I believe Jeremy Lachlan is a truly inspirational author and someone who all bookworms and lovers of adventure and fantasy should check out because of his Book Jane Doe and the Cradle of All worlds and the protagonist Jane who is very relatable to young girls and a great role model, as she is strong, determined, persistent and will do anything to save her friends & family as well as all the worlds and I LOVE to see books with more strong female leads so young girls have characters they can look up to.
I have met Jeremy before and it was incredible, although I’m not going to lie, I had a huge, ridiculous fan girl moment and I was speechless for a very long time before finally being able to mumble out a few sentences which made me look less than intelligent... It was super embarrassing! He was so kind and kept talking to me even though I could barely make any noises. All my friends who know me well will know how rare it is for me to be silent.
Jeremy Lachlan is an Aussie, award winning author, Jane Doe and the Cradle of All Worlds has won the 2019 ABIA award. He also attends and runs writing workshops and talks to inspire other young writers & readers which is incredibly inspirational!
I love Jane Doe and the Cradle of All Worlds and highly recommend reading it for kids and adults aged about 8+, there are no sex or drug references, there is a little bit of violence but nothing too gory. It has very strong themes of magic, adventure, overcoming evil and one’s personal issues. It took me 3 days to read this book and I got into trouble for reading it all night instead of sleeping but it was totally worth it! I absolutely couldn’t put it down; it was gripping, thrilling and so action-packed! Jeremy’s use of vivid descriptions and his talent for creating emotional scenes made me feel like I was there, alongside Jane as she ventured through the manor on a quest to rescue her father which then leads to a much bigger and more urgent quest. I fell in love with the main character from the first few paragraphs. I could totally relate to her, as she is the misfit of her town and often had moments where she felt that she didn’t belong and she also had to overcome bullying, feeling excluded and her own insecurities and feelings of unworthiness while also battling the evil villain!
I was extremely upset when Jane Doe and the Cradle of All Worlds ended because I knew I had to wait a whole YEAR before the sequel would come out, then when I met Jeremy and pestered him to see when it would be available he let me know that the release has been delayed but it’s all good, I totally forgive him (JK) because we are so close to the release of Jane Doe and the key of all Souls!! I CAN’T WAIT!! As Jane will venture further into the elusive manor while all the souls of the world hang in the balance and if she fails this quest all the worlds will fall.
For all fans of fantasy, mystery and action packed adventures with a side of magic and overcoming evil… If you haven’t done it yet, read Jane Doe and the Cradle of All Worlds, then get ready for the release of Jane Doe and the key of all Souls in January 2020!
