The Octunnumi (Prologue) - Trevor Alan Foris
Favourite quote: ‘The Bewitchers.… they... we, well, we have history.’
‘So I gathered. And?'
‘And they scare the living daylights out of me, frankly, give me the heebie-jeebies, sir.’
Thoughts: It’s taken me a while to muster up the, well, courage, really, to pick up this book, scared I was going to ruin the pretty cover! But I finally got round to it and I can’t believe I left it so long!
The Octunnumi is the prettiest and most well thought-out book I’ve ever come across, it comes in the most elaborate packaging, with a list of pronunciations and definitions for the names and words created specifically for the world within this book! This book, of 460 pages, is literally only the prologue, mind-blown! A new book has been released, same story, a little extra content and AR content. There is also a collection of letters from the characters available to purchase! Like, how awesome and we’ll thought out is that?!?
The book is a fantasy fiction masterpiece, making it very clear from the offset that the world within this book does not exist, ‘the abilities of the Tarelen peoples with their heightened skills, living in their Utopian world are myth, their purpose here mere tales; rumours of their reincarnations enabling them to live many lives….. ridiculous.’
The plot is quite complicated, especially with all the made up names and words, and needs a thorough reading to really get into it. Full of adventure: having the ability to visit any fairy tale or to go back to any time period you wanted to, that's what the inhabitants of this world are able to do. The two brothers, Reig and Trad take readers on a journey filled with various adventures and humour. There’s then, Trevor, the Narrator, sassy, funny and enlightening. I can’t wait for the next book to be released!

Found this lil guy in my Octunnumi.
I just went through the tag for The Octunnumi and all people are saying is that it looks pretty. Which is true, but has anybody actually read it? I really don't like it so far and was wondering if it gets better 😅
This book is an utter mystery!
Little to no actual reviews, you can only buy it from its own website on preorder, and the blurb gives away nothing!
It’s stunning, and I cannot wait to read it 😍

Read from April 18 to 20.
Finally! I have read the BookTok Gem that is The Octunnumi. If you don’t know, let me fill you in. This is a book whose marketing and PR team has done such an amazing job that people are literally buying this one without knowing what it’s about. People see the unboxings on TikTok or Instagram and click “add to cart” immediately. I was one of those people...Kind of. I also read the description of it on GoodReads and decided to purchase it. The premise of the novel is so mysterious and the packaging is incredible so it’s quick to draw people in. But the book has less than 10K ratings on GoodReads as of me writing my review. A damn shame.
The Octunnumi Fosbit Files Prologue by Trevor Alan Foris is an Adult Fantasy/Absurdist novel. Proof to me that this book fits in with the Absurdist category? There are three characters who help our main characters with something they are doing...those three characters’ names? Og, Og, and Og. Prime example for you right there. The synopsis doesn’t really give anything away so if you don’t want to know more about the novel then turn back now. The novel is about this secret organization called the Octunnumi with a tragic past. During this book, the organization faces a schism and a lot of badness ensues. However, the plot of this book is not the point of this book....if we’re being honest. The point of the book is to introduce the reader into an amazing and fantastical world that feels unending. Imagine when Harry first experiences Diagon Alley for the first time and all the magic and wonder he feels....and The Octunnumi is like that, plus cocaine, plus steroids. It is so much weirder and grosser and funnier. It has been so much fun to read.
The only real downside I had when reading this book was how much work it required from me. It has a Pronunciation Guide and a Dictionary for all these new words. And you need it when you read this novel. I think the novel is totally worth the work, but if you don’t enjoy reading things that take effort then this is completely not for you. There is a very handy app that you can download as well which I used every time I came up on a new word. There are pronunciation clips for nearly every new word. The Augmented Reality aspect of the app didn’t work very well for me which was a little sad, but you can’t have everything I guess. The app also had some book trailers which were pretty funny to watch.
I think this is a great book for anyone who enjoys absurdist literature and Fantasy that doesn’t take itself too seriously. I had a lot of fun reading it and I think upon a reread I would most likely rate this book higher as I would be more familiar with the world and it wouldn’t take quite as much effort from me. So glad I was able to read this TikTok Gem.
