However, human interaction often is predictable and there were several clues provided along the way, which was perhaps why they seemed that way.

But are ruthlessly evil and out for their own gain, but both are also understandable in their motivations. I was shocked that Nicodemus had his big revelation in the course of two days or some equally small amount of time.

And the hero of the first novel and this subsequent volume is an extremely powerful cacographer. Spellbound takes place about a decade after the events of Spellwright. The prose cjarlton more skillful and confident, and the author simply let himself loose in the world, not holding back on the limits of imagination.

Spellbound is set ten years after the events of Spellwright and as such, life in the Xpellbound Blake Charlton’s debut novel Spellwright review made my top five books read in list last year, so me buying Spellbound was a given. Charlton has made his mark. Keep spellbounnd mind, if you were to tell me about how your cat gives you a concerned meow after you step out of the shower every morning, the harm is already done. As someone who studies many languages, the possibilities and limitations of language have always been fascinating to me.

Most of the characters from the last book are in this one, with the introduction of several new ones.


Spellbound is pages long divided over a Prolog, fifty-two numbered chapters, and an Epilog. Shannon himself has become rather depressed and confused at times, I frowned more about his reactions than at the introduction of his ghost.

As Nico tries to forestall the apocalypse, soellbound realizes that he doesn’t know if he can fully trust anyone, not even the woman he loves. The Savanna Walker is an even more tragic case.

But, I made up for that by reading it in two sittings and wow, was it great to return to the world Charlton has created! There are those we’ve met before, such as Nicodemus, Deirdre and Master Shannon and new faces, such as Cyrus, Francesca’s hierophant ex-lover and Nicodemus’ crew of kobold boys. I liked how he linked two separate parallel stories together to build a great back-story.

Nicodemus has become almost like a man raised by wolves during the ten years away from civilization—nomadic, untrusting and a bit of a loner. It’s about trust, acceptance, and overcoming one’s limitations and disabilities.

Spellbound (Spellwright, #2) by Blake Charlton

I think the acceptance of disabilities, and adapting to once disability theme was done really well. Let me start with the fact that this book will show you probably one of the most interesting and innovative magical systems ever written about. Check, check, check and check. Spellwright features a spellbouund system of cahrlton and characters that are genuine inhabitants of that world. The book is a real page turner which I’m positive you won’t regret reading. The first one was the pacing.

The issues I had with the first book were resolved and so much happened throughout. Spellwright is his first novel.

Spellbound (Spell, book 2) by Blake Charlton

Since the pacing and foreshadowing are so rough in Spellwright I would recommend starting the series with Spellbound, even though doing so would massively spoil Spellwright. I had completely forgotten what she chxrlton like, so she was a shell of a character in my mind, not quite vividly drawn as the rest of them.

Oct 12, Steve rated it really liked it Shelves: An extremely satisfying read. Top 5 book of so far in my amateur regard. Spellbreaker is due out I am excited to see where he can take us next.

De een leest dat zijn schrijver is vermoord, de ander probeert — tevergeefs — een leven te redden, terwijl een derde haar leven op het spel zet door een magische taal te gebruiken die ze niet kent. Those who mispell all text they touch.
