Plot summary by Mevima: "I'm not quite sure. It's about wizards."
The hook: "I buy books at the secondhand store, so I don't care what they're about as long as they're fantasy. I recognized the illustrator [of the cover] from other books that were generally good. Turns out it's the third in a series that I haven't read. That’s what happens when you pick up books at the secondhand store."
Critique: "It's actually not very good."
Afterward: "I've got another book in my backpack in case I give up on this, but I think I can finish this. I have to finish all the books in my library."
