Amelia Maylock Book Two : Hidden in the AmethystBook BlurbHad the old hag made a mistake? This couldn't be what Amelia was supposed to meet here, could it? Why would she send Amelia to fight such a - whatever it was - without warning her first? Amelia didn't have time to worry any longer as the creature took another giant step forward, looming closer and lowering its huge head towards her, revealing its bright white eyes, sitting in slits in the skull. The light from the orbs at the side of the room glistened off of the black bone but it couldn't make the creature look anything other than terrifying. Hidden in the amethyst is the second book in the Amelia Maylock series.In the first in the series Amelia Maylock the 12 year awakening Amelia finds out she is a witch. And that her arch nemesis is her own twin sister. Her evil twin however has had many a year honing her skill, whilst Amelia is new to interdimensional travel as well as to being a witch.It the second book Amelia is trained by the old hag and others to better herself in battle. An impossible task is set for her in finding the second stone in a series of nine. If these stones should fall into the hands of her twin all hope is lost.I love the fact that these books have appeal to young and old. Maylock has spunk and guts is pitched into situations where wiser more experienced men and woman would fear to tread. She however does not have much of a choice. While being a witch she is also still a human girl at the beginning of pubertity. Jay Ellis, the author does a great job in not only building the character of Amelia as a witch but also the Amelia a pubescent girl.Lucy, Amelia's older sister in the earth realm also grows in the second book in the series and her love interest is used to enable Amelia the time to battle evil. But as Amelia and the readers are aware. Not all is as it seems. The new girl at school? Friend or foe. The man on the corner?.I love this series and will definitely recommend it to the younger range of YA readers. Although at the age of 38 I have to confess that I really enjoy the series and can not wait to start on the next book in the adventureI give this a four star rating….. Buy it for your children and read it in secret.
"Hidden in the Amethyst" by Jason Ellis is the second in his Amelia Maylock series. 8th grader Amelia is no ordinary girl, she has special powers that are being developed in her training with several great fantasy/ paranormal characters, such as the Old Hag and the purple eyed Orhus. Amelia is an orphan and lives with her sister and aunt, she is going to school and has issues to figure out, such as who is this cool and distant new girl Martina.Outside of school she enters other dimensions and fights mysterious creatures, amongst them her older, other-worldly sister.Now in the second instalments the series benefits from the immaculate set-up of the first book and allows for a more playful narrative. What I like most about this series is that Amelia - or Maylock, as her other worldly name is - is not the super hero form word go. She is learning and occasionally fails, making for a much more likeable reading in my view. The fun is in the process and development. Ellis has created a wonderful set of characters that work together nicely. Set in Essex, a place I know well, and using some characters who speak the local accent, the book admittedly had added value for me, but I am sure that readers in the US will find this just as amusing and see it as an intriguing detail to the story.I was given the first book in exchange for a review but I bought this myself and will continue to follow the series. (Even though it is written for young adults).I recommend this book and the series to all fans of Potter and similar books without any fear to disappoint their expectations. I didn't read past the first Potter book but I am looking forward to book three in this series.
This is the second book in the Amelia Maylock Series. I absolutely loved it!Amelia Maylock is a fantastic character. She is still coming to terms with finding out that she is a witch, and having an evil sister (Erryaz) that she has to defeat. I really liked watching this character grow as she trains with the old hag. Her confidence in her abilities is still shaky, but she puts her heart into everything she tries.This story carries on from the end of the first book, The 12th Year Awakening. There is still a bit of mystery surrounding the "friendly voice" that Amelia hears, but it was nice visiting with the old hag, Anin, Ferul, Ral and Orhus again. There are a few new dimensions to travel to, and new friends and foes to meet. There are also a few twists and turns that surprised me; none more so than when Amelia meets the Leyumina. I had begun to like these people, but when they don't get their way, they sure turn ugly (talk about a swift personality change!). Erryaz is as evil as ever, and will stop at nothing to become even more powerful. This story has a blend of fantasy, magic and reality that will appeal to young readers and keep them entertained. I am now looking forward to reading the next book in the series to find out what happens next!Jason Ellis has written an exciting YA fantasy/adventure series that will keep youngsters hooked from the first page! I love his writing style, which is fast paced and flows beautifully. I have added this author to my Favourite Authors list.I highly recommend this book (and series) to not only boys and girls aged between 9 to 14, but to adults who love the younger YA genre. - Lynn Worton
I am posting this review on behalf of my 12yr old Daughter Chloe who has read the bookThis sequel to the 12th Year Awakening is awesome!!! The way Jason Ellis writes makes you feel as if you're in the story with Amelia. I loved the way Amelia went on the quest for the Amythyst Jewel with Anin, Ferul and Ral and faced GHOST'S!!!I can't wait to read the 3rd book in this AMAZING series!!!!
Amelia is looking for the Amethyst gem to add to her sword. This is an adorable read with other dimensions, full of suprise and mystery. I can't wait for the show off between the two sisters, I know it's coming! WaAR
