Seven years prior, Esme’s mother had vanished, presumed lost at sea. Now her father was remarrying, and fifteen-year-old Esme’s heart fought against it. She didn’t like Penelope and her family – her dominance of her father, and herself made her squirm. But her father had moved on – if only Esme could as well.

When her father left for his honeymoon, Esme decided to continue her quest to find out what had happened to her mother. Ariane had been a beautiful spirit, and Esme missed her fiercely. She caught the ferry out to the island of Spindrift where Ariane had been seen last. It was from there that Esme found herself entrenched deeply into an adventure of the likes she’d never experienced before.

The city of Esperance was a magical place; the dragons overhead and the creatures within the canals that surrounded the city were only a part of what fascinated Esme. When she befriended Daniel and Lillian, the help they gave her in following in her mother’s footsteps was invaluable. But what would happen? Where had Ariane vanished to? Would Esme find the answers she sought – or was she in terrible danger?

Esme’s Wish is 1st in the Esme series, as well as being the debut novel by Aussie author Elizabeth Foster, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The magical fantasy was done in such a believable way, it was easy to visualise the sights Esme was seeing – feel her emotions and fears. I’m really looking forward to Esme’s Gift when it is published early in 2019! Highly recommended to fans of the genre.

With thanks to the author for my copy to read and review.
