Publisher's Summary

Minalan the moody!

Meanwhile, back at the castle...Minalan the spellmonger faces the boredom of house arrest after being confined to his lands by Prince Tavard for his defiance with the Wilderlands refugees. The Alka Alon have returned to their seclusion, dealing with their own crisis, the dead god is being quiet within the Umbra, and Min’s plans toward reestablishing a functional Duchy of Alshar are progressing.

Min sees his punishment as a unique opportunity to indulge in thaumaturgical research. When the Sevendor Magic Fair brings a tide of enchanters eager for snowstone, irionite, and opportunity to his door (as well as the newly formed Arcane Knights of Nablus, the successors of the Censorate in Merwyn), Minalan uses his wealth and position to invite them to stay on in Sevendor over the winter and focus on the developing art of enchantment.

He forms the first Bouleuterion, a conclave of enchanters dedicated to producing and researching the creation of magical items, since the fall of the Magocracy. Such notable enchanters as Lanse of Bune, Taren, and Masters Andalnam and Cormoran arrive to help Minalan and his staff of experts push the frontiers of magical science as far as he can. Even Lorcus, Tyndal, and Rondal help out. His secret mission is, of course, to fathom the complexities of the secret Snowflake of Sevendor, the enigmatic pseudo-molopor created from Minalan’s fevered subconscious...but not before they improve the lot of the peasantry by creating a wealth of labor-saving (and potentially socially revolutionary) devices.

But enchanters and former Censors are not the only ones to arrive at the fair: Baron and Baroness Greenflower, Magelords Dunselen and Isily, come to Sevendor as well...and the results are explosive. Before they depart Minalan’s entire life is thrown into doubt. Especially when a new divinity appears to make him an offer the spellmonger just can’t refuse.

As Minalan works through his psychological issues by obsessively focusing on his craft, he must also nimbly maneuver his way around an inevitable war between Sendaria and Sashtalia, protect his vulnerable domains, deftly negotiate his course through the tangle of feudal law and obligation in the Bontal Vales, and contend with his troubled marriage.

His frustration, guilt, and doubt are soon revealed to be authored by a secret plot against him. The return of an old enemy and the revelation of new foes challenges his position as head of the Arcane Orders and puts his entire family in jeopardy. Could it be that Minalan’s new 11-year-old apprentice, Ruderal, is the only one capable of seeing through the deceptions in time to save them all even as he struggles with his own guilt about his role in releasing Korbal the undead Demon God from his tomb? Or will their fates lie on the whims of a former lover who has ambitions of her own for Minalan?

Fabulous Storey Telling

Terry Mancour does a superb job of mixing magic ideas with mundane living. I especially like his explanations of how a feudal system works.

Ok that’s enough. I quit!

Seriously this is the third in the series that has been so bloody boring it’s not even funny. I quit. I’m not reading anymore. This one feels like the author is trying to impress us with how many polysyllabic nonsensical words he can come up with for a “science” that doesn’t exsit. Honestly, find the most boring TED talk on theoretical physics and listen to that. At least then you might have some interesting tid bits for your next dinner party. There are about 5 chapters worth listening to. Other than that its just bla bla bla boring minutiae that the author is just using to fill a contractual obligation. This should have, along with the prior 2, been short stories and nothing more. So not impressed. And who ever is directing the audio needs to tell the narrator to stick to the same pronunciation of names throughout the story and between books. That drives me nuts!

ugh.. hard time getting through this one

Definitely not his best book of the series, there was a stretch through the middle of the book that was terribly boring, like a sandwich with nothing between the bread..

Weakest book in the series so far

I love the series, but this book was sub-par and would have benefited from a good editor. A ton of time is spent discussing, debating, and designing grand enchantments, but there is no payoff for the reader. It's apparently all setup for a subsequent book.
