Brigitta has never known anything about her family. Having
been raised on the Isle of Moon by nuns, all Brigitta knows
is that she is Embraced; born with supernatural powers that
allow her to see the things people want to keep hidden when
she touches them. When she learns she's actually a princess
and her evil half-brother King Gunther is demanding she be
brought back to their kingdom, Brigitta hopes she can find
refuge from the tyrant with her sister who is the Queen of
her own kingdom. But before she can get to the safety of her
sister's, Brigitta is taken captive by a pirate who says he
has plans of his own for her.
Infamous pirate Rupert, well known amongst the five kingdoms
as a sorcerer who can control the wind, has one purpose in
life; revenge. Having lost everything that he holds dear
nineteen years ago when then King Garold and his son Gunther
destroyed his family, Rupert will do anything to get back
what was stolen from him, even kidnap the King's half
sister. Having waited all these years to get his revenge,
Rupert never imagined the one thing standing in his way
would be the very girl he kidnapped. Their fiery attraction
is wreaking havoc on his revenge plans but can this pirate
really trust the daughter of his greatest enemy?
Kerrelyn Sparks is one of my favorite authors. She's one of
my go to authors when I want something that's funny and
adventurous, so when she announced she was going to quit
writing the series she's known for and branch out with
something new, I was a bit apprehensive. Sparks being the
fabulous writer that she is though, I really had nothing to
SO I MARRIED A SORCERER is the second book in Sparks'
marvelous new series, The
Embraced, and it has all the trademarks you expect to
find when you read a book by her. There's a dash of
everything for everyone; humor, romance, suspense, danger.
And you get two romances for the price of one. Not only do
you get to watch Brigitta and her pirate fall for each
other, there's also a love story with a nun. Talk about
original! And the way with which Sparks' presents the
story, it becomes such an integral part of what's going on
without feeling forced. I loved it.
With two books down and only five girls being raised by the
nuns on the Isle of Moon, I'm already lamenting the end of
series. There are three books left, with the next one coming
out in March, but I'm really hoping Sparks will figure out
how to extend the series with other characters. One of the
most unique and original series I've read in quite a while,
with SO I MARRIED A SORCERER, Sparks shows us she has a
limitless imagination that'll keep us captivated for years
The second book in one of the freshest, most breathtaking
fantasy romance series to come along in years!
