Publisher's Summary

When Pentandra got married and took a new job, she knew it would be tough.

Ducal Court Wizard is supposed to be the cushiest of assignments for a mage, full of stipends, laboratories, and expense funds. But when you join the Orphan Duke’s expedition to reclaim, recapture, and restore his shattered realm to health, you have to expect things to be...less cushy.

With the south in full rebellion, the goblins stirring on the northern frontier, and the summer capital being run by a corrupt baron and a gang of thugs, things could be better. But those aren’t the worst of her problems: Pentandra is learning how to live with her new husband, Arborn, while the town is driven to distraction by an incarnate sex goddess who is organizing all of the whores, a mopey spellmonger, a nun addicted to gambling, a prude sent by the queen, undead skulking through the shadows, and a mysterious blind girl shows up in her office claiming to be her new apprentice!

It’s enough to drive any woman mad, but Pentandra is not just any woman...she’s the hope of the Alshari Wilderlands, the woman everyone knows as the Court Wizard!

DO NOT LISTEN TO THE SECOND LAST CHAPTER

Firstly, great book!

Secondly, if you plan on reading/listening to the next book, Shadowmage, the second last chapter of this book is roughly a 15 minute summary of the entire book. Shadowmage is a great book with a great story. It is completely ruined if you read/listen to the second last chapter of this book.

A parallel story but still worth your time.

I've read mixed reviews about this book but personally I really enjoyed it.

If you just want the next installment of Minalin and a linear timeline, you'll possibibly be disappointed. But if you want the 'whole' story and more detail on Callidore it's an awesome read. Lots of details, but I like details. Despite the details, I still think it moves a long at a good pace and delivers an in depth story on Pentandra and the goings on in Alshar that provides a great understanding to set you up for book 10.

Books 8 and 9 are definitely worth the read although they do run in a parallel time line as book 7, but I'm so excited to get to 10 now. You'd do yourself a dis-service to skip or skim over.

Huge fan

Look I’m a huge fan of the spell monger series and I just want to say first that this is not intended in any negative way at all, its an honest query......
How many times is the word “Femininity” used during Court Wizard?

Love it though 5 stars always

The Epic Masterpiece continues

This time, the story is focused around Pentandra.

I can't wait for the next book in the series

Chapter 49

I thought that chapter 49 was cut short and finished with a lot of questions that were not answered in the last chapter.
Things like how did they escape the dragon etc

God damn she's a dumb protagonist

how can a character who's been written as an intelligent young woman make so many stupid decisions and look over so many obvious details
