When Alyssa is kidnapped by Master Beau, the villain, to the Fiji Islands, she is rescued just in time. In a series of events young Alyssa world changes and the adventures really takeoff.

Alyssa must defeat Master Beau if she ever wants to get home again.An enjoyable read from a debut other. I did struggle with being told what s going on instead of being shown. A little more fluid and less chunky, but overall it was a good magical beginning, and I am excited to read the next book in series.

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
