It’s 31 minutes to midnight and I’ve only just remembered to do today’s WTSS! O dear
A meme-thing created by me. All are welcome to join!
Pick a book cover (preferably one where you don’t know the plot).
Guess what the story e.g. who’s our mc; female? male? what genre is it? what happens?.
[Optional >] After that actually read up about the synopsis and comment on whether you think yours is better xD
This Week’s Cover:
My Story: I was watching Relic Hunter last night and I love Tomb Raider and The Mummy, so guess what story ideas are running through my head here?! xD BUT the tag line mentioned magic. O dear I am stuck… Okay so a magic, lost relic perhaps? ‘Magic caused the war’ so previously magic was in the world but due to the overpowering use of magic, war broke out between…. two different types of magical beings and it got so ‘nuclear’ that after it magic was forbidden. BUT now there’s a… evil magic person trying to control the world and only…. I’m guessing this is MG or YA so three kids have to go on a mission and travel to find the magic item that will save the world! And it is… the eye of…Osiris? xD OR! The Relic Guild is the good magic side group of people that combat the bad guy!
The Actual Synopsis: It was said the Labyrinth had once been the great meeting place, a sprawling city at the heart of an endless maze where a million humans hosted the Houses of the Aelfir. The Aelfir who had brought trade and riches, and a future full of promise. But when the Thaumaturgists, overlords of human and Aelfir alike, went to war, everything was ruined and the Labyrinth became an abandoned forbidden zone, where humans were trapped behind boundary walls a hundred feet high.Young Clara struggles to survive in a dangerous and dysfunctional city, where eyes are keen, nights are long, and the use of magic is punishable by death. When a strange man named Fabian Moor returns to the Labyrinth, Clara learns that magic serves a higher purpose and that some myths are much more deadly in the flesh. The only people Clara can trust are the Relic Guild, a secret band of magickers sworn to protect the Labyrinth. To truly defeat their old nemesis Moor, mightier help will be required. To save the Labyrinth – and the lives of one million humans – Clara and the Relic Guild must find a way to contact the worlds beyond their walls.
After Thoughts: This was my worst attempt, right? Okay so it has an Attack on Titan feel, if Attack on Titan was about magic and gods, and not human-eating-giants. My second guess on the novel was similar! I do love the cover of this book but not the novel for me…
What did you guess? Have you read this? What did you think?
