#wyrdandwonder: Throwback Thursday : The Spellslinger series by Sebastien de Castell


Wyrd and Wonder – a month long event that is a celebration of fantasy.  Check out the details hereand join in the fun in whatever way you would like to do so.

ThrowbackThursday.pngThrowback Thursday, is a new feature created by Tenacious Reader with the aim of  highlighting books from your reading past. This can be virtually anything, a book that you previously read and loved, a book that you want to highlight again, maybe it’s a book in a series and the next book is due out shortly so you want to focus some attention on the series.   Anything goes – so long as your book isn’t a current release as there are already plenty of ways to highlight the latest books.  

Today I’m highlighting The Spellslinger series by Sebastien de Castell.  I’m absolutely loving this series.  It’s the perfect combination of good storytelling, wonderful characters and crazy adventures where everything and anything can go wrong and it’s a series that is growing in seriousness with each instalment.  I’ve read the first four books already and hopefully will pick up No.5 soon.  If you’re loving this series you may be pleased to learn that No.5 is now out there – in the big wide world and No,6 has been announced with an expected publication date later this year.  So there’s never been a better chance to give this series a shot.  Here are the first four in series:

I love these covers and so I’ve also posted the fifth cover below for your convenience:

    I loved the first book and one of these days I’ll finish the series😁

    • @lynnsbooks

      This series has all been so quick to hit the shelves that even though I think I’m keeping on top of it – I’m actually falling behind! Still, I’m not complaining, it’s so lovely to have a series where I don’t have such a long wait between books.

    I really really need to start this series! I think I will love it but for some reason I keep not picking it up!


    • @lynnsbooks

      I’m loving it for a variety of reasons. Likable characters, fun, self contained stories each time, but, more than that – the character arc from start to the point we’ve now reached is just great. We started off with a young boy really and he’s growing and becoming a young man. Plus the tone is becoming darker and more loaded with each instalment kind of reminds me the way the HP books changed in tone.
