Book #1 in The Mapmakers Trilogy. It is 1891 and the continents of the world have been flung far and wide by the Great Disruption. Not only that, but each continent has also landed itself in another time period! When Sophia’s renowned cartologist uncle Shadrack is kidnapped by strange men with grappling hooks and scars on their faces — called Sandmen– she and a boy she hardly knows, Theo, set out to find him. But the villains are also after Sophia; she has something they want.
I just absolutely loved this book. The world is amazing, though it didn’t always make sense. The characters were great, and the world building was blended in very well with the story telling.
