The Labyrinth Wall by Emilyann Girdner - Review

The-Labyrinth-Wall-CoverAraina’s isolated teenage life is forever altered when she witnesses a man emerge through a rippling wall into the dark labyrinth she calls home. As a result of the stranger’s arrival, Araina’s Creators have unleashed a series of magical attacks using the labyrinth against its inhabitants. Now Araina must decide if she will trust potentially deceitful allies in order to reach safety on the other side of the labyrinth wall.
The Labyrinth Wall is the story of a young woman who discovers that although labyrinth walls confine her and her enemies try to repress her, the power of hope can set her free.
Will the walls that confine her be the walls that set her free?
Young Adult Fantasy Novel. Hit #2 on the Amazon Best Seller list in its category the day after release and hit #26 on the Top 100 Amazon Free Best Seller List.
My Thoughts: The Labyrinth Wall has an amazing dystopic feel mixed with fantasy. I love the slow unravel of events. Each new thing was scarier, creepier, or more amazing. Emilyann Girdner has a writing style that I fell in love with immediately. She pulled me into the story and kept me interested through it all.
The characters throughout are well written and I loved the interactions. I especially liked the dynamic between the all of the Mahk withing the labyrinth. Araina is a wonderful main character. I really enjoyed watching her grow as a person during the book. I will be interested to see how much more she may change in future books.
This book only began to touch on the adventures the characters can have. They endure so much, but there is already a promise of more to come. I hated to finish this book, because now I'll have to wait for the next, but it is well worth the wait. This is one of those books that I'll love reading again and again.

Meet the Author:

EmilyannLab2Though she was born in Germany and raised in Turkey until the age of five, Emilyann Girdner spent the majority of her grade school years in Tallahassee, Florida. She discovered early she had a love for stories. Reading books, watching movies and then acting them out with friends or toys gave living an extra flavor. This is likely why she spent the first part of her college career studying Creative Writing, before switching to Graphic Design and then graduating with a BFA in Digital Art from Missouri State University in 2011. Her writing has appeared on websites and blogs including Center for Work Life, Easter Seals Florida, MU Museum of Art & Archaeology’s Musings and She is best known for her Amazon Best-Selling novel, The Labyrinth Wall. Emilyann is now living and working in Florida.
Given her three focus transitions as an undergraduate, it isn’t a shock that she is a multi-medium lover, exploring writing, digital art, photography and design. She finds that her creativity is most fluent when given the opportunity to bounce between artistic outlets.
To truly understand this Author, there are two things to know about her. Emilyann hopes to share a love for others and God in all she does. She believes that imagination sparks beauty in the soul.
