the fall of ossard by colin taber review/giveaway partone by alice
Ossard is falling... Growing up in a city of Merchant Princes, Juvela discovers she can see what others can't. The very currents of the celestial are open to her, and that includes the truths they hide: An escalating series of unsolved kidnappings have been haunting the city-state, leaving its shadows pooled deep with innocent blood. Has Juvela been cursed with Witches' Kiss - or perhaps something worse? Yet, more is to come, for not only has she witnessed an abduction, but she will have to endure a role in the victim's ritual death. For Juvela is about to become forsaken, and that's before she learns the real truth of not just the crimes plaguing Ossard's bloody streets, but the wider world: A world at war, and governed by gods whose highest pleasure is to sup on the taste of death.
wow what can i say about this book.
i was lucky enough to get it for review from the author, he told me it would be a different kind of fantasy to what i had read before and boy was he right.
im not normally one to read any book that has anything to do with religon, god and the like, i just dont like them. and when this book started talking about faith and god i nearly put it down and told the author sorry but i cant read it. but i didnt and im glad i didnt.
this book is a blend of fantasy, witchcraft and religion
whos god is in charge, who do you believe, what faction can you trust
i loved the character juvela, she is the main character. it was really interesting to see her grow, is she a witch or something more. what kind of powers does she control.
her bodyguard sef is also an interesting character and i cant wait to read book two to find where that leads.
now im not going to give anything away cus i dont do that in reviews
all i will say is if you like fantasies and want a different kind of fantasy story then this is for you, cannot wait to start book two.
