Immagica by K.A. Last

Title: Immagica
Author: K.A. Last
Genre: YA 
Publication Date:  January 27, 2013

Synopsis: Immagica
Where anything is possible.
Enter at your own risk.

The night before her fifteenth birthday, Rosaline Clayton uncovers a deep family secret. She receives an amulet from her deranged father, and he tells her she must find the book in order to save him. Rosaline is used to her dad not making any sense, so she dismisses their conversation as another of his crazy rants.

When Rosaline’s brother, Elliot, drags her to their Nana’s attic to explore, they find the old leather-bound book tucked away in a chest. It sucks them into its pages, transporting them to a magical world. Along the way Rosaline and Elliot are separated, and the only thing she wants is to find her brother and go home. 

The creatures of Immagica have other ideas. After years of war their land lies in ruin. Using the amulet’s power, they want Rosaline to defeat the dragon and restore Immagica to its former glory. But Rosaline is bound to Immagica in ways she doesn’t understand, and when she discovers the truth about her family, she must follow her heart to save them all.

Review: Let me just state firstly how much I LOVED this book. I sat with my 7 and 2 year old daughters every night before bedtime for a week reading this with them. I can’t thank K.A. Last for writing this book, and for the countless hours I have spent talking my daughters about the characters in this book. You have all the right elements:

1. Young girl coming of age
2. Magical world and 
3. Magical creatures
4. An EPIC journey to save the world from destruction.

I am not ashamed to admit I enjoyed this book just as much as my kids did!
I sincerely hope that this will be made into a series, because I would love to read more adventures in Immagica. The time spent with my daughters introducing them to an early love of books is priceless.
