Her parents’ marriage is falling apart. Fifteen-year-old Posy feels her life is falling apart with it. Retreating to an old library down the street, she selects a mysterious book in a secluded corner and is magically drawn into its story...

Posy finds herself in a kingdom ruled by a cruel and manipulative king and queen who have attempted to usurp the role that belongs only to the Author of their story. The princess has fled and the kingdom is teetering toward rebellion. Posy is joined by the Prince Kyran as they fight with the characters of the story against their slavery to the Plot.

Posy and the prince search beyond the borders of the story for the runaway princess. They visit mysterious places, face horrifying monsters, and fight fierce battles. They make both friends and enemies as their journey leads them into many dangers. But some of the worst dangers, Posy soon finds, lie deep within her own heart. 

Now Posy must find the courage and forgiveness needed to save the story and, most important, heal the heartache she knew in her own world.

The plot was original and fascinating. I don’t think I’ve ever read a book quite like it, and I really enjoyed it. This book had many intriguing characters- ones whose goals and ambitions were often a mystery. Who was trustworthy, and who wasn’t? I’ve read other books like this where that plot device was annoying, but it was handled well here and I really liked it.

The only thing I didn’t care for was the romance, since it involved a few kisses and seemed almost out of place in regards to everything in the rest of the book.

Still, overall, this was one I enjoyed much more than I was expecting to! It had a lot of different types of characters -owls, mermaids, centaurs- and normally that type of fantasy can confuse me, but this book was easy for me to read, and that’s something I definitely appreciated! Recommended to anyone who’s looking for a clean fantasy book with allegorical meanings.

Rating: 8

I received this book for free from the author in exchange for my honest review.
