    1. 3.5 stars Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature If someone is offering to sell you a spell that predicts one hour into the future, one excellent way to test whether the spell really works is to try to murder the man selling it to you If you succeed in killing him, clearly it wasn t a valid prophetic spell In any case, that s Leandra Weal s rationale for poisoning the blackrice liqueur she offers to the smuggler selling her the spell Luckily for both Leandra and the smuggler, the spell [...]


    2. While this is the final book in Charlton s trilogy, it can stand very well on its own, with adequate amounts of reminding and jostling of the memory that serve to help readers who haven t reread since the preceding books were released before Charlton began med school, but that do just as well at introducing new readers The magic system is incredibly unique, based around magical texts that compose magic beings, and that magic users can use Prayer creates new magic text that can be used by the sor [...]


    3. This is the last book in a trilogy, but is written with enough reminders from the last 2 books for it stand alone It takes place 30 years after the events from the last book, so it would have been nice to see this expanded from a trilogy to a 4 or 5 book series, which is why I only gave it 4 stars I love the magic system, probably the best I ve seen in a fantasy story yet All magic is a special language that is used by magic users spellwrights and demigods neodemons beings made from up from the [...]


    4. It s really hard to believe that Blake Charlton was in medical school or possibly even doing rotations at the time he was writing this book Does he ever sleep PAY ATTENTION It s deepd unexpected Having been invested in the main characters of the previous two books, I was surprised and a bit disappointed by this final installment or maybe I was just having G.R.R Martin flashbacks so it took me a while to get into it That said, the world is insanely detailed and Blake s mind must be blown by now f [...]


    5. I struggled a little at the beginning of the book I hadn t anticipated the time jump and had expected it to or less directly follow on from Spellbound but found it mostly satisfying once the plot got up and running Leandra is a complicated and at times very unlikable character, interesting to read but also infuriating I did enjoy it, but in the same way Spellbound didn t give me of my favourite elements of Spellwright, this third book didn t give me of my favourite bits from either or the fir [...]


    6. It was great to get a conclusion to the series, and I was impressed at how well the book worked considering I rememberded very little from the first two books.I enjoyed the interesting magic system, the archipelago setting and the premise of trying to solve a murder that you ve been prophesised to commit.


    7. By far my favorite of the series After the second book I wasn t sure if I even wanted to read this one, but I can t just leave things unfinished, and here we are I was expecting a seriously disappointing ending, but Charlton surprised me by giving me a beautiful ending that I loved, without having to struggle through the build up to get there I was surprised many times, and saw a few things coning, which just added to my enjoyment The only flaw I can think of is some errors in spelling, grammar, [...]


    8. It took me a little while to swap in the broad strokes of what had occurred in the series previously, as well as the world the author had built, but the world had moved on after the second book finished The action built up through some plot twists, and other turns, most of them unexpected to a climax that was drawn out and not at all what I expected There wasn t a great deal of resolution, but I can see why there wasn t It was certainly a fascinating way to finish off the series.


    9. So it was a long time ago since i read the two books before this one, but this book stands well alone i think because it caught me up on all the past happenings I love how the spell series system of magic works and it was fun watching the political back and forwards all the characters all do I like how there was a twist or two or three, and although it was a little bit of a slow start up by the end i couldn t put it down.


    10. Wonderful trilogy, but this one Wow I did not know how to feel when it was over Leandra is this narrative s main focus, and she makes so many choices for both good and bad behavior Her limited time and excessive power make for a magnified version of the human experience You just cannot decide if you like or hate her, even at the end.


    11. Charlton definitely saved the best for last with this trilogy From beloved character s epic witty banter to the glorious world of Ixos, I didn t want to put this book down Beautifully written, insightful, and a suspenseful read.


    12. This was good, if a little long I found it harder to like some of the characters in this one, although the story was good, and a fitting conclusion to the trilogy.


    13. BrilliantA style unlike any other, difficult at first to follow the storyline as constantly having to focus on the construct of sentences, but worth it.


    14. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick Dirty High fantasy novel with a complicated magic divinity system that took me a long time to comprehend but after that it was a moving story that will stick with me.Opening Sentence To test a spell that predicts the future, try to murder the man selling it if you can, it can t.The Review Spellbreaker is a high fantasy novel that hooked me in with the first paragraph I liked how ruthless Leandra was when she went up against a smuggler Then the story wane [...]


    15. Shouldn t really say read, but gave up I get that this is a new world, but all the new names of people, places, with their full descriptions buries whatever plot you are trying to follow Frankly don t understand the rave reviews This is no Game of Thrones, where you had people and a fantasy land, accessible.


    16. Just didn t live up to the promise of the first two books I really enjoyed the magic system in the previous installments, but this one just seemed, despite containing the same main character, almost unconnected to the previous works.

    18. Originally posted at archeddoorwayI try not to read or review the last book in a series unless I have already done so for the first, but Spellbreaker by Blake Charlton sounded too good for me to pass up It didn t take much time for me to decide to take a chance and read it, and I can honestly say I m glad that I did.Spellbreaker was a beautifully written, fast paced story that I found difficult to put down once I had picked it up I enjoyed this story much than I honestly expected to and I think [...]


    19. It s really disappointing to get the end of a trilogy and have to write a less than glowing review But while the Spellwright trilogy began with a clever and promising premise and the potential for some real novel world building, it has ended without this things really coming to fruition The protagonists we invested in in the first two installments are relegated to supporting roles in favor of a new character who never really garners our support There s nothing likable or noble about her to inves [...]

    21. Full review available at Worlds in InkSpellbreaker is a compelling read with a unique magic system, captivating characters, impeccable worldbuilding and the ability to surprise you with its emotional impact and insight into the human condition While the last book in the trilogy, it can be read as a standalone novel provided you don t mind being somewhat baffled at first and of course you ll lose out on the full weight of the backstory.


    22. In this series I liked how the three books formed their separated stories while still being part of the Whole In this third part the story takes on a completely new form with new parts of the magic and another main character.I also liked how the story got a clear ending which wasn t completely what was expected.This story gets 4 out of 5 stars from me


    23. I had passed by the first book in the series at the library several times, but when I saw the book jacket for this one in the new book section, it looked so good I decided to check out the first book and this one both This one felt too big, like it was trying to put together too much And then it ended kind of abruptly.


    24. Extreme time jump from where book 2 left off made it puzzling at first The extremely convoluted magic diety system and shift in characters made it difficult to get into Not as enjoyable as the previous two books, but still good.


    25. I liked this book but it was paced strangely and not entirely satisfying, especially as the close to a trilogy I d like to go back and read the first one again, though.And, as before, one of the most interesting magic systems I ve read, which is high praise


    26. I received this book through a contest and immediately I went out and purchased the first two Though still early on I m very impressed It is already becoming a new favorite of the authors and books I ve read this year I ll post when I ve finished the book.


    27. This book definitely kept my interest The pacing is good, and the author does well with action I had a hard time with some of the characters feeling cliche or a little one sided, but overall an entertaining book.


    28. Didn t finish Guess I m done with this series Not sure why it resonated less than the previous books with me Maybe I had just spend enough time in that universe



    29. This is a really great story I have always been fascinated by words and language and this talented author has woven a magical tale that thrills the imagination Wonderous and magnificent
