I was captivated from page one. There is action, adventure and mystery around every sentence. An Indiana Jones like novel where the fate of the world hangs in the hands of a 14 year old girl who's life has been anything but great.
She started with a possesed, mute father and had to care for him from a young age in a basement of a family who despised, but also feared them. Jane forged a secret forbidden relationship with Violet, the daughter of the family she was staying with. Violet was a risk taker and enjoyed sneaking around helping Jane. Little did she know that this friendship would mean helping save the world in the future.
The pressure is on when Jane discovers that the entire universe is depending on her to save it. Every world and every dimension will die if she does not find the keys and restore the manor to it's original state.
She finds the most unlikely accomplis who can barely be trusted but is her only chance of completing her mission and surviving the ever internally changing manor which seems to have a life and mind of it's own.
In searching for the cure for the manor, she discovers the truth about her past and who she really is. Her entire world changes and her future becomes uncertain. She has abillities she doesn't understand and needs to uncover before it's too late.
Gripping, adventurous, fantastical, magical and mysterious. Be prepared to be gripped.
