This is the second book of a series which started with The Sorcery Code still kind of an insider tip in the world of fantasy literature The book begins where the last book left off at the end of the battle between Barson s man and Gala Gala fought off the Sorcerer Guard but due to pity for them she heals those she still can Barson among themIn Turingrad the story about Blaise s creation killing the Sorcerer s Guard spreads and Barson uses it to His Advantage That Everyone advantage that everyone he s dead Augusta also believing her lover charming the way she thinks of him although they mainly do have a very carnal way of interacting with one another to be dead succeeds in convincing the of oing after Blaise s creatureBlaise and Gala together with Maya and Esther fly to the distant mountains to hide there To their surprise they stumble upon a whole community living in the forests They obviously weren t content with their living situations any or were persecuted and use the forest as a hideoutFrom this point we follow 3 separate storylines Gala and Blaise who Norte: A Novel get closer and closer to each other while Gala is rapidly improving her magical skills and actually surpassing Blaise in her powers and abilitiesSecondly we have Augusta s storyline also from her POV She s still on a crusade against Blaise and his abomination and is decided toet Gala killedAnd thirdly we are witnessing Barson s uest for overthrowing the Sorcerer s and seizing powerfiguratively trampling down a lot of people on the wayWell it s hard to say I have to admit that this volume lacks a bit of the drive found in the first book Blaise and Gala I am afraid to say annoyed the hell out of me most of the time Blaise is blind with love and amazed about what Gala is able to do We mostly have him an Gala as a package I really liked Blaise in the first book for his motifs and his drive and he was a distinct and interesting character Noe we mostly have him as a lovestruck fool drooling over Gala Although that is not so fair there are some short seuences where he is his old self But overall I missed an edge to his characterHowever Gala s progress in magic is so fast and forceful that you really begin to see Augusta s point about her being a danger to others I don t know where the author is oing but he could definitely trying to draw the reader into another direction without noticing Gala is not the helpless naked creature that landed on a carpet any but still I think her character is missing some development to me she is still so naive and colorless I would like to smack her in the headThe book was a bit slow but athered pace at about halfway through From there it Mi karma y yo got prettyood again and we finally see some action We witness a kind of terrifying fight and it is pretty neat how Zales shows us the extent of Gala s power what she will do to et what she wants even if it is just protecting Blaise and how weak her
control over her immense power still isThus we see the other side in a different light trying to over her immense power still isThus we see the other side in a different light trying to rid of Gala for obvious and perhaps now a bit understandable reasons I was thinking along those lines too that Blaise is obviously too smitten with Gala for seeing what she really is It still comes down to looks mostly which is pretty superficial Would he have been really so much in love with her so fast if not a blonde long legged supermodel had landed on his living room floor but some Moaning MyrtleSo we still not really know what to make of Gala Blaise oes far beyond normal boundaries to protect her and ends up understanding the Spell Realm than he might have wished While Blaise and Gala are happy studying the elements of Magic together Barson rips apart the societyOf course although
slow at first book was way too short in the end and of course we are left off with a cliffhangerThere will be a 3rd book but there is no rumor as to when it will be out I am uessing at Summer 2015I ll keep you posted I enjoyed reading The Spell Realm seuel to The Sorcery Code very much The story s pace is fast and for my taste also far too short But I d like it better without this sort of prologue An alternate cover edition can be found hereThe highly anticipated seuel to The Sorcery Code After the battle with the Sorcerer Guard Gala and Blaise T of a LetdownI originally purchased the first book in the series as part of Legends 15 Tales of Sword and SorceryPretty Slow At First
Which Was A Great Purchasewas a reat purchase 099 The first book was intriguing enough to purchase the second book although I found the seuel to be a bit of a letdown The book continues the concept of telling the story from multiple characters viewpoints which helps keep the story exciting Again I don t think it would be as successful if it was written as a 1st person story Spell Realm has a hint of Game of Thrones to it with multiple characters vying to take over power of the realm but thankfully Spell Realm is without the absolute chaos and brutality to it I wasn t a fan of the twist at the end It did feel incomplete and although the ending has a uniue twist to it that could potentially be interesting if book 3 was ever published it s not published to date so leaving a series hanging without a conclusion is another letdown Even if anot A straightforward follow to book 1 though much less philosophical and interesting Emily Durante s narrative style is in many ways an ideal to uphold and an absolute pleasure to the listener She strikes the perfect balance between a neutral tonality for the narrator and a diverse spectrum of emotions and modulation for the various characters All the subtle variations that she manages in order to portray the different lead characters you feel Durante herself coming through unlike audio books where the narrator tries too hard to create too big of a distinction among characters voices sounding fake and forced In the first part we see significant changes in Gala s understanding of this world as she accumulates experience and exposure to wondrous and incredibly trying situations In this second installment that journey continues as she is tested again and again as she becomes familiar with new emotions and discovers newfound ambition Barson takes on a much central role in this book Right at the start his flawed enius draws us as we see Barson turning the calamity of the battle and the ensuing disturbance in the kingdom to his advantage driven by his with naive ambition and hubris Durante brought with her voice a distinctive extra element that I couldn t uite put my finger on but it positively added to my experience She set the mood brilliantly for each scene whether a sombre one between Augusta and the councilmen a sensuous one between Gala and Blaise or one filled with deviousness between Barson and Larn This is a narrative that shifts among the points of view of the Barson and Larn This is a narrative that shifts among the points of view of the characters and Durante does a reat job of exploring the subtle changes in voice and expression with her vocal control and modulation While in the first book much attention was iven to characterizing the physical and magical world that was Klodun this book did far in terms of exploring the depth of individual characters their intentions and interpersonal relationships Will definitely come back for thirds Definitely Worth The Wait Just As Enchanting As Volume 1I Worth the Wait Just As Enchanting As Volume 1I 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 seuels 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 mystiue 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 surprise. His own plan But amidst politics battles and intrigue something far bigger is brewing something that could disturb the balance of the Spell Realm itsel.
