It danced joyfully as the howling winds tore it to shreds. The Sorcerer followed the destruction and blindly snaked her way towards Castle Adiart.
She dropped her veil and revealed the familiar face of the Priest with a ghostly complexion. The sound of her staff pounding on the gate boomed throughout the castle. The revelers could feel the ground shake with each thump and chalked it up to the great beasts walking along the parade route. Visibly angry, the Sorcerer stopped knocking.
She lifted her gnarled wooden staff into the air and a blue aurora grew up through her hands and into the sky. The desert grew quiet as she thrust her staff into the ground and threw open the door. The Sorcerer lifted her veil and walked casually down the empty corridor with clueless parade goers streaming passed her at the opposite end.
The Inquisitor read the tiny symbols to himself out of a thick, dragon-leather bound book. He looked up, but the dust clouds blew into his face and made it impossible to see where he was going.

He raised the sleek metallic staff in front of his face and whispered a few words. The head of the staff glowed red. He continued his trek forward as he waved the wand back and forth in front of his path. The Inquisitor chased the music from side to side, but every time he felt sure of its origin, it fired up from the opposite side. Carefully, he walked down another of the endless sand dunes before getting caught in his robes and stumbling down to the bottom. He frantically searched for his staff in the darkness.
The Inquisitor snatched it out of the sand and followed behind. With the parade moving clockwise along the perimeter of the castle, the Sorcerer went against the stream. As she pushed aside one rambunctious kid, the Sorcerer could hear one of the castle guards yelling in her direction. She flashed anger on her face and began to draw dark energy into her right hand.
The Sorcerer made her way to the inner edge of the parade and reached out to the guard, who pulled her out of the fracas. She knocked a bit of sand out of her cloak and into her right hand, leaned in close to the guard, and sprinkled a bit on his sword.
A March of Kings
The crowd washed over the Inquisitor as he scanned the area. He detected a few weak magic users in the throng of unwashed masses moving away from him.
He turned to look at the incoming hoard when he felt a dark presence pushing forward. The cold feeling started at the precipice of one of the waves and rushed towards the Inquisitor. He briefly locked eyes with a large, oafish man robotically waiving the Adiart flag above his head. With the cold of despair ready to crash down on him, the Inquisitor pushed his way to the edge of the crowd and threw himself against the wall.
Gameplay: Sorcerer King
The darkness continued down its path while he caught his breath. The pale blue light emanating from his black staff was almost overlooked in the frenzy. Just a few meters further down the parade route, a hooded figure stood along the wall. The light grew darker and the Inquisitor gathered his strength. He tugged lightly at the source of the magic with the staff and focused his mind on the task.
He quietly whispered the spell aloud and wrestled with the darkness.
The Inquisitor raised his voice. The god of darkness is banished from this plane. The time of Corax is at its end. The Inquisitor clenched both hands around the staff and they shook with effort and exhaustion. With one final burst of energy, he thrust the staff forward and drew the dark force kicking and screaming back towards him.
The demonic energy relented. The exhausted old man clenched it in his fist and fell to one knee. When he opened his hand, a thin wisp of dust fell to the ground and blew away in the wind. I liked the first book, but, unfortunately, this one fell flat for me.

I didn't particularly enjoy the cliffhanger ending either. I could definitely see the innocence trying to be preserved for the love story, but it was almost as if the author was trying too hard. Still, if you can get past the grammar, you may like it. For my clean readers: Includes mild violence, murder, kissing and war I liked the first book, but, unfortunately, this one fell flat for me.

Sorcerer King shows that Stardock has finally found the fantasy-strategy fun
If I am to buy them all preferably on audio it is going to cost a fair bit. And I don't feel the series is good enough to warrant spending that amount of money So for now I am going to take a break, and if I find myself still thinking of how the story will progress I might pick it back up :.
