Cryptic Spaces (aka Foresight), is book one in the ‘Cryptic Spaces’ series written by the exceptionally talented author Deen Ferrell and wow what a stellar start to a series! Cryptic Spaces is a book I was keen to read ever since discovering it because I always love to find unique stories with YA themes to read so when I discovered Cryptic Spaces I thought ‘is this finally the perfect book?!’. Now that I have finished Cryptic Spaces I can happily write that yes it is book lovers. Cryptic Spaces is one of the most well written and well-developed stories I have ever come across, and I truly mean this as Cryptic Spaces is exceptional and should not be missed!
Cryptic Spaces is a unique book with a dense plot with many plot avenues however it is never too confusing to read and is, in fact, a breeze. The reader will be introduced to many characters along the way, but the key characters to keep note of are the protagonist of the novel, Willoughby, his friend Antonio, and the ‘beautiful Sydney Senoya.’ Willoughby is a gifted mathematician and when he tries to solve a mystery, he his led to ‘the barbershop of Antonio Chavez,’ and it is here that the novel really takes off. The reader from this point onwards, along with characters mentioned (and a few more), will be taken on an incredible joueny of magic and secrets and what is revealed along the way is fascinating as well as thrilling and should not be missed book lovers!
The story of Cryptic Spaces is a thrilling one thanks to the enthralling and action-packed moments as well as the unpredictable nature of the book that will have the readers turning the pages with haste from beginning to end. I love books that involve a journey because usually in these stories the character develops and grows as they overcome events and battles which in turn adds to the development of the character and explores life lessons throughout the book and that is most certainly the case with Cryptic Spaces.
Deen Ferrell is an incredible writer who knows how to capture young readers attention from the start. Ferrell does this by placing the reader in the thick of the drama straight away with no long build up. The reader will be thrust into the story and because the reader experiences this so fast they will be hooked and captivated to read until the very end. Ferrell manages to ensure that his readers are entertained from beginning to end, and he does this by weaving twists and turns throughout his book as well as many jaw-dropping moments that will fascinate as well as excite young readers.
Fantasy novels, in general, are difficult to write because you have to transport the reader quickly and effortlessly, but sadly this is rarely accomplished in a fantasy story but not with Cryptic Spaces. Cryptic Spaces is the way it is because Ferrell knows what he is doing! Ferrell knows how to whisk his readers away on an epic journey and entice them with magnificent descriptions and keep readers entertained from start to finish!
Overall Cryptic Spaces is a marvelous, stellar and supreme young adult book that will entertain, delight as well as charm readers and so I, of course, have to award this book five stars! Be sure to have a read of the preview below book lovers; you will not regret it!
