Good Wednesday all

  Good Wednesday all today we are going to review a novella by Mathew Cox . SOPHIE'S LIGHT ''

                            BOOK BLURB

Sophie lives in a most peculiar cottage at the center of the Forgotten Forest, its inside much larger than its outside.

You see, the house must be large, for it holds a great troll as well as a little girl. As one might expect, working for such a creature is rather frightening to a seven-year-old, but the endless expanse of black trees outside is even scarier.

She’s afraid to make even the slightest sound, for the troll abhors loud children.

He’s not terribly fond of quiet children either―unless they’re in his stew.

Sophie’s precious light offers comfort in her darkest moments. She can’t remember where it came from, but it’s her only source of hope holding back the gloom that yearns to devour her soul. Trolls are covetous beasts, and when he spots her shiny bauble and steals it, Sophie faces two terrible options:

Stay and suffer the wrath of a furious troll, or take her chances in a forest of her deepest fears.

                     MY REVIEW 

   This book was one book that I just couldn't put down . I actually read it in one sitting this morning . The author really takes us on an emotional journey in this book . Let me introduce you to Sophie a sweet young girl who is living with a troll. She is basically his slave, the troll hates her and really just wants to bake her in a pie . But she has a secret a light that helps her  Until the day her light goes missing and she goes after it fighting the bogey and the goblins to find her way home 
   The characters are so well written and so complex . You really want to just keep Sophie in a nice soft bubble and help her get out of the Troll's way . You do feel like she can make it out and on her own as you read . You see her in a way that will make your heart swell and have tears in your eyes . The troll is the epitome of evil . You really want to stab him over and over . You can't help but hate him . 
  This book had me tearing up from the very first page . The things this author puts this young girl through is so horrible . I just about had to put the book down and walk away for a few mins . I knew there had to be more to the story then just a young girl and a troll and man I was right . The author takes us on an emotional rollercoaster ride . The twist at the end was unbelievable . I am not going to tell you but you will cry tears of joy at the end of the book and everything will make sense . I must admit this book is addictive and I had it read in a morning. If you want to add a great suspenseful book add this one to your summer reading list
