Join forces with a parallel universe.
Dark forces, magical creatures, and the world Lil thought she knew collide when a dream transports her to the strange world of Orenda. Stunned and terrified, Lil comes face to face with her doppelganger, Willow, who possesses the ability to travel between the two worlds. Everything Lil knows logically says that Orenda can’t exist, but a small clue may be proof that it was more than an ordinary dream. With the threat of her sister in danger, Lil crosses dimensions but it may cost her even more than she bargained for.
A sword wielding girl, the eternal suit, and a parallel universe come together in this action-packed Young Adult fantasy adventure that will keep readers of all ages turning the pages. Orenda is the first novel in the Orenda series.
I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of this novel. The characters are well developed and, per Silver standard, the worlds she creates are vivid and bright. It's like you're there with Lil, feeling her feelings, wondering and questioning with her, and it's wonderful. Silver has a writing style that just leaps from the page.
Orenda is filled with action, romance and suspense. It's a quick read, very easy to sit down and read the entire thing in one evening (and you will, trust me), and it will keep you on the edge of your seat wanting more throughout. I loved every minute of this book and I am eagerly awaiting the next in the series! I recommend this to any and all YA romantic fantasy lovers.
