Put a map at the start of a book, and we know an adventure is going to follow. This magnificent collection encompasses not only the maps that appear in their books but also the many maps that have inspired them, the sketches that they used while writing, and others that simply sparked their curiosity. Philip Pullman recounts the experience of drawing a map as he set out on one of his early novels, The Tin Princess. Robert Macfarlane reflects on the cartophilia that has informed his evocative nature writing, which was set off by Robert Louis Stevenson and his map of Treasure Island.
Joanne Harris tells of her fascination with Norse maps of the universe. Reif Larsen writes about our dependence on GPS and the impulse to map our experience. Daniel Reeve describes drawing maps and charts for The Hobbit film trilogy. Piers Torday discusses the challenge of drawing a fictional map. This exquisitely crafted and illustrated atlas explores these and so many more of the maps writers create and are inspired by—some real, some imagined—in both words and images.
Amid a cornucopia of full-color images, we find here maps of the world as envisaged in medieval times, as well as maps of adventure, sci-fi and fantasy, nursery rhymes, literary classics, and collectible comics. The new spellbinding fantasy adventure from the award-winning author of The Last Wild trilogy. They have survived the Blitz, but when Simon, Patricia, Evelyn and Larry step through a mysterious library door, it is the beginning of their most dangerous adventure yet.
They discover the magical world of Folio, where an enchanted kingdom of fairy knights, bears and tree gods is under threat from a sinister robot army. What they discover will change not just their own lives, but the fate of the world, for ever …. Kay Harker is heading home for the school holidays.

Recently orphaned, he knows this Christmas will be different but nothing could prepare him for the journey that lies ahead. On the train he meets an old magician, Cole Hawlings, who charges Kay with safeguarding a wondrous device that has time-travelling powers. It was a bit slow to start, but really picked up as the author broke out some new lore for Faerun. Did the lore make sense? No, but at least it was cool. It was neat reading new things about voidstone, the Faerzress, and the fall of the drow, as well as the differences between different drow bloodlines, and I'm always glad when kira show up.
It is a bit odd that the author keeps having Hallistra and her brother just miss each other.
Storm of the Dead
Nov 20, Tony rated it really liked it. I am rarely let down by forgotten realms books, especially the R. Salvatore books and this continuation of his storylines. I thoroughly enjoyed this.
The characters are interesting and the storylines are well paced and interesting. I cant wait to finish the trilogy. Dec 16, Efren Lawag rated it really liked it. Another great work of high fantasy from Lisa Smedman. Ending was a bit anticlimactic, but it's nonetheless a great romp nonetheless. No familiarity with the Forgotten Realms lore is necessary, although I'm guess those familiar with said lore would probably appreciate the book even further.
