    1. The Sorcerer's AscensionThe Sorcerer's Path, Book 1By: Brock DeskinsNarrated by: William TurbettThis is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.I really enjoyed this fast paced fantasy novel. It was a coming of age novel of a young boy that looses everyone and everything to violence and injustice. He is determined to make everyone who has every hurt him and his loved ones pay for their crimes. But there is always someone watching He is finally noted by a man of great power and of [...]

    2. Ever wanted to read every fantasy book ever published? Well, this is your chance. It has everything Wizards - CheckSorcerers - CheckOrcs/goblins/gnomes/hobgoblins/etc - CheckDragons - CheckHumans/Elves/Dwarves/etc - CheckOrphans - CheckSchool-o-magic - CheckTowers-o-Magic - CheckEvil Tower-o-magic - CheckEvil mind controlling aliens from another dimension - CheckRag to riches - CheckUndeads - CheckAnd the list goes on.

    3. (Originally reviewed on Otherwhere Gazette)There’s something about stories about young people seeking to avenge family members that appeals to quite a few people. Perhaps it’s that our consciences rebel against the idea of someone doing evil and getting away with it.In that vein, the independently-published Sorcerer’s Path series (currently 5 books, the author says he’s writing #6 now) is off to a good start with The Sorcerer’s Ascension. In this book, we’re introduced to Azerick, wh [...]

    4. I went into this one without any preconceptions, other than knowing I had enjoyed the author's urban fantasy novel Shroud of Darkness. I found that though this is a completely different book, it was just as enjoyable. After reading this, I felt that this was what The Name of the Wind should have been if the main character wasn't a complete Mary Sue.When Azerick, son of a wealthy sea trader, has his father executed after he was framed for treason, He and his mother lose everything to the local Du [...]

    5. Ooookaaaaay, here's the deal: the author reaaaaaally liked The Name of the Wind, so he decided to write a remake but add some personal flare. Rothfuss, spectacular work, mwha! True master, modern classic! The plot is perfect: boy loses parents to murder, becomes a street thief for a while, then goes to magic school, makes a friend, gets bullied constantly, then goes travelling. But I think I can polish your story so that it can TRULY shine.For example, Rothfuss, why so tame with the body count? [...]

    6. I started this book on the 20th, and am now on book number 4. This will be my only written review unless something changes in the series from what I have enjoyed so far. The first book was only a 4 star, but the rest of the books have been 5 stars. I almost gave up on the first book. I did not enjoy the first part of the story that lead up to the main character. Additionally, I did not really like most of the sections that were short, but were focused on other characters. I really like books tha [...]

    7. A fantastic book having every element I want in a heroic fantasy, especially the part where the protagonist don't whine about being guilty all the time after killing bad guys. I've read more than 300 novels including the wheel of time series, name of the wind, LOTR,Eragon,Belgariad series, Game of thrones series etc. and I find this book much to my liking for a new author.May be it's a cliche since a poor boy become powerful and all that happens but the way in which the author shows the journey [...]

    8. I enjoyed this story of a young man who’s family is caught up in political wrangling, leaving him and his mother destitute. Azerick’s life deteriorated further with the death of his mother and he sets on the road for revenge, eventually finding his true magical calling. This story quickly draws you in and goes down many roads; from privileged to a thieving street rats, bullied to murderer and wizard to sorcerer. I loved how the villain kept changing with each road Azerick took. The amount of [...]

    9. Not a bad start to the series, and the audio book is pretty good as well. Though it did seem to have a slow start, there were moments in the middle and end that kept me latched onto the book. The character of Azerick is an interesting character. I'm a huge Star Wars fan so, and please keep your tempers cool when I say this, I see a little bit of Anakin Skywalker in him. He's trying to make the most out of his situation, but life just keeps finding ways to screw with him and make him walk down a [...]

    10. The Sorcerer's Ascension is the first book in the Sorcerer's Path series. I originally downloaded it because the premise was interesting, the cover looked nice, and the author had good reviews. All of those things are wins for me, so I jumped head first into this book.PlotThis book has a major plot and a minor plot. The major plot is Azerick's coming of age and coming to realize his true destiny. The minor plot is the search for Dundalor's armor. Both plots are very interesting, but how they are [...]

    11. Torn from a life of comfort and luxury, his family destroyed by political intrigues and aspirations, a young boy must quickly grow into a man before the deadly streets of Southport devour him. Follow Azerick through a page-turning adventure that pits him against thieves, thugs, murderers, and men of power that will stop at nothing to achieve their goals. Azerick must fight just to survive, but for him survival is not enough. A hunger to avenge the wrongs committed against him burns deep within. [...]

    12. Show don't tell. I couldn't get past page 100 due to the info-dumping and fact telling. Every other sentence is stating a fact about a character instead of showing you. Instead of using storytelling to show that Azerick is smart, loves books, respects his weapons master, you are literally told. I felt like I was reading a cliff notes version of the story. The dialogue between characters is really rough. Characters usually repeat facts the narrator already told you and add little personality.I do [...]

