Mistakes Were Made (A Pygmalion Fail Book 2) by Casey Matthews

Overall star rating --- 5

About the book:
Had Isaac known Rune was a real world populated by his fantasy illustrations come to life—or that he’d find himself stuck there—he’d have thought longer on the politics of Queen Eliandra. As it stands, the Queen would love nothing more than to jail him and enlist his powers against the vengeful wizard Dracon.

But first Isaac and the impetuous Queen, along with the mysterious samurai Ronin and aided by Isaac’s best friend Dak, must fight their way through the Palace of Ten Thousand Chambers, filled with traps and horrors designed by Isaac on a late-night caffeine binge.

If only he could remember what he put in the dungeon’s final chamber…

The review --
Okay, so this is the 2nd best book I've read this year. The first best was book 1 in this series. I love this series, I love the story, I especially love the characters that the author has created. And what if you're not into role playing games? No biggie. Neither am I, but I loved this book.

The wonderful humor in the first book is still present in this book too. Another thing I really liked in this book is the relationship between Dak and Isaac gets explored some more. The endings of both books were continued type endings, but not cliffhangers. It doesn't leave you desperate to know what happens next, but it does leave you definitely wanting more. And I do want more. I want to read book 3, and find out what happens next with these characters and these stories.

If there's any book that you should put on your MUST-READ list, it is books 1 and 2 of this series. They are simply great. They have drama, they have depth, they have humor …. simply put, they have it all. All the things a great book should have.
