There are some exciting scenes, battles and fights and the magic is interesting - there is more to it than at first you realise.
G.R. Matthews, author of The Corin Hayes series
Watkinson has great fun with the world-building and the tropes of epic fantasy. With The Cracked Amulet she writes a series opener that recalls the scope, breadth and darkness of Tad Williams and JV Jones.
Steven Poore, author of The Heir to the North Duology
A wide ranging fantasy tale…bags of imagination on display…strongest in its world building and magic…
Mark Lawrence, author of The Broken Empire Trilogy, The Red Queen’s War Trilogy and The Book of the Ancestor Trilogy
Against a background of failing states, magik and spirits, Coryn and Katleya lose all that they have and must flee all that they know.
Coryn, protected by a cracked amulet, must find his sister and fulfil an oath. Katleya has only her wits and her knives to defend herself.
Desperate to reach a haven where she can learn to use her power fully, Katleya uses her Wealdan to do little other than see the magical Wefan. But she is hunted by those who would use her for terrible purposes of their own.
