ORIGINALLY POSTED AT Fantasy LiteratureBridget Lederle is the lighthouse keeper on Sand Island Wisconsin in 1899 She s an outcast having had a baby which died while she was single One night she saves the life of mysterious Valin Kalami whose boat crashed onto the rocky shore of Lake SuperiorIt turns out that Kalami is a sorcerer sent from the kingdom of Isavalta to find Bridget who doesn t realize that she has a tie to this parallel world and some powers of her own With not much to keep her on Sand Island she agrees to return to Isavalta with Kalami There she finds a world full of political intrigue treachery and magic The state of things isn t exactly how Kalami described it back in Wisconsin and it s very hard to know who to trustThe Plot A Sorcerer s Treason winds up slowly until Bridget gets to Isavalta and then it becomes fast paced There is plenty of intrigue and treason going on in the Isavaltan court but Bridget uncovers it for us too early in the plot we aren t left wondering who are the bad guys for long There were several plot elements that seemed only loosely tied to the story I didn t really understand the motives of the Vixen and Baba Yaga for example and I wondered why they were included at all Perhaps this is made clear in future installments but it has me confused so far The ending scene was strange and I think kind of cheesy It was one of those triumphant I ve dealt with my past and now I can move forward kind of scenesThe Characters Sarah Zettel writes some wonderful and believable characters Ananda the dowager Mikkel Sakra and Kalami are all interesting and I would have liked to read from their perspectives Unfortunately Bridget whose perspective we mainly follow is not so admirable There s nothing wrong with her but there s not much interesting either For the most part she gets passively pulled through the plot and doesn t actually do much herself even though we re told that she s a very powerful sorceress There was plenty of tension and many problems for her to deal with but mainly they resolved themselves uickly with little conscious effort on Bridget s part I was hoping to see her rise up to her potential but she never didThe World of Isavalta Before choosing this book I d heard much about the uniue setting of glorious Isavalta but I didn t experience much of it in A Sorcerer s Treason Isavalta is only briefly described I think the references I read must be for other books in the Isavalta series I m tempted to read one just to find out because it sounds like Sarah Zettel s world has wonderful potentialThe Magic System The magic system involves weaving spells with fabric hair etc and I liked it at first However I soon realized that it seemed to have no clear rules When we don t know the rules we can t anticipate what can and can not be done with magic Therefore the author can get the characters out of tight spots too easily by just adding a new magic spell In contrast consider the rule based systems of JK Rowling Brandon Sanderson or Janny Wurts When you know there are limits to the heroes powers not only does this make them understandable but it makes us worry and fret when things go bad for them And of course that makes us connect with them emotionally In fact the characters I liked best in A Sorcerer s Treason were the ones who had no powers at all I can t give you specifics without spoiling the plot but those two had the best scene in the book I actually had to dab at my eyes with a hankyThe writing Sarah Zettel s writing is pleasant easy and understandable but not particularly gorgeous My Tor hardback edition had multiple distracting editorial mistakes mostly words missingConclusion A Sorcerer s Treason is light standard epic fantasy from an independent but somewhat soft female protagonist s perspective Its strengths are the suspense and multi textured plot I d recommend it to those looking for a mysterious and easy readKatFantasy Literature Trollkarlens hatt of Magic and Peril 1899 Sand Island Wisconsin Bridget Lederle is a lighthouse keeper Pillow Talk Puffin Books on this stormy windswept shore The Glass Palace of Lake Superior One cold night she sees a boat foundering near the island's shoals and rescues its lone Rikers High occupant The strangely dressed sailor tells her a fantastic tale Something Like Fate of Is.
