Publisher's Summary

Nicodemus is a young, gifted wizard with a problem. Magic in his world requires the caster to create spells by writing out the text...but he has always been dyslexic and thus has trouble casting even the simplest of spells. And his misspells could prove dangerous, even deadly, should he make a mistake in an important incantation. Yet he has always felt that he is destined to be something more than a failed wizard.
When a powerful, ancient evil begins a campaign of murder and disruption, Nicodemus starts to have disturbing dreams that lead him to believe that his misspelling could be the result of a curse. But before he can discover the truth about himself, he is attacked by an evil that has already claimed the lives of fellow wizards and has cast suspicion on his mentor. He must flee for his own life if he's to find the true villain. But more is at stake than his abilities. For the evil that has awakened is a power so dread and vast that if unleashed, it will destroy Nicodemus...and the world.

it was a good book

I really loved the world and the idea behind the magic. I however found parts of it very annoying. the book would often jump forward in certain areas leaving parts out entirely or it would go back and explain what happened a little bit further on. it made little hiccups in the story that was confusing and I had to rewind and make sure I hadn't just missed something. it really pulled you out of the story.

Overall I will probably read more books of this series but I have no drive to look for them right away.

Dyslexic Wizard in world w/ Magic through Language

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I would recommend the book to fans of High Fantasy, with lots of politics, and requiring some mental investment.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I like the idea of a dyslexic wizard in a word where magic relies on reading and writing in multiple languages. However, the language angle also distracts from the action at times. The many factions also mean you need to be paying close attention to follow the audio edition.

Was Spellwright worth the listening time?

I liked the book, but I think it might be better read in print instead of listened to. Of course, your mileage may vary.
