The night has lifted and Sara Fairchild is out for blood. But this time, it’s her own. A gifted fighter and a skilled battle mage, Sara is now fighting everything she stands for — her heritage. For too long, she has held onto the certainty that her father was an honorable man.

But what does honor mean when you’re at war and surrounded by corruption from all sides? As Sara Fairchild brings the Kades to their knees and manages to capture a prize that rivals Nissa Sardonien’s worth to imperial intelligence, she has to wonder — how far should she go to extract the secrets her Empress and her empire needs?

As she fights to outmaneuver her growing list of enemies and win a war that becomes more complicated by the day, Sara Fairchild knows that no matter what, the empire will never be the same.


Blades Of Sorcery starts right where Blades Of Illusion ends. We pretty much end when a battle starts and so we pick up right where the battle was happening. I have to say this was the longest battle scene I’ve ever read. We make it to Chapter 5 and we’re still in the battle. Partly 50% of the book is one long battle. The only exciting thing that happens is we finally get to see what a Battle Mage can do.

Not much of anything happens in Blades Of Sorcery. Their’s no character growth or development. We still don’t learn why the war is happening. No tide pits or pieces to tell us anything. Her friend, Ezekiel, is missing for most of the book and so we don’t get to see them interact like they did in the previous titles. We do see that those around Sara see her as a leader, but she’s uncomfortable with this and not ready for that role.

The only time we do get something of interests is the very last chapter at the end where Sara finally meets the man her father trusted above all others. The one they have been looking for, but then the book ends with a big reveal on her quest and we have to wait for the next title to find out more.

Blades Of Sorcery was long and tedious.

  1. The covers for these books are fantastic. I am sorry that this one had such a long battle and omg I might have DNF it because of it.


    • I do agree with you on the covers. They are fantastic. As for the book, I almost did DNF, but I kept going. Something had me still reading even though most of the book is a big battle scene. Thank’s for visiting, Mary.

  2. Half the book was a battle? Oys! I’d be skimming. LOL

    • I can’t skim, so I read it all. It feel the need to read every word and skimming just don’t work for me. ^_^ Thank’s for visiting.
