#AmReading: Knox

The Rainbow Opera (2005)
Elizabeth Knox

A quick update on my reading at the moment! A year ago I picked up the sequel to this novel in a second hand book shop, without realising it was a sequel. Its companion has now joined my shelf and I’ve leaped into an original world of Dreamhunters and entwined stories…

The prologue is masterful in every component and leaves the reader no choice but to go into chapter one. Knox’s fantasy is of that magical kind that the likes of Pullman and Rowling have managed before: indirect, visual, convincing, enchanting, memorable. And not a vampire in sight!

I’m very excited to continue exploring the world of this NZ gem!
