Publisher's Summary

The Spellmonger series continues with a search for answers in The Lost Land of Anghysbel....

After winning two wars against the Nemovorti, Minalan plans an expedition to The Lost Valley of Anghysbel, in the far north of his realm. It's there, in the caldera of a supervolcano at the edge of the tundra, he suspects many of the answers he so desperately needs might be hidden. The only problem is that thanks to the anti-magical properties of the jevolar, his spells won’t work; he’ll be without magic for the first time since he came into his Talent. On this quest for the knowledge to save the world, the stakes are too high to be concerned about such things. Minalan seeks the knowledge he needs, no matter the price.

The Footwizard, Fondaras the Wise, has been to the realm of the jevolar four times in his long life. He knows the way, and he knows the great dangers of the non-magical land. He warns that Anghysbel is filled with forgotten creatures and lost races that have hidden from the world for eons. That doesn’t dissuade the Spellmonger - it’s a challenge. But once he’s there, Minalan’s expedition discovers a unique land filled with forgotten secrets.

Dark powers more ancient than the world dwell in exotic Anghysbel, powers that would speed Callidore’s destruction, not work for its salvation. Minalan the Spellmonger has to consider carefully if he’s willing to pay the price to save the world...and the cost of that bargain may well be his life.

13 Books Culminating to This?

Terry Mancour, you brilliant son of a gun. I'm reasonably certain I've listened to 300+ hours of Sevendor narrative solely so you could reveal the timeless secret to wooing a lady. Well done indeed.

The best one yet!

If you are 12 books deep into a series you hardly need a full review to convivence you to listen to the 13th. I will simply say that this is the best in the series thus far. Terry Mancour continues to deliver with the adventures of Minalan and Callidore. John Lee delivers another excellent performance and we even get, in a very serious manner "Rick Rolled". It was amazing.

Masterpiece

Giving this 5 stars across the board purely due to the most masterful Rick Roll I’ve ever heard.

This book needed editing.

I'm a huge fan. Read and reread the books several times. This is the worst book of the series. I almost couldn't get through it. I'm always up for a new Spellmonger book, but not if this is what's coming. We are forced to read Footwizard to stay up with the story, but one more like this and idk. Pace is horrible. The narrative is such that I assume he is getting paid by the word. There are answers but no growth, Our favorite characters on the page, soulless shells, not interacting with each other, undefined and doing one-liners and rickrolls. My advice - listen to it while you are doing something useful so it's not a complete waste of time.
John Lee was amazing as always!

The writing is excellent!!!!

This story consumes you ...once u start, there is no stopping until you're done. It takes over your life.

Terry Mancour is a master ...his name deserves to be recognized on the same level as Tolkien or Martin. As a series Spellmonger is potent. Pound for pound I can't think of any other series that hits you this hard.
John Lee slays ...the books are great on their own, but he actually makes them even better.

What a joy this has been. I can't wait for the next book in the series, also I hope this gets picked up as a movie series or tv series. My imagination allows me to thoroughly enjoy the story, but I wud still love to see this world brought to life in a visual format.

Soooooooo Gooooooood!!!!

Fun and New

Very good change of pace from the typical pacing. I like the sci-fi elements of this series. I will say there are wayyyy too many references to pop culture, musicians, and movies. This isn’t family guy, don’t overdo it.

The series is declining. Its a real shame.

I have to admit that I didn't enjoy this one as much as the others. For the first time it felt that Terry had properly run out of steam. Given the focus on spin off books (which I've mostly ignored) and the declining main series, I'll probably leave it now. Until now though it's been a breath of fresh air.

This review might seem a bit harsh, but fans tend to leave glowing reviews and fail to mention the negatives, so thought I'd put some time into this.

Very little actually happens in the first two thirds, which is mainly filled with heavy exposition, introducing new characters and plot lines but with no real action. At times, the same information is imparted twice, or Terry gives us the name for something obscure in five made up languages, to no apparent purpose. A lot of his other books have been guilty of this too, but was very bad in this one. I found my self saying 'oh come on, just get on with it' out load a few times. A lot of this should have been picked up in editing. Also WAY too many references to 'old earth' pop culture. I got the gist, no need to beat me to death with it and it was all a but cringey at times.

