The Astrologer’s Daughter – addictive reading!

BOOK REVIEW: The Astrologer’s Daughter by Rebecca Lim


I would have finished this book within a day if I had had the time to read non-stop when I started it a few days ago. As it was, I read over half in one day because I simply couldn’t leave it alone. I tried to do other things, I truly did, but my thoughts kept wandering back to The Astrologer’s Daughter with Avicenna Crowe and Simon Thorn and Joanne Nielson Crowe, so I had to pick it back up again so that I could reach the end and find all the answers! Did I find all the answers? Kind of … not exactly … but the ending did feel as though all those little threads of story lines throughout, that perhaps didn’t seem all that hugely important at the beginning, were all tied up in a nice little bow at the end. Except for, of course, those things that I still want to know, but won’t mention because I don’t want to spoil anything for anyone.

So, what I’m saying is that I think there should be another book, or maybe multiple Avicenna Crowe books because I would love to read more about these interesting, quirky characters. Oh and, of course, I was very excited that Words with Friends was a little feature in the story as I was a tad bit addicted to the game myself a few years ago and am now seriously considering downloading the app again so that I can play!

Rebecca Lim is a writer from Melbourne, Australia. She also wrote the Mercy series that I absolutely loved, as well as a bunch of other books for children and young adults. I can’t wait to read more of her work – I hear that her next book is due out in June.
