I received an ARC of this book for beta and review purposes.
Vicki Johnstone has a firm grip on the fantasy genre. I loved the characters, the amazing worlds she created, and the idea of facing one's fears in order to move ahead to something better. Not all questions were answered at the end but enough to satisfy me...for now! A delicious brew of invention, enchantment and refreshing characters, Vickie Johnstone has a firm grasp on the fantasy genre. I can't wait to read more of her work! I am looking forward to the next book!

A young woman is struggling to adjust to life after a spinal cord injury when she is given a gift by a mysterious older woman. Rather than merely help Jayne adjust to her new reality, this gifts offers the potential of a completely alternate existence. Jayne finds her true love only to be dealt another cruel blow by fate. In her journey to get back her new life she must face the biggest hurdles any of us can. Our own fears and doubts.

How do you make the incredible credible? It must be enormously helpful to have written an excellent series of children's books based on a magical city where cats behave like human citizens. The Sea Inside is a young adult fantasy adventure which, like the Kiwi series takes the reader on a visit to a fantastic realm. It successfully takes us from the world of childhood fables, in the Kiwi books, to young adult fantasy adventure. Enjoyable and entertaining with subtle moral questions about love, friendship, loyalty, and family.
