Book Description

Product description for: The Circle of Sorcerers Kindle edition, 81,000 words.

When Laedron Telpist's sorcery training is interrupted by a knock on the door, what once seemed a proper profession must now be hidden. In a world where priests and mages vie for the limitless power of the elements and a new Grand Vicar has sworn death to all sorcerers, Laedron is tossed into a nightmare which would see his destruction at every turn.

From the home shores in western Sorbia, through the Cael'Brilland heartlands, and even across the seas to the great city of Azura, Laedron finds himself embracing old friends, consorting with unlikely allies, and confronting potent enemies. As he struggles to train himself in spellcraft, Laedron must face that he lives in a time when the utterance of a simple spell could be the signature on his death warrant.

The Consuls of the Vicariate, Book #2 of the Mages of Bloodmyr Series, is now available.The Immortals of Myrdwyer, Book #3 of the Mages of Bloodmyr Series, is now available.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Circle of Sorcerers 24 April 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This is a pretty good albeit standard fantasy tale. There are some twists and turns in it which keep it interesting. This was not a book that dragged me into it though, but it was very easy to read. There are some anomalies in it, the main male is very talented with magic although he appears to have no training apart from the "normal". People are constantly surprised at how good he is, which leads you to believe that he has talent, but this is something not explained or explored. Characters come and go in this book so don't get too attached.

    On the whole, pleasant and enjoyable. I would read the second book but I won't be rushing to get it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Packed full of magic! 26 Aug. 2014
    By Jerico
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    The Circle of Sorcerers is action packed and apart from a slow start that builds upon the background of the world and protagonist, it is full of tension and there is rarely a lull in the pace.

    I have always loved to read about mages and systems of magic and this was one of the reasons that I picked this book. I really liked the way in which Brian shows the development and progression in Laedron Telpist's skills and the story of his family, together with his friends who accompany him on his tasks. I don't want to say too much more as there is a lot to give away but the basic premise for this story is the uprising of the church against the collective magic users. Laedron finds himself very quickly thrust into the midst of this struggle and has a lot of growing up to do in a short space of time. His immaturity does show through on occasions which helps with the realism of it all and the author has not taken the easy option of promoting the childlike hero into a typical steadfast character free of the obvious traits that would still be present in a small town lad not used to city life or the greater scheme of things.

    As already mentioned after the opening few chapters things speed up nicely and the tale moves along at a captivating pace. There were also a few big surprises thrown in early on that you wouldn't necessarily expect so soon but then that's probably what helps keep the story so gripping at times. I really liked the idea of mages working together in a battle group with knights and how they are trained to complement one another.

    I'm expecting a lot from book two and have no doubt that Brian will deliver.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Timer filler book 25 Aug. 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I must say, the reviews giving this 5 stars are either by those easily pleased or perhaps friends and family. The story is not bad but the plot and the characters significantly lack dimension. I've given it 3 stars purely because I assume the book is mainly aimed at young adults and this is perhaps the author first published book.

    Key Issues I found in the book:
    Confused on how the circle of mages which is a centuries old institution with hundreds of mages can be taken out so easily. Even with the element of surprise you would think enough would have survived and being able to fight back.

    Further more, the characters while young, just blurts out secret missions to everyone who gives them a difficult time or bats their eyelashes? Really?

    The use of magic in enemy territory so openly should not really be a surprise people rat you out?

    Also, is it just me or does a couple weeks of training should not result in trained knights who are suppose to be a cut off the rest. The main character as well just seems to develop from some confused boy into a strong knowledgeable character with anger management issues that seem to go beyond the justifications supplied. Just so much of it felt rushed or completely missing in the book

    There are a couple more issues with the book (eg. spelling mistakes, jumps from sea to shore without mentioning the ship landed, plot holes) but overall the characters did not appeal to me, the main character is one moment naive little boy, next moment blood thirsty bully and you just feel you don't know any of the characters better at the end of the book than when you started.

    I am not sure I will follow up on this series, but will keep it on my wish list in case I am in need of a time filler.

    3.0 out of 5 stars If only this had been constructed better 9 Jan. 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I'll be positive to start. This is a fairly well written, descriptive book. The plot is fairly generic but none the less quite absorbing. The protagonist is fairly likeable.

    This reads like a first book. There isn't enough character development and the speech is fairly stilted in places. Much of the plot is rushed, in particular the time spent with our hero learning skills from his new mistress. Apparently he is able to learn everything from the basics upwards in a couple of days. Later he is hanging around in barracks for quite a while, yet is quite surprised when he meets up with 3 others from his village who have also spent a lot of time in the same barracks.

    I guess Lae (the hero) is actually a superhero as he can do stuff that no-one else can do and seemingly without instruction or practice. This makes it hard to empathise with him. Personally I would have liked the author to consider Lae's internal monologue a bit and spend a whole lot more time building up the character. Also I really don't know what was happening at the start with his mother and sister, either this is meant as a set up for future books or it was trying to show Lae's home life and if it is the latter it really doesn't work.

    To summarise this is a curate's egg. The author could do with a few good alpha readers and with a rewrite this could be a much better book.
