you know why you're here

Either you've stumbled on this book and don't know the Series, or you've listened to every book in the series and just need a bump to get you to the Arcanist release. If the former, listen to the core series first, the stories here may spoil things but definitely add context in hindsight. If the latter, just give them your credit already, why are you even reading this.

this is a good collection

I've liked every book in this series. this one aside from one short story, expands on the different things happening or happened in the world so far. as for that one story I'll let you all debate which it is. i gave the story portion of this rating only 4 stars for the simple reason of it not really being a stand alone book. the storys are good dont get me wrong but its not one you can pick up and understand what is going on in the world completely. I'm going to give it a second listen with one or two titles seperation and edit my review if needed. I really like this author and narrator combo I hope the legacy stays intact. thank you both for your hard work.

Leaves one hungry for more

This definitely fills in the gaps between Warmage and Magelord, and the missing parts from Magelord. My favorites were The Spellmongers Wedding, Victory Soup, and The Road to Sevendor, though The Ugliest Maid in Castal had me laughing at my desk at work. The sardonic wit, clevar conversation, and detailed plot not only reveals more of the Spellmonger world, but reintroduces us to the beloved characters. And the cliffhanger at the end makes me more hungry than ever for Arcanist. October 1st can't come any sooner!

What a wonderful world!

I believe this anthology could stand alone, though the richness of knowing the background and context of these stories cannot be understated!

Mancour & Lee Never Disappoint!

I appreciate getting the back story, connecting dots between storylines and characters getting fleshed out, so I throughly enjoyed this anthology. While an author has much more leeway than a movie script writer, an author still can’t include every scene and sidelight that occurs during the writing process. Some of those are the beginnings of new books, but some “end up on the cutting room floor”. I enjoyed it Terry Mancour, and thank you John Lee for adding that additional zing of magic only an accomplished narrator can give to a well developed fantasy world.

I can't wait to see this FILM!

When people say the book was better than the movie, the road to Sevendor is an example of just that. The stories, the characters, it all just comes to life. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!!! That said... I long for the day when I will see Sevendor come to life on film! Take my money NOW!

oh em gee...ive missed you spellmonger!

recently I've had to listen to some other series while we awaited the next installment of the spellmonger series...probably a huge one most who have gotten into spellmonger have heard as well...the Witcher series. I've long known of the Witcher from video game days and never got into them. then the Netflix series came out for the Witcher. when audible did a flash sale recently with several without books in sale I decided to take the plunge and get those and fill in the gaps with additional purchases. oh my. to each their own I guess but that first book in the Witcher series was like grating on a chalkboard. then the road to sevendoor came out. ive missed you my old friend! so smooth and the hours melt away like minutes. before you know it and a dozen or so short stories later, the 15 hours of this book was gone. compared to the first book of the itches series which took me several weeks to grind through...even after seeing the Netflix series it was based on which helped greatly to understand that audio book, this slellmonger series reminded me of JUST. HOW. FREAKING. GOOD. THIS SERIES IS! The writing is top notch and narration is simply amazing. you probably already know this if you're into this series. and note to anyone thinking of getting this book before you reach at least book 10 of the SM series...dont do it. listen to this in the order it was released. while this book fills in many gaps from the series from nearly the very beginning in book 1 & 2, listening to this before you hear the over arching series may spoil some aspects for you. plus for those of us who don't go back and relisten to the first books after spending 10+ books into the series before this one came out, its a way to remind us of those older events without having to go back and reread or listen again. it is a bit like the spellmonger honeymoon book...at first I was a little miffed to go back several books to the honeymoon, but after hearing that book and seeing how it filled in gaps intentionally left blank in the original book it was sreferenced in, again was a way to go back and "re live" that moment in a way with new content to paint that older point in the overarching story. really well done. this book is literally the honeymoon x10 or x12 or however many short stories are in this road to sevendoor...this book is easily one of my favorites in the entire series. wasnt expecting that! I almost didn't get it. but then I knew I could return it if i didn't like it so it was little risk in trying. so glad I did. again its like an old familiar broken in pair of boots or shoes that are just so comfortable after trying another well known series that just didn't flow as smoothly as this one did.

loved it

A great addition to the spellmonger series with some interesting insights into some episodes that are referenced in the books but which Mancour builds upon and finesses in this book. I'm totally committed to the story and just love the direction that some of the mythology is taking. John Lee's performance is amazing, with his accents and vocal characterisation bring all these characters to life. I can't wait for the next book and want to thank Mr Mancour for keeping me enthralled and delightfully distracted from all the rubbish and darkness that is going on at the moment.

Loved it

If your a fan of the Spellmonger series you'll love this. Adds more details to barely mentioned parts in main series. It's not mandatory but it adds more depth to the Spellmonger universe.

Great...

...as always. I'm a biased listener! Terry Mancour could write the phone book and ask John Lee to narrate it and I'd give a 5-star rating.
