Young Adult fantasies have always been a popular genre among children and teenagers. I am thankful to Digital Reads Blog Tours for making me a part of this blog tour. This book is again an ARC I received as a part of Blog tour. I am not much of a YA books reader, but I decided to give this one a try just for a change. And I do not regret reading Arcacia. Let us get into the details of the book.
Author : T. A. Barua
Genre : Young Adult fantasy
Format : Paperback, Kindle
Length : 144 pages
When a beautiful sorceress-queen, Selina, spurns Setanor, a powerful, jealous northern warlock, an invasion of Western Arcacia begins. To save her newborn triplets from death, they are cast down a magical river to the New World, a place called, ‘London, England.’
Thirteen years later in a cold, Victorian London attic… The future of Sophie, an impoverished orphan looks bleak but everything changes, to her astonishment after a young witch arrives through her bedroom window with an incredible message and a warning. So begins her life in a beautiful, enchanted ancient world…
How do Sophie and her four friends summon the tremendous courage to rescue her long lost family while restoring Arcacia from dark, ruling forces? Mystical beasts, sceptres, powerful witches and daemon-trolls are just some of their challenges. Meanwhile, the dreaded terrifying warlock, Setanor and his witch-consort Lilith have sent a secret enemy to plan their downfall…
I enjoyed the travel around Arcacia, a magical world of sorcerers, witches, wizards etc. If you are a fan of fantasy fictions, you should not miss this beautiful book. I would love to see Arcacia on screen some day.
Initially I found some words hard to go with, but thanks to my kindle which has an on board dictionary. After few pages it was a smooth read. Arcacia could be a great gift for any teenager who loves books. The story has children, witches, dragons and some magic that can hold the breath of a child reader. Every character is beautifully developed to find a place in the reader’s imagination.
Arcacia kept me engaged throughout the read, but after the first half, somewhere I was able to assume the story. But that is fine. It may not happen with every other reader. Author T. A Barua has a magical narrative skill which deserves appreciation.
My Rating : 4/5
