All in all, definitely worth the fairly short time investment, and I will look forward to the next book.
The authors' world is well built and different from any other medieval fantasy book I've yet read (not that I've read so many fantasy novels, you understand). Twists seem to be interdimensional faultlines, where some totally wrong portion of another universe encroaches on the story world. Everything about a Twist is wrong, from the noise it makes as it develops to the effects it has on whatever it contacts, with no two Twists being precisely the same. A Twist can turn animals into multi-layered living glass, where anatomists can study innards without killing the subject, or it can turn grass into knives. Or it can kill, in some pretty, well, twisted ways.
Cons: there are errors scattered throughout the manuscript, missing words, taught/taut mixups (for example), and so on. There aren't so many that they dragged me from the story; however, another proofreading pass would catch many of them. It's ruddy hard putting out an indie book and these authors did well, but it seems that one... more... round... is always necessary.
A minor thing, but a table of contents would have been nice.Read more ›
I liked this book, the story held my interest and we see the characters from different areas get woven together without some POOF it happens reason. So if you like the fantasy (sword and sorcery genre) get this book.
Now I will say a few other bits about it. For starters I would like to have a map of the world. Anytime dealing with a world that is not my own. I like to see it. Even if its only a part of the whole world. One thing that puzzled me was the high literacy of most of the people we run across, both male and female which is unusual for the middle ages type setting. And the fact that all of these kingdoms, even the Dark Elf kingdom, all speak the same language. I do have my own fantasy setting in a homebrew RPG world where that is also the case but there is an explanation for it. I would like to have the explanation for the Twisted World as well.
The Twists themselves are intriguing to say the least. Something I might borrow for a RPG game someday. A form of "wild magic" that can cause havoc or be a blessing. Really a neat idea. But they don't seem to be visible, only their affects are visible most of the time. Something to learn more about in future books. Maybe some flashbacks to the old days and when they first happened.
Another point that might be a concern for those unfamiliar with the fantasy/middle ages type settings. Is the use of terms not normally used from our own history. On our own Earth we have Lord, Lady, Chamberlain, Noble, King, and other terms used by their retainers. Within the Twisted World we have Val, Valla, Eron and Abettor. While reading we can determine from the context what these terms mean from our own world.Read more ›
In short: Dusk Harbinger, come for the characters, stay for the story, and finish begging for more.
