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
I could not put The Sorcerer’s Bane down, it was so interesting. I generally read all my books on audio, as I drive, because I am so busy. C. S. Wachter’s book was different. I made time to read. I lost a lot of sleep, but it was worth it. –Thom
With fantasy being my favorite genre, I didn’t know what to expect when I opened The Scorcerer’s Bane. However, this series exceeded my expectations with every turn of the page. Wachter did a great job of creating a captivating storyline early on and kept the momentum going as the story continues. The struggle between good and evil is a prom- inent theme, but developed in a complex and layered approach, which makes for an in- teresting read.
This riveting debut and compelling coming-of-age fantasy introduces us to a crown prince kidnapped at a tender age, rendered mute by dark magic, and forced to endure unspeakable horrors. He may not be able to utter a word, not even to cry out for help, but that makes his story of overcoming pain, finding his true identity, and thwarting the very evil that enslaves him all the more captivating. With skilled storytelling the likes of Ted Dekker, Wachter pulls the reader deep into the world of Ochen where readers will discover the power of resilience, faith, and sacrifice.
A DYNAMIC AND “OUT OF THE BOX” CHRISTIAN FANTASY OF DEEP DARKNESS AND BLINDING LIGHT. I COULDN’T PUT I DOWN. WITH ALL ITS TWISTS AND TURNS, I COULD NOT PREDICT HOW IT WOULD END.
I AM 66 YEARS OLD BUT, I PLAN TO REREAD IT SOON. IF YOU BUY ONE BOOK THIS YEAR—MAKE IT THE SORCERER’S BANE. (OR THE WHOLE SERIES.)
From the first chapter to the last, the author kept this reader intrigued with twists and turns. I felt as though I was on an emotional roller coaster ride with Rayne as he jour- neyed through the horrors of being tortured by Sigmond and his cronies. Not only did this author use science fiction to describe the different parallels, but she also infused spiritual beliefs to make the main character believable and likable. This is one book that I would recommend to anyone who likes suspense, adventure, and twists. –Mary
There is no gentle entry into the story in this book. I was immediately engaged by the charac- ter descriptions and development. The author knows her characters well and allows the reader to get to know them at a nice pace. You are drawn into a crisis involving kidnapping and memory manipulation. As you continue through the pages of this book you will lose your heart to the gentle hearted main character. –Becky
When starting “Sorcerer’s Bane”, I was apprehensive since I don’t read many fantasy books. I have to be honest that I was thoroughly hooked by the end of the second chapter. By the end of the first book I was fairly sure this would make an excellent movie. The character’s, whether good or evil, were engrossing. Sigmund is beyond evil and I found it hard to set the book aside when the story line dealt with him. I found “Sorcerer’s Bane” an excellent read. –MJ
When I read The Sourcers Bane by C. S. Wachter, I was taken into Rayne’s life. With all that happened to this young man he still became the man who would bring the light. After I finished the book I wanted to read more and more to know what happens next.
