5☆ A Heartwarming and Enchanting read. I fell in Love with Akea

Akea is a beautifully compelling children's story about family, being different, fitting in and Love.
The Cover is gorgeous is just draws me in. There is something very magical and calming about huskys.

I can't tell you how much I adored reading this short story.
I love huskys and wolf's so I knew this book was going to be special and I wasn't wrong.
Huskys hold a very special place in my heart.

I don't want to delve too much into the

Have you ever considered what it actually means to be "different"?  To step outside the norms of society and truly be yourself, despite the sideways glances, outright disapproval and criticism which may inevitably follow.  To be true to one's self undoubtedly requires a fair degree of courage and fortitude.  A willingness to persevere despite overwhelming odds.  Now apply this concept to the animal kingdom.  You will find that it is not really that much different.  Various groups of animals have ...more

From the moment she was born into her husky family, her father Kelleher knew Akea was different. She somehow stood out from the rest of the litter even though Kelleher didnt know why. He only knew she was special. As the pups grew and were able to play outside, a lone wolf appeared on several occasions and watched from a distance. Akea was intrigued and felt drawn to the wolf, despite the firm warnings to stay away from her parents.

'Akea would always scan the edge of the woods in case the wolf

The story is well written, it was easy to follow and I liked the combination of wolf and husky characters. The story is very engaging and I loved the setting and the pace of the story too.

Born into a family of huskies, Akea soon realises that she is no ordinary dog. When the wolf Kazakh begins to visit her, Akea feels strangely drawn towards him and the wolfpack.

Elizabeth Jade is a young author who has a talent for writing stories. She has created a sensitive and heartening story that reminded me a lot of Jack Londons Call of the Wild. Her writing style is fresh and thoughtful with a good feel for plot and character. I loved the story arc, the language of the huskies and wolves,

This is a lovely book; its an exciting story well suited to the preteen and young teenagers, most any age will appreciate the story. The author has created a believable world around the idea of wolf families. We know that wolves are very intelligent, quite capable of coordinating hunting activities.
I enjoyed the story. It reads well and shows a lot of creativity. The personalities and pack structure are well developed, including having a mythos and something like a religion. I found all of it

I must admit, this is the first story I've read from the POV of a Husky/ Wolf and I absolutely loved it!

Akea is the kind of story that is as captivating for adults as equally as it would be for children. The story is told with lots of plot twists and scenes that tie up splendidly at the end of the book. There is suspense, there is action, there is love - the perfect ingredients for any story.

I'm very impressed with the author's knowledge about Husky pack behaviour and how she really gets into

Akea is a story which features huskies and wolves so I had to share it with my wolf-loving ten year old daughter. She has written her own review which you can find below my thoughts about the book.

Akea - The Power of Destiny is only a short book but there's certainly a lot packed into it! We first meet Akea as a newborn pup; even then her father could tell that she was special although he wasn't sure why. Her early days are straightforward until a wolf appears. Their owner's gun scares it off

I read this on my own to make sure it was suitable for my daughter as she is slightly younger than the target audience of 8-12 year olds, as she is almost 5.  I don't think some bits of it are suitable so had to skip them.  Personally I would say the age recommendation is probably about right as there are some bits which younger children would probably not like much.

The book follows Akea a husky who knows she is different to her siblings and parents.  She doesn't know what until a wolf comes and

This is a children's book, but it's still an interesting story. I loved the illustrations and the cover is gorgeous. I wish the transitions had been a little more elaborate but overall I would recommend this book to anyone in the appropriate age range :)

On the day Akea was born it was clear that she was a special husky. When she sees a wolf in the forest she finds herself drawn to him against her parents wishes. After a fight between Kazakh and Akeas father, Akea leaves with Kazakh. She learns that she has wolf blood in her and is very special. But the path that she is to walk is going to be hard before it gets better.

This is a wonderful story that would delight any kid or parent. I love hoe Akea is special and although she has challenges ahead

A short yet satisfying tale about finding your own destiny and being true to your nature.
Akea was special from the moment she was born. She had obstacles to overcome but she never gave up.

I really enjoyed this book. I heard about this book on Facebook, Ideas4writers. The author's mother was letting people know that her daughter's book was for sale on Amazon.

The author, is only 14, but that is not to say this book is just for kids, I loved this story. It had several twists that I did not see coming.

There were some grammatical errors, but they did not bother me as I read page after page.

Elizabeth Jade, in my opinion, is an author to watch.

Considering how stripped back the writing & plot of this book is, I thoroughly enjoyed it - I found myself engrossed in the story from the outset & before I knew it Id finished it. Other than one scene that I felt was a little inappropriate, this book is great for young readers that have a love of a snow dogs & wolves.

I was sent this book by a blog tour organiser in return for an honest review.

Akea was an great adventure story, complete with fantastic illustrations.
I loved reading Akea's adventures, and her adventures.
Of course, my opinion is of course biased from my life-long love affair with Huskies and Wolves.
This book is full of both!
I look forward to sharing this story with my children, which is of course the best review I can give any title.

Akea - The Power of Destiny is a children's book. It is recommend for children between the ages of 8 - 12 years of age. Akea is half wolf and half husky. What does it mean to be husky? How does being wolf  sit with that? So there is a search for identity. Destiny is also connected to this search.

The book starts by Akea being named. Akea is a strong female and she soon needs to make the choices that lead her in her search for her destiny. There are others that are instrumental in this

Lovely read!

I enjoyed reading this short children's story. I've found it via Book Connectors group in Facebook. And I'm glad I read this.

This story is about a husky Akea, who's intrigued by the strange wolf that often visits her. When she learns her owner is going to sell her, she takes off into the forest to be with the strange wolf.

There she learns her connection with the wolves and trains hard to become a part of them. But turns of events isn't favorable for her. She must fight against the

Wow what an epic journey in such a short time, this book is truly amazing. The characters are varied and the atmosphere of the book is a good range. This goes to show that, the things that make us different are the things that propel us forward. Truly magnificent.

Written by the then fourteen year old Elizabeth Jade, Akea is a powerful story written with a wondrous sense of reverence. A tale
that's bound to attract all animal lovers but is particularly appealing to its target audience of eight to ten year olds. Parents of younger particularly sensitive children might want to give the book a read through first as there are one or two darker scenes that though handled extremely sensitively and in the main are largely hinted at rather than too graphic might

Akea- The Power of Destiny is a short book that can easily be read in an hour or so, but what an enjoyable hour it will be. I loved the story of Akea, a working husky who unknowing to her, also has some wolf in her.

I really dont want to give the story away but what you will get is a wonderful story of love and friendship and loyalty, but also about being ourselves.

I gave Akea to my nieces to read, they are nine and ten. The ten year old felt that she was too old for the book, but shes at that

It still surprises me that I wrote this. It's so hard to put down once you start reading. There are some unexpected plot twists and the dramatic readings videos really give you a touch of atmosphere when reading the actual book. I'm busy working on editing book two.
