A character can jump into fictional books, but when she takes someone else with her, the trouble really begins. Part fantasy, part science fiction, there's a lot going on in this adventure.
There are two other books in this series.
There is a lot happening in this book. For me, the most interesting parts were the debate about the value of science vs. the value of magic (sort of a science fiction vs. fantasy conflict), and the conflict of ethics about whether ruthless authors should be allowed to determine fictional characters' lives. There are some stories within stories, and a character who impersonates a different fictional character for a large part of the book. A character is searching for her father, which is supposed to be the main drive in the book, but it gets a bit lost behind the dragons and science soldiers and all the other things going on.
