Summary

Fourteen-year-old cousins Gwen and Vic have lived together ever since the mysterious deaths of Gwen's parents and the disappearance of Vic's mother. But Vic's scientist father accidentally transports them through a magical crystal door to the island of Elantya. Cobblestone streets and silver towers mark the picturesque island, a trading hub and center of knowledge that runs on advanced physics and sorcery. Vic and Gwen are soon caught in a tempest of ancient magic, vicious creatures, fierce battles, and a territorial feud with the sea-dwelling Merlons.

wanna be

cookie cutter book, tries to hard to appeal to the teens or tweens. probably would have liked it better, but the auther was annoying to listen to. His reading doesn't flow very well in some areas, and it's like he's trying to talk like a kid. I mean I know it's a kid book, but you can speak normaly. but mabe I'm being too judge mental, I only bought it because it was on sale for like $4, and I enjoy a good fantasy occasionaly, which this was not.

Could be better but it's acceptable entertainment

I love trilogies or any story that continues. I enjoyed the characters of these books but what I had a problem with was the word similarities in things such as Lavasha = Lava, or Affirique which has similar properties to Africa. To me it sounded like the story was created and to make it a little different, they changed words to equal something similar to the English language so there would be no mistaking what it actually was. A good story will have a unique name of an object, and explain what it is so the reader learns and remembers this, but this seemed a little forced. Where is the creativity in another language for another world not a parallel universe ya know?

The other problem I had was the reader had a tendency to be finished with a sentence before the sentence was finished. His annunciation was really terrible at times. He did a good job with making each character have a certain voice or inflection which I enjoyed, but overall, it was an ok story and narration, not one that i'll go listening to over and over.