The usual strange (sexual/mysoginistic?) attitude to female characters continues here. I imagine most readers are male so won't care, but it is all slightly odd. The main female character has even taken on these same traits, being sex obsessed and making comments that you'd attribute to a 12 year old. Terry has a very odd view of women, even for a fantasy!

Generally, I have also found Terry's writing to be refreshingly original. But themes from this one were barely disguised Tolkien rip offs. Ent moots, balrogs, dwarves and mithril, its all here.

On the 'tekka', I'm not usually a fan of mixing fantasy (magic) with technology. Its messy and it can pull you out of the story. It wasn't too bad here but some references were still off-putting. Also, I've been reading a fantasy series until now so feel slightly peeved at the switch - but willing to give the benefit of the doubt on this one.

Last third really picked up though- so here's hoping the series gets back on track for those who want to continue. John Lee was dependably amazing in his narration. I think he saved this one for me - I'm not sure I'd have been able to finish a printed version.

One book to many, as the series going downwards

Book 13 is pointless to the overall theme of the series, in fact it is the most up and down book of the series to date. Sometimes its ok to good then it takes a turn into utter rubbish with too much story and plot repetition along with too much irrelevant padding. I didn’t understand the point of the many of the new characters and plot lines but with no real action.

What was the point of talking trees? And why the constant repeating of the same information.

When I enjoy a book, I can stay up all night listening, with this one I kept falling asleep.

I still enjoyed John Lee’s narration.

A good look at the wider universe!

Really enjoyed this book. It takes a good look at the wider universe and thankful the stakes have stopped climbing which was one of my few complaints of the series so far.

I would have enjoyed the ending exactly 1000 times more if the next book was already out!

I assume anyone reading a review of book 13 has read the others, so just buy it you already know you like it and this is more of the same with some actual answers.

Utter Drek

Several hours worth of audiobook where lots is described and talked about and nothing whatsoever actually happens. There's no context to any of it. No drama. Just, so we're here, this is that, now we're going over here, and this happened, no, it had nothing to do with what just happened and it'll never be spoken of again. Utterly pointless, dull, and uninteresting.

Glad when the book concluded

The Spellmonger series has been my favourite book series for some time now...

This is the first book I have listened to and wished for it to end. I felt obliged to give it a chance.

If you want a flavour of the book just narrow your search to reviews with 1 to 3 stars, they are all pretty accurate.

John Lee saved the day with his narration, however this time Terry Mancour let the partnership down.

If the next book is as poor as this one, my Spellmonger journey will come to a premature end :(

another amazing book

this book adds very nicely to the story and had me left mouth agape at some of the storylines and plot twists
my biggest problem with this book is that the last 5 minutes tell about 2 books worth of story meaning the next few books will likely happened in parallel to this one meaning we don't find out what happens next for a while

HAHAHA You Rock rolled us!

this has expanded the universities immensely! i was nervous when that began, I've seen it ruin stories before. but as with everything else in this series it felt seamless. As if it had always been there, and you simply had to look hard enough.

oh and i lost it when i heard the Rick role 🤣😂🤣😂🤣

Book was slow but the ending was good

The first half of the book could have been done quicker. It dragged on a lot. If this was a side story this would have been fine but I think the world is built at this stage and the story could flow quicker. I look forward to the next book

The snippet of the other series.... I just don't like the narrator. Couldn't listen to it

Maintaining the status quo

Always love these books and can’t wait for the next one. This series is far better than the new one with Catina but that could just be the narrator perhaps

self indulgence isnt something you should pay for

like the last three or six???? books in this series this is a never ending waste of $15.
kept hoping that this may have been something better than some author trying to ring more money from a story that could have been good if it was condensed into six books.
watch out he will try to ring another couple of hundred dollars out of this turd.
OMG just seen there is another book after this. not sure if there is a Guiness World record for someone stretching things out but if so please give this writer an elastic band and watch him smash every world record ever set.
