I have to admit, I’m rapidly becoming a fan of fantasy author Aaron-Michael Hall. I was intrigued by her Rise of Nazil series, which was a complex yet fast-moving “epic fantasy” with great dialog, amazing characters, and lots of twists and turns to the plot. She changed up the pace with the science fiction duology Rites of Heirdron / Orbs of Trenighea which she published under the pen name Newland Moon, and which earned recognition as a IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Read. Her latest novel, Kurintor ...more

This epic fantasy novel is full of diverse and well-realised characters, intriguing worldbuilding, vivid and descriptive writing, as well as fun-to-read dialogue. It tells the tale of one girl’s self-discovery and ‘awakening’. This is just in time for a looming battle with a wayward demon goddess who tricked a god a while back and is still making trouble.​

The girl in question is Nurisha. She’s the adopted daughter of a retired military man-turned-smith, and has been trained by her Da in sword-fi

Kurintor Nyusi is one of the most exciting and refreshing books I've read in a long time. The plot was not the usual fantasy fare, the world not like the usual worlds you find in the genre, and the characters...well, it was the characters that made this tale a pure pleasure to read. The author has created something very unique, and this is sure to be an award-winning story.

Through the eyes of these believable and well-portrayed characters, the reader is treated to a wonderfully enthralling expe

If I needed to use one word to describe Aaron-Michael Hall’s writing in Kurintor Nyusi, I wouldn’t have a hard time thinking of one.

Elegant.

This is not the half-ass work of someone who doesn’t know where their story goes. This is a book written by someone who writes with intention, intelligence, and intense emotion. Nurisha, daughter of Qaaradan San has been trained since she was a child to best any challenge she faces in combat. Physically speaking, she’s a beautiful woman, powerful yet humble

Nurisha San is the adopted daughter of Qaradan San. He has trained her and her best friend Aljosa as warriors, an art she will need in the future. Lately, her birthmark on her wrist has been itching and growing; only a journey to Solluna can give her some of the answers she seeks.
Meanwhile, the remnants of the Kurintor warriors are readying for a battle to defend the Fifth Kingdom. Xavion knows that the mark on his wrist 'twins' him with Nurisha though they have never met. But it is time for the

The story instantly captured my attention and never let it go. The mystery relentlessly pulled me through the pages, and the characters were constantly intriguing. I love stories with strong, independent women and Nurisha did not disappoint.

It was great to read a fantasy novel that has two strong female leads. Protagonist Nurisha has been trained in combat by her father, which comes in handy, when she discovers that she may just hold the key to saving the world from a demon goodness, the antagonist Sokka. Demon God Sokka is determined to lay waste to the mortal world, by defeating The Keepers of Nine and unleashing her army. As a descendent of the magical and powerful Kurinator people, does Nourish have what it takes to stand in So ...more

Aaron-Michael Moon very clearly put some effort into this book. I’ve not heard of this author before I came across this book, but after doing some digging I’ve found she’s got a handful of stories available. I don’t usually dive into high/epic fantasy stories like I did when I was younger, but this author clearly has style and creativity that separates her from most fantasy authors that seem to think Lord of the Rings is a template. The book itself seems to be well-edited, but I will say some c

Aaron-Michael Hall is an award-winning and bestselling author of fantasy novels, and this offering is sure to be no exception. Kurintor Nyusi is brilliantly written, bringing to life a rich imaginary world with such vivid descriptions that the reader feels transported to an entirely different time and place. Though the development of the setting and the story is so full that it feels effortless, what really jumps out of this book are the characters, who are diverse, well-rounded, and captivating ...more

What if you learned you weren’t really who you thought you were, but something more... something much, much more? Aaron-Michael Hall works out that premise in “Kurintor Nyusi: Book 1”—an enthralling Sci-Fi Fantasy read that draws you in from the very start.

This absorbing tale of a young woman, whose impending destiny causes a chain-reaction of suspicion and power-plays among gods, rulers, sorcerers, and men alike, is a remarkable work of fiction that—as Hall’s fans already know—will satisfy even

Kurintor Nyusi was in my opinion was a surprising and very refreshing read. It was not like your usual fantasy read, in fact i think it is a very unique story and well done to the author I was previously unaware of. There are many interesting characters for the reader to get to know and feel engaged with, primarily the powerful and compelling Sokka. After reading this was a Publisher’s Weekly semi-finalist it was no surprise how well-written it was, and the fast pace kept me enthralled from star ...more
