    Description

    The immortal sorcerers - three legendary figures that toppled the empire of Xixis. Each has lived for over a hundred years, leaving a powerful legacy in their wake.

    But their children do not share their renowned immortality, and when the firstborn son of Edrick Theas is killed, sorceress Lydia Hastings is called to investigate the murder. When she discovers a sorcerous trail left by a creature of unfathomable power, she quickly realizes she needs outside help. And while Jonan Kestrian - a spy for a rival military power - might not be Lydia's first choice for an ally, she knows that he has the knowledge and skills that she needs.

    While Lydia and Jonan trace the assassin's trail, Taelien undergoes the Trials of Unyielding Steel, a series of tests to ensure his entry into the Paladins of Tae'os. As he trains for his trials, Taelien faces his fiercest rival yet: Velas Jaldin, a former member of Orlyn's Queensguard with the power to manipulate motion at her whim. With skills far beyond those of an ordinary soldier, the former Queensguard might be the killer that Lydia seeks - or the assassin's next victim.

    Wonderful Improvement

    What made the experience of listening to Stealing Sorcery the most enjoyable?

    Stealing Sorcery, the second book in Andrew Rowe's series, The War of Broken Mirrors, is very much a coming of age novel in every way: for the characters, the plot, the antagonists, and, most importantly, the author. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Nick Podehl's rendition of the characters as he took on the growing cast. Andrew Rowe's world is starting to grow from an interesting idea into a more polished and dangerous place. Whereas the the first book in the series, Forging Divinity, seemed a bit cutesy at times, this second book has worked hard to bring more relevance to the characters' actions and driving purpose.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I enjoyed learning more about what drove each of the characters to act as they do. I also liked some of the intrigue, although it still feels a bit forced at times. The magic system is interesting and starting to mature a bit as the fields of sorcery are broadened and expounded upon. Much of the plot seems to be based around a sort of gulf between those that have new/elite/ancient knowledge of sorcery or abilities and those who do not. Even though I believe this gulf could have been exploited a bit more to bring a bit more color and, perhaps, a bit more realism to the story, it nevertheless provides an interesting story dynamic that Rowe is tapping into more and more. It is always fun to learn with a character as they uncover their own capabilities and learning along with Sal is no exception.

    Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As usual, Nick Podehl delivers a great performance. I enjoyed the different accents that Nick chose to embody the different elements of Rowe's society. In fact, I really feel that Nick's narration lifts this story a bit by bringing a bit more lucidity to elements that are still a bit lacking in background information. ~ A great marriage between author and artist here.

    Excellent

    Any additional comments?

    I'm glad I pushed through some slow parts in the first book, because book 2 was so worth it. I love everything about Velas, and the dynamic between all the characters is great. The trials are all interesting in their own way -- no straight forward duels in this book. This is probably the best book I have read in months.

    The War of Broken Mirrors sharpens its fragments

    Picking up where Forging Divinity left off, Stealing Sorcery is a superior sequel. The plot develops in a more interesting manner and the reveal is satisfying than Forging Divinity. Andrew Rowe has improved his storytelling between books and I continue to enjoy his style of switching first person perspectives with each chapter.

    Nick Podehl continues to deliver amazing performances. I will continue to choose books based on his narration as it has led me to good books and top notch performances. He does a fantastic job of layering on characters with his unique voices for each character.

    Loved it

    The story picks right back up where you left it. I loved it and I wanted more at the end.

    Alright

    I loved Sufficiently Advanced magic, and thought to see what else the author had written. This is a bit heavy on exposition for me, I had trouble caring about the characters. May be great for someone else.

    Great Story, Great Narrator

    This story does away with the all-too-common Mary Sue main characters, allowing them to have problems and failings. This gave it a very rational feel. The story was a pleasure through and through, and the narrator is the best I've heard.

    The Best !

    As usual Nick delivered ! He is the best narrator ! The characters come to life and take on their own personalities even though one man is speaking ! I continue to marvel at the talent of Nick ! The book is fantastic and I loved the twists !

    Thanks for another great listen,

    Melissa M

    Another Awesome book!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Stealing Sorcery to be better than the print version?

    I am sure it is due to the narrator....he is awesome

    What other book might you compare Stealing Sorcery to and why?

    Cycle of Galand

    great book!!!

    I loves it just as much as the first one and now can't wait for the next book!!! it was just what I was looking for, i was not sure at first but then I thought of try it out and I am so glad I did. I live the adult humor and ever characters I also liked how the author wrote this book with the different characters and where they all go into place while the current events are also going!! Plus i really cant believe I found a book that's got a amazing magic system and they even explain how it all works. On top of a great narrator Nick put outs the best in each character.

    Good story, hard to follow

    Written in a way that makes it really hard to follow. Too many viewpoint characters.

    A nice series to bridge the gap

    Thirsting for more Andrew Rowe content, this book helped me bridge the time gap between Diamantine and AA3. It's nice to see how some of the main characters developed in an earlier timeframe. Knowing where they end up takes a toll on the overall tension though.

    Viele offene Fragen bewusst nicht beantwortet

    Viele offene Fragen werden bewusst nicht beantwortet. Das ist sehr schade, zumal der Autor bereits eine neue Serie begonnen hat
