Customer Review

on 24 October 2006
In a moment of desperation before a long plane journey I bought Sorcery Rising and then for a variety of reasons, never opened it. On returning home I did a quick scan of the Amazon reviews and was disappointed to read so many negative reviews.

On my next trip I took it with me. Were the other reviewers reading the same book?

Fisher's novel is a not an immediate page turner; this isn't fast food but a gourmet meal. The characters are trickled into the first hundred pages; diverse and absorbing they each add another thread to a tapestry which is delightful because it takes a while to comprehend the scene.

Though one senses the growth a protagonist who could grow along the lines of a Paksenarrion (Elizabeth Moon), part of the enjoyment is the strength of all the parts rather than just the engaging, tom-boy heroine Katla.

Sorcery Rising is an excellent novel both well written and entertaining. Don't be put off by some less positive reviews, read this book. Jude Fisher could become a major name in the genre if this quality continues.
