The Sorcerer's Academy
by Denise Little (editor)

Category: Fiction / Fantasy
320 pages; ISBN: 0756401577

Rating: 9/10  (Ratings explained)
Reviewer: Harriet Klausner


The first reaction to a fifteen-story sorcerer’s academy would be Potter lite. However, the contributors to THE SORCERER’S ACADEMY spin a series of tales intercalated by the locale and by the magic that makes a reader finish in one sitting the entire collection. The stories are fun as apprentice sorcerers and wannabe Gandolfs obtain an education in the use of the arcane powers. Fans of the Potter books will realize that this is a well-done Americanized Hogwarts School for Witchcraft and Wizardry. The reader will want to head past Phoenix to Sedona to audit Sorcery 101, remedial sorcery, and advanced sorcery courses. Attend the labs and the lectures of noted Professors like Edwards, but study hard for that final exam as even college grads will not have seen the likes of it and beware of being the teacher’s pet or class clown in these environs.
