    I wrote Burden s Edge, so I m not going to rate it But I will tell you a little bit about what went in to it besides the coffee and the countless scribbled sticky notes and the plot diagrams, that is I m about, oh, fifteen minutes or so prior to hitting the publish button on , so let s see if I can distill eight months of work into these fifteen minutes.I ve been a full time author for just over two years now, having published 847,000 words spread over five books in The Arinthian Line se I wrote Burden s Edge, so I m not going to rate it But I will tell you a little bit about what went in to it besides the coffee and the countless scribbled sticky notes and the plot diagrams, that is I m about, oh, fifteen minutes or so prior to hitting the publish button on , so let s see if I can distill eight months of work into these fifteen minutes.I ve been a full time author for just over two years now, having published 847,000 words spread over five books in The Arinthian Line series Burden s Edge clocked in at 145,000 words, which is about 410 paperback pages at font size 9, with the margins maxed But these are just numbers in a void A frame of reference Context What they don t show, is time.One of the most amazing things to me has always been that I can spend six to ten months on a book and readers blow through it in a few nights That s always messed with me That s eight months of my life, man Gone, just like that.And it s been messing with me in another aspect too I can t write all their stories The characters s, I mean But I ve been asked to People had a lot of beloved characters in The Arinthian Line series But not all of their stories can be told And that s because, again, of time.I suppose a part of this book was my attempt at capturing the finite nature of these moments, these lives But then, it s interesting that these moments and lives can be re lived in the form of a re read.Burden s Edge went in a direction I hadn t at all expected I mean, I had this idea of a renown sixteen year old warlock failing at his duties, but I did not anticipate how it would affect him, or those around him One fateful decision on his and my part led to another, and another, until the whole thing turned into a cascade of causality I sat down with a relatively simple plot, yet as so oft happens, it snowballed into complexity Augum, Bridget and Leera and all the other curious characters led me along, willing me to tell their story And I think I did, at least this portion Whether that story was any good is up to you to judge I m just the author, along for the ride.But I love writing, I truly do, and I think I m one of the luckiest people in the world to be able to do this full time My arena is the keyboard, my antagonist my own imagination Some battles I win, some I lose But what a hell of a war.It s 12 14 a.m I failed in keeping it under 15.Thank you for reading Thank you for supporting my work SeverEDIT During the writing of this series, I was influenced by Rothfuss s Kingkiller series and John Steinbeck s East of Eden You ll most see their influence in the medieval politicsso than the action EDIT II Them damn werds, ah hue hue

    Great concept but horrible MCI was excited by the concept, I even liked the fact it started with a complicated back story However the MC was unbelievable Imaging a WW2 combat veteran coming back after 4 years of brutal combat and worrying that the university professor is being mean, etc and having no political or propel sense just a lot of whining about wanting to do what s right Nazi s move to your town, tell them to be good or they will have to move Crazy implausible actions drive me cr Great concept but horrible MCI was excited by the concept, I even liked the fact it started with a complicated back story However the MC was unbelievable Imaging a WW2 combat veteran coming back after 4 years of brutal combat and worrying that the university professor is being mean, etc and having no political or propel sense just a lot of whining about wanting to do what s right Nazi s move to your town, tell them to be good or they will have to move Crazy implausible actions drive me crazy Made it hard to read

    I thoroughly enjoyed the latest book in Bronny s established world and the first in a new series Moreover, I can see some marked improvements since the first series, particularly in terms of structure and pacing Characterisation of Bridget is much stronger, though I can t stand Leera, who seems like nothing if not a stagnant trope and counter point.Very much looking forward to the next book 4.5 stars.


  7. Mark Mark says:

    70% in and I really want to like this, but the main character is completely inapt and taken by surprise by everything that happens in the book so far I m currently looking into what else to read so this might end up being a DNF.

