Large gap since last read

I had lost my copy of The Warlock in Spite of Himself and recently found it at the library. I was able to locate The Warlock Unlocked and The Warlock Enraged, but have yet to find my copy of King Kobold Revived.

Having said that I have a question. It has been a long time since reading this series, but it seems like there is a lot missing if you go from Spite to Unlocked, e.g, Rod's reconciliation with the Crown and the reference to Magnus thwarting the bad guys at age two.

Do I need to read Kobold before Unlocked?

You don't HAVE to, of course, as the events in Kobold don't affect the events in rest of the series too much. That said, it's worth a read. I personally enjoyed it, if no other other reason than I enjoy the Yorick character. There's also the occasional reference to "Beastland" throughout the rest of the series, but you won't know what that is unless you've read Kobold.

Hey kapeman

King Kolbold Revived does indeed deal with Rod's reconciliation with the crown and Magnus' early besting of villains. I recommend it highly, but then I'm biased. It was the first Stasheff book I read, and I've never been the same since!
