Today is the blog tour for Wizard Ring by Clare Blanchard. Thank you to Damppebbles Blog Tours for allowing me to participate today. Check out my review and let me know what you think!
I knew nothing about the alchemist John Dee until one winter’s night in Prague when I met the ghost of a barber.
My name is Sylvia. I was just a burnt-out teacher with a subversive sense of humour. Then my mother gave me a magic ring made in the Prague workshop of John Dee.
I’ve never been the same since.

Wizard Ring is an interesting start to the series. It was compelling and a bit complicated, but as I got into it, it became more entertaining and I enjoyed it.
I really enjoyed the history of the ring and found the magic to be intriguing. I also enjoyed the characters and found them realistic and felt they reacted to situations in an appropriate way.
Overall, I enjoyed Wizard Ring and am looking forward to the rest of the series. I recommend checking it out!

Originally from the North Yorkshire coast in England, Clare Blanchard spent half her lifetime in Czechia in Central Europe, where her books are mainly set. Inspired by noir fiction, her settings are often like another character in the plot. She writes crime mysteries and dark urban fantasy with a historical twist.
Clare loves beautiful landscapes and architecture, cross-country skiing, the wine of South Moravia, and of course Czech beer. When she’s not being literary she knits funky socks.
