Hope you’re all well and have been busy reading.
I was very lucky to get a review copy of Mist and whispers by C M Lucas.
Look how gorgeous the 2 covers are for it.
Imagine a world in eternal darkness. A world where skeletal beasts lurk in the forest. Where the women are missing, and the men are in need of salvation…
In the West-English town of Little Wolf Green, Scott’s bookshop is about to close down. Convinced the bookshop holds the key to her mother’s identity, sixteen year old Anya Piddling vows to save Scott’s, whatever the cost.
When four books of magic and myth take the world by storm, Anya begins a journey to discover the truth about the author, known only as the Weaver. Followed closely by her friends, and one surly, bitter ex-boyfriend, Anya soon realises a whole new world awaits: a world gone very wrong, with maddening whispers in the forest, magical winged Kings and a dragon-boy that understands her, inside and out. But this world needs a saviour… and everyone is looking at her.
I went into this book only knowing that it was about a girl called Anya who believed the answer to who her mother was could be found in a book shop in wales.
I loved how the characters were built up and how the story flowed, there were a few times I got slightly confused and had to go back a page or two but that’s mainly because I forgot the names of certain support characters.
The world they arrive in with its creatures and people were well written and described so well I felt like I was actually there. In fact some of the creatures were described so well they starred in my dreams.
As a whole the book is enjoyable and well written but the story line is fairly complex so I recommend it is read in as few sittings as possible (I read it in 2).
I’d rate this book as 4/5 stars. Definetly one to pick up.
Well I’ll leave you all to your reading as I’ve got the ARC of the third viking assassin book waiting for me to delve in.
let me know what you’re currently reading or if there’s a book you’ve read that you think I should read.
