The Scribbler Guardian: Arks of Octava by Lucian Bane

Jeremiah Poe isn’t just any character in the Realm of Fiction.; he is The Muse Rider, written with special powers. Able to tap into the minds of other Scribblers, Poe can change the outcome of people's lives on Octava. 

But when Poe learns that ancient codes are being broken in his realm and that his Scribbler may be in danger, he reverses the 8-fold way and goes to Earth to find him. 

But when he arrives, he's astonished to learn that his Scribbler knows nothing of his actual existence, or his entire fictional world, Octava. To further complicate his confoundment, he learns that his Scribbler is not a he, but a she. 

As they team up to find what's destroying their realms, Poe's powers on Earth grow stronger. But it's his growing feelings for his Scribbler that become the greatest threat of all. With his character being designed to never fall in love, he can't exist in either realm. And his Scribbler is forced to pen the impossible into his world.

Lucian Bane is a creative mastermind.  The Scribbler Guardian is one of the most unique stories I've ever read. It ensnared  my from the first page. Though the story began with a comical and intriguing atmosphere it unexpectedly morphed into one with a darker tone. I found myself fascinated to no end by the well developed and well written storyline.  The characters are on point and I actually found myself in reader's limbo at the end of the book. I rarely recommend books personally to my friends, but this easily falls into the "must-read" category.  I am very much looking forward to the second installment.  
5 Stars
