“The Sorcerer’s Bane by C. S. Wachter is a heart-pounding read.
The characters are well developed. Some I loved and some I loved to hate, but the story definitely kept me turning pages. I love the main character, Prince Rayne, and I longed to help him as he faced many challenges throughout the book. There were also some unexpected twists and turns in the book. C.S. Wachter is a writer who knows how to tell a story that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. I look
forward to reading the next book in “The Seven Words” series and continuing to follow Prince Rayne on his journey.”  ~ Kelly

The Sorcerer’s Bane – Story Synopsis


Light and dark battle for the soul of six-year old Prince Rayne, heir to the throne of all Ochen and prophesied Light Bringer of the One. Kidnapped, his memories and voice blocked, claimed as a slave, and given the name Wren, he is raised as an assassin.

Sigmund, powerful ancient sorcerer and enemy of the One, plans to frustrate the prophecy by using the young prince to assassinate his own parents. With the death of the Light Bringer and the failure of the prophecy, Sigmund and his demonic colleagues will be free to bring darkness to all seven worlds of Ochen. But what the sorcerer fails to realize is that the One has already claimed the boy, placing within his spirit a glowing ember of light, and giving him support in a world of abuse and violence.

C. S. Wachter           The Author

I started out as a reader … but then, I guess most writers have started that way.

I flunked Creative Writing in college. Of course, I could say it was the professor’s fault; but I admit the fault was mine. I was lazy, self-centered, and full of myself … Oh, I guess I was a typical eighteen-year old. (Please take no offence eighteen year olds, but we all have our moments.) I had no experience, no discipline, and my imagination was in its infancy.

Fast forward forty-some years … I’m now a grandmother with some experience under my somewhat wider belt. And though I am still rather self-centered, I am no longer full of myself. But I would have to admit to greater changes in my level of discipline and a more mature imagination…
