I do wish there had been a little more time spent with the characters. The plot was excellent, but I would have liked more depth with the characters. Some of this is a result of the plot taking place very quickly, over a few days at most--that's not much time to really develop the characters as the action is taking place, so a little more time on the backstory would have helped develop them. Also a few really horrific moments were referenced without being fully explored (rape, forced pregnancy) and taking a little more time there would keep that from feeling like it was being glossed over.
That being said, the book was very quick-paced and a thrill ride, with transparent prose that is there to get you to the next twist as quickly as possible. One hanging plot line in particular has pretty much ensured that I'll read book two.
The writing is clear and fantastical yet causes an uncomfortable feeling that this is a tale of our times, our thinly disguised reality. I loved the magical powers of the characters and their use of them, and I loved the Capulet and Montaque budding love of two people kept apart by borders made only of the human mind. I was by turns horrified for the children in this book, horrified by them. I was seduced by both heroes and villains, even when their facades were torn down.
It was a whirlwind thriller that created a bitter wind swirling around the reader, holding them in place. I do recommend this book, but only if one first clears the schedule to read without stop. Once the reader steps inside this worlds and its “black mirror” there’s no getting out until the author closes the gates.
interesting. She has a way of pulling you and not letting go till the last page and leaving you wanting
The book is a dark fantasy of magic, trust, love and faith in others.
We meet Sienna a young women on the brink of her life. She has just broken up with her boyfriend she
is at a stand still in her life and does not like her job. She just finds out that her grandfather who has left
her something. She goes to a small village where her grandfather had a small map shop. Learning she has
been left the shop and finds that also there is a family secret that she has been protected from. Sienna is
a map walker and also has magical powers that she has not known about. Her fathers family are map walker
that protect the bonders of earth and the outer world.
This story will take you on a magical fast pass ride and leave you wanting more. I had to keep reading to find
out what would happen next. Looking forward to reading more of this series.
The central idea seems to me to be a clever one-- that people called Cartographers with magic in their bloodlines can travel through maps, or bring the fanciful animals decorating old maps to life, or several other interesting magical skills. They work together to defend our Earth against invasion from the inhabitants of a shadow earth. Everything gets very exciting, England and our world are on the line, and a small band has to save the world.
Very J.F. Penn, wouldn't you say? Yes!
Try it, you'll like it!
