    1 thought on “The Sorcerers' Plague”

    1. Confession: I had no idea there was a 5-book series in the same world as The Sorcerer's Plague. Oops.However, knowing that now, and knowing how easily I got into the book, it shows how well-written this book is. I wasn't lost; there was enough backstory that I knew the basics of Grinsa and Cresenne's history.I like the magic system in the series. Qirsi, the magic-bearing race, use the general magic, and there are different branches of magic: speaking to animals, fire, wind, healing, earth, mind- [...]

    2. I had just read the Wind of the Forelands which is one of my all time new favorite series and saw these books. I didn't know what they were about other than they were set in the same world and that they were written by David B. Coe which was enough for me. I was very happy and surprised to learn that they were about one of the main characters in the Winds of the Forelands and his continuing journey along with his new wife and child. Mr. Coe does it again. We are once agin thrown into the middle [...]

    3. David B. Coe does this thing where he brings in multiple, throw-away characters to assist in "furthering the plot". This drives me CRAZY! I don't want to read 10 pages about someone that I'll never hear from again in the next few hundredBut I pushed through because, as with the series previous to this, the story was so interesting and the characters are so enthralling, you just have. to. know! what happens next. If it weren't for this one habit, the book probably would have gotten 4 stars.

    4. I've read previous series by David Coe and find him to be craftsman of fantasy fiction. His characters are well-drawn, his plots are well-conceived and he provies the right amount of description to help the reader see the story. My only criticism of The Sorcerers' Plague is a naming convention which makes it impossible to determine a character's gender and almost impossible to rememember characters' names.I'll be starting Book Two after a short break.

    5. The story plods along with too much detail regarding daily tasks, and includes a supernumerary set of characters. The book brings back characters from an earlier series, Grinsa and his wife and child, but they are not necessary to the plot, as they do no interaction with the main line.In addition, the entire portion of the story where the Fal'Borna meet, kidnap and enslave Grinsa is unnecessary at this point. Later, it may become necessary, but at this point it feels like filler. In other words, [...]

    6. Having read, and enjoyed, David B. Coe's other two series, I had high hopes for this one as well. I wanted to learn about the Southlands I heard so much about. My complaint about the book/series so far, is one I know many people had with the Winds of the Forelands series: there are too many characters. Unlike in Winds of the Forelands, where the story started off with a few small groups of characters who eventually converged, I don't believe I will be seeing many of the characters in The Sorcere [...]

    7. David B. Coe’s ‘The Sorceror’s Plague’ (Tor, $25.95, 393 pages) is a traditional fantasy, set on a different planet in a pre-industrial society with lots of magic going on. ‘The Sorceror’s Plague’ is the first of a trilogy, though if the pace of this book is any indication, he should have gone for a two-volume set. Like Robert Jordan, pages and pages go by with not much really happening. We hear, and see, the same things over and over again, and yet, by book’s end, the plot has b [...]

    8. I'm having trouble getting into this book. I REALLY liked some of David B. Coe's other works, but this one is not pulling me into the characters and plot as well as his others. My main complaint thus far is that two of the first four chapters introduces some likable characters, then kills them and their entire towns off by the end of the chapter. It's quite a depressing introduction to a necessary part of the plot and could have been presented in a much different fashion that wouldn't have, at l [...]

    9. After reading all the people on say they didn't like I was worried that it wouldn't be good. That was nothing like the case. I have to say Coe kinda reminds me a little of Terry Brooks, maybe not the writing style but I really enjoyed this book just like the Shannara series. It is a continuation of the Forelands books but I found it really easy to follow along even though I hadn't read any of those books (I will when I get the time). Really good book and can't wait to see what happens further.

    10. With the new series, I was forced to demote the continuing story of Grinsa Hal Arriet to "generic ok fantasy novel." I only read the first Southlands book, and have no intention of reading the others, as it seems unlikely the quality will rise to match Rules of Ascension.

    11. This book was fun to read and was jam packed with adventure and horror. The Author David B. Coe tells the story of an old metta women who decides to curse the quirsi villages to avenge her family after the quirsi refused to help her dying village because of her race when she was younger.

    12. Good read thus far. Doesn't move super fast, but I find the characters worthwhile and largely sympathetic. I like it, and am looking forward to volume 2.

    13. Not bad. Not great. It took me a few pages to really get into the story line. I think I liked the first series a little bit better, but it has only been one book.

    14. All I can say is that I found myself cheering for the villain more than anything else. Also, the attention to detail and normal life was quite complete and well written.

    15. Interesting, but a bit confusing at first because I haven't read any of the other books regarding this "world"

    16. I can't seem to get enough of these Qirsi books even though I complain about them. Does this mean I'm a desperate reader? Or are they really better than I think they are?

    17. Another excellent tale from David Coe. I really enjoyed the continuation and the world that David has created in the Southlands. I look forward to continuing the journey with Grinsa and friends.

    18. Blah. Fairly enjoyable until Grinsa and Co show up. They are badly written and it's pretty apparent that there have already been stories told with these characters--stories that I haven't read.

    19. I enjoyed this book and the other two in this part of the series. I recommend reading the earlier Winds of the Forelands books if you really want to get a better understanding of the characters.

    20. A good opener to a new series. The beginning third or so was quite repetitive and annoying, but after that hurdle it gets really good really fast especially when Grinsa returns to the tale :)

    21. I love these characters in the Winds of the Forelands series but for some reason it is lacking in something maybe complexity? I'm not sure, I just am not loving the characters like I did before.
