The Wayward Children series is fabulous! I’ve never read anything quite like it. It’s a world of other worlds. Each child finds their way into a world perfectly suited to them. Although the world suits them, there is always something bizarre about it, sometimes even downright disturbing.
Lundy was extremely mature for her age. Nevertheless she was still a child, thinking she knew it all, not realizing that there was much she wasn’t capable of comprehending yet. The world she wandered into was a logic world, one that revolved around bargaining and fairness. The problem with logic is that it’s emotionless, which makes it cruel in it’s own way. The problem with fairness is that it’s all in the eye of the beholder.
Lundy was much like the world she wandered into: logical and emotionless. The true impact of her actions was never something that was easy for her to grasp. Some of it was due to her age but definitely not all. Her fierce independent streak made her selfish at times. I couldn’t relate to her because she was so cold with little disregard for others. All I will say is that Lundy learned her lesson the hard way; yet I found the ending very satisfying.
I received this from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.
