A few spelling errors did pull me out of the reading experience. I will say I really like the cover. It captures the fantastical element without being overly literal or cheesy.
The story moved quickly and had fun elements that were nods to some of my most beloved, classic children’s adventures. I think those alone will make this something that both adults, YA readers, and even children will enjoy. The amount of twists and turns, and side changes, made this a real fun story.
I found Karina to be absolutely darling, a bit awkward, but that just added to her charm. She was a perfect heroine to navigate an adventure where you always have to question things, people, and motives. I loved not knowing who was good, bad, or fell into a gray area and adored so many of the secondary characters-especially the witch.
A wonderfully put-together tale, Karina's Silver Shoes throws the reader smack-dab in the middle of Karina's tumultuous life. This is a girl whose attention has been piqued by a pair of silver shoes. A girl who knows nothing about the parallel dimension that exists alongside her world. She's innocent and quite naive, though she's headstrong and decisive when she needs to be. She often finds herself in situations that test her mettle, those of which also make her question what she must do in order to survive.
The author has created such a complex world. One that mimics the real world, to some extent. She vividly paints the environments the characters find themselves in, allowing the reader to further imagine everything they see, touch, and feel along the way. Though the quest the characters embark on is full of so much adversity, the characters are willing to see things through to the very end. Their desire to set all wrongs to right drives them do what they think is best for themselves and those they love. A truly immersive read, this is a book that stays on your mind long after you've read it.
At first, it was really slow, confusing and getting nowhere. I was so confused because I knew what was happening or was going to happen but I don't know why it is happening. Furthermore, the author threw in so many new elements to this story without explanation so really you have to read along to eventually grasp where this story is going. So yes the beginning was truly hard to move forward in but I managed to get through then I started to enjoy Karina's adventures in Whyland.
It turned out that this story was about more than the silver shoes. You found out about the lost family connections, rebellions and magic. Whyland is a very interesting kingdom and seems to have a rich history that I wouldn't mind reading about.
I started to care for the characters(which, again, took me a while for me to understand relationships and their characteristics). Karina was nice, smart and a little too accepting. I mean, who just travels to a strange land without knowing anything about itso quickly. Despite that, I like her. She tries to do her best to make everyone safe and happy. Another thing I loved was that Karina is adventurous and knows that Whyland won't be the last exciting place she'll visit.
Denise Marques Leitao wrote this story very dreamlike and with full of adventure. She wrote about friendship, bravery and badass women. Loved it all.
Overall, this story of the Silver Shoes was just a intro for readers to an even more interesting story about the kingdom. There was a really good lesson that we will always have adventures and just because one ends, it just means that our next adventure will begin.
I received an advanced copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
