A short story about a dynamic American businessman who is visiting his properties in Scotland when he is told by a mysterious lake monster that he and only he was born with the powers necessary to free the world from the terrors of the Magic Ministry.
Guaranteed to be an eye-opener for people who have heard only one side of the story.
Sometimes a lake monster can know far more than you might have guessed, but only time will tell if that monster will share what they know.
Drum, the hero of this tale, was exactly what I expected him to be. It was amusing to see how he described everything and everyone around him. His personality was so strong and unique that I got to know him well pretty early on in the plot. In fact, I knew precisely what he was all about within a paragraph or two. I also thought that this character matched the person he was based on perfectly.
This story spent a lot of time focusing on the supporting characters instead of on the main ones. As much as I enjoyed reading about them, I would have preferred to get to know the main characters better than I did. There was a lot of stuff about them that was only mentioned briefly because of how much effort the narrator put into describing everyone else around them instead.
The dialogue was handled nicely. I liked watching the various characters talk to each other because of how many humorous references to other things they slipped into their conversations. Picking up on all of the clues became a game that I played in my mind as I read. It was rewarding to spot them as early as possible. This is the kind of tongue-in-cheek storytelling that I find entertaining.
I’d recommend Make Wizardry Great Again to anyone who is in the mood for something funny.
