#BlogTour #Review – The Map Maker’s Daughter by Caroline Dunford – @verdandiweaves @zooloo2008 #TheMapMakersDaughter

Good morning everyone! I hope you’re all well?

Today I have a review of The Map Maker’s Daughter by Caroline Dunford for Zooloo Book Tours.
This is a very intriguing book and I really did enjoy it. It made a difference being a fantasy as I’ve not read one for a while.

I hope you enjoy.


The Map Maker’s Daughter by Caroline Dunford

Sharra’s world is a terrifying place.

Violent seismic ‘Shifts’ and outbreaks of an all-consuming black fire radically alter landscapes on an increasingly frequent basis. Only the Map Makers can predict where the Shift will fall, and Sharra, daughter to one of the most famous Map Makers, yearns to join their ranks and break a cultural taboo that forbids female cartographers.

Sharra’s father, Lord Milton, is one of the few to challenge the current order, but his shadowy past limits his political reach and his second wife, Lady Ivory, is determined to manipulate him to ensure a privileged future for herself and her daughter, Jayne. 

The main obstacle standing in Ivory’s way is Sharra.

Caroline lives for stories. Reading them. Telling them, Watching them. She can’t get enough of them. She can hypnotise people and she sings well in the shower. She enjoys cooking, but hates housework, and has managed to convince everyone who knows her that she doesn’t understand washing up. So much so that when friends visit some of them do it for her. Fortunately she also has a dishwasher. She always feels she didn’t make enough of her teenage years, and hopes that at least the teenagers in her books do!

The world that Caroline Dunford has created in this novel is actually quite terrifying, obviously I won’t give out too much detail as we all know I hate to give out spoilers. There are men known as Map Maker’s and they draw maps to predict where a ‘Shift’ in the world is going to happen. Women are forbidden to draw or become Map Maker’s.

I loved Sharra, I think she has the makings to become a fantastic heroine, not that she wasn’t here. She’s very headstrong and she knows what she wants and needs to do and she goes for it. Maven is grief stricken, there is no other way to say it. This makes him think without care. However, when he meets Sharra, she helps him come out of his shell a bit. I honestly believe that they are soul mates, they just need to believe it for themselves.

This definitely has the makings of being a fantastic series and I really do hope there is a book 2 as I feel Sharra’s journey has only just begun. There is a lot to fix and even more to explore in the world. I’m desperately keeping my fingers crossed.

Would I recommend this book? Yes, I would! I thoroughly enjoyed it, had me hooked from the start and I couldn’t put it down. It gave me some late nights. It is a fast-paced book and well-written. I’d love to take a walk around the author’s imagination though, no matter how much it terrifies me.
