Sue’s Review –
WOW – this was such an awesome story and had my interest the entire way through!!
The story of Alyssa McCarthy and her discovery of magic was awesome. Her parents died years before and she currently lives with her Uncle and cousin. She decides that she is tired of the uncle (and his mean ways) and wants to move in with her godfather. During the waiting of the legal system to grant her godfather custody, Alyssa is confronted my a magical villain. This villain uses his magic to kidnap Alyssa and take her to the Fiji Islands.
The story has a lot of twists and turns – – and the use of your imagination to visualize some things in the book makes it even better. There are times that I actually pictured myself with Alyssa and the situations she encountered.
I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
