really liked it

'The Sorcerer's House' is a curious book. It was written in the form of letters to and from the protagonist, Bax, and assorted others giving the voyeuristic feel one might have cleaning out an old house and coming upon a stack of letters in the back of a drawer.

I loved the feel of this book; the uniqueness of the letters and the wonderfully distinct 'voice' each of the letters' writers has. While there were certainly no characters to fall in love with here, the mystery the book presents lingers long after tapping the 'home' button in Kindle. (Doesn't quite have the same ring as 'closing the covers', does it?) I am not generally fond of contemporary fantasy, but this book caught my eye with the cover and my attention with the format. I am glad it did.
