Review of Memory of Memories (book 1 of the Glass Darkly series) by Serenity McLean
The story is about Lani, who has died and gone to heaven. Her life did not end at her death, it began a new chapter as a storyteller, it takes her on a journey to fulfil her desires. The chapters also begin with a timeline, to explain where Lani is on her storytelling journey. There are a few short poems too included at the beginning of the chapters, beautiful poems. I really enjoyed reading this unusual tale, it was written beautifully, it gave you a warm fuzzy feeling reading it, and it made me wonder what role I would be given (hopefully still a reader).
You may think it is a crazy idea behind the story, but it is a lovely story, with depth and qualities that inspire.
