Many thanks to Tracy Fenton and Compulsive Readers for my spot on this Blog Tour.

Wow!! The book appealed to the adventure spirit in me. I loved the way it started, slowly unfurling the story of two brothers where Charley had the magical talent of bringing characters to life. Oh my!!

Charley’s amazing talent meant that brother Rob had to help him out when the characters ran amok. One such character was Uriah Heep from David Copperfield, and that was the beginning of this wonderful adventure. And then another person with such a magic Lal talent was discovered. Now it was up to Rob and Charley to save the world.

My first book by author H. G. Perry, I was so delighted to meet all the literary characters. They made my heart dance. The wicked ones made me laugh in glee. They brought a spice to story especially when Uriah Heep escaped and they discovered things and places which were a secret.

Characters were familiar and varied, each found a perfect place in the book to uplift the story. The author had crafted a brilliant tale, so well seamed together that I felt I was on an adventure with these two. I could imagine the scenes easily, and that made the book come alive. The love between the brothers were palpable. A sense of family was embedded in the entire book.

The world around me disappeared, I ran along with Rob and Charley. I interacted with the characters, I got to meet Sherlock Holmes (sorry, Benedict Cumberbatch was all in my mind, he is Sherlock for me always). The writing was electric, it made for an immersive read. There was a joie de vivre in the words, I literally felt happy reading this book.

It was different and fun; it was serious and humorous; it was family and warmth; it had characters old and new; it had adventure and spirit. It captured the child in me, it made the adult sing with a delight that I thought I had lost.

It was simply a wonderful journey!! A magical one!!

I received a free ARC from NetGalley and the publisher, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.

All my reviews can be read here

For his entire life, Charley Sutherland has concealed a magical ability he can’t quite control: he can bring characters from books into the real world. His older brother, Rob — a young lawyer with a normal house, a normal fiancee, and an utterly normal life — hopes that this strange family secret will disappear with disuse, and he will be discharged from his life’s duty of protecting Charley and the real world from each other. But then, literary characters start causing trouble in their city, making threats about destroying the world… and for once, it isn’t Charley’s doing.

There’s someone else who shares his powers. It’s up to Charley and a reluctant Rob to stop them, before these characters tear apart the fabric of reality.
