This story took quite a time to move forward. I felt that there was to much padding spreading the story line out. I liked the concept and the mix of characters and feel that Jon could have been given more skills with his magic to better cope with the challenges set for him.
The King's Sorcerer is another fantastic addition to B T Narro's library. Set in a new world with new magic had me grabbing this one on the day of release. Brian always creates great and unique magical systems, which in this case I still can't grasp. Never the less I enjoyed the story anyway. It is fast-paced and well written but I found the self-taught aspect a bit unbelievable, give them access to the library soon. However, with the return of his iconic creature (read his other books to find out they are great) It has me asking "Why do they appear in both worlds?" "Is it really another world or just a different continent, with different magic". I hope he answers this in future books of the series. It is an enjoyable read with interesting characters whom I hope he delves into more along the way.
This book grabbed my attention from the beginning and held it for the entire book, I was soooooooo disappointed to realise that book 2 was not yet written, I have subscribed to the be notified when book 2 is realised, I look forward to it as it was getting to the nitty gritty of the story
I really enjoyed this book. It started out as a typical magical adventure story with the main character knowing that he somehow had magical ability but not knowing how to use it. The story progressed however and eventually he was taught together with other like minded people from different backgrounds. Sounds boring? No, not really. The magic was based on a musical concept and was different from that used by other authors. If you like a laid back easy reading story with magical and battle action, try this book. I will certainly read the next books in this series.
