Codecrafter: Review

Author: Erica Sandbothe
Publisher: Erica Sandbothe
Pages: 146


Tagg has come to Tilde for one reason: to become a Codecrafter, a sorcerer who can forge her own magic spells. The road isn't an easy one. Tagg must face infinite loops, ornery students, tricky lang-monsters, and the wrath of a powerful queen.

Above all, she will face what it means to be a Codecrafter.

For the words that Tagg is learning aren't just magical. They are computer science.

Codecrafter is set in a world where spells are software, magic is programmed, and one girl must use all of her skills to outwit an enemy bent on her destruction. (Goodreads)

My Thoughts:

Tagg is a lordsdaughter who goes to Tilde to learn to become a sorcerer. She thought she would be completely safe in Tilde but quickly realizes that it's going to be much more difficult than she originally thought. Maybe she shouldn't have even come to Tilde. Her father is deemed a traitor by the queen so she is made fun of, teased, and there are people out to get her, maybe even kill her. She must worry about her safety and the safety of her father. She has a mentor who doesn't really treat her that great but she still does everything she can to learn spells and condecrafting to become a great sorcerer. Tagg is challenged to overcome her enemies with the little she has learned. But her will is very strong and she's not giving up without a fight.

This is a great story for kids and I'm sure my stepson is going to enjoy it so I'm excited to hear his thoughts on it. This book takes you  into a world full of magic based on math and programming, sorcerers, and unusual creatures/monsters. I really liked Tagg. She was a sharp girl who learned quickly and she wasn't afraid to take matters into her own hands if need be. I really enjoyed this one and I'm sure your kids will love it whether they are boys or girls. Check it out!
