Summary

The second Spellmonger anthology!

It is said by some that the Spellmonger’s exile to the Magelaw left Sevendor, the City of Magic, unprotected in his absence.

That would be untrue, for though the mightiest mage of the era was forced by law and custom to refrain from visiting his realm in Castal, he left behind a significant body of learned and dedicated colleagues to continue his policies and see to the protection of the magelands. These were not all warmagi, nor even High Magi; indeed, the strength of Sevendor depended on magi of all types and descriptions.

As Minalan fought against the darkest foes in the West, his lands in the east were protected by his vassals, allies, and friends. Their powers varied, as did their station. But they were uniformly devoted to Minalan the Spellmonger and the land he had wrought. They kept watch against secret incursions or hidden dangers against the realm while the Spellmonger’s strength was elsewhere. Whilst he grappled with the fearsome minions of Korbal the Necromancer, his magical land was well-warded by the famous Wizards of Sevendor.

From the Heeth the Arcanist’s History of the Magelands.

Can you be not happy while giving 5 stars?

An "Anthology" - or a few short stories to keep you going while you wait for the next book. They have done a few of these and we bought them too so lets keep milking this while we can!

So why am I giving it 5* ? Because its still brilliant - it really adds to the overall storyline and I loved it and it has John Lee doing my favourite characters again ....

Criticism? Why isnt it a new book? When is the new book? Why isnt it longer? When can I have more of my favourite characters and more of John Lee?

This is a starter when you are starving .... but it will do until the next real one comes

A great fill in for characters that rarely get a prime slot.
Heartily recommend but as always leaves you wanting more and faster.

An enjoyable selection of stories

These were very entertaining tales. I know the details will have relevance in the upcoming main story and wait for the new book in the Spellmonger series with anticipation.

Doesn't advance the story

I've loved the series but this book seems like a short filler without anything that really advances the story. Looking forward to the main books coming out again.

stunning collection of tales

more tales of those close to the spellmonger, giving more life and depth to the magical medieval world, and the characters there in.

AMAZING STORIES

I love the detail, the stories tie in and expand on plot points from across the main series. It’s fantastic to get more world building and insights into the Mongerverse! I’ve really appreciated this instalment to the Epic-er series that is Spellmonger! Thank You to everyone involved!

Waste of time and money

While I am glad Terry Mancore has found his cash cow it's more than a bit tiresome for this particular fan. This book adds absolutely nothing to the story and was very tough to get through. I won't be purchasing any more of the .5 books and if the next book in the series isn't a step in the right direction I'm afraid that the Spellmonger series will be losing a fan. The series started very good and had great promise. It's clear now that the author is expanding them to keep the money coming in.

John Lee was excellent as ALWAYS.

A bit disappointing

I feel like these .5 books should of been made at the end of the series and into 1 big book. It's disappointing that this isn't a continuation of the main story.
This book is about a collection of side characters while Minalan is banned from returning to Sevendor. I'm not interested in these stories whatsoever, but they aren't bad stories. I really wish it could of been about tindel or even better, the continuation of the main story. I really hope book 13 is soon to follow. I didn't bother with the other .5 book and I kinda wish I did the same with this.

I want more

This book is descriptive and jumps around. Normally I find that annoying and hard to follow. However, I find I only want more. Good in all areas.

Great Background , but....

This is quite a large world Terry Mancour has created. I also get frustrated with these books that are tangential to the main story. These stories are not needed, but they do add so much more flavor to this wonderful world....but I want to know more!

I have invested myself in so many TV shows, Movies and book series that never get completed, and there is at least 4 or 5 more books needed just to complete this main story line to its natural conclusion. I am already getting old!

This is ,by far, the best detailed book series I have ever heard. "Please, may I have some more sir!"

Another Great Anthology

Terry Mancour continues to impress with these anthologies between mainline books. My only complaint is that they don’t last long enough. I admire his world building ability as Calidor increases to grow. This is a must listen for the series.
