To sell a book, you need a description on the back. So here’s mine: My name is Fiona Loomis. I was born on August 11, 1977. I am recording this message on the morning of October 13, 1989. Today I am thirteen years old. Not a day older. Not a day younger.
Fiona has been to the magical world of Aquavania where children with of great imagination and courage are invited to make their dreams reality. Aquavania is the place where stories are born.
But there is trouble in paradise. The dreamers creating these worlds are disappearing and a mysterious figure referred to as the Riverman appears to be stealing their souls.
Initially, Alistair believes this fairy tale is Fiona’s way of dealing with real-world trauma. He becomes intent on discovering its source. But he is wrong, and the Riverman is closer to him than he realizes.
Riveting, lyrical, suspenseful and playfully surreal, I highly recommend this book and eagerly look forward to the sequel coming March 2015.
