Another outstanding mission full of futuristic notions, time travel, and of course D&D! Mark Lawrence has not disappointed in his second book Limited Wish. Although life has changed somewhat for Nick, he is still a teenage boy just trying to get through life on a day to day basis. His circle of friends rally close and help him as best they can but things continue to get stranger and much more complicated.
As Nick soon realises, once time has been changed there is bound to be a reaction to this action eventually. There was no way this was going to be an easy happily ever after story. In fact it turns out that the future may entail a little love and child if the timeline Nick sees comes together. However, when Demus suddenly arrives yet again although somewhat different from the man he had met 6 months earlier it becomes even more complex as the is now a paradoxical timeline that no one had foreseen happen at all. At least not that Nick realises anyway. How could he? It hasn’t happened to him yet!
I have to admit I found the confusion and humour of Nicks story thoroughly enjoyable. It is always nice to read something as crazy as time travel when it has the humour and imagination of Mark Lawrence to walk things along. I don’t want to give away too much of the storyline as I honestly found this to be an enjoyable read and I think there will be a lot of readers that will enjoy this.
Overall I feel that Limited Wish, as well as its predecessor One Word Kill are well worth the read. Who knew D&D could change they way the future can be enacted or at least influence it? I recommend this novel to anyone young adult onward. I also give a rating of 10/10 stars
