From the Back Cover
A novice sorcerer may hold the key to saving his world—or be the instrument of its destruction—in this second book in the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence, a mesmerizing saga of high fantasy that combines magic, malevolence, and mystery
Anasoma, jewel of the Mahruse Empire, has fallen. As the orphan Caldan and his companions flee the city, leaving behind their hopes for a new beginning, horrors from the time of the Shattering begin to close in.
With his friend Miranda’s mind broken by forbidden sorcery, Caldan does the unthinkable to save her: he breaks the most sacrosanct laws of the Protectors. But when the emperor’s warlocks arrive to question him, Caldan realizes that his burgeoning powers may be more of a curse than a blessing, and the enemies assailing the empire may be rivaled by more sinister forces within.
And soon, the blood of innocents may be on Caldan’s own hands.
About the Author
When he was eleven, Mitchell Hogan was given The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy to read, and a love of fantasy novels was born. He spent the next ten years reading, rolling dice, and playing computer games, with some school and university thrown in. Along the way he accumulated numerous bookcases’ worth of fantasy and sci-fi novels, and he doesn’t look to stop anytime soon. For a decade he put off his dream of writing, then he quit his job and wrote A Crucible of Souls, Book One in the Sorcery Ascendant Sequence. He now writes full-time and is eternally grateful to the readers who took a chance on an unknown self-published author. He lives in Sydney, Australia, with his wife, Angela, and daughter, Isabelle.

- Once of the things I liked about the first book was the details and descriptions of the sorcery. That has been dropped in this one unfortunately. Here is an example: the main character sets out to make a better automaton. He creates it using more "complex" parts, writes on it with more "complex" runes, and activates it with more "complex" magic. It is literally explained that way. Show me why it is complex, don't tell me.
- This one has a few obvious errors. Example: Aidan takes a leg wound that causes him to collapse in battle. In his next scene he walks to his destination without mention of a leg wound.
- This one has poor pacing. I felt the first 50% was just groups travelling everywhere. Then the last 10% trys to do waaayy to much.
This review is honest and I am a confirmed purchaser for my kindle here on amazon.
the writer was obviously told by his publisher the same thing they all hear now days "make this a 3 part or a 5 part story! you can do it!" so we all suffered..
the book was filled with large character development of people we care nothing about, slower then slow plot development and feet dragging on every page.
i hope the 3rd book is wonderful, like the first book to make up for this mess
