Order of Earth by Jennifer Cornet
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Talk about a bad tattoo. The author takes a simple outing and turns it into an imaginative chase with a highly effective plot and character driven scenes. As with most fantasy books these days, I was worried this was going to have a cliffhanger ending which gave me no clue as to how things end for Onyx. Thankfully, it wasn't that way. The ending is spooky enough for the reader to form their own conclusions while there is some closure for the main character.
It had just the right amount of action and drama, entwined with fantasy and science fiction. Good ingredients for a good book, and the cover goes hand in hand with the title of the series which is 'Elements of Ink.'
What caught me most offguard was when Onyx was arguing with Philip about the all things he had done TO her instead of FOR her and her outburst causes him to be thrown against a car, it was cool and creepy at the same time. If only there was a similar method to handle all domestic abuse like that.
Would I recommend this read? Sure, if you are the pedantic kind of reader who is easily bothered by spacing and paragraph breaks, you will find that these are not always consistent in the book but I must stress that these were minor and did not distract my attention from the story.
Offensive content?: Based on language and settings, I would recommend this book for anyone aged 13 and above.
