I really enjoyed the first book of this series by Dima Zales and Anna Zaires, The Sorcery Code, and so I was very excited when the second book came out. Once again, I was completely satisfied with the story, the authors, and the narrator. And, once again, I will be eagerly awaiting the next book in this series!

The story line of The Spell Realm begins right where it left off in The Sorcery Code, and the characters all are the same people we came to know and adore in the first story. I was very happy about that since sometimes; authors decide to take the characters in entirely new directions of personality in sequels. I was also happy to find that Emily Durante was the narrator for this second book because I loved her use of voice in the first volume. Emily perfectly captures the personality elements for each of the characters, and through her, we are right there with Blaise, Gala, and all the others as they make their way in this wonderful world of magic and mystique.

If you haven’t read, or listened to The Spell Realm yet, I suggest you do so as soon as you can. You won’t be disappointed, but you will be surprised!

The Sorcery Code by Dima Zales and Anna Zaires
This book was very enjoyable from the opening line until the last sentence, and I cannot wait for the next book in the series. The world that these authors have created is very elaborate, and they have done an excellent job of inviting their listeners in, and making us feel at home. The writing is descriptive and natural, and it is very easy to relate to the characters. The story offers much to its listeners, laughter, sexual tension, drama, and hope. The hope is the best part I think, you just want everything to work out for everyone, just like in our own real lives. Another thing that makes this book worth listening to again, other than just the story – is the narrator, she does such an incredible job bringing this world and these people to life. If you are looking for a terrific story to fill some time in your day, you should definitely spend that time with The Sorcery Code.
