Fifteen-year-old Esme Silver’s shock was great when she saw the condition her beloved father was in. She also felt the menace and vindictiveness of her father’s new wife and her sister. Esme had been away for some time – now she knew her father didn’t believe her, and she was in danger of being institutionalized if she remained, so with a heavy heart she returned to the magical world she’d just arrived from – Aeolia.

Her good friends, Daniel and Lillian helped Esme enroll in her new school, which was set on the canals, and although it was school, she enjoyed most of her subjects. Learning to master her Gift with Augustine was special and it wasn’t long before she was able to call it up at will. Her special Gift of travelling back to the past meant she could search for the secrets which could help bring her mother out of the coma she’d been in for a long time. But there was danger lurking. Would Esme find what she needed before it was too late?

Esme’s Gift is the 2nd in the Esme Trilogy by Aussie author Elizabeth Foster and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A follow on from Esme's Wish, it continues in Esperance, in the magical world of Aeolia. The intelligence of the dragons; the various Gifts of all the characters (fascinating) and the book’s cover with Kendra the dragon and Esme on the edge of Mt Asha is beautifully and imaginatively done. Highly recommended.

With thanks to the author for my ARC to read in exchange for an honest review.
