Wick is a dweller (akin to a hobbit) and Third-Level Librarian for the Vault of All Known Knowledge. His father is disappointed in him for not following him in to the lamp lighting business. And his supervisor is hard on him for reading so many adventure stories instead of educational materials.
Through a humorous misunderstanding, Wick finds himself shanghaied aboard a pirate ship. Little Wick has many adventures that lead him into danger, but he learns a lot about the world and himself along the way.
This series is compared to Lord of the Rings, but it’s much more light-hearted and easier to read. The character Wick is fun and endearing. The story is both adventurous and humorous. And I love Odom’s style of writing.
