Review of Glass Sentence-S.E. Grove

A century after the Great Disruption, mapmaking becomes very important in this world of continents with different time zones.  Sophia comes from a family of explorers & cartologers and lives with her cartologer uncle Shadrack after her explorer parents go missing.  When Shadrack is kidnapped, Sophia must set out into unknown territory to find & rescue him.  Helping her is her new friend, Theo, and danger follows them as they travel across a fractured land to an uncertain future.  I enjoyed the complicated world created by this author but craved a bit more character development.  Also, I was disappointed in the maps; for a book all about maps, some areas traveled by Sophia & Theo aren't shown. The epilogue points to a sequel (maybe the maps will make more sense in the second book).  3 Elves - Recommended for juvenile, teen & adult readers


  1. Wow, I love the sounds of this book. I'm going to order it. :-)

    1. It's a fascinating concept and a highly imaginative world.
