Escaping from the escalating arguments of her parents, Posy flees to the library, takes a book from the shelf and begins to read. Moments later she discovers she has mysteriously been taken into the story to take the place of the missing Princess.
As I read this book, I discovered the story was so rich I wanted to remember every word, absorb every detail. I was so drawn into this book, I was almost a character myself. As I was drawn into this thought provoking allegory, I was excited to discover I could get tangled up in the plot. – within the plot? Oh the possibilities!
The characters in this book, know they are characters in the story. I thought this was a fresh idea. There are several interesting characters, and at times I couldn’t tell the good guys from the bad guys! However, all the characters had an important role in the story and they each fulfilled that role.
The Prince and Posy journey together on a path few have taken and their destination has a mysterious entrance. I thought Posy demonstrated flexibility and courage. However, she was not old enough for romance. Prince Kyran was a young man who stood up for what he believed in and fought bravely for his beliefs. However, my favorite character was the Author.
There was a forest to explore and if Prince Kyran does travel to the Unknown Land, I plan to go with him.
The cover of this book is so magical and wondrous, I would like to give a big “shout out” to the artist.
I was privileged to receive an ARC ebook from the publisher for an honest review.
