Wow, this was such a fun read! It has great characters with wonderful chemistry, a fast-moving plot with short easy chapters, and some very fun fight scenes. I loved the Western feel to this book and I can't wait to pick up the rest of this series.

It's one of the best book I've read this year.
I truly loved it and I can't wait to catch the other books (here in Italy are available this and the second one only, in case I will read them in english).
I'm totally hooked up by this universe and Sebastien de Castell is a great storyteller.
He put a spell on me with the first sentence 😍
Highly recommended!! ❤❤

This was so much fun and an entertaining read from page 1. Now I totally get it why this series is so popular. Can't wait to continue reading ☺️

imyril It‘s just so much fun, and I love how conscious it becomes of the prejudices in its world building - and how becoming aware of them plays into Kellen growing up over the series. 3y

Sorry I‘ve been MIA with migraines. This week I‘ve re-listened to the Spellslinger series. I‘ve enjoyed it more this time around. Still haven‘t listen to the final book in the series that was released in December. I thought book 5 Queenslayer was the final book.

wanderinglynn Oh no! I hope you‘re feeling better. Migraines suck! 💚 3y
Panic70 Thank you @wanderinglynn I‘m used to getting them often but I‘ve only had a few good days the last two months. At this point I‘m trying anything. I should find an old potions books. 😂 3y
Texreader So sorry you‘ve been feeling so badly. I‘ve not had a great year myself with my chronic back problems and newly diagnosed thyroid problems. So so difficult. I look forward to meeting you and commiserating! 3y
Panic70 @Texreader Sorry you‘ve not had a great year either. Thank goodness for books! I would lose my ever loving mind if I couldn‘t listen to books right now. Limiting my screen time, and very light sensitive. I can‘t wait to meet up! We can have a going Nowhere Litsy secret club. 😁 3y

This is a story about a boy named Kellen who tries to find his magic but can't seem to find it throughout the story we learn of friendships being tested and betrayals of family and then discovering who you really are and who you want to be.

Well not everything is pictured here but I‘ve read 41 books in August which is ridiculously awesome. I binged The Selection series on audio which isn‘t pictured as are a couple others.
Here‘s my breakdown:
* 25 library books * 11 graphic novels
* 4 review books
* 10 physical TBR books
* 20 audiobooks
Very hard to pick a favorite but I‘m looking forward to reading more of the Spellslinger series next month.

Sadly it is high time I return them to the library. If I‘m lucky they‘ll have found book 5 for me. The sixth and final book will be out later this year. Maybe I‘ll just have to buy a full set for our non-existent spare shelf space. 😬😆

Leniverse @julesG Yes! Great fun. Both my daughter and I love them. And they've been translated into multiple languages so you might find them in German for your son. They're on the young side of YA. But you want to read them too. They have the best animal sidekick! A thieving, murderous squirrel cat with an attitude. 😁 4y

Mehso-so

Torn on this one, and not just because it‘s the first in what appears to be a series of six books (I think four are out). There‘s magic and intrigue but sometimes it feels like it took too long to get anywhere. I liked the end and figure I‘ll try the second to see how it goes.

Lucy_Anywhere The series gets better and better, I promise! 4y

When your child has a towering TBR and is going to spend the Easter break making a good dent in it but gets sidetracked by a pretty cover that turns out to be the first in a long series, and it is so good she tells you to put aside your own, even more towering, TBR and read this series - right now!

Totally enjoyed this fun magical world where our hero has no magic and survives by his wits - and gets sharper as things progress. The tone is humorous and the dialogue quick but there are big secrets and serious fight scenes. And his squirrel cat sidekick is a wonderfully grumpy kick in the pants - no fuzzy familiar here! Already grabbed the next book in the series - the ending was not too cliffhangery but totally set up for more adventures!

Eyelit Love that cover and the story sounds awesome! 5y

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!

The magic, politics, mystery, backstabbing, selfish acts, dialogue--everything was amazing. The magic was particularly cool and I lived that the main character wasn't just hiding all his powers and they are unlocked and he becomes the savour thing. It's so refreshing. The elder roles are played by 2 HILARIOUS women with some killer dialogue and wisdom.

I'm also a sucker for hidden family secrets so this was killer!

Another one I bought fully based on the cover and it's only a duology so not a big take on if I do want to continue the series.
Unfortunately, I can't seem to find a physical copy anywhere but Book Depository so I thought I'd try the audiobook and decide if it's worth the month wait for delivery of it and the sequel.

Received a copy to review. A fun and quick read for me, though the character who describes the POV character as callow ain't kidding. Also, his family structure is just abusive and killed me a little.
