and decided to read it myself first. I got the ebook and immediately was captivated by the little
girl with pointy ears (No, she was not at all like a Vulcan ;-). This book is very well written and
comes up with quite unusual ideas and "visions" even though some ideas hark back at well
known figures of fantasy like "elves", a "crystal castle" and "worlds" beyond our own.
Nevertheless all these are shown in a fresh new light and context together with images and
situations quite special, innovative and captive to one's imagination.
It all starts off with the girl feeling like a bit of a stranger in this world - an experience lots
of kids might share on and off - leading her straight into another world where her "true worth"
matters. She becomes involved in exciting adventures and proves herself in many ways.
I think this book might indeed captivate many youngsters and when at the end of the book
the first chapter of the second volume is printed, the reader can't wait to find out what might
next happen to Agnil as her path through this and other worlds seems full of promise still.
Definitely a fun read for kids.
Agnil (Aggie) is a ten-year-old girl who misses her deceased mother. When she meets a gregarious elf named Garallil, he tells Agnil she's a elf-princess and her mother is still alive and imprisoned by an evil wizard called Vedron. After meeting her elven grandparents, the king and queen of a magical country called Aberrian, Agnil sets off on a journey to find and defeat the leader of the Dark Realm. Along the way she escapes giant spiders, is helped by green dogs, and aided by a mysterious old man.
Is Aggie triumphant over the villain??? Does she rescue her mother??? Read this Five Star children's book and find out.
The Rise of Agnil is well written, fantastically imagined, and has simple but beautiful colored drawings depicting scenes in the book. It also has a preview for the second book in the series at the end - Agnil and the Wizard's Orb. It looks to be just as fun and interesting. I recommend it for ages 7-12 and give it a Five Star rating. .

I certainly believe that this story with a most acceptable page count and interesting illustrations - the first in the series - The Rise of Agnil, more than satisfies this need. If you have children or grandchildren who still read about elves, wizards, strong family ties - love and loyalty - they will enjoy this book and the stories to follow, I'm sure.
I particularly like the setup of Agnil's usual world, followed by an incident that quickly gets the motor of the story running. Then she's in a another place, with strange people, danger, and important decisions to make. The pacing is excellent.
Also of note is the enhancement provided by Charlotte Moore's illustrations, and the excerpt for the next book leaves the reader wanting more.
Agnil is a likeable main character and one young readers will readily identify with. When she discovers that her mother is still alive and she is the only one who can defeat the evil wizard, the young girl agrees to take on the dangerous quest.
I think this book is also suitable as a story to be read out loud to younger children (especially as grown-ups are likely to enjoy it too!) Highly recommended.
