Another great read in the growing series by Natalie. Well written with lots of suspense that kept me on the edge. The characters are becoming so real with wonderful descriptive action. Can't wait until the next in the series.
This is another gripping fantasy adventure with Emily and her 2 friends, Fanny and Jake, away in Netherworld. The journey begins with a high school prank and ends with the death of a new friend. Emily must make some hard choices in order to stop the Apocalypse she started, while the Goddess Brighid is imprisoned and helpless.
A well-written and captivating story. Highly recommended.
Bestselling author and Top Reviewer,
Natalie Wright's use of detail and imagery paint each scene in the mind of the reader. The scary world Emily travels to seems so awful, but so real. Wright did a good job developing her characters, as well. Emily truly grows as the pages turn; she matures as she fights and works. The other characters grow and change, too. I am excited to see how Emily and her friends continue to develop in the next book.
Teenagers and young adults would love Emily's Trial. It has all the aspects of a good story and with an awesome heroine. I give this novel 4.5 out of 5 stars and eagerly await the Natalie Wright's next book!

REVIEW: Okay...Emily's Trial...well this story was definitely a trial for Emily. All throughout this novel I felt like telling the author- What the bloody hell!?
While, in my review for book 1, I wrote about how I loved Emily's character, Book 2 made me HATE her. The pace was slightly slow, and even though, Emily's trial occurred in one particular realm, there was a lot of discoveries. So many scenes were explored thoroughly. The storyline was still pretty good, but I was expecting a little more from the characters. I know if you read this book, you'll think- what the hell is this reviewer going on about? Haven't the characters been put through enough? And my answer is yes. They were put through a lot, I just expected a little more courage from them. One thing I was glad about, was that the writing, plot, and twists were still genuinely written. The author did not budge from her dedication to this work, and the result has shown in the success of Emily's Trial. I think, throughout this book, Wright will make us hate and love each and every character, except for the villain, of course. But that is how a good novel is. Also, the ending, while it made me quite unhopeful, was perfect for the novel, and a impeccable cliffhanger to lead readers on to the sequel. I know I will be chattering my teeth till I read Emily's next instalment.
Emily - or Miss Magic - possesses magical powers, which are strengthened through the Torc, a type of bracelet bound to her arm. Set in our modern day world, she sticks out; magical powers aren't a common everyday thing. But she doesn't hide them either. Neither does she use them for any special purpose. They're simply there and offer a great opportunity for cafeteria pranks. Pranks? Yep, Emily isn't a perfect girl. She's a character with many rough edges, and these lead to some very bad decisions.
All in all, I liked Emily. She's very realistic and like many teens her age, let's her good judgement be over-shadowed with superficial desires. Her 'comrads' aren't true blue all the time either. Although they go out of their way for her in the beginning, they're support waivers when things get tense. This lack of a 'stand-by-me' feeling made it increasingly hard to like them, but it did make me sympathize more with Emily.
The story is mostly set in a nightmare dimension with varying, clever scenes, which are well written, creepy, dark and slightly gruesome. There were moments which made me cringe. Of course, Emily isn't weak but uses her warrior talents to barely defeat the monsters thrown at her in well written fight scenes. The only thing she's lacking is a little more self-assurance. Her self-doubt gets a little tiring at times.Read more ›
