Book Description

Nihlen Draven lives what most would consider the perfect life of royalty. As heir to the throne of the nation of Draven, he has been groomed for his future since birth. But as he approaches adulthood, his heart yearns for the freedom to choose his own destiny.

In the neighboring nation of Rinh, a young thief named Marina does her best to survive the streets of the city with her best friend Cal. When a questionable contact from their past offers them more gold than either of them can imagine for a simple kidnap and ransom of a foreign prince, Marina jumps at the opportunity to extract herself and her friend from the poverty of Rinh.

But as the kidnapping goes sour and Draven falls into the hands of Rinh, a strange ability surfaces in the young prince, and the shadows of a forgotten nation called Askrah leak into the world once more.

In Fracture, Book 1 of the Rift of Askrah series, join Nihlen as he unlocks the secrets of the Eye of Kings and embarks on an epic quest to regain his kingdom.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable epic fantasy with strong characters August 8, 2011
By Wist
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nihlen starts in what I was easily drawn into as the ideal, next to perfect life of a Prince. He has trained and studied hard to be the best he can be and he has a great family. Next to the heavy weight of responsibility that is due to be placed on his shoulders, and having to marry without the fairy tale of a romance, his complaints are few and far between. But just as you fall into his comfortable lifestyle, along comes a thief to mess that all up.

Marina has lived the opposite kind of life. Accustomed to stealing coins and living on the streets with her best friend, Cal, she raises the stakes by taking the Prince for ransom. But her plans are about to be ruined too, when it all turns out to be a rather dangerous setup that nearly gets them all killed. Now they have to run for their lives.

And that is just the start to their problems when Nihlen realizes that the ceremony they kidnapped him from was set to keep his eye of power in check. Now he has to find a way to control his Eye of Kings before he loses his friends, family and kingdom forever to the enemy. But he won't be the only one to discover he has a unique ability.

Rift of Askrah is a lighter, easy to follow epic fantasy. Though it's not heavy on action, it keeps to a quick pace. I thoroughly enjoyed the strong energy between the characters that pulled them all closer together, despite their differences. I look forward to reading the sequel and seeing what lies in store for these heroes in the lands of Elharlia.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful new fantasy series. January 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
An enjoyable, quick fantasy read.

I grew very comfortable with the Prince Nihlen and his life. But all of a sudden, in comes Marina to kidnap him and life spins out of control.

Definitely a fantasy novel worth reading. The characters are electric, they are bonded together despite being very different.

This is part one of a series. I look forward to the continuation of the series and what awaits these characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars good start October 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like this story. About a young man whose life is already scripted. He does not want that ands circumstances make sure it does not. He loses his future, family, and country, and goes on the run. Good start to a story as he tries to reclaim his country. The other main protagonist and her companion join him in his quest where they fight for survival against magic, swords, and arrows.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly written April 17, 2013
By OhPun
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really have nothing at all to say about the story itself since I did not get past the first few pages. The book starts out by telling, not showing. I suppose this book could be enjoyable if this first draft sort of writing does not annoy you. I got this as a Kindle free edition.
