In this story, Starwick -- shadow of the King, who had killed people in the name of the royalty -- had been in love with Tyrwick, the king's bastard son. But Starwick thought that Trywick hated his guts. Then Starwick took a deadly curse that was meant for the heir, and he must travel with Tyrwick to find the cure I had to check Wick to remind me who Starwick was.
Okay, so Starwick used to be Creawick's lover before he left at that time Creawick thought this his own brother, Tokiwick, stole Starwick. I had to admit, the whole "wicks" names was making my head spin!!! It's rather hard to keep up with who is whom. I didn't like this as much as I wanted. I thought there wasn't enough characters set up for both Starwick or Trywick. In fact, Starwick was rather bland -- he lacked the endearing feature of Tokiwick or the complex nature of Creawick you still with me, people?
Though when Trywick finally told Starwick what he really felt, it was delicious View all 3 comments.

This story is familiar, with all the same characters making their presence and a similar storyline: a slowly working killing curse which needs to be reversed by finding the thief of a powerful ring belonging to the royal family. Starwick is a frostwick. A wick is a magic user, and Starwick so titled because of his abilities has t Review posted at The Armchair Reader.
A wick is a magic user, and Starwick so titled because of his abilities has the power to manipulate water, with the specific emphasis on it's frozen states. He's also a Shadow, a mysterious hand of the King of Lyus who carries out his duties -- however sinister they may be.
The job, as well as his past at the academy with the brothers Creawick and Tokiwick which we met in the original book , have left him a shell of what he used to be, barely liking who he has become to survive in life. On a job with the crown prince of Lyus, a powerful charmwick sets a curse upon the crown prince in order to steal the his ring, and Starwick takes the curse instead, saving the prince's life.
Now, he's in an even more special kind of hell, as he once again has to suffer the close proximity of the one he loves, who in turn hates him.
Tyrwick, a swordwick magic and warrior combination is the oldest prince to the King, but a bastard, and known well for his cold, honest, and harsh demeanor. The two will have to venture through the winter to the kingdom of Draius to find him, hopefully before the curse kills Starwick.
This is very much in line with the first group of stories, where we met the first four couples. In fact, this could have easily been in that compilation, only my feeling of meeting old friends in the way they're introduced made it feel like a sequel.

I would recommend that readers read Wick first however, because much of the way the world and magic works is explained in that book, not to mention most of the secondary cast in this story. If you read this without that knowledge, you'd miss most of the interpersonal relationships between all of them, many of which mean a great deal to this story, especially the past animosity between Creawick and Tokiwick, and their relationships with Starwick.
The relationship here between Starwick and Tyrwick is okay, though the story is too short for more than a little bit of story and intrigue in the plot with the theif and more than a cursory bit into their relationship.
They're both rather bull-headed, and they fight constantly, which added a little fire and interesting interplay between the two. But, like I said before, this is just skimming the surface of their relationship, and it would have been really nice to see more than that.

Of course, I knew that this was the story that I was going to read, and I still enjoyed it immensely, and not only because I like this world and was excited to step back into it. Recommended for Derr fans or anyone looking for a light fantasy. Readers who liked Wick will enjoy stepping back into the world and seeing favorite characters again, though they should know that this is a short story, where the original book was a total of four, giving a much broader view of the world and characters. I definitely enjoyed it Apr 05, Heller rated it liked it Shelves: m-m , fantasy.
A nice continuation of the characters from Wick. Feb 26, Deeze rated it really liked it Shelves: more-story-than-sex , quick-easy-reads. The last Wick so far and a enjoyable tale. I did find Tyrwick was rather still a mystery by the end.

No real background on him, and we never heard from his familiar at all, which maybe is why I felt this one was lacking somehow. Still a sweet and worthwhile read to this series, just maybe not quite as emotional for me as the last 3 stories. Dec 05, qx rated it liked it Shelves: have. There wasn't much fleshing out of the characters and the sort of mystery-hunt for the thief mostly played out in the background with not a whole lot happening there.
Also, the love 2. Also, the love interest was rather typically cranky-or-reticent, making it easier for MC to think the love interest hates him. So 3 stars for "liked it" minus a bit.

Dec 31, Teetee rated it liked it. I liked this story starting off, I thought the premise was good and the build-up coming along nicely, but the further I got into the story the more things unraveled. In the beginning he is a sympathetic person, but further on, he became kind of bratty! Dec 30, Kris rated it liked it. While this had very little to do with the previous storyline, I think I liked this one the most out of all of the Wick stories.
Jan 02, Sars rated it liked it. Really enjoyed this, but just wished it had been longer. Would love to read more of this world and a more drawn out version of this particular story. Sep 04, Morgana rated it liked it Shelves: fantasy , megan-derr. Aug 17, Katherine rated it really liked it.

With pre-season now in full flow, the squad were this week bolstered by the inclusion of several Fosroc Scottish Rugby Academy players who will look to make a mark this coming campaign. Boyle was named Scotland U20 captain ahead of the U20 Six Nations and led from the front in a campaign where he started all five matches, scoring two tries in the process.

Having made his Scotland U20 debut against Italy in the opening match of the U20 Six Nations, Blain went on to enjoy an ever-present year representing the thistle and scored a number of memorable tries — one of which came in the win over Wales at Meggetland. Now a key man for capital side Currie Chieftains, Frostwick has developed in the number nine jersey and made his Scotland U20 debut against Italy in the opening match of the U20 Six Nations.
