Book Review: Calliope Jones and The Forests of Mist by Haylie Machado Hanson

 

Publisher: Books Go Social

Publishing Date: October 2017

ISBN:9781978465923

Genre: Fantasy

Rating: 0.5/5

Publishers Description: When seventeen-year-old Navigator Calliope Jones and her robot World Diver leap into a whirlpool gateway to escape her nemesis, Shadowmancer Nathaniel Ormonde, she has no idea the world she discovers on the other side will be just as deadly as her enemy.

Review: Other than self-absorbed pre-teen escapists and  myopic millennials I really can’t see anyone enjoying the tropes that litter the pages of script. Insta-love, super speshulness, tantrums, narcissistic dialogue, super evilly thingies that glance “menacingly”, lots of “shuddering”, slut shaming and a pet cuddly robot scamp were the mainstays of this novel. Strangely the story line is fantastic. An alternate world diving robot tripping across dimensions of space time. Delete all the characters and follow the sentient robot through time and you have a winner.

So if you drive around looking for potholes to hit, by all means GET THIS!!!

  1. 😀 Maybe I should throw this book at the local council workers because there are too many potholes on our roads!
