Trio of Sorcery features three tales duh of various lengths about strong women who serve as psychic investigators in some capacity This seemed like it would be a lot of fun when I picked it up but I had forgotten what a self righteous character Diana Tregarde can be I ve read three books featuring Tregarde I still don t like her she sucked the enjoyment out of her own story The other two stories were much better especially the one featuring techno shaman Ellen McBride They were exciting and featured some fascinating concepts So three stories three stars

summary Trio of Sorcery

free read Trio of Sorcery ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Mercedes Lackey ½ 6 download Death  Ghost in the Machine  Ellen McBride computer programmer extraordinaire techno shaman The programmers and players of a new MMORPG find that the game’s “boss” a wendigo is “killing” everyone even the programmers’ characters with their god like powers A brilliant debugger Ellen discoveres that the massive computing power of the game’s servers have created a breach between the supernatural world and our own This wendigo isn’t a bit of code it’s the real thing and it’s on the brink of breaking out of the computers and into the real world?. This book consists of three novellas Two of them are about the heroines Lackey wrote about before Diana Tregarde and Jennifer Talldeer The last one is an original story All three are fairly weak Arcanum 101 a Diana Tregarde storyThis story starts with a huge and unnecessary info dump To compound this problem there are too many involved explanations later in the story as if the readers must be initialized into the genre of fantasy As if they don t already know about magic This aspect of the tale really ticked me off As for the plot during her college days Di and a bunch of her student friends help the police to find a kidnapped girl The kidnapper has magical powers so Di must use her own magic to find and defeat him And all the time she is doing magic Di is whining feeling sorry for herself because she is a Guardian too lonely and must do magical stuff She really annoyed me or perhaps the author did This novella has a feel of being written by an inexperienced writer and never revised Maybe it was exactly that Maybe the author just unearthed one of her earliest never published stories and included it in this anthology without further editing I don t know of course I m guessing but the story is rather flaccid 1 star Drums a Jennifer Talldeer storyThis story is better than the first No info dump no extraneous explanations A malevolent ghost is threatening a young woman and the Native American PI Jennifer Talldeer banishes the ghost after some violence edged ado and magical brandishing My objections despite her proclaimed magical powers and Indian Medicine knowledge Jennifer can t really fight off the nasty ghost He is too strong for her so she uses all the help she can get including a couple of god spirits of Native American mythology I suppose you don t have to be a magician to let a couple of friendly godlings deal with one wicked ghost You just should know how to ask them nicely and Jennifer didn t even do that Her boyfriend brought the helpful deities to her It smacks too much of deux ex machina to be satisfactory 2 starsGhost in the MachineToo much uasi computer talk For a former computer programmer me it didn t sound authentic Granted I ve never programmed games I worked mostly with accounting software but even so all the techno babble seemed a bit off as if a writer unfamiliar with computer programming decided to write about magic interfering with computer codes The story is entertaining though the best of the three a techno witch destroying a mythical villain who has taken possession of an online computer game The pace is fast and the charmingly arrogant character of the digital witch and hacker extraordinaire Ell made me smile 25 stars The average 2 stars

free read Trio of Sorcery ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Mercedes Lackey ½ 6 download New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Mercedes Lackey presents three exciting short urban fantasy novels featuring three resourceful heroines and three different takes on the modern world and on magics both modern and ancient Arcanum 101  Diana Tregarde practicing witch romance novelist Guardian of the Earth Studying at Harvard Diana is approached by Joe O’Brian a young cop who has already seen than one unusual thing during his budding career The distraught mother of a kidnap victim is taking advice from a “psychic” and interfering in the police i. I had never read anything by Mercedes Lackey before so I figured this collection of novellas would be a good place to start instead of jumping into a series I was pleasantly surprised by the uality of the writing and how much I enjoyed the stories The three stories all featured a female protagonist who is capable of performing magic They were all intriguing and well written with different settings both in geography and timeI enjoyed the first story the most where the protagonist was a Harvard college student who was helping the police investigate a missing girl What I liked most about it was the collection of characters and how Diana the story s protagonist used these non magical people to help her in her investigation The second story with a Native American ghost controlling a woman was also neat The least of stories was the final one where a Wendigo was taking over a video game and threatening to enter the real world In that case believability was a serious issue and I had a hard time buying into the story but I still enjoyed reading that one as well I give this collection a thumbs up and would definitely read Mercedes Lackey againCarl Alves author of The Invocation
