Books whisper to Beatrix Alba. But they aren’t the reason she has never fit in. Bullied at home and school, she keeps a secret—a power of violence and darkness.
When the spell that keeps her hidden fails, she’s catapulted into the Zweeshen, a realm where all tales live, and her dream of meeting her favorite characters comes true. But wishes are tricky, and behind its wonder and whimsy, the Zweeshen is under attack. A character is burning bookworlds in pursuit of a weapon to rule both stories and storytellers. To succeed, he needs a riddle in Beatrix’s keeping.
Now he’s hunting her down.
Joining forces with William, a cursed conjurer, Beatrix must face an enemy who knows her every weakness in a realm where witches play with time, Egyptian gods roam, and Regency heroines lead covert operations. And with her darkness as the only weapon, she may have to sacrifice everything to save a world that rejects her.
I got hooked and enthralled the more i dig in this world.
The idea was super appealing with the world of books, and the books whispering back it’s knowledge, absolutely endearing, I think a lot of us will actually want some adventure like that to happen to us.
The characters were very interesting, I bleed for Beatrix throughout the book, while she was constantly tested and discovering herself and the mystery in her life and the new world she went to.
At the beginning it was a little slow, but explaining and discovers are like that, not a bad pace either on this point.
The interaction between Bea and Will were delicious and fun, love them so much it was almost epically poetic.
Since she new she was on a world of books, the self consciousness on this was very good it added to the voice and to a little freshness for me.
A very lovely plot with endearing characters, this one is a must to pick up if you like adventures and emotional rollercoasters.
