Overview

A Magic Broken is an excellent introduction to Arts of Dark and Light, the series that has been described as "the most promising new series in epic fantasy". Written by Vox Day, the novella is a magical combination of epic fantasy and the spy thriller.

A Magic Broken is a novella set in the world of Selenoth, the epic fantasy world of A Throne of Bones. A fantastic tale of ruthlessness, courage, and deceit, the novella tells the story of Captain Nicolas du Mere, an exile fleeing the death of his rebel lord, and Lodi, son of Dunmorin, a brave dwarf seeking to rescue his fellow dwarves from slavery. Their dangerous paths meet, but in a manner that is anything but predictable.

Translated editions of A Magic Broken are available in Bahasa Indonesia, Brazilian Portuguese, Finnish, and French.

    After seeing the film version of ¿The Hobbit,¿ I was in the mood

    After seeing the film version of “The Hobbit,” I was in the mood for another fantasy story (atypical, because I don’t read that many fantasies) that took place in a story world similar to that of Tolkien’s classics. I didn’t want anything too long, though, either. I have lots of books on my stack.
    I’m glad to say that “A Magic Broken” fit the bill quite nicely. It has been years since I read “Summa Elvetica” so I’d almost forgotten what a solid storyteller Mr. Day (Beale) is. But his ability is quite evident here. There is always just enough intrigue to keep the pages turning. Strong characterization, solid dialog, good plotting—all makes for another fun adventure with elves and dwarves.
    The only niggle I could come up with here was the fact that some of the sentences were quite long and complicated. Real mouthfuls, even if you aren’t reading aloud. Those are few and far between, though. They don’t dispel the enjoyment.
    A word of caution: Much of the narrative takes place in and around a brothel. Nothing explicit, but “A Magic Broken” probably isn’t as good a choice for a bedtime story as the “The Hobbit” would be.
    Tis a well-written tale, though. I’m glad Mr. Day is taking us back into his world.
