Publisher's Summary

When Anna Marshall is transported from her boring and frustrating life in Ames, Iowa, to the very different world of Erde, she's angry and confused. But she soon finds out that for the first time in her life she's uniquely powerful. In Iowa, Anna was a music teacher and small-time opera singer, but on Erde, her musical ability makes her a big-time sorceress-potentially. First, though, she must figure out how to use her ability before the rulers kill her.


What the Critics Say

A different magic system

I'm so glad this series is finally out on audiobooks. It was my favorite of Mr. Modesitt. Right from the beginning Anna, the unexpected sorceress shows her resilience and strength. I had forgotten what a strong character she is, and how her struggle is still relevant all these years after this book was first published.

The narration was very well done, the pacing and presentation well suited to the story.

Lets hear it again.

What did you love best about The Soprano Sorceress?

The blend between confidence and doubt, strenght and weakness, the wish to get away then the chock of actually doing so.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Soprano Sorceress?

Not sure, there are so many moments in the book that tugs at once heartstrings... Seeing her daughter with the letter beside her with the word Mom.... The first time she sees Secca...

What does Amy Landon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Attention to details through how she says things.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A grand adventure that will curl your toes.

Any additional comments?

In my opinion this is L. E. Modesitt Jr. 's best series. It has balance at the same time as it is Epic. I hope the rest of the books in the series will come out soon with the same narrator since Amy Landon is doing an exelent work.
