More than magic semester aboard - Elizabeth Kirke
About the book:
Jen is looking forward to spending an entire summer studying abroad on a cruise ship and she knows the experience will change her life. Then she sees something she wasn't supposed to see, something she can't explain. Jen finds herself thrust into a world she never knew existed and her life will change more than she imagined. That is, if she can survive the dangers lurking on the ship.
I was lucky enough to receive my copy of More than magic direct from the author, and although it has taken me a while to read it i must say i don't know why i waited so long to do so. From the very start i found myself captivated by the characters and the story-line. The whole books flows so well with well written dialogue and believable, personable characters dragging you along with the story. You never once feel like you are missing anything whether it be in action scenes or ones of a more personal nature between one or more of the characters it has everything you could want. The author leaves just enough for you to be able to picture everything that is happening for yourself, yet gives you enough detail to be able to see the whole picture. I loved all of the main characters although i do have a huge soft spot for Jen, with everything that she goes through dealing with it all in her own way, yet taking it all in her stride showing her depth of character as well as her inner strength, yet still showing that as with all well rounded characters she has flaws and inner doubts with everything that she does and everything that she is. The interaction between the characters is well defined and well written making you laugh, sigh and feel all the emotions that are portrayed as if you are really there seeing and feeling right along with them. All credit goes to the author for bringing a new spin on a genre that is so well known now, making you want to sit back and read it. I know i for one can not wait to see where the next book is going to take Jen and the rest of the cast. An all round great job Elizabeth, now get to writing the next one i need to know what's going to happen. To everyone else i urge you to go get a copy of this book and give it a read i strongly believe you will not be disappointed.
