Adam has spent years on the road, traveling from musical gig to musical gig. In The Sorcerer’s Song by Kiki Howell, Adam has the gift of singing spells, tapping into the emotions of his listeners to evoke more powerful emotions. One night, feeling very lonely, he sings about the girl he left behind when he discovered his power and left his home town. Fearing he has sung her back to the home town, he finds himself finally returning home.
Stacey spent years recovering from the hole Adam’s abandonment left in her life. She is now a successful attorney in a big city but finds herself returning home to finally deal with the house her parents left her. Running into Adam on her first day back was not part of the plan but Stacey finds herself drawn to Adam once again but can she trust her heart again?
I loved the inspiration of this novel being a song written by the author’s husband. Kiki does a wonderful job of weaving the story with the lyrics of various songs. I also loved how Adam was irritated to be referred to as a siren, which is exactly what I thought of when I started reading about his powers. Reading the novel reminded me of listening to a song, some parts flowed smoothly and some parts felt slightly hazy like a good jazz solo. It is a novella, so a shorter story then most I review but was a good quick read.
