About Steven R. Burke

Growing up in a little town in the great northwest, Steve learned to enjoy the outdoors and all that nature had to offer. The beauty surrounding his home town of Colville Washington inspired his world of Tuwa. Every character in his novels was inspired by characteristics from people he either knew or behavior he observed. His magic is only limited by a person’s capacity and creativity. For over a decade now he has made mountain desert state of Utah his home with his wife and son. Some of his favorite authors are Terry Brooks, J.K. Rowling, Terry Goodkind, J.R.R. Tolkein, and Christopher Paolini.

Review by: Gary Burke on Jan. 16, 2013 :
I was hooked from the very start. This book was worth every penny. I've been disappointed with my last few book purchases, but The Broken Council was worth it.

You open the story with a twist right from the start. You meet a man named General Yukio who is one of my favorite characters in the story. He is a man you can tell holds great power but you don't even fully realize how much until the story evolves.

You will find many of the races typical to a fantasy story, but with for me more style and power. As my title alludes to the battles are on a larger scale in both sheer brute strength and the abilities of magic in this world are truly awesome.

The magic is different for those you meet who use it. Your limitations in your power are directly tied to your imagination, moral character and knowledge. It's nice to see magic being used in a way that really does show forth awesome power. I often have been disappointed when magic seems to have only mundane and limited uses.

It moves at a great pace and I would highly recommend this!!
