SPELLBOUND is the second book in acclaimed debut author Blake Charlton’s exciting and original trilogy, following on from SPELLWRIGHT.
Nicodemus Weal is a cacographer, unable to reproduce even simple magical texts without 'misspelling' – a mistake which can have deadly consequences. Exiled from the wizard academy Starhaven and on the run from the powerful wizards who believe he is the Storm Petrel – the anti-Halcyon who will bring about the end of magical language – Nicodemus is faced with overwhelming obstacles to prove his cacography can be used for good and not evil.
Meanwhile, a demon is on the loose with one aim: to bring to life a true dragon and wreak havoc on the world. Only if Nicodemus can learn to come to terms with his disability and master Language Prime can he hope to stop the impeding War of Disjunction and save the world from the demon Typhon.

Praise for SPELLWRIGHT:
'Blake Charlton has not only invented a fascinating world and peopled it with realistic people and wonderful, grisly monsters, but he has also created one of the few truly original magical systems we've seen in fantasy fiction… I'm fascinated to see what happens next and will be following every word with the absorption of an apprentice spellwright. You will be, too' Tad Williams
'Nicodemus Weal is a protagonist that all of us can identify with. SPELLWRIGHT features a unique system of magic and characters that are genuine inhabitants of that world. SPELLWRIGHT is a letter-perfect story: an absorbing read and recommended.' Robin Hobb
‘An enthralling tale’ Terry Brooks
'A clever conceit well executed adds a flair of originality to this wizard-in-training fantasy. A spellcaster who can't spell – in both senses of the word! Fast-paced and well-written, SPELLWRIGHT is an enjoyable read’ Kevin J. Anderson
‘SPELLWRIGHT [is] a refreshingly different fantasy novel… enjoyably well-written, with a satisfying conclusion that leaves plenty of room for the inevitable sequel’ SFXAbout the Author:
Severe dyslexia kept Blake Charlton from reading fluently until he was twelve. Because of this, everyone – including Blake – believed that he would never attend college. Ten years later he graduated summa cum laude from Yale University. Blake is currently studying at Stanford Medical School. Spellwright is his first novel.
