Review: Worlds of Ink and Shadow by Lena Coakley

on Jan 27, 2017
The Brontes have always been close. After all, nothing can unite four siblings like life in an 
isolated parsonage on the moors. Their vivid imaginations lend them escape from their strict,
 spartan upbringing, actually transporting them into their created worlds: the glittering 
Verdopolis and the romantic and melancholy Gondal. But at what price? 
As Branwell begins to slip into madness and the sisters feel their real lives 
ebbing away, they must weigh the cost of their powerful imaginations, even as their 
characters—the brooding Rogue and dashing Duke of Zamorna—refuse to let them go.

Genre: Young Adult Historical Fiction

5 out of 5 Stars


Worlds of Ink and Shadow is a beautiful, intricate adventure! 

I was so very curious about this novel because the premise is just too cool. Four siblings traveling to the fictional worlds they create...yes!

Perhaps my favorite part of this novel was the connections it made to the published works of the Brontes. 

The Bronte siblings are bright and creative. Branwell is the only son, and bears the pressure that comes with that. He enjoys escaping to Verdopolis and playing renowned thief with his criminal companions.
