Havenstar

He’s way out of her depth with no idea that the magic map she’s inherited might make a difference to the worl. Havenstar has a history a bit of a sad one It was Glenda Larke s writing as Glenda Noramly first novel released in 1999 under the then Virgin books SF imprintIt raced up the chartsgetting to 81 on the general list only to be orphaned and out of print as the publisher implodedThankfully Glenda was made of stern stuff and has gone on to release another 9 novels with on the wayShe decided to re release Havenstar as a self published eBook No longer do fans have to contemplate inflated prices of paperback copies on of which none of the money is seen by Glenda it s now available from a number of digital outletsThe Eight Stabilities are islands of order surrounded by lethal chaos and the order is being swallowed by the unstable The religious leaders of Chantry try to maintain the Stabilities by ordering the necessity of a once in a lifetime pilgrimage across the chaos And in that ever changing world the most important person is a mapmaker who can make a chart of secure pilgrimage routesKeris Kaylen is a mapmaker s daughter When her father is murdered and a mountain disappears Keris is betrayed by her brother Forced to flee into the Unstable she finds her safety is in the hands of a man bonded to the Lord Carasma the Unmakerand her ordered life is turned upside down Her survival will depend on a map and a place called Havenstar but she can t reproduce the map and Havenstar may not even existHavenstar is a debut novel and to be expected there were some sections where I felt characters voice and register were a bit inconsistent That s really nit picking though what is a rather original piece of fantasy writing A strong female character and mapmaker as lead an interesting mix of religion and magic I think Havenstar still stacks up against anything current in fantasy and exceeds uite a few in execution and concept It feels familiar in places a society controlled by the church and its Rule and exotic in others with the concept of the unstable and the unmaking of the world There s enough of a touchstone for a reader of the heirs of Tolkien that you won t feel lost and enough fresh concept to reinvigorate you readingIt s a stand alone book for those with an irrational fear of trilogies or a lack of time and a great introduction to Larke who seems to me to be somewhat of a hidden gem in Australian Fantasy writing circlesIf you are looking for some uality fantasy writing to fill your ereader after Christmas then try it out I don t think you ll be disappointed

All Keris Kaylen ever wanted was to be a mapmaker like her father Instead she finds herself on the run into the r. This is the book that started it all My mum picked up for 99p at some sea side tourist store thinking it was some love in the dust romance Upon realizing it wasn t she handed it to me when I was just a kid not even a teenager yet I shared it with my friends and my original copy disappeared for years because I lent to to someone who lent it to someone else I went to ebay to find another copy and thats where I found out that it wasn t actually in print any due to publishing problems It was ranging from anywhere between 75 150 pounds at the time I managed to swipe a copy for 12 uid through much patienceIt was THE book that started my love for Fantasy books and I can still pick this book up today and fall in love with the pages and characters all over again Whenever people ask what my favorite book is it is the first thing I think of The word is deep engrossing and frightening and the story goes through some unexpected turns The characters are colorful and flawed and I adore each one whether they be the bad guy or the good guy or the guy who can t make up their mind I just love this book to death and don t want to say anything that could spoil the story for anyone curious about reading it

    Sigh Another book with delusions of grandeur A romance story that fancied itself as an epic fantasy Had great concept but poor delivery World had so muh potential but it was glossed over Where detail was appropriate there was none and where it wasn't there was too much The romance didn't make sense The heroine was meh The hero was meh The old blind man was also meh and had a personality pretty uncoordinated with what it was sup
