When the Magelord Minalan, the Spellmonger's two apprentices, Tyndal and Rondal, were knighted after the battle of Timberwatch, they were dubbed Knights Magi: a new class of nobility for distinguished High Magi. Designed to combine the pursuit of arcane knowledge with the noble aspirations of chivalry, it elevated them above common warmage...in theory. The problem was they had no idea how to be a Knight Mage...because no one had ever been one before.

Terry has produced yet another fantastic tale in the Spellmonger series! Great plot, and enthralling story telling, I can’t wait for more in the series. My only issue is that book was just a little too short! I really wanted more detail on the exploits in the academy, as this section ended very abruptly, when I felt it demanded more, but overall a cracking tale!

It's not easy, being king. You can't always rule a kingdom and still do what needs to be done. Eric - or King Halar, also known as the Demon King - has more than enough problems without the crown. But quitting the job of king isn't easy, either - unless you want to be beheaded. Most people regard that as an unsatisfactory way to quit. Even vampire lords tend to be cautious about guillotines. A king who loses his head has a real problem...or none at all.

Good, but lack the power of the last few.

A good book, but not a fantastic book. The story is too rambling and disjointed and doesn’t have the punch expected in key places like with the deaths of certain characters! Unfortunately it’s a rather disjointed book, unlike the the last few, which were absolutely excellent. I hope the author plans a follow up and that it will be as powerful and moving as the first few books in the Nightlord series.

We all have inner demons. We fight them all the time. Some of us achieve inner peace by coming to terms with them. But how do you come to terms with inner demons that tear free and become outer demons? Eric has been a vampire for nearly a century, and his demons are more than metaphors. While they controlled him, he was the Demon King. Now he has to avoid the monsters in his own mind, as well as angry nobles, fanatical religions, assassins, magi, other vampires, criminal organizations, and more.
