The Puppet Spell

Unlike her rebellious sister Lucinda, fifteen-year-old Lexa prefers to spend her free time playing video games, fighting the forces of evil with her partner-in-crime Marlon. But when Lucinda steals an invisibility potion from their uncle’s storeroom, she unleashes chaos into their lives. Lexa and Marlon find themselves catapulted into a world far more dangerous than any video game, full of misleading illusions, sinister Conjurors and deadly Fey, and threatened by a man with a grudge known as the Puppeteer. Accompanied only by Lexa’s uncle’s unreliable (and rather dangerous) Chimera, Lexa and Marlon must navigate this world to find Lucinda- before they too fall under the spell of the puppet master...




Praise
'OMG, my hat goes off to Miss Adams. "The Puppet Spell", is a mind-bogglingly crafted novel...I love the intricate web that is interwoven throughout the story. It leaves you wondering what's real and what has been created from the mind of Adams. It's Harry Potter meets The Matrix. It's a fast-paced story that left me gripping the end of my seat waiting for the next scene to start. Adams's debut novel is a must have! Its original take on magic and other worlds will have you placed under a spell of its own.' - YA author Elle A. Rose (Amazon review)

'Adams has crafted an entertaining fantasy tale with some nicely creepy moments. This novel is aimed at a young audience and should be extremely well received...a brilliantly written adventure story.' - Fantasy author Sharon Stevenson (Amazon review)

Cindy's Review: 

 I think this book was a one amazing read! It was entertaining from start to finish with the magical spells and the twins adventures, which got you clinging to the edge of your seat! Although the cover is a little scary. LOL. You learn to never judge a book by its cover. I read this book because I know the author from Twitter (kind of) and I knew she was trying really hard to get her book published, so I decided to give it a try. Not bad was the first thought I had when I started reading this.

Amazing! was the thought I had when I finished. If E. L. Adams was writing a sequel, I would definitely read that one.

So the main character of the book is Lexa. Lexa is a quiet, calm, smart, and responsible type of girl as her twin sister, Lucinda is the troublemaker, the queen bee, and the snotty kind of girl. Lexa and Lucinda started living with their uncle  Steven. Their uncle moves around a lot so Lexa had to change schools a lot. But during that past two years, she still went to the same school.

One day, when their uncle left for somewhere, Lucinda was naughty enough to look into their uncle's storeroom. and there they discovered an invisibility potion and a whole other world. When Lucinda decides to use the potion and ends up going to the other world, Lexa had no choice but to follow. Along with the Chimera, whom is Steven's pet and Marlon, Lexa's best friend.

Although the Chimera was somewhat, cruel, I never hated him. I mean, he did save Lexa from dying a lot of times, so when the Chimera led Lexa into a trap, I was like "The Chimera isn't like that, is he?"

Either way, this book was one, big, entertaining read!! Loved it! Although I do kind of wish Marlon and Lexa fell in love. Cuz you know, if your best friend is a guy in a book, you'll always fall in love with them. It's kinda like an unwritten rule. LOL.

 I rate it an 8.6!

Author E.L. Adams

Emma is a 21-year-old author from Birmingham, UK. When she isn't reading voraciously, studying, or taking every opportunity to travel, she can be found in front of her writing desk.

Having aspired to be a writer since the age of ten, Emma aims to give life to her (admittedly bizarre) daydreams, through creating weird and wonderful alternative worlds. Her debut novel THE PUPPET SPELL, published in January 2013 by Rowanvale Books, is a fantasy tale for young adults and the young at heart, inspired by her lifelong love of traditional fantasy, mythology, and video games.

When not living the crazy life of an English Literature with Creative Writing student at Lancaster University, Emma reluctantly resides in the attic in her parents' house in Birmingham. Local rumour is that she is working on a dark fantasy series for mature young adults featuring demons and other assorted night terrors.
