Review - "Child of the Sacred Earth" by Alicia Michaels

Get a degree, get a job, save adorable foster siblings from the clutches of the evil foster mom …
These are Jocylene Sanders’ top priorities as she enters her sophomore year of college. The last thing she expects is to find herself the champion of an entire kingdom. However, that is just what happens when the mysterious Faerie, Rothatin Longspear, appears to her, tasking her with saving a parallel world full of creatures from her wildest dreams.

Jocylene journeys with him into the world of Fallada, hoping for answers about her birth parents and background. What she finds is a mystifying past, and an even more uncertain future, as her heart becomes entangled with the stoic, battle-hardened Rothatin, as well as Eli, the untroubled Panther Shifter with no loyalties and no home. With her heart and soul pulled in so many directions, can Jocylene find the strength needed to become the savior one nation so desperately needs?

My review:

I am a huge fan of supernatural/paranormal/fairy tales, you name it.  This series has to be one of my all time favorites.  It's a great take on the middvil times (or so it seems), with a mix of mythical add to have fairies, girls with powers, elves, seers, witches and well the list goes on.  

I love how each book is about a different girl and her tale on finding out who & what she truly is.  Each girl is important to the grand scheme of things but must overcome obstacles to accomplish what they are setting out to do.

Alicia does a great job of describing the characters, the demographics and the events that take place.  She is a great story teller which makes it easy for the reader to get sucked into the world of Fallada.

If you like Lord of the Rings, Hobbit and Narnia than you will love these books.   You will not be disappointed!!
