Book Review: The Alfaeren Legacy

The Álfaerën Legacy by Marc Jacobs
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kali and Kilyn were thrilled to finally be chosen to go buy herbs in the far off community of Deben to bring back to their treehouse orphanage. They had no idea that their journey would lead them to their destiny, in the form of a strange cave in a mountain they stumbled across by accident. Their discovery would open a portal to a strange world and connect them with another teenager who was destined to save them from the Spirit lurking inside the mountain, patiently waiting for his revenge. Can three teenage girls save a world?

The Alfaeren Legacy is a fun YA fantasy novel that centers around three strong female protagonists, and their combined efforts to save a world from a spirit demon. While I liked the plot and the pace of the story, I found the dialogue and the characters a little shallow. However I loved the modern use of the internet to trace one’s roots, and the intersecting of Finnish history, as honestly I don’t know much about Finland. As a fantasy novel I think it is a really fun and fast read, but in the series I’m hoping to see a little more character development and depth, particularly in the dialogue, as they all sounded the same to me. Can’t wait to read the next book in the series!
