Adam is struggling within himself, in search of acceptance, stability and love. When he learns that he possesses the same magic within himself that supposedly killed his mother, he vows to protect the ones he loves.
Leaving the only life he's ever known behind, he leaves his farm, his best friend Pete, and the love of his life Stacey in order to keep them safe from his magic.
Playing gigs from bar to bar, seeking the only thing that can keep him from feeling lonely if only for a night, he uses his magic on woman to help them acknowledge what they are already feeling, and keep him company.
When he decides its time to go home, he swears he would never use his magic on those he loves. When he runs into Stacey, it stirs up old feelings that never died, between both of them. Stacey demands answers as to why he left and Adam struggles to find the courage to tell her the truth. Will he tell Stacey his secret? If he does will she accept it?
The Sorcerer's Songs was absolutely beautiful. I don't know if it's because I first listened to the CD, Weathervanes, written and composed by Steven Howell, and the whole inspiration for the book, but this book is truly moving. Kiki has implemented songs from the CD into the book, with such a description and connection to the story itself that you are literally moved by the words she's written. I do know because I listened to the CD, I was able to imagine Adam actually singing the words as they sound on the album, placing myself right in the scene.
I also know I found myself struggling right along with Adam, hoping that he will decide to tell his loved ones everything and that it wouldn't be a mistake in the end. A true battle of magic vs love. I loved it.
I give The Sorcerer's Songs ***** (5) Stars, BK Walker
