3.0 out of 5 stars So what is in the cabinet?, December 5, 2011
This review is from: The Cabinet of Earths (Hardcover)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I wish I could give this book more stars as the concept is nice. It's just too slow, too repetitive, and the real story doesn't get going until at least half way into the book. Still, it does have its charms.

Maya's mother has always wanted to go to Paris. A lucky opportunity to do just that lands in the family's lap. No one can say no, given the mother's recent battle with cancer. She deserves to have her dreams come true.

Still we've all heard the good ol' saying -- if something is too good to be true... Well how good is a random out of the blue offer to have your whole family moved to Paris, expenses paid, and apartment arranged for you, etc etc.? Yup you guessed it, there is something fishy going on...

The Paris offer definitely wasn't all they expected it to be. Yeah there is a job for dad. But then there is the family... And the Cabinet. See, there's a magical cabinet being kept in Paris. A cabinet that holds earth. Still what could possibly be so special about that? Considering all of the interest the ageless people are showing to it, something must be special about that old thing. Yup there's a whole group of people who seem to be the wrong age. And what about all of the salamanders that Maya is seeing on doors (which seem to move when they see her)? Or the strange people that are invisible but not really -- ghostlike, really?

Maya makes it her mission to find out. After all, solving these mysteries, well they could help her figure out how to help her mother who seems to feeling a bit unwell again.

I won't spoil any of it but I will say, this is a complete story though it's obvious the author has more planned for at least some of these characters.
