Descriptions du produit


The glass cases had been shattered, their contents gone. The bureaus lay open, their drawers bare. Here, too, the books had been pulled from the shelves and thrown to the floor. Sophia took in the destruction, too stunned to call out again. Everything, every single thing in the map room, had been destroyed or stolen. A broken glass map crunched beneath her boot and she looked down at the shards. There was a long, jagged scar across the leather-topped table. She touched it gingerly, as if to make certain that it was real. Then she raised her head and her eye fell on the wall map above the armchairs: the map of her parents’ voyage. It had been torn in half, ripped clear through from one end to the other.

Sophia stared numbly at the pins that lay scattered around her on the chairs and carpet, a single thought running through her mind: Where is he? Where is Shadrack? Where is he?

Revue de presse

A Summer/Fall 2014 Indies Introduce New Voices Selection
A Junior Library Guild Selection
One of Publishers Weekly’s Best Summer Reads

“Not since Philip Pullman's The Golden Compass have I seen such an original and compelling world built inside a book.”
—Megan Whalen Turner, New York Times best-selling author of A Conspiracy of Kings

I think The Glass Sentence is absolutely marvelous.  It’s the best book I’ve read in a long time.  The world-building is so convincing, the plot so fast-moving and often surprising, and the ideas behind the novel so completely original. I love this book.”
—Nancy Farmer, National Book Award-winning author of The House of the Scorpion

“I loved it! So imaginative!”
—Nancy Pearl

“An exuberantly imagined cascade of unexplored worlds, inscribed in prose and detail as exquisite as the ... maps young Sophia uses to navigate such unpredictable landscapes. A book like a pirate's treasure hoard for map lovers like me."
—Elizabeth Wein, New York Times best-selling author of Code Name Verity

* “Brilliant in concept, breathtaking in scale and stellar in its worldbuilding; this is a world never before seen in fiction . . . Wholly original and marvelous beyond compare.”
Kirkus Reviews, starred review
* “A thrilling, time-bending debut . . . It’s a cracking adventure, and Grove bolsters the action with commentary on xenophobia and government for hire, as well as a fascinating system of map magic.”
Publishers Weekly, starred review

I want to be a mapmaker!!!! 17 juin 2014
Par Creatyvebooks - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The story is about Sophia Tims who at the age of three is raised by her Uncle Shadrack (who is a world famous cartologer) when her parents disappeared while going on an expedition. One day her uncle sends her on an errand only to return to the house and find it in utter disarray. Her Uncle Shadrack has been kidnapped. And that is where the true adventure of The Glass Sentence begins. And what an adventure it is.

S.E. Grove took her time and great planning to bring forth this lovely, thoroughly imagitibve piece of work. Not since His Dark Material (Phillip Pullman) and the Harry Potter series (J.K. Rowling) have I’ve been excited, fascinated and totally absorb with a story. A story that is breathtakingly beautiful.

S.E. Grove has done a wonderful job with the world build. Top Notch. I felt like I was there with Sophia riding the steam train, sailing on the pirate’s ship with the briny wind blowing through my hair and on my face.

If you love original, innovating writing and storytelling, then The Glass Sentence is for you. Whether you are an adult (as I am) or a young child. Let the maps take you on a ride that you will never forget.

P.S. It’s rare but S.E. Grove is great at making you fall in love with the main characters of the story as well as the minor. Each had their own personality and were well developed.

Great Read! 17 juin 2014
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I read a lot of fantasy and science fiction and the world described in this book is unique, detailed and very intriguing. While intended for young adults, I (a grandmother) enjoyed the story a great deal. The main characters are very likable and even the most minor characters are interesting. Some of the concepts described regarding assorted maps/mapmaking and different ages take careful and thoughtful reading and may prove challenging to younger readers. With the exception of the epilogue, which seems to introduce the next adventure, this book could easily stand alone, but I am looking forward to the next two installments to complete the trilogy.

Stunningly original middle-grades fantasy is a welcome change from the plethora of dystopian novels flooding the market 2 juillet 2014
Par Gary K. McCormick - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
With so much of the middle-grade and YA fantasy that is being published these days being some variant of the "Future Dystopia" theme, with magic and/or supernatural elements sometimes thrown in for variety, it was refreshing to find a book that is as fresh and original as "The Glass Sentence".

A cataclysmic shattering and reshuffling of the space-time continuum called the Great Disruption has left Earth scrambled into a patchwork quilt of different time periods. Sophia, a bright 13-year-old girl, lives in a near-familiar Boston of the late 19th Century which lies in a time and place (an "Age") called New Occident; roughly equivalent to the original 13 American colonies, plus the Carolinas, Georgia, Florida, and part of the Deep South and Midwest. New Occident encountered the Great Disruption in the year 1799, but other parts of the world exist in different times, in different stages of civilization, some earlier, some possibly later than New Occident, as though the Disruption occurred on different parts of the Earth's surface at different times.

