    I sort of stumbled into this novel by googling around YA dystopian coming of age fantasy books and this rare gem fell into my hands I asked around at my university and I couldn't believe how many people heard of Vivian Amberville I was surprised it has so few reviews on goodreads compared to how many people read it and said it was amazing My own take is that This book is not only amazing It's a masterpiece small spoiler aheadIt's the story of a mysterious orphaned teenager who learns she can manipulate the outcome of events She has hallucinations about some hidden world beyond the fabric of space and by some amazing storytelling she ends up in that secret hidden world a thought away from our own But that world is dangerous populated by dangerous beings who have learned how to manipulate reality called Weavers Vivian's power to reshape odds is a threat to the Weavers so they sentence her to the Weaver Trials in hope she will die What comes to happen is the best most complex story I ever read in my life The characters the settings everything is masterfully designed The story was outlined by a genius So much detail all of which is relevant in the end It all took my breath away and I'm going to tell people about itThis book deserves a bigger audience and MORE reviews

    Vivian Amberville is a form of meta fiction that captures the various facets of imagination in a uniue manner It speaks about the responsibilities that come with engaging our imagination in becoming free willed and then manifestation In this novel the mind as an imagining realm has also an inner will which is solely molded by the spirit of each Weaver By doing this we can say that it has an ethical dimension that uestions our mode of being in the world through our actions for a higher purpose Thinking about alterity through and within the infinite possibilities of the fictional worlds speaks about the importance that fiction has in our lives on a global scaleReading it feels like a breath of magical realism and sci fi which can proudly stand together with Terry Pratchett Jose Luis Borges and many others

    This book was recommended to me by a friend At first I was a bit sceptical about the concept of manipulating events but after reading a bit from my friend's copy I bought my own it's a great story Right now this author seems a bit no name but I can't believe that there's no reviews here It's a book that grabs the reader and pulls the reader into the story I literally cried over some of the scenes really wonderful book Looking forward to the next book in the series I'm keeping an eye on this author I think this is going to be big

    The storyline itself was exceptionally remarkable and the charactersanimals were very much created and charming There was never an exhausting minute in this read

    In dire need of editing The book felt like a rough draft at certain pointsBut if you can stomach the first few dozen pages where word choice could have been improved for the sake of continuity and immersion there’s a really cute story behind it all Think of wizards and magic but with time and destiny instead And a little girl with the power to tear everything down or build it anew with greater splendor than ever beforeThe main character is the most believable and the despair and anxiety she feels seem to me like something the author actually experienced first hand There’s a bit of development here where courage and resolve come to her as the plot develops The supporting cast have histories and lives of their own but their feelings and actions are not so visceral and conflictingThis is the first book in a promising series The needed creativity is there with a lot of interesting world building and uirky characters and a flawed main character who still needs to discover and come to terms with the extent of her powers

    This is the first time I've been impressed with a new author and a new releaseA very original idea to combine epic fiction with philosophy I honestly cannot compare this work with anything else It outruns Matrix by a mile It is a colourful double universe science fiction and fantasy all in one with a cast of characters you will fall in love with or despise right awayThe author even created fictional languages to make the world believable and boy it really shows The Artisan and Kaap the Hole in the Wall are my absolute favourite characters everThe settings are surreal like the dream construct of Inception fantastical yet realistic and a mix of uirky and whimsical with dark and dramatic The plot reflects that too It is very fast paced and contains many memorable and inspiring scenesI hope this book becomes a classic like Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter It surely has all the markings of a classic
