The identity thief is a young adult contemporary fantasy that is set in London. A shapeshifting sorcerer called Cuttlefish unleashes a terrifying magical carnage in London, causing chaos. Homes are attacked, and people are found unconscious, but nothing is stolen. As magical crime increases, the story unravels wondrous mysteries and delightful twists, creating a beautiful story to read.
The characters are carefully chosen. Their personalities, charisma, growth and relationships impacted the depth of the story. Alongside the strong literature wording of the story being suited for the young adult audience, I felt that the author took care of making sure that the formation of the plot and pace kept his audience reading along.
I would strongly recommend this book to the young generation. Its world-building was spot on, and the theme was very engaging. One thing, in particular, was the author’s ability to express and tell the story. With the added romance and other small attention that was given to the details, I believe the book was brilliant and kept its originality.
I look forward to reading more from this reader.
