Originally reviewed at Bookwraiths Reviews. Free novelette from Marc Turner, author of When the Heavens Fall.A group of bandits find themselves turned from predators into prey when their intended victim turns out to be a Guardian of Erin Elal. Fleeing through the dark forest, the survivors desperately take refuge in an abandoned fort that seems to promise safety, but quickly the bandit Safiya wonders if they might have made a terrible mistake in coming here.Moody setting. Suspenseful. Great char [...]
A ten minute short story about luckless bandit Safiya dealing with more than she can handle when her crew tries to rob an ex-Guardian, who himself, is on a hunting mission. Story itself serves as a glance to one of Lurker's side missions, it doesn't necessarily add anything to main story nor characterization, but I think that wasn't author's intention in the first place. It simply is there. Exists. Free, for anyone interested to read more of Turner's world.
Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes ~4 months till the next book!~Earlier this year I read the debut and first book in a new fantasy series by Marc Turner. It was only after I almost finished the book that I realized how much I'd come to like it. You can find my thoughts and review here: urlphantomhiveoklikes/p .Together with the book was released this short story set in the same universe. I decided to wait some time to read it so as to make the waiting between the first and second book [...]
3 stars.A good short story. Not great as an introduction to the world or the characters from 'When The Heaven Falls', but I liked the writing style and I will definitely read the book.
So I recently finished reading 'Dragon Hunters', and I've realised I'm now kind of hooked on Marc Turner's 'Chronicles of the Exile'. To postpone the inevitable withdrawal symptoms - at least until book 3 comes out in September! - I thought I'd check out this short story, which is available for free on the author's website as well as Tor.Short and exciting, 'Devil' tells the story of Safiya, an unlucky bandit with a mysterious past, and her attempts to evade the terrifyingly powerful individual [...]
I am always wary of reading short "tie-in" stories set in the world of previously published book sagas. They are often not as good, or they require reading the saga to really appreciate them. In this case, I was proven wrong. I did enjoy the story without not knowing anything about Turner's "Haven's Fall" universe.This is the story of Safiya and her fellow bandits. They thought they had found an easy mark, but they quickly learned that they picked the worst possible victim. Now Luker Essendar, o [...]
While this short didn't expose a lot about Turner's world, it showed me enough (by the end) to gain my interest for the series. I look forward to reading When The Heavens Fall and seeing where these ideas progress, and maybe where they originated.I think readers who are already familiar with the books may find this one more entertainingI'm guessing here.
Read this ahead of the two main novels which I picked up a while ago.It's a short story with a nice sense of place and person; the action is a bit vague but the magic seems interesting, as far as that goes.Not a lot to it, but it is a free short story so I suppose there doesn't need to be.
Short but nice
