~S~ is for Sazed

My Theme for the 2014 A to Z Challenge is: SciFi/Fantasy Characters in Novels

I'll introduce you to a new scifi/fantasy character from the plethora of novels I've read over my lifetime. My goal is to entice those who maybe haven't read much in the genre I write and share why I find these characters so interesting. I hope you'll enjoy taking the ride with me.

~S~ is for Sazed from Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn Trilogy

A thousand years ago evil came to the land. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families and ordinary folk labor as slaves in volcanic ash fields. A troublemaker arrives. A rumored revolt depends on an untrustworthy criminal and a young girl who must master Allomancy, metal magic.

Sazed begins as a minor character in book 1 of this trilogy, but by book 3 his roll is much larger. As a Keeper he collects knowledge of any and all religions to keep them from fading into obscurity. I love Sazed because he is the character that gave me the inspiration to pick up my own proverbial pen and begin writing. It has much to do with what I was going through in my own life at the time, and I'm sure others would not have the same reaction. However, for me Sazed will always hold a very special place as will the author of this series, Brandon Sanderson.

Have you checked out my debut novella?! 

Shine 7: Lost Haven by Sabrina A. Fish is available on Amazon as an e-book. This is my very first published work, so please so some love and check it out! If you like it, please check out the rest of the series written by other contributing authors.

In the near future, a few young women manifest extraordinary abilities called "Shine." Each girl's ability is different. Some develop extraordinary mental abilities. Some become physically strong. Others have powers that defy description. But the world does not embrace these Shines. It fears them.

Camille’s life hasn’t been the same since her parent’s supposed murder suicide. When an intruder ransacks her home and she discovers a mysterious thumb drive hidden in her father’s office, she realizes the unwanted changes in her life are just beginning. Politics and conspiracy, betrayal and abduction. Camille is about to discover that change is inevitable and hiding is not an option.

I love it when a character speaks to me like that.
