Jon has created a truly exciting and visceral world that came to life instantly in mind, and made me want to find anything and everything out as Bethany does! I found it highly enjoyable to read, and found it so interesting to see what a world where creatures from storybooks as well as new ones lived in. I cannot wait to read where Bethany's journey goes next! A highly enjoyable read that I would recommend to anyone
This book was a joy to read. Charmingly written, the narrator is as much a character as any of those whose adventures we follow through the weird and wonderful galaxy of Edimor. Bethany is a protagonist to root for. Her friends are your own, as together they get in and out of intergalactic scrapes, twirling pistols, quips and mustachios to boot. I laughed out loud, and was moved just as often, as when it comes to shots to the heart, the writer is just as trigger-happy as his space-piratical protagonists.
Five-star read. Would recommend to fans of Douglas Adams, and of the world-building fantasy genre. I anticipate the sequel.

A gripping read. Very imaginative.
Born in sunny Watford, Jon has dabbled with writing ever since he was young. As a big fan of both fantasy and sci-fi his stories have generally ended up on the more fantastical end of the spectrum. Favourite books include City of Dreaming Books and A Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy. If it's something a bit odd there's a good chance that he'll want to read it. Other interests include miniature wargaming, history, and anything super geeky. Along with writing Jon is also a trained actor, and annually appears in pantomimes, normally as the comic lead. When the World Falls Down is his first book, and part 1 of a series of 6. He has also started writing other fantasy and sci-fi work.
