Blog Tour: Wanderamid's Crystal Ball by @irenevphillips - #Review

Young Adult Fantasy

Date Published: June 2012
     A devious young girl, Devilea, tricks Emera, the powerful witch of Wanderamid, stealing her crystal ball and sending her through to another dimension. For the past three years, Emera has been living as Ms. Biddock, the principal of Whilom Elementary.
      On the last day of school, Emera crosses paths with Rena Winterton, a student who, soon after, discovers her hidden identity. To prevent Rena from revealing her long kept secret, Emera recites an incantation that will send Rena away to retrieve the clear stone she believes can bring her  home, Wanderamid's Crystal Ball. However, when the chosen spell emerges, Emera is 
surprised to see Rena already has it in her possession! She attempts to stop the spell, but her powers fail. It's too late! The summoning has begun and for Rena, an unexpected journey begins.
      An electrifying force directs her through a portal, leading to future encounters, as she ventures into an unfamiliar world. In this world between many, curses, revenge and magic delay Rena's search for her intended destination, the entryway back to her home town, Whilom.

The only downfall with this novel is its cover. It doesn't really pull a reader in. The story however, really grabs the readers attention from the get-go. Irene V. Phillips does a great job being descriptive and allowing the reader to feel like they are immersed in the world. 

I liked how the characters had things in common yet were from different worlds. It really drew a parallel between "humanity".

A nice clean treat for fans of Young Adult Fantasy. 

Irene V. Phillips is the author of Wanderamid's Crystal Ball. Her fascination with magic, dreams and paranormal beliefs transpires throughout the Young adult fantasy novel.
Born and raised in New Jersey, she currently resides in Florida with her teenage son.
