I’ve been lucky enough to have been asked to take part in the blog tour for Linden Forster’s Divine Invention! I was gifted the book in return for a review, and all views are my own and in no way influenced by the author, publisher, or tour organiser.

Most stories begin with either an unforeseen turn of events or a problem.

It was not until very recently anyone noticed that the quantity of plants and animals had not. The delicate balance of the ecosystem has tipped and food is dwindling.
The King assigned the island’s two resident self-proclaimed geniuses, the Creators, to find a solution. The fruits of their labour ripen into the invention of the world’s first aquatic transportation device and promises to provide passage from the island to search further afield for food and resources.
So, there it is. Problem solved. End of story. Barring any unforeseen turn of events…
