Format: Paperback
In the novella, The Sorcerer's Mask, self-made art entrepreneur, Jasson Vaughn has been nursing a broken heart after his fiancée, Angela Dorsey, dumped him to concentrate on her career. Jasson throws himself into his work, and puts on a mask that all is well with him. After several months of not socializing, his closest friend and business partner, Ramon Chapelle, orders his presence at his upcoming party. When the very beautiful Marissa Saunders strolls into the party, enchanting all of the men, she only has eyes for Jasson. And thus begins their intense passionate affair. As it turns out Jasson is not the only one who knows how to wear a mask, as Marissa has been leading a double life, and Jasson will soon need to make life altering decisions to save his new love. But when all of the masks are thrown off, will the real sorcerer raise their hand?

I enjoyed this entertaining tale of intrigue which focuses on the issues of innocence and justice. There was a nice blend of dialogue and narrative which provides the necessary background and character development to allow me to anticipate the hazardous adventure that will lead to the characters fighting for their lives. The tone of the story is introspective, and had me contemplating how easy business and government interests can have hidden agendas under the guise of cooperation. While the heart of the story takes place in a compressed timeframe, I did find the pace a little slow at the beginning of the book.

I recommend this book to readers who enjoy mystery adventures that can be read in one session. By the end of the book, I knew the characters, and as with a good TV drama, I am looking forward to the next episode, and the adventures of the characters.

Format: Paperback
Jasson Vaughn is a successful art dealer who has just been unceremoniously dumped by his fiancée Angela. Trying to get over his heartbreak, Jasson decides to just pour himself into his work. His best friend, Ramon, has other ideas when he introduces Jasson to a beautiful woman named Marisa. Just when Jasson and Marisa develop their relationship, Marisa is suddenly caught in a dangerous situation. Now Jasson and Ramon are doing everything in their power to save her. But everything is not quite what it seems.

Drug enforcement agents, drug lords, high art, and diabolical plans are what Jvictor Black brought us with The Sorcerer's Mask. This book was an interesting tale about what happens to a man who takes that leap of faith in order to fall in love. Jasson's relationship dilemmas serve as a backdrop to the real main plot of the story, which is Marisa's grave situation. The beginning of the book is a little odd because you really don't have a clue as to what kind of person the ex-fiancée, Angela, really is. Angela is a character that could have been deleted out completely because she doesn't serve any purpose other than starting out the book. The story really picks up with a lot of television drama type action towards the middle of the book, but before you know it, it's all over. The book just needed to be just a little bit longer. The Sorcerer's Mask is still an enjoyable read for those who like untypical characters, intrigue and suspenseful twists.
