Overview

Ossard has fallen.

The wealthy city state of Ossard has fallen amidst blood, rioting and flames. Through the chaotic aftermath, Juvela leads the hopeful to safety within a set of mysterious ruins, but are they already claimed?

Whilst leading them, the divine addiction is taking root within her, something she's triggered in her flight from doomed Ossard. The deep hunger of soul feeding has overwhelmed and enslaved every god it has touched; how can she, only newly into her own godhood, possibly beat it? And if she can't, what of the divine war she was born to trigger?

Yet hope remains...

Ossard's Hope follows the unique tale first begun in The Fall of Ossard.

Meet the Author

 

Colin Taber was born in Australia in 1970 and announced his intention to be a writer at the innocent age of 6. His father, an accountant, provided some cautious advice, suggesting that life might be easier if his son pursued a more predictable vocation.
Colin didn't listen.
Over the past twenty years Colin's had over a hundred magazine articles published, notably in Australian Realms Magazine. In 2009 his first novel, The Fall of Ossard, was released to open his coming of age dark fantasy series, The Ossard Trilogy. The second installment, Ossard's Hope, followed in 2011 and was supported by a national book signing tour. Currently Colin is working on the final book in that trilogy, Lae Ossard, and his new series The United States of Vinland.
Colin has done many things over the years, from working in bookshops to event management, small press publishing, landscape design and even tree farming. All he really wants to do, though, is to get back to his oak grove and be left to write.
Thankfully, with an enthusiastic and growing readership, that day is coming. He currently haunts the west coast city of Perth.

Story continues with unique twists and turns. Great character moments. On to book 3.

Excellent storytelling. The backstory seems to get richer as time goes on and we learn of this world. It feels like the end of time, yet there is still hope and struggle and perhaps a light at the end of the way.

Continues the story, picking up a heartbeat after The Fall of Ossard. Yet again, just as in the first book, the story is layered and just gets deeper.

A new generation of author. The second book in the Ossard Trilogy follows Juvela and the followers she gained during the Fall of Ossard as they search for a place they can survive the trouble that is sure to be following. Sef continues to play an important role, this time he is more of his own character rather than an extension of Juvela. There is a lot of character and plot development that occurs in this book, but I would have liked a little more action. This book seems to really be building a lot of suspense for what promises to be an absolutely epic resolution to the trilogy. There are several things going on that could affect the entire world as well as some smaller scale things that will impact primarily the main characters and I am curious to see how things work out. Colin Taber is one of a new generation of writers who could very well be the future of fantasy. He still has some room to grow, but his potential is extremely impressive.
