Favorites: Ameca J and the Legacy of Menindus

Every fantasy book has to have a solid fantasy world that is real, interesting, and draws the reader in. Ameca J and the Legacy of Menindus starts out in the everyday world we all know, but contact with The Spirit pulls them into Mythrania. 

One of the aspects of this world that really pulled me in was the history of this world. Ameca and her sister and father don't just drop into a world of magical beings and adventure, the become wrapped up in not only a world wide threat, but personal feuds as well. 

The story of two friends, one who lost the woman he loved, one who lost a sister and blames the other for her death, was an added layer to the world that made it feel that much more real. It helped me connect with was seemed to be only side characters at first. I enjoyed the sense that this world had conflict on many levels, making it a rich story overall. 

Ameca J and the Legacy of Menindus is available now from Amazon and B&N
