The Heart of Escher Review

James Fisher, a lonely, bullied schoolboy, finds himself in the dark and twisted land of Escher after wishing himself away from an ill-fated family holiday.

Lost and frightened, James must help heal the dying world of Escher, overrun by the creatures of the Nightmare forest, to return home.
Guided by the emerald-eyed cat, Sam, and befriended by the headstrong resistance fighter, Jasper, James is taken on an adventure through a world mirroring his own nightmares, where he is forced to confront his own fears and the ghostly Shadow in order to save Escher.

Unbeknown to James, not only is he fighting for Escher’s future, but also his own.

I enjoyed this book and the imagination the author put into it, with the animal people and the adventures of not only Edward but his brother's as the journey continues. I enjoyed that every now and then we got a good insight into what other characters were thinking to pull the story along as they traveled. The places Author Jonathan Dance has created in Escher were fantastic and I really liked the unique idea of the Gardner and the different people. Overall I enjoyed the journey and the fun of the story as it progressed. More than once I found myself needing to finish a part before I could put the book down because it was too good to just set aside. I do highly recommend this book - especially for middle grade when kids are at that age of feeling vulnerable but wanting adventure. They will easily relate to the character in this book as he journeys to save Escher.

Born and raised in Hampshire, I spent most of my childhood dreaming up random adventures.

I left the sunny south coast to study Graphic Communication in Bath, where I fell in love with the rolling Somerset hills when I wasn’t walking up them.

Returning to Hampshire 6 years later, after meeting my now wife, Claire, I enjoy a quieter life, walking in the New Forest and relaxing with my wonderful wife and fluffy cat Molly.

I have always enjoyed telling stories, more often than not in visual form, either in films or animations. However, the idea of Escher was too big for me to do visually by myself so I picked up a pen and started writing.

Having written one novel, I am now keen to tell more stories of Escher, while at the same time expressing my imagination with my art.
