Imagine a world in eternal darkness. A world where skeletal beasts lurk in the forest. Where the women are missing, and the men are in need of salvation…

In the West-English town of Little Wolf Green, Scott’s bookshop is about to close down. Convinced the bookshop holds the key to her mother’s identity, sixteen year old Anya Piddling vows to save Scott’s, whatever the cost.
When four books of magic and myth take the world by storm, Anya begins a journey to discover the truth about the author, known only as the Weaver. Followed closely by her friends, and one surly, bitter ex-boyfriend, Anya soon realises a whole new world awaits: a world gone very wrong, with maddening whispers in the forest, magical winged Kings and a dragon-boy that understands her, inside and out. But this world needs a saviour… and everyone is looking at her.


I had a little trouble to be in the story at first, don’t ask me why, I have no idea, but once I made history, I couldn’t stop.

Anya will try to save the bookstore where she works, for that she goes in search of lost or at least well-hidden books, with Stephanie, Tim and Michael her ex-boyfriend. They will find themselves in a world totally different from their own, with creatures that can be as beautiful as they are horrible.

In this world, Anya is the chosen one, she must save this world from the dark side, she will be helped of course, by her friends and also by new friends. She will have to learn to fight and she will also try to save Lorcan, a dragon boy, to whom she will become attached.

I liked Anya, she is a young girl who has been abandoned by her mother, who does not know her father and who lives in a foster home. The bookstore is the only place that ties her to her mother and she doesn’t want to see her in the wrong hands.

I liked Stéphanie and Tim, the latter is very intelligent and above all they are nice and interesting. Without them, Anya would have had a hard time moving forward in her adventure.

Michael on the other hand, that’s another story, this man is horrible, he blames Anya for breaking up with him, he follows her, he has a little oppressive side that I don’t like.

Lorcan is a dragon-man, he’s being held prisoner but he has a connection with Anya, they’ll get closer. There is also Theone, the king of this world, who wants to save his people, the women have all been killed, the children too, except for Theone’s son.

I liked the story and I can’t wait to read more to find out what world they will land in.

Quick word: An exciting book adventure.


J’ai eu un peu de mal à rentrer dans l’histoire au début, ne me demandez pas pourquoi, je n’en ai aucune idée mais une fois rentrée dans l’histoire, je n’ai pas pu m’arrêter.

Anya va essayer de sauver la librairie dans laquelle elle travaille, pour cela elle part à la recherche de livres perdus ou du moins bien cachés, avec Stéphanie, Tim et Michael son ex petit ami. Ils vont se retrouver dans un monde totalement différent du leur, avec des créatures qui peuvent être aussi belles qu’horribles.

Dans ce monde, Anya est l’élue, elle doit sauver ce monde du côté sombre, elle sera aidée bien sûr, par ses amis et aussi par de nouveaux amis. Elle va devoir apprendre à se battre et elle essaiera aussi de sauver Lorcan, un garçon dragon, à qui elle va s’attacher.

J’ai bien aimé Anya, c’est une jeune fille qui a été abandonnée par sa mère, qui ne connait pas son père et qui vit dans un foyer. La librairie est le seul endroit qui la lie à sa mère et elle ne veut pas la voir entre de mauvaises mains.

J’ai bien aimé Stéphanie et Tim, ce dernier est très intelligent et surtout ils sont gentils et intéressants. Sans eux, Anya aurait eu beaucoup de mal à avancer dans son aventure.

Michael par contre, c’est une autre histoire, cet homme est horripilant, il en veut à Anya d’avoir rompu avec lui, il la suit, il a un petit côté oppresseur que je n’aime pas.

Lorcan est un homme-dragon, il est retenu prisonnier mais il a un lien avec Anya, ils vont se rapprocher. Il y a aussi Theone, le roi de ce monde, qui veut sauver son peuple, les femmes ont toutes été tuées, les enfants aussi, à l’exception du fils de Théone.

J’ai bien aimé l’histoire et j’ai hâte de lire la suite afin de savoir dans quel monde ils vont atterrir.

En bref : Une aventure livresque passionnante.
