Authors/Publishers Book Description/Synopsis
Mujar do not use their powers for good or evil, they simply exist, immortal and apparently purposeless. The mounted warriors are known as the Black Riders, but no one knows where they come from or why they seem bent on exterminating every man, woman and child. Talsy uses her father’s knowledge to trap the Mujar with gold, which has an odd effect on them. Her father intends to throw him in a Pit, from which he will be unable to escape.
Talsy does not believe the Mujar deserves such a fate, so she frees him and begs him to take her with him on his journey. He agrees, and they set off across Shamarese, continuing his quest to find an old hermit’s lost son. There is far more at stake than Talsy realizes, however, and she has innocently stumbled upon the last free Mujar, who has the power to decide the fate of her race
What Do I Think?
I got this book on my kindle free of charge from Amazon.co.uk, there were no reviews about it so I thought why not try it what did I have to lose only a bit of my time and anyway if you don’t try new books by new/unknown authors then you are soon going to run out of books to read.
As it was it turned out to be a really good read a bit slow at the start however it soon became clear that I was reading a well woven story from a new up and coming story-weaver, T. C. Southwell has woven this story in such a way that you can actually see the story play out in your mind that’s what you would call descriptive writing.
As I have said this is the first time I have read any thing from this author but as there is another 3 books in this series I will be reading more of her books in the future.
Do not miss out on this book its free you have nothing to lose only time!
