Publisher's Summary

The second audiobook in the rich, compelling and laugh-out-loud Spellslinger series.

A Shadowblack plague is taking hold....

It's a few months since Kellen left his people behind. Now 16, Kellen and Reichis have developed something of a reputation for being able to kill unruly mages. So it's no surprise when a wealthy but desperate father asks for their help in hunting down the men who've blackmailed him by putting a deadly curse on his only daughter.

But when Kellen realises the girl is showing all the symptoms of the Shadowblack, he starts to wonder if those same mages might be able to cure his own disease for the right price.

Loving this series

Didn't think I'd be capable of enjoying a YA novel but after listening to the broken empire series I really fell in love with the voice actor Joe Jameson so by proxy I came across this series by Sebastian de Castell and I can't wait to get not only into the next book charmcaster but also for the following books in the series to come out on audible because I absolutely love Joe Jameson's renditions of the characters and to me they are the "real characters of the story". Id recommend this to anyone into the fantasy genre

Great!

The more I listen to of this series, the more I love it.
I found the first book slightly difficult to distinguish from The Greatcoats as it had the same feel and Narrator, but once into this, all thoughts of the other have disappeared.
Again, a great book and fantastically narrated. I actually think this is the funniest so far and have found myself laughing out loud! Gotta love that Squirrelcat!!

Problem

My biggest gripe with this book is the character building Through the entire book he comes off as obnoxious and just the person I wouldn't like to meet he seems a bit of a wimp he's not clever and I don't like him in the book

Thoroughly entertaining!

The Spellslinger series has quickly become one of those series that just won’t let me down. It’s the kind of series that doesn’t take itself too seriously. There’s nothing static and boring, everything has a life of its own and it’s wonderful! I like the characters I read about to have, well, character and Shadowblack delivers in spades maybe even more so than Spellslinger although it’s very close.


There was never a dry patch that had me doubting my decision to pick it up and I absolutely blitzed through it - not even work could get in the way. Now I’m on to Charmcaster, can’t wait to see where that particular road takes me.


For the audio fans: *Copied and pasted from last time and will forever because - Joe Jameson. No need to say anymore other than brilliant as always.


The cover (UK/AU): No surprises here, again love the covers for this series. Full marks from me and right up there with some of my all time favourites.


In short: Never a dull moment. I’m hooked.
