Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Evie Walker goes home to spend time with her dying father, she discovers that his creaky old house in Hopes Fort, Colorado, is not the only legacy she stands to inherit. Hidden behind the old basement door is a secret and magical storeroom, a place where wondrous treasures from myth and legend are kept safe until they are needed again. The magic of the storeroom prevents access to any who are not intended to use the items. But just because it has never been done does not mean it cannot be done.

And there are certainly those who will give anything to find a way in.

Evie must guard the storeroom against ancient and malicious forces, protecting the past and the future even as the present unravels around them. Old heroes and notorious villains alike will rise to fight on her side or to undermine her most desperate gambits. At stake is the fate of the world, and the prevention of nothing less than the apocalypse. In the same month, along with this all-new hardcover, Tor will publish a new novel in Carrie Vaughns popular, New York Times bestselling urban fantasy series featuring werewolf talk radio host, Kitty Norville. Kitty Goes to War will be the eighth book in this successful mass market series.

Synopsis:

Hidden in her dying father's house is a secret magical storeroom where wondrous treasures from myth and legend are kept until they are needed. Evie must guard the storeroom against ancient and malicious forces. At stake is the fate of the world and the prevention of nothing less than the Apocalypse.

I felt as that this book could have been so much better. There were some great points in it but it just didn't come together for me. I dislike writing bad reviews but I wouldn't suggest this book.

"Discord's Apple" is a fantastic book that brings some of the greatest legends of our time to life. It's so incredibly imaginative and original that it stands out from all the other books I've read in the last year -- last several years, really. Carrie Vaughn is an exceptional storyteller, and I consider this to be her masterpiece thus far. In this book, she perfectly weaves the shining world of myths and fairytales with a grim, war-torn version of what our modern reality could become. The resultant story is a lovely blend of magic, pain, romance, and desperation. I could go on for hours about the brilliance of this book, but I'll sum up by saying it truly is a fairytale for the modern age, and that everyone should give it a try.
