Publisher's Summary

Having successfully driven off an assault and freed captives of Kelvanis, Sistina begins fortifying to defend those she cares about from further attacks. Yet with all her power within her halls, she cannot grant those under her protection true freedom. To truly bring hope to her love, Sistina must delve into who she once was, and bring forth every scrap of magic she has to become a shining beacon of hope.

Sadly, Kelvanis' plans are only mildly impeded by her efforts up until now, and they will stop at nothing to bring their ends about. The only question is, whose side is time on?

    "can't wait for the next book."

    This is by far one my favorite book series. I've never felt like writing reviews or looking up the date of when the next book would be available before this reading these books.

    "A Different Fantasy"

    Surprisingly compelling for a second book in a trillogy, Spells of Old did not disappoint.

    My personal guess as to why this book holds up so well on its own and as an installment in a series is the author's break from traditional narrative convention. This is not a traditional fantasy story in anything but the (possible over) use of traditional fantasy words. The most compelling character is a nigh-unstoppable not-quite deity, and she's the central figure of the tale through this book as well. She is just doing her own thing, and it's interesting to see how and why she takes steps to build up her power base and harem.

    In trying to spell it out, this is almost the reverse of a traditional fantasy tale. Almost all the supporting cast is on fairly standard fantasy adventures, even the badguy building up his evil empire, but our not-goddess is just doing her own thing. It's obvious to the audience that she will eventually but heads with others but it's hard to imagine how she'd be stopped, or even really slowed, and we're just along for the ride like the rest of the cast, watching her build power and do crazy powerful stuff for herself and those she cares about. How does she react to all the little people in her shadow, and how do they react now that she's starting to make waves?

    It's not a book one reads to empathize with a main character. This is a book and series for cheering on a superwoman as the word crashes into her, and admiring the mythology revealed in the prices left over.

    "Lesbian harem neckbeard fantasy book."

    I barely finished the first book because the relationship between two female main characters was bad but now there's a whole harem of girls she dates and succubus are present too. I couldn't finish it. What a waste of a good plot.

    "Great second book"

    Wonderful book, if you read the first one youll like this one. if you didnt read the first one I would highly suggest it.
    The only downside that isnt really a downside, sometime the bad guys are just so... i cant think of the right word. But while reading, the bad guys make bad things happens and i know, i just KNOW, that theirs plans are going to work out. I dont have the feeling that oh, the main character or someone is going to sweep in and fix everything. To be able to write in such a way that my "oh dont worry everything will work out for the best because they are the bad guys and are going to lose in the end" is not just not triggered, but gets reversed into, "oh crap the bag guys might do the thing!" thats damn good writing for me, no matter if the bad guys actually succeed in their thing or not.

    Cant wait for book 3, might buy the physical book when its released rather than wait for the audible copy, and thats not something i do a lot

    "10/10 Phenomenal"

    I plan to write a longer review later, but suffice it to say that I loved this book. The characters are all really fun and have their own unique voices, the writing is great (except for when the author uses the same word twice in a sentence, which is small, I know, but a pet peeve of mine), and the voice actor lends a lot to the story. I can't wait for the next book to come out. Thanks!

    "a good giggle."

    it's a fun story. the writing is ok. alittle lacking in places. detail mostly. the environment could be richer. but the story is good and I'm eager for the third installment. a good holiday read.
