One thought on “The Warlock

  1. Lady Vigilante (Feifei)

    Before I begin, I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review NOT a standalone This is the first book in the Waterspell trilogy He only wanted the crystal And now that I ve brought it to him, he s done with me Betrayal was the last clear idea in her mind before existence ended WOW, WOW, WOW I thought nothing could rival Graceling, my most favorite fantasy book since 2009, but THIS book and the entire Waterspell trilogy blew my expectations out of the ballpark What a brilliant [...]

  2. Cierra (The Book Lover's Report)

    The main character, Carin traveling from her old place, to a place unknown to us, but where she feels that she needs to be A swordsman finds her on his land, and doesn t believe her when she says that there wasn t anything proclaiming that it was private property, so he gets her to take him to where she came in through That s how this book starts off.I thought this book was a good read because it thoroughly flowed to where I read it, and didn t know that I got very far, but I did I think that th [...]

    Just in KIRKUS has issued its review, which I quote here along with others Intriguing premise and original characters Carin and Verek s well crafted relationship balances in a tense power struggle Fine fantasy KIRKUS I don t see how this could avoid being a hit I couldn t put it down Good, complex story well crafted, well written S Caldwell Definitely captures interest Carin immediately becomes an interesting POV character, with a nice sense of mystery surrounding her Verek is intriguing as well [...]

    The Warlock, the first book in the Waterspell series by Deborah Lightfoot, is a well crafted, traditional fantasy that grabbed my attention and kept it It s a truly unique book with magic that transcends worlds via a fascinating pool of water, and in which Lewis Carrol s Alice Through the Looking Glass has an unexplained relationship to the world inhabited by Carin, a teenage traveller and the Warlock, Lord Verek Carin is heading north She doesn t know why, just that a wise woman told her she sh [...]

  5. David Caldwell

    I won a copy on Firstreads.This is book 1 in a trilogy.It might be appropriate to call it part 1.By that I mean it is the first part of the story as opposed to a stand alone book in a 3 book series.Excuse me for the following brief digression.It seems to be the trend that if you have a fantasy trilogy, then each part is just part of one huge story and usually ends on a cliffhanger.But with science fiction trilogies,you have interlinked stories making a larger story.This makes sense if you look [...]

  6. Rea

    Full review can be found here.Well, really this first book in the trilogy is of a fantasy than a fantasy romance, but the seeds are in place to germinate into something The relationship between the characters, Carin and Verek, doesn t really grow all that much between the start of the story and the end I would have liked to have seen a bit evolution between them, but I will accept that that is still to come.All throughout the book my mind was going mad with comparisons First of all, I had Bea [...]

  7. Ashley Chen

    First note, I am a HUGE fantasy fan 3 When the book started, I just knew I was going to love it As for Carin, she immediately reminded of characters from Storm Glass by Maria V Snyder, The Seven Realms by Kristin Cashore, and even The Demon King by Cinda William Chima.Verek reminded me of Beast from Beauty and the Beast He was strong, powerful, but very awkward He was definitely troubled But unlike Beauty and the Beast, Carin and Verek don t just opening up to each other, which I liked It just m [...]

    Thank you to the author for the copy of this book for review.Drawn into the schemes of an angry wizard, Carin glimpses the place she once called home It lies upon a shore that seems unreachable To learn where she belongs and how to get there, the teenage traveler must decipher the words of an alien book and follow the clues in a bewitched poem.This was an extremely well written fantasy story, with an easy to read and likeable heroine at its heart Carin travels North to find out where she belongs [...]

  9. Crystal

    Carin is sent on a mission North to go where she belongs She follows this task until she is caught in the woods by Verek She tells him that there was no signs saying she couldn t enter his woods but he disagrees with her She knows that there is something about him when she looks into his dark eyes Carin is a young lady that knows her mind and isn t afraid to speak it Sometimes I don t know how to take Verek One minute I like him and another I just want to beat him to death I am wondering what th [...]

  10. Lisa(Bookworm Lisa)

    This book is very intriguing Carin was found five years ago along a watery bank She could not speak and had no memory of her past She was taken in as a servant The only thing she knew with certainty is that she did not belong Following the words of the wise woman, she headed North.North found her in another situation she did not anticipate She found herself the reluctant guest of a tormented and slightly crazy warlock Together they try to figure out who she is and where she came from The biggest [...]

