Review: The Chronicles of Trellah by T.S Graham

Book Description

 March 10, 2012
"The World's Toughest Book Critics" have weighed in, and it's high praise for Trellah!

"An excellent choice for readers eager for a suspenseful, emotionally satisfying fantasy adventure."  -Kirkus Book Reviews (full review below)

Fourteen-year-old Sophina Murray will be the first to tell you: Bad luck comes in threes. First, her father is lost at sea. Then, the rains start. And don't stop. And finally, her little brother is taken from his bed by a monster straight from her worst nightmare. A glimpse into the parallel universe of Trellah - a land of giant trees, bizarre creatures, and a glowing red mineral with mystical properties - convinces Sophina that all may not be lost. But first, she'll have to survive in a hostile world where her darkest fears live and breathe.

Trellah is an original and realistic fantasy for ages 12 to 112. Parental guidance suggested for advanced readers ages 10-11 for moderate elements of horror.


I adored this book, what a great fun story about Sophina a fourteen year old girl, whose father is lost at sea and her little brother kidnapped, no one believes her about what did it. Her favorite teacher that lives next door, behaves suddenly very strange. Sophina doesn't trust it, when she sees a strange light she goes to check it out, convinced it has to do with her brothers kidnapping. The town they live in has to deal with weird storms. Soon thing go from bad to worse.

She follows her teacher through a portal into the world of Trellah and there a wonderful adventure starts. She gets confronted with scary stuff, but she is determine to find her brother and bring him home safe. She has to go through a lot before that happens. she meets all kinds of creatures, scary, hostile and friendly. If she will find her brother and get out of the strange world, that is for you to find out. I loved every minute of this book and read it in one sit. I look forwards to a sequel!
