The Glittering World: Robert Levy - Review

The Glittering World

I just wanted to share my review of this novel by Robert Levy. I'd really recommend it if you like fantasy authors such as Neil Gaiman or Terry Brooks.

The Glittering World novel starts with a group of friends Michael Whitley (Blue), Elisa, Jason and Gabe visiting the Starling Cove Friendship Colony in Canada to visit a house that Blue's recently deceased Grandmother bequeathed him.

 As we get to know each of the characters we find out that Blue's upbringing in the Starling Cove Friendship Colony has some startling secrets to reveal. As we learn more about the character's history, and the history of the cove, Robert Levy introduces us to a richly described fantasy world that promises to answer some of the questions regarding Blue's past. Some reviewers mentioned that they disliked the structure of this novel - (each main section is told from a specific character's viewpoint) but I thought it worked really well.

If you have a favourite character though it does mean that you have to wait a bit to hear from them. I really enjoyed The Glittering World by Robert Levy and look forward to future works from him.

I rated this novel 4 out of 5. Many thanks to NetGalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review. As always, my opinions are my own.
