Narrator Lauren Fortgang narrates a thrilling steampunk fantasy about magic inks, history, and science. Elsa lives in a fictitious world called Veldana. Along with other "scriptologists," she can literally write things into reality in a worldbook, a book that can alter the clockwork of any world. But when her home is attacked and her mother is abducted, Elsa travels to earth to track down the kidnappers and rescue her mother. Fortgang employs a rapid pace in the narration and gives the main characters appropriate voices. Despite distracting quotations from notable public figures and characters from the story itself that occur in every chapter, Fortgang delivers a riveting listening experience. A debut novel, this historical fantasy suggests a promising series ahead. A.C. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2018]
