From the beginning, I was drawn into the main character, Amelina’s world.
It is quickly established that Amelina’s world is not like other girls her age.
I can’t say more than that as I don’t want to give spoilers away.
Amelina is written so well. There is a part of her that all of us will recognise and emphasise with. At that awkward age where nothing fits and at the same time you feel as if you can conquer the world.
Darkness creeps in slowly in the form of Ryder who at first seems the answer to all Amelina desires, or is he?
The circle of friends she has are all different personalities but they fit together like a circle.
The description of each girl is short but gives us an immediate picture of their personality.
Then there are Amelina’s parents, her growing power and the strange invitation.
I give Curse of Time Book One five stars.
I enjoyed reading this novel and the only consolation I had when finishing it was there will be a book two.
Marjorie has written a magical tale and drawn for us a world where nothing is what it appears to be on the surface.
I loved this novel and Marjorie’s telling of it.
Amelina has a strong voice and I could see everything crystal clear through her eyes.
A book to go back and read time and time again.
