Blog Tour: The Wysard by Deborah J. Lightfoot

Young Adult/New Adult Literary Fantasy
Book #2 in the Waterspell Series

WATERSPELL Book 1: The Warlock
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, follow the clues in a bewitched poem, conjure a dragon from a pool of magic—and tread carefully around a seductive but volatile, emotionally scarred sorcerer who can’t seem to decide whether to love her or kill her. "Carin and Verek’s well-crafted relationship balances in a tense power struggle … intriguing premise and original characters … Fine fantasy." —KIRKUS

WATERSPELL Book 2: The Wysard
After blundering into the last stronghold of magic, Carin discovers that she is right to fear the wizard Verek. He is using her to seal the ruptures in the void, and she may be nothing more to him than an expendable weapon. What will he do with her—or to her—when his world is again secure? Or has he erred in believing that the last bridge has been broken? The quest may not, in fact, be over … and Lord Verek may find himself not quite as willing to dispose of his fiery water-sylph, Carin, as he once believed himself to be.

My Review:
This is Young Adult in age, but Epic in Fantasy. Please note, this is a 2nd in a series and you should definitely read The Warlock first as this is a continuation of the story. You will definitely want to have this one on hand if you read book #1 though, because the first leaves you hanging. 

Its not often that a sequel can overshadow a debut, but that is exactly what happened here. I think the fact that I was already introduced to the characters and world helped Deborah J. Lightfoot weave an even more exciting tale with this novel. 

Imaginative, Exciting, plenty of action, and even an ending that will leave you satisfied. That doesn't always happen with books in the middle of the series (this is 2nd of 4).

Castles in the cornfield provided the setting for Deborah J. Lightfoot’s earliest flights of fancy. On her father’s farm in Texas, she grew up reading tales of adventure and reenacting them behind ramparts of sun-drenched grain. She left the farm to earn a degree in journalism and write award-winning books of history and biography. High on her Bucket List was the desire to try her hand at the genre she most admired. The result is WATERSPELL, a multi-layered fantasy trilogy about a girl and the wizard who suspects her of being so dangerous to his world, he believes he'll have to kill her ... which troubles him, since he's fallen in love with her. Waterspell Book 1: The Warlock; Book 2: The Wysard; and Book 3: The Wisewoman

  1. Thank you, EverLeigh, for hosting this stop on my blog tour, and thank you for the wonderful review! I'm so happy you are enjoying Waterspell. Many questions are answered in Book 3: The Wisewoman, so I hope you will continue on. You mentioned that The Wysard is No. 2 of 4, but actually Waterspell is a trilogy. The three books are published. I'm still mulling over the possibility of a fourth book ... Maybe yes, maybe no. :-) Thanks again!
