Of Gaea
Of Legacies Trilogy Book #1
By Victoria Escobar
Published: March 20th, 2013 by CreateSpace

Her choice will change the world...

She hated the wheelchair. Hated the way it made her feel like less than what she was. Most of all she hated not being able to do all the things she used to. Ari had been a track and field star, an archery champion, and an Eskrima pro. Now she confined to a wheelchair, slowly dying inside from its restraints.

Medical science wasn't working. The tests, the drugs, the therapies were all useless and a waste of time. She was tired of wasting her time; she was tired of failure. It was time to look away from the obvious  and try something unconventional.

Nothing was ever free and that included miracles. Abruptly, Ari finds herself tangled in a web of lies, questioning everything she's ever known as truth. Never had she believed she'd be thrown headfirst into a world of good and evil, magic and Gods. Trapped in the middle of a war she had never known existed both parties demanded her allegiance. Ari was a catalyst that could change all the rules of Earth. But when the time comes to make a choice will she be strong enough to know right from wrong?

Alright, everyone. Before I go on to tell you the highs and lows of the fabulous book described above, I want all of you (yes, I mean YOU) to give a HUGE round of applause to my girl, Victoria! <3 SO proud of you, Ms. Published ;)

Now, onto the review.

Of Gaea tells the story of Ari, a teenage girl confined to a wheelchair after an accident at her school. While searching for a non-medical cure to her paralysis, she will discover a shocking secret about her entire life (which no, I am not telling you... Read it yourself if you're so curious ;P) which will turn her world on its head. Luckily for her she has Nasya and (the incredibly hot...) Sasha at her side. Every character has their own plot line hiding away, and you can't help but crave more!

Escobar crafts a magical world that will attract fans of Percy Jackson and The Olympians (Rick Riordan), The Forsaken Series (Kristen Day), and Harry Potter (J.K. Rowling) fans alike! If you love stories with drama, suspense, a bit of mystery, humor and romance, this is the book for you!

My Rating:

Purchase Of Gaea:

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Victoria was born in sunny Florida, except it wasn’t sunny; it was the middle of the night. Midnight actually, well, two minutes past, but she tried really hard for midnight.
​Victoria has been to twenty one schools in her lifetime. With all the continual switching around, she’s relied on her imagination for friends and books for close companions. In high school she remained apart from the whole and spent most of her time in the library either reading or writing.
​Currently, Victoria has set down roots in New York with her family. She still reads and writes every day. She finished her debut novel Of Gaea in the winter of 2012 and is working on the sequel and many other projects.
