The Mapmaker’s Apprentice by C.J. Archer

• R E V I E W •

I’m completely taken with this series so far. I can’t even put into words how much I love these characters. All of them, but Willie is without a doubt my favorite. Anyone who knows me and reads this story will know exactly why.

I did hope to see a little more development with Indie in this book, and this book didn’t pack quite as big as a punch as its predecessor. Knowing there are two more books to read, as well as, at least a fifth in the making, I do understand the steady pace of the overall story development. Book two certainly wasn’t boring. Not in the least. There is still plenty of mystery and plenty of story to be told. A little more magic, a little more character growth, a little more romance in the making.

In my opinion, all the series is lacking thus far is TNT. I’m hoping Willie will be the one to solve this issue.

I’m going to continue to read. I downloaded book three this morning.

Fantasy, Mystery


When an apprentice from the Mapmakers’ Guild goes missing, Matt and India are employed to find him. Going undercover as a married couple, they discover that not everyone at the guild is what they seem, and the lad’s unearthly maps caused jealousy, suspicion and fear.

With one of the apprentice’s magic maps in their possession, India and Matt must use their wits and India’s fledgling, untried magic to find him. But the more they investigate, the more sinister plots they uncover, including a link between the Mapmakers’ and Watchmakers’ Guilds, and an ancient magical treasure buried beneath the streets of London.

As the net of suspicion widens and enemies draw closer, it’s not just the apprentice’s life that’s in danger, but Matt’s too. Someone will go to great lengths to prevent him discovering the name of the man who can fix the watch keeping him alive. Great lengths indeed.
