I received a free ecopy of this middle grade fantasy story from Aurora Publicity and Kandi J. Wyatt in exchange for an honest review.

Nine year-old Tania has separated from her family after a boating accident. She washes ashore in an unfamiliar woodland area that is populated by creatures called the Skiorians, Terrans, and Avarians. If she ever wants to see her family again, she and her new allies are going to have to trek for days through the magical and dangerous forest on an adventure of a

I am always on the lookout for child appropriate reading, one that allows a child a simple adventure that will fuel their imaginations without fear or monsters and plants the seeds for a love of books that will last a lifetime. JOURNEY FROM SKIORIA by Kandi J. Wyatt is one of those reads that an adult can read with a younger child, a child can read on their own and a family can talk about afterwards. A child doesn’t need the minutest details, they need a story that talks to them at their level. ...more

Tania, a 9-year old girl is shipwrecked in an unfamiliar forest. There she meets Trilicius who is from the land of Skioria who helps her to find her way home.

This sounded like a really magical story from the blurb... I read it despite how I HATE the cover because if it worked it would have been a cute middle grade find...

Here's the thing... There is NOT ONE offensive thing in the entire book. It's not poorly written. It's not written so as to

This is a middle-grade novel about a nine year old girl who is washed overboard in an accident at sea and winds up in a place called Skioria. She meets several kinds of woodland beings who decide to help her get back to where the humans live so she can return to her parents.

Keeping in mind that I am not a middle grader myself - I probably would have enjoyed this story more 20 years ago - I thought it was pretty good. There's a secondary tale woven into the main story that I didn't expect, and

Easily recommending this story to the Middle Grade (MG) level readers. An enjoyable fantasy adventure that can be read by young and older readers alike. The story starts as the main character, Tania is shipwrecked on a distant land following a tragic accident with her family and her own adventure then starts in a magical land where she meets magical creatures and makes new friends throughout all the while trying to find her way back home. It was a lovely story, that I am sure will get children ...more

This book was short and sweet, just 140 pages. The story kicks off with Tania shipwrecked on a land with no recollection of how she got there or where her parents could be. She immediately meets a strange dwarf-like man called Trilicius. He is kind to her and takes her into his home and shows her the land of Skioria, which is a fantasy village connected to other fantasy villages (Avaria and Terra,) which are hidden in our modern world.

Tania soon meets Trilicius' wife and his other

This was a cute story about a young girl who gets separated from her parents on a boating trip and washes up on the shores of a land filled with small folk. Tania's new friends pledge to do everything in their power to take her safely home, but it is a long journey and many dangers lie in their path.

I liked the premise of the story and enjoyed the various characters. It is a light-hearted romp of a tale, and I believe it would be excellent for younger children. I'm fairly certain that my

This was a cute middle grade story with fun, believable characters in an imaginative world. For my tastes, it could have used a bit more action, but as it is, Journey from Skioria is an enjoyable, refreshing little adventure.

The world of Skioria is rich and well-developed: peopled by different races reminiscent of Hobbits and pixies. Skioria itself is a bit like a mix of Lothlorien, Hobbiton, and Narnia - so basically an awesome place to live in.

Sadly, Tania needs to get back to her family, and

I received a copy to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

Kandi J. Wyatt has been one of my favorite authors since I was first introduced to her “Dragon’s Courage” series. She has the ability to suck you in from the very beginning. Her world building is always exquisite. In this book, we meet Tania who falls overboard and wakes up in a strange land with strange people around her. As she travels with her new friend, Trilicius to his home of Skioria, he describes all that

Journey from Skioria follows Tania, a little girl who finds herself shipwrecked in a mysterious land. She quickly makes friends with the tiny inhabitants, and they agree to accompany her safely back to her family. Along the way she experiences the wonders of Skioria and it's neighbors.

What I liked about the story most was Fyrh's story. It had some depth and a good resolution. I also enjoyed some of the lore and tales told by the adults along the journey, but they were still all rather short and

I got this as an ebook for a review from the publishers. It's a nice little story for children. I think many of them will like it. Not so much adults though. There is a lack of the plot and events, the story feels dragged and not much happens. It is more focused on family than adventures or anything like that, which is absolutely fine, but I expected it to be more magical and adventurous than it was. I also felt like there weren't enough descriptions if places or of the creatures who lived in ...more

Wonderful story of friendship and adventure

This was a wonderful story of a group of rather different people coming together and forming a special bond of friendship to help a young girl make her way home. They had to overcome a number of obstacles along the way adding a nice sense of adventure. A very lovely tale for children to enjoy and this adult enjoyed it too.

While this is certainly a good feeling middle grade novel, I found it difficult to connect with Tania (in fact my favorite character may have been her friend). But in general it was a challenge to really feel what the characters were going through. There's also a little bit of suspension of disbelief, which is important not only in fantasy, but also it seems in this middle grade novel about certain elements. All in all, it's a quick read that leaves you with a satisfying ending no doubt!

Even as a young girl, Kandi J Wyatt, had a knack for words. She loved to read them, even if it was on a shampoo bottle! By high school Kandi had learned to put words together on paper to create stories for those she loved. Nowadays, she writes for her kids, whether that's her own five or the hundreds of students she's been lucky to teach. When Kandi's not spinning words to create stories, she's ...more
