loved it

A great addition to the spellmonger series with some interesting insights into some episodes that are referenced in the books but which Mancour builds upon and finesses in this book. I'm totally committed to the story and just love the direction that some of the mythology is taking. John Lee's performance is amazing, with his accents and vocal characterisation bring all these characters to life. I can't wait for the next book and want to thank Mr Mancour for keeping me enthralled and delightfully distracted from all the rubbish and darkness that is going on at the moment.

Very Entertaining Collection

What a fun collection of stories from the Mongerverse taking us all across the Five Duchies. I’ve enjoyed the Spellmonger books from the start and this anthology definitely doesn’t disappoint.

We are treated to exploring Minalan’s home village of Talry, meeting his family and fending off the evil Censorate. Back across to the Bontal Vales we discover there are secret parts to Sevendor. Riding with Joppo we get to build bridges in Sashtalia and cross Castal on one of the funniest clandestine missions of the series. There’s even some edits to one story that is creating a buzz.

Genuinely a treat that I’m pleased is part of my library! Thank You Terry and John, and everyone involved in bringing these stories to audio book!!!

this is a good collection

I've liked every book in this series. this one aside from one short story, expands on the different things happening or happened in the world so far. as for that one story I'll let you all debate which it is. i gave the story portion of this rating only 4 stars for the simple reason of it not really being a stand alone book. the storys are good dont get me wrong but its not one you can pick up and understand what is going on in the world completely. I'm going to give it a second listen with one or two titles seperation and edit my review if needed. I really like this author and narrator combo I hope the legacy stays intact. thank you both for your hard work.

you know why you're here

Either you've stumbled on this book and don't know the Series, or you've listened to every book in the series and just need a bump to get you to the Arcanist release.

If the former, listen to the core series first, the stories here may spoil things but definitely add context in hindsight.
If the latter, just give them your credit already, why are you even reading this.

Nothing but a re-run boring rerun, after rerun after rerun. Lets get back to the story

What a wonderful world!

I believe this anthology could stand alone, though the richness of knowing the background and context of these stories cannot be understated!

Mancour & Lee Never Disappoint!

I appreciate getting the back story, connecting dots between storylines and characters getting fleshed out, so I throughly enjoyed this anthology. While an author has much more leeway than a movie script writer, an author still can’t include every scene and sidelight that occurs during the writing process. Some of those are the beginnings of new books, but some “end up on the cutting room floor”. I enjoyed it Terry Mancour, and thank you John Lee for adding that additional zing of magic only an accomplished narrator can give to a well developed fantasy world.

Leaves one hungry for more

This definitely fills in the gaps between Warmage and Magelord, and the missing parts from Magelord. My favorites were The Spellmongers Wedding, Victory Soup, and The Road to Sevendor, though The Ugliest Maid in Castal had me laughing at my desk at work. The sardonic wit, clevar conversation, and detailed plot not only reveals more of the Spellmonger world, but reintroduces us to the beloved characters. And the cliffhanger at the end makes me more hungry than ever for Arcanist. October 1st can't come any sooner!

Excellent!!

this is exactly what I needed to get through the day! This collection of stories was great! All the little side remarks throughout the series by Min are revealed on these stories and they give you a nice look into behind the scenes characters or even those just casually mentioned. It was sad when it ended

Great book enjoyed the short stories.

Great stories and quick to get through. Nothing better than quick reminders of the going's on at Sevendor.
