I've loved books of K. A. Last I've already read, and I was eager to read this new one. From the first page I've found lively characters, who easily became real and alive to me. They made me curious to know more about them and their lives, what led them to this moment and what would happen to them now. 

It was very easy to read. Story flowed like a stream of words. I was enjoying it. I enjoyed reading about the adventure of Rosaline, about her meeting new characters, dealing with challenges, getting to know more about the secrets of her family and the world of Immagica. I liked to see how she grows through her journey. As story went on tension builded up, and I was hurrying through the pages anxious to see what's next, what obstacles and dangers characters would have to face, how it would go. And when story got very tense, I was fidgeting in my seat.

I liked the world pictured in here. I enjoyed the idea of Immagica and adventures you can have in there. Actually, I would love to have one myself. This world reminded me a bit of The Neverending Story. After reading Immagica I think I should read that book again and all the other books mentioned in here. I'm always fascinated by the author's imagination and ability to create a new world. 

Now, when this story is finished, I'm eager to know more about the future of the characters, more about their adventures yet to come.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal).

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (Lop or Lovers of Paranormal).

Immagica was a refreshing read but I have to admit by mid-read I felt too old for the book since I had already guessed the ending. I was off by one small bit which was a little disappointing because it was the main reason I was rooting for the book; the two wonderful strong female heroes who I hoped would save themselves and save the day. I was partially vindicated. I love the fact that the book opens the reader to a new world with possibilities of many other adventures which I hope is forthcoming. I would buy the book for a young/teenage family member because there are elements that speak to today’s popular shows in addition to new elements which I feel they would relate too.
I really liked the female hero storyline who stood out because she was tough, loyal and sometimes afraid but she persevered. I hope she inspires young girls everywhere.

Immagica

I received a free copy, through LoP, in exchange for a review.

Birthdays are hard enough, but when it's both your birthday and that of your brother & your family is a little left of center, then it's a whole different experience. Rosaline & her brother Elliot are at a turning point in their lives, not just because it is their birthdays, but they both uncover a deeply, hidden family secret. A secret so huge, that they cannot believe that it true. There is a whole other world, that they are destined to save. When they get transported to this place, they get separated and Rosaline's agenda is to find her brother, not meet the creatures of this universe and help them restore it to it's glory. But, along the way, she starts to understand why she is here and what she needs to do, in order to save Immagica and everything in it.

'Brynn sighed. “Never mind about that now. You may want to find your brother, but your dad is right, you're here for another reason. That amulet goes to the firstborn child on the day they turn fifteen. Immagica is your responsibility. You have magic in your blood, whether you like it or not.”

I got this book, since I thought this would be a fun book to read with my seven year old daughter. Boy was I right on. Adventure, mythical creatures, the ultimate journey is held in this book. My daughter was so excited by it, that I was reading her a few chapters at night, not the one I was planning on. It was well written and obviously had a great story line. Thank you for such a fun experience!

Young adult, Fantasy

Let’s start with the book cover… It’s vivid, Full of colour and imagination the girl on the front is the heroine of the tale, Rosaline, her fiery red hair, her bright green eyes, her emerald amulet and the book with its glowing pages evoke an image that the tale about to unfold is going to be a fantastic journey for the imagination.

The story begins on the Eve of Rosaline and her brother’s birthday ( no they are not twins there are 2 years between them) they are on their way to their Nana Clayton house, Clayton Manor… A sprawling mansion full of secrets…
Both children would rather be home celebrating with their friends but instead they have to spend it with their snobby cousins and distant relatives.

Things go from bad to worse at dinner, and after Rosaline loses her temper and tells her mum what she thinks ( I loved the narrative of that passage, especially the peppermint stick part )

After Rosaline and her brother are sent to their bedrooms, Rosaline stays behind and listens at the door… Hearing secrets that shock her to her core and leave her with many unanswered questions.

That night her dad gives her an early birthday present, an Amulet and at midnight she heads up to the attic with her brother who wanted to celebrate his 13th birthday as soon as it arrived, they discover another hidden treasure… The Book… These two items when placed together send Rosaline and her brother into the world of IMMAGICA… Where you will meet a variety of magical creatures.
The characters are well written, my favourite being Ira, the unicorn…who flys!

I could really see this as a movie, and if it did I’d go see it with my Grand kids.

This book reminds me of the Neverending Story, or the Narnia films (sorry but I actually found the original Narnia books boring) IMMAGICA is the type of story that let’s your imagination run wild. It will appeal to children and young adults and even those young at heart… As I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Well done Ms Last, 5 stars.

This is the first book I have read by K A Last, but at the ending of this e-book is a preview of Fall For Me, book 1 of the Tate Chronicles which has peaked my interest so I am off to go find it and download to my Kindle. :D
