The Wizard and the Warlord by M.R. Mathias {Review}


The Wardstone Trilogy Book 3
Mathias did a great job at concluding the series in the last book The Wizard and the Warlord. He introduces us to a very magical world. This book in particular was very descriptive, or maybe I already had a clear image of everything so reading the third book was a breeze, either way I really enjoyed the last book of this trilogy.

As a fantasy book, this book and series did not disappoint. It has great descriptions making the story very easy to visualize. I found the ending to the series to be very dramatic and captivating, making reading the whole series a well worth adventure.

At times it felt like it was becoming a bit rushed, with excitement to the finale. Again, it could have been my own excitement trying to fly through the pages to conclude all the build up that occurred throughout the trilogy. There were some characters I had grown very attached to during the three books, that had no definitive conclusion making me a bit frustrated, but maybe it’s a clue to a spin off series by Mathias.

This book, being the last in the series, could probably even be read as a stand-alone book considering how much information is given, but I would still recommend starting with book one, since Mathias takes you on quite a long and fun ride. It includes new characters, as well as continuation of the characters from the previous books.

I did notice a few inconsistencies throughout the book that were distracting, and left things unexplained. It wasn’t enough of a problem for me to not say I loved this series, and will probably read it again in the future to fill in the spots I probably missed by my own excitement flying through the pages. I give this book and the entire trilogy a 5/5.
