Ever broadening world gets more & more interesting at each turn of the chapter

This 4th Spellmonger main novel feels more like one of the shorts we’ve been treated to since waiting patiently between Magelord & our latest fix.
Apart from bookend Prologue & Epilogue chapters with Min this book is entirely based around the exploits of our 2 Knight Magi apprentices following their experiences in turn, with Tyndal’s struggle with academia & Rondal’s journey to build enough confidence to get through the boot camps of the warmage college.
After the first half of the book, it develops into a familiar war story fast paced & exciting. Unlike Mancour’s previous novels there is little of the nuggets of daily life in the middle ages we have been spoilt with building the rich tapestry of the world up.
Although not perfect (5 pages in a row of Tyndal trying to coach Rondal on how to woo women come to mind)! Not to mention some huge gaps presumably to set up a whole side series of novelettes both from the boys exploits & backfilling Minalan & the hawkmaidens activities for the year .
It’s great to have another glimpse into the Spellmongers world & I eagerly await the next instalment

Really great story nice to follow some of the other characters in the series. And nice to see what the hero looks like from another perspective. There were a lot of spelling mistakes and I'm dyslectic. But other than that i only felt the ending was rushed. Ad there were some gaps in the story perhaps another short story is on the cards following Tyndall and Rondal as they leave the outpost they established to them founding estassi hall. I know this was a special early release and look forward to reading the next installment even if it is a revised version

What is there to say? Terry Mancour is just THE great writer. Intelligent, inovativ, and supremly blessed wit an imagination, that exceeds all bounds.
I could barely put this book down, as with all the others of his!
He is just a wonderfully giftet writer, and lets not forget his phantastic sence of Humor!

I liked the easy style of the story and how diverse it was. Although no prude I did not like the sexual content, I read for escapism not gratification and it was a bit over done and a little cringeworthy. Apart from that a very good plot.

Excellent read the series goes from strength to strength as all the characters develop. I can't wait for the next one in the series and the minor storylines keep you hooked
