A Crucible of Souls (Book One of the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence)

( 11 )

Overview

For a debut novel this is more than a little impressive. Characters are vividly drawn, multi-layered, and in one or two cases, compelling. Hogan joins with the new wave of fantasy authors in his use of morally ambivalent characters, distinct and tight points of view, believable world building, an intelligible magic system, and some edgy, gritty content. - D.P. Prior, Author of the Nameless Dwarf

Overview

For a debut novel this is more than a little impressive. Characters are vividly drawn, multi-layered, and in one or two cases, compelling. Hogan joins with the new wave of fantasy authors in his use of morally ambivalent characters, distinct and tight points of view, believable world building, an intelligible magic system, and some edgy, gritty content. - D.P. Prior, Author of the Nameless Dwarf

When Caldan's parents are brutally slain, he is raised by monks and taught the arcane mysteries of sorcery.

Vowing to discover for himself who his parents really were, and what led to their violent end, he is thrust into the unfamiliar chaos of city life. With nothing to his name but a pair of mysterious heirlooms and a handful of coins, he must prove his talent to earn an apprenticeship with a guild of sorcerers.

But he soon learns the world outside the monastery is a darker place than he ever imagined, and his treasured sorcery has disturbing depths.

As a shadowed evil manipulates the unwary and forbidden powers are unleashed, Caldan is plunged into an age-old conflict that brings the world to the edge of destruction...

    Excellent plot with characters that are well defined. Could not put it down!

    definitely worth a look

    Well defined characters, good plot line, a little slow at first (not unexpected for the first in a series). The reluctant hero thing gets a little old after awhile- but I liked it enough that I bought the second in the series.

    Great read

    The story felt nice and fresh. The characters were a nice change and had regular emotions, a good thing

    Can not put down

    For what is, as far as I can tell, a first book, this is absolutely amazing. From exquisite character building to fantastic world building, this book offers a story both well-told and immersive. Smooth story telling and a sympathetic character pull you in and make you wish the rest of the story were already written. If he keeps writing like this I may find I have yet another new favorite author!
