I was also an average, invisible girl in my school days. But Emaline spends very little time in self-pity. She helps her mother, takes care of her baby brother, and the difficulties of their life really don't affect her attitude. I do wonder a little what happened to that milk she went to the store for, but what happens to Emaline totally eclipses the errand.
Micah was my favorite character, since we have a hard-of-hearing daughter who signs. I also appreciated the window into Secular Humanist philosophy, just enough so that real-life teenagers should say, "Hey, that's what we're learning everywhere, every day... "
I hope there's another book in this series already, because this one was mostly introduction and setup. Not that nothing exciting happens, because it sure does, but I need to get busy and read more.
“Emaline’s Gift” takes place in modern day Washington DC. Emaline is a 13 year old girl just trying to beat the boredom during summer vacation. Her whole life, however, is thrown upside down when a young man with mysterious abilities rescues her from a gang of psychotic teenagers. The young man, Anthony, is a Magi, one descended from the same Magi who visited Jesus as a child. The attacking teenagers are with the obeah, those with similar powers to the Magi’s, but fighting for the other side. Emaline suddenly finds herself in the middle of a battle between God and Satan, and the choice of who she will follow will determine her entire fate.
Brad Francis is a very good writer. “Emaline’s Gift” is written in the same style as Harry Potter or Percy Jackson, appropriate for children without being too tame. He describes the Magi and Obeah’s personalities and abilities vividly, and no two characters are the same. The action is intense, and the stakes are always high. What I found most impressive, though, is how Brad managed to keep the focus on God at all times. Even when the Magi are in a firefight (literally) with the Obeah, he makes sure the reader understands that their powers are not of their own doing- they’re gifts from God. The Magi will constantly stop and pray to strengthen their actions, seek God’s will, and… well, pretty much everything they do revolves around prayer.Read more ›
