Summary

Company’s Coming!

Just when Baron Minalan the Spellmonger figured out there was a slim chance to restore his mind-shattered wife Alya (if he's willing to journey to the undercaverns of Olum Seheri, the lair of Korbal the Necromancer), things start to go awry: not only does Prince Tavard, his unloved liege lord, decide to conduct an official state visit to Sevendor on pilgrimage to the Everfire on the Briga's feast day, but a mysterious seamage appears at his door with an intriguing offer from the Sea Folk who rule Callidore: They want to buy snowstone. An entire mountain of it. 

Between feuding factions of Alka Alon and the contentious nobility of his own kingdom, Minalan is already in arcane intrigue up to his pointy hat, but when the foremost wizard of the age has problems, he also has resources. Before the pilgrimage concludes it sets mighty actions in their courses, and even the gods elect to intervene publicly in Minalan's life. 

Minalan realizes that he has little choice but to consider an impossible quest into the heart of his enemy's realm, to the caverns of the dead, themselves, if he is to resolve the many conflicts in play. He must recover an ancient artefact of the Sea Folk known as the Handmaiden, and in order to do so he will have to organize the most audacious raid on the most horrific foe in humanity's history on Callidore! Who else but Minalan the Spellmonger has the magic stones to challenge the undead might of the Necromancer!

WOW!!! The best fantasy novel ever!!

This is by far, my favourite book on audible to date! I had to take time off work when it first came out, because I could not stop listening!

Terry Mancour has created a thoroughly entertaining masterpiece, and John Lee’s performance is outstanding!
There are so many moving moments and so many more that literally had me in stitches!!! (Be careful when in public, people will think you’re nuts)

I’ve just finished and I’m so pleased the next book is already available on kindle! If anyone is on the fence over getting Necromancer, My message is GET IT, it’s worth every penny and more!

An epic book with a bit of everything

I have waited a long time for this audiobook, it was worth the wait. So much happens and the listener gets a bit of everything combat, magical theory, insight into the world and some excellent twists.

A most enjoyable listen for fans of the series.

The narrator does an excellent job for the most part, there are several voices and the book is long. John Lee is very capable. The issue with Sire Ryf and how his name is pronounced did bug me as it changed a few times and its always been the same in previous books.

Author and narrator deserve thanks and I look forward to the next audiobook.

Fantastic!

One of the best epic fantasy series, and very rewarding in my opinion. As I'm partial to long fantasy series, I feel that there is always a good pay off in each book.

John Lee really brings the characters to life, and really happy that he has continued voicing the entire series.

Terry Mancour has built a huge landscape with large cultures, and with his own spin of traditional fantasy races, combined with a touch of syfy too.

Incredible

WOW ! This book was incredible, With nods and winks to such epic mythology and society I was enraptured, constantly smiling, laughing shouting out and even getting teary eyed, The Sir Riff/Sire Rife bothered me a lot less than I thought, I surmised I had missed something there ? The ending was brilliant and I will lose sleep until I have heard the entirety of this collection by the genius mind that is Terry Mancour.

I Hate to See These Books Come to An End

Just want one expects. A great story that captures your imaginations and keeps it moving. I love Sci. Fiction but over the years too many books for my liking have a lot of battles with very little story to flesh the different characters out. If you read or listened to the series all the different characters have complete personalities and you pretty much know what to expect from them. When there was betrayal in the King's house, you automatically knew the wrong person had been betrayed, although that too is a story within itself. John Lee performance is always stellar and just as I'm apt to avoid some books because of the reader, I'm willing to try a new author because I know his performance will not let me down. I'm so looking forwards to the next book.

Loved it

My husband and I can't wait until the next book. Hopefully there is a next one. The Spellmonger series has kept me going throughout my cancer treatments. John Lee you are the best narrator I have had the pleasure of listening to.

exceptionally good series

I will admit I enjoy the plotting scheming intrigue politics and Relm development more than I enjoy the actual battle scenes.
I think the series is taking an interesting turn with the technology aspect but we will see.

Must read

I have listened to every book in this series thus far and Necromancer was 100% my favorite of them all. Hands down. No questions asked. If you enjoyed the earlier books in this series and/or you’re getting bored of it, I highly recommend sticking it out for this one. Brilliantly entertaining and inspired writing. Can’t wait for the next one to come out.
