Bibliomancer by Frances Evelyn

Emily Brewster is an angel. Ask anyone she reads to at the hospice. So when she’s arrested for murder, it should be easy to clear her name. There’s only one problem. She thinks she might be guilty.

This was such a lovely adventure.

I did have difficulty getting through Book 1, the shifting timelines and change of characters left me spinning. Once I reached Book 2, however, I was entranced by the story and unable to put it down.

The characters were very well fleshed out and believable. The situations that they find themselves in – Lauren with her relationships, Emily with her new found power – are realistic in their humanity and heartbreak.

Although Emily’s naivety was hard for me to overcome in the beginning, it did get better toward the end, and I became enraptured with her story and the power that she seems to hold. I loved the interactions between her and her boss, Dominic. He is such an interesting character, that I’m somewhat sad we didn’t get to know him more.

This book is a fantastic journey into the wonders of literature. I loved that there are mentions of many great novels, and some excerpts from them as well. The power that a good story has over a person is a mighty thing, and should not be taken lightly.

Thank you so much to the author for providing me with an advanced readers copy of this novel for free. I am leaving this review voluntarily.

Frances Evelyn writes fantasy novels set in the real world. She was born in Coventry and now lives in Rutland with her husband and two sons, who are – for the moment – too old for stories and magic. She writes well-rounded characters, convincing dialogue and compelling plots with just a light dusting of magic.
