Book Review - The First Book of Ore: The Foundry's Edge
About the Book
For Phoebe Plumm, life in affluent Meridian revolves around trading pranks with irksome servant Micah Tanner and waiting for her world-renowned father, Dr. Jules Plumm, to return home. Chief Surveyor for The Foundry, a global corporation with an absolute monopoly on technology, Phoebe's father is often absent for months at a time. But when a sudden and unexpected reunion leads to father and daughter being abducted, Phoebe and would-be rescuer Micah find themselves stranded in a stunning yet volatile world of living metal, one that has been ruthlessly plundered by The Foundry for centuries and is the secret source of every comfort and innovation the two refugees have ever known.
My Take on the Book
In this book the author is not an amazing job to create characters that you truly feel connected to. You have strong protagonists in which the story revolves. You also get a story filled with adventure, mystery and suspense, all of which are things that a young reader wants in a book. I have to say that I are true be enjoyed the characters of Phoebe and Micah. The author has largely differentiated the characters which is part of their allure (to me that is). The book provided nonstop engaging reading opportunities, where I found myself and not willing to set the book down so that I could find out more. The world in which the book is situated was well developed in speaks about a world different than our own but still close enough to our reality that as a reader you can connect with what is being shared. This was a book that was wonderfully creative and is something that I know both micros will enjoy as they get a little bit older.
