About the Author
Anton Strout is the author of the Spellmason Chronicles, including Stonecast and Alchemystic, and the Simon Canderous series including Dead Waters, Dead Matter, Deader Still, and Dead to Me.

He currently works in the exciting world of publishing and yes, it is as glamorous as it sounds.

(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review)
A fitting end to the Spellmason Chronicles, INCARNATE wraps up all my issues from STONECAST and surprises me with an ending I didn't even know I wanted. Full of great characters, lots of action, and even some touching moments, INCARNATE has everything a good urban fantasy novel should have.
One of my favorite parts of the Spellmason Chronicles has always been Lexi's relationships with her friends. Rory and Marshall are well developed characters, not just cut-out best friends. Their genuine caring for Lexi, and the bond all three of them have is something that makes this series stand out. Marshall's geeky references and Rory's sarcastic quips don't hurt, either.
My other favorite aspect of the series is the originality. Gargoyles and alchemy are not common urban fantasy elements, and the combination of the too is interesting. The aftermath of the creation of so many gargoyles around Manhattan is a great subject for the book to deal with, even bringing in police. We don't often see the moment that magic is revealed to the world in books - usually we see it hidden or we see after the revelation. Strout's imagining of how it would be if magic was revealed is a fun mental exercise.
Overall, INCARNATE is a great way to end the Spellmason Chronicles. Action-packed and never slowing down for a moment, the conclusion will satisfy readers who have been with Lexi since the beginning. Though the romance storyline falters near the middle, the final match-up is surprising and just what Lexi needs. All in all, a great series closer.
Lexi is also trying to sort out her feelings for the men in her life. And the possibility of a pendant that could mean a future for her and Stanis gives her a clearer mind.
Incarnate is a fast-paced and thrilling finale to a great, fantasy trilogy. Though I’ll miss the characters, the storylines and overlying arc are wrapped up nicely. Always full of surprises, this was an enjoyable read that was suspenseful and dramatic. The climactic ending doesn’t disappoint. And this trilogy will always make me wish I lived in a city that had old buildings with gargoyles decorating the rooftops.
