Two brothers find a magic ring and start on paths to becoming the most powerful sort of enemies, while an evil young sorceress unwillingly falls in love with one of them when he agrees to help her steal a dragon's egg for her father. Her father just happens to be the Royal Wizard, and despite his daughter's feelings, he would love nothing more than to sacrifice the boy!
All of these characters, along with the Wolf King of Wildermont, the Lion Lord of Westland, and a magical hawk named Talon, are on a collision course toward Willa the Witch Queen's palace in the distant kingdom of Highwander. There the very bedrock is formed of the powerful magical substance called Wardstone.
Who are the heroes? And will they get there before the Royal Wizard and his evil hordes do?
Whatever happens, the journey will be spectacular, and the confrontation will be cataclysmic.
If you took every major epic fantasy that has ever been written and twisted them all into one fantastic tale of magic, sword play and just plain old fantasy fun, you might get the first half of this monster of a read. The last half is a climax so thrilling that words can't even describe it. This is what fantasy fans have been waiting for...
THE WIZARD AND THE WARLORD is the concluding Book 3 in the trilogy and in the stance of this review the entire trilogy should be read in order of writing - it is so much more fun and more powerful that way. The plot as a stand alone book brings the reader to a gripping conclusion. And the author summarizes is most appropriately - 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. You may see some of these characters and locals again, but the story of Claret and mighty Ironspike comes to its magnificent end here.' As said before, `The power of Wardstone is that it is just a substance. The likeable, but dastardly evil wizard, casts spells using potions, scrolls, and spoken spells from memory. His daughter Shaella relies more on her ability to charm what she wants out of people, but even she is fallible and falls in love with the boy she is using. The sword `Iron Spike' fills its owner with an angelic symphonic chorus of power. It's a big continent. Different regions have different customs all the way around. I would have to say as a whole these is no single `system' of magic. The uniqueness of the characters in the books, and the unexpected events, losses, and emotion are what make my writing unique.'
There are few writers in the genre of fantasy that can equal the creative mind of M.R. Mathias. Thid ending of the trilogy substantiates the might and the flight of fancy and magic Mathias has created. Highly Recommended for Young Adults and adults who long to be young again! Grady Harp, November 14
This may sound overly dramatic, but this is the sort of series that can change someone's outlook on literature entirely. I remember how fantasy novels had once inspired me to become a writer, and although this series was intended for young adults and serious fantasy readers, I can see how Mathias' series could definitely be a watershed moment for a young person. I would recommend this entire series for anyone interested in an amazing escape for a few weeks or even a few months if you can resist the temptation to teat through the series as fast as possible. It's a wonderful blend of fantasy, fun, suspense, and action. I wish I could start all over at the beginning again!
