The Fall of Ossard ´ Brave Innovative Bold Stefen Brazulaitis reviewer and columnist Australian Bookseller and Publisher I stayed up all night Sara Douglass 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 include. This review previously appeared on my blog In The Fall Of Ossard Colin Taber tells the story of Juvela Van Leuwin granddaughter of a woman burnt at the stake for being a witch by the Inuisitor Anton member of the Church of Baimiopia’s Expeditia Puritanica The burning was 20 twenty years ago and it was a milestone in Ossard’s history Since then Ossard has grown wealthy by its merchant princes However now the city is troubled by another problem Child abductions The children simply vanish without a trace and without any witnesses And it’s just the beginningI didn’t know Colin Taber before I decided to read The Fall Of Ossard Now I’m glad that I gave it a try The three adjectives on its cover capture the spirit of the book pretty well “Bold Innovative Brave” The book is easy to read and captivating The very beginning of the story the burning of Juvela’s grandmother promises a fast paced book And it keeps its word With the introduction of Juvela the story slows down but to gather momentum with each turning pageColin Taber’s style in his book reminded me of Patrick Rothfuss’ The Name Of The Wind partly because the story was told in a first person narrative mode And the fact that Ossard is the main setting of the story and the world’s connection with its deities reminded me of Brendon Sanderson’s ElantrisIn The Fall Of Ossard the author paints the picture of a world where the boundary between humanity and divinity is very thin and flexible It is a world where gods can choose to answer the prayers with their blessings It is a world where gods can be mean and vicious; they can have their own agenda and use their followers in a multitude ways This book is a window opened to a world forged by the goddess Life and her husband Death Yet now they’re waging a divine war a war that promises doom for allThe magic system that the author uses has a satisfying complexity Even though we don’t explicitly get explained all the nitty gritty details of spellcasting we know that there are three different branches of magic that exist according to the power source of the caster Mind forbidden Sisterhood Soul priesthoods of the faiths and Heart Cabals of Mages I’m guessing that we will discover about magic in the following booksOne of the aspects of the book that I loved is the existence of the world’s mythology The reader is introduced to some of the deities along the way However the mention of a few other names such as the Gorgoyle God of Gorloth promises to come Further there are some places mentioned that aren’t part of the story yet For example I wonder if we’ll ever know about Bar Mor the mountain city of the giantsIf you’re a fan of maps in fantasy books you’ll be satisfied to know that Colin Taber did a good job with the maps too They include Ossard and the world around the cityAll in all it's an amazing book Colin Taber raises the bar very high in his debut novel The Fall Of Ossard which is the first of a trilogy The second book promises a lot to come in many aspects It will probably be published towards the end of the year The author said that the remaining books were pretty much complete so hopefully there shouldn’t be any delays I for one am looking forward to reading them I can’t wait to hear the rest of the story review ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Colin Taber

Colin Taber ´ 3 summary

Colin Taber ´ 3 summary 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 deat. I got this ebook free as a subscriber to him but after reading his book I want to continue the series and not stop until I've finished The story had me engrossed from the first page The world he created is uniue and creative something I love to see in a world of reused ideas While the land of his world may be barren it is rich in lore and that's something to love about itWould I recommend this to a friend or even a stranger Yes I wholeheartedly would but I'd also let them know of the rape scene as well so they can avoid the book if they might be triggered by it
