Review - The Gemstone Chronicles Book One: The Carnelian

When Aidan and Maggie find a fairy cross while rock-hunting with their grandfather, it's just an oddity. But when they discover there is an elf imprisoned in the stone and set him free, they and their grandparents, Nana and Beebop, are attacked by Dark Elves and forced to flee to the magical world of Celahir.

In Celahir, Findecano - the elf the children freed from the fairy cross - leads them on a quest to recover gemstones stolen from the Elven Bow by the Dark Elves. Without the restoration of the gemstones to the Elven Bow, the balance between good and evil in Celahir - and the human world - could tip toward evil.

Book Breakdown 

This book was gifted to me in exchange for an honest review.

This story makes me feel like a little kid again, it's so cute and full adventure. This story follows Aidan and Maggie who are going to spend their summer with their grandparents. Magical adventures ensue with some amazing characters. This story is prefect for young kids and even an adult who's young at heart. It will appeal to fans of The Chronicles of Narnia. They both have the same vibe. This story is all it's own and just so much fun. I also think that even grandparents can get into this story. It also shows that grandparents rock! I think anyone would have a great time while reading this book!
