It's great to be back for another post. Sorry for the mini vacation but I'm back and ready to work. I thought for today's post I'll be doing a review of The Speaker, which is the second book in The Sea of Ink and Gold.
The Synopsis of The Reader: Sefia knows what it means to survive. After her father is brutally murdered, she flees into the wilderness with her aunt Nin, who teaches her to hunt, track, and steal. But when Nin is kidnapped, leaving Sefia completely alone, none of her survival skills can help her discover where Nin's been taken, or if she's even alive. The only clue to both her aunt's disappearance and her father's murder is the odd rectangular object her father left behind, an object she comes to realize is a book--a marvelous item unheard of in her otherwise illiterate society. With the help of this book, and the aid of a mysterious stranger with dark secrets of his own, Sefia sets out to rescue her aunt and discover what really happened the day her father was killed--and punish the people responsible.
The Author: Traci Chee is the New York Times bestselling author of The Reader. An All-around word geek, she loves book arts and art books, poetry and paper crafts. She studied literature and creative writing at the University of California, Santa Cruz, and earned a master of arts degree from San Francisco State University. Traci grew up in a small town with more cows than people, and now feels most at home in the mountains, scaling switchbacks and happening upon hidden highland lakes. She lives in California with her fast-fast dog.
This book is amazing, I'm not quite finished so I'm not going to go into too much detail. (Slow reader problems.) I really enjoyed The Reader and Traci Chee is such an amazing author, I just knew I was gonna enjoy it. Traci Chee, has a way of transporting you with her writing. It's very fantastical and I just really appreciate that type of writing.
