    1. Wonderful, wonderful novella How does Frohock consistently take plot elements that I ve turned my nose up at for years and turn them into something that I love so much Sharp characterization, beautiful worldbuilding with dangerous edges, and just all around amazing writing My one regret is that this isn t two hundred pages longer.


    2. One of my biggest complaints in fantasy and science fiction is the way far too many authors can t seem to let go of the sexism that plagues our reality What I love about Frohock s writing is that she gives me a world I want to see a world of diverse characters who aren t judged by the things that I have to deal with on a day to day basis Not that the characters in The Broken Road don t deal with prejudice and hate The aristocracy have little love for the groties, the physically challenged lowbor [...]


    3. Wow A whole new world and magic created in a novella I enjoyed the chanting magic and use of vibration Then the whole element of the connection of worlds and what darkness is present on the other side and seeping into this world as well.I am looking forward to of this dark fantasy world FULL REVIEW Travys, the prince, and Marc, Travys lowborn noble friend, find a morbid sight of the dead god and the sacrifice with it The nobles have not done as they promised to the lowborn citizens The promise [...]


    4. Sound has melody, cadence, vibration, pitch, tone It is felt as much as heard, even tasted on some level Truly than the sum of its parts.Building on the mystical foundation of sound, Teresa Frohock weaves the magical component of her story around it She created a symbiotic relationship between a person s innate strength and talent and sound, using the latter as the medium to propel a person s abilities and allow them to affect the outside worldE BROKEN ROAD is a story of identity, deception and [...]


    5. Another beautiful story by Teresa Frohock This one had all the beauty of love, and sting of loss, that her other stories have However, it also had a slightly bigger scope, an overall evil of an epic nature, and a broad range of obstacles to encounter, including betrayal.As always, I love her work, and I love this piece.



    6. In an overall picture I liked The Broken Road It has a wonderfully magic construct that allows for a wide and dynamic range of ability depending on the users talents I have always felt magic should not just be about study but innate talent and the abilities therein sustained by a level of talent instead of just grinding away to get better and better Thomas Locke felt that a person s potential would garner them a position in a work place and maybe, be able to work at a level above if not realized [...]


    7. lynnsbooks.wordpress 2014 Just finished reading The Broken Road by Teresa Frohock which is a cunning novella in that it manages to combine urban fantasy and horror and bring to the fore two completely different and fascinating landscapes I loved the idea of this, it just seems to turn things on their head and not follow convention at all.We start the story in a fairly easy to imagine fantasy setting, a sort of mediaeval faux France if you will, where a Prince and his friend have come upon an eff [...]


    8. T Frohock is Teresa Frohock, the author of the well regarded fantasy debut Miserere An Autumn Tale The Broken Road is a novella that belongs to the grimdark genre it is dark and gritty and there is no happily ever after Frohock herself calls it gothic horror, and that description works, too It s good.Travys du Valois is the younger of Queen Heloise s twin sons He is mute, and therefore unable to work the magic inherent in the nobles of his land except by using the voice of another or the sounds [...]



    9. Teresa Frohock is one of the authors whose work I ve been aware of for years, who I chat with on Twitter regularly, whose debut novel Miserere is on my TBR pile even, but whose work I ve never gotten around to reading However, she s often referred to as one of the criminally under read authors of the past few years and many people whose opinion I rate highly love her work Thus, when offered her novella The Broken Road for review, I said yes without hesitation And Frohock s writing is everything [...]


    10. Review from Tenacious Reader tenaciousreader 2014 1I ve been meaning to read something by Teresa Frohock for years, but her books have unfortunately remained in that large and looming list of books I really do want to read, but just haven t managed to yet When I saw she had a new novella coming out, and one that looks to be the start of a new series, I figured this was the perfect chance to finally add her to my authors read list.I love horror, I love fantasy and I always love when the two combi [...]


    11. From what I ve read of her work this, and Miserere An Autumn Tale, which I d strongly recommend , Frohock has a distinct voice, and a gift for creating worlds that feel as if they are under siege by dark forces as much internal as external Characters are under constant threat of betrayal from those around them and from themselves, and friends and lovers may not be what they seem I really enjoyed The Broken Road, and I d like to see set in this world Frohock isn t afraid to put her characters th [...]

    13. Full review here bibliotropic 2014 09 25 th My main complaint is that I wish this story had been longer But I won t hold the fact that it was a novella and not a novel against it If you like dark fantasy and haven t had the pleasure of experiencing Frohock s writing yet, then start with this It gives you a taste of the magic she can work with words, and will leave you craving The Broken Road leaves my hands highly recommended, and certain than ever that Teresa Frohock is an author worth keepin [...]


    14. Full review over at Fantasy Book Critic OVERVIEW ANALYSIS Teresa Frohock is a master of dark stories and creating worlds wherein the horrors aren t quite easily visible but on a closer look we can see the decay within The Broken Road is the first book of the Frayed Empire series wherein the story opens up in the world of Lehbet We are introduced to Prince Travys du Valois, the mute younger son of Queen Heloise, the ruler of the land of Lehbet Travys is conflicted about the current state of affai [...]


    15. I like quality writing but I will confess it is plot that draws me in and on through a book, and The Broken Road certainly delivered in that regard There is conflict and rivalry, prejudice and despair as ignobility and nobility struggle for supremacy in the privileged palaces of the magically gifted chanteuse But the author makes some great leaps of imagination and creativity that set this setting apart from the predictable canvas of epic fantasy This is merely than an unexpected heir fighting [...]


    16. I didn t like this as much as I liked Miserere An Autumn Tale, but it was good Frohock s style seems to include detailed worldbuilding, multiple worlds and mixtures of elements that aren t usually put together, and gothic darkness And just plain weird Flightless white wasps that come out of a bad guy s mouth and act like remote controlled intestines and or mind control devices They did not hit a lot of fantasy novels in 2014 Respect.


    17. For the most part, I really enjoyed this I found the magic system interesting and found myself rooting for Travys from the very beginning The author does a fine job of making him likable and making it easy to sympathize with him and his slight disability Although it does meander a bit near the end and some of the characters were not flesh out very well, I was still immersed in Frohock s world and would be than happy to read a sequel.
