The Broken World, Book One, Children of Another God

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!

Authors/Publishers Book Description/Synopsis

There’s a monster running around Dublin, and it’s up to Ava to catch it. The pressure’s on, and she’s becoming as cynical as Peter. But when a demon marks her friend, and a possible threat from England spells war, Ava’s left with a huge choice to make. The lives of one or many.
With a little help, Ava has the chance to win all of her battles… if the darkness doesn’t take her over first.

What Do I Think?

I enjoyed this book just as much as I liked the other 2 books in the series, the action packed plot and the revelations and twists and turns all through the story made for an exciting read, I imagine that the next instalment will be just as good if not better as Claire Farrell develops her main cast of characters more.

Ava is a forceful heroine while she isn’t perfect; she does hold a darkness inside one that desires to break free.

For those who liked the first two books, this book follows on perfectly where the second finished, Eddie uncovers a bit more about himself and we start to see a more of the other characters develop; Esther, Gabe, and of course Peter.

These stories are building into what could become a long and interesting series from a very accomplished weaver of stories.
Get the books and have an enjoyable weekend transported to world and place far away from everyday troubles and woes.

A Review of Taunt (Ava Delaney #2) by John Hugh Glen


Taunt
Taunt by Claire Farrell
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Authors/Publishers Book Description/Synopsis

All Ava wants to do is forget about the vampires, but they won’t leave her alone. Between her failing business, angry landlord, disloyal friends, and vampire stalkers, life is starting to feel pretty stressful. When Ava finally deals with her biggest problem, she is caught up in the chain of events it triggers and taken along a path she can’t escape from.
Ava has to figure out what exactly is her biggest threat: the humans, the vampires, the Council—or her true heritage.

What Do I Think?
This is the sequel to “Thirst (Ava Delaney #1)” Ava is struggling to come to terms with her new life, she has gone from being a near loner to someone who is surrounded by people.
Aware she is becoming more than a vampire or day walker she is unwilling to let her friends know exactly what powers she is developing.

I must say I enjoyed this high-speed story, it is woven by this story-weaver in such a way that you follow its plots, twists and turns effortlessly, and Claire’s creative talent is manifestly magic itself.
This story carries on from where “Thirst (Ava Delaney #1)” left us with all the characters where they should be.

Another winning story from one of my favourite story-weavers, I am already reading book 3 and look forward to more stories from Claire Farrell.
