Summary

The Alchemist meets The Three Musketeers - with card tricks. A brilliant origin story of adventure, wit and philosophy to enrapture devotees as well as newcomers to the Spellslinger series.

Ferius Parfax has a simple plan: kill every last inhabitant of the spell-gifted nation that destroyed her people, starting with the man who murdered her parents. Killing mages is a difficult and dangerous business, of course, but when she meets the inimitable and extraordinary Durrall Brown she discovers that physical strength is not the only way to defeat evil of all kinds. 

So Ferius undertakes to study the ways of the Argosi: the loosely knit tribe of tricksters known for getting the better of even the most powerful of spellcasters. But the Argosi have a price for their teachings, and by the time Ferius learns what it is, it may be too late.

Perfect for fans of The Dark Tower, Firefly, Guardians of the Galaxy, Terry Pratchett, Ben Aaronovitch and Jim Butcher.

The serious side of Ferius Parfax.

I loved Ferius Parfax in the Spellslinger series so was keen to listen to her story. I found This book hard going and I did not enjoy the first twenty odd chapters. It did pick up in the final half of the book and again I'm interested in the second book.

if you are a fan of the Spellslinger series then this different its not as light hearted, and it seriously misses a squirrel cat.

narration was spotless.

Excellent

I have to admit when i realised this book wasn’t to be narrated by Joe Jameson i feared the worst. Joe is great with female voices and his Ferius Parfax in the Spellslinger series was for me perfect.
In general i don’t get along with female narrators doing fantasy, they just don’t click with me. However having said that i thought Kristin Atherton did a great job, she managed to give each character their own voice and her delivery was smooth and flawless. I loved the story partly because i love that world but also because it was interesting and gripping and of course gave me more information about one of my favourite characters in fantasy. Cant wait for the follow up book..
