Review of The Emerald Atlas: The Books of the Beginning by John Stephens

I was lucky enough to receive a proof copy of this book and it is fabulous!
The Emerald Atlas is by far the best book I have read in quite a while. I could not put it down. It is an action packed adventure involving three young orphans who find themselves being transported to one village in various different times.
There is a real fairytale element to this story and the sense that good must triumph over evil. Evil being the beautiful, but dangerous Countess who controls Cambridge Falls in the past that the children visit.
The plot itself jumps to various different times, but i didn't ever feel lost. The different places visited by the children, such as the kingdom of the dwarf King were mesmerising.
Overall, this is a brilliant book and  was so pleased to see that this is the first book in a trilogy, so i cannot wait to read the next one.
I would recommend this to children and adults alike, you will not be dissappointed. 

In my opinion this deserves 10/10!
