Publisher's Summary

A failed mage learns that just because he's not the chosen one, it doesn't mean he can't be a hero in the final book of the Spellslinger series.

Once an outlaw spellslinger, Kellen Argos has made a life for himself as the Daroman Queen's protector. A little magic and a handful of tricks are all it takes to deal with the constant threats to her reign. But when rumors of an empire-shattering war begin to stir, Kellen is asked to commit an unimaginable act to protect his queen.

Inside enemy territory, he quickly realizes something is amiss. Someone is playing a dangerous game. And to discover their secrets, Kellen will have to challenge the greatest spellcaster who's ever lived.

Kellen's misadventures concludes in Crownbreaker, the riveting finale to the adventure fantasy series that began with Spellslinger.

Magic is a con finale!

Like I said in my first update when I started this novel, I put off reading this book for as long as I could. I wasn't ready to part ways with Kellen, Reichs, Ferius & the rest of the characters of this wondrous series. The writing in this series (like in the Greatcoats series) had kept me guessing as to how Kellen would be changed by the end of this series, but I also knew it wouldn't be in the ways I thought.

I can't believe how much I enjoyed this novel & will continue to read any novel Sebastien de Castell writes. Speaking as a son & having a father (& stepfather) that I didn't meet their expectations of the type of boy they wanted. The writing of this hit such a tone within me by Mr. de Castell's writing style.

Please let us renew our acquaintance with the Gang

This series is serious fun: the characters grab and don't let go, yet they do change and grow ( well, maybe not Reichus). While I enjoy de Castell's Greatcoat series, Spellslinger is more lighthearted and fun. I'll listen again in a while.

A good end to a wonderful series

This series has been a fun and thoughtful ride. While the protagonist can be rather whiny what teenager thrown into this kind of situation wouldn’t be? The arts of the Argosi are thoughtful little “tricks” that one can carry with them going forward. I loved this series!

another great story

Mr de Castell had crafted another wonderful tale about an unstoppable yet deprecating hero. Can't wait to see what he writes next!

One of my favorite series

I have enjoyed the journey with Kellen and friends. A great mix of funny, scary, sad, happy, magic, fantasy, and a time or two of really creepy. Good stories to listen to - like spending time with people I really like.

humbled and longing for more

Sebastian, thank you for such a amazing series. also, thank you for the heartfelt words and connecting with me on a personal level and not a distant God level. Your books have not only kept me desiring what happens next, but fantasizing about what did happen next. this book like all others that I've read was an emotional rollercoaster. it had me laughing worried for characters and even shedding some tears. I have to say for sure this one had some of the biggest twists in it that I never even saw coming. and that says a lot my family say I love to ruin movies by guessing the plot 5 minutes into the movie. thank you for keeping my attention in books where I've had a lack of for roughly 20 years. Kellen and rycus will always be a part of me now

too much fun

Didn't know Castel could keep me engaged one more time, after all the squirrel cat is almost a cartoon character, but somehow they were entertaining, satisfying and just plain fun.
