Book Description

**The Wizard and the Warlord - The Wardstone Trilogy-Book III** is the gripping conclusion to the epic fantasy trilogy that M. R. Mathias wrote in a Texas prison. This compelling volume brings the elves, dwarves, giants, and the dragons into the story again as our heroes, led by High King Mikahl and the great wizard Hyden Hawk, are forced to fight for the fate of the Kingdoms. This time, they do so against the terrible creature that Gerard Skyler has become, and the legions of demon-beasts that he commands.



From M.R. Mathias,

This is the CONCLUSION to The Wardstone Trilogy. It has taken me several years and a lot of sleepless nights to complete this grand work. I gave it my all, from the moment I put the inkpen to paper in prison, until the day I published Book III. I hope you like it.



You may see some of these characters and locals again, but the story of Claret and mighty Ironspike comes to its magnificent end here. Enjoy, M.R.

After reading all three of the Wardstone novels I find myself wanting more. I love Hyden, Mikahl, and Phen. This is a great fantasy trilogy. Well written and worth every penny. The characters may never leave me

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dramatic and Exciting Finish July 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The conclusion of the Wardstone Trilogy-Book 3- The Wizard and the Warlord provides a dramatic and exciting finish. In MR Mathias style, new characters are introduced and action is fierce and fast paced while beloved characters from the previous two books act to fulfill their destinies. Humor and heartbreak are interwoven themes. We see both heroic actions and desperate actions. Unexpected alliances develop.

Not every character survives and some are permanently wounded. The characters who remain experience some closure and new beginnings in the final chapter of the book. All are forever changed.

I do recommend that people read Books 1 and 2 first, but Mathias does give enough information so one could enjoy this book as a stand alone adventure.

Seeing this grand story end was rewarding, yet I felt sad, too. I wanted the possibility of knowing what happens next to characters I cherished. Perhaps, at some point Mathias will continue the story or write a spin off. I know a trilogy has delivered for me when I am not quite ready to let it go.

5.0 out of 5 stars The final epic battle to end all battles! July 15, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the final story of an exciting trilogy. As usual, Mathias does a great job with his descriptions of this amazing fantasy world full of magical creatures. There are some new characters introduced, like Lady Telgra the beautiful elf who plays a major part in helping the humans fight evil. Though she is much older than Phen, or Marble Boy as he's now called, is it possible she's in love with him?

The city of Xwarda is the scene of the final battle. Abbadon, the Master Warlord vs Sir Hyden Hawk Skyler is an epic battle to end all battles. It's fast paced and gory, just what I've come to expect from Mathias. He does an amazing job of tying the three stories together, reminiscing the words of the cackling fortune teller in book one to Hyden as his little brother Gerard sits beside him. "Some day, you will watch helplessly as one you love dearly attempts to destroy what the one that sits beside you is to become."

MR Mathias's final installment of the Wardstone Trilogy was even better than the first two which in my opinion were some of the better fantasy novels Ive ever read. His growth as an author continues and this book is a testimony to that. My only negative, which is really a positive in disguise, is that I wish he hadn't set forth these books as a trilogy. First of all, this book couldve been two or at least another 250 pages. Its like he felt the need to wrap up everything in this book because he called it a trilogy at the outset. Also, There were a few loose ends that didn't get tied up as neatly as Id like, leaving the reader wanting more but maybe feeling a little jipped too. The crystal Oarly dropped ever going to be seen again for one (not a big spoiler for anything significant)? The riding off into the sunset or towards new adventure...maybe? There is so much more that could happen with these characters. Id for one love to see a future generation continuation using this trilogy as a launching pad. Id rather see this go Feist than go the way of Jim Butchers Codex Alera. Gimme some more!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! September 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished the trilogy and I have to say, this was a really great read. M.R. Mathias is a master at his craft. His characters were off the page real, along with the entire world he created. I will be moving on to his other series and stand-alone stories.

From the Author
The jewel you see glowing in the ring in my old authors photo isn't really a jewel at all. It is the crystallized tear of a real dragon. In my novel "The Royal Dragoneers" you might find the moment where this wonderfully magical tear drop fell from a green dragons eye. It hardened on its way down to land in a mess of troll corpses that the dragon was laying on.

My grandfather died before I was born, but the ring was given to me by my mother, after my grandmother recently died. My grandfather had apparently won it in a poker game near the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma sometime in the early 1900's.

It has been a boon, the magic of the teardrop, for it brought you here to me didn't it? Now treat yourself to something fantastic and try out the free sample of one of my novels. I hope you enjoy the journey. It will be spectacular. Thanks M.R. Mathias
