Eternal Seas

Eternal Seas - blog post image

Such a small parcel shouldn’t cause experienced smugglers much trouble, but this parcel is far from normal.

Chased across the seas, Finn and Aria must solve the mysteries within the parcel. What does it mean? Who should they trust? What will happen? The fate of an ancient people depends on them and time is running out ...

My Thoughts

Gripping - filled with suspense and twists and turns that keep you guessing right 'till the end. The characters are beautifully drawn and the author keeps tight control of the plot and knows exactly what she's doing. I highly recommend this and so, shared it with one of my 13 year old test readers who seems to agree, saying:-

"I really enjoyed this book because the balance between adventure story and magic is really good. My favourite character is Finn because I like the way he's not afraid of anything. Also, if I was in the book he has the powers I would most want to have :) The story is so, so good, I will definitely recommend it to my friends."

SO, tell your friends, and while you're at it mention Lexi Rees' competitions featured in The Writer's Notebook this week, offering the chance to win a £10 Amazon voucher or the thrill of seeing your illustration published:-

More About The Author: –

Lexi Rees spends as much time as possible sailing and horse riding, both of which she does spectacularly badly. Attempts at writing whilst horse riding have been disastrous, so Eternal Seaswas written on a boat; the storm described in the book was frighteningly real.
