To Who Ever This May Concern;
I wish I could tell you the contents of this book were purely fictional. That I, Adela Arthur, was just a normal sixteen year old from Portland and that dragons, giants, elves and mermaids were just myths. I wish these were legends shared from crazy old grandparents to crazy old grandparents around campfires. After all, that is what I used to believe.
I never would have thought they lived on the other side of our mirrors in a world called Cielieu. But they do…
I never would have thought there were humans, better known as Volsin that lived among them with the ability to create light from a single thought. But there are…
I never would have thought I was one of them… But I am…
I am the last Arthur and I was brought to the human world after a Volsin, filled with greed, began to strip the light from our kind.
The human world was supposed to be a safe haven… but he’s found us and the only way to stop him is to go back to Cielieu and begin training as a student in the Elpida Castle of Light.
Like I said I wish the contents of this book were purely fictional and not my life…
Fun, adventure, magic and mystery combined in this delightful, fast read. Adela Arthur and The Creator’s Clock tells the story of Adela Arthur, who has led a regular life…until now. When a monster sneaks its way into her school, and a class mate of hers dies in a violent attack by said monster, everything Adela has ever believed in, is turned upside down. She must face a dark, threatening evil in a different world, Cieulieu, the world she originally belonged to. By going back to that world, she claims her heritage, the heritage of the Arthurs. Along with her best friend, Hector, she goes to a magical school where they are trained to use their light.
For Adela, the journey is full with unexpected surprises. She has difficulty using her light at first. She encounters Jeremy, an enigmatic boy who totally has the ‘bad boy’ act down. He can do a special kind of memory magic, that’s actually kind of awesome. Adela is an inspiring character. No matter what happens, she continues on.
The writing was a little sloppy here and there, but I’ll forgive that since this is the author’s debut.
Don’t you just love the cover, by the way?
An enjoyable, fast-paced, suspenseful read for everyone who loves fantasy and magic.
