      Does the world need another Sandman’isk spinoff comic? I guess the jury's still out on that but I enjoyed this book quite a bit more than I thought I would although the main guy Timmy Hunter is an extremely whiny douche who repeatedly talks to himself. I’ll give the next volume a shot to see if Timmy gets a few more redeeming qualities or gets horrible disfigured.

      A mere five issues into the monthly BOOKS OF MAGIC title, writer John Ney Rieber has already raised the stakes for our hero, 13-year-old magician-in-training, Tim Hunter. Book Two of the trade paperback series, “Summonings”, opens with the story “The Hidden School”, in which we see a grown-up Tim Hunter in the future. He’s very powerful, but very lonely, and we learn he has, over time, bargained away his childhood memories a piece at a time until he’s left an empty shell with no chil [...]

      The art is gorgeous, but in terms of story I'm so much more interested in the side characters than in Tim; Khara and her tormented angel lover, Marya trying to break up with stalkery Daniel, etc.I know this is trying to capture the drama and contradictions of adolescence, but it's difficult for me to have feelings one way or the other about Tim because he's amazingly important and has multiple powerful threats trying to either manipulate or destroy him, BUT he's a narcissistic jerk who thinks he [...]

      "The Books of Magic: Summonings, Book 2" follows the story of Tim Hunter, a teenager who is destined to become the world's greatest magician. Tim must contend with a heartless sorcerer, tea in hell, a murderous Victorian cyborg, a whirlwind family reunion with an insanely jealous Faerie Queen and a first date. Young Tim Hunter is reminded of an imaginary friend he had as a child who was killed by someone or something. In an investigation into the imaginary friend's death he enters a world where [...]

      Timothy Hunter is a 13-year-old boy with the possibility of becoming the world’s greatest magician–as long as he can survive his first date. Well, that and his alcoholic, guilt-ridden father. Well, not really father, kind of like a foster father, because his real father was Tam Lin (of the legend), and his mother is the Faerie Queen. Not to mention his future self, and a bunch of demons from hell that look suspiciously like Barney the Dinosaur. Confused yet? As the classic TV show Soap used [...]

      Despite its tendency to go in all directions to the risk of mayhem, The Books of Magic vol. 2: Summonings is a good and joyous mayhem, mixing imaginary friends from Tim's childhood now brought to life, characters from the Industrial Revolution seemingly out of a Dickens novel, other characters from the Free Country reminiscent of the Lost Boys from Peter Pan, and, of course, the fey folk. All these disparate elements are glued together by the central figure of Tim Hunter whose magical potential [...]

      This continues to be very confusing, as the TPB collects stories that are apparently out of order from the comic run?I dunno, I'm starting to feel like I need to find some sort of reading guide to figure out what order to read all this stuff in.Elements keep appearing as if from nowhere, then getting dropped. Which is disappointing, I'd read one of the much later TPBs from the library and really loved it a lot, so I was very excited to read it from the beginning. But so far? Bit of a disappointm [...]

      I'm so lost. The first volume felt incomplete and this one just added more questions instead of answering any of themA: Just did some research and I now see that Volume 1 is not the first volume in this series. The first volume is simply titled "The Books of Magic" and explains everything having to do with Tim. Until I get and read the proper first volume, this review and the one for "The Books of Magic: Bindings" are null and void =)7/14/13 Much better the second time around.

      Lo tengo en la edición de cuatro tomos de Norma: Los Libros de la Magia: Convocaciones 1 al 4 (Colección Vertigo #38, 41, 46 y 50). Por ahora no creo que la suba para no partir el libro en cuatro, pero marco la edición española a tomo completo por aproximación. Seguro me los lea de uno después de releer el tomo de Gaiman.

      Tim Hunter brings his past dreams to life and they help him stay alive as various demons attack him in his search for self.Not my usual fare, but a fairly quick read as I attempt to empty the boxes of books I acquired at the Friends of the Library book sale.

      It is part Oliver Twist, part Midsummer's Night Dream, part Harry Potter, part spinoff of Neil Gaiman's BoM, and it pretty much recommences Rieber's The Book of Faerie.

      What I found most fascinating about this book is despite not being written by Gaiman, it felt very much like something he would do. I guess one could say there is such a thing as a 'Gaiman style.'

      This is just a good fun read in an interesting series.

      I like that you don't really need to read these in order

      This is a nice fat story arc that finds Tim increasingly embroiled in magical doings. Curiously, the Tim of the future is also involved in the present, but this Tim has been lead astray by a demon.

      Vast improvement over the first volume, Rieber is getting in depth and up to par with Sandman, not quite, but just as enjoyable.

      Another fairly solid entry in this series. I like the bits with Auberon and the chimneysweep stuff, but sometimes Tim is a bit hard to deal with.
