Welcome to my spot on the blog tour for The Map Maker’s Daughter – Caroline Dunford. Thank you to Zooloos Book Tours for the spot on the tour. Read on for more info and my review!
Sharra’s world is a terrifying place.
Violent seismic ‘Shifts’ and outbreaks of an all-consuming black fire radically alter landscapes on an increasingly frequent basis.
Only the Map Makers can predict where the Shift will fall, and Sharra, daughter to one of the most famous Map Makers, yearns to join their ranks and break a cultural taboo that forbids female cartographers.
Sharra’s father, Lord Milton, is one of the few to challenge the current order, but his shadowy past limits his political reach and his second wife, Lady Ivory, is determined to manipulate him to ensure a privileged future for herself and her daughter, Jayne.
The main obstacle standing in Ivory’s way is Sharra.
WOW! I am blown away by The Map Maker’s Daughter by Caroline Dunford. I honestly haven’t stopped thinking about it since I finished reading it. It is everything I think a fantasy should be and was so inspiring for me. Ahh. Okay, let me actually try to review this.
The world building is so intricate and wonderful. I can’t give too much away, but the map maker idea was really intriguing. I loved how vivid the story was.
The characters were fantastic. Sharra is an awesome main character. I am really hoping there will be more in this series, because I think she could become an even greater heroine than she is now.
I highly recommend this one!
Thank you to Zooloos Book Tours for the review copy and the opportunity to honestly review this book on the blog tour. All opinions are my own and unbiased.
Caroline lives for stories. Reading them. Telling them, Watching them. She can’t get enough of them. She can hypnotise people and she sings well in the shower. She enjoys cooking, but hates housework, and has managed to convince everyone who knows her that she doesn’t understand washing up. So much so that when friends visit some of them do it for her. Fortunately she also has a dishwasher. She always feels she didn’t make enough of her teenage years, and hopes that at least the teenagers in her books do!
