Lovers of Paranormal Review - Immagica by K.A. Last

Where anything is possible.
Enter at your own risk.

The night before her fifteenth birthday, Rosaline Clayton uncovers a deep family secret. She receives an amulet from her deranged father, and he tells her she must find the book in order to save him. Rosaline is used to her dad not making any sense, so she dismisses their conversation as another of his crazy rants.

When Rosaline’s brother, Elliot, drags her to their Nana’s attic to explore, they find the old leather-bound book tucked away in a chest. It sucks them into its pages, transporting them to a magical world. Along the way Rosaline and Elliot are separated, and the only thing she wants is to find her brother and go home.

The creatures of Immagica have other ideas. After years of war their land lies in ruin. Using the amulet’s power, they want Rosaline to defeat the dragon and restore Immagica to its former glory. But Rosaline is bound to Immagica in ways she doesn’t understand, and when she discovers the truth about her family, she must follow her heart to save them all.

Can you say imagination? I am just excited after reading this book! This story is a winner all the way around. I mean I thought that the author hit a home run in Fall For Me but wow! This should be read by millions and made into a movie!

First of all there is the story. I was captivated and felt like I could have been reading C.S. Lewis or Jules Verne. I was amazed by world that was painted for me by the descriptive text in the book. The characters were well balanced and so real as well. I had no problems staying interested in this one at all.

I love the journey and the depth of emotion played out by our MC. Her family were a great mix to read and I loved the edge it had with dear old dad seeming utterly mad. I had a laugh and a cry as well! So that is a big plus for my emotional rollercoaster addiction. LOL I don't want to spoil it but Immagica holds some great characters too. This was an epic journey full on with fantasy creatures that make your imagination soar!

I recommend this one for fantasy lovers and Young Adult readers as well!!
