Enthralling and exciting fantasy,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spellmonger (The Spellmonger Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
Spellmonger is a great story. It's a first person fantasy firmly centred on the protagonist, Minalan, a semi-retired warmage who spends his days helping out rustic locals. Suddenly, all hell breaks loose and Minalan finds himself once more flung into bloody war.
The biggest single strength of the book is a certain something which makes Minalan both thoroughly engaging and very likeable. Terry Mancour also does a great job blending the fantastical surroundings of the world with a sense of realism from the people within it.
It must be said that a little more time spent checking would've been helpful. Every book has the odd typo but there are quite a few in here, as well as some formatting errors (extra indents). It detracts slightly from an otherwise excellent story, and I'll definitely be buying Warmage (the sequel) in the near future.
