As the new year begins, lists, recounting the best selections from the previous year, emerge.
It’s been a long time since the last time I stopped in the middle of a book and marveled at the creativity of the premise, but I did when reading DRIFTWOOD, a tale of the place where worlds go to die, smashing up against each other so that the space of a couple blocks may contain not just different peoples or different landscapes, but even entirely different laws of physics. It felt like I was a kid reading my first story about portals to other worlds.
Serena of THE LIBRARY LADIES names the book as a Favorite Read of 2020.
The story jumps through various people’s tales of their interactions with Last, and through these tales, we explore a taste of the wide variety of worlds and peoples that make up Driftwood. It was such a unique story, I don’t think I’ve ever read anything like it. It’s definitely a must-read for fans of science fiction/fantasy.
