Blake Charlton (Spellwright #1)

Concept: spells actually made of words and language. Not that you speak things and magic happens; magic is the words. You can alter a gargoyle's life by fiddling about with the words that make it up. I had high hopes here; maybe a Wiz Biz that's modernised and with a less whiny Wiz? Libriomancer but about language? But... it's written for kids. That's a pejorative. Actual kids don't have to be written down to like this. I couldn't bear it, after about two chapters.
