  9. This could be the poster child for a book that needsediting Spellwright is equal parts complex yet confounding, intriguing yet boring It simultaneously stokes that fire for fantasy that first launched me into writing my own stories waaay back when I was a wee pre teen, reminding me of those halcyon days of lying crosswise in an armchair, reading the Belgariad or chunky 600 page Recluce hardbacks, not a care in the world because there was no school and I didn t have a job Ahhhh, youth F This could be the poster child for a book that needsediting Spellwright ...
