Book Review: Sorcery of Thorns
Margaret Rogerson is one of my favorite authors. After falling in love with an Enchantment of Ravens, I had high hopes for this book and it did not disappoint. Rogerson has a gift for crafting incredible characters that you can’t help but fall in love with.
Such was the case for me with Sorcery of Thorns. Elisabeth is a courageous girl with an intense love for libraries in which she works. She has a strong inclination to do the right thing, even if that path sometimes takes her outside of what she’s be taught is right.
Nathaniel is a force. He’s funny, with a bright personality and a dark past. You can’t help but laugh at his antics and be enthralled by his power.
And then there’s Silas. Silas is my favorite. He’s complex in his nature versus his emotions. He’s powerful, beautiful...he draws you in completely.
Add these characters into the intriguing world of magical grimoires, demons, and sorcery, couple with Rogerson’s lush descriptions and gorgeous writing, you have a masterpiece.
Strangely enough, I was reminded a lot of Kurshitsuji (Black Butler), so if you love that, I think you'll adore this book!
My only complaint is that it’s a standalone. I could read a dozen books about this world and these characters and never lose interest.
