Pleasantly surprised 😀 What an imagination!

The story follows MC Dem, he wakes up and discovers his wife has seemingly taken off with another man in the middle of the night.. but all is not as it seems.
He ends up going on a journey meeting a women in the kings Harem called Chimeline, a holy man and an ex solider called il-Colu who join him along the way to find out what happened.


The author takes commonly used fantasy tropes - group of outcast going on a quest, magical school.. and turns them on

Wow, what a book! I’ve read everything this author has written. The books get better and better. And they never repeat plots. This guy has a stunning mind. What I love most is that his books are intelligent. I love speculative fiction but a lot of it is unsophisticated with more filler than plot. Never happens with Wozniak’s books. He’s so creative and the writing is tight and picturesque. I was on the edge of my seat through the end of this and can’t wait for the next one next in this new serie ...more

“Everything in our creation is built out of infinitesimal building blocks, called the indivisible. There is nothing else, besides the indivisible and the void.” – Master Voider Democryos

The story begins in medias res with Democryos receiving a letter from his wife, explaining that she has left him for another man. Dem, who had believed her to be his one true love, is shocked and hurt and angry. After inspecting her bedroom, he finds out more about her infidelity and some clues as to where she co

This author made a strong impression on me with his previous series of dystopian science fiction novels, written in a literary style, unusually mature and soulful for the genre and presented via a compound eye of viewpoints. I hoped the futuristic ennui and drifting melancholy would percolate through into this next project as, I think, trying another genre is like changing the subject but the way you write is part of you and harder to abandon. Wozniak has a style that comes from within and doesn ...more

Joel R. Dennstedt for Readers' Favorite

“A lie is just another form of ownership.”

The science-fiction worlds of D.M. Wozniak are littered with intelligence, creativity, and emotionally-relevant, present-moment details, making them wonderfully satisfying to any reader who craves great writing in his sci-fi and great sci-fi in his stories. It is impossible to discuss/review The Indivisible and The Void without first making these important observations, for the mechanics of serious writing must be m

Entering the medieval-like world of DM Wozniak’s The Indivisible and the Void, I was immediately drawn into the protagonists’ quest to discover the whereabouts and the reason his beautiful young wife left him. With the creative type of magic dubbed voidance, Master Voider Democryos embarks on his Journey, which is reminiscent of Dorothy’s travels in the Wizard of Oz. However, Dem is joined by an assassin who is a member of the King’s Harem, an effulgent, who introduces the requisite religious as ...more
InD'tale Magazine
An adventure that combines fantasy, religion, and a bit of sci-fi, “The Indivisible and the Void” is reminiscent of “Ender’s Game” and “Wizard’s First Rule” in that it takes a powerful character and makes them face truths about their power and their choices and actions that they don’t expect.

Read full review in the 2019 May issue of InD'tale Magazine.

A quest for justice . . . or revenge?

“The fundamental notion which any voider’s power relies upon is this: Everything in our creation is built out of infinitesimal building blocks, called the indivisible. There is nothing else, besides the indivisible and the void.”— Master Voider Democryos [Dem}

Dem leads the college that trains voiders to manage their power of voidstones and to use it wisely. Lady Marine, his beautiful former student, then his wife, leaves him for another mysterious unknown voi

So I was really pleasantly surprised by this one! The blurb isn’t too descriptive or intriguing, and I have to say I was a bit hesitant about the quality of the novel when I first started it. My suspicions seemed to be confirmed in the first half of the book, but then it started picking up and heading in an unexpected direction.

In this book we follow Democryos, a teacher and master voider at a prestigious university for voidance. His character is particularly interesting because we get to see th

In this enthralling series opener from Wozniak, the Master Voider Democryos leaves the comfort of his royal adobe after his wife leaves him for a mysterious stranger. Under the rule of the corrupt ruler King Andrej X, voiders and effulgents find it hard to see eye to eye because of the former’s faith in reason and the latter’s blind worshiping of an unknown supreme power. But circumstances bring the Master Voider Dem and the Effulgent Blythe together. Accompanied by unexpected allies on the way, ...more

This book was received as an ARC from D.M. Wozniak in exchange for an honest review. Opinions and thoughts expressed in this review are completely my own.

What was once a quest o use magic for good, turns into a quest for survival and for the future. The Indivisible and the void tells the story of Democryos and his students at the citadel who later finds out that his wife left him for a mysterious stranger, he finds himself in a bind that for him is very tough to get out of. Risking it all, he go

The indivisible and the void is a dark new fantasy about Master Voider Democryos (DEM) who is searching for his wife and works for King Andrej X, training individuals in using voidstones to manipulate matter in an indivisible realm. His student and wife leaves him for another mysterious voider and suffering from the loss he sets out to confront her.

Great descriptions, fantastic characters and enough plots and subplots to keep it all intriguing. There magic, adventure and a little bit of romance.

I gave this book 120 pages before I DNFed it, but I can't continue slugging through this anymore :( It's not badly written per se. It's just that the protagonist is so self-absorbed and so self-righteous that he is unlikable. The way he treats others shows just how little he cares about anyone but himself.

Marine interests him only as his wife. When she runs away, he only considers how that act hurts him and his reputation. He never even considers the reasons behind her decision. If fact, it see

"Like how a child in the womb must be to an expectant father -- priceless, yet unshaped. A paradox of the unknown and of certainty."

I was pleasantly surprised with Wozniak's The Indivisible and the Void. The tale opens with Master Voider Dem's discovery that his wife has left him for a mysterious gentlemen, and thus, Dem starts out on an epic quest to find her and figure out what the what happened. He picks up a cast of characters along the way, including an unnamed effulgent (aka The Religious

This is a talented author. Much smarter people than I have reviewed this so I'll just say I enjoyed the crisp writing and interesting plot very much. Recommended! Looking forward to his future work.

I really appreciate the advanced copy for review!!

I just couldn't get into this book. I didn't care much about the characters, the world, or the magic. The start didn't really draw me in.

I still am giving the book three stars because I did skim to the end and there are some nice twists, etc., in the book. The author has a great imagination, it just didn't pull me in.

Thanks Netgalley for a free e-ARC.
