[[caption-width-right:290:[[CaptainErsatz Malthus the Counselor]] leading Haomane's Allies to war]] ''The Sundering'' is a fantasy duology by JacquelineCarey, better known for her series ''KushielsLegacy''. The two books are ''Banewreaker'' (2004) and ''Godslayer'' (2005).

''The Sundering'' tells a story deliberately very similar to [[Creator/JRRTolkien J.R.R. Tolkien]]'s stories (''TheSilmarillion'' and ''{{The Lord of the Rings}}'', but with the twist that it is told [[SympatheticPOV from the perspective of the "villain" characters]].

It is not a true case of {{Villain Protagonist}}s, though, because the story makes clear that the "evil" characters are really not evil at all, merely misunderstood.
----
'''This series provides examples of:'''

* CaptainErsatz: Nearly every character.
* ChildByRape: Ushahin Dreamspinner.
* DarkIsNotEvil
* DragonAscendant: [[spoiler: Ushahin Dreamspinner takes up Satoris' mantle.]]
* EvilOverlord: Deconstructed.
* HalfHumanHybrid: Ushahin Dreamspinner is the result of a rape of an Ellyl woman by a human man.
* HarmfulHealing: Performed by Satoris on [[spoiler: Ushahin Dreamspinner.]]
* {{Hobbits}}: In contrast to many other elements in this series, the Yarru-yami are strikingly different from Hobbits. Sure they're short and go barefoot, but they are dark-skinned and live in the middle of a desert rather than the idyllic Shire.
* ImmortalProcreationClause: The Ellylon are immortal and their fertility rate is extremely low. This trope could have been averted had Haomane, creator of the Ellylon, accepted the Gift of the Satoris for his children.
* LightIsNotGood
* OurDwarvesAreAllTheSame
* OurElvesAreBetter: Called "Ellylon" (singular "Ellyl") here, but otherwise deliberate clones of Tolkien's Elves.
* OurOrcsAreDifferent: The Fjelltroll are less intelligent than humans, but very loyal, honourable and not [[AlwaysChaoticEvil inherently evil]].
* PhysicalGod: The Seven Shapers are this.
* PiecesOfGod
* {{Sssssnaketalk}}: The dragons Calandor and Calanthrag.
* StartOfDarkness
* SympatheticPOV: The whole premise. Though the main characters do make some pretty stupid (or at least dubious) choices that pretty much doom them from the start.
* WeAreAsMayflies: The Ellylon do not die from old age. As such those somewhat over 1000 years old are still considered young.
* WorldSundering: Happened in the distant past, hence the title.
