Reviews Charmcaster (Spellslinger #3)

  • Dreximgirl
    I honestly cannot express how much I adore this series. The characters are so engaging and brilliant, the story is complex but so well written and I swear Reichis just gets more and more badass with every book. This book had me running the gauntlet of all emotions from laughing out loud to sobbing like a baby. We learn more about Ferius and Kellen grows so much - my heart is actually broken for him. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next one. ...

    4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum more, we join our protagonists the exiled mage Kellen, his Argosi mentor Ferius, and the unhinged squirrel cat Reichis on a road trip to their next destination in this third installment of the Spellslinger series. Building upon the events of the first two books, Charmcaster takes us out of the desert and into the land of Gitabria, where our characters are hoping to tra...

    As always this review can also be found on my blog The Tattooed Book Geek: https://thetattooedbookgeek.wordpress...I won a copy of this book through Readers First.Starting six months after the ending of the previous book, Shadowblack (which you really need to have read). Charmcaster finds Kellen, Reichis and Ferius traversing a desert on their way to Gitabria. However, as is often the case for Kellen and crew things aren’t going according to pl...

    Začátek byl úplně peckovní a Reichis je pořád topka. Čekala jsem, že mě ty jeho kecy o pojídání očních bulv a trhání uší už přestanou bavit, ale ne. Celkově to nebylo úplně epické, ale příběh je fajn – akce, nové postavy a tajemství. Kellen se dost posunul, líbí se mi jak postupně přidává nové triky a začíná být celkem badass, i když často tak trochu omylem.

    Sebastien de Castell did it again.I flew through this. It only took me 3 sessions of a couple hours at a time. A perfect way to spend a couple of days off.
  • Paul
    Who'd have thought you could become so fond of a thieving, foul mouthed squirrel cat. To the point where theres a bit of dust in the corner of my eye (definitely not getting emotional!)The series gets better edition to editiom and holds no punches.And the ending is crazy
  • Shree143
    This is by far the best work in this series.I absolutely loved it and Sebastien de Castell just became one of my favorite author, right along with legends of this genre.
  • imyril
    Another solid romp with Kellen and friends. I liked this a good deal more thanShadowblack - perhaps because Kellen was so distracted by matters in hand he had no time to be distracted by his hormones; perhaps for the return of key characters to make his life hell; perhaps for its emotional focus on friendship and family. Expect more mayhem, more wonder and more Argosi.Full reviewI received a free copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest ...

    It's been awhile since I needed more pages to a book. I didn't realize I had come to the last page...I need book 4 now.

    Again a solid 5-star read. Halfway through I wasn't completely sure about it, but then it got SO. GOOD. And intense. But mostly fricking good. Is it October yet?

    "Let the meanderings of other lives pass you by, kid"* * * 3 / 5Charmcaster is the third book in the Spellslinger series. I thought it was an improvement on Shadowblack, but not as good as Spellslinger. Like Shadowblack, Charmcaster has an episodic feel to it which was fun, and I loved the slow development of Kellen's character and the introduction of more Argosi.words only let you describe the details of things, but not the deeper truths behind...
  •  Charlie - A Reading Machine
    It’s apt this book is called Charmcaster because it is the first book in the series to completely pull me in. The characters, who I once found contrary and confusing, have taken root in my head and my heart, the world has grown and blossomed becoming bigger than I imagined and the protagonist’s journey from a completely inept victim of circumstance to someone who has wrestled some control over his life is showing signs of being a fruitful one...
  • Sean
    This was such a good read.3rd in the series that has had me hooked from the beginning.I know it is primarily for YA readers,but who cares,it is brilliant.Thoroughly entertaining and exhilarating read that keeps you looking for more.Now onto book 4.
  • Mitriel
    I continue enjoying this series. Great characterisation, carefully plotted story-lines, rich imagination -it’s ticking all the right boxes.

