Blog Tour: From Frights to Flaws with a #review

Middle Grade Fantasy
Date Published: January 14, 2014

Twelve-year-old Alyssa McCarthy is sick of her uncle’s unfair rules and longs for a better life. After discovering the existence of magic, she finds out about a dark wizard hunting her down. An unforgettable storm occurs in Alyssa’s ordinary New Jersey town before the sorcerer kidnaps her to the Fiji Islands.
On the enchanted island of Yanowic, Alyssa learns that she is unable to get out of the country due to a giant shield. She must defeat some dangerous creatures and the evil wizard in order to leave. But with sorcerers and magical technology getting in her way, can Alyssa succeed?


After reading the first, I was definitely excited to see what kind of trouble Alyssa would end up in this time. I think Sunayna Prasad has done a great job of taking a character we have already come to know and helping her grow from the first novel. She is still the same girl, but has obviously grown from her experiences. 

This novel definitely steps up the action a bit. I loved how fast-paced it was.
