This is the third book in the Amelia Maylock series for young ad
This is the third book in the Amelia Maylock series for young adults (age range 9 to 14). I absolutely loved it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Amelia Maylock is a fantastic character. Her powers are growing and she is growing in confidence too. I thoroughly enjoyed watching her trying to live as a normal teenager whilst fighting the Maratlus and her evil twin sister, Erryaz. It's not easy - I am a bit in awe of her!
This story carries on from the end of the second book. I was completely hooked from the first page. The mystery surrounding the "friendly voice" that Amelia hears has been revealed to a point (his name is still a mystery), and Anin, Ferul, Ral are still in a state of stasis. However, all that is about to change when danger threatens. Erryaz is still trying to find the missing gems, and Amelia is in a race to find them before she does. There are a few new dimensions to travel to, and new friends and foes to meet. There are also a few twists and turns that surprised me. One of them being the appearance of Ysmirao and her gift to Amelia. I would love to be given that gift! Unfortunately, there is also a traitor in their midst, and Amelia and the gang have to find out who it is.
This story has a blend of fantasy, magic and reality that will appeal to young readers and keep them entertained. I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series to find out what happens next!
Jason Ellis has written an exciting YA fantasy/adventure series that will keep youngsters hooked from the first page! I love his writing style, which is fast paced and flows beautifully. This author is on my Favourite Authors list.
I highly recommend this book (and series) to not only boys and girls aged between 9 to 14, but to adults who love the younger YA genre. - Lynn Worton