    Dawww the squirrel cat is becoming more than just a dick! 🤣🤣🤣🤣 Freaking love this series and IT INCLUDED A DRAGON so automatically becomes cooler. Can't wait for Soulbinder to come out in a few months

    Review taken from www.centersquareblog.comBook 3 of the Spellslinger Series has arrived and it is just beautiful to look at. This is book 3 of aplanned 6 book series. The covers of all three hardcover books in the series are fantastic! I know I keep saying it but there are times when I pick a book solely based on the cover. This would easily be one of those times. I do not think I could walk past this in a UK bookstore and have it not catch my ey...

    I love this series so much, the way it's written just sounds like a person who loves and enjoys writing! This one was a real rollercoaster too! I can't wait for the next one and I will always recommend this series to everyone!
  • Rebecka
    Charmcaster by Sebastien de Castell is the third book in his Spellslinger series of young adult fantasy novels. As such, this review will likely contain spoilers for the previous two books, Spellslinger, and Shadowblack. As with these, Charmcaster follows Kellen, a Jan’Tep spellslinger, cast out by his people, with a price on his head. It is narrated in first person, entirely from his perspective. As such, we get to learn how he sees the world,...

    I shall manage to make a review short! I shall!Kellen is still running from his country and the price on his head. He meets an old friend. He goes with Ferius to a new country. They are still following the lead from the bad guys in the previous books.More books are coming and to be honest, I want to know about the shadowblack! Is he gonna go bad? I wish we would get more about that.Still they are light, amusing and short. Win win.Conclusion:Fun Y...

    I LOVED this book!!!! I have been really enjoying this series and it just keeps getting better! I was crying at at least 3 different parts of the story. Just BAM Out of nowhere I had all the feels! Honestly just great! I can't wait for the next one!
  • Colin Hardy
    The author's writing does not stumble; from the opening to its conclusion, this is a rollickingly good read. At the end of each book, the reader is left wanting more. There are twists and turns galore; the only one that was obvious was the identity of the red mage, but I can live with one slip. The writing style remains very tight with a highly structured plot that migrates seamlessly from one event to the next. The strong characterization is at ...

    **4.4/5 Stars** Another very good addition to this series!! I really want to give every book of this series 5 stars because they're:1) So easy-flowing, easy to read and addictive… 2) The physical books are simply a great overall experience: to look at, to feel, as well as to read through - the text back/fore edge is the same colour as the front cover, i.e. orange!!! I mean how many books have that? Nevertheless, I couldn’t bring myself to giv...
  • Markéta
    Fajn, tohle byla zatím nejlepší kniha v sérii.Konečně se to pořádně rozjíždí, v sázce je víc, než kdy předtím, a z toho Kellena ještě vyroste něco hodně zajímavého.Pamatujete na Nephenii? Tu holku ze Spellslingera, která nakonec skončila jen jako dívka, která na konci políbila statečného hrdinu? Neph je zpátky a boi, tohle jsem nečekala. Ten název, Charmcaster? Tipněte si, kdo to asi je. (Doufám, že to není sp...

    9.3/10I've said it before in my reviews and I'll say it again, I read for enjoyment.When I pick up a book primarily I want to be entertained.And DAMN are these books entertaining. Fast paced and action packed with great characters and humour sprinkled throughout. I've enjoyed each one.BUT in this third book did I really feel the emotions, maybe through spending more and more time with the characters maybe I'm stone hearted and it's taken this lon...

    Thank you to Netgalley, Sebastien De Castell and Bonnie Zaffre for my arc of Charmcaster. Publication Date: 17th May 2018 Oh how happy I am to be back in the world of Kellen, Ferius and Reichis! I stumbled upon this series last year when the first book Spellslinger was on offer in Asda. I've been hooked ever since. I'm so glad Charmcaster ended the way it does as it guarantees there will be another book in this series and I can't wait! Plus the c...

    5 stars don’t even do this justice. I love this series by far all time my favourite. I can’t do anything but blubber and gush over this one! I love the characters and this book left me hurting and smiling and desperate for more!! Genius!!
