Description

Lady Lenodara of Westwood, called the Hawkmaiden - Dara, to her friends - has had an adventurous life: She tamed a falcon when she was 12, learned she had magical talent, discovered that she had a natural aptitude as a beastmaster, won her witchstone at the first Spellmonger’s Trial, became the junior apprentice to Minalan the Spellmonger, Magelord of Sevendor, mastered the ancient magic of the Thoughtful Knife, fought goblins and a dragon, and was made a noble and richly rewarded for her heroics. Now that she’s safe back home in Sevendor, everything should go back to normal...right?

But a secret project with the Alka Alon Emissary, Ithalia, leads Dara to new troubles and adventures, as the Hawkmaiden assumes new responsibilities. Lady Ithalia wants to use magic to transform her falcon, Frightful, into a giant, so that she and other giant hawks can defend the Five Duchies against dragons in the air. Each hawk is to be ridden by a Sky Rider to aid the fight - and Dara is to be the first.

When Minalan purchases 20 hawks and hires a falconer to aid her efforts, Dara is tasked with building a mews to house them in the Westwood...and encounters her most difficult opponent yet: her father.

Hawkmaiden vs. Master of the Wood, father vs. daughter, Castle Folk vs. Woodfolk, Dara has to choose sides and made compromises in order to see her task completed without bothering the Spellmonger.

But fighting a dragon seems simple compared to challenging the Master of the Wood in his own land. With bandits milling around Sevendor and the threat of exposure for the giant falcon project, Dara has to learn new skills and understand an entirely different kind of magic if she’s to become the first Sky Rider!

I love the spell monger series.

The new spellmonger cadet books are a great listen, a fins enjoyable series so far. I do feel book one is the best out of the current 3. It is nice to get this series and listen. I am really enjoying the backstory of the Sky Riders.

Audible's rating is:
1 Star is "not for me"
2 Stars "it is okay"
3 Stars "pretty good"
4 Stars "it's great"
5 Stars "I love it"

A one star book could be a very dry topic, story,crude or someone preaching down to the reader. I generally don't have 1 star books. I will just return them and go my own way. My last 3 were from the same series, I had hit a very dry spot in my listening.

A 2 star story, would be something that was phoned in by a writer that typically has done much better work. I have a couple of reviews from authors that just seemed to phone it in, one most recently from an author that decided to mix current politics into his novel. If I wanted that, I would just watch the news.

A 3 star review is where I really start. It means I enjoyed the book. That I did not have a hard time following it (I have lost alot of my conversational hearing). That the story kept to a plot, the characters were not static, and the world built was plausable.

A 4 star review is something that I really enjoyed. It puts the author on my map to keep an eye out for. I go through 12-15 books a month. (audible is my primary source of entertainment. ) I will search for the author's works regularly, and seek out their stories for future purchases.

A 5 star review, These are not as rare as one would think. These are the books where the characters grow, learn, act according to their nature. Where the world is not only plausible but believable. Where there are economic systems, businesses, rules of law that make sense. Where the story is woven is progressed and told with caring and dedication. These are books, series, authors and narrators that bring it all in a package.

So, when reading my reviews, if anyone does, that is how I judge the books.

Not much new content

this book failed to add any new information or material into this story. after 3 side stories in a row I expected this book to be more in depth. it basically just repeated a story that has already been told from a different perspective. love the author and have read all of his available material but this one kind of seemed like a money grab.

The Story Doesn’t Disappoint

Really well written side bar to the main SpellMonger story. The series, hands down my all time favorite, dives deeper into the backstory of the sky riders and absolutely brings a depth that is appreciated. Again, however, I wish they would release Necromancer and allow us audio book fans to move the story forward!

Another wonderful Spellmonger book

The Cadet series is a worth addition to the Spellmonger series and takes up the story of the Youngest Apprentice of the Spellmonger amazingly. well written and fanstastically voiced this series is a must read for modern fantasy fans.

A Great Listen!

I love how the series develops all the different characters and not just the main ones. You get a great feel for the story development and the twists and turns that affect how the books move on and brings you in over and over!

great look into one of the spellmonger characters

I loved all three of the books. However, they are very short . I'm not sure there's enough value there.

Very Enjoyable

This might have been ghost written because the tone is very different from Terry's normal books. However it is still extremely enjoyable and I recommend it to anyone who is a fan of his main series.

the story keeps getting better

each twist, each new character not only add more intrigue and joy. But now a much clearer understanding and explanation of how this is possible... even to the point of believability.

Learning Experience

That moment when you get angry the same way & at the same time as the character because you empathize 100%. Golden reading right there.
