“Take courage — the magic is already inside you.”
This theme is reiterated throughout J. Scott Savage’s first book in his YA Fantasy series, Farworld, a book that I found enjoyable, adventurous, and captivating.
The characters are unique and skillfully drawn. Meet 13-year-old Marcus — a nobody, an outcast, living on Earth, where he is passed from one foster home to another — a boy with magical powers.
Meet Kyja, a 13-year-old girl who lives in Farworld, a magical place where horses tell jokes and the sun rises to dawn chimes. But Kyja is a girl who can do no magic, and isn’t affected by magic – or so she thinks.
Meet Master Therapass, a powerful wizard who has kept a dangerous secret for thirteen years. When the Dark Circle discovers the secret, the two worlds of Marcus and Kyja collide. Together they must outsmart the Dark Circle and travel to Water Keep — the first elemental that can help them defeat the Dark Circle.
Farworld is full of suspense, humor, and surprising twists that will keep readers of any age guessing.
