The Sorcery Code Book Review and Giveaway
Publication date: December, 2013
Genres: Adult, Fantasy, Romance
From the internationally bestselling authors who brought you the Krinar Chronicles comes a captivating tale of intrigue, love, and danger in a world where sorcery is entwined with science . . .
Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her.
She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of. She will do anything to experience the world . . . even leave the man she is beginning to fall for.
Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancée, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . .
In the Sorcery Code sorcerers have all the power and of course the magic. Some sorcerers even have their own territories. Blaise is different than most sorcerers because he actually cares about regular humans and wants to create an object that will help everyone do magic. Instead of an object he creates a woman! The woman's name is Gala and even though she is supposed to be very powerful she doesn't know her powers or how to control them. She is a very curious woman and that gets her into trouble everywhere she goes. This story is told in Blaise, Gala, Augusta, and Barson's point of view so you get to know the characters pretty well. I loved Blaise and Gala right away but in the beginning of the story I couldn't stand Augusta. As I got to know her I felt like I understood her better even though I don't agree with her way of thinking. Barson is just annoying! But anyways the story is really good and I would give it four out of five stars.
