The night before her fifteenth birthday, Rosaline Clayton uncovers a deep family secret. She receives an amulet from her deranged father, and he tells her she must find the book in order to save him. Rosaline is used to her dad not making any sense, so she dismisses their conversation as another of his crazy rants.

Immagica surprised me. I read a lot of young adult speculative fiction, but it tends more toward the upper YA to new adult end of the spectrum. With this book’s main character, Rosaline, being fifteen, I thought maybe I’d be a little old for the story.

I should have remembered I loved Harry Potter back when he was a scruffy twelve-year-old. :)

I really enjoyed Immagica. It’s a little bit Alice in Wonderland, a little bit The Wizard of Oz, and a little bit The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. Rosa

Let’s start with the book cover… It’s vivid, Full of colour and imagination the girl on the front is the heroine of the tale, Rosaline, her fiery red hair, her bright green eyes, her emerald amulet and the book with its glowing pages evoke an image that the tale about to unfold is going to be a fantastic journey for the imagination.

The story begins on the Eve of Rosaline and her brother’s birthday ( no they are not twins there are 2 years between them) they are on their way to their Nana Clayton

I've loved books of K. A. Last I've already read, and I was eager to read this new one. From the first page I've found lively characters, who easily became real and alive to me. They made me curious to know more about them and their lives, what led them to this moment and what would happen to them now.

It was very easy to read. Story flowed like a stream of words. I was enjoying it. I enjoyed reading about the adventure of Rosaline, about her meeting new characters, dealing with challenges, gett

Can you say imagination? I am just excited after reading this book! This story is a winner all the way around. I mean I thought that the author hit a home run in Fall For Me but wow! This should be read by millions and made into a movie!

First of all there is the story. I was captivated and felt like I could have been reading C.S. Lewis or Jules Verne. I was amazed by world that was painted for me by the descriptive text in the book. The characters were well balanced and so real as well. I had n

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

This is definitely a fun and exciting read! It may look like more suitable for younger readers, but it appeals to me just right. I love the characters, especially Ira, Brynn and Sebille. There may be some parts that lacks excitement, that I almost want to skip some pages. Also, it would have been much better if there is more character development between Lex and Rosaline. But overall, the plot and characters make
Wow, I’m not even sure where to start this review. The story of Immagica is awesome beyond words!

Rosaline and her brother, Elliot, arrive at their Nana’s house with their parents to celebrate their birthday. They aren’t twins, but they do share the date (just like two of my kids!). They don’t seem particularly happy about having to spend their special day at their Nana’s house. We quickly learn that Rosaline’s mum is the type of person you don’t wish on your worst enemy and her dad is a bit off

I received a free copy, through LoP, in exchange for a review.

Birthdays are hard enough, but when it's both your birthday and that of your brother & your family is a little left of center, then it's a whole different experience. Rosaline & her brother Elliot are at a turning point in their lives, not just because it is their birthdays, but they both uncover a deeply, hidden family secret. A secret so huge, that they cannot believe that it true. There is a whole other world, that they are

***This book was reviewed for Reader's Favourite***

Immagica, by KA Last, is a story all of a piece with those such as Alice in Wonderland, The Chronicles of Narnia, Inkheart, The Neverending Story, and Labyrinth. It is the story of Rosaline, a young girl whose family houses secrets unimaginable, both dark and light-hearted.

On her fifteenth birthday, Rosaline learns she has an uncle she never knew about, she’s not who she thinks she is, and her family is guardian to a wondrous realm known as Imm

I was gifted an ebook copy from the author in return for an honest review.

The last thing Rosaline Clayton expects for her birthday is a strange amulet from her crazy father, which transports her and her brother Elior into a world where imagination something can make it real. However, Elior is missing... and Rosaline is sent on a quest not only to find him, but to stop Immagica from being destroyed by a hate-filled dragon. Nothing makes sense... but anything is possible.

I am glad a requested this from the author to review. I quite enjoyed this book.

