Quick Book Review | Spellsmith and Carver: Magicians’ Rivalry

Magician’s Rivalry is a magically fun read filled with realistic relationships, troubled backstories, and of course magic!

An estranged son. An adopted heir. A magical attack that forces them to work together.

The disappearance of Auric Spellsmith’s mother has strained his relationship with his father to the breaking point. Now, after five years away at the Magicians’ Academy, Auric returns home, determined to prove himself to his father and claim his birthright.

Apprentice Jericho Carver has held Spellsmith Manor together in Auric’s absence. Now his master’s son is back, and if he can’t get rid of Auric, Jericho will forfeit his career and lose all hope of wooing the master’s enchanting daughter.

Neither man intends to back down.

But then Master Spellsmith vanishes into the mysterious Fey Lands. With Fey magic threatening the mortal realm, Auric and Jericho must work together to save the man they both see as father.

The book starts out in the not-so-modern world before it takes a dive into the Fey Lands. It is a nice mixture of normal and the unknown. The characters were fleshed out, each with their own quirks, and backstory. I did, at times, got Auric and Jericho confused with each other but that could have been on me. The story starts off steady before kicking it into gear (and you’ll know when that happens). Down the rabbit hole! Oh and there’s a mechanical fox.
