Conquering Fate Takes Sacrifice.

Victoria of Ourtown believes two things: that the bright, wandering star in the heavens is an abandoned spacecraft which brought her ancestors to this world and that destiny and the will of gods are nonsense. Vic used to scoff at stories of wizards too, until she acquired their powers. Once a warrior, now a secret wizard, she just wants to l

Aug 11, 2020 rated it it was amazing
A Wizard’s Sacrifice is the second novel in The Woern Saga series and in the previous book, A Wizard’s Forge, the story was mainly Victoria of Ourtown’s story. In this sequel, the secondary characters have a much stronger voice alongside that of Vic and I loved that! This is a story with complex characters who have equally complicated relationships and that is clearly seen through all interactions in this book. There is no good versus evil with a clear line drawn in the sand. From beginning to e ...more

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times. I love the fantasy books that decide to turn away from normal and do their own thing. A.M. Justice has done that with her series that is a unique blend of fantasy and science, technology and magic. So far, this series is two books strong, but I don’t really think it’s mandatory to read the first book before reading the second. Each of these books tells its own story and starts at a unique point. Self-con

Note: I was given this book as a ARC in exchange for a fair review.

A WIZARD's SACRIFICE by A.M. Justice is the sequel to the extremely enjoyable A WIZARD'S FORGE that came out a couple of years ago. The story covered the dark and gritty tale of a young scholar getting enslaved, escaping, becoming an assassin, and then gaining the power of magic. It also dealt with uncomfortable topics like Stockholm's Syndrome and post-traumatic stress disorder.

I really enjoyed the strange science fantasy

The sequel to A Wizard’s Forge, picks up after the vicious destruction of Olmlabaire, the Relmlord’s fortress within the city, and continues Vic’s reign of vengeance to destroy the Relman forces, capture or kill the Relmlord who victimized her, and end a twenty year war between the kingdoms of Relm and Latha. The respite is short lived for the people of Latha, as plots within plots unfold and secrets are revealed.

Through the Devices, instant transporters built thousands of years ago and left li

I received an ARC of this book and reviewed it for the fantasy-hive.

This is the second book in the woern saga but, although I hadn't read the first book, I found I could pick up the key world and story elements in what is quite an immersive approach to fantasy world building.

Justice has a rich cast of characters in a world of complex magic and politics, such that no-one, no matter how evil they may appear is entirely bereft of redeeming features, even if it is only a knowledge of their own ethic

A Wizard’s Sacrifice brings back all of the action, romance and complex threads that were prevalent in the first book of the series, and A.M. Justice does it all with the same strength of detailed storytelling. Each scene is flavour to the five senses, which works equally with the quieter and action-packed moments alike. Leah Casey returns as the audiobook narrator, and once again delivers it all expertly in perfectly-produced audio, bringing the characters and scenes fully to life. There’s no n ...more

Very fine

It's a mighty quest and adventure. The difference is unique in that the hero and heroine never knew the quest. The whole thing wasn't revealed until the last pages.

Wizard’s Sacrifice by A. M. Justice
This is a sequel to A Wizard’s Forge. A interstellar ship is marooned at a planet with an indigenous population. Later, the population has splintered living some who believe they descended from trees. Due to an internal parasite, some people show wizard talents and this is illegal in many places. Vic the protagonist in the first book suffers a bit of a demotion in this book.
Somehow I’ve got this feeling that these two books should be four. Perhaps that is the
