Dive in Review of The Story Peddler

Wait I know what you’re thinking, “didn’t you just post something two days ago?”

Why yes, I did. Thank you for noticing. I can’t help it if all of the awesome book things are happening at the same time. That’s just the way this crazy thing we call blogging works. Though I do promise not to overload you like this too often.

But once you see the book I have to show you today, you will be glad that I shared.

 

 

About the Book

Selling stories is a deadly business

Tanwen doesn’t just tell stories–she weaves them into crystallized sculptures that sell for more than a few bits. But the only way to escape the control of her cruel mentor and claw her way from poverty is to set her sights on something grander: becoming Royal Storyteller to the king.

During her final story peddling tour, a tale of treason spills from her hands, threatening the king himself. Tanwen goes from peddler to prey as the king’s guard hunts her down…and they’re not known for their mercy. As Tanwen flees for her life, she unearths long-buried secrets and discovers she’s not the only outlaw in the empire. There’s a rebel group of weavers…and they’re after her too.

Dive-In Review: The Story Peddler

The Story Peddler by Lindsay A. Franklin, is a love letter to the power of art.

How art moves us and changes us and reveals truths that we didn’t know we were looking for.

Her magic system is inspiring. Imagine the power to manifest your creative vision with little effort, and in no time at all. Now imagine that this power has one cravat. Truth will out.

That might make you a pretty dangerous person to the traitor sitting on a stolen throne.

I really loved this unique magic system so much. It features people with the power to bring imagination to life: song weavers, Color masters, and Story mages. Visible strands of light solidify into crystalline representations of stories and songs which can be sold for profit. These are what the peddlers peddle. They tell stories to the masses for entertainment and then they sell the resulting souvenir.

You could say that they’re stories are all real gems. ;-D (What not funny? Okay I’ll stop now.)

This is where it begins. When story peddler Tanwen, tells a story that she didn’t know she knew. And instead of a crystalline figure she creates a revolution.

This book was so good, I was immediately drawn into Tanwen’s story and her search for meaning and truth amidst all the lies and propaganda she’d been told her whole life. The ending has all the feels.
I really want that second book now.
