Shattergrave knights is about two teens on the run with family and friends from the Orwellian Protectorate. Haendler, the author, gets everything right, excels at all aspects of a good fantasy novel. Unique, consistent, clever magic system?
Neither too powerful nor too feeble, it is well implemented and thought out, and gets huge bonus points for being completely original. If Shattergrave Knights reaches the popularity it should, I suspect other authors will imitate the magic system in the future.
Smashwords – The Shattergrave Knights – a book by David Haendler
Well written, exciting plot? The writing flows well, and fails to become awkward at any point. The pacing is also spot on. The overall plot, of the teens attempting to escape, survive, and eventually fight back against the government that harmed them is well executed, and contains enough unique minor details and twists to make it fresh. Jack and Olive Merriwether have just the right mix of minor teenage fallibility, intelligent decision making, and heroic activity.
Unlike many other teen protagonists, they come off as neither too adult, nor too foolish and ignorant. Overall, this is a great story, and really showcases the author's talents. I was surprised that this was his first full-length novel, though after looking him up found out he is a lawyer, and apparently well used to writing. I'd strongly recommend this novel to all fantasy readers.
This is a good read for the price but it could have been so much better. Like so many fantasy stories this is a quest of self discovery and growth. There are some fabulous ideas in the story such as how goblins are born and the world of the Protectorate is neatly developed.
I also enjoyed the way that our heros are not from noble ,true or glorious ancestors but rather from the wrong side. But I do hate it when an emerging new world has references to ours. For example Jack plays poker.
The Shattergrave Knights
Suddenly I am dragged out of this imaginative world into 21st century Earth. Why not just let him play cards. It may be because the two central heros were teenagers but I found the supporting characters much more interesting. Prudence, Zanzibar and Tom Fisk are rough, engaging and memorable, each individually drawn with warts and all. The Timekeepers of Ancra. The Road to Kalbakar. Bullies and Brigands and Wolves, Oh My!
