Sonya M. Black
Author of Flintlock Fantasy & Twisted Fairy Tales
A Sea of Broken Glass
Secrets have a price.
After enduring weeks of torture and being convicted of witchery, Ris escapes, only to discover the Darkness and the Lady are hunting her. They need the magic that sings within her.
Creator of all, the imprisoned Lady needs Ris, her last vessel, to find the Heart of Creation. The Darkness seeks to corrupt the vessel and retain his hold on the Lady, and with it, the world.
Ris finds help from a pair of Paladins of Light who aid her in cleansing the evil taint from the lands. As her power grows, so do her questions. How can she restore balance to the world and free the Lady? Should the Lady be trusted or is she as much at fault for the evil in the world as the Darkness? With powerful demons War, Ruin, and Plague at her heels, Ris struggles to stay alive as she tries to unravel the secrets hidden within her before it's too late.
Secrets that may cost Ris her soul even if she does succeed.
A good read
It was interesting from the very beginning. The story was entertaining and the characters enjoyable.
The style kept me reading and reading.

This is the 1st book I've read written Sonya M. Black; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I will definitely be reading more of her books.
The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

A really great book
Absolutely AMAZING! I don't think I have ever got so worked up about a book before. My emotions were so into the characters and the situations as I read them, that I felt like I was actually in the book!

Sea of Broken Glass is a fun, light, slightly breathless, slightly romantic, fantasy adventure. The prose is often charming, but in places feels under-edited, with some aggravatingly unnecessary repetition. The characters are relatable, and in the case of the men, invariably hot. There are some neat ideas, including a music based magic system. For my taste, the world building was a little too broad and shallow. The stream of cool ideas was relentless, but the implications of those ideas for the broader setting were rarely explored. I had trouble reconciling the quasi-Victorian setting, complete with newspapers, revolvers, and trains (but oddly, no telegraph) with the relatively simple, medieval-high-fantasy politics and attitudes of its inhabitants. Overall, SoBG is probably going to be a lot of fun for people who want fast paced action, but its quite far from the dense thought-provoking material that I normally go for.
I received a free advance review copy of this book in return for an honest review.

I have been trying to put my thoughts into words for the past few attempts at this review but I just can't comprehend what I just read! It's was so damn good!
Firstly the cover is one of the most stunning covers I think I have seen in years. It's a prefect insight into what you are going to be reading.
The characters are all doing something! (Nothing worse than following a character that doesn't do anything) and there own personal storylines and background is shown throughout the whole book so you always feel like the book is going somewhere even if it's insights into the past events and history.
All the characters push the storyline along at some point which I think it very important to an easy reading book!
Now let's talk about the storyline.
4. Seriously intense
The way the magic is described is nothing I have some across before and I think it's a perfect recreation of light and dark forces.
I serious have no words for this book. I have read it twice now and I could easily read it again no problem. Super interesting and fast paced. I want another now please hahaha
