Book Review: The Clay Lion (Book One of The Clay Lion series) by: Amalie Jahn/ REVIEW BY S.D. CURRAN

Book Review: Amalie Jahn’s The Clay Lion (Book One of The Clay Lion series)

Have you ever wished you could go back in time and change things? Change how you responded to a situation, change a terrible conversation with your parents, retaliate against a bully? Have you ever dreamed of altering your future by marrying someone different, or not marrying at all?

Have you ever dreamed of going back in time and trying to save a loved one from dying?

In Amalie Jahn’s The Clay Lion, Brooke Wallace knows the rules of time travel – in traveling, she cannot alter the timeline, meaning she is forbidden from interfering in her brother’s ultimate fall to cancer. However, despite the potential consequences of being imprisoned, she decides to do just that, attempt to save her brother. In this Butterfly-Effect type scenario, however, instead of simply disrupting her own life, she ultimately disrupts the lives of those around her. Can Brooke Wallace go back in time again and undo the damage she has done, even if it means she cannot ultimately save her brother?

This was a beautifully written novel, the first of a series of three. Instead of focusing on the science of the story, which is believable in many regards, Amalie Jahn focuses on developing the relationships between characters. Look at this not simply as a ‘light’ science-fiction novel, but a novel that examines the potential consequences of time travel.
