I liked her can-do spirit and her commitment to battling out-of-control,power-mad witches in the human world. She has a conscious and struggles with mundane life issues. She's also a self-described Goth girl. All these story elements kept me intrigued and coming back to find out what would happen next. I can't wait to read Book 2 in the Sorceress Series, titled The Sorceress Screams.
Anya Breton has written an exciting, action-packed novel with some really great characters. I like the premise of two adjoining worlds, magic and human. Kora is very likeable and I was quickly caught up in her adventures. She lived in the world of the gods for the first ten years of her life, but since then she has lived in the human world, acting as an agent for her mother and keeping witches from getting out of control. Kora has some amazing powers, but at heart she is still a young woman fresh out of graduate school wanting to start her own business. Her mother keeps interrupting with various requests for favors, which Kora knows are really orders, sending Kora all over the world to stop witches who are misusing their powers. In spite of the interruptions, she does manage to open her store and I really like the assistant she hires, Nell, the eldest child of the Air witch high priestess. Nell is able to tell Kora all about the Wikup community and Nell lets Kora know that she also has some issues with the magical community. Kora and Nell bond over their mutual dislike of Desmond Marino, the head Water witch, who tries to drive Kora out of Wikup. He may be good looking, but he is truly power-hungry and full of himself.
Breton takes her readers on a marvelous adventure, and I recommend this novel to any lovers of fantasy. The characters are well-drawn, the setting is intriguing, and the plot moves quickly with lots of excitement. The Only Sorceress is the first in a series, but it ends with most of the current plot lines tied up. That being said, I really can't wait for the next book in the series and I hope it is published soon.

From the beginning of the book to the end, Kora butts heads with the one of the high priests, Desmond Marino. He is dubbed Desmond the Dick, and I wholeheartedly agree. About halfway through The Only Sorceress I started really liking his character and got intrigued. I'm team D the Dick all the way. The Only Sorceress is a great start to a series, and any Urban Fantasy lover will love it.
Kora Walsh the sorceress daughter of Hecate moves to Sedona and the magical pocket of Wipuk to start a rarities shop. Hecate wanted her daughter to be a spy on the residents of Wipuk. Kora just wants to open her shop and make a go of the business. The leaders of Wipuk do not want her to stay and work to make her want to leave.
The Only Sorceress is start of an interesting series mixing up magic and urban fantasy. I’m looking forward to the following books in the series.
Take a woman who wants to live her own life, add in the fact that she’s the product of a taboo relationship, then add a mother who demands her daughter to complete orders that take her away from her plans, and throw in a dash of 2 separate worlds living next to each other…this is the recipe for The Only Sorceress by Anya Brenton! This book was so exciting, I could barely bring myself to put it down. This may have been the first book I read from Ms. Brenton, but it definitely won’t be the last!!