    This is a story of Augum, a war hero warlock who returns to his magic Academy It had a distinct Harry Potter taste to it, but it certainly stands on its own It is written in a great world and has an intriguing plot, so a good story overall A couple of minor points to grumble over, but nothing much really Well worth picking up.Burden s Edge is the story of Augum and his companions, and their struggle to obtain a normal life following exceptional pasts That past is written in an Arcaner serie This is a story of Augum, a war hero warlock who returns to his magic Academy It had a distinct Harry Potter taste to it, but it certainly stands on its own It is written in a great world and has an intriguing plot, so a good story overall A couple of minor points to grumble over, but nothing much really Well worth picking up.Burden s Edge is the story of Augum and his companions, and their struggle to obtain a normal life following exceptional pasts That past is written in an Arcaner series which I haven t read and didn t know existed , but I got enough of a flavour to follow Burden s Edge.Because large chunks of this are located in a magical Academy, there was a distinct Harry Potter feel to it which is pretty cool But it s also different enough to stand on its own However, because Augum is already a bit of a hero, whereas Harry is a celebrity without having done anything or not knowingly anyway , some of the conflict here is lost Augum doesn t really have anything to proveBut it s still a great story, and something a bit different And in fact, some of the world building here is awesome The whole idea is great, but it is actually the smaller concepts that are nicest magic that sinks into permanence the waywards Really great stuff.The plot was also pretty good, and flowed fairly well In fact, this entire book only spans a few days, but it never felt too laboured perhaps a bit heavyweight in places, but not obstructive And with the plotting comes some great twists I particularly like a scene late in the book where Augum gets hoodwinked, and so do we as readers That s a great series of events.And talking of the ending no spoilers I promise , the magical fight scenes are really well thought out see not giving too much away there They re nicely structured with a realistic edge, and Augum has an advantage over others that s really well considered his magical stamina A pleasure to read.So, is there anything that s not so great Well, I mentioned backstory earlier, and the delivery of that essential back story is a touch blunt in places It would have been nice to see it woven better into the fabric of the story, but not a game changer.The other thing that stuck out a bit was the use of 21st century colloquialism in a world that is pretty medieval It just felt out of place, and therefore snagged when it cropped up It would have been easy to do somethingin keeping, so just worth a small note.But these are minor points really Overall a great story in a well structured fantasy world, and well worth a read But you might want to try the earlier series first

    A great start to the sequel series for The Arinthian Line seires.Well this book could be enjoyed without reading the previous series you would be doing yourself a disservice because there is a lot of context, information, and emotional impact that will be greatly missed without it Unlike the previous series which started out a little awkward in the first quarter of the first book before picking up into a fantastic series this book starts out running It is told from a third person limited pov j A great start to the sequel series for The Arinthian Line seires.Well this book could be enjoyed without reading the previous series you would be doing yourself a disservice because there is a lot of context, information, and emotional impact that will be greatly missed without it Unlike the previous series which started out a little awkward in the first quarter of the first book before picking up into a fantastic series this book starts out running It is told from a third person limited pov just as in the original series There is plenty of action, humor, some romance and adventure to be had here.Where the first book series see the trio of friends constantly on the run and learning on the fly this books sets them in a muchcomplex situation The antagonist are not as clear neither are they re friends The one aspect I enjoyed was the subtlety in the antagonist where in the first series wild story was exciting some of the antagonist were quite obvious as they were always in antagonist mode There s a great deal of intrigued and danger as the heroes step into the roles of responsibility valk dealing with everything that comes from fame and jealousy Sever Bronny is any dressing author and one who has improved greatly each book It does appear as if he s using all his tools they picked up in the first series and smoothly transitioned into this you work I do believe he is a discovery writer which meant first books in the previous series sometimes had a quick change of directions.that is good in most parts but sometimes a little stability just helps I do think that he s balanced out is writing between discovery and plotting.There s not much if the anything really complain about when picking up the story if you read the previous series I almost begin with this book before luckily finding a brief mention in a review alluding to a previous series In truth it really just feels as if this is the next part in an overarching series I do think that if there is one thing that really took away from story is that some of the authors perhaps political views and opinions rose above the story in a way where you can almost see the author looking you Nonetheless the characters were interesting in those aspects of the story if not a little bit cliche in terms of having seeing the twist to a certain marriage proposal and countless other TV shows and fantasy books I do not want to give muchinformation because spoilers LOL.Lastly the story is appropriate for young adults and feels as if it is written for young adults who enjoy fantasy as well as those who simply enjoy a good coming of age story
