So I Married a Sorcerer is book two in The Embraced series by Kerrelyn Sparks. Even though it’s on my list of books to read, I have not read the first book in this series yet. Even though this is labeled a stand alone, I admit that in the beginning, I struggled a bit with understanding all of the details of this world. Kerrelyn has taken great pains and constructed a very detailed setting. In time, I found my way and thoroughly enjoyed this book. There was so much more to these main characters t

The second book in the series and I think you really need the first one to get it. The world is pretty complicated to just walk into without some set-up, but it's worth it to learn. Also, these stories have a bit of a retelling-fairy tales thing going. The first one had a slight Beauty and the Beast, and this one has a tiny Snow White feel. They are not retellings, exactly, but just have a few similarities.

I kept waiting for it....

5 - "Don't ever leave me..." Stars!

We return to the world of Aerthlan, and all its magic with the second book in Kerrelyn Sparks The Embraced series. I didn’t think she would be able to top the first book, but So I Married a Sorcerer was even better.

I definitely think this is a series that needs to be read in order and not as standalones. So much happened in the first book, that gave you the introductions to many of the characters in this story that you lose a huge amount of background if you do

First off, I really enjoyed So I Married a Sorcerer. Now, while I really enjoyed it, I think the title is a wee bit misleading. Married? Bloody hell!! I don’t know about you, but when I see Married in the title, I automatically think that the couple is married throughout most of the book. Maybe, deep down, I’m also wishing and hoping that it’s going to be a story where the couple connects early and fight the evil forces as a team. In reality, So I M

Amazing second book. It was just WOW!

My heart just broke for Rupert and everything he had been through. Brigitta is just perfect for him. Loved the side romance with Sister Fallyn and Stefan. There was lots of drama, action, plus sweet times and romance. Loved seeing all the sisters again. Can't wait for the next book...dragons...

So I Married A Sorcerer is the second book in the Embraced series. And first off I want to mention how GOOD this book was, just as good if not better than book one. We have our heroine, Brigitta, who grew up on a island,along with her other adopted sisters. Brigitta knows that her fate is destined with the number seven and that it will happen very soon.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
This was a highly entertaining book and I'm kicking myself for passing up book 1. The covers didn't really snag my attention. It took reading a few glowing reviews to get me to try this book and I am so glad that I did. This is one of those cases to not judge a book by it's cover.

There is so much going on in this book. It had a little bit of everything from action adventure, fantasy world building with a taste of historical romance. It was fast paced and had great character and plot development

I loved this book! I enjoyed the first book in the series, How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days, so I was really excited to start reading this book. This book was just as good as I had hoped it would be. Once I started reading it, I didn't want to put it down and ended up reading almost the entire novel in a single day. I didn't want it to end because I was having such a good time getting lost in this magical world. This really was a jo

I've read this book like a parody.
It is similar to the film The Princess Bride, where the princess is behaving like a cliche princess, the prince like a cliche prince the villain the same, the secondary characters the same!

Just change "Inigo Montoya" into "Rupert" and there you have it!!!

And here just change "Roberts" into "Rupert" and there you have it again!!!

So I married a Sorcerer is a standalone and is part of the Embraced series. The series have silly covers and silly titles and I find it a bit misleading, but it works in your benefit. This isn’t a smutty book, I would even describe it more as a young adult read with a well thought out storyline and a lot of character development. You know those pretty covers with a young lady in a beautiful dress that is flowing in the wind? Yeah, it should have one of those covers.

So I Married a Sorcerer is a fun, fanciful read.

As the second book in The Embraced series starts, we find Brigitta, a magic user traveling on a ship with her adopted sisters from the Isle of the Moon to visit Luciana (The sister who found her perfect guy in How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days.

While on route the ship is overtaken by “pirates”, taking Brigitta and one of the nuns with him.

Mini review:


I received this E-ARC via the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I heard about this book through a friend. Decided to request it. Unfortunately it wasn't for me.

I did not care for anything. The writing style was odd. And it was really annoying how Rupert had to remind himself that Brigitta was the enemy. Simply based on her looks.

Do not recommend.

Macaroni and Cheese of the books. A great comfort book to get lost in.
I read a reviewer saying it was like an adult Disney story and I have to agree. By the end of it, everything wrapped up in a pretty package with a bow on top, it was very much like Disney.

That being said, I love Disney.
My time Disney at least, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, not this Frozen/Tangled drivel.

I was both so anxious to read this book and at the same time scared.  First anxious because I loved the first book and couldn't wait to continue the story.  But scared because I loved the first book and I didn't want this one to disappoint me and then lose one of my new paranormal series to look forward to.  Rest assured, this was as fun a ride as I was expecting.

But also nothing like I thought it would be!  Sorcerers, pirates, traveling in the high seas, kidnapping, dragons, and another bat

So I Married a Sorcerer is the second book in The Embrace series by Kerrelyn Sparks.

We are treated to a love story that takes place on the high seas and a bit on dry land. Theirs secrets, drama, past wrongs that need writing, action, and romance.

Well for starters, I loved this story and it built onto the last one very nicely BUT I have to admit I was getting a bit sick of so much "non-violence" I was starting to feel like it was propaganda.

See, I read for entertainment and NOT enlightenment, if I want to get preached to I will go to a church or something. I do not want to see it in books I read for entertainment. If there is some evil slime who deserves to die, I want him dead. Is that too much to ask?

I love the way this author thinks and the stories she tells. They are out there and at the same time they are your love stories.

It's drawing time for Brigitta's telling stone future to come to pass and she isn't at all echoed.

This could be a coincidence or for real but she has this gut feeling that whatever it is it will be bad.

When a handsome stranger, a pirate, shows up it's feels like it begins right now.
