A mysterious letter. An idyllic world. And a peculiar collection of antiques. It all waits to be discovered in Strange Luck, an imaginative novel that mixes fantasy and mystery for a thrilling reading experience. Hopeful that her father can be saved from a chronic condition, seventeen-year-old Daisy sets out to find a cure, but accidentally lands in a wicked world called The Nameless. As Daisy explores the moaning caverns and encounters people who refuse to go above ground, it becomes clear that the world’s inhabitants are more than just strange. They may be keeping a dark secret. They may have been lured and trapped here for a reason. And somehow—impossible as it may seem—they may still have a chance to regain what has been taken from them.
A daring adventure complimented with vivid imagery, Strange Luck will delight adults, teens, and anyone who can’t resist an imaginative escapade
Strange Luck is an oddity. It is a funky mixture of mystery and fantasy, leaving the reader to wonder if they had actually read the book or if it was all a dream.
A magical, make you wish for your own Utopia kind of dream. It was not lacking in any area. Starting with the plot that slowly drew the reader in, wound them about a bit, with a twist here and there, all to be thrust right in the middle of a new adventure. If the plot doesn’t draw you in, which if you’re a fantasy lover like I am, who loves odd quirks and fun mysterious items and places , it should definitely not leave you wanting.
Then there’s the mind-blowing world called The Namless. It is a horrifying, beautiful place that’s to good to be true. The authors mesmerizing descriptions are enough to entrance a reader, until one forget’s exactly where they were headed. You sort of get that I want to linger here forever kind of feeling. That is until you start to feel that feeling of something is definitely not right.
The author truly succeeded in making this a strange read. Blending mystery and fantasy seamlessly. It was a well planned out read that made you think it was going to be this odd mystery wherein a girl yearns for adventure because she is forever stuck in a small town, in an equally small antique shop, with a letter that has been sitting on a shelf unopened for a hundred years. But then drops you smack dab in the middle of an insanely grand adventure.
While I recommend this book to those who like funky fantasy novels, I will say that this book, while YA, is more geared towards the younger YA generation. Not saying that an older person who likes YA wouldn’t enjoy it, I just thought it bared mentioning that it’s a lighter, younger YA read. Never the less it takes the reader on a marvelous adventure.
