Awesome listen.

4* for the story, +1* for the voice acting.

The side-story of Dara is satisfactorily brought to a conclusion with this book and it does a great job of filling the "in-between space", giving us a lot of background around what's happening and how we come about the discovery of the snowstone mine.

Now to await the next audio in the main series.

Another great addition to the superbly epic word of the Spellmonger.
The concluding part of this cadet trilogy takes part between the end of Magelord and part way through Highlord.
Dara is steadily mastering the basics and some intermediate magical theory and spellwork, whilst at the same time trying to carve a place for herself in the world, discovering suitors and beginning her teenage angst stage.
Some excellent titbits about the Alka Alon and more details added to the world building make this

Honestly, although I like the character of Dara and have enjoyed the other cadet novels, this outing is the weakest in the entire series.

The story doesn't break any new ground and, unlike the other cadet novels, doesn't advance the main series' storyline at all.

It was reasonably interesting to read, but felt short and kind of rushed, maybe?

I truly love the world of the Spellmonger. It was nice to get a peak into what was happening with Dara back before the launch of the Skyriders while we wait for the next installment of Minilan’s story.

For some reason, Dara’s been given kind of a bad rap in the over arching story because we’ve been hearing things from Gareth’s side.... or maybe I’ve just been feeling protective of him and upset on his behalf. (I’m talking about events far in the future from this book) So, it’s nice to get a POV

The beginning of something wonderous

I just can not get enough of Terry Mancour's books! From the very first book that I read, I was hooked! Now, to my mind, he can't write them fast enough. The magic is believable, the characters are friends you wish you had and the story could go on forever!

Birth of the Sky Riders

I am deeply in love with the Lenodara, the Hawkmaiden after that incredible ride.

Mancour is masterfully developing one of the best characters of all time... young Lady Lenodara, the the best literary series of all time, the Spellmonger Series.

Meh. Not horrible and at times entertaining. In my opinion, Mancour's first book in the spellmonger series is still his best. I will keep reading future books by Mancour just because they are better than TV.

Good read.

I have enjoyed the story of BraNdenburg fro. Her perspective. Although a book for young readers, it is well written and entertaining. Will continue reading the following books.

Good tale to go with the others

I enjoyed the book and would recommend to anyone who likes the ongoing tales of Mancour's Calidor. The only complaint I would have is it's too short! There is much more he could do with the character hopefully. But i wa a fun read!!

Another outstanding entry in the Spellmonger line.

These books are always fun. They do a good job of expanding on the main universe. When seen thru the eyes of a young girl, even a noble girl who is a mage it’s easy to tell we’re not in Kanas anymore.

Dara's story

A good book to catch up on all things Spellmongers world, from Data's experiences. Some of of the intelligence she got from her alon friend doesn't get shared in the main books. All in all a refreshing book to read. Enjoyable. Just long enough.

Good read

Finally. I was waiting a long time for the next Terry Mancour book. It was a good story, but it was just backstory. What I am really waiting for is the next book in the Spellmonger series.

What a delight

Following Dara and picking up more of the spellmonger pieces is wonderful. Another spectacular feature to the world of goblins and wizards.

The continuing story of the Young Adult novel of a character in the Spellmonger series. The expands the story of the main series with additional details.
