Tallow by Karen Brooks
"Sometimes our intentions, as good as they are, can go horribly wrong when translated into action"
No matter how hard he tried, Tallow was unable to distil his own feelings, his urge to help, for every purpose there is always a price to pay.
Karen Brook’s novel is one that will leave you wanting more but at the same time have you questioning the depths human beings are willing to go to in order to achieve the hidden desire.
The tale of Tallow, a candle maker’s apprentice, and his hidden talents stretches far and beyond the borders of Serenissima. Set in the land of Limen, whispers are heard of a child that will unite and bring back the old magic.
They say that truth is seen through a person’s eyes, but through Tallows eyes, old magic flows that is forbidden and dangerous.
This intriguing tale of love, loss, betrayal, and lies will leave you breathless and have your heart pounding all at the same time. It is addictive and heart-wrenching; all the features of a loving series.
The Curse of the Bond Riders Book 1- Tallow is surely to have you intrigued. If you have never read a fantasy novel, Tallow is the where you should start.
