Book Review: Blood of the Sorcerer

Love will be tested, great powers will emerge, secrets will be revealed, and hearts will break over a death no one saw coming….

Princess Alannah hoped that upon her arrival in Anrad, things would begin to look up. But she comes to find that the warrior fae that she has fallen in love with is truly the Prince of Anrad and has been betrothed to another by his dying father. Isibeal, his betrothed, is beautiful, strong, and hiding a secret that Alannah is determined to reveal.

Adding to her worries, her sister Evyette has set off on a journey to uncover her increasingly mysterious past. Finally discovering who she is and where she came from, Evyette will find that some things are better left unknown. As Tristan and Kaleb help Eveytte through this discovery, she is yanked from their clutches by Samil who has volunteered her as the final sacrifice for him to remain in this realm.

Will Alannah succeed in her training at the hands of Master Jadoc, the Elder Faerie and still make it in time to join Tristan and Kaleb in stopping Samil? Will Brennus go against his dying father's last request and follow his heart?

REVIEW:
When I was asked to read and review this book, I had to say yes. I loved the first book of the series, as I recall, I had lots of questions, so I had to read the second one too.

Truth be told, not a thing changes when it comes to the writing. The scenes are small and we get to know many different aspects of the book, since it’s not written by any point of view. The descriptions make the story vivid and alive so much, that there were times I was dreaming of the beautiful places in the book.

As for the characters, many things change here as they get more mature and they keep learning more and more things. Same thing applies for the bad guys as well.
Alannah starts her training. Again, many great scenes described by the author, since as I said in the previous review, she can write really great fight scenes.
Evyette gets to know many things about her past that many times I was left with my eyes wide open.
And as for the guys, Tristan, Kaleb and Brennus, I have to admit that there are all so great characters that I can’t choose among them. They are so nice to the girls and the others around them, and they are also very brave.

Unfortunately, many sad things happen, that I’ll not say. They were sad and unfair and I think I cried once or twice. Also, the book ends with a major cliff hanger. So much as I thought I didn’t have the rest of the book and the author forgot to send me the rest. I was going to send an e-mail to her, when I thought better, and re-read the few last paragraphs some times, to understand that that was the end of the book.

Bottom line, I liked it. It was as great as the first one, actually, I little better than the first. I can’t wait to read the next one as soon as possible, because I have to learn the conclusion of the story.
