This kind of ruins the whole book.
Don’t read on unless you’ve read The Sundered.
Seriously. I suggest you don’t do it.
Yes, this is the second warning. I’m so serious. If you haven’t read The Sundered, stop now.
Motherwater is the mother of the Powerful but broken creatures, enslaved to keep mankind alive in a flooded world. [themedy_alertbox icon="warning-sign" colour="red" font_awesome_att="" custom_colour=""] This wiki page is divided into TWO sections: Non-spoilers for The Sundered and spoilers for AFTER The Sundered. If you don't want spoilers for The Sundered, only read down to the halfway point (don't worry, I'll make it clear). If you're already read the.... Whether she is one herself is a matter of debate.
She is sentient, without question, but her pattern of thought and emotions are so far removed from anything human that it’s nearly impossible to communicate with her. Constant contact with her children, the Sundered Ones, is absolute. She’s one with them, and yet distinct, at the same time.
She was ticked off when the humans landed on her world, though she didn’t have a reason to be just yet. It was mother-bear instinct, responding to a new thing around her offspring. Killing humans on contact simply made sense.
The Sundered Ones prevented deaths initially, for the record. It wasn’t until Harry Iskinder's grandfather. Also not a nice guy. turned on A mysterious device which can, according to legend, return the Earth to its pre-flood state, removing the Black Water. No one has been able to find it for centuries. But Harry believes it's real, and will risk his very life to track that thing down.[themedy_alertbox icon="" colour="red" font_awesome_att="" custom_colour=""]From this point on, SPOILER WARNING. If you have not read The... that they stopped trying to protect mortals from Motherwater’s wrathful touch.
Whether she will ever allow Harry Iskinder is the main character in the book, The Sundered. He's nineteen years old and not very tall, to his great lament. However, he's in great shape. His diet is Sundered-designed, lean protein and a perfect balance of nutrition. He's been active since childhood, both in the Academy and out on the Black Water from the age of fourteen. His skin... to touch her without trying to kill him is still undecided. Gorish is a Sundered One, and one of the primary characters of The Sundered. For whatever awesome reason, Gorish inspires a LOT of fanart. Check it out before you leave! [themedy_alertbox icon="" colour="red" font_awesome_att="" custom_colour=""] From this point on, you are entering serious spoiler territory.[/themedy_alertbox] Gorish is one of the last to be born from Motherwater. As such, he doesn't... hopes so; Aakesh is a Sundered One, and the first-created offspring of the sentient planet Motherwater. [themedy_alertbox icon="warning-sign" colour="red" font_awesome_att="" custom_colour=""]Major Spoilers Alert[/themedy_alertbox] Current Book(s): The Sundered Name Meaning “Lord of the Sky” in Sanskrit. The name is actually something of a joke with two parts. 1. Sundered Ones mimic what they see. When baby Aakesh first came into the world, he... hopes so. A Sundered One who resembles a lizard-man and has a major hate-on for Harry Iskinder. [themedy_alertbox icon="" colour="red" font_awesome_att="" custom_colour=""] Spoilers, yo. Don't read on unless you've already read The Sundered.[/themedy_alertbox] A Sundered One, considered "second born," which means Motherwater spat him out during Aakesh's first (and happily one of his last) temper-tantrums. The Second-born Sundered love violence, but -... just wants Harry dead, so that doesn’t count. Regardless, if that forgiveness ever does come, it’s going to be a long, long time from now.
The most important thing to know is this: Motherwater, unlike an ordinary planet, is not limited to her orbit around her sun.
She can move.
And she is.
Let’s just say she intends to guarantee nothing like the invasion of The Hope and its human enemies ever happens again. ( And oh, hey, look – there’s a bunch of short stories about it!)