The temporal and physical disruption of the world has set each "Age" on a different path, so New Occident, while it would be familiar to a 19th-Century American, would also seem strangely unfamiliar in many ways (for instance, women have the vote!). Sophia's parents, famous explorers who have traveled to other Ages to try and solve the riddle of the Great Disruption, disappeared some ten years before, so Sophia lives with her uncle, Shadrack, her mother's younger brother.

Shadrack is a cartographer, or mapmaker, and in this new world order, mapmakers possess abilities far beyond what we think of when we hear that term. Maps are fashioned on, and of, parchment, paper, wood, leather, metal, glass, and even water - and they are magical, mystical artifacts which may contain worlds of information. When Shadrack is kidnapped by a mysterious group which seeks to exploit his skills and knowledge, Sophia and her new friend Theo, a boy from the Age known as the Baldlands (western North American and Mexico as we know them), set out to track down the kidnappers and rescue Shadrack.

On the journey Sophia and Theo encounter great danger, good friends, and sinister enemies, and find themselves delving into much deeper mysteries concerning maps, the Great Disruption, and the nature of the forces that threw the world into chaos, than they had ever dreamed of.

This is a most impressive debut novel, and readers in the target age groups will, I am sure, be thrilled with it. It is written to the target age group in a manner which brings them along for a fantastic tale without descending into cuteness or talking down to them. Adult readers will detect the elements of the narrative which distinguish "The Glass Sentence" from YA or adult novels, but it is still an enjoyable light read for older readers. I took my greatest enjoyment from the story from the realization of how much middle-grade readers will like this book - and how much they will look forward to the further adventures of Sophia and her associates which are forthcoming.

Unique and Adventurous 5 août 2014
Par Hafsah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
After the Great Disruption, the world was thrown into different Ages. Thirteen-year-old Sophia lives in New Occident, the olden English society. Part of a long line of explorers and mapmakers, Sophia’s parents disappeared eight years ago on an expedition and have yet to return. She has lived nearly all her life with her Uncle Shadrack, one of the greatest cartologers of all time.

But when her Uncle is kidnapped, Sophia sets out on an epic journey to find her Uncle, with the help of a boy from the West. She meets pirates, raiders, princesses, and dangerous creatures along the way

Now this is a novel that is bound to become a classic. Mapmaking, the Disruption of Worlds, and a plethora of characters, THE GLASS SENTENCE is a stunning debut like no other. Bustling with adventure, S.E. Grove’s debut is the what defines middle-grade fiction, and full of what tween readers love to read.

Something I really liked about THE GLASS SENTENCE was the many different things thrown into one world—pirates, raiders, bustling markets that reminded me of ancient Arabian bazaars, and the prim and proper English society. It was beautiful. It was different. It was a ton of fun.

But I had two problems with this book. The first happened to be the main character, Sophia. I didn’t exactly fall head-over-heels for her. She was a person who got mad for the tiniest of things, which really annoyed me. But the amazing character of Theo, a boy she befriends from the West, made up for everything Sophia lacked in. And Theo was one of my favorite characters. Along with a certain pirate or two (I mean, who doesn’t love pirates??).

My second problem was its long, winding paragraphs of explanations that, at times, I just couldn’t help but skip a few sentences. I just don’t like reading long paragraphs of information (that would fill up a few pages) with no dialogue or humor in between. (Now you see why I barely read my textbooks.)

THE GLASS SENTENCE is unlike any other debut I’ve read this year and definitely one I’d pick up again if I could. The main reason I picked it up though was for its cover. I just saw that the hardcover is fainter, which I don’t like at all. The ARC and paperback are much more prettier, and eye-catching, and adventurous.

And though the ending wasn’t exactly a cliff-hanger, I simply cannot wait for the next book. I have a pretty good inkling as to what is going to happen in it, and I’m excited to see if I’m right. Or wrong.

Should you read it? Ummm, YEAH. Despite the info-dump and Sophia’s anger-management problems, the book was AWESOME. So yes, you should read it. Fantasy, pirates, historical times mashed together—THE GLASS SENTENCE is a unique must-read!

Story concept awesome, but reader investment was a flop. 17 juillet 2014
Par Sarah Mederios - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I guess I'll be the first to say it. I did not enjoy this book as much as I expected to.

I went into this book with high expectations and was a little disappointed to find a book that felt rushed
and too simplistic for it's creative world.

The story concept here is amazing, it's fresh and unique and I was really excited to dive into this world of
distorted ages and endless maps.

However, I felt the major fault here was pacing and character development.
I felt some of these characters fell really flat, namely Sophia our main protagonist. She feels younger than thirteen to me
in this book and I think there could have been some added detail here to make the reader feel more connected to Sophia and invested in her journey. I felt like the book skipped from one event to the next, but I didn't feel much sympathy for the characters because we didn't spend too much time in one place with them.
