EMILY'S TRIAL is the second book in the "Akasha Chronicles" after Emily's House (The Akasha Chronicles)
Another great read in the growing series by Natalie. Well written with lots of suspense that kept me on the edge. The characters are becoming so real with wonderful descriptive action. Can't wait until the next in the series.
This is another gripping fantasy adventure with Emily and her 2 friends, Fanny and Jake, away in Netherworld. The journey begins with a high school prank and ends with the death of a new friend. Emily must make some hard choices in order to stop the Apocalypse she started, while the Goddess Brighid is imprisoned and helpless.
A well-written and captivating story. Highly recommended.

I was pleasantly surprised by this 2nd installment in the Akasha Chronicles series. We got to meet Emily in Emily’s House first (book 1), then we get this great adventure. I really enjoyed this book, I will say I liked it a lot more than the first book. Not that I didn’t enjoy the first one, but she is only 14 in that book, and I have a hard time relating to children that go off an do stuff that I can’t believe, like taking off to Ireland alone, with no adults, from America, sorry, just not happening, getting on a plane, and her one friend, Jake “borrowed” a passport, as he didn’t have one, and was able to convince them at the airline he was 18 and he is a small 14 year old? Yeah, didn’t believe that. BUT, in this book, its 2 years later, and this was a lot easier for me to relate to, and believe.
In this book, like I said, its 2 years later from when she first learned of being the descendant of a Celtic Priestess, meaning she is one now herself. We have some major adventures in this book, and she now has some really awesome powers. I will try to not say too much, so I won’t spoil anything from the first book Emily’s House.
I love the worldbuilding and imagery Natalie does with this story, it pulls you in, and you feel like you are there in the story with them. I love how we get to see how much Emily and her friends have grown so much, and really just get to know them.
This whole series is full of fun magick, faeries, sprites, you name it, we have it all, just about. I love it all. I fell in love with this world, like I did with the Iron Fey series I love so much. It gives me the feel good feeling when I step into this world in the same way the Iron Fey did. Don’t get me wrong, they are not alike or anything, just similar in the feel with the fey and all.
I was sure on the edge of my seat at times, as I got about halfway, when some major manipulation by the enemy happens for Emily to possibly loose her friends; I felt her fear and pain. It sure was suspenseful.
I highly recommend this series. It’s easy and fun to read, I know younger teens will really connect, but is still fun for all ages. Very well written.
5 out of 5 stars for me.
I received a complimentary copy of this book for a book tour with Reading Addiction Virtual Blog Tours.

"Emily's Trial" is the second book in the Akasha Chronicles and continues where "Emily's Home" left off. Filled with magick you can not help but finish reading the book till your done. I love how Emily's character grows and look forward to more. You really need to read "Emily's Home" first in order to see who they are and how each character develops. *5 Stars*
