Synopsis: What if there was another you, living in another world? Seventeen year old, Dezaray Storm is blamed for the death of her parents, hated by her brother and secluded from her friends, but that doesn’t stop her from believing in magic. Visions of the future, mysterious cloaked figures and a handsome stranger with the ability to teleport, lead to Dezaray tumbling through a portal and into another world where she is mistaken for its most powerful sorceress and saviour. But in a twisted turn of events, the true sorceress ends up lost in our world, wandering the streets of England with a broken device and the whisper of forgotten magic to guide her. The realm of Coldivor is on the brink of war, its enemies grow restless and its shadows have eyes. Only the true sorceress can help tip the scales in their favour and the two girls must trade back before their 18th birthday when the war that could shatter both realities, will rage.
First off the cover is absolutely beautiful for this book, I love it!
I really love the start of the novel. It starts off with such a hard hitting message of abuse, and the emotions that Dezaray goes through was written so well I felt every blow she did emotionally. I definitely wasn’t how I expected the novel to start out, but it worked so well.
The relationship between Dezaray and Drake is so well created, that you get a real behind the scenes look as to why she is so desperate to leave her world. You can really relate to her, and that was so important when reading it.
I liked how Lexovia and the rest of the group came into the story, and the similarities and differences of both worlds. It was so nice to see the different groups get along, and the way we were told about each different type of magic in the world was so interesting. It was a brilliant addition to the story!
The Vildacruz were a perfect villain, both present and also just spreading by word of mouth. It was such a good way to introduce the main villains and show just how powerful they are.
There are so many wonderful characters in the book, I was spoiled for chose when it came to which one I liked more! I liked the relationship between Dezaray and Milo, although sometimes I felt it was focused on a little too much.
Overall, this was such a fun and magical novel that will be perfect for an fantasy lover! If you want good character, a villain to leave you on the edge of your seat, and a world that will make you want to live there, this is for you!
I can’t wait to read the next in the series!
