Not a lot of action but an ok read - no sex or swearing
25 September 2017
Skyla discovers from Ruby that not only isn't Evelyn her birth mother, but that all three of them are
from another world. They travel through a portal to that world to get magic medical help for a dying
Apart from a few short bursts, there was very little action in the book and a lot of dialogue. Skyla (Sky) is
skeptical at first (as you would be!) and questions Ruby about her background and the world she was born
into. There were very few "mythical creatures" and not a lot of magic.
When they meet Henrik (possible romantic interest), Ruby and he spend the whole time bickering, with Sky
trying to keep the peace. Sky needs to find out who her real parents are as nobody is permitted to tell her.
She also needs to travel to her home country of Draken and then find out what her role there will be. She has to
learn to control her dreams and visions of the kidnapped Leo and find a way to rescue him, wherever he is.
Some of these things are achieved in the book, but the rest is being left for the next book in the series.
There was no sex or swearing and it was well written without the many typos I normally notice in other books.
Despite the cover picture there was only a passing mention of dragons which was disappointing.
I think this book would appeal more to teenagers.