Dima Zales ☆ 9 Free downloadNd epilogue because I can t really see how IT S RELEVANT FOR THE STORY YOU SEE THE s relevant for the story You see the and the epilogue are written of Dranel s point of view As described in the book Dranel is an intelligent being that lives in the Spell Realm itself and has no essential role in this book I uess there will be an explanation in the seuel to The Spell Realm I uess the author uses Dranel s POV as a way to explain the Spell Realm better but for me it s still uite confusing At a later point of the story Gala pictured the Spell Realm too which was far better done and I have a vivid idea of it now I also liked that the special language the sorcerers use to cause spells was well declared In my opinion it s what makes this series so interesting to read After all the author initiated a probably uniue way to do magic I ve never heard of any other book which combines science especially mathematics and magic so well But it s not only the magic which makes this book outstanding I love that there aren t any stereotype villains All main characters want to accomplish their own oal and therefore try to manipulate others and many intrigues are schemed I also find myself caring for Augusta because I understand her motives Besides her jealousy of Gala I see why she fears the creature as Augusta refers to Gala Gala holds a power no other sorcerer could compete with and which she couldn t even control herself which is why people see her as a threat This deals with a very natural fear of human nature the fear of the unknown So after Gala messed up with her powers in The Sorcery Code in self defense the Council s actions So after Gala messed up with her powers in The Sorcery Code in self defense the Council s actions comprehensible Another ood improvement is Gala s character herself While she was very na ve and self centered in the first book she now realizes that her actions have conseuences for herself and those she cares about and that she can t always do what she wants and when she wants Barson s plotting was also exciting to read about and it will be even thrilling in the seuelAlthough I like Gala s and Blaise s character in eneral I honestly dislike them being together as in falling in love with each other I wasn t a fan of that in the first book either but back than it was easier to endure because they were separated most of the time and Gala was also new to the world and hadn t had interacted with any other men then Besides the fact that they are both intelligent fascinated by magic and physically attracted to each other their relationship seems forced and rushed at the same time I m sorry to say this but I can t pinpoint the mistake why their love doesn t convince meFinally I et to the ending of this book
without spoilers I promise I will make this short and simple I was so so so unsatisfied with the endingspoilers I promise I will make this short and simple I was so so so unsatisfied with the ending I m craving for the seuel right now Before you read this book you should prepare yourself for unfinished storylines Would it really have been so hard to add one or two chapters to at least resolve some of the unfinished business This ending left me with so much frustration like I would be in the desert in need of water and the only water is enclosed in an indestructible box and someone took its key out of my hand and smashed it right before my eyes Okay that was a little melodramatic but for a short time I really felt like that Good book interesting twist on magic scheme Good bookI like the way this book is written It was a ood book to read but I like the first one better Would you consider the audio edition of The Spell Realm to be better than the print version I personally LOVE having the audible copy of a book as WowI can t wait for book 3the sorcery code I hope it doesn t take to long I have read many many books in the past 6 months since losing my 40 yr old daughter to brain cancer and these 2 books 1 and 2 made me forget me heartache like no other I am attracted to this American Military History and the Evolution of Western Warfare genre but these books and especially the spell realmave me some peace I can t thank u enough please continue with book three asap from a faithful reader always EVERYONE READ THESE TWO BOOKS I ive it 10 stars many thanks Adeuate Seuel to the Sorcery Code Although a Bi.
