Overview

The Soprano Sorceress, the first novel in L. E. Modesitt, Jr.'s fantastic Spellsong Cycle, now in trade paperback for the first time.

 

Anna Marshall wishes she could be anywhere but Ames, Iowa, and anything but a singer and music instructor at Iowa State University. She gets far more than she expected when she is magically transoported to the world of Erde.

 

On Erde, Anna is no longer just a professional singer, she is a sorceress, potentially the strongest in the whole world. In this world, song is magic, and a wrong note can mean death to a sorcerer. Because Anna has trained for a lifetime to reach the level where she won't miss a note even under the worst conditions, she can sing more powerfully and precisely than anyone else.

 

Anna’s power does not go unnoticed. The moment she arrives, she becomes a target: both the political entities, who fear the unknown power she represents, and the sexist men of Erde, who fear a powerful woman, try to kill her. Merely to survive, Anna must learn enough song-magic and enough about Erde not only to ensure her survival, but to create a new life for herself.

Reading the reviews I found several readers complaining about how the story slips back and forth from past to present tense. Being an avid reader I found this ingenious. When past tense was being used we were being told a story of what was happening. As the story slipped into present tense we were being invited to become involved in the story, to become a part of it. I live with chronic pain and reading Is a much-needed distraction from the pain and find this storytelling style refreshing.

I was enchanted by a story that made hard work and talent a powerful force. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

I was very impressed with this book,and I'd say it is one of Modesitt's better novels. I especially liked the imagery and action. I didn't read it. I lived it. I enjoy Modesitt's work, and look forward to any other works put out.
