Format: Paperback
After finishing the entire novel, I reread the synopsis for this book, I have to say that it does not cover the half of what this book is actually about. To me, this book was a journey, not just for Carin, but for all the characters. When you first meet the characters, you think that you know them and their story, but trust me, you don't.

There are really only six characters throughout the whole book, with the main focus being on Carin and Lord Verek. I felt a whirlwind of emotions as I read this book as I could never decide whether I loved or hated each character. Each character is hiding something and as more and more about them was revealed, the more confused I felt as to what their true motives were. Whilst this was kind of annoying, it kept me on my toes and willed me to keep reading so that I could find out exactly what each character's history was. At the end of Book 1, I can't say that I know that much more about each character as everything that I've learnt has led to a million more questions, which I assume will be answered in the following novels. The character's are so compelling and you never know what to expect from them or what they're capable of which makes this book all the more exciting.

What I found most interesting was the integration of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There. It was interesting to have a well known and well loved story from our world woven into this fantasy tale. This book is written in a language that is foreign to Lord Verek, but for reason's currently unknown, Carin is able to decipher it. It is for this reason that Lord Verek decides to take Carin in, though we are unsure as to whether this is for her safety or imprisonment.

Thank you to the author for the copy of this book for review.

Drawn into the schemes of an angry wizard, Carin glimpses the place she once called home. It lies upon a shore that seems unreachable. To learn where she belongs and how to get there, the teenage traveler must decipher the words of an alien book and follow the clues in a bewitched poem.

This was an extremely well written fantasy story, with an easy to read and likeable heroine at its heart. Carin travels North to find out where she belongs and inadvertantly stumbles onto the land of Lord Verek...initially hostile he eventually becomes intrigued by her and so the adventure begins.

Carin is a strong and independant character who can look after herself - one aspect of the book I enjoyed very much. The enigmatic Lord Verek is a perfect foil and the story flows well with a very readable style that holds your interest throughout.

This is very much Part One - it is NOT a standalone book...I would liken it to a serial television series - this being episode one where we get to meet the characters, find out a little bit about them and where you are given some information about what their "quest" will be.

The world building is solid and intriguing, the magical aspects well drawn and versatile and characterisation is energetic so that you are immediately invested in their future. The ending with its wonderful cliffhanger will ensure that you read on... All in all a marvellous additon to the fantasy genre and I would recommend it for lovers of magical mystical tales.

Happy Reading Folks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great start to a series! 16 Sept. 2013
By Momto4BookLover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book would be great for anyone who loves a TRUE fantasy story!
Although it is definitely not so much of an "in your face" fantasy romance, the elements are all there and I am sure the romance part will develop more in the second and third book.

There are only a few characters, but they are well rounded.
Carin KNOWS she doesn't belong where she is, but the problem is she doesn't know WHERE she belongs. In her trek North she runs into Lord Varek.
He is more than concerned with how she got through his many enchantments that protect his land. That concern turns to curiosity when he learns that only she can read his *puzzle book*.

The only problem I had is the beginning started a little slow. However, that really wasn't a problem once you got going. Soon the book is done and you can't wait to read the second!
Which leads to the only other problem people might have. The cliffhanger at the ending. I personally don't mind cliffhangers, ESPECIALLY when the next book is out.

Overall a solid five stars. Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Fantasy 20 Aug. 2013
By Beck Digs It - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you enjoy getting completely absorbed in another world, then you'll love the Waterspell series. At first I thought I had a handle on the setting, but then there was a huge twist. (But I won't give it away.) My only negative comment is that I didn't realize it would be a cliff-hanger. But if you enjoy a long, involved story, then you will absolutely love reading the whole trilogy.

I really loved the main characters, particularly because they are complicated - not cookie-cutter at all. I also enjoyed the writing. It is stylized perfectly to the story, so you feel you are in the Waterspell world. I definitely recommend these books!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Imaginative Fantasy Trilogy 31 Aug. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A stranger and I were talking about books at a poetry meeting. He recommended the WATERSPELL series. I finished the first book, THE WARLOCK, one night and the next morning. I immediately ordered the remaining two books in the series, THE WYSARD, and THE WISEWOMAN.

Each book was imaginative, entertaining, and much more than just a delightful read. Characters came alive on the pages and the story kept me guessing about what would happen next. WATERSPELL is a Trilogy I recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intelligent, fascinating and impossible to put down 29 Jun. 2013
By Pamramadama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I suggest you start reading Warlock only when you have the time to really enjoy it ... it's nearly impossible to put down!

From the first page, it pulls you into a rich, well-drawn and intriguing world populated by equally intriguing characters. Oh yes, it's also impossible to read just this one. You might as well get all three in the series and, like me, you will then be hoping for a book 4.
