Martin Banks is just a normal guy who has made an abnormal discovery: he can manipulate reality, thanks to reality being nothing more than a computer program. With every use of this ability, Martin finds himself sinking deeper and deeper into trouble until he’s forced to travel back in time to the Middle Ages and pose as a wizard…and then the trouble really starts.



  • This was definitely the weakest installment in the Magic 2.0 series so far. I was initially intrigued by the concept of delving deeper into the world, but by the second half, I had lost all hope and realized that it was simply a disappointing narrative that undermined the characters, excessively exaggerated situations, and occasionally displayed sexist undertones. On the bright side, the performance, as usual, was outstanding.
  • I absolutely adore these books, let me start by saying that. They all have their own unique greatness. Books 1 and 2 were exceptionally well-executed, and book 3 cleverly introduced new and old characters into the mix. Book 4 stood out from the rest, but book 5 does connect back to it. Throughout the entire book, there's a prevailing sense of anger and shouting amongst the friends, as if they despise each other. I'm starting to grow weary of Gwen constantly beating up Martin, so to speak. I don't really understand what he sees in her! The British elements became even more absurd and convoluted, and I found myself wondering when it would all come to an end. Some parts of the story seemed unnecessary and dragged on. With that being said, the last 5/6 chapters were hilarious and had a touch of mystical charm reminiscent of the earlier books. I thoroughly enjoyed that, and I'm excited for the next set of books based on the ending, although I did see the plot twist coming (still a good twist). There are moments in the story that will make you burst out laughing, as well as some absurd moments that are quintessentially Magic 2.0. The references to modern-day stuff may have gone a bit overboard in some places, but that's not a big deal! As always, Luke does an incredible job with the storytelling and brings the characters to life. He's 50% of the reason I keep coming back. Scott has once again crafted a fun adventure for the series, and I'm still a devoted fan, eagerly awaiting the next installment. For me, this book had a lot riding on it after the last one, and at the moment, I feel like it's a success... just barely. My advice is, if you have a credit and you're a fan of the series, it won't feel like a waste to use it on this book. It's still entertaining and a part of the series, offering another wild adventure that spirals out of control, and that's fantastic. Similar to my thoughts on the previous book, I'm not sure if I would pay full price for this one.
