THE SORCERY CODE
(Caution some Spoilers)
The main character’s name is Blaise and he is an outcast from the Sorcerer's Council after the Council was responsible for his brothers death. He is dead set on making it so even the lowliest person in the kingdom will be able to do magic and help improve their lives. He set out to accomplish this by creating a magic artifact that would allow anyone to wield the magical powers that he is able to wield. The outcome of his project ended up being more complicated than he could have ever imagined. There was not an artifact in the middle of his room there was a completely Nude young women in the middle of his room where the artifact should have been.
The Sorcery Code is a great mash up of Magic and computer coding from my gatherings after reading this book over the weekend. My Family and I were going out of town and being the book junkie that I am, I needed to get a new book to read/Listen to for the drive to go see family. The first thing that caught my attention is how the sorcerers had to make cards that were basically a shorthand of the magic spell. They referred to this as “Coding” and it reminded me of website coding for making web pages
I love fantasy and Sci-Fi books and this one had been on my list to read when I had finished a few other series on my wish list. I was able to get the #SorceryCode for free in exchange for my honest opinion, so I decided to move it to the front of my list for my weekend trip. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the story caught my attention and kept it up until the end of the book, leaving me wanting to hurry and get the second one to find out what was going to happen.
There could have been some more time spent on developing the characters a little more but over all it was not a complete downfall of the book. I imagine that in the 2nd book there will be some more character development to get to know them better. Gala after all was just created so there is not a lot to her character yet. I am excited to see how her magic progresses and expands and be able to see all the things she might be able to do.
Over all I am very happy with this book and the author's writing style. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a great book that is not very hard to read. I used the narration on it so I could listen to it and drive at the same time. I personally love listening to books more than reading but then again I am always driving it seems so it makes it nice to be able to listen to books. You can get this book from this link #SorceryCode
