Before I begin, I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
***NOT a standalone. This is book 3 of the Waterspell trilogy***

“A story so boldly begun must be told to its finish.”

Just when I thought nothing could top the second book, Deborah finishes the trilogy with this little gem! The conclusion to this remarkable story has a beautiful and satisfying conclusion that left me wanting to know more about these characters.

“She has grown up. Just a girl when she left here…a woma

The Wisewoman is a wonderful end to a fabulous trilogy that should be read by every fantasy reader who would like something a little different. The author cleverly creates tension without resorting to the battles, complex political intrigue and predictable structure favoured by many in the traditional fantasy genre. Instead we have a sensitive journey through a series of events that culminate in the answer to the ongoing mystery of the series – who is Carin and how is earth, the world of her bir ...more

I really love the cover of this book and it really goes along with the story.

Now this book is really getting into everything that I have been wanting to know. It is even more addicting than the other two books.

We really get to see the feelings that Carin and Verek have for one another and we also meet Meg who turns out to be Verek's great-aunt. Verek has lost his powers but Carin's have become stronger. She ends up doing some things that she can't control and tries to distance herself from Verek

Fantastic! I love that the author followed they story all the way until the end and really let the reader understand all that had happened in these many worlds. It was so well written and exciting, again another one I had a hard time putting down, hence staying up until 2am to finish it! Can't wait to re-read the series!

What?? The transition of them always fighting to being lovers did not flow well at all. It's fight then BAMM!! I love you. It didn't gradually build but more like insta and I did not like that at all.

Very exciting read! I highly recommend the series. She needs to write a fourth book and continue the story.

With a surprising twist at the start, this final installment of the Waterspell series started out rather interesting. As the story plays out, you still get the comical moments between Carin and Verek, but you now also get some sigh-worthy moments. Some of the things Verek says just make you want to melt. Progressing further, I was impressed with the palpable tension I felt in the conflict! If you read my review of The Warlock, then you really understand just how impressed I was with this!

I am not sure if I like the shift in POV to that of the Wisewoman.
After waiting for Crin nd Varek's relationship to heat up, it would have been better to get the story from Carin's POV.
Just lost interest
