An unforgettable storm occurs in Alyssa’s ordinary New Jersey town before the sorcerer kidnaps her to the Fiji Islands.
On the enchanted island of Yanowic, Alyssa learns that she is unable to get out of the country due to a giant shield. She must defeat some dangerous creatures and the evil wizard in order to leave. But with sorcerers and magical technology getting in her way, can Alyssa succeed?




Review

This is my second novel with Alyssa as the main character and I absolutely love her as a lead character for young readers. She has obstacles in front of her, but I love the way she overcomes them. I think this novel will definitely relate with pre-teens and even teens. 

I enjoyed the fact that the Author was able to build on the first novel and not have anything that felt repetitive. 2nd novels can be difficult when you are working the same world and with the same characters to not make them seem the same. Great job.
