On paper, this series shouldn’t work. A cast of your favorite literary heroes traveling into famous stories and defeating villains from the darkest corners of literature? Mixing magic and non-magical worlds? Gathering them all in a central, modern location and time and pairing them off like it’s an episode of Friends? It sounds like bad fan fiction run amok.
And yet Heather Lyons has created absolute magic with her Collectors’ Society. Against all odds, a relationship between a weathered and yet inspiringly strong Alice (of Wonderland fame) and a lovable and appropriately mischievous Huckleberry Finn becomes the most romantic thing you’ve read all year. You find yourself cheering on a love story between a feisty Mary Lennox (from The Secret Garden) and an extremely complex and tragic Victor Frankenstein. The idea of traveling into stories that so familiar to you becomes a thrilling prospect rather than a cheesy plot device.
And with villains so evil you’d like to personally dismember them, you can’t help but root for the incredible heroes to trudge through into their glorious finale.
Heather Lyons introduces even more heartbreak, more action, more evil, more true love, and more magic to her already incredible and compelling series. This is a must read for lovers of fantasy and amazing heroines who can save their own worlds and then some.
