Description

Leandra Weal has a bad habit of getting herself in dangerous situations. While hunting neodemons in her role as Warden of Ixos, Leandra obtains a prophetic spell that provides a glimpse one day into her future. She discovers that she is doomed to murder someone she loves, soon, but not who. That's a pretty big problem for a woman who has a shark god for a lover, a hostile empress for an aunt, a rogue misspelling wizard for a father, and a mother who--especially when arguing with her daughter--can be a real dragon. Leandra's quest to unravel the mystery of the murder-she-will-commit becomes more urgent when her chronic disease flares up and the Ixonian Archipelago is plagued by natural disasters, demon worshiping cults, and fierce political infighting. Everywhere she turns, Leandra finds herself amid intrigue and conflict. It seems her bad habit for getting into dangerous situations is turning into a full blown addiction. As chaos spreads across Ixos, Leandra and her troubled family must race to uncover the shocking truth about a prophesied demonic invasion, human language, and their own identities--if they don't kill each other first. Spellbreaker is the long awaited sequel to Blake Charlton's Spellbound, which was listed by Kirkus Reviews among the Best Science Fiction and Fantasy of 2011. This final installment of the Spellwright Trilogy stands alone as a complete story; however, fans of the series will find in it answers to the questions raised by the previous books about Leandra's parents, Nicodemus Weal and Francesca DeVega.show more

About Blake Charlton

Blake Charlton is now a proud dyslexic, but as a boy he hated the condition that kept him effectively illiterate. He learned to read fluently by sneaking fantasy novels into seventh grade special-ed study hall. Since then he has been (in no particular order) a JV football coach, a Yale undergraduate, bald, a high school English teacher, a chronically semi-employed writer, a special education advocate, a Stanford medical student. He is currently a senior resident physician in Internal Medicine at the University of California San Francisco. Blake's non-fiction has appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine, The British Medical Journal, and The New York Times among others. Blake's science fiction short stories have appeared in the Seeds of Change and the Unfettered anthologies. Spellbreaker is his third novel and the final installment of the Spellwright Trilogy.show more

Review quote

"A well-written and cleverly presented fantasy with strong characters and surprising plot twists, this saga should appeal to those who enjoyed its predecessor as well as fans of Terry Brooks and L. E. Modesitt Jr." --"Library Journal, "starred review "Charlton succeeds brilliantly here; this is no mere setup for the final installment. Absolutely not to be missed." --"Kirkus Reviews, "starred review ""Spellbound" is an adventure fantasy filled with mystery, interesting characters and a unique world that mixes the fantasy cliches so many of us know and love, with a brand new feel that is purely Charlton." --"Bookworm Blues" ""Spellbound" is a daring new work of fantasy that pushes the "Spellwright" trilogy closer to its conclusion while remaining just as emotionally and intellectually challenging as the first installment." --"Rob Will Review" """The story is loaded with interesting characters, a story that works well and that comes unexpectedly at points, and a world that is worth returning to often." --"Worlds in a Grain of Sand"show more
