It’s time for the third book in the series that I have been reading and reviewing.
“The Fatewreaker“, written by M.K. Wiseman, is a YA / Adult Historical Fantasy novel, the third book in the Bookminder series, published on June 8, 2021.
I want to thank Rachel, at Rachel’s Random Resources, M.K. Wiseman for the eCopy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
England, 1680 A. D.
Liara and Nagarath’s enemy has unexpectedly come to their aid, surrendering to the magick-suppressing forces of the king of France so as to buy time for their escape. But that doesn’t necessarily mean Anisthe is on their side. Vrsar’s war mage, Liara’s father-in-magick, has never been a man do to things for others. And he has always has plans within plans.
In fleeing to England with his apprentice, the Wizard Nagarath realizes that Liara’s power is no longer her own to command. With the shattering of Khariton’s magick mirror in the Palace of Versailles, the young woman has become trapped in an alliance with the ancient and evil mage. What is more, at eighteen-years-old, her life remains tied to Anisthe’s for another two years per the Laws of Magick. Anisthe, who is now imprisoned for having helped them evade the king’s spellpiercers.
Forced to revisit his own past, Nagarath is finally learning that there are some histories you cannot outrun. As for Liara, the darkness within her heart is greater than she ever could have imagined. This after Dvigrad’s orphaned magpie having finally learned to love. For, in the words of Khariton himself, “In magick you can never have friends. Only rivals.”

After having read the previous books, I recommend you read them in order. The experience of this series is so much better if you have all the facts and if you see the story unfold book after book.
With each journey that Liara and Nagarath go through, we learn more about the world and the Magick system. Plus, I love to see their development and how they dealt with the issues arising. Plus I loved to see the consistency in their personalities, even if some thing change and relationship grow and they have to get strong and all that, I loved the little elements about the characters that made me love them the first time.
I still love the historical feel it had, it was fun to see how the author connected the history, the cities and the reality with the fiction aspects. I love the fantasy in the book and I just want more books in this universe.
Overall, I love the book. I loved the series. It was unique, it was fun, it was like going back to that feeling I first had when I read a fantasy book when I was a teenager. And I will continue to be on the look-out for future books by this author.
