Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The final installment in Jackson's medieval trilogy (after Impostress and Temptress) finds a witch and a warrior drawn together for the battle of their lives. In 13th-century northern Wales, a man named Gavyn is on the run from his own father after killing, in self-defense, the ruthless sheriff of Agendor. Meanwhile, a sorceress named Bryanna is leaving her home in the south of Wales, traveling north at the beckoning of a powerful vision and hoping to gather the four jewels that haunt her dreams. When Gavyn and Bryanna meet by chance, their banter is touched by humor and sexual longing, and it isn't long before an ethereal episode of lovemaking binds them together and their dangerous journeys become one. Trying to stay a step ahead of Gavyn's father and the man who murdered Bryanna's mother, their quest for the jewels makes a tense, fast-paced adventure complete with paranormal beings and mystical powers. This fine finale combines romance, suspense and mysticism to make a top-notch read. (Sept.)

Set in the early thirteenth century of North Wales. Bryanna of Penbrooke has always stood out from the rest. It is something she has always hated. No one ever believed Bryanna when she was little and mentioned the people and animals around that no one else could see. She has always been plagued by visions and voices. She has always been a sorceress, though she has been careful to keep it quiet. Now she is compelled by destiny to fulfill an age-old prophecy and to save an innocent life. So she begins traveling, alone, toward Tarth, in hopes of receiving some answers. At the same time she searches for four jewels for an enchanted dagger. Bryanna never expected to meet a stranger deep in the woods.

Hallyd killed a witch sixteen years ago, but not before the beautiful vixen cursed him. Hallyd must now keep to the darkness, never to enjoy the slightest bit of sunlight. He has waited so long for the witch's daughter, Bryanna, to come. She is the one chosen by the Fates. He will make her lift the curse and then enjoy the other sinister plans he has devised for her.

Gavyn of Agendor is hunted by his biological father, Lord Agendor, and his hired killers. Horribly wounded during his flight, Gavyn stumbles upon Bryanna's campfire. He is shocked to realize that Bryanna is the woman from his dreams; dreams he has had for years. If she will let him, Gavyn will protect Bryanna while teaching her amazing things. But Gavyn has no idea that Bryanna is also being hunted. Nor does he believe that one so lovely could possibly be a sorceress.

***** This story hooked me immediately and never let go. As I finished one suspenseful section, I was shocked to realize that my body had actually gone totally still and I had been holding my breath along with Bryanna! Author Lisa Jackson has written a breathtaking tale that will leave you believing in magic and true love. Astounding! *****

A really lovely romantic book with interesting characters. It started with a good plot, but I never felt the 'climax' of the story. Was it when she found the first gem or when the enemy was defeated?

I felt that it has great potential with a great plot in the beginning, but it went downhill after the first gem. The villain seemed so powerful and complex, but turned out to be nothing. The 'witch' or demon was more interesting and she wasn't really the main focus even they tried to make her so. The main character is pretty good, but I never really understood everything about her. I didn't feel attached to her. Same with Gavyn and almost all the other characters. It just didn't have any oomph.

Alright book, but don't expect for it to captivate you.

Reviewed by Carrie Spellman

Bryanna learned early on not to talk about the people she could see-peole that were somehow invisible to everyone else. That didn't remotely prepare her for conversations with the dead. Well, not all of the dead, mainly just Isa. Isa, the nursemaid, who had cared for her, essentially raised her, secretly taught her the ways of the old ones, and died in her arms. Dead, but obviously not gone. She spoke to Bryanna almost immediately after her death, gave her a mission that makes no sense, led her to a map she can't read, and sent her on a perilous journey, alone.

In this romance fantasy, while Bryanna runs blindly toward the unknown, Gavyn runs blindly away from his past-from his various crimes and the father who never wanted him. They are bound to encounter each other. Fated to be a part of each other's quest. Drawn together, but mistrustful of themselves and each other.

They are being stalked by three separate groups and the gathering darkness of evil. Unaware of the specific threat and haunted by urgency, Bryanna and Gavyn travel throughout ancient Wales. Searching for answers, attempting to fulfill an unexplained destiny, not knowing whom to trust, and trying to keep their own thoughts from drifting constantly toward each other.

Straddling the line between romance and fantasy, Lisa Jackson weaves a marvelous tale. You worry for these characters, feel their frustration, share their rising sense of urgency and danger, grow closer to them as they grow closer to each other.

Armchair Interviews says: The final book in a trilogy, Sorceress easily stands alone.

This book has the feeling of a good, sleazy, Dynasty-Dallas-type soap opera feel...but it's set about 700+ years ago and has a sorceress as the protagonist that sees invisible beings, but hey! It's fiction!

Kambria is a sorceress who is killed by an evil priest named Hallyd who wants the dagger so he can have ultimate power. Power to do what, I have no clue. It could be power to always have matching socks, power to fly through the air, power to make all the elves come out to play, or de-throne a King. But whatever it is, it's supposed ot be powerful. As she is dying, she curses him so that he can only live in darkness. So, he basically becomes a hermit in his castle.

Kambria apparently is a little on the hoochie side because she sleeps with a nobleman. Ironically, he knocks Kambria up the same time he knocks up his own wife. The nobleman's wife has a difficult delivery and her child dies. Kambria, fearing for the life of her own child, with her nobleman's help, they swap kids.

So, the kid that lives ends up living with her father and adoptiive mother, but no one knows she's not their full-blooded child except the nursemaid and her dad. Bryanna grows up to be a hot chick who has visions, has the hots for her brother-in-law, and has her dead nursemaid talking to her.

Because of the visions and talking to dead people, she goes and runs off...right into a boy she followed around in her childhood who happens to be the illegitimate son of some other nobleman who is fleeing his father who is trying to kill him.

So, the two go off together, guided by her dead nursemaid and followed by a wolf who happens to be her real dead biological mother so she can fulfill a prophecy of re-assembling a dagger.
