loved it

A great addition to the spellmonger series with some interesting insights into some episodes that are referenced in the books but which Mancour builds upon and finesses in this book. I'm totally committed to the story and just love the direction that some of the mythology is taking. John Lee's performance is amazing, with his accents and vocal characterisation bring all these characters to life. I can't wait for the next book and want to thank Mr Mancour for keeping me enthralled and delightfully distracted from all the rubbish and darkness that is going on at the moment.

As epic as the writers name

So there is no doubt that if you love the series then you will love this book.

While it may not be a main line book I can happily say that the quality and story's told far outshine some of the previous books.

Why is this book so much better then some of the others?

Well let's start of with the fact that each of the short stories are well written, fun and help to build the world that has been created.

In my opinion there 2 types of people that read these kind of books . first, those that love a self contained story that is about a few characters but don't want to see the world of the book. The second is people like myself, those that love to see a world grow and to know how that world works.

This book is for those that want to see more of the story's world. I hope Terry writes more like this one because they always make me extremely happy. Maybe we could even see a short story set before the main books about the new horizon.

To Terry, as always you did awesome. Don't let peoples nasty comments about the book get you down. You did an awesome job on this one.

Another place holder

This book feels like an author going back in time to wrangle another book from already dead story material.

His last 2 books have done nothing to further the storyline.

It is almost as if the publisher had said “I need another book from you” and the author has panicked and thrown together some c grade material just to meet a deadline.

I don’t mind authors going back in time to fill in back-story as long as it helps the narrative or fills in some blanks but this doesn’t do that. They are just poorly written and pointless side stories.

well worth the listen

I loved this and I was a skeptic at first. all the other characters, and groups, in the series have their own stories to tell and it makes for a much richer experience. definitely a book I'd recommend people to read.

Fantastic addition to the series

Be sure to listen in the correct order!!

Google will give you what you need, but I would advise not going past book 3 without buying this first

An excuse to abuse minors

The moment that the author shows the abuse of minors. It’s simply a torrid affirmation of tendencies already suggested but never confirmed

you know why you're here

Either you've stumbled on this book and don't know the Series, or you've listened to every book in the series and just need a bump to get you to the Arcanist release.

If the former, listen to the core series first, the stories here may spoil things but definitely add context in hindsight.
If the latter, just give them your credit already, why are you even reading this.

Mancour & Lee Never Disappoint!

I appreciate getting the back story, connecting dots between storylines and characters getting fleshed out, so I throughly enjoyed this anthology. While an author has much more leeway than a movie script writer, an author still can’t include every scene and sidelight that occurs during the writing process. Some of those are the beginnings of new books, but some “end up on the cutting room floor”. I enjoyed it Terry Mancour, and thank you John Lee for adding that additional zing of magic only an accomplished narrator can give to a well developed fantasy world.

What a wonderful world!

I believe this anthology could stand alone, though the richness of knowing the background and context of these stories cannot be understated!

Leaves one hungry for more

This definitely fills in the gaps between Warmage and Magelord, and the missing parts from Magelord. My favorites were The Spellmongers Wedding, Victory Soup, and The Road to Sevendor, though The Ugliest Maid in Castal had me laughing at my desk at work. The sardonic wit, clevar conversation, and detailed plot not only reveals more of the Spellmonger world, but reintroduces us to the beloved characters. And the cliffhanger at the end makes me more hungry than ever for Arcanist. October 1st can't come any sooner!

skip!

short stories a long long periode back in the timeline. normally the story continues in An exciting fashion. this trip back in time to tell some unimportant chapters is, imho, very unwelcome.
performance was good as ever.

Random crap lying around compiled into a book!

This book reminds me of a band that has a successful album and then later releases the tracks that didn't make the album. For superfans this is awesome, but everyone else is like I see why they didn't make the original album. I actually thought the stories themselves were pretty good, but they are so far out of context that I couldn't really get into it. These would have been a great prolog at the end of a book or as an interlude during a book, but just mashing them together in their own book is pretty unenjoyable. It just made me wish I had bought book 12 and continued the main story. If you are a superfan definitely get this book as it give some side details, but otherwise take it or leave it.
