Title and Author:
Evangeline by Erica Laurie
Name of Reviewer:
Reason for choice of rating:
Several characters are dealing with the tragic passing of loved ones (a mother, a sister)
Such a sweet fantasy story. Evangeline discovers a magical book that transports her back in time and around the world to Korea where she meets Beom, a young Korean man. At first she thinks she is dreaming but perhaps this is real? Can she really be the one responsible to save this world from the terrible fate facing it?
The characters have experienced loss but it enhances their love. They are also faced with decisions about how much they are willing to sacrifice for those they love. All in all a wonderful story that kept me guessing about how it was going to turn out and I was satisfied in the end.
The only other Korean fantasy book I have read is "Eun Na and the Phantom" also by Erica Laurie so I do not have a lot to compare "Evangeline" to but I know that I personally enjoyed both stories and would recommend them to others.
Oh did I mention that there are dragons? There are!
Young adults particularly girls looking for a nice romance story with Korean characters and some fantasy thrown in.
Did you have a favorite character or least favorite character?
I really like Beom. He has a good sense of humor and watches out for Evangeline right from the start when she first materializes right in front of him.
What mood did this book leave you in?
Dragon, Fairy Tale, Portal, Magic, Quests, Romance, Young Adult
