If you haven’t heard about The Cartographers yet, please take a minute to sit down and look it up! I immediately fell in love with Peng Shepherd’s book, as it is SO different from what I usually read. Best of all, it blends mystery with fantasy, providing the best of both worlds.
Oh wow. I want to give an award to The Cartographers, as this has got to be the most interesting, compelling, and unique novel I’ve read all year (possibly ever). Cartography meets magic, creating a thrilling world – one with a murder mystery to solve.
As somebody who has always been fascinated by cartographers in general, this story immediately sucked me in. Throwing in the emotional backstory of Nell’s past and the magical side of cartography, it was inevitable that I would fall for this book.
Honestly, I would give just about anything to see a sequel for The Cartographers. I don’t know how likely that is (the ending is ambiguous), but I’d buy that book in a second, given even half the chance.
