Publisher's Summary

The latest book in the Audie-nominated Spellmonger series.

Minalan’s Summer Vacation!

What does the most powerful wizard in the world do after the war is over? Despite the hordes of goblins still ready to ravage human lands, King Rard has signed a treaty with them, so Minalan is forbidden from taking advantage of their weakened state. Most would take a well-deserved rest over the summer…but Minalan and his household are busy repaying a favor owed to the tribal Kasari for their help in the war, and the Spellmonger pays his debts. So Minalan spends his summer sneaking 2,000 Kasari children through enemy lines, goblin territory, hostile Wilderlords, and through some of the roughest territory in the Five Duchies toward salvation.

But the Spellmonger soon learns that not even the help of a goddess is going to be sufficient to contend with the realities of the quest. Despite his best efforts and some of the most advanced magic seen since the Magocracy, the march attracts enemies…and far too many friends. 

For when the desperate refugees of the war-torn Alshari Wilderlands see the well-fed legions of Kasari march by, they cannot help but follow, even if they have no idea of the destination. Any life is better than the hopeless existence they’ve lived avoiding starvation and the goblins’ stewpot. And the promise of hope the great march of the Spellmonger’s children offers is just too good to pass up. Security and the promise of a brighter future lie just on the other side of the border with the duchy of Castal.

The problem is that the Duke of Castal, Prince Tavard, who is also Minalan's titular overlord, is dead-set against a single Alshari refugee crossing his frontier - and he’s assembled a small army to stop any from doing so. With political pressure high and the very gods maneuvering behind the scenes, it’s going to take some clever magic, some inspired legal maneuvering, and some serious effort to pull off this miracle… but that’s the kind of job the Spellmonger does in Journeymage!

this was Great

This was a great in-between sort of chapter in the Spellmonger Series. I have enjoyed Minalan's character so far, but this showed a benevolence that I wished all people shared.

Great book!! My favorite BOOK SERIES.

I love this book but i kind of have a problem that the side story's aren't on audible yet. And it feels like you miss a lot of information.

Next

Oh the struggle of waiting for the next installment; oh but I shall wait. Woe unto me a unfulfilled desire. Unrequited and languid in the grace of every word lest spoken.

We have a treaty

Had some solid humour and plot progression but a shorter book than some of the previous books.

Series has really veered off track

The first two books of the Spellmonger series, the first especially, were great - the protagonist and his various allies struggling against a surprise invasion by a goblin horde. Unfortunately as the series progresses the author is no longer focusing on the goblin invasion and each entry into the series seems like a separate, unconnected story, lacking the urgency and hook of the original premise of the series.

In this entry, Minolan escorts a group of children from one of the allied human factions to safety. Along the way, the group collects other refugees fleeing the goblins. That's about it - there's only one battle and the outcome of that is never really in doubt. I don't really understand what the purpose of this book was or how it contributes to the series, as the entire plot could have been condensed into a paragraph in a book that actually dealt with the central plot point Mancour created.

Again, this series really started strong but seems to be wandering listlessly at this point and I won't be continuing.

Feels like a filler episode

Not a bad story, but it just seems like it's a filler between the actual story.
Nothing much happens, and I doubt readers would need much more than the last 10-15 minutes of this book before reading the next in the series.
All in all it's a somewhat short story in the usual surroundings and very little plot progression to speak of.
