I am a fan of Julie Elizabeth Powell's books, I never quite know what to expect when I pick up one of her books as she writes so many different genres; the one thing I am always sure of though is that I will enjoy the read!
This book is proof of the author's amazing ability to write fantasy novels as if the worlds she is writing of are real places.
I have read the first two books in her Avalon trilogy which I would highly recommend. In this book, we are taken into a different fantasy world: Magei

This book is different than anything I have read to date, and I loved it. Julie is an excellent author who uses her craft to paint vivid stories. In this book she expertly crafts a new world that she draws you into little by little. I had an incredibly tough time putting this book down and flew threw it once I got started with it, and no it is not a short book by any stretch of the imagination. Julie's writing style is pleasant to read and has a perfect pace to it. Never did she rush me or put ...more

I want to start off by saying I am honored to have received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Oh my goodness, I want to know what happens next. There are so many questions that remain at the end of this book, I hope the author writes a sequel. I'm not sure how she would, considering the way this one was written, but I think it's possible, and I want to know the answers to the questions that I have left... like, who else is part of the seven that was saved? Is Jorja really

This is a captivating story! Jorja takes us along on her journey from childhood through her adult years. Some profound issues are explored here, such as the challenges of not fitting in, school bullies, controlling adults, and just what it means to be sane.

Narrated in first person, Jorja tells her story in conversational style. It feels as if she's sharing a magical secret with her readers, inviting us in as her new and trusted confidants.

While this book falls within the fantasy genre, the top

Shelves: adult, audio
This was an interesting book. The writing style and "feel" of the book are very similar to the "Weird" books by the same author. Though this book would be considered fantasy, many of the subjects that the main character, Jorja, addresses as part of her life are very relatable and relevant to real life. I listened to the Audible audio version and thought that the choice of narrator was very fitting to the tale. I could see everything happening in the book in my mind's eye. Though I probably ...more

I LOVED this book. First of I listened to the audiobook version of it and the narration was superb. The voice was so very fitting for the book. It made it feel like someone sat you down to tell you a wonderful tale. Excellent pick on the narrator.
The book itself was told as a tale from and older lady about her life since she was a child. It was very gripping and had me interested from the very start. I listened nonstop until the end. I couldn't wait to find out what had happened next. She told
