Praise for Shattering the Ley:

“Palmatier kicks off an epic fantasy series with this complex tale set in a world where wonders are accomplished by manipulating the magical energy of ley lines…. Palmatier lets the story build slowly, introducing a sprawling cast and fascinating setting, before explosively upsetting the status quo.” —Publishers Weekly
“Palmatier takes familiar ideas of ley lines and magic wielders but gives them fresh life in this rich fantasy world.” —Library Journal
“Palmatier exploits an active imagination to good effect, with characters who develop along with the story…with plenty of tension and excitement. Fantasy regulars looking for a fresh series with real bite should find it worth a try.” —Kirkus
Intricate worldbuilding, engaging and complex characters, and a fresh sharp take on magic and politics. Shattering The Ley proves that Joshua Palmatier is definitely a key new voice in original fantasy.” —Kari Sperring, author of Living with Ghosts
Shattering the Ley, the terrific new fantasy from Joshua Palmatier, is built of equal parts innocence, politics, and treachery. It features a highly original magic system, and may well be the only fantasy ever written where some of the most exciting scenes take place in a power plant. I couldn’t put it down.” —S. C. Butler, author of Reiffen’s Choice
Shattering the Ley stands apart from the majority of second-world fantasy by having a distinctly modern cast to its worldbuilding.” —
“There’s a lot happening, constantly driving the plot forward, and the political intrigue and ideological conflicts between the clashing factions keep things fresh and engaging.” —Bibliosanctum
“Palmatier brilliantly shatters genre conventions…. An innovative fantasy novel with a very modern feel…. For readers who are willing to tackle a more challenging fantasy, without clear heroes and obvious conflicts, Shattering the Ley is an excellent read.” —SFRevu
