Release Date: November 5th, 2016
Young up-and-coming author Liz McKinnen has no idea that her life is about to change forever when she comes home from her first book tour. When she’s kidnapped and told by her captors that she has to kill her fantasy book’s antagonist, she thinks that she’s fallen into the hands of crazy, dangerous fans… until her antagonist sends a real, fire-breathing dragon after her.
Liz is quickly initiated into the Immortal Writers, a group of authors from throughout time whose words have given them eternal life, and whose prose is so powerful that it’s brought stories over from the Imagination Field into the Reality Field. As Liz meets authors such as William Shakespeare, JRR Tolkien, Edgar Allan Poe, and Jane Austen, she has to learn how to control magic, fight dragons, and face her own troubled past before her power-hungry villain takes over the world. Will she survive the ultimate battle against the dragon lord whom she created?
MY TAKE ON THIS BOOK
Thank you to Netgalley for providing me a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.
Well, what actually drew me to this book is the plot. It gave me OUAT feels!!! Love books where the characters literally come to life. Liz is a young an upcoming author and she comes back after her first book tour. That night she sees her stalker and later she is kidnapped by her stalker and when she gains her conscious guess who she is greeted by-Shakespeare and her book protagonist, Curtis ( the hot, sexy stalker). She is then told by Shakespeare that her antagonist from her book has also come to life and is planning to take control of the world and she is the only one who can destroy him ( since she wrote the book).
Loved the way the author has portrayed each and every character. There wasn’t even a moment where the story was boring. Just when I thought Liz’s history is a mystery, the author explains it at the right moment. Love the scenes where bets are placed by other authors during Liz’s training session with Curtis. The way Liz has created the antagonist as her alter ego was awesome. Wish the immortal writer’s group actually exists in the real world (who knows it might exist…wishful thinking!!!). The chemistry between Liz and Curtis was sizzling. We also get to read the back story of the antagonist of Liz’s book and his dragons ( was imagining the dragons from HP).
While this book was very entertaining the ending was predictable and the only weapon the antagonist had were the dragons ( wish there were creatures other than dragons in this book). Curtis’s back story wasn’t explained in-detail. Those were the minus points for me in this book.
We also get a sneak peak of the next book in this series with different authors/characters but hoping to see some scenes with Liz and Curtis in the sequel.
This book was a rollercoaster of emotions but it’s worth the ride. If you love books and characters coming to life, this book is definitely for you.