  11. Pamela

    A delightful read tight writing, fast moving narrative and intriguing characters Felt I knew Carin and Verek s personalities, and each page turned finding of their characters and backgrounds And the others too You ll have to read it for yourself Who needs sleep I d rather be on an adventure, even if it s only between the pages of an excellent book.

    Okay, I often give my own small blurb about a book at the start of a review, but I ll spare you this time I m sure you are capable of reading the blurb for yourself, and after reading my review, hopefully you ll see that I ENCOURAGE you to make sure you read it After reading the first chapter, I was very intrigued I could tell right away that this book would be different from the norm I wasn t disappointed as far as that goes You quickly learn that there s a big connection with Carroll s Through [...]

  20. Intisar Khanani

    This is the first book in what promises to be a fascinating fantasy trilogy Carin is a foundling with a secret or two even she isn t aware of yet Sent north by the wisewoman of her village, she stumbles into Lord Verek s domain and into some serious trouble Verek if is a warlock with a tragic past, and while he does do occasional nice things, the man has some serious emotional baggage resulting in verbal, emotional and borderline physical abuse I was right there with Carin, ready to escape him w [...]

  21. Laura Hartley

    I didn t really know what to expect when I started reading this book After finishing the entire novel, I reread the synopsis for this book, I have to say that it does not cover the half of what this book is actually about To me, this book was a journey, not just for Carin, but for all the characters When you first meet the characters, you think that you know them and their story, but trust me, you don t.There are really only six characters throughout the whole book, with the main focus being on [...]

  22. Michelle

    This was a good read I really enjoyed the story and I liked watching it unfold and grow as the book went on That s how I felt about Waterspell, the story just keeps getting bigger and bigger It s like an iceberg, with 90% of its mass being underwater, I feel like I still have only seen the tip I totally understand what the main character, Carin kept saying Just when she finds one things out there are at least two questions that come to her mind This book left things so open that I could see it [...]

  23. Petra

    hazelthewitch 2012In the beginning a wise woman tells Carin, the main character, to go North, as she does not belong in the South Then we see Carin as she trespasses Lord Verek s land He threatens to kill her unless she explains how she could enter his land, which is protected by powerful spells It is obvious she is immune to magic, but why And so the complicated story begins.At first I thought the writing was too wordy, but then I got used to it and actually, it suits the story I also liked how [...]

  24. Margot

    originally posted atHow I see it reviews I always like doing tour stops, and Waterspell sounded very intriguing, so I signed up for this tour immediately I was not disappointed by it, but it was not what I expected it to be at all I will give this book a thumbs up, because high fantasy books are epic always The main character, Carin, was captured by an angry wizard, and that was the best thing about this books plot Angry evil wizards are amazing Also, I loved the enormous influence Alice in Wond [...]

  25. Beth Hobson

    The beginning wasn t my favorite, it seemed a little awkward and it took me probably a chapter before I started warming up to the story By that point I d gotten used to the authors style of writing and before I knew it the book was finished and I was left wanting .It s a fun read and reminded me slightly of Beauty and the Beast, which happens to be one of my favorite Disney Fairy Tales Deborah obviously did her research and put a lot of time and effort into the book Her love of literature is pla [...]

  26. Twiggy Piggy

    The Warlock has room for improvement, but I definitely enjoyed reading this book Even if the Alice in Wonderland hook was a little overused, the way Lightfoot used it to develop her story and Carin s background was imaginative and unexpected Personally, I would have preferred the story to omit the entire romance part there IS some development if you really squint but hey, they say that love transcends all , right Very little, if any, profanity and will probably appeal mostly to girls 8th grade a [...]

  27. Hamster

    Ms Lightfoot wrote a great article in the SCBWI magazine about the usefulness of She even mentioned how reviews like, WOW, THIS IS SOOO GOOD made her day.Sadly, I didn t share this quoted fan s enthusiasm for the book Couldn t even finish the first chapter, it felt so all over the place and first draftish But that s the great thing about The author can connect with those that looooooove her work, and not those who wish they could get those wasted fifteen minutes of their life back.
