"A girl who is tired of just following the rules, a boy who is ripe for adventure, and a book that isn't quite what it appears to be are the ingredients for an exciting young adult novel featuring mages, magic spells, and a deadly battle with an evil necromancer. Layla can be read as a welcome addition or the perfect introduction to Annmarie Banks' masterful historical fantasy series, The Elysium Texts."
M. Louisa Locke, author of the Victorian San Francisco Mystery series

As her adventure progresses, she uses what skills she has out of necessity, and her abilities expand exponentially until, by the end of this story, she is as powerful as her mother. Near the end, she can even communicate directly with animals, something her mother did not do.
It is obvious to me that the author has had Out Of Body experiences, for she describes it very accurately in this story, as Layla is forced to leave her body frequently to rectify the situation she finds herself in.
There will be a tendency for the reader to skip words and even sentences in order to speed up the exciting action to quickly find out how the event being described ends. Don't do it! Read every word and sentence to get richness of this text the way the author intended. ...and there is a great deal of action, with lightning strikes from the sky striking enemies, sword play, and an insubstantial Dragon made of smoke terrifying villagers and bringing a battle to a screeching halt. A Fun book to read!
