About the Book:
During her final story peddling tour, a tale of treason spills from her hands, threatening the king himself. Tanwen goes from peddler to prey as the king’s guard hunts her down . . . and they’re not known for their mercy. As Tanwen flees for her life, she unearths long-buried secrets and discovers she’s not the only outlaw in the empire. There’s a rebel group of weavers . . . and they’re after her too.
The Story Peddler by Lindsay A. Franklin is the new fantasy series you’ve been waiting for. Imagine your stories coming to life. Oh, to be a storyteller like that would be amazing. This makes the story unique, original, and fun!
Tannie is one of those characters tossed into the unknown. She is independent, having grown up by herself, and isn’t afraid to ask questions about anything that she isn’t familiar with. She is also kind and compassionate. She genuinely cares about everyone around her.
The writing was beautifully written for a young adult novel. There weren’t any short choppy sentences which I enjoyed. The story is filled with adventure, excitement, and non-stop action. This is one of those books that kept me reading late at night because it was impossible to put down.
Sometimes when an author introduces a bunch of different characters at once, it can be confusing. So not the case with this one. Each character is memorable and creates a special place in your heart.
Parents, do keep in mind that although it isn’t glorified and doesn’t actually show anything, there are mentions of a character who drinks ale and flirts with women in the brothel above the tavern. Other than that, it is clean. While it isn’t touched on much, we see characters who believe in “The Creator” and have repented of things they have done in their pasts. I can’t wait to see how the author incorporates this into her next book!
While this a young adult novel, I think anyone of any age would enjoy this. In fact, I can totally picture this as a movie on the big screen. Highly recommended!
