Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Jones’ storytelling takes a darker turn in this third book of the Faerie Path series. After the people of Faerie are enslaved, Tania, Edric, and two of Tania’s sisters go in search of the kidnapped king, while those left behind rally the people for war. Fans of Tania's romance with Edric will wish it played a bigger role in the rather convenient plot. However, with plenty of harrowing moments, strong women, and a memorable final battle, the series ends on a strong note. Grades 6-9. --Krista Hutley

About the Author

Frewin Jones has always believed in the existence of "other worlds" that we could just step in and out of if we only knew the way. In the Mortal World, Frewin lives in southeast London with a mystical cat called Siouxsie Sioux.

A Kid's Review on February 10, 2008
Format: Hardcover
This would be the more grim of the Faerie Path series. Like the 1st was the more love story, and the 2nd was the more idk. I wouldn't recomend this book to tweens under the age of 12(possbily 11)because this book is violent, and umm... there's not many 'happy' moments. But it is very good and hard to put down.
Cordelia, Edric, Sancha, Titana, Tiana, and Zara escape safely from the Gray Nights of Lyonesse, in London, only to find what used to be lush gardens are now dried up and dead, King Oberon is imprisoned in an Amber Prison and their home is pretty much destroyed.
Sancha, Tania, Zara and Edric head into the palace looking for King Oberon, while Titana and Cordelia stay hidden in the woods. While Sneaking around Tania and Eden find out that the Sorcer King is to burn Sancha's precious library. Sancha, while the library is burning around her, tries to grab the soul books. She is unsucessful but Tania is able to grab a few pages of her father's soul book, which tells them he at the desolate island of Ynis Maw.
Zara, Cordelia, Tania and Edric head toward Ynis Maw, but an unfourtunate event happens, leading them to Caer Kymry, where Hopie is.
Cordelia, Tania and Edric set free Oberon on Ynis Maw. On the way the make new friends. There is a big battle, near the palace, and tradgedy happens. Like all the books I've read this one has a happy ending.
Unlike the other books in the preivous books, this one does not tell of another sequel, but there could still be one. I hope there is another book. (I hope I haven't told too much.)
This book also makes me believe that the Faerie Path series would be an excellent movie.

wow, this fell flat. It's total fluff, but compared to the first two it's not even a satisfactory enough fluff read for me. I skimmed the last 100 pages just to know how the ending went. It's a shame. The first book was ok, the second book was real interesting... this one? Not so much. I didn't even care about the relationship between Edric and Tania, and that's sad... when the fluffy romantic plotline fails to compel the reader what does that say? Atrocious ending makes for a mediocre read.

A Kid's Review on February 4, 2008
Format: Hardcover
The Faerie books are the best books I have ever read.I think adults would like them too. But kids will LOVE them because it is filled with a world that they can dream of at night.It is a place where they can escape to after a hard day at school.If you have not read these books then you have missed out on a piece of life!

This book is excellent. Not only is this book good for the are group described, but it is also good for adults too. I didn't want to stop reading it. After finishing the book, I wanted to read the next book in the series right away.

Tania, who walks between both the faerie world and the mortal world, is a hero that any teenager can relate to. She is searching for love and discovers herself and her strength during the quest. You really need to read the first two books to be able to get into this one. It does move much more quickly than the others, however.
It is a fast read, with the story pulling you into it as the group of intrepid travelers encounter roadblock after roadblock but manage to escape or triumph every challenge.
I really liked this book. It shows how a girl can be strong, determined, love her family, and still have an amazing time. (The cool thing is that this girl has two families, a mortal one and a faerie one.)

Once again, Frewin Jones takes you on a mystical, suspenseful ride into the land of Faerie in her third book of THE FAERIE PATH series.

Returning to Faerie with her sisters and long-lost mother, Tania is shocked to find that the Sorcerer King has caused her beloved home to become a rotting and dead mess. The princesses realize that the only way they can beat him is to free their father, Oberon, from the Amber Prison.

And so they embark on their perilous journey, where they will find danger, friendship, adventure, hope, and love.

A stunning third book that delivers a thrilling adventure that all will fall in love with, THE SORCERER KING is slightly more serious than its predecessors, but holds all of the same charm and spirit.

The Sorcerer King is the third in the series; which, as I have not read the other two, makes it a very interesting book. I have before started a series with a book other than the first, just to see if it works as a stand-alone, a challenge to the author, if you will. The Sorcerer King didn't do so well.

The story began like a chapter, not a book. I can only imagine the frustration of people who read the second Faerie Path book. If the ending of the second flowed smoothly with the beginning of the third, it must have been some cliffhanger. It frustrated me, and made the whole book read like a TV episode.

The plot itself was good, if a bit too forced. I found myself getting confused and things that were important flashed before my eyes in a second. Causing me to go back and try and figure out what exactly happened. I was never exactly sure who was where and what was happening. And every single thing, even normal things, had a made-up name. The author was trying to hard to make a typical story original.

Also, a good book in a series should tell you what happened before, but leave you wanting more detail, therefore getting you to read the other books. The Sorcerer King did the opposite. It gave me just little snippets of things, not enough to let me know what they're talking about unless I have read the other books. This did not make me happy. And left me lost and behind as the story unfolded.

Perhaps I was just too old for this book. I have always been of the mind that books are for all ages, but sometimes books just aren't meant for older readers. Someone attempted to make this book really detailed and in the end just made it really complex, so that the intended audience wouldn't understand.

I want to make it clear that I really liked the actual story. I just think that the author's execution of the story wasn't fantastic.
