Brokedown Palace is a fantasy novel novel by American writer Steven Brust, the only stand-alone novel set in Dragaera. It was originally published as a paperback original by Ace Books in 1986 and reprinted several times over the next decade. Orb, an imprint of Tor Books, brought the novel back into print in trade paperback in 2006. It is also notable for being set in Fenario, the human-populated portion of that world.

Where the Mountains overlook Faerie, but never go too close, nor stray too far. Where a rock still stands that Fenarr slept on, and turned over to find a sword. Mountains, mountains,. The River has cut a path through on the other side, called the Grimtail Fissure. See the geysers? Some say Fenarr came from there. Why not? Smell the pine trees, and the spruce, where the streams flow with silver, and the silver flows like water. The Forest? Big and dark, as a forest should be, and filled with all that forests should be filled with.

It had been a while since I read Steven, and it took a while to get back into his writing style.

However, his dry humor and understated narrative works for me, as long as I work to follow it.

I found Brokedown Palace to be rather dark and a little less funny that some of his other work. I am also still confused about Brigitta. Possibly because I took about a two month break right in the middle of reading.

That being said, I still very much enjoyed this story. I loved the interactions between the brothers and the complex relationship they shared. The way they each evolved as the story progressed. I especially loved Vilmos and his dedication to his Norska.

I loved that the conflict seemingly revolved around the condition of the palace, but there was really so much more at stake and at risk.

The other characters (Brigitta, Mariska, Sandor, Viktor, Bolk) were at times mystifying, but definitely added depth to the story. I had to learn that I didn't have to understand what was going on when some of these characters said things. I just had to trust that I would understand in the long run.

I find that Steven Brust is by no means an easy read, but I for one think it is worth the work to read - and enjoy!

Brust has played around with a number of writing styles (or techniques), even within books set within the same world as Brokedown Palace. Here, the style leans more towards the fairy tale, and has those tales woven throughout, but Brust’s humor and clean writing continue to shine through.
Braendo
The book is fast-paced and entertaining. It will make more sense to fans of Vlad Taltos and the Grateful Dead, but the book works well on its own merits if you don't get all the references.

I love this story. It reads like half old legend and half modern story. It is lyrical and fascinating in a way I have seen in no other book save perhaps in another work of Brust's called The Gypsy.

I liked the writing style of the story, but it took a bit of reading to get into the world it inhabited. The feeling of the tale was a bit like life, not just as you expect things to happen.

I got the book a long time ago and I loved it. As a person of Hungarian ancestry it was great to find a book with us in mind. Steven Brust is a great writer.

i have been a Fan of Mr. Brust's work for quite some time now, and i have read all the Dragaeran novels.
however, this book is notably different, it looks like a first book (although it is not), it does not involve any of the charachters of the other novels, it does happen in the same world, but it could also be hapenning in a totally different place, as almost nothing of the unique Dragaeran universe is used.
aside from all that the plot is quite weak, and quite slow.

all in all, i would not recomend it..
Imaginative and unique fantasy, like everything by Steven Brust.
