Its humans versus monsters in Lyonesse: The Well Between the Worlds by Sam Llewellyn.

Lyonesse Rating: 4


Author: Sam LLewellyn

The once beautiful land of Lyonesse is sinking. It’s moving closer and closer to the monsters that live in the watery underground. The people of Lyonesse fear the monsters. But their skin burns out of the water. And the humans have found a way to harness this advantage—they burn the monsters for fuel.


The Accused

One day, while playing games with his friends, Idris Limpet has a life-changing accident. He falls into the water. Like all humans, he never learned to swim. If you could swim, you were a monster. Simple as that. So when Idris struggles in the water to stay alive, he is sentenced to execution. But a man called Ambrose knows that there’s more to Idris than meets the eye. He has a gift—an ability to hear thoughts and see through the eyes his bird Kek.


Monstergroom

Idris is brought to a monstergroom training facility where he learns how to capture and cage monsters for fuel. But being able to hear their thoughts makes his job a little too personal. Idris is put in a tough situation—somehow he must play a key role in saving Lyonesse from its terrible fate.


The Bottom Line

Book one in the Lyonesse series, The Well Between the Worlds, by Sam Llewellyn is a very unique story. It’s supposedly set before the days of King Arthur, but the world seems to have a timeless quality. The monsters add an element of fantasy that gives Lyonesse an unearthly feel. There is action, intensity, a solid plot line and brave characters—all important elements to make a quality young adult fiction story.

    So lots of people are doing this. I guess. I've seen this around a lot. So anyone who wants to, go ahead and ask. It could be a question about me. Or just aany random question that comes to mind cause you're bored. XD or it could be an advice question. You could ask me roleplaying questions too, though I don't think I'm as good as some others here. Still, I don't suck at it at least lol Whatever it is, I'll try my best at answering and I hope you're happy with my answer, even if it's a bad joke. XD No being inappropriate though! I'll report immediately. And any questions that I think are too personal I won't answer. C'mon, someone very bored is waiting for a question... P.S. Isn't it funny how kids seem so annoying with their million and one questions, and here I am wanting people to ask me some? XDD
