Elena Black has always escaped into a good book. Only her escape isn’t like yours and mine. No, she takes the meaning to a whole new level, delving into the very world the creations are born from. But when she decides that things within those worlds need to change, that the stories she enters and the people within are more than just fiction, she starts something that could jeopardise her very life. Intent of saving others, she puts herself in the crosshairs, especially since not everyone wants her meddling in the way things were meant to be, and there are those who will stop at nothing to prevent her interference.
The first thing to grip me about Danny Bell’s Empty Threat was the sheer energy of the book. The first person writing style really jumps from the page and grabs hold of you. Imaginative, funny, emotional, and clever, I really enjoyed watching this story come to life. I really couldn’t help but become invested in Elena, and her character is so vibrant and relatable. She’s not a cookie cutter protagonist by any means, socially awkward, yet confident in her element. This book is perfectly executed and fully satisfying. I can’t wait to pick up the next one.
