The Weaverworld review for today

"This book reminded me of several of my favorites I read growing up... The Chronicles of Narnia, Alice in Wonderland, A Wrinkle in Time, and of course, Harry Potter. It was amusing that the book even paid homage to them in brief mention, which I thought was nice. Fantasy, young children, magic and danger are always a winning combination for me, and this book was no different. I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish and would recommend it to anyone who wants a nice, clean read."  (5 Stars) Karen Matthews (GoodReads, Barnes&Noble, LibraryThing)

The "777" Challenge

I have been challenged by @TheWriteGroup on Twitter to post 7 lines from the 7th page of the book I'm currently working on. As it happens these few words do convey quite a bit about the plot of the sequel to "Grimsnipe's Revenge":

           “I’ve got it!” said the voice on the other end.

            It was Simon. For a moment Jack actually thought his friend might be referring to the lost amulet but then realized that was impossible. Simon didn’t even know his grandmother’s necklace was missing.

            “Got what?” asked Jack.

            “The answer to the riddle. About how to get back to Weaverworld.”

Today's review

"Weaverworld: Grimsnipe's Revenge" is an enchanting and magical read that will appeal to adults and children alike. While the concept itself is not necessarily a new one, it is presented in a fresh way that makes the story unpredictable and interesting. Recommended for fans of fantasy and for ages 12 and up. Five stars!"  Book Princess Sophia (GoodReads, LibraryThing, Barnes&Noble)
