Publisher's Summary

The Journals of Minalan the Spellmonger.

After his eventful trip to the non-magical molopor in the distant domain of Anghysbel, Minalan’s return to civilization and magic finds him challenged by the changes wrought in the crypt of Szal the Yith. With nine distinctive sets of memories, besides his own, Minalan struggles to define himself in a turbulent time.

Things have never been more dire for the nascent Magelaw and the kingdom of Castalshar: the Duchy of Merwyn is encroaching the borders, the pirate realm of Farise is raiding shipping to a dreadful degree, and the dark lord Mycin Amana has captured Darkfaller, the largest castle in the land merely a few dozen miles away from the capital in the heart of the kingdom.

While that brazen act halted the civil war brewing between the ascendent magi and the deteriorating aristocracy of knights, the Spellmonger’s influence and intervention has never been more important. But is he up to the task?

With his brain buzzing with memories and feelings that aren’t his own and a list of vital tasks he must accomplish in order to save the world of Callidore from destruction, Minalan sets pen to parchment to chronicle his days in the heat of the struggle. His journal reveals the internal conflicts he battles, insights into his role and place in history, the difficulties managing his own political rise, and the constant effort of keeping his mind sharp enough to handle it all.

Yet the cracks are showing. People are talking about the Spellmonger, who mutters to himself and indulges in strange practices. His moodiness and distraction are visible for all to see, eroding some people’s confidence in his ability to lead . . . and leading others who sense vulnerability to strike out at the master mage. Violent episodes and fits of melancholy punctuate his struggles with sanity. He details his self-doubts, his petty grievances, his deep brooding about his family and life in general, all as a means to keep himself sane.

But people will whisper, and whisper they do. It’s becoming obvious: the Spellmonger has clearly become the Mad Mage of Sevendor!

BRILLIANT

Every book leads to the next and then on to the next linking the story and showing a shadow of what could be in the next one. But this doesn’t offer a shadow but so many things as to prove just as mad as Min himself

Different but Excellent

The style and flow of this book is a completely different take at how and what Min thinks. I was skeptical at first and the length of the book was worrisome, but all in all. It’s a masterpiece of creation and the information bound within it was superb to the last letter.

Love this series!

Forgive the gushing enthusiasm, I don't normally review books. With that said here's what I thought of the book.

This book is a wonderful bridge for the series. I was wondering how he could even possibly make things better. this has got to be by far one of the best short books in here.

The detail of what is going on with mentalin it's just amazing. The plot twist at the end, the information in the middle, the beginning just was all wonderful.

I highly recommend reading this as well as the entire spellmonger series. There's so much in this series that it's hard to find something you would not like!

Beautifully written

Definitely a fulcrum for this wonderful tale.
I had to listen twice because it’s so packed tight.
Artfully done.
Primed and ready for Marshal Arcane.

Spectacular

A deeply enjoyable book that offers great insight in magic the world and Min. I also appreciate the odd bits of humour and the sense of intrigue we get at times. This audiobook reminds me just how excellent the spellmonger series is.

A really well done narration as usual.

Thanks for this audiobook and for its release the same day as the book. I can't wait for the next book.
