Spellwright by Blake Charlton

ISBN: 9780765317278
Publisher: Tor
Pages: 350

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. 

Even though it took me quite a while to read Spellwright and at times it was a bit complicated, I really enjoyed reading it! My favourite character was Shannon because of his caring nature and determination.
I really like the cover of Spellwright, the subtle meaning of the image and it's colours makes it all the more beautiful.
