    1 thought on “Branding of a Heretic

    1. At 35 pages, Branding of a Heretic isn't a début novel but more of a short story giving us a glimpse into the world that Kal S. Davian has created. As such, I read this in one sitting.I was torn between giving this three stars and four, but I settled for four because of the intriguing conclusion. I won't spoil the tale, but I appreciate the resolution of the problem as it bodes well for future works.The title does exactly what it says on the tin. A scholar called Claradina uncovers a document t [...]

    2. Will the truth really set you free?Claradina Ou'bosa a prestigious and respected scholar of Haiel, was researching history- the war of absolution to be exact, when she discovered a document that contradicted the Sacred Scrolls. Claradina pulled her wings tight against her body, and paced back and forth, trying to make sense of it. She knew that the "Mind" had to be advised of her findings. Something of this magnitude should never be hidden, even if exposing it, could possibly mean the end of lif [...]

    3. Branding of a Heretic is honestly a great novelette. That being said, I did have a few issues with it initially; minor issues that didn't detract from the experience but caused a bit of confusion in the beginning. I felt that while I could picture people as they were described, there was a lot of information being fed in in the short thirty-something pages that can cause one to feel overloaded; like the amount of races, the race names, their personal names. On the other hand, I liked how the aut [...]

    4. After finishing the first chapter of this short I was left indifferent and a little confused. By the conclusion I wanted more. It's clear through descriptions and terminology that the author put a lot of effort into creating his world, but it was difficult to keep up with the plethora of characters and races thrown at me in such a short read. Too many names and descriptions happening at once meant that I wasn't able to burn an image into my mind as to what any one person looked like. On the posi [...]

    5. I liked this story more than I expected. Although I knew it was fantasy, I read through the first couple of pages and liked the draw of the prose. Yes, characters have wings and tails and furry ears and the story is set in a made up, fantastical world. However, it is a very human story that stays true to the plot. The plot itself is a simple retelling of Galileo's downfall. The heroine makes a groundbreaking discovery, excitedly shops it around to her fellow scholars, challenges the powers that [...]

    6. A strange, unearthly worldMany writers create fantasy worlds, but rarely ones so haunting and intriguing as Kal S Davian has imagined in Branding of a Heretic. The characters, despite having unusual and exotic features - wings, tails - fit seamlessly into this world, rather like the daemons in Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials. It seems natural that they are there.We can feel the darkness building from the start, yet the betrayals that take place are still surprising. There is a cliffhanger en [...]

    7. DisclaimerI have received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This was a pretty good read. The characters are fascinating and interesting. The biggest issue that I had with this was the plot. While the plot was simple and straightforward (a document had been found which goes against what everyone believes), I don't think there was enough set up to show this world as a dystopian, where people cannot hold their own beliefs they have to believe what The Mind and everyone else [...]

    8. As it's just a short novella it gives no more than a glimpse in the Nihilian Effect Universe. I read it today in the motning in the commute.The story follows a calm and composed historical scholar Claradina that tries to reveal a recently uncovered document that could change the world forever. As can be guessed not everyone is happy with possible life changing reveal so she has to gain allies.We can't expect a lot to happen throughout 35 pages and we're proved right. There's some twist in the en [...]
