Everything Rolled Into One Series - Especially LOVE
Reviewed in the United States on June 27, 2018
I started this series in 2014 when I was sick with pneumonia and looking for something to pre-occupy my mind. I had never read fantasy before and this was the first book I read by Elle Casey. Not only did I fall in love with this series, but I fell in love with Elle Casey's writing, her immediately becoming my all time favorite author. I've also fallen in love with every character in this series, especially Jayne and Tim. I've been chomping at the bit for these last two books to come out, even re-reading the series to keep the adventures alive in my mind, lol.
This series has EVERYTHING; creativity, challenge, family, mystery, humor (seriously - HILARIOUS!), friendship, suspense, adversity, action, grief, romance, loss, good vs evil, humanity, life lessons, forgiveness, and most importantly - LOVE.
Yes, this is fiction and fantasy, but it's also an incredible perspective and parallel to real life. I learned something from each book about myself and life in general. It's about accepting ourselves and others, despite of our flaws, mistakes and differences. Realizing that not everything is as it seems, humanity and being humble. It's about not losing your sense of humor when things get tough. Following your intuition and believing in yourself. It's about appreciating all who cross our path and teach us something; good, bad and everything in between. It's about not losing sight of the big picture in life, no matter how overwhelming the details may seem. Letting go of our need to have control and have everything figured out, which makes us miss what's most important...the journey. It's about finding yourself - your TRUE SELF, rather than worrying about what others think, want and do.
To say this series is my favorite is a *huge* understatement. Elle Casey's writing is beyond creative, entertaining and brilliant, which translates into every book and series she's written. I'm sad to see this series end, but so glad I bought the books, which I plan to read again and again. My recommendation? Get the whole series up front because once you start, you won't be able to put it down!
