Publisher's Summary

Company’s Coming!

Just when Baron Minalan the Spellmonger figured out there was a slim chance to restore his mind-shattered wife Alya (if he's willing to journey to the undercaverns of Olum Seheri, the lair of Korbal the Necromancer), things start to go awry: not only does Prince Tavard, his unloved liege lord, decide to conduct an official state visit to Sevendor on pilgrimage to the Everfire on the Briga's feast day, but a mysterious seamage appears at his door with an intriguing offer from the Sea Folk who rule Callidore: They want to buy snowstone. An entire mountain of it. 

Between feuding factions of Alka Alon and the contentious nobility of his own kingdom, Minalan is already in arcane intrigue up to his pointy hat, but when the foremost wizard of the age has problems, he also has resources. Before the pilgrimage concludes it sets mighty actions in their courses, and even the gods elect to intervene publicly in Minalan's life. 

Minalan realizes that he has little choice but to consider an impossible quest into the heart of his enemy's realm, to the caverns of the dead, themselves, if he is to resolve the many conflicts in play. He must recover an ancient artefact of the Sea Folk known as the Handmaiden, and in order to do so he will have to organize the most audacious raid on the most horrific foe in humanity's history on Callidore! Who else but Minalan the Spellmonger has the magic stones to challenge the undead might of the Necromancer!

10 books worth of world building pays off

I'm a bit of a late comer to this series. I've had the pleasure of bingeing it while at work at a mindless labour job and the world building in this series is absolutely enthralling.

This book there are some huge payoffs from things mentioned as far back as the first book which really tells you that the author has thought out the whole broad story and created something truly amazing.

Great work Terry, you're easily one of my favorite authors. :)

Love it, more please, write faster!

**Spoiler Alert***

I love the implications of this actually being a crazy SciFi story... So good. I was hoping that you would go this direction when I first heard the stuff about the techa. After this crazy war I would love to hear stories about Captain Spellmonger. So epic. Also, I dig the idea of him becoming immortal and hearing these stories about him experiencing ages and his perspective of the whole thing. I don't want him to become a god or anything. Just an immortal dude with waxing and waning power as he discovers more and more of the universe around him. Eventually maybe he's all powerful on Calidor, but in space he's a nobody. Then maybe he leverages his new home base on Calidor to become a power in his region of space, but then he discovers worm holes, and he's a nobody again. The future possibilities are endless and I want to hear it all please never stop!

It keeps getting better!

After 10 books you'd wonder if there was still more story to listen to without going over the same bumps and curves and becoming stale.
luckily this is not the case, the world of the Spellmonger just becomes more detailed and involved creating an imaginative real world that I want to continue delving into.

back to form!

this book was fantastic. I hit a wall with the series around book 8 and really struggled to read the next book, but this one made up for all of it. if you are thinking about giving up on the series or you've reached the court wizard book and are not really enjoying it, think about skipping to this one. I think once the series is done, somebody's going to have to create a machete order for these books so readers can skip the slow parts.

Unexpected developments!!!

I rarely write a review halfway through a book unless its a book that im not happy with, but this addition to the series has one heck of a twist to it, it quite frankly shocked me to the point that I had to go back to the start of the twist and re-listen. I will say that this new development has completely turned the Spell Monger series on its head, I had no suspicions whatsoever that this series would take such drastic turn, for me its a great change in direction, I have listened to every book in the series and have really enjoyed all but that Court Wizard book, I actually return that book as it was awful.

This book starts out very slow to the point I was tempted to skip through a few hours to see if it got better, but this book does improve with story quality and progression about 6 hours in. If you are having doubts about getting this book I very much recommend you get this book and you will thank me around the 11 and a half hour mark in the book. This series can go in some many interesting directions now, more than defeat the Necro dude and the undead butthead, im definitely looking forward to the next book, and infact the rest of this book. Wow I never thought finding out the origins of humanity would be so shocking, once you find out for your self there are a few words that now make complete sense the author uses through out all these book. Where did humans come from? I cannot say it as it may spoil it for you.
Enjoy

No end in sight... thank God!

Terry Mancour writes fascinating compelling stories, and has done so again. The frustration at this point, I cannot wait for the next tale!

Probably My Last

I admit it was an interesting series as far as how it developed. The narrator started off horribly with the first book but got miles more skillful in later ones, though his range of voice changes is limited. This story though is quite meandering and I feel is just designed to keep us trapped in a storyline that needlessly takes years to finish a single villain off. So I think it will have to be my last. It’s book 10 and nothing of meaning has changed except the characters’ relation to each other and how much of the kingdom the main character controls.

Loved it

My husband and I can't wait until the next book. Hopefully there is a next one. The Spellmonger series has kept me going throughout my cancer treatments. John Lee you are the best narrator I have had the pleasure of listening to.

A great series with some glaring issues.

I will be upfront with this review and put it in two parts. First part all the good stuff because I believe this series and book is more good than bad.

This book and series are really some of the most imaginative and fun books currently out there. The characters (exceptions below) are wonderful, the action moves well, the plot is intricate and fun. I really enjoy the work and the voice acting is absolutely top notch. Mancour's take on fantasy is refreshing and so well done.

Now the not so good. Mancour definitely has some real trouble with female characters. While he doesn't overtly hate on them like say Martin does, they definitely run on a wildly different set of guidelines than his male ones. I am probably overly critical because the whole world turns on a character because she refuses the advances of one guy. But it seems the course for the series. If a female in the world wants to be a character she has to accept the advances of any male who wants her or be exiled for being unfair.

Just my take. One spoiler though. I truly hope the character Garath dies in the next book.

Babies

Omg, I feel like we need to take a step back. Pretty much every plot line has to do with them. Like either complaining about them, having them, moving them, killing them. Some is OK but let's get a bit more meat in it. However still great series just want to see a bit more character building that doesn't involve babies and how to achieve them lol.

I Hate to See These Books Come to An End

Just want one expects. A great story that captures your imaginations and keeps it moving. I love Sci. Fiction but over the years too many books for my liking have a lot of battles with very little story to flesh the different characters out. If you read or listened to the series all the different characters have complete personalities and you pretty much know what to expect from them. When there was betrayal in the King's house, you automatically knew the wrong person had been betrayed, although that too is a story within itself. John Lee performance is always stellar and just as I'm apt to avoid some books because of the reader, I'm willing to try a new author because I know his performance will not let me down. I'm so looking forwards to the next book.
