Libellus de Numeros by Jim West – Review


23494599Blurb:
Alex, a young precocious girl, mysteriously gets transported to a strange world where Latin and Math combine in formulas and equations with magical effects. With a cruel council leading the only safe city of it’s kind in this world, she will have to prove her worth to stay as well as help this city as it is the target for two evil wizards who seek to destroy the city and it’s ruling council.
Will the council’s mighty army of guardians be enough to repel the onslaught of the two wizards’ wrath?
To help the city and also get back home, she will need the help of the greatest mathematician of all time, Archimedes. In a world where math is magic, Alex wishes she paid more attention in math class.

My Review:
A book full of strong female characters is a wonderful beginning to a book, that can only be beaten by a world full of magic and excitement – just like this one! Jim has done a fantastic and brilliant world full of characters that live and breathe like real people.
Alex’s life of isolation from peers and parents can be related to by almost everyone. But when she’s shoved – literally – into another world, she works her hardest to be the hero she always wanted to be.
The protagonist is a woman using maths to make the world a better place – one of the best protagonist combinations I’ve seen for a long time.
If you want to encourage a young person to ignore the bullies and succeed in life, this is the book to do it.
A blessing and a wonder – I’m waiting happily for the next in the series!
