Spellwright - Blake Charlton
Charlton treats spell crafting/casting/use in a way different than I've come across before. The concept of how dyslexia would interact with magic users is fantastically executed and has some delightful wordplay as a result. I definitely had to go back and reread the beginning after I missed what was being done, and then carefully proceed with the rest to notice the deliberate misspellings and word plays.The story itself follows a 'disabled' magic user, one who is inadvertently at the center of plots and contention due to possible connections between himself and a prophesy. The first in a series the story is not complete by itself, but brings a new light to the genre of high magic and self-discovery fantasy.
