Ferius Parfax Book 1: 'Way Of The Argosi' By Sebastien De Castell Brings Us Back To The World Of 'Spellsinger'

Ferius Parfax will get a new series all of her own, bringing us back once again to the world of Spellsinger. After the closing chapter of Crownbreaker by Sebastien de Castell I thought that was last story we would ever have in this world. And I am glad I was wrong! So that means we will be getting two books from this author next year together with another new series-opener, Court of Shadows Book 1: Play of Shadows!

The Ferius Parfax series is said to be a prequel series that will serve as origin story of the wandering gambler titular character and, as the title of first book suggests, the Way of the Argosi. The official cover has been unvieled by the author himself and you can't help but wonder, can't this be published any sooner?

Check out the official cover of Way of the Argosi by Sebastien de Castell.

Way of the Argosi by Sebastien de Castell


'The Alchemist' meets 'The Three Musketeers'--with card tricks. A brilliant origin story of adventure, wit and philosophy to enrapture devotees as well as newcomers to the 'Spellsinger' series.

Ferius Parfax has a simple plan: kill every last inhabitant of the spell-gifted nation that destroyed her people, starting with the man who murdered her parents. Killing mages is a difficult and dangerous business, of course, but when she meets the inimitable and extraordinary Durrall Brown she discovers that physical strength is not the only way to defeat evil of all kinds.

So Ferius undertakes to study the ways of the Argosi: the loosely-knit tribe of tricksters known for getting the better of even the most powerful of spellcasters. But the Argosi have a price for their teachings, and by the time Ferius learns what it is, it may be too late.

Perfect for fans of The Dark Tower, Firefly, Terry Pratchett, Ben Aaronovitch and Jim Butcher.

Way of the Argosi by Sebastien de Castell will be released on April 15, 2021.
