Praise for the Spellslinger Series
A bucket-load of tension is offset with humour, power struggles, lots of magic and some great characters. Fantasy junkies will devour with relish.
Spellslinger is the start of something truly special. Sebastien de Castell is a master of breakneck pacing, dagger-sharp dialogue, and twists you didn’t see coming–and this series has it all.
This book is dangerously addictive. It has it all: compelling world-building, breathtaking plot-twists, a page-turning pace, and characters who soon feel like old friends. I can’t wait for the next one!
Exotic, original and gripping from the get-go, Spellslinger is a must-read.
Hugely enjoyable - fast-paced, compassionate, wise and with terrific characters.
Written with such obvious joy and brio that it demands to be read.
A fun, fast-moving adventure, with surprising depth and insight.
“One of the best young-adult novels I’ve seen in a long time – larky, clever and slick.”
