One thought on “A World Apart

  1. Bob Milne

    When diving into a new fantasy saga, I generally look for four things 1 A solid, subtle sense of world building2 An inventive, yet plausible, system of magic3 A well rounded cast of characters4 Narrative development, as opposed to info dumpingI was pleasantly surprised to find that A World Apart fulfilled all four requirements David M Brown has crafted a winning fantasy here, one that is dark and gritty, but not completely bereft of a sense of adventure Pirate tales are often tricky, at best, bu [...]

    Excellent It isn t the kind of book I would normally read but I wanted to give it a go and I m glad I did It was excellent from cover to cover I enjoyed David s first book Fezariu s Epiphany but this was even better.

  3. Jason

    A World Apart is a superbly woven fantasy narrative It centers on the story of three friends, Demetrius, Eleyna, and Halcyon These three friends share their dreams when young only to have life take them on voyages they could never have imagined It is a story of love and friendship The pirate ship, the Aeonian, is so cool with ten cannons and an eclectic crew It terrorizes all of Elenchera There is magic at the edge of the world, which you get to stick your hand into along with the crew of the Ae [...]

    This is my second encounter with the Elencheran Chronicles, having read Fezariu s Epiphany last year The series is set in the same world and features the same places and races but as far as I could see there was no interaction between the characters in the two books I found this a bit unusual but it actually works well.In A World Apart we meet Demetrius and his family and friends, from Doves Meadow While his father is a gentle shepherd Demetrius has a famed soldier for a grandfather, and under G [...]

    This is Demetrius story, the story of his life The story of the boy born of a sheppard and a pirate Now in prison for the crimes he s committed, he retells his story Life, love, battles and heart breaking decisions unfold before our eyes A World Apart contains an intense and complicated plot and at close to 800 pages long it can definitely not be considered easy reading, but so worth the investment I wholly enjoyed this book from start to finish I did find the dialog a bit structured, loosing th [...]

    The thing I absolutely LOVED about this book was the world building There were so many details without the bog down affect of info dumps It was sprinkled throughout the book in such a way that I was able to easily keep up without my brain cramping.This world is AMAZING Not because it s really original, though I think it is, but because Mr Brown captured it so well It just comes off as being really crisp I love, love, LOVE that As soon as I was done, I wanted to immediately pick it up and read it [...]

  8. Judy & Marianne from Long and Short Reviews

    Originally posted at longandshortreviews boSo wow this was pretty amazing From start to finish, it s just epic lavish, full of description and history Reminded me of the fantasies I grew up on thirty years ago.I admit to being a bit surprised that, aside from a short beginning with Demetrius in his old age, the book spends quite a bit of time on his grandfather, and then his father before Demetrius is even born I understand that the author wanted to give us some background, but it really slowed [...]

    A world apart is an excellent book It is a story that covers four generations who grew up in Doves Meadow The majority of the story though, is about three friends, Demetrius, Eleyna and Halcyon As kids they form their own gang and challenge each other s skills As teenagers Demetrius and Eleyna have discovered they love each other but cannot find the courage to tell each other Due to miscommunication and misunderstanding, Eleyna agrees to marry Halcyon The choices they make change the course of t [...]

    unexpectedly good so far very traditional, once upon a time there was a boy etc and with lots of detail so not for the impatient, but the author is a very good storyteller so farI finished the novel and I am of two minds of it great storytelling to the end that kept me turning the pages, but the world building comes up unconvincing those 20000 years of same are really hard to take as human history tends to move much faster , and the story itself is a a bit meh and pointless.Overall the author ha [...]

  12. Ryan Snyder

    What stuck out I really like how the focus of the story changed from character to character throughout the beginning of the story The first few chapters were solely about Demetrius s grandfather up until his son was born Then the story followed both the grandfather and the father After Demetrius is born, the story focuses on all three of them The story then focuses soley on Demetrius throughout his childhood When he meets Halcyon and Elyna, the story includes them as well After that the story al [...]
