BLURB: The Sorcery Code by Dima Zales From the internationally bestselling authors who brought you the Krinar Chronicles comes a captivating tale of intrigue, love, and danger in a world where sorcery is entwined with science . . . Once a respected member of the Sorcerer Council and now an outcast, Blaise has spent the last year of his life working on a special magical object. The goal is to allow anyone to do magic, not just the sorcerer elite. The outcome of his quest is unlike anything he could’ve ever imagined – because, instead of an object, he creates Her. She is Gala, and she is anything but inanimate. Born in the Spell Realm, she is beautiful and highly intelligent – and nobody knows what she’s capable of. She will do anything to experience the world . . . even leave the man she is beginning to fall for. Augusta, a powerful sorceress and Blaise’s former fiancée, sees Blaise’s deed as the ultimate hubris and Gala as an abomination that must be destroyed. In her quest to save the human race, Augusta will forge new alliances, becoming tangled in a web of intrigue that stretches further than any of them suspect. She may even have to turn to her new lover Barson, a ruthless warrior who might have an agenda of his own . . . WHERE TO PURCHASE THE SORCERY CODE {Click to Purchase}

Dima holds a Master’s degree in Computer Science from NYU and a dual undergraduate degree in Computer Science / Psychology from Brooklyn College. He also has a number of hobbies and interests, the most unusual of which might be professional-level mentalism. He simulates mind-reading on stage and close-up, and has done shows for corporations, wealthy individuals, and friends.

Aside from that, he also enjoys learning about current and future technologies that might enhance our lives, including artificial intelligence, biofeedback, brain-to-computer interfaces, and brain-enhancing implants.

Keep in mind, though, Dima Zales’s books are going to be much more PG 13 . . . at least that’s the plan for now. Anna Zaires is the love of his life and a huge inspiration in every aspect of his writing. She definitely adds her magic touch to anything Dima creates, and the books would not be the same without her.

And my review!

I received a free copy in exchange for a fair review.

I found this an enjoyable read. From the very first page it reminded me of the set up of Weird Science–remember that movie?  It’s the one where a geek decides to create a perfect girlfriend in the form of a robot. (She would have made a great fembot in Austin Powers as well).

Well, this book starts with a rather similar scenario. Meet nerdy sorcerer Blaise, who has been sequestered in his tower for over a year working on creating the perfect thinking object of magic.

What he gets instead is a young beautiful woman with a mind like a computer and unprecedented magical powers.

I found the beginning a little comical because of this. The beauty and innocence of this conjured female against the extreme awkwardness of the sorcerer was funny. I worried that it might become a geek boy’s dream come true, but the action swiftly moved to other things from there. Through it, the reader learns the politics of the land as well as the social issues afflicting everyone.

This was a quick read, and there’s plenty more to come before the tale is over. I liked quite a few aspects of Dima’s world, including the use of mathematics for magic. The book appeared fairly well edited and I didn’t find any glaring issues to detract from the reading.

I give this a four out of five stars.
