Fantasy is a tough genre for some readers who find it difficult to suspend their disbelief enough to accept magic as a sine qua non of this type of fiction. Once you accept it then the story proceeds as normal, providing of course that you also get the narrative and characters and setting that all good fiction requires.

Jack Lightfoot, son of an Edenite sorcerer who'd came to Earth when Jack was a baby, was reared in a training environment where he learned self-defense in martial arts along with a few simple magic spells.

The story opens with the arrival of a bounty hunter. Jack faces this bounty hunter from Eden almost immediately. Jack's father's old partner and friend had sent the hunter to capture Jack. Seems Jack's father,...more

Jack Lightfoot has a family history that makes him unique to our world. His father is a sorcerer from Eden, an alternate world to our own, and although Jack was raised on our familiar Earth, the sorcerer blood runs deep in his veins. When an Eden bounty hunter tracks down his family, hired by the high sorcerer Morgan, Jack learns that he holds the key to both worlds--and the power to take on Morgan himself.

Bye offers an intriguing take on the classic hero's journey, meshing bibilical myth with D...more

Jack Lightfoot's parents were on the run from their homeworld of Eden. The nasty sorcerer, Morgan, wanted what the Lightfoot family had: the ability to cross over into Earth to take advantage of the technology that Earth has, something that Eden does not.

When Morgan finds a way to send an assassin after the Lightfoot family to find the key to opening the door between worlds, Jack is thrown into a battle between sorcerers. Only problem is, Jack has lived on Earth his entire life and all the magic...more

The Sorcerer's Key was so intriguing I forgot to take any review notes, nor did I find any significant typos.

In this tale of a young sorcerer's journey to connect with the memory of his late father, Clayton Bye has woven magic, sorcery, logic and psychological principals in a delightful montage that kept this reader involved in his fictional world even during the times when reading the next chapter proved logistically impossible.

An excellent romp though the realm of the imagination, The Sorcerer...more

This is a difficult review for me to post. As I received this novel (as a contest winner) directly from the author, I wanted nothing more than to jump right in, thoroughly enjoy the story, and write a wonderful review. I felt it was the least I could do!
