I’d seen/heard Nadine Brandes’s name before, but not yet read any of her books. When Fawkes showed up on Thomas Nelson’s summer release list, I made Brandes an author to read (how could I not with that gorgeous cover?).
In My Opinion…
Fawkes is a mix of historical fiction (set around England’s Gun Powder Rebellion) and fantasy (color masks, color magic, and a stone plague).
Thomas Fawkes is the son of the historical figure Guy Fawkes and wants nothing more than his color mask. But the colors don’t speak to him and the stone plague is slowly taking over his body.
