Twinning (def: the coupling of two persons or things; union) Ghostly, magical characters along with ghostly, magical atmosphere define this book.
The author, Rose M Channing has you hooked right at the beginning, wondering who these twins, Ellie and Savannah, are and where they come from.
As they travel back to the magical land of their birth, an alternative world, through the shadow cave, things become quite mysterious although they know they are destined for something out of the ordinary. They embrace their magical talents and set out to find the secret to restore balance to their world. Their travels take them deep into the mansion to find the center of magic and solve the mystery of the blank pages in the book.
There is a long list of characters to keep track of and may not be played out completely in this book, however, some play a part in the history of the magical world that is revealed and others may be incidental at this time. The switching back from the adventure to the characters may be a bit hard to follow.
This book is a magical experience. It is something a young read would enjoy as it takes you to a magical place where many strange things occur. The creation of atmosphere and characters takes you to a surreal place in your mind wanting to know more with each chapter.
The relationship the twins have with each other even though they are strangely different and the relationship they have to the magical land of their birth even though they need more answers, keep this story interesting.
Will they go back to the other world in book two? Will they take the magic with them? Will others join them? All questions that the reader will ask when finished.
“I know. We really did it. Remember when we first came here? And we had no idea we could do magic at all?”
A beautiful, magical world has been ravaged by a terrible storm. Homes were destroyed, families torn apart, and even the sweetest magic twisted by darkness. Even years later, the world remains damaged, unbalanced, and dangerous, waiting for someone who might restore what was lost. Only the magic of twins has a chance, but the birth of twins is exceedingly rare.
In our own world, Ellie and Savannah know nothing of this. They know nothing of other worlds, magic, or even each other. Until magic blooms inside, them and draws them together. After years of feeling alone, raised apart and in the wrong world, the twin sisters are reunited at last. They find their way home, and discover their destiny.
The girls are welcomed into a grand mansion, the safest place in the aftermath of the storm. There, they learn who they are and what they have to do. To restore the world, they must travel through the mansion to the center of magic and reset the balance.
They discover their magical abilities, find joy and friendship in the mansion’s family, and face the dangers of the storm’s left-behind magic. The journey to the center of magic is full of twists and turns, magic and excitement. Ellie and Savannah support each other to overcome obstacles along the way, knowing the whole world is depending on them.
