Synopsis:Unlike her rebellious sister Lucinda, fifteen-year-old Lexa prefers to spend her free time playing video games, fighting the forces of evil with her partner-in-crime Marlon. But when Lucinda steals an invisibility potion from their uncle’s storeroom, she unleashes chaos into their lives. Lexa and Marlon find themselves catapulted into a world far more dangerous than any video game, full of misleading illusions, sinister Conjurors and deadly Fey, and threatened by a man with a grudge known as the Puppeteer. Accompanied only by Lexa’s uncle’s unreliable (and rather dangerous) Chimera, Lexa and Marlon must navigate this world to find Lucinda- before they too fall under the spell of the puppet master…
I found out about Emma Adams from the wonderful world of twitter. I was immediately curious about her book The Puppet Spell and promptly downloaded it on my kindle. The story is aimed at a young audience but I would say that its perfect for those that read enjoy Young Adult novels no matter what age they are.
The Puppet Spell follows twins Lucinda and Lexa’s adventures into a dangerous world full of magic, illusions and the Puppeteer. Emma has developed some great characters. Lucinda and Lexa couldn’t be more different. Marlon, Lexa’s friend who journeys with her, is a lovable character. Uncle Devon is also a fantastic character. Some of the creatures Emma has created are incredibly creative.
Emma Adams has created a wonderfully original fantasy world with some fabulously creepy moments. I think fans of Harry Potter would lap this book up. It’s intriguing and easy to read, and I look forward to reading more from Emma in the future!
