Book Review – Charmcaster by Sebastien De Castell


The third book in the page-turning Spellslinger fantasy series.

‘I was getting almost as good at running away from enemies as I was at making them in the first place. Turns out, I wasn’t running nearly fast enough.’

Kellen has begun to master his spellslinging and the Argosi tricks for staying alive, and he and Reichis have found a career that suits them both: taking down mercenary mages who make people’s lives miserable. But Ferius is concerned that Kellen is courting disaster …


For my previous reviews of this series check out SpellSlinger and Shadowblack.

I received this book from the publisher, via Net Galley, in exchange for an honest review.

Oh I just love this series. I loved getting back to this world and finding out more! I especially liked the Charmcaster and getting to see more of that person (ha no spoilers, just confusion!). And seeing some more Argosi and more of the politics of the universe.

The plot was again tightly written and letting you have just enough to try and guess some of what’s going on but not so much you could actually succeed 😂👍🏻. I also really like that we tie up some previous going’s on.

Kellen’s journey of self discovery towards the end was just lovely, and so heart breaking in so many ways. And him and Rechis were as always fantastic!! Reichis is my favourite, always. So violent and angry. I love him. Though I think he may actually be mellowing 😉 (ow! Reichis! Don’t bite me!)

And seeing more of Ferius and her ways and her awesome relationship with Kellen is always fab. I love her too 😍 and her frustration with the Jan’Tep hehe.

I can’t wait for the fourth book (and how much do I love that it’s not a long wait?!) and to see what Kellen does next. I also hope we get more back story of the why’s of things that happened in both this book and Shadowblack.
