"I found it impossible to stop reading Map of Plagues from the opening scene in a medieval London plague pit to the final scene in Bath, England so I read the entire book in one sitting. The author is a gifted, highly imaginative storyteller. Her writing is vivid and riveting ..."5 star Amazon review
"These well written characters are compelling, and complex... I loved the adventure, exciting action, magic, and magical creatures ... plenty of extraordinary twists in the plot that kept me turning the pages, and reading until the early morning. Fantastic, I can't wait for the next book!"5 start Amazon review
"This is a truly imaginative series. Some of the characters can walk through maps to other worlds and some can use their blood and skin to draw maps when they have none. Some can bring their drawings to life and some can use water as a weapon. The villians are especially dark. And the conflict between love and duty is beautifully portrayed."5 star Amazon review

"Grabbed me by the throat and wouldn't let me go. Whatever it took, I had to read more, and I did until my eyes crossed last night. Today I finished, and like a shadow, it is still under my skin."5 star Amazon review
A world off the edge of the map ...
In the Mapwalker dark fantasy trilogy, Sienna Farren must discover how to use her Mapwalker ability and work together with the Mapwalker team to defeat the forces of the Borderlands before Earthside is invaded.
Everyone has their own agenda and things they want from their magic and the world.
This time we travel deeper into the Borderlands with a lot of magic, mystery, adventure, wonder and danger. I especially liked the Library of Alexandria, the city beneath the water and the city in the air.
The way the maps keep themselves alive with the Illuminated Cartographer… Dark Fantasy at its best!
Mila was once again the character that I understood best. Sienna stays a little standoffish IMO, though her magic and how it draws her is quite vivid. I like Jari, despite everything, and find myself wondering about her past… Perry is still my favourite character.
This grimdark tale might not be for everyone, but if you like history, magic and maps, you will enjoy this book.
Trigger warnings: slavery, rape, forced pregnancies, genocide, blood sacrifice (including children), thoughts of self-harm/suicide, murder and other atrocities that might be a trigger for some.
