A private world, complete with village and forest, appears in a city. Only a few chosen people can see it and enter. Drawn together, they explore and discover they can change the world with acts of creativity: writing a story, painting a picture, or just thinking. But they aren’t the first to explore this seductive magic, and it isn’t without dangers.
This is a modern, slightly dark fairy tale with the focus on characters rather than action. The writing’s excellent and well-edited, the characters complex and interesting, and the empty village populated by fragments of lost stories is nicely eery. A compelling exploration of the positive and negative aspects of creative imagination.