    13. This is just one more in a legion of under-the-rader fantasy and scifi novels that have been popping up over the past few years. It was a fun read, I suppose, but it could have been much better with some professional editing. Still, for a self published novel (or at least I'm guessing it was self-published), the Sorcerer's Ascension served to lift me out of boredom. It is not for readers who want a happy ending or dislike anti/dark heroes.

    14. I enjoyed this overall though found it hard going in places but the good parts were excellent and I couldn't put it down, but then in other places the book kind of meandered and I struggled. As I said overall a good book, lots of places for the story to go and develop look forward to starting the next book in a mo!

    15. When I first began I thought the beginning a bit brisk ( I tend to like back story) bit the more I read and the more I followed the growth of Azerick I realized more back story would be redundant. I immediately have moved into book 2 anxious to see the adventures this bright strong brave young man with a passion and loyalty so fierce that you cheer him on even in failure.

    16. Sherlock Holmes once said that he'd make a rather good criminal, and I've always wondered what a story would be like, with a crook who wasn't stupid. The Sorcerer's Ascension is such a book, and it delivers quite well. While the overarching plot itself isn't too interesting, the protagonist's own story is quite good.

    17. After reading this book i searched for book 2. sigh gotta wait =(. A different twist on the coming of age of a boy. A bit of caution would be at the start, lots of violence. Overall: I would highly recommend reading this book!

    18. Very good!Wonderful plot! An exciting young hero and I just liked it very much. X. X. X. X. X. X. X

    19. Very EntertainingI was expecting far less when I downloaded this form . I could not stop reading. I just got book 2.

    20. Azerick's father is given an artifact from the king, to transport on his ship. But when he docks, he is accused of treason because the letter from the king evaporated when it was touched by the Guards. Locked up with no hope of freedom, he seems to be the unwitting accomplice to something larger. When he is murdered in his cell, with all evidence being that it was a mage, his families world is turned upside down. Thrown onto the streets with little to no possessions, Azerick and his mum struggle [...]

    21. This book almost felt a bit like a series of openings to a number of other books, before you reach the point of him becoming the titular sorcerer you had a young boy named Azerick from a reasonably privileged background finding himself on the streets after his father was wrongly implicated in a crime, from there he becomes a fairly successful thief before ending up at the school for wizards and eventually he is discovered to instead be a sorcerer and begins the training for that instead and this [...]

    22. Good story line A little different than the rest as far as stories go. Good start to the series. Must read on.Yeah

    23. Can't get past the first chapter. Narrator sounds like he has a stuffy nose. Why do publishers and authors not choose good narrators?!?!?!?!? It can make or break a book.

    24. I read the entire book in one sitting! I was alternatively laughing out loud or sitting up with anticipation as I read the book. I enjoyed it so much i started on the second book the same day.

    25. This is a very strange book. It never reaches a point where you really like it but somehow you cant seem to put it down. The best I could describe it is "matter of fact". The pace is fast, the characters shallow and the plot totally ambiguous. Add to that there is no logic whatsoever to the world building which is consigned to a couple of cities. Despite that you can't seem to put it down till completion. So I completed it quickly and am moving to the next one in the series.

    26. I liked the book. There is a potential in the story and when I finished it I wanted to read more and see what will happen with the characters. I like the main character - Azerick - although I don't approve of some of his actions. But he is a strong protagonist and I would like to continue reading about his story.My praise goes this far, though. There are some issues concerning the way that the story is told - some situations are not well developed and several times I had the feeling of a how sh [...]

    27. I picked this book up based on other reviews on and was not disappointed.For those of you seeking a reference point, I could possibly compare this setting/genre (not the style) to R.Hobb's Assassin's Apprentice and P.Rothfuss's Name of the Wind.Our main character Azerick, a talented and educated child in his early teens, finds himself living on the streets of Southport. His sole reason to live seems to be to exert his vengeance upon those that have wronged him and his loved one. He struggles th [...]

    28. The author does a great job in describing locations and characters in a level of detail sufficient to allow the reader's fantasy to draw complete scenes without smothering him/her with trivialities. While being packed with a series of rather grim story elements the characters are likeable and particularly the occasional D&D references moved me to smile.Besides some additional editing to get rid of occasional grammar mistakes, the book could probably benefit from time stamps for individual ch [...]

    29. The story has a lot of potential to be entertaining but the way it was presented almost entirely killed my enjoyment of the book. As another reviewer mentioned the writer flat out states almost everything directly in narrative, even things that honestly shouldn't be revealed in the story at that point, and describes very little.This hurts what could be very good characters. But instead of writing dialog and descriptions of their interactions too often the writer skips to narrative or seems to fl [...]
