That being said, I loved the story. This was so creative that I kept thinking, " I love this metaphorical world...I want some of what LB's smoking!" Just kidding, but it was a thought!
The story starts out feeling a little like a C.S. Lewis, then it tumbles along into romance and begins to feel like other LB books. The theme is similar, but the storyline and imagery is all quite new
Kane is such an adorable secondary character, that he steals the show at times. Some of the other characters are not as developed, but then their story seems to end at this sequel so I can accept that. I was lost a bit over the antagonist and who or what it is. I picked up on the hints that were being dropped, like the puzzle pieces that Kane assembled, we are being spoon fed this enemy's identity. It works in a lot of ways and doesn't work (for me) in others.
This book is written very well grammatically, too. Minimal errors- found more in FSOG 😀.
I also love the metaphorical world that was created in this book- very sharp. Fictional character world and and author clashes with it, and the fight and internal wars within. Too cool.
Lucian draws his reader into his world of fantasy using characters who are not perfect but flawed, in their own way.
Poe, is a work of fiction, he knows his existence is driven by what his Scribbler pens in the real world. His life is about the change when he is given a task by those that rule Octava.
Kane, a young boy from Octava, becomes part of Poe's task and together they must enter the real world and attempt to set things right.
Poe must find his Scribbler and complete his task before being caught by those who would wish to stop him.
What ensues is a wonderful adventure, full of mystery, intrigue and discovery. An addictive tale that I could not put down until I finished it.
It does end with the words 'To Be Continued' and I hope that Lucian does continue it because his fantasy writing is superb.
Definitely 5***** Mr Bane.
The plot of this book was genius in my opinion. Charlotte is a very well known author (scribbler) whose hero, Jeremiah Poe, comes to life and knocks on her door. She created him to be her perfect man...a brawny, good looking, hero who has NO interest in romance. What happens to him when he and his vitally important little sidekick, Kane, comes to the realm of his scribbler and discovers he has human qualities that he does not understand?
There were parts in this book where I laughed out loud... when Poe discovered his...well, I'll leave that for you to read and enjoy for yourself!
What the Scribbler doesn't know is that Poe protects the provinces of the genres (horror, romance, paranormal etc). He comes to her world to save his world, Octava. However, there is someone, or something trying to stop them from saving it.
There were so many twists and turns and deep meaning behind the plot and behind each word and each character in this book...I would use the word majestic to describe it. The words towards the end of the book projected a crystal clear picture of a miraculous scene. I would love to see what it would look like in a movie...however, I still don't think it would be as beautiful in a movie than it was in words.
This is definitely a book that I would recommend and I can NOT wait until the 2nd book comes out!
What is it that makes The Scribbler Guardian so unique? First, the setting of Octava is so fantastical, or is it really? Hmmmm, just one of the many questions from the story that kept me wondering. Next, the characters, they are so tangible. No, wait! This is fiction, they can't be real! Well, maybe just the Scribbler? But I love Poe and Kane and they felt real to me! Poe and his Scribbler, well they.........didn't they? Another uncertainty. Ok, so the plot, that should be easy to pin down and describe, right? Which plot though? There were several of them carefully woven throughout the story that just kept adding more layers and depth and more inquiry. I love a book that keeps me off-balance!
So, to sum it up, The Scribbler Guardian is most definitely a creative masterpiece that kept me totally engaged in living the story alongside these amazing characters, taking their unpredictable journey with them, and loving every minute of it! Well played Mr. Bane! Thanks for sharing your creative genius with us again!
