When the Unelmoija and her sister dropped Ernie off at Harry’s house near Portland, Maine before vanishing into time, they hoped to give him a fresh start. Unfortunately, Ernie, a lanky shy man with a natural gift for technology and gadgets enhanced by his superhuman Weeia abilities, fell in with the wrong crowd. Left holding the bag for a crime he did not commit, Ernie is ...more

It takes a special talent to pull off carrying on a series minus the main character, especially when that character was written to be an amazing person. Elle Boca has done it with In the Garden of Weeia. A techno geek gets a second chance at a good life, but his abilities make him fair game for trouble and the wrong choices lead Ernie on a downhill slide to the wrong side of the law. Ernie is always up for a good challenge, but this may be one challenge he should pass on. Re-enter the world of t ...more

Thanks to Elle Boca for giving me this book to review.

Ernie has been given a fresh start but he has fallen in with a wrong crowd. When he has been charged with a crime he didn’t commit, Ernie is sentenced to do grub duty at the Marshals academy for a year. He tries to keep his head down but he cannot resist a challenge and gets swept up in a sinister plot which could cost him his life.

In the Garden of Weeia is the enjoyable spin-off novella set after the events of the Weeia series. It is fast pa

This is a light weight novella, which I think is aimed primarily at secondary school level. That doesn’t mean that adults that enjoy Hogwarts and Narnia won’t enjoy reading about Weeia. The lively little story kept me well entertained, though this sort of fantasy is no longer exactly my thing. I would have been a very enthusiastic reader it my early teens.
There is certainly some originality in Boca’s characters and at least in this book their superpowers are kept almost in the bounds of the poss

Fans of Boca's Weeia series (myself included) will be relieved to learn that the story continues, albeit without Amy - aka the Unlemoija. This new story features Ernie, the wiz-kid who got a second chance at life, courtesy of Amy.

To be honest, when I learned that Boca was continuing her series, I was apprehensive. I could not fathom how the story could go on without Unelmoija. Feels like Star Wars without Yoda.

Thankfully, pull it off Boca did.

As I read, I gradually stopped thinking of Amy. Inste

I liked the idea of an academy and the justice system that was in place for the Weeia. Like our own it's a bit flawed but serves the basic purpose to protect people. I learned a bit more about their weaknesses and it was cool to see it from Ernie's perspective.

It wasn't long ago that I'd read the first in the series "Unelmoija: The Dreamshifter". It was a decent start with an imaginative species of

In the Garden of Weeia by Elle Boca is a novella length story centered around Ernie, a secondary character in the previous Weeia Series (Unelmoija).

When the last book of the Weeia Series ended, I was sad that the series was complete and still hungry for more. Thankfully, Ms. Boca delivered with this wonderful offering that makes a lovely addition to the Weeia Series.

I do miss Amy and the rest of the Weeia from the previous books. However, I found myself getting very engrossed in this new story w

Ernie Satuan is a Weeia, which means he has superhuman abilities. In his case, those abilities pertain to technology and gadgets. Though he is smart, he is a bit too trusting. When he puts his faith in the wrong people, he finds himself punished for a crime he did not commit. He is sent to perform grub work at the Marshals’ Academy, which is similar to being sentenced to military service. Even there, his talents get him in trouble on more than one occasion. He sets about to try and outsmart meas ...more

I know this sounds like an odd way to start a review but I’ll do it anyway; The Garden of Weeia was confusing to me because I’m not sure why it was written and why I’m supposed to like it. Usually it’s pretty clear; an author might focus on character development or world building or just a straight up classically good plot. So usually when I review a book I can point at what the author was trying to do and applaud how they did it, or proclaim it not for me and move on.

Is it that I’m supposed to

Interesting alternate reality

Fun light read. Two humanoid species, humans and the weeia. One is hidden among us and has special powers, their own schools and government.

I was worried I wasn't going to like this book because my favorite characters weren't going to be in it but I still liked it. I came to know weeia, as Duncan and Amy but I was so glad to hear that there was a little more to the story. I wasn't quite finished being in the land of weeia yet. This is a novella, spin-off from The unelmoija series. It was fast paced, short and a fun read.

Poor Ernie, his weeia abilities always seem to get him trouble. He gets punished for a crime he didn't commit and

'In the Garden of Weeia' is a novella spin-off from Boca's Weeia series, featuring interesting new character Ernie.

I found this a quick and enjoyable read, with a character who was almost instantly likeable. It's the start of a new and intriguing storyline in Boca's world of super-humans with fantastical powers.

The Marshals Academy was a cool addition to the world of Weeia. I liked that Ernie's story was drastically different from Boca's previous main character Amy. The story was really fresh y
