I was very eagerly awaiting the sequel to The Sorcery Code by Dima Zales, and I have to say that I wasn’t disappointed. The story picks up exactly as I had wanted it to, and I was left feeling as though I had to keep listening to hear what would happen next. All of the elements that I love about a story can be found in this series. Great characters that you want to scheme along with. Exciting plot that keeps you on the edge wondering what each character is going to do next. Fantastic imagery that helps put you into the story. The fantasy elements add just the right touch without taking away from the story itself. Overall, this is a series I suggest that anyone loves a good story should pick up as this has a little bit of everything. Romance, revenge, intrigue are all intertwined throughout the story that keeps it anything but boring.

Any additional comments?

The Sorcery Code by Dima Zales and Anna Zaires is a must read that needs to be added to your list for 2014. Emily Durante is an excellent narrator who is able to capture the right tone for the book by giving a unique inflection for each character that totally works. As a fan of fantasy and romance, the authors lured me in and kept my attention from chapter one.The characters step off the page, and lodge themselves fully in your mind as you get deeper into the book. The writing style adds to this as it keeps the reader’s attention by creating a high tension effect from alternating characters. Each chapter is from a different character’s viewpoint, which gives the book a cliffhanger feel at the end of every chapter where you want to get back to the events that were just revealed. It is the perfect way to get a reader addicted to wanting to know what is going to happen next to the characters as the story unfolds. This is a true page-turner that had me not wanting to hit pause for anything.The fantasy elements blend wonderfully with the story and do not take away from the plotline as some fantasies seem more interested in the world it is set in and lets the characters take a more secondary role. That is certainly not true for this story as you find you really connect with the characters. Each character’s purpose and reason for acting the way they do in the book is clear to see and adds to how the reader feels for them. You can feel for Augusta’s rage when she first confronts Blaise, and for Blaise’s growing feelings. Without giving away any spoilers, I’ll tell you this: I’m eagerly awaiting the next book in the series and checking out the other series by this author duo!
