Completely entertaining

This was the fourth book by this author and I believe this was my favorite thus far. As in most of Perkins' books things are rarely as they seem. Yet the wat it was written allowed for a seamless flow. The characters all had a purpose and were determined to reach their prescribed solution. What was fun was the twisted and turns in the plot. Once they occurred it made sense but sometime as the author sometimes does so well, they seem to take as life of their own. People are

This is a fantasy set in the US more or less now, but in an alternative universe. However, that does not free it from being able to comment on some current social concepts, e.g. inequality is really well established with just about everything controlled by the Serenity Corporation, although not many realize this. Somewhere, beyond the icewall in the Arctic, there is the garden of Eden, and a river that conveys immortality, meanwhile the elder von Buren wants that, and for reasons unexplained, al ...more

Should have been split into more than one book

This book is a solid 3 out of 5 stars, but there are a few things i could not in my personal opinion look past to give it a 5 and the first thing is there is just too much going on in this book. There is political espionage, corporate monopolies, you can genetic engineered human and other species, and in a way even some apocoliptic possibiliites. Just too much. There are also so many different storyline, that I will say the author does weave amazing

The way the elite members of the government feel towards the mass is pretty offensive, being as they believe they’re better and smarter than everyone else. This book alone gives an example on exactly that, providing their opinions that the “people” are docile individuals who lack any form of intelligence. Serenity Corporation, along with William B. Harman and Robert Dewhurst seems to be running the show as far as getting things in order with decisions to continue using the mass as pawns in a gam ...more

I like this

I found this story fascinating because at first, I didn't realize that there was a sci-fi element to it. Now, before you write it off for that reason, you should give it a try. You won't even realize that it's what the book is about until the end. I loved the storyline and I know that there are a lot of books about the storyline, but nothing like this one because the twist is amazing. I would almost say that a story like this could have been written by one of the most renowned author

Buried in the arctic is a secret lab of sorts where one man has created two figures or people. He’s played the part of the mad scientist and he is all but ready to ditch the world as we know it and turn it over so he can live as an immortal in a paradise. The current world is filled with lies and deceit (sounds like what we have going on right now) and an alternative media journalist decides that he is gonna get to the bottom of this mess. There are some other weird things going on too and when ...more

This is a good book to read. The story was a great read. If you’re love a mix of genres such as science fiction, fantasy, politics and thriller all mixed in together this is the book for you.
In this book you will find that there is the faction of the government that are given special privileges while the general population is treated like crap and told what they can and cannot do. This story is broken up into acts. And in my opinion would have made a great series instead of one long book! There’

Sorcerer’s Dynasty is another great novel written by Stephen Perkins. The very first thing I liked (and I still love) about this book is its length. In roughly 300 pages, the author put everything he wanted to say. I think that is good length, because if the book is, let’s say 200 pages longer, it would be boring and everything would seem farfetched. 300 are just right.
Secret organization(s) who want to rule the world (or who already rule the world), one man who wants to reach something every h

Good read full of adventure

If you’re into a mix of science fiction, fantasy, politics and thriller all mixed in together Sorcerers Dynasty is the book for you. It has a little bit of everything all rolled into one story!the story is broken up into acts, which kind of works, but I think I would have made it into a series myself instead of one long book! There’s so much going on that I sometimes found myself lost! I felt like I was scrambling around trying to find the story line again. But that al

MJ (The Book Recluse Review)
In many ways, Stephen Perkins’s book Sorcerers’ Dynasty reminds me of American Gods by Neil Gaiman. However, instead of the Gods of ancient mythology, it plays on the mythology of Christianity. Sorcerers’ Dynasty features a wide collection of characters that intertwine throughout the novel. The characters are complex and dynamic, however, at times I am left wondering how a character can change so dramatically from one scene to the next. At times a character changes within the same scene. These i ...more

Intro to Sorcerers' Dynasty: "The new age of darkness was about to fall. It was the epoch of nightmares, demons, and hateful spirits, hatched out from the foul womb of mankind's subconscious."

Dark, right? Alternate histories tend to go that route and author Stephen Perkins provides no break from the norm. I want to say very little about the plot because discovering every little thing in this flipped inside out fantasy gave me the optimum reading experience.

To every positive there is a negative,

What would you give up to live forever? This is about one man who is willing to sacrifice everything and everyone to do just that. Follow him as he sort his life out and how he will go about it? Will he succeed? See if he will

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Overall this is a very complicated science fiction story about a dark company (The Serenity Corporation) that either controls or influences pretty much everything in the world in one way or another. This company believes it has a plan for making the world better but it involves wiping everything out and starting over. There is a LOT going on in this book and it gets rather complicated. Considering that, I think the author does spend a little too much time describing things that don't really need ...more

I had a really hard time with this book. The writing style didn't draw me in and felt overly detailed without contributing much to the story. I was confused by a lot of the content, which didn't seem to contribute to the story, but did find that some sections were interesting. Based on this book alone, I would not read another novel by this author.
