The emerald atlas by John stephens review- annmarie

spoilers maybe included!

a enjoyable book 
**** 4 stars

They were snatched from their beds in the dead of night, when the world was covered in snow.
Ten years on, Kate, Michael and Emma have grown up in a string of miserable orphanages, and all memories of their parents have faded. Arriving in the eerily silent Cambridge Falls, the children quickly realise there is something strange going on...
With the discovery of an old leather book, an ancient magical prophecy is set in motion which will take them on the the adventure of several lifetimes, to worlds outside their own. Only they have the power to save the town - and their own future.

I was lucky enough to get this while out shopping and im super glad i did.
The story starts at once you throw right into the action of the kids life and from there it a roller-coaster of action and time travel fighting and love and more. the writing style was a little different but i really liked it. there was so much i loved about the book and the author described it so well that you could almost be there yourself  the only thing i did find that confused me was the book i understood what it did but i felt like one minute the bad guys had the book next the good and it all happened in the blink of an eye that you start to think you most have read it wrong but apart from that it was really good. i would say that the book might not be for everyone but im shore most of you well loved it. i really cant wait to see what happens in the next book.
**** four stars
