General Overview
The second instalment of Terry Mancour’s Spellmonger Cadet series, Hawklady see our heroine Dara, faces down dangerous monsters, and even more deadly ladies of court. Another exciting read, for readers of all ages.

Mr Mancour’s writing style remains as engaging as ever. He also continues with the unnecessary repetition of parts of his book, which have been a personal bugbear of mine for his series. ( See my previous reviews for more on this)

He does however deliver again wit

It's Terry Mancour, so, always a win.
This part of the series hits around (it's been a while) the Journey Mage or Knight's Magi timeframe of the Spellmonger series.
I thought it would have been a great idea to delve into the talents of Dara then, and it's been a pretty good ride, considering you're revisiting what's now considered history in the timeline of Sevendor.
The book delivers, and, to my surprise, I love the tie-ins from Dara's point of view on subjects addressed in the nine books I've re

I love this series!

I have now read every book in this series and I have to say I want more!!! The world created by Mr. Mancour is so real! The books so well written that you lose yourself in the stories! Lady Dara is so well written that I would love to meet her and her bird frightful! I have been a avid reader of fantasy novels and I have to say that the spellmonger series ranks with the very best of the fantasy elite! I would love to see movies made of this world but I honestly question if any

This was just as enjoyable as the first, but definitely suffers a little more from expecting you to have read the main series. There were a few unexplained changes to the world that threw me slightly - such as there suddenly being a king now - but they were easy to get over since they didn't relate directly to the main character and the actual plot of the book.

What confused me the most was Dara's sudden lock of white hair. I remember it being mentioned at all in the previous book, and consideri

Another fun adventure for the Hawkmaiden

This continues the adventures of Lenodora. It's pretty fun, though it dips into politics a little (not too much). The action is pretty well done, and it's always fun to see the heroine get recognized. This did cover events from the main Spellmonger series, just from a different perspective. I found it fun and refreshing. Looking forward to the next book in the series!

Really good book. I’m liking Dora a lot more than a lot of the characters in this series. She is a lot more innocent and not as corrupted as a lot of the other characters. This brings a fresh perspective to the books. Once again I wonder what my thoughts would be if I didn’t know what was going to happen because of other books.

Further Insight into Spellmonger Continuum

Dara character shown in development across the storyline which is consistent with the main novels. It did add some texture to my understanding of society here and as usual is well crafted and written.

Another fine addition to the Spellmonger Universe

A short but worthwhile and enjoyable dive into the Spellmonger Universe so adeptably constructed by Mancour. Enjoyed the new perspective from Min's new apprentice.

Fun Read

Sometimes it is fun to just read to expand on a story you are already in. These books expand on the themes I have already read. Good read, just for fun. Enjoyed it and recommend it to all, no matter your age.

Slow (I wanted more)

I liked it, I really did. But the thing is I wanted more. Took 2 books to tell somethings thate were in few chapters in the third book. I think my critisism is not really one. I just wanted more.

Another wonderful addition to the Spellmonger series.

I find the retelling of events from the mainline story thru young Dara's eyes very entertaining reading. The tone of the Hawklady books is generally light and entertaining, making for a fun fast read.

Needs proofreading

Far too many obvious errors, to include sentences that are little more than word-salad.

Still readable. It was interesting viewing the battle from a different perspective.
Not as good as the first.

Excellent sevond installment to this series.

Good Read.

The young adult novel of the hawkmaiden that becomes the hawklady. The story continues, but from a different view with new happenings that the reader was not aware of.

Fantastic follow up to Hawkmaiden. Such an enjoyable ride. The narrator on audible is amazing.

I bought the Audible version when I read that it was on the "New Release" list and then realized once I started listening that I had already read this. So - I went ahead and read it and listened to it again and enjoyed it just as much as before. It is always nice to go back into the world of the Spellmonger and it is doubly so because the events in this novella take place right in the middle of the current plot (after some major events, yet before others). This takes me back to when Dara was you ...more

Terry Mancour continues to deliver on the Spellmonger literary world, but who really turns his stories from a 4* to a 5* novel are his voice actors.

This picks up right after the previous book in the side-series and we get to see a lot of important information that ties directly to plot running through the main books. It really fills out the character of Lady Dara and I'm hoping we get to see the experiments with Frightful to get the giant eagles in the next book.

Good book

Read the first book before reading this. You do not have to read any of the other books except hawkmaiden before this one. It does help though and gives you some background to the characters. I can't wait for the next book.
