The Cracks in the Kingdom by Jaclyn Moriarty

The Cracks in the Kingdom by Jaclyn Moriarty

Reviews 3 ★★★★½

The Cracks in the Kingdom is the second instalment in the Colours of Madeleine series by Jaclyn Moriarty. The first book, A Corner of White, swept me off my feet but its sequel took my admiration to new heights. We take up once more with Madeleine Tully of Cambridge, England, The World and Elliot Baranski of Bonfire, The Farms, the Kingdom of Cello as they exchange notes through a crack between their worlds.

I loved Unbreakable! I can’t believe it took me so long to pick it up 🙁 I think I was scared that the sequel couldn’t possibly live up to Unravelling, but it did!! Perfect for fans of science fiction, Unravelling isn’t a book to miss. I really, really hope there’s another book.

Unravelling by Elizabeth Norris

Reviews 2 ★★★★★

Every now and again I come across a book that screams to be read in one sitting – forget eating and sleeping and just read! Unravelling is one of these books, and unfortunately my read through it was interrupted by … work. But I went straight back to it after…
