is lucky to have Alex along on this quest for the Horn of Moran. His wizarding skills have greatly improved since our first adventure, although he's asked me for help in controlling his emotions. We need to retrieve the horn before the Spring Festival and return it to Bregnest's cousin. The horn will cement his cousin's claim to the throne before war breaks out.
We know we'll need to pass through gates guarded by a sphinx and griffins and death awaits if we fail My name is Sindar, and our group is lucky to have Alex along on this quest for the Horn of Moran. We know we'll need to pass through gates guarded by a sphinx and griffins and death awaits if we fail their challenges.
Alex's mentor Whalen is writing fewer letters and seems to be letting him learn from his experiences. As an elf, my unique abilities will be an asset to the group, but Alex will be the key to our success. This series is a pleasant change from many adventure stories. It includes dwarfs, elves, goblins, dragons, and other familiar creatures.
Alex is the main character and is full of kindness and compassion for others. He maintains an air of humbleness even as his powers and abilities grow stronger. However, his emotions challenge his self-control, which is a potentially disastrous situation for a wizard. The plot includes action, fighting, and some killing.
It doesn't dwell on the fighting and death, and Alex always tries to find ways to avoid it. As with the first book, honor is a huge theme. Characters stick to their promises and display respect for their foes. A recurring event in each book finds Alex returning treasure bags to the heirs of deceased Adventurers. Even these exchanges display respectful negotiations that require the characters to avoid insulting high, or low, offers.
An evil Shadow is a constant threat that appears in each of Alex's adventures, and I assume it will again in the sequel. It has tested Alex's abilities to the max and has been the most challenging antagonist. The book doesn't acknowledge its existence in the story until it makes surprise appearances to jeopardize Alex's mission.
Overall, I'm really enjoying these adventures with tempered violence and recommend them to anyone loving medieval-type books. I suggest you read Slathbog's Gold first to fully appreciate the background story. May 13, Brian Layman rated it it was amazing Shelves: read Continuing in the same vein of the last book, this is a superb book for young tween readers.
Though very high in word count for other books for this age group, the story is involved and moves fairly quickly. It continues to entertain and I hope that the next book feels less like one dues ex machina after the next, but it may not as the target audience may just be younger than I expected out of this series. My main wish is that the magic had a more structured background. In this book at the last, Continuing in the same vein of the last book, this is a superb book for young tween readers.
In this book at the last, learning magic was just super simple and there was little noticed effort involved. We don't know what he can do and can't. I think the answer is he can do absolutely anything the author dreams up and needs at the moment. There are still some neat hints at a system involved toward the end and some rules even if our rare hero may end up defying all expected standards. My only other complaint is the hero's last name of Taylor or maybe it's Tailor. I kept being thrown off as the characters were talking to the wizard and then suddenly were talking to a Master Tailor.
Kinda funny, but I think I would have chosen a different name because of it, were I ever gifted with the talent to write as M. Forman has been. Sep 25, Callie S rated it really liked it Shelves: ya-lit This is the second book in the series known as "Adventurers Wanted".
The book starts once again with Alex Taylor preparing for a new adventure. His company consists of some old friends and a couple of new ones. Their goal is to find an ancient horn that will determine who the new king of Alusia will be. Along the way, they encounter a band of goblins, a corrupt leader, and a dark creature that Alex had encountered in the last adventure. Alex's magic and wisdom grows stronger as each day of his j This is the second book in the series known as "Adventurers Wanted".
Alex's magic and wisdom grows stronger as each day of his journey goes by.
I loved this book. It's really good for anyone is looking for something exciting and, well, adventurous. It was a little slow getting started for me, but after a little bit into it, I couldn't put it down. It has funny parts, but also some emotion to it as well. I'm really looking forward to reading the rest of the series. I think that this book would be enjoyable for boys, even if they don't care to read. It's fast-paced, exciting, and doesn't have long drawls of exposition without being confusing.
Aug 24, Tiffany rated it did not like it Shelves: children-s. The terrible continues unabated in this second book. They have a super urgent quest, but they spend two weeks partying at the start of it. They are almost never in real danger, and what little trials there are Alex is able to solve easily with his magic and his wits. He solves literally every problem in the book on his own, despite the lecture about teamwork he gets from his step dad at the start. Alex's magic is powerful and endless, and he always knows what to do in any situation despite being The terrible continues unabated in this second book.
Alex's magic is powerful and endless, and he always knows what to do in any situation despite being only half trained. There is exactly one named woman in the whole story. She is an adventurer yay! She doesn't get to be a hero. She's going to be a trophy, a conquest, who Alex will woo and protect, and she won't be awesome in her own right.