The story was cute and the characters had good development throughout the book, as did the relationships that were formed between them. It was pretty easy to connect to the characters and like all of them, even the evil ones. It was nice to be able to connect with characters so easily.

It was also filled with good life lessons, such as love others, ladies shouldn't swear and have an imagination.

This is a great YA fantasy read. There are so many things happening in this book. You get to see a world of make believe with with magical creatures.

Rosaline and Elliot Clayton are brother and sister and share the same birthday. The only thing is, is they aren't twins. You get to see how their parents and how they interact with their children. The mom reminded me of a wicked witch and the father was like the nutty professor. To

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (Lop or Lovers of Paranormal).

Immagica was a refreshing read but I have to admit by mid-read I felt too old for the book since I had already guessed the ending. I was off by one small bit which was a little disappointing because it was the main reason I was rooting for the book; the two wonderful strong female heroes who I hoped would save themselves and save the day. I was partially vindicated. I love the fact that the book opens the reader

Upon the eve of her 15th birthday Rosaline Clayton received a surprise gift from her father, it was an amulet that holds the key to the world of Immagica. Thus starts Rosaline’s journey to the highly imaginative world that was created by her family generations ago. From the very beginning K.A. Last struck me as a vividly descriptive writer. The real everyday world and Immagica were both well formed and easy to follow,The story was cleverly creative and full of imagination. At times scenes in Imm ...more

I loved Immagica! It took me back to the days when Narnia and the wardrobe held endless possibilities of wonder and excitement.

While this book is aimed at a slightly younger audience than Last's previous works (Fall For Me, Sacrifice) I really think she captured the enthusiasm and determination of the audience.

Immagica tells the story of Rosaline, a teen girl who has to save her brother when he disappears to a world long-connected to his family: the world of Immagica. What happens next is a wh

This really is a thoroughly enjoyable book. I was given a free copy of the book via Lovers of Paranormal, in exchange for an honest review. To be honest though I wouldn't have felt at all disappointed if I had paid for a copy.

It hit the spot in terms of magical creatures and folk - all of which are so well written that they seemed completely real. I loved Ira, the Unicorn, and the dragon was wonderfully described - and, to me at least, was just how I would imagine it to be!

I am ten and I loved Immagica.

It is an exciting book that I found very hard to stop reading. From the fairy glades to the barren lands to the north tower, the world is full of imagination. Immagica reminded me of reading the Chronicles of Narnia and Alice in Wonderland.

Ira is the most beautiful creature and I loved him so much. Brynn is a strong willed character. It's a good book and I really loved it.

K.A Last wrote a book that I will read again and again.

This book is really great I loved it. I am a huge fan of Dragon books. This book opens your mind to your imagination and takes you on a wonderful adventure it was like I was a kid again dreaming about me being a princess and I was talking to unicorns and fighting dragons. I loved every minute of this book I can't wait to read more from this author.I received this book in exchange for an honest review from LOP.

Immagica is a wonderful tale about magic and believing in one's self. I loved all the characters, good and bad. I particularly loved the world Kim has created. I recommend this to all fantasy lovers or to anyone looking for a bit of magic in their lives so they can escape the real world for a little while.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)

Immagica was a fun story. Its not a really unique concept (Chronicles of Narnia and other stories resemble it) but it takes that plotline and adds new twists to it.

The main character, Rosaline, is spirited and loves her little brother Elliot. She was easy to cheer for, and I liked her a lot. Her family situation isn't the best, and she doesn't know exactly why; but discovers the reason and a whole lot more in Imm

Let me just state firstly how much I LOVED this book. I sat with my 7 and 2 year old daughters every night before bedtime for a week reading this with them. I can’t thank K.A. Last for writing this book, and for the countless hours I have spent talking my daughters about the characters in this book. You have all the right elements:

1. Young girl coming of age
2. Magical world and
3. Magical creatures
4. An EPIC journey to save the world from destruction.

I am not ashamed to admit I enjoyed this book
