Review of "The Sorceress' Prophecy" by Carson Watson

Anyone who loves Harry Potter is going to find great reading in The Sorceress' Prophecy. The land conceived by author Carson Watson is filled with nightmarish creatures that stalk the night and a coven of students trying to learn enough magic to fend off the advances of Satin, the worst of the lot.

At the forefront is Kaia, who's mother has disappeared, and her friend Vittorio, who work with those at the Fraternity to try and understand their mutual enemy, the Amphisbaena, a kind of super vampire.

The land of Londou is also inhabited by werewolves, who as a pack, also want to gain power over the strewn wasteland that is their home. Only Kaia and her friends hold the key to stopping the carnage.

The author does a good job of setting up the fight, giving us plenty of characters to watch develop or fold away in the coming pages and keeping up enough interest to make those pages magically dissolve as we read through chapter after chapter.

There is little breakdown in theme or plot, as this is good (or so it would seem) against evil, or at least favorite characters against less favorable foes. If you love the dark powers, battles, sorcery and things that go bump in the night, great, you'll love this book. And, it's a good size too, at over 370 pages.

It's available on Kindle Unlimited for Free - or if you haven't joined, it's $2.99 for the Ebook. Enjoy!

Thanks for reading - Al W Moe

  1. Great review! I read this some time ago and it renewed my confidence in new writers in the Paranormal genre. The writer has a strong grasp of the English Language, penning poetic lines after poetic lines. In this sense he reminds me of Clive Barker. I have one issue with the review though, Satin is not an enemy, yes he might be evil and his intentions hidden,but he does no harm to the protagonist. Great review...and a MUST READ!
