Overview

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 realises, however, and she has innocently stumbled upon the last free Mujar, who has the power to decide the fate of her race…

    A good fantacy with some religiouse undertones

    I was looking for a book my teenagers would like..Now that i have read it, I'm going for book 2. I was a little slow going in the beginning, but I got drawn in.

    So disappointed

    This book is really nicely written and the ideas so original. I was really disappointed that the author took the easy way out using blatant Christian imagery (be saved and you can eat luscious fruit from rainbow butterfly creatures!) with more black/white concepts (human unworthiness, the universality of greed and hate). The author is clearly capable of more-this book would have shined if the humans in it had as much variety as the plant life. Also, the inability of the sole female character to think her way out of a hole in the ground, or seemingly do anything interesting other than fall for unavailable men, made me want to throw my nook out the window. More CS Lewis, less pentacostal would have done this book a world of good. Spirituality is much more complicated than black devil monsters eating souls.

    Incredible begining!

    This is the first part of a quartet for the Broken World series, and it's amazing. The pace is well set, the characters and world building and extremely well crafted and believable, even the perfect Mujar. I can hardly wait to see what happens next, as it ends on a well done cliffhanger.

    I also suggest continuing to watch the author, if this novel is any indication of their work. :)

    Fair warning

    This is a great start to a good series, which currently has four books in it (the author hints at more to come). The characters are complex and imperfect, and interesting to watch grow and change across the series. Some change more than others, and not all of the changes are necessarily good ones. Be forewarned, however, that there is NOT a HEA for the main characters at the end of the series, so if you can't handle that, don't start reading. Although well written overall, I am still upset by what happens at the end of the series (although plenty of foreshadowing should have warned me!). I can only hope that in a future book, there can be a good ending for the one character who most deserved it. (can you say "wish" TC?). I would ignore the criticism that talks about religious overtones....really did not think that was an integral theme unless the reader made it so.

    Really good but...

    Good development of the Mujar character but the meaning is sometimes wague. I really enjoyed it for the most part, but the author took off in some odd directions at times, that were unnecessary to the story. Rainbow creatures?

    Torn...

    The storyline is well paced and involved. Whimiscal even in some places. It had my full attention until the religious overtones became overwhelming. Plus, this is an echo of something else... I cant place it at the moment.

    great book

    Wonderful book but only the first is available. I guess the others are available at a bookstore. Because of this, it just leaves you hanging at a really good part

    Amazing

    It really blows my mind that TC Southwell is not more renown. She is an incredibly prolific writer. All her books I have read to date are fantastic. I catch myself wanting to reread them just to get back in with the characters. They are hard to put down so plan on setting aside some time in your schedule for some serious reading. The first book in all the series are free so in case you decide this is not for you, no big loss.

    I just finished the series a few days ago. I am an avid reader,

    I just finished the series a few days ago. I am an avid reader, and most tales don't stay with me, so that usually I can pick up the same book several years later and the story is relatively fresh. This series has stayed with me these past few days, and I think that, though I will read it again, it will have stayed with me. The characters are well thought out, and consistent with themselves. The story echos our human tendency to take our world for granted, The most memberable character is the "Muhar" , he is like nothing you have ever seen before, like a Buddha with power of the elements, with a mission. Quite a story!

    Very intersting....

    This book places a whole new twist on a world that could easily relate to our own. It has some slow parts, but the rest really make up for it.
