I just finished reading the first book for 2020. So now it is the time for the review.
Thanking the author, for sending a free copy of the eBook, in exchange for an honest review.
Esme’s Wish by Elizabeth Foster
When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver objects at her father’s wedding, her protest is dismissed as the action of a stubborn, selfish teenager. Everyone else has accepted the loss of Esme’s mother, Ariane – so why can’t she?
But Esme is suspicious. She is sure that others are covering up the real reason for her mother’s disappearance – that ‘lost at sea’ is code for something more terrible, something she has a right to know.
After Esme is accidentally swept into the enchanted world of Aeolia, the truth begins to unfold. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother’s steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane’s double life. But the more Esme discovers about her mother, the more she questions whether she really knew her at all.
Esme, a fifteen year old girl, whose mother has disappeared 7 years back. Her father is now married again, but Esme does not like Penelope, her new stepmom. Esme constantly keeps on searching for her mother, when one day suddenly she is carried away into the sea, to another world, which is called Aeolia.
The author uses descriptive language to speak about this new world. While reading the book, it reminded me a lot about Harry Potter, Narnia and Percy Jackson series. The world is filled with dragons, hidden magic, different creatures etc. I really enjoyed reading all the adventures of Esme in Aeolia. The setting and the characters were created carefully and the authors writing style makes the story move smoothly.
The only question I had while reading was that, will Esme be able to find her mother. It was super exciting. I was completely into it, and was waiting till I reach the end. It is an exceptional Young Adult Book. Had so much fun reading and reviewing the book. Looking forward to reading the sequel!
4/5 (Stars) Exceptional
