Présentation de l'éditeur

From a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author comes a captivating tale of intrigue, love, and danger in a world where sorcery is entwined with science . . .

Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her.

She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of. She will do anything to experience the world . . . even leave the man she is beginning to fall for.

Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancée, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . .

Very good book. It gives a good and questionning insight of what might have been European societies in the Middle Ages (in term of liberties). The woman character is really captivating by her enthusiasm and warmth. I strongly recomand this reading. It is a good entertaining book. It might change some aspects of your attitude. Nonetheless you might not be really startling by the way the story unfolds. But I find the predictability cheerful.

No sorcery to dislike this book. There are some good fantasy ideas but for the rest it remains quite predictable. You won 't have the ending also, have to continue reading the series.

HASH(0x8e1388dc) étoiles sur 5 Lots of Potential 21 janvier 2014
Par CherylAu - Publié sur
Format: Broché
In Kuldon, those with magical powers rule. Blaise, one of the most skilled sorcerers in the land, lives in self-imposed isolation. Ignoring the Sorcerers Council's injunction forbidding its creation, Blaise has finally succeeded in manifesting an object which will allow peasants to use magic. But it's not in the form he expected. Lying on the floor of his study is Gala, the naked embodiment of female physical perfection. Suppressing his curiosity about her abilities, Blaise yields to Gala's desire to "live as a normal person". Leaving her in the care of his friends Ester and Maya, he requests that they ensure Gala does not draw attention to herself. Gala's physical beauty draws plenty of admiring male and envious female attention, but it is what happens when she is upset that makes it impossible for Ester and Maya to keep their promise to Blaise.
While the unpredictable manifestation of Gala's powers and their unintended consequences is the central theme of this volume, there are several subplots giving context and depth to the story. Blaise's ex-fiancée, Augusta, abhorrent of his creation, is torn between the Council's rules and protecting Blaise. Augusta's new lover, Barson, has ambitions that he needs Augusta's influence to achieve. Ganir, leader of the Sorcerer's Council and Blaise's former mentor, manipulates Augusta and wants to use Blaise and Gala to further his own agenda. With chapter's being named for and written from the point of view of particular characters, the reader is privy to their private motivations while simultaneously observing how their webs of deceit unwittingly entangle creating a catalyst for the unexpected.
The world of Kuldon, like many books in the fantasy genre, is a medieval feudal society. The peasant culture and circumstances are primarily used to highlight the disparate wealth and power of the ruling class of sorcerers. The battle scenes, in particular, are sufficiently graphic to feel credible without overdoing the realism.
In this volume, we meet the main players and discover portions of their individual and mutual histories. At this stage, no character's personality traits or voice is clear enough to negate the need for named chapter headings. Perhaps future volumes will have greater scope more in depth of character development. Unexpectedly, the magic is a character in its own right. The ingenious way the sorcerers access their powers sets this story apart. Likewise, Gala's abilities and her use of magic is novel.
As the first of a series, this book felt like it was simply laying a complex foundation for the real story to come. I listened to the audiobook and found the melodramatic style of Emily Durante's narration detracted significantly from the authors' storytelling. I would have enjoyed it much more had I read the book. This epic has lots of potential yet to be realised. If you enjoy tales of magical powers set against a background of political intrigue and subterfuge, you will probably like this series.

HASH(0x8e57c570) étoiles sur 5 Vapid, boring characters and uninteresting plot... 13 mars 2014
Par Daniel B. Stover - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I don't read much fantasy anymore, but I decided to pick something up to read during a vacation. I noticed this book on a few "best X fantasy novels" types of lists. Is this what people call good fantasy now? What the heck is going on with all of these 5-star ratings?

The characters are profoundly uninteresting; the protagonist and his wish fulfillment magical creature being the most obvious offenders. I would not be able to name one character trait the protagonist is supposed to have to save my life. We are supposed to believe that his harem, the village women and the magical girl, see him as this wonderful man, but it is absolutely impossible to see any endearing traits about him even when in his harem's POV.

The magical girl's personality consists of two things: (1) being vacantly happy about everything going on until she finds she needs to smite something and then has the power to do so (2) wanting to bang the completely bland and uninspiring male lead.

Then, there are the village women who are supposedly healers and mid-wives who don't seem to have any real dialogue except for bickering with each other.

The plot arc was... Well... Lacking in arc... The author actually creates "suspense" several times via leaving out information that is common knowledge to the characters themselves. In other words, the story is not woven so that you are hungry for more or curious about what happens next, but knowledge that the main characters have is simply left out so that the reader does not know what is going on. I think it was on purpose to create some counterfeit version of suspense.

I didn't know it was possible to read something worse than the first few books of the Sword of Truth series, but this one takes the cake. Thank god I only spent 4 bucks on the kindle version.

HASH(0x8e5d6f9c) étoiles sur 5 Not Much to Be Said 1 mars 2014
Par Robin Mahan - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The high reviews on Amazon led me to purchase The Sorcery Code. Other editorial commentators promised a novel with strong world-building characteristics, a dynamic plot, and a story that defies clichés. Imagine then to my intense surprise to find a novel that embodied none of those things.
In short, this book is riddled with banality. Once cannot help but think that its author read the Twilight series one too many times and then decided to forge her own market-driven piece of drivel.
Our heroine, Gala, is absolutely the most beautiful thing in the world. From her creation she's charged with an intense (although not explicitly referenced) libido. Oh, and did I mention that she's just so heart-breakingly innocent--she heals lions, it's cute. Will she hook up with Blaise (who is also incredibly handsome)? Will she discover how to use her god-like, hidden powers and use them to help the lives of poor poor peasant families? Who could care?
Save your money, buy something else.

HASH(0x8e139738) étoiles sur 5 A terrible, terrible book. 18 mai 2014

If you have ever done any programming, you will recognize the book's premise for magic as a clumsy and painful metaphor for coding. The prose is stilted and awkward; the characters are not in the least believable and indulge in ridiculous dialog.

The book reads like it was written by a 15-year-old boy who wishes he was attractive and that a pretty girl would drop out of the sky and be instantly smitten with him.

I really can't say enough bad things about this book. If you are at all picky about your reading, steer clear of this one.

HASH(0x8e13975c) étoiles sur 5 Had Potential, Never Developed 23 février 2016
Par Robyn E - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As an avid fantasy reader I've really enjoyed the works of Brent Weeks, Robert Jordan, Brandon Sanderson, and Steven Erickson. When it came up as an option on Tomoson, I jumped on the chance to receive this ebook in exchange for my honest review!

I found The Sorcery Code to be disappointing.

It begins with a lot of potential to create a really unique numerical magic system (not unlike Brandon Sanderson's The Rithmatist). Unfortunately, this potential remains unfulfilled. The effects generated by magic are uninteresting, and the explanation of the the underlying magic is equally boring if present at all.

The characters also have potential as it's clear there is an intertwined backstory and the themes in the book have social and political significance. However, the actual plot lacks the depth necessary to realize this and the characters come off as very one dimensional and easy to predict.

The writing is simple and straight forward- often too much so. Motives are plain, descriptions are direct, and opportunities to really create a detailed/interesting picture of what this world is like are consistently ignored by the author.

I feel as if the reviewers who gave this book 5 stars are either people who don't read a lot of good fantasy or they didn't actually read the book.
