Summary: To Whom Ever This May Concern;
I wish I could tell you the contents of this book were purely fictional. That I, Adela Arthur, was just a normal sixteen year old from Portland and that dragons, giants, elves and mermaids were just myths. I wish these were legends shared from crazy old grandparents to crazy old grandparents around campfires. After all, that is what I used to believe.
I never would have thought they lived on the other side of our mirrors in a world called Cielieu. But they do…
I never would have thought there were humans, better known as Volsin that lived among them with the ability to create light from a single thought. But there are…
I never would have thought I was one of them… But I am…
I am the last Arthur and I was brought to the human world after a Volsin, filled with greed, began to strip the light from our kind.
The human world was supposed to be a safe haven… but he’s found us and the only way to stop him is to go back to Cielieu and begin training as a student in the Elpida Castle of Light.
Like I said I wish the contents of this book were purely fictional and not my life…
Short Review (**due to the Labor Day holiday, my full review will be posted a couple days after):
Okay, so this isn't the actual review, but I had to write something for you all as part of the tour. As my notice states, my full review will be posted after the Labor Day holiday, since I won't have computer access until Tuesday and I'm writing this on Saturday (I'm still reading!).
But as far as I am in the book so far, I would say that this book definitely needs to be given a chance. It's true that it's based off of Harry Potter, but aren't there A LOT of books out there based on an already existing book? In these cases, for me, if a book is based off another, there needs to be something that sets it apart from the original work, something unique. As long as there is that, the fact that it's based off another book means next to zero to me.
And the fact that I've never read the Harry Potter books, makes Adela Arthur and the Creator's Clock a totally new experience for me. I'm really enjoying this book so far, and like I said, give it a chance! Just because someone else didn't like it doesn't mean that YOU will not.
