About Emily's House



Fourteen-year-old Emily Adams has special powers she doesn’t want, a spiteful aunt she can’t escape, and a primeval legacy she knows nothing about. But when an otherworldly being materializes, Emily discovers the true purpose of her magical blood and of the danger that threatens to annihilate her world.

Dormant for over a thousand years, an ancient evil has arisen. This time, it will destroy anyone – or anything – that stands in its way.

With her two best friends by her side, Emily risks everything and embarks on a dangerous journey to Ireland and beyond. As the hour of world annihilation draws near, the fate of her friends, her family and her world lies in her hands.

Can a teenage girl without hero credentials save the world? And will Emily find the courage to face her true self in Emily’s House?

Join the Journey . . .

Di Thrifty Native - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

I was given a copy of this story for free in exchange for an honest review. My opinions are my own and are in no way influenced by the generosity of the author.
I liked Emily's House. I wanna say that first, before anything else. It was a great plot, decent characters, and a lot of heart. But...
It lacked oomph, spice, strength. It's hard to describe exactly what was missing. It's like a bowl of chili with just the faintest touch of chili powder; you like it, but it's not exactly to your taste. The supporting characters felt a bit bland and some of the scences felt forced.
Emily was a good lead character, however. You really feel her pain, her fear, her lack of confidence. Then you watch her grow into a more confident teen; she's still a bit frightened, but she stands up for what's right.
It felt like the author grew as the story progressed as well. The beginning was discordant to me and as I read further, it became more harmonious. I will be reading Book 2 and 3 and can honestly say I look forward to it.
Emily's House is a good book for young adults and adults who enjoy the genre.
Oh, I also never understood why it was named Emily's House, but that's neither here nor there.

4.0 su 5 stelle Title Misleading 28 marzo 2013
Di Cellophane Queen - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The title sounds like some kind of 19th C. chicklit a la Emily Bronte. That's why I've had this book on my Kindle for awhile, but haven't read it until now. Looking at the item, I see only "Emily's House" but not the (Akasha Chronicles, #1) part. If that had been on that line, I would have got to it sooner.

So, this is not a 19th C. chicklit. It's an exciting YA contemporary fantasy in the Celtic myth genre. It also has science. Mixing fantasy with science usually means science fiction, so maybe it's a bit of that genre as well.

It is not, however, a mishmash. I had to get some traction with Emily. She seemed like a deliberate underachiever until you get to know her story. This is a girl who's keeping her head down and trying to survive an uncaring father and abusive aunt. She doesn't know she's from a long line of Celtic priestesses. Boy, howdy, when she finds out, she goes from slump-shouldered bad student to flaming-haired Celtic goddess. Nice transition.

Now that I've let you know this book is not what the title suggests and that its heroine has plenty of moxie and ambition, then you can patiently work your way through the first few chapters while Ms. Wright builds the background and story.

Trust me. You'll like Emily (eventually), and I'll be reading the continued Akasha Chronicles now that I know all about Emily.
5.0 su 5 stelle An excellent, fast-paced story - entertaining all the way. 14 marzo 2013
Di Dianne Greenlay - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Other reviewers have given a good synopsis of the storyline so I will focus on what I really enjoyed. Having been young myself when my own mother passed away, leaving me with an emotionally absent father, I feel Ms. Wright has really captured Emily's feelings in the novel. The author has also invented a couple of friends for Emily whose personalities will resonate with teen readers.

I also loved the seamless blending of a fantasy world, with the real-life ones of Emily before she embarks on her journey. With lots of myths, magical creatures, clashes and good plot development going on, I read this in one sitting.

All in all, this is a wonderful story of a young girl coming to know herself through facing her own fears and doubts, while recognizing and accelerating her new-found strengths. A great YA novel.

5.0 su 5 stelle An excellent read for all! 15 luglio 2013
Di CatFigaro - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I read the story first on Wattpad and purchased it to read with my tween son. Excellent for tweens, teens and adults (not girly) with a bit of history, friendship struggles and a mystic quality that keeps you guessing. I recommend purchasing Book 2 at the same time as you will want to read it as soon as you finish this one.

4.0 su 5 stelle very good fantasy story, well written and entertaining 19 maggio 2013
Di Welly - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
A gripping tale which has elements of the hobbit and harry potter, combined with the teenager fears and doubts of a one parent girl. It will appeal to young -and not so young- readers who enjoy fantasy quests. There is also a subtle encouragement for self-discovery and the power of the mind. I'll definitely look out for Emily's trials, the 2nd book in the series.
