Anton Macquarie is not having a very good day.

He woke up with a pounding head. He was late for work. He was attacked by a homeless woman with an apple core. But when his dead boss appears to him as a ghost and tells him to investigate some mysterious fires that have been happening recently, Anton realises there may be more to his missing month than he first suspects. He finds a young girl who knows what he will say before he says it, a perky, pale woman in orange, and a tech nerd who opperates computers with his mind, in the middle of a ransacked underground base.

Pieces fall into place, and they realise that they, and others, were a part of an organisation dedicated to containing the occult and defending the innocent, the Grimmery. The book of wisdom and magic the Grimmery was based on is missing. And, as they do, will they like what they were, or will they choose to keep their new selves? March 15, at am.

Occasionally, to emphasize the moves, the dancers chanted or shouted as well.

RENEGADES l Book Review.

Dancing wove magic. Some ritual dances, or tama, ensured bounty, others averted drought. This tama, Massacre of the Aelfae, recalled history. The Tavaedies only performed it once a year, and as a child, it had been her favorite—until she understood what it was really about. The dance showed a clan of Aelfae, the high faery folk who had lived in the Corn Hills before humans came. High fae were not like low fae, pixies and brownies and sprites and such, but possessed grace and grandeur beyond anything human.

In form they were as tall, or taller, than humans, although more beautiful, a strange, glowing people, with wings like swans. There had once been seven races of high fae, and of them all, the Aelfae had been the most beautiful and powerful and wise. The fake Aelfae took the stage first. They flapped imitation wings. She had to focus. She had to get this right, every move, every detail. She intended to teach herself everything she could from watching them, so when the time came they would invite her to join their secret society. Each Initiate would be asked to dance a tama, and only those with magic would perform it correctly.

The two sides began to mock-fight. The humans began to slaughter the Aelfae. None escaped the humans. While they danced, Dindi reproduced tiny imitation movements with her hands and feet—nothing noticeable to anyone watching her—to help her commit the steps to memory so she could practice them on her own later. At first, when Dindi had started observing the dances with the object of learning them, she had missed most of the steps. Every moon, she noticed more. January 8, at pm.

The author displayed great world building skills, yet the dialogue seemed rather abrupt to me at times.

Often the characters were thinking, making observations or decisions, yet I felt there was little or no indication of how they came to those conclusions. In conjunction with that, there was far more telling than showing which would have benefited the clear direction of the rest of the story line. When I'm reading, it's important for me to be able to relate to the characters in some way, to their personalities, emotions or realities, and through their relation to others in the story I can gain further insight to care about them, want them to succeed or overcome their difficulties.

Miranda, a runaway slave, and Dreibrand, a runaway lieutenant both were challenges for me as I felt their actions and behavior sometimes didn't seem to meet the demands of the situation or reflect what I'd learned of their histories. When the rys kingdom and characters were introduced I found myself wanting more insight into the people themselves. I particularly enjoyed the finely detailed settings in which the author placed their characters and scenes. The narrative really flowed, and there was good pacing, there was always something new happening.

I really wanted to like this book, as epic and high fantasy is one of my favorite genres, I just think this could really have benefited from streamlining too much extra information and focusing on the main character's roles, as the the secondary ones were more outstanding for me. There are three books which followed in the series: The Goddess Queen, Book 2, Judgement Rising, Book 3, and The Borderlands of Power, Book 4, I would be certain the author added to her characters so that they matched their very believable and well drawn environments.

Dreibrand decides to take control of his own destiny and plunges into the Wilderness alone. She makes a daring escape with her two children in tow. In the woods, Miranda and Dreibrand are thrown together — each relying on the other to make it through the wilds only to find a much greater danger unknown to the rest of the world awaits them on the other side.

Can Miranda and Driebrand work together to survive the Wilderness? Will they be able to overcome the evil sorceress before she destroys their homelands and makes all of mankind kneel before her? A thorough read through by a beta reader would probably take care of these issues. Character Development: Shan, the Rys sorcerer, is a creature with great power and must learn to control himself and do the right thing. As much as Shan believes that he is strong enough to fight the evil Rys, Onja, he still struggles with the doubts and disbelief of his own supporters.

Union of Renegades: The Rys Chronicles Book I

Falbe has done a remarkable job creating a brand new world and a race of creatures that would transfer very well to the big screen. The details that she includes and depths that she is able to plumb are impressive. At times, I did feel as if the book slowed down to a crawl. If she were to shorten the book, maybe thin it out a bit, the storyline would move a bit faster. Continuity: No issues with continuity. Romance, adventure, magic, action! Sep 22, Steven Turner rated it really liked it. It truly has the beginnings of a masterpiece in the epic fantasy genre.

He desires greatly to be included in the party sent Union of Renegades: Book 1 of the Rys Chronicles is a wonderful debut book by Tracy Falbe. He desires greatly to be included in the party sent to explore the unknown area called The Wilderness. He believes this to be his best chance at the fame and prestige associated with the conquering of the unknown place.

He is ordered by Kwan to accompany the chattel and plunder back to Atrophane. He is angered and goaded into making several poor decisions which result in his running away. During this time he meets an unlikely companion in Miranda and her children. She remedies this situation and then flees, where she meets Dreibrand.

Through a series of heart wrenching situations they meet Queen Onja of the Rys and then ally themselves with Shan, a Rys who plans to challenge Onja to the throne. The creation of the Rys culture and history is well thought out and detailed in a wonderful way. The characters are well written and you find yourself really connecting with them.

