Publisher's Summary

Having successfully driven off an assault and freed captives of Kelvanis, Sistina begins fortifying to defend those she cares about from further attacks. Yet with all her power within her halls, she cannot grant those under her protection true freedom. To truly bring hope to her love, Sistina must delve into who she once was, and bring forth every scrap of magic she has to become a shining beacon of hope.

Sadly, Kelvanis' plans are only mildly impeded by her efforts up until now, and they will stop at nothing to bring their ends about. The only question is, whose side is time on?

    "can't wait for the next book."

    This is by far one my favorite book series. I've never felt like writing reviews or looking up the date of when the next book would be available before this reading these books.

    "A Different Fantasy"

    Surprisingly compelling for a second book in a trillogy, Spells of Old did not disappoint.

    My personal guess as to why this book holds up so well on its own and as an installment in a series is the author's break from traditional narrative convention. This is not a traditional fantasy story in anything but the (possible over) use of traditional fantasy words. The most compelling character is a nigh-unstoppable not-quite deity, and she's the central figure of the tale through this book as well. She is just doing her own thing, and it's interesting to see how and why she takes steps to build up her power base and harem.

    In trying to spell it out, this is almost the reverse of a traditional fantasy tale. Almost all the supporting cast is on fairly standard fantasy adventures, even the badguy building up his evil empire, but our not-goddess is just doing her own thing. It's obvious to the audience that she will eventually but heads with others but it's hard to imagine how she'd be stopped, or even really slowed, and we're just along for the ride like the rest of the cast, watching her build power and do crazy powerful stuff for herself and those she cares about. How does she react to all the little people in her shadow, and how do they react now that she's starting to make waves?

    It's not a book one reads to empathize with a main character. This is a book and series for cheering on a superwoman as the word crashes into her, and admiring the mythology revealed in the prices left over.

    "10/10 Phenomenal"

    I plan to write a longer review later, but suffice it to say that I loved this book. The characters are all really fun and have their own unique voices, the writing is great (except for when the author uses the same word twice in a sentence, which is small, I know, but a pet peeve of mine), and the voice actor lends a lot to the story. I can't wait for the next book to come out. Thanks!

    The story is solid. Good world. Good magic. This story was easy to get into and the narrator was great. Looking foward to the last installment.

    I thought that after book one any follow up would be a disapointment, but I loved this addition.
