Summary

The latest book in the Audie-nominated Spellmonger series.

Minalan’s Summer Vacation!

What does the most powerful wizard in the world do after the war is over? Despite the hordes of goblins still ready to ravage human lands, King Rard has signed a treaty with them, so Minalan is forbidden from taking advantage of their weakened state. Most would take a well-deserved rest over the summer…but Minalan and his household are busy repaying a favor owed to the tribal Kasari for their help in the war, and the Spellmonger pays his debts. So Minalan spends his summer sneaking 2,000 Kasari children through enemy lines, goblin territory, hostile Wilderlords, and through some of the roughest territory in the Five Duchies toward salvation.

But the Spellmonger soon learns that not even the help of a goddess is going to be sufficient to contend with the realities of the quest. Despite his best efforts and some of the most advanced magic seen since the Magocracy, the march attracts enemies…and far too many friends. 

For when the desperate refugees of the war-torn Alshari Wilderlands see the well-fed legions of Kasari march by, they cannot help but follow, even if they have no idea of the destination. Any life is better than the hopeless existence they’ve lived avoiding starvation and the goblins’ stewpot. And the promise of hope the great march of the Spellmonger’s children offers is just too good to pass up. Security and the promise of a brighter future lie just on the other side of the border with the duchy of Castal.

The problem is that the Duke of Castal, Prince Tavard, who is also Minalan's titular overlord, is dead-set against a single Alshari refugee crossing his frontier - and he’s assembled a small army to stop any from doing so. With political pressure high and the very gods maneuvering behind the scenes, it’s going to take some clever magic, some inspired legal maneuvering, and some serious effort to pull off this miracle… but that’s the kind of job the Spellmonger does in Journeymage!

Superb!

I am totally captured by this series and am eagerly awaiting the next book on audible!
The storyline grasps you and the narration is perfect. The two together makes this series addictive!
Thank you so much!

This series is amazing x

The spellmonger series goes from strength to strength. The witty but meaningful writing, the characters, and the simple joy of the fantasy make it a treat to read. This is all helped along by the rich narration.

I can't wait for the next one x

More of the same but still a good book

Good strong storey but sometimes wallowing in meaningless details. Great for building up the story line but over done in places. This seams to be a bit of a filler book Can't wait for the next one in the series

Another great listen!

This was another great listen.
However there could of been more action and less logistics.
That said it flowed nicely and gave some good things to think about while waiting for the next book

this was Great

This was a great in-between sort of chapter in the Spellmonger Series. I have enjoyed Minalan's character so far, but this showed a benevolence that I wished all people shared.

We have a treaty

Had some solid humour and plot progression but a shorter book than some of the previous books.

Great book!! My favorite BOOK SERIES.

I love this book but i kind of have a problem that the side story's aren't on audible yet. And it feels like you miss a lot of information.

DAMN fine fable.

The only problem I have with this series is that the final books are not on audio yet. If, like me, you get totally captured by really good stories then you might want to wait till they're all out on audio before starting this great series. I gave it five stars only because six was not an option!

Oh the struggle of waiting for the next installment; oh but I shall wait. Woe unto me a unfulfilled desire. Unrequited and languid in the grace of every word lest spoken.