There is just enough magic from the most powerful Rys Onja and Shan that kind of puts you in awe of them but not so much that it become mundane and common. This is a different world that is easy to find yourself lost in. You want to find out more. You want to experience more. There are and have been many great fantasy writers and Tracy Falbe is well on her way to having her name mentioned with all of them. If you are a fantasy junkie like me this one must be on your to be read list.

When Onja steals Miranda's children and leaves her to freeze to death on a glacier, Shan rises to action. Together with Dreibrand, they rescue Miranda. Shan plans his rebellion and the three set out to convince the leaders of other Rys tribes to join them in rebellion against Onja.

This book was a very pleasant surprise, gripping me from its first few chapters. The three dimensional characters were intriguing and believable. Thrust into impossible situations, their personalities developed as the story evolved, soliciting sympathy from the reader for their individual plights.

Tracy Falbe has created a credible fantasy world filled with conflict and danger. The story was easy to follow and most enjoyable. The author's lovely writing style allowed the story to unfold seamlessly and at a good pace. As I got further into the story, I could not help but feel as if I was deeply involved with the characters and their plight.

Union of Renegades is the first book in the Rys Chronicles. I read all of it. It took me a month. Every word was worth it! The story starts off with an interesting premise; that of warrior-general Dreibrand, of the conquering Atrophane army. He yearns to explore the Wilderness, an exotic and unknown land to the West. But he is of a family cast into disrepute, and has to work hard to win the favour of Hordemaster Kwan, his superior. The other main character was Miranda.

I found her story strangely and unexpectedly compelling; beaten and oppressed by her petty, but physically intimidating, partner who is intent on using her to put coins in his pocket. The beginning of the story certainly piqued my interest, and had enough elements to prod my curiosity. After having been unable to stop reading this well-crafted and weaved story with multiple character viewpoints, I was really looking forward to some action. The build-up was great and certainly intriguing, but I wanted to be rewarded. And alas, I was. But unfortunately the reader feels they must read the next book to learn more about the characters, which made this technique a double-edged sword.

There were a few spelling and grammatical mistakes in this book, which intensified just before the middle, I think, but they did ease up for the second half of the story. Overall this story is a pleasant world to be immersed in, and a thoroughly enjoyable read. As it happens, this isn't it for me. Now this isn't a "bad" book. It has a lot of good qualities.

The world is fairly interesting, if simple humans in the east meet non-humans in the west who are ruled by their ancient and evil queen who has subjugated her own non-human people plus the human tribes on that side of the world. The story is fairly interesting, if a bit slow developing in places. The characters are well developed but more on that. What I didn't care for: The dialogue was a bit flat and uninspired it didn't "feel" realistic. The main problem I had with the book was initially hard to put my finger on.

Eventually I realized what it was I don't mean the characters were described in a stupid way by the author. Throughout the entire book, the major and minor characters repeatedly do dumb things, in dumb ways, for dumb reasons. When they aren't adding 2 and 2 and getting three as their decision-making process, they are simply reacting emotionally.

Honestly, to this reader it increasingly became apparent that there was no one in the book with whom I could even begin to identify or empathize nor was there ever likely to be in any subsequent book. I've heard of "dumbing-down" language, sentence structure, and even plots in order to appeal to certain audiences. In this book, while it may not have been intentional, I felt like the characters themselves were literally "dumbed-down". Jul 08, Grace Krispy rated it liked it. Tracy Falbe has created a magical landscape that comes to life.

The hierarchical structure is fascinating, and I find the dynamics between the people who populate this world quite interesting. There are several different races of people in this book, and I felt like I had a good feel for the spoken and unspoken rules of each culture. I think this author did a great job with description and creation of this world, bu Tracy Falbe has created a magical landscape that comes to life. I think this author did a great job with description and creation of this world, but the dialogue between the individual characters felt flat.

The book is a touch lengthy and builds slowly. It was an interesting read the entire way through, but, by the end, I could hardly remember where we had started. This first book in the Rys Chronicles establishes the world and the battle to be fought, and it sets up expectations for the following book. There is plenty of action and some romance interspersed throughout the tale, and the book prepares the reader for the next adventure in the series. There were a noticeable number of minor typos in my copy of the book. Some sentences and phrases flowed beautifully while others were a little awkward and somewhat ambiguous.

Add in the wonderfully crafted world in contrast to the flat dialogue, and the writing style feels somewhat inconsistent. Overall, the story is very engaging and, typos aside, makes for a very good start to what's sure to be an intriguing fantasy series. If you're a fan of epic fantasy, this book will offer you a glimpse into a riveting world and provide you with the start to what's sure to be an adventure of a lifetime. Oct 05, Robert Wilson rated it it was amazing. I have read all four of Tracy Falbe's "The Rys Chronicals" novels and found them to each be captivating and compelling -- to the point that I neglected my own novel writing, so that I could finish reading hers.

From Falbe's fertile imagination springs a graphically depicted magical world that draws the reader in and refuses to let them go! Most of all, I enjoyed her fantastic characters: as a published author I read a lot of fiction and find that most characters are soon forgotten in the jumble. This is definitely not the case in this series: Falbe's characters were totally beleivable as they exposed their raw feelings and their all-to-human [or Rys] flaws, living though and champoning over many adversities. More than any writer I have recently read, I felt that Falbe's characters became my intimate friends and I was deeply sadened to finally finish the series.

But I am encouraged to see that the first volumen of a new Rys series has just been published. It is alrady on the top of my To Read List! Apr 11, Cathy rated it liked it Shelves: goodreads. I received this book from a Goodreads drawing. I found this book to be very long but well written. It was easy visualizing the scenes, characters, and places. The story is complex with many challenges for the main characters to overcome. The male lead is likable but I found the female counterpart too self centered and selfish when dealing with the fate of the world and the customs of the tribe which has been very hospitable to her.
