Stripped of her power, with deadly foes at every turn, Magdalen sets out for the safe haven of Toth. An unwilling witness to the murder of a FireDrake along the way, she is captured by a marauding band of Imperial Dog Soldiers. Their ruthless leader, Kaspar, is a crazed fanatic who will stop at nothing to see that she faces Emperor Gamel’s harsh justice.

Unknown to either Kaspar or Magdalen, the Balorian knight responsible for her downfall has learned of her plight. Forsaking his duty to the order, Sir Rodney is compelled to rescue the woman who continues to haunt his dreams, but what is one man’s desire compared to the combined might of an empire, and are things truly the way they seem?

Midwest Book Review
Continuing the superbly crafted action/adventure fantasy Daemon Knight' series that began in 2007 with "FireDrakes" (9780978382407, $14.95), author David Korinetz has now published "Sorceress", the second in this riveting series. Korinetz has a knack for setting up crises for our heroine that leaves the reader fairly breathless with anticipation of how they are going to be survived, let alone resolved. Both "FireDrakes" and now "Sorceress" are well crafted, eminently satisfying reads. Very highly recommended for both personal and community library fantasy/science fiction collections, "Sorceress" will leave enthusiastic readers looking eagerly toward the next title in this outstanding series.

After defeating the powerful sorceress Magdalen and stripping her of her power to save their world from the evil Halfling emperor, the small and brave band of Balorian Knights along with the wizard Aldus make their way home to their families. Unfortunately, the emperor does not give up so easily and soon he regains control of the talisman Aedon they worked so hard to retrieve. Haunted by his love for the sorceress, Rodney is driven to take his knights once again into harms way to free his once nemesis Magdalen and recover Aedon or all they have worked so hard to obtain will be forever lost.

David Korinetz’s Sorceress is book 2 in the Chronicles of the Daemon Knights. This offering is even more developed and the action and characters more compelling than in his wonderful debut novel. In Sorceress Korinetz sets up multiple parallel story arcs – each one which could have been an independent and compelling story unto their own. He masterfully weaves in each as the tension builds in each arc to its ultimate climax where all arcs eventually join. I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. Korinetz’s writing is further refined and one of my favorite sub stories from the first novel involving the transformation of humans and animals into were-beasts is revisited. The heros set out to take on the witch Angelina and save their fallen comrade has one wondering how they could possibly take on such a powerful witch and band of powerful were-beasts and come out alive. This is where Korinetz shines – setting up what should be an impossible scenario involving a rag-tag group of underdogs who must find a way to overcome overwhelming odds. I’d like to consider myself a fairly creative person but in each and every case where the impossible scenario was setup, I was convinced Korinetz had written himself into a corner leaving no reasonable solution out of the situation. Not only was I wrong, but I found myself more than satisfied by Korinetz compelling story telling.

My only complaint, is Korinetz ends this book with a huge cliffhanger. When I finished reading it, I felt the same way I did in my younger years after seeing the end of The Empire Strikes Back in theaters. I couldn’t wait to see the next movie. In similar fashion, I have to know what happens next. The good news is, Korinetz is hard at work on the next chapter of this series. It’s already on my list…

This book was a treat to read. It is well written and the story is charming and interesting. It moves quickly and keeps you glued to the pages at every turn. A beautiful red headed sorceress named Magdalen is not only caught in the dark nets of her former teacher but also in the heart of the commander of the Daemon Knights, both sworn enemies. Magdalen once possessed the power to command the firedrakes, a creature smaller than a dragon, with the aid of the Aedon, but now is stripped of her powers by a wise and good wizard.

Aedon, is one of the four amulets that contain the elfs’ magic. When the four amulets are together they say their power will grant eternal life to the wielder, which is what a Halfling wizard with dark desires wants.

The story doesn’t finish at the end of this book, instead it sets up for a sequel. This book is clean, entertaining and a must read for fantasy readers of all ages.
