Sam of Wilds faced the Dark wizard Myrin and lived to tell the tale. Granted, the battle left him scarred, but things could be a hell of a lot worse.
It’s not until he reunites with Morgan of Shadows and Randall that he realizes just how much worse things could be.
Because the scars have meaning and hint at Myrin’s true plans for Sam and the Kingdom of Verania.
With time running out, Sam and his band of merry misfits—the unicorn Gary, the half-giant Tiggy, Knight Commander Ryan Foxheart, and the dragon known as Kevin—must travel to the snowy mountains in the North and the heart of the Dark Woods to convince the remaining dragons to stand against Myrin. Along the way, Sam learns secrets of the past that will forever change the course of the future.
A reckoning is coming for Sam of Wilds, and there is nothing he can do to stop it.
"Because it’s always been you, Sam. I promise. I promise. I promise, because when I look upon these stars, there is nothing I wish for more than you."
Did you hear that sound? It was the sound of my heart shattering . And that other sound? That would be TJ cackling, the evil rat-bastard. I'm not going to tell you why my heart is in bitty bits on the floor, though. I wouldn't do that to you. Or to TJ. Lets just suffice it to say I want book 4 right the frak now! Also, I might be plotting TJ's demise...just a little. But don't worry, I'll give TJ a chance to redeem himself -- we'd better get an EPIC happy at the end of book 4, though. Just sayin'.
Where do I even begin with this review? The Consumption of Magic was everything I hoped it would be, and also everything I feared it would be...scratch that...TJ managed to show me fears I didn't even know I had.
If there's a theme I can pin down here, it would be 'consequences'. Sam has to face the consequences of, not only his actions, but also the past actions of Morgan and Randall. Mistakes have been made and secrets kept and feelings of betrayal cut deep.
