Magic is seeping back into our world, via a portal. Humans gifted with magical powers are rounded up and put into controlled areas. Seventeen year old Tania is among them. Along with her friend, Logan, a not-so-human companion, she learns to survive in this new world. She has prophetic dreams, of a white woman stealing children from her world. Thus begins the tale of Keys and Needles.
What I liked: Michelle has made an extensive world for her characters to play in. Her magic has sound principles and I love how they work. What felt like a created world of her own, turned into a blend of faerie tales and Nordic mysticism. Very intriguing and left me wanting to know more. The story has a nice resolution (with a good twist to bring us into book two.
What I didn't like: The first part of the book is set firmly in a human-centric world. We learn more about Tania's ability to survive with her mark and how she is treated by normal people. Once we go beyond the portal, into the faerie realm, things move very fast. I would have liked to spend more time in this realm, instead of the massive build up in the real world.
Bottom Line: if you like books with creative magical systems and an in-depth world to play in, then you'll love Keys and Needles.
I actually love the book. So why four stars?
The first chapter just doesn't live up to the quality of the rest of the book. Speaking as a writer myself, I know first chapters (first paragraphs, first sentences...) are *hard*. So I persevered and read on, and I'm very glad I did.
It's a fun, sometimes thought-provoking book that takes some unexpected twists while weaving a consistent story line. Very enjoyable and (once past the first chapter) absolutely held my attention. The characters were complex enough to be interesting and human enough to be sympathetic (even though not all of them are actually *human*!).
CAN'T WAIT for the next installment!
(Disclaimer: I received a free review copy of this book, but I legit loved it so much I bought a copy.)
I *finally* finished reading Wordslip! It's. So. Exciting. And Wonderful! And kick arse! And Magical! Woot! Loved it when you were learning to use your powers. Can hardly wait for the next installment! Thank you for writing this!
