Editorial Reviews

Review

"Should appeal to young readers in search of adventure, a fantasy world, and a struggle between Good and Evil." (CM Magazine 2012-10-17)

"Through Eliza's quest, Egan sends a powerful message to young girls...Definitely a breath of fresh air! I would recommend this to middle grade fantasy readers." (Southwest Ohio and Neighboring Libraries (SWON) 2013-11-12)

Format: Kindle Edition
Loved this from start to finish + would definitely recommend it for boys and girls who love Harry Potter/Hunger Games/Golden Compass -- kids who want the books they read to be imaginative and fun.

The main character, Eliza, is the last of a long line of powerful sorceresses whose job it is to protect the world of Di Shang. But Eliza has never met her mother, and even though she's being trained by powerful magical beings called Mancers, her magic flat-out doesn't work -- so when trouble starts, she has to rely on her own wits, her friends, and her courage.

This book has great characters -- the main character is a strong, smart girl who grew up dark-skinned in a light-skinned village, and she has to struggle for everything she gets. By the end of the book, you're really rooting for her. The magic of the book is also really creative and fun -- shapeshifters, foot dragons, illusory cities, fairy-blood amulets -- it gives you the feeling of sinking into another world.

This is the first book in a three-book series. I'll definitely be sending these out to my nieces and nephews for many Christmases to come.

I thought I would have a problem with this book, since I outgrew Sorceresses a long time ago. Guess what, I couldn't put it down Catherine Egan has a story telling quality, which kept me glued page after page and I was sorry when ended. Highly recommended to teenagers and grandparents and anybody in between. Wonderful read.
Looking forward to the next sequel and I am very happy that it comes in Kindle format.

Catherine weaves a wonderful and engrossing tale full of intriguing characters that are both familiar and strange. I read this book in a single sitting because I simply did not want to leave the story and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment! A great read for teens, tweens and adults alike.

Format: Paperback
Catherine Egan knows her stuff. Shade and Sorceress reinterprets the familiar elements that make fantasy a favorite genre and weaves them into a breathtaking adventure that sustains its dramatic tension to the final pages. S and S is emotionally complex and still suitable for school aged children. I will be recommending it to every parent and student who asks for holiday suggestions. I will also be pre-ordering the sequel at the earliest opportunity!
