The Sorcery Code (The Sorcery Code: Volume 1) (English Edition) Format Kindle
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 . . .

This book was a kindle freebie so of course I had to give it a try – I have to confess I have now purchased the Volume 2.
I didn’t think I’d end up giving 4 stars to this book – I didn’t want to enjoy it as much as I did, it felt like a guilty pleasure! A book with such creative world building and concepts could be so MUCH more (My hopes are in the sequel – to explore all which has been missed ).
The beginning was what hooked me! Before I knew it, I was reading incessantly, page after page. Even amongst the cliches, I think the element ‘suspense’ was worked to the perfect degree to make you feel curious about what could happen next.
On the other hand, I was terribly disappointed with the development of the plot in the last chapters and specially the ending.
My favourite character was the antagonist (I am pretty sure this was not the authors’ intention!). Augusta, to me, appeared to be pretty rational in her fears and even if part of her was motivated by jealousy, well, this is a human emotion too! She seemed to be the most genuine and real character of them all. Her motives were pretty clear too, unlike the others. And she remains loyal to her beliefs even if those are controversial.
My least favourite character was Blaise (oops this was supposed to be the main character!). I admire his values and how far he is willing to go to benefit the peasants but at some point, he does seem to lose track of his objectives. He needs to set his priorities urgently: Saving his people, saving Gala, entering the Spell Realm? Is he serious about making a change in the world and seek a solution for the unfair differences of his society OR is he just a mad scientist obsessed with his creation?
There are some aspects about Gala that make her interesting (not necessarily likeable!) – most of the time she is nothing more than a selfish and careless young girl. – not suitable to whatever romance she’s thrown into.
The world building, the magical concepts, how easy it is to get into the magical world created by the authors unlike many fantasy books.
What’s missing for me
Less cliches, More descriptions, More character depth & development.
This is a very intricate, well developed and a somewhat fun read.
We meet Blaze who is a highly skilled Sorcerer and he is trying to bring magic to everyone in the world not just the select group. In this land there are three classes of people, the Sorcerers at the very top, the soldiers who guard the sorcerers, and then there is the common folk. Blaze believes that magic should be available to everyone so he sets about to make this happen. What he didn't expect was to create a "woman"! He names her Gala after his mother and there is no denying that there is going to be some romance between them.
I loved how the story intermingles with the other characters, Gala was brilliant and I just loved her view on the world, Augusta who is Blaze ex fiancée was just written in perfect the way to annoy you but still love her character in a way.
The story got me hooked even though I wasnt really sure what to expect, and I loved the magical world that Zales has created and for all I am not one to read much of this genre it was definitely a brilliant read and I cant wait to read volume 2!
I enjoyed the book so much that i immediately bought and read the second book. Just waiting on the third to be released.
It is not the fantasy fiction that I usually read but if you like an easy going pleasant reading experience then this is a good choice.
