Product Description

Product Description

Meet young Holly Silverstone, the girl who sees daisies turn to butterflies ... who dreams of places that she has never been to ... who is invited to study at the elusive and enchanting Highlands Academy of truth and excellence.

The voices will come, one-thousand and one, the voices will come. Fear is the key, fear to see. The voices will come, one-thousand and one, the voices will come.

As Holly took a sip of her tea and held the piece of paper between her fingers, veins of ink slowly crept across the paper. She wanted to drop it and scream … yet a more powerful part of her made the fingers on her hands grasp the letter even tighter and her eyes open wider.
The ink seeped and whirled around, forming words;

We have a question for you, Holly.
Do you want to know how the daisies turned to butterflies?

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! Highly Recommended 29 Nov 2012
By Zed
Format:Kindle Edition
I have just finished reading 'Shadow & Voices' by the very talented Jason Ellis. 'Shadow' is a trending book title but I stress now that you Must remember Shadows & Voices, because this book is definitely worth a try.

*Spoiler Alert*
Holly Silverstone has been accepted at The Highlands Academy of Truth and Excellence, which is only 15 minutes away from her home. Yet, Holly nor her family, have ever known of its existence before Holly received her interview letter, if you can call it that. The letter was written in ink that just... appeared! What's even more strange is that when Holly visits this Academy, it has the same blue door that she dreamt about. And they know about the butterflies.. How can they know about the butterflies?

Packed with adventure, mystery and thought provoking ideas, this book involves you into Obscura (the 'hidden world'), mysteries surrounding the shadows and the most entertaining masked Geography teacher, Miss Ovissa Slater.

Shadow & Voices had me engaged right from the first chapter and I am disappointed in myself for finishing the story already. I want to know more about the shadows, the doors, the different worlds and most of all, I want to read more scenes with Ovissa and her unfortunate luck in attracting trouble!

Everyone, listen carefully. Jason Ellis is of the few that can create a bright spark in a mundane world. Watch out for him and give Shadow & Voices a read .You will see the world with a different eye.

5.0 out of 5 stars Funny and unique 30 Sep 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I received this book as a gift from the author in return of a honest review.Thank you,Jason!
When I first read about "Shadows&Voices" I was ver y excited about it.The blurb sounded bery good,and when Jay contacted me and asked me if I wanna read it and review it,I accepted immediately!
I loved this book!It has everything it need for a good book!Mystery,suspanse,fantasy,magic and a little bit of thriller.
I loved the characters very much.Holly is lovely-she is 12 years old,a good sense in humor and she loves mysteries.Ovissa is also a lovely lady,I love her so much!She is such a good persona and something about her makes you love her.The characters are very well descirbed and created,and that's why I love them!
The athmosphere reminded me of "Harry Potter".Actually,the plot is a little like in Harry Potter and that is awesome,because I love Harry Potter so much!!
Jay knows how to describe something.He gives you exactly the detalies you need so you can form an image in your head.I also liked that Jay choosed to tell the story in multiple story lines.This means that one chapters is happening in the Seen World,and the other chapter is in the Unseen World of Ovissa.
This book has a huge amount of suspanse and I found also a little bit of thriller.In some parts I was so scared and I thought "OMG!I can't read anymore" but the great story line and the curiosity kept me reading.
This is a story that all the fans of Harry Potter will enjoy!You will love Holy and the word of Obscura,belive me!
Holy is a normal 12-years-old girl.Oh,sorry,did I just say normal?'Cause sorry,but she is not so normal.She can see things that not all of us can see.Some kind of butterflies,she thinks,but in fact they are fairies.

The Review
WOW, Can I please live in Holly's new world, I would love to have a door like hers in my bedroom anyway enough of that, don't want any spoilers do we? I just love how the author has written this book it did jump a little bit in the beginning but then you get to know the characters quicker which was great, I really loved it, it helped the story to flow just like water down a stream, , I loved all the intricate details in each of the characters, the places they visited, the magic that was created, The author really did an excellent job, it was very well written, Holly the main character was your typical girl until she receives an invite to a very prestigious school, this would change her life forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely entertainment 1 Mar 2013
By ChristophFischerBooks TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
"Shadows and Voices" by Jason Ellis is a lovely book in the mystery/ fantasy genre for young adults. 11 1/2 year old Holly Silverstone receives a mysterious letter whose content changes and 'speaks' to her. Soon she is invited to the Highland Academy, where she is taught about the seen world and the obscura (unseen) world - and about the doorways in between the two.
While Holly makes friends and settles in the place she acquires magic skills but also helps solving the riddle around several mysterious disappearances, particularly that of her geography teacher Avissa Slater.
Holly is a great character, very likeable and quite unique; the story is great fun and very well told. It kept my interest up throughout - despite me being an adult.
There are several short stories at the beginning of the book, introducing the theme of a fight between two evil characters, a huge black bear like creature and Holly's first contact with magic in the garden of her neighbours, introducing the reader to the fine line between reality and imagination and the issue of trusting one's inner voice. It would be difficult for me to judge how age appropriate the book is for young adults but for me, who could not even get through the first Harry Potter book it was a real treat to find such an enjoyable offering in that category.
I am sure now that the character is established the next instalments will be as much fun as this first one.
