Welcome to the land of Story, a place where the characters from your books spring off of the page and students can study to perfect their character types. Sounds like a book lover’s dream, doesn’t it? Well, it would be if not for the mysterious circumstances surrounding the Unbinding, an event brought on by Muses who abused their literary powers. Now, with the land under the control of Tale Keepers and the threat of a great Enemy’s return, Story needs a hero.
Enter Una Fairchild, a perfectly ordinary girl from the real world, who suddenly finds herself written into the narrative and in very grave danger. Una, along with hero-in-training Peter Merriweather and talking cat Sam, waste no time getting themselves into grave danger as they delve into the secrets of Story. Most importantly, why has Una been written in, and why is she being pursued by so many different forces?
Storybound is fast-paced and action-packed, and lovers of fantasy will enjoy trying to guess what happens next.
