I am use to this author's work and so when I was told she had a new book coming out I so wanted to get my hands on it so I could see what else she has up her sleeve. With Frozen in Time we are dealing with the unknown of what is in Alimanti . Kasey-Ray was a normal child until her mother died and then her father died of a broken heart. Thinking she could live with her best friend she is told that she has a grandfather who is going to take her and take care of her but only where he lives in a small town of Alimanti. Kasey-Ray being a teenager of course is not happy about this, but there is nothing she can do. I felt really bad for the young girl because she was out in the middle of no where with no electricity talk about going crazy!!!
As the story progresses we learn why her grandfather and grandmother are no longer together, the person her grandmother is, is a big revelation one that Kasey-Ray is surprised at.
There is something beyond the wooded area and what decision Kasey-Ray makes may not be the right one.
I am excited to see where this series is going to go, after the ending I wonder what else is going to happen.
I enjoyed the playfulness between Kasey-Ray and Josh it was harmless teenage jokes and fun but it was nice to see some type of humor within the book.
This is a good book for the teenagers I think they will highly enjoy this book and others in the series as well.
Having read Erin the Fire Goddess, my expectations for Almanti were extremely high. It did not disappoint.
Almanti takes you through a plethora of emotions: loss, heartache, humor, and wonder just to name a few. Along the way, you meet characters that are believable, yet not predictable. You are submerged into the Alaskan culture which is baffling at times, yet intriguing.
You'll want to wrap your arms around Kasey Ray and hug her tight. You'll dream of your teenage years and reminisce on the playful banter between long lost friends.
When a paranormal twist is added to the plot, you'll be shocked as if you never knew. Page by page, you'll be drawn into this young girl's world. You'll begin to wonder if there's more to Almanti than meets the eye.
Get passed the minor grammatical errors and focus on the important stuff....
The amazing new series known as Almanti.
I was keen to progress, but the travel - albeit smooth - seemed fairly uneventful. Enjoyably calm, relaxing, and I happily continued on my way. Some may find that slower path a little dull, but rest assured that I would highly recommend this travel. Things aren't always as they appear, and there is much to be said about the calm before the storm... Stick true to your path, and you will find glory.
On a more serious note, I loved the book. Certainly would recommend it to anyone who loves a good fantasy drama. Sure, it is comparably slow compared to Lavinia Urban's other reads - The Dating Game, or Erin The Fire Goddess - but trust me, it is worth reading. By the time you get around halfway in, you will be hooked. Towards the end, you will be likely obsessed. Personally, I have to know what happens next in #2 - Hope Springs.
Orphaned at fifteen, Kasey Ray’s life totally changes when she is sent to live with her grandfather in a small village in Alaska. Used to living in Scotland with modern technology and everything on hand, life in Alimanti was like going back to the dark ages. Her Grandfather’s cabin was isolated, had no electricity or connection to the outside world and school was a two hour trek away.
When Kasey Ray saw a strange man in the nearby woods, her grandfather had no choice but to tell her about her history and the dangers that surround the area. She learned some shocking revelations about her grandmother and wasn’t entirely sure if she should believe everything her grandfather said… but maybe life around here won’t be that dull after all!
What I like about Lavinia’s work is that she writes for her children. She uses language that is age appropriate for them at the time of writing and they have a personal feel to them. Her main character Kasey Ray shares her name with Lavinia’s daughter and it’s nice that she has done these books for her girls.
Frozen in Time is an interesting children’s story with a magical twist that is clearly the start of a series, one many young girls will enjoy. The editing isn’t perfect but this doesn’t distract from the story and is unlikely to be noticed by the target audience.
