Every wizard in Ethshar knew that if you needed something special, something difficult to find, that Gresh the Supplier was the man to see. He was expensive, but always delivered. So when the Wizards' Guild finally got fed up with the little green nuisances that called themselves "spriggans," the Guild hired Gresh to fetch them the magic mirror that created the troublesome ...more

Recommends it for: Ethshar fans
This is a book written for the Ethshar world, created by Lawrence Watt-Evans. It concerns the spriggans, as you might have guessed from the title. In fact, it concerns their very existence; how they came to be, what they are how the world could possibly get rid of them.

Personally, I'm a huge Ethshar fan. I got all the books, even though I haven't read them all (three more to go). If this is your very first Ethshar experience... then turn back. It's probably not the right place to start. Why do I
Following on from 'With a single spell', The spriggan mirror is very poor fare indeed. This book concerns itself to a very minor loose end from its predecessor, has Watt-Evans run out of plots?
If you want to read Watt-Evans, try 'single spell' or 'misenchanted sword', if you want to complete Watt-Evans, leave this one till last?
Another fine addition to the Legends of Ethshar by Watt-Evans. My major disappointment was that unlike the other books set in Ethshar, this one didn't really start off with a bang. I was stunned to find I was halfway through it and there was no major plot hang up! That bit came about 7/8ths of the way through it!

I liked this book a lot. I saw it got mixed reviews, but I thought it was great. I like the detail about how the magic works and the wild creativity in the explanations. Don't miss this one when you read the series it fills in several parts of the series story well and is a great read.
Decent continuation and resolution from the predicament created by magic gone awry in With a Single Spell. I want to say this is one of his best Ethshar novels since Spell of the Black Dagger.
It's nice to have another book in this series.
It's nice to have a wrap up for the Spriggans
It's nice to see an old character again.

It's not enouugh to lift this book past Meh
Some of the life seems to have gone out of this series. Also probably could have used an editor at a major publisher for some polishing.
A fun, light fantasy (with a slight hint of misogyny).
This was the weakest book in the Ethshar series.
Yet another good entry in the Ethshar series.
