After a sorcerer kills her mother, fifteen year old Melantha is asked to help catch him. She wants nothing to do with it, but then she learns one of her classmates is the son of the sorcerer. With her spell-turner powers not yet developed, the mission will be dangerous, but it will be downright deadly if the sorcerer figures out who she is and decides she will follow in her mother’s footsteps.
I enjoyed reading Catching a Sorcerer, a young adult fantasy with interesting characters, some of whom are quirky, which makes it a fun read at times. Melantha is a typical teenager in some ways but it is easy to understand why she’s angry after losing her parents and having to live with an overprotective grandmother.
The story is engaging from the beginning and holds your interest throughout. Sara Walker is good at describing people, creatures, and places. I could picture myself right there with Melantha.
