Back to what makes Ethshar my favorite series. It's usually something of a low key series, but the last novel (Relics of War) was so low key that nothing ever happened except a guy and his sister walking in his woods to talk to a half-demon and constantly turning up their palms.

But this, while still fairly low key, actually features things happening. Essentially a wizard moves into his uncle's house (who is renting) and discovers some of the statues are people turned to stone. Being a nice guy,

Another ripping great Ethshar yarn

I've been a fan of Lawrence Watt-Evans for more than 25 years, ever since I stumbled across his first Ethshar novel "The Misenchanted Sword" in my school library. Since then I've tracked down pretty muchvery one of his books and I eagerly await each new release.
Ethshar is a classic fantasy world with magic, monsters and some really great storytelling. Light hearted and fun, they still make you think.
Stone Unturned has some new ideas and new writing techniques f

LWE is back in top form!
Plenty of magical hi-jinx action, interesting characters and viewpoints.
Feels like a return to his epic tales of old instead of a novella.
The story and events there off adds too his world lore instead of just being set in the world.
I love the details about how wizardry works (more please?)
Let’s face it Ethshar is great but we come for the misenchanted swords, pocket universes and flying castles.

A wonderful tale, and fitting addition to the Legends of Ethshar universe. The author wove together a number of seemingly disparate threads into a seamless tapestry involving multiple types of magic and believable characters who readers will be happy to root for. The Ethshar world is so large and rich that one hopes there are a large number of these stories still to be written.

Excellent addition to Ethshar!

It had been a few years since I caught up with my Ethshar reading, and this is the last of the books I had shelved. This novel recaptures the fun, with twists and turns, hardship and adventure that made me fall in love with Ethshar when I got my hands on the first novel, The Misenchanted Sword

Another excellent Ethshar volume.

Great story weaving, excellent character development. Wish it were the first in a multi volume work....oh right it’s not the first it’s the latest in an illustrious line of writing.

Very good story!

So far my favourite Etshar story was With a single spell... But this one at least rivaling it. Good and engrossing story!

I always enjoy new entries in this series. The changes in perspective were a little confusing at first, but eventually, it all made sense. Maybe my fault for not paying enough attention.

Great book

Fast read, witty and fun. My second favorite, with a single spell is still my favorite, but I will gladly return to this one. A couple twists I didn't see coming.

Fun fantasy in the author's Ethshar universe. Characters are likable, the magic and the plot was interesting.

A good read. Not quite as wonderful as some of the earlier Ethshar books, IMO, but well worth the price and the reading.

Right up my alley: a book full of magic-users, with a (main) protagonist who's simply motivated by doing the right thing, because he's a good person.

The author describes this series as "light-hearted," and if by that he means "not dark and tragic and full of angst" then I endorse that description. It's refreshing to have sword-and-sorcery tales that aren't packed with antiheroes, and I will be checking out the rest of this series (which consists mostly of standalones that can be read out of ord
