E Kellen is willing to consider the possibility that there might be something to the so called curse which means we are also one step further along on his journey to self acceptanceIt would be hard to read this book and not to feel proud of him watching him confront his demons and decide his own future Having grown p in a society of labels and where one s place in the hierarchy is everything Kellen coming to grips with his new life as an exile was a huge turning point Now he ll have another challenge before him as he determines once and for all how to deal with his own family from the father who has given p on him to the sister he doesn t know if he can trust Without Ferius to guide him or Reichis to fight with him Kellan is forced to follow his instincts and place priorities on what matters most In some ways this makes Soulbinder the most telling and important books in the series thus far revealing all of our protagonist s inner feelings and conflictsAnd so if you ve been following along and enjoying the Spellslinger adventures this fourth volume is not one to
Be Missed A Great Deal missed A great deal in the balance in this book not least of all are the lives of friends both new and old Soulbinder is a powerful installment that sees a hero coming into his own and it is filled with momentous revelations and pivotal actions that will surely make it one of the memorable books in the series Spellslinger continues to be one of the best YA series with Soulbinder being another great entryAs before the standout element Kellen searches for the Ebony Abbey his latest hope to find a cure for his shadowblack In this installment Kellen is even separated from
REICHIS THE READER ENCOUNTERS MANY NEW CHARACTERS AND GAINS The reader encounters many new characters and gains interesting view on the shadowblack Kellen once again has to rely on his Argosi training and is forced to reconsider his family ties Will war be inevitable Are the cultural differences to big to be overcome Read for yourself I enjoyed this book immensely amongst others due to B a new character but also because of Kellen holding on to his principles while still evolving Two books are still left and I have still no idea how the series will end which is a good sign for me Thank you Sebastian for creating those wonderful characters and thank you for giving me B Finally the series is moving on and getting better once againActual Rating 35 Stars This was so good Our Kellan is growing p This story sees him on an adventure without Ferius or Reichis We also learn a lot about the complexities of Shadowblack and Kellan learns about his own condition This showed excellent character developm.

review Soulbinder Spellslinger #445 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum my review
OF THE PREVIOUS BOOK CHARMCASTER I NOTED HOW CERTAINthe previous book Charmcaster I noted how certain seemed to keep popping p repeatedly in the storytelling However as I was reading Soulbinder all I could of was how Sebastien de Castell must have had the same
concerns as I did on direction of this series because it seemed he did everything he couldas I did on the direction of this series because it seemed he did everything he could this one to shake things p and make the story as npredictable as possible again even going as far as to make light of some of the repetitive patterns from the previous novelsNeedless to say this time the introduction did not parallel the opening chapters of the previous books although once the novel opens pon a scene of our protagonist Kellen and the suirrel cat Reichis struggling to survive another attempt on their lives Such is the life of an outlaw after all Still instead of Ferius Parfax charging to the rescue with her bold tricks and fiery words this time the Argosi adventurer is nowhere to be found And instead of barely managing to thwart their attackers and get away this time our heroes wind Wciv, Volume 1 up beaten and broken lying in the hot desert sands waiting for death to claim themBut when Kellen wakesp next his elation at having survived is short lived He finds he has been kidnapped by a cult of monks afflicted with the cursed Shadowblack who have spirited him away to their Ebony Abbey hidden in the snowy mountains Worse when they took him they also left Reichis behind leaving our protagonist all alone in a strange placeNo Ferius No Reichis You d think I wouldn t have enjoyed this book as much since our beloved trio has been split apart but nothing could be further from the truth I loved Soulbinder which might be the best installment since the first one This is the book where it is truly Kellen on his own against the world where his resolve is fully tested Without the support of his friends he must rely on only his own wits and skills applying all that he has learned since leaving home to figure a way out of his predicament As much as I love Ferius and Reichis even I must admit a story like this was a long time coming because readers needed to know just how far our boy has comeThat s not to say Kellen doesn t find help from other sources some of them Even Monsters Need Haircuts uitenexpected It turns out there is to the Ebony Abbey followers who have stolen him away and among them he makes a few new friends and allies What s we get to learn a lot about the Shadowblack which our protagonists and his companions have been trying to find a cure for since the beginning of the series But what if there was to the condition For the first tim. The fourth book in the page turning SPELLSLINGER fantasy series Kellen and his murderous suirrel cat Reichis are on their own They've heard rumour of a mythical monastery known as the Ebony Abbey It's a place that outsiders ca.
Ent Recommended Just when things *Started Feeling Same Old Same *feeling same old same Sebastien de Castell switches everything p Kellen is on his own and thrown into a predicament without any help from his companions He is forced to grow as a character and in doing so we learn a lot about his Shadowblack problem and what it could all meanI had a helluva fun time with this one and after the first book it is probably my favorite in the series so far At first I was put a little off
balance with the omission of some of my favorite characters however Iwith the omission of some of my favorite characters however I grew to love or at least be fascinated by the new peoples that the author has populated his story withAgain just like the other books this is an action packed book that reads really ickly It is peppered with the sual humor although I feel like this one had darkness behind the tongue in cheek banter that the other ones didn t which in turn really hammered home the seriousness of Kellen s plight I was very nsure about this installment at first but then it became one heart attack after another Such a crazy ending I can t tell whether I m totally hooked on the series because of all the cool things that have been discovered andor learned through the course of them or whether this particular book shone all on its own a bit brighter than all but the firstBut enjoy it I did A lot I m loving the whole jack of all trades vibe taking on masters of single schools of magic Trickster Yep Highly observational Yep In the heart of a land of Shadowblack monks hiding from the rest of the world and STILL getting into trouble for all the best of reasons YepWith some really dark moments That tooI m telling you fantasy novels like this ones that are ostensibly YA but really rich in the KINDS of magic and fully developed rules for it are still reliant on great characters and shining dialogue Fortunately this has it in spades Still loving this series and how broad the در آخرین روزهای رضاشاه universe isKellen is brilliant in this one really coming across as a young kid forced to growp too fast and a good trickster but also a sensible trouble loving head on his shoulders His interactions with all the new characters was fab My favourite is
Butelios he s awesome I m really hoping we see of himhe s awesome I m really hoping we see of him the future And as much as I sort of This series keep getting better and better The multi layer story style as always awesome The solo performance of Kellen s showed character development I genuinely scared about Reichis for a while Overall a top notch writing kick ass story and complex characters Sebastien de Castell showed yet again that he is one of the best out there right now with this boo. The first time Kellen must face the world alone and venture deeper into shadow magic than he ever knew he could Perfect for fans of The Dark Tower Firefly Guardians of the Galaxy Terry Pratchett Ben Aaronovitch and Jim Butcher.
