Daughter of the Sorcerer King by Shereen Vedam
The Wild Rose Press
Short, Sweet
Review by Peony


Samara is furious when her father, the Sorcerer King, advocates a boy from a foreign kingdom as his successor simply because three witches foretold the event. Then the king asks her to escort the child safely back to his realm. If that were not bad enough, as if Samara were incapable of discharging the distasteful duty, he insists a knight accompany them on the journey home. But when a grieving dragon steals the child, Samara is afraid her father will never forgive her this mistake, or worse, think she had intended the boy harm. Desperate to rescue her charge, she turns to her too-amorous knight-escort for help.

I was captivated by the first lines of “Daughter of the Sorcerer King.” With an opening of mysticism and intrigue, and set in a wonderful castle, this story drew this reader in and held my interest until the last dragon had been taken care of. And I say that loosely, because the author is very clever about taking care of dragons in this story!

Well written and filled with vivid details, this is a tale of a woman’s journey toward her destiny—despite that destiny having taken an unexpected twist. The characters in this story sparkle. Samara is brave and intelligent, Jack honest and courageous and Sir Hugh is all anyone would think a man in his position should be. While this is very short, it is very good. Highly entertaining! Castles, dragons and adventure, all in one small, sweet package.
