Synopsis (from Goodreads):

With the arrival of of a supernatural hit-squad intent on killing her, and an unexpected inheritance, Ashley’s London is about to become a magical and mysterious warzone where the prize is Ashley herself.

Ashley has to find out the secrets of her own life before she is killed. Balancing ancient prophecies, schoolwork and the love of her life is difficult to say the least! Take part of the wonderful world of Moonlands.

My Review:
The author Steven Sevile has written an amazing story of a young girl who finds out that not only is there another real to her word but that she has place of royalty in that same world. All the characters are so strong the world’s are descriptive the novel is loaded with a lot of adventure and it has a splash of romance and plenty more of terror that will leave us the readers sitting on the edge of our seats or beds.

Our main character Ashley grows-up fast as she realises all isn’t what it seems to be, she gets to meet new people, witnesses a murder and finds out that she is now who she thought she was. But the story is full of loads of ups and downs to similar to a roller coaster ride. For I just fell in love with it personally and I highly recommend you read this fantasy it is suitable for all ages young adults and adults alike.

My Rating:
