I trusted Auric the most of the three men since the story starts with him coming home and facing more changes than he expected. Him and his father do not get along and Rill is desperate to have peace between them. When Auric's father goes missing into the Fey land, everything changes for the siblings and Jericho. They encounter unicorns, a dragon, a creepy and strange mist, and other dangerous creatures in their quest.
I wasn't sure what kind of spells would be in the story, but even though I didn't fully understand them, they definitely keep things interesting!
"Settle down!" he snapped. Look, I know you want to get to him. I do, too, but you have to consider this might be a trap." Every time I see a line like that, I think of Star Wars :)
Even though I didn't connect with the story until halfway through, I was very pleased with how things work out and the Fey land was described perfectly. I could almost smell the lilacs. I also loved how this family does everything possible to protect one another and refuses to leave anyone in danger! Didn't like the uncle at all, but even he served an important purpose to the story. The writing is brilliant and the banter made me laugh more than once, the plot took me for a surprise but in a good way.
With thanks to the author for the eARC provided, the thoughts and comments are my own.
The characters are engaging. Burke has an excellent grasp of using dialogue for characterization. The plot is an interesting twist of inter-realm dependency and travel versus the half-fae savior of the world.
While I didn't guess every twist (kudos to the author for that), I did shake my head at some of the harrowing escapes and almost-too-good-to-believe saves. Although it isn't a YA book, it is perfectly appropriate for that audience.
A few problems: sudden changes of heart for most of the characters without adequate build-up and the incredible power of a relatively novice magic user once in a different realm (and while explained by the circumstances it still seemed like a reach).
I'll be thrilled to read the next installment. Burke is one of those authors whose writing improves with every book and who isn't afraid to push beyond genre expectations.
If you like sarcastic characters, unlikely heroes and major magical intrigue, you'll want to read this book.
Auric was definitely my favorite character from the very beginning. Shoot, I think he's actually elbowed (or magicked) his way onto my mental list of favorite book boys. He's a delightful blend of arrogance, insecurity and booknerd. Not sure how H.L. Burke managed it, but she did, ha.
Anyway, I loved the story and am waiting anxiously for book 2.
Author H.L. Burke displays J.K Rowling worthy creativity and pairs it with Jane Austen worthy wit and wisdom like that of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien, all while maintaining her own wonderfully unique voice.
This is a story like none I have ever read before and is one I will read over and over again.
Women will relate to the lead female.
Powerful, clever, beautiful and virtuous Rill skillfully holds her own amidst two dynamic male heroes.
Men will recognize themselves in male leads, Auric and Jericho, both of whom are their own special brand of brilliant.
These handsome heroes are courageous, industrious, determined, and utterly loveable despite their flaws.
Engaging from the first page all the way through to the end, SPELLSMITH AND CARVER is impossible to put down.
The mystical elements are delightful and the characters' captivating quest is an adventure I will always remember.
The skill with which Burke combines elements of fantasy, mystery, romance and adventure to create a spellbinding tale [the ending of which is pure magic!] has me quite convinced that Burke herself is a wizard!
