Editorial Reviews

Review

"Not a word wasted or out of place. Strong, compelling, intriguing, taut. A real pleasure to read such mature, competent writing." -Judge, SouthWest Writers Contest, Science Fiction/Fantasy Novel

"Fresh. I really liked the relationship that was being set up between Carin and Verek." -Judge, Frontiers in Writing Contest

From the Back Cover


    Lord Verek looked at her with something peculiar in his gaze.
    "It's late," he said. "You and I must speak of many things, before this journey's done, but tonight you should rest--for we'll be off on the morrow before the sun is over the world's edge." He canted his head. "Pray favor me, however, with a bit of thought in that nimble brain of yours, and consider the words I spoke to you today. As the sleeper shuts the window against the fiends of night, and the gateman hoists the drawbridge in the enemy's face, you may be called to like service. Think on what I say."
    The wizard strode to the door and was gone. Carin barred it behind him, then stripped to her skin for another night between smooth sheets.
    Sleep did not come easily, however, on top of a cold, greasy meal and Verek's odd speech. His words echoed in her mind. Why did the warlock speak so pointedly of evil things crawling through the night, as though he wished to fill her dreams with frights?
    The last misty notion in Carin's head, before sleep nudged it away, was a vague impression of a wobbly rope bridge--its near end anchored to the side of a mountain, its far reaches seeming to float on a mirror-smooth ocean--with an army of demons and firedrakes, corpse-candles and creeping horrors, massed on that far shore and making ready to cross.

More About the Author

I began as a journalist, or at least that's what I got my degree in. After college, I worked for a newspaper, then as a magazine editor and feature writer. These days I earn my living as a freelance editor for a national nonprofit organization. I've written three award-winning books of history and biography. I'm a member of The Authors Guild. My newest work is a fantasy, WATERSPELL, an intricate, multi-layered trilogy about a girl and the wizard who suspects her of being so dangerous to his world, he believes he'll eventually have to kill her ... which poses a problem for him, since he's fallen in love with her. My married name, and a name I've sometimes been published under, is Deborah Lightfoot Sizemore.

The characters and the complexity of the story continue to develop.

I just finished reading the first book of this series a few days ago and couldn't wait to get started on book number two.

I thought the first ended a bit abrupt, however, it was a great ending.

I just finished reading the first book of this series a few days ago and couldn't wait to get started on book number two. Especially after the ending of book one!

This book is even better then the fist, and a great example of why I love a great series. I love getting to know the characters and following their journey from book to book.

With the first book there was a lot of world building building (understandably so). This book had a lot more character information. My favorite character, Lord Varek is still hard to figure out, but I love him all the more for it. I can't wait for book number three!

If you love epic fantasy you will LOVE this series.
Highly recommend.

*I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*

I read The Warlock and The Wysard one after the other over the course of the weekend. Because the second is a continuation of the first, I'm not going to separate them for this review. These books are what I consider high or epic fantasy. While the character's age could technically put this series in the YA or New Adult category, I think these books read more like traditional adult fantasy.

I have to admit, I enjoyed the second book quite a bit more than the first. Perhaps because the author delves further into the characters themselves, and less in the world building. Creating a fantasy world from nothing is no easy task, but I've always been drawn more to characters than to lyrical descriptions of a fantasy world. For me characters make or break the story. No matter how beautiful the world is, if the characters fall short of expectations, I won't like the novel.

That said, I found the warlock Theil Verek to be fascinating; he is the type of character that would make me plow through book after book just to learn more about him. With main character Carin, I went through bouts of liking her, then disliking her, and then back to liking her. She grew so much, from a distrusting girl to an admirable woman in the course of the first two books. Myra, the housekeeper, drove me to distraction. Had I been forced to reside with that woman, I would've worn ear plugs 24/7 to drone out her incessant squawking. (Maybe I liked the 2nd book better since she was absent for much of it). The Woodsprite was about as annoying as Myra, but I did like him much better.

The imagery is beautiful. Lightfoot does an excellent job immersing us in her fantasy world.

The next book of this series was just as good if not better than the first! The evolving relationships keep you wanting more and more. I couldn't wait to get to the next book!

I love this book! It's a well-written gem, and the series increasingly entertains as the story progresses. I also admire the author's originality, in that I cannot label this book as "predictable".

I enjoyed the second in this series even more than the first. The end of it takes us somewhere completely different and I'm eagerly awaiting the next installment. This is a series not to miss.
