My grandchildren aged 5 and 8 enjoyed Aggie's story very much - and so did I! The story has many positives and I would like to highlight a few. Firstly, Susan Navas immediately draws little curious minds right into the plot - Aggie has a mysterious bracelet, her mother 'died' when she was 3 (they quickly made the sum that since she's 10, Aggie has been without her mom for 7 years!) - a very long time for children. Secondly, the scene is so well described and set for an adventure to begin, when Aggie, who sits and daydreams suddenly gets pulled into the water, thirdly, the plot is moved at a very steady pace - inside the cave an upright fish addresses Aggie as Agnil - obviously no fish at all and so forth. Fourthly, they loved the characters' names - even Aggie has two names, the elf (fish) with the strange name of Garallil, the evil wizard Vedron and of course The Princess Estil. Fifthly, I personally thought the silver platter was a great way of showing, rather than telling; setting a very descriptive scene for the rest of the story; the light and darkness which highlight the danger of the situation - again easily understood by my grandchildren - all important aspects in children's literature. By the second chapter we were well and truly hooked, because Aggie realised that her mom is alive, but that great danger awaits her should she listen to Garallil and help them to free their worlds. I would love to carry on, but I fear that I might reveal too much of the plot. One further positive I would like to mention is the flowing dialogue and natural use of language - not too complicated, but certainly at a most acceptable level for younger readers. (My granddaughter is 8 and she'll re-read some of the story to her younger brother).Read more ›

I love this book and can't wait to read the next instalment. The mix of modern life and wizards and elves makes the story interesting and magical. I want learn more about the characters and discover if it is possible for Agnil's family to be reunited. Lovely illustrations too.

I bought the Kindle edition of this book out of curiosity. I'm a little out of practice reading children's fiction, but I believe that it should be attractive to readers of any age and this book certainly is. Intended for 7-10 year-olds, it has all the components of a good story.

I particularly like the setup of Agnil's usual world, followed by an incident that quickly gets the motor of the story running. Then she's in a another place, with strange people, danger, and important decisions to make. The pacing is excellent.

Also of note is the enhancement provided by Charlotte Moore's illustrations, and the excerpt for the next book leaves the reader wanting more.

What a wonderful world Ms Navas has created here - shape-shifting elves, magic rivers, an unexpected trout, and an evil wizard intent on destroying laughter and colour and replacing them with slime and the smell of rotten eggs! Think Narnia and The Hobbit, but with more charm and fun than either. Perfectly geared to 7 - 10 year olds: Tolkien for under teens!

What better quest could there be for a child, than one to rescue her own lost mother?
Agnil is a likeable main character and one young readers will readily identify with. When she discovers that her mother is still alive and she is the only one who can defeat the evil wizard, the young girl agrees to take on the dangerous quest.
I think this book is also suitable as a story to be read out loud to younger children (especially as grown-ups are likely to enjoy it too!) Highly recommended.

The Rise of Agnil is hot off the press! A clever blend of the everyday modern life of a young girl who doesn't quite fit in and the Elven world where the gaps in her life begin to be explained. With quests and twists along the way, this is a real page turner. Delighted to know the adventure will continue and am already looking forward to exploring more of Agnil's Worlds!

Targeted at 7-10 year olds but anyone with a sense of fantasy and adventure will love this book!

Although the story may be intended for 7 to 10 year olds, I think it's suitable for children of any age.
It's gripping, fast paced, there's magic, elves, a wicked wizard and more.
I'm glad it's the first of a series and I'm looking forward to reading more about 'Aggie' and her adventures.

I bought this book in paperback for my grandson who is 8 - it is winging it's way to the top of his to-read list ;o) In the meantime I decided to read the copy I have on my kindle for myself. I am so glad I did. The Rise of Agnil from the Agnil's Worlds series is absolutely 'enchanting'. The Author, Susan Navas brilliantly captivates the imagination from the beginning of this adventure - I so believe in Aggie (Agnil) the main character. Finding herself fishing by a bank and being transported to another world where unbeknown to her she will be on a dangerous quest to save her mother who has been taken by an evil wizard... Half mortal and half Elven - Agnil's adventure has begun... I do not want to give too much away as I do highly recommend this book. It is, in my opinion very suitable for 7-11 year olds an adventure they can read for themselves or share by having it read to them (I know I will enjoy reading it to/with my grandson) I was so impressed by the way this book is written, the illustrations and the actual feel of the paperback itself that I have bought the other 3 books in the series - A collection that I believe will be treasured.
