    Ruth Silver is one of my favorite authors, her books are always well paced, original, and beautifully written She also happens to be the author of one of my favorite dystopian series, Aberrant Check out my review here AberrantOrenda is a book full of fantasy and adventure I have been getting tired of dystopian so Orenda was a breath of fresh air There is romance, adventure, tough decisions, and some strong heroines Lil and Willow The idea of a parallel universe is always intriguing to me Ruth Silver is one of my favorite authors, her books are always well paced, original, and beautifully written She also happens to be the author of one of my favorite dystopian series, Aberrant Check out my review here AberrantOrenda is a book full of fantasy and adventure I have been getting tired of dystopian so Orenda was a breath of fresh air There is romance, adventure, tough decisions, and some strong heroines Lil and Willow The idea of a parallel universe is always intriguing to me because it seems somewhat plausible in mind I am not saying I believe in aliens but I think it might be a bit naive to think we are the only life form in the whole universe Anyways, Lil and Willow are so very different on certain aspects but very similar on others They are willing to go to extreme lengths to save the ones they love To avoid any spoilers, I will just say that Lil is asked summoned to Willow s universe because they need her help and she has to decide what she will risk to do so.I loved this book and it only got better the second time I read it I already can t wait for the second book Ruth is quite extraordinary when it comes to publishing a ton of books so I hope it wouldn t take too long to get the next one

    I thoroughly enjoyed the settings and characters of Orenda Ruth Silver does a very good job setting up the different personalities and changing the view point so you get a feel for everything that is happening I wish she had taken sometime explaining the differences and mystic side of Orenda I really hope she givesdetailing in the next book It s a fascinating concept My main complaint is pacing and I m not entirely sure what was happening romance wise It s hard to describe with I thoroughly enjoyed the settings and characters of Orenda Ruth Silver does a very good job setting up the different personalities and changing the view point so you get a feel for everything that is happening I wish she had taken sometime explaining the differences and mystic side of Orenda I really hope she givesdetailing in the next book It s a fascinating concept My main complaint is pacing and I m not entirely sure what was happening romance wise It s hard to describe without giving away spoilers I understand why the path with the main romance was taken but it feels incomplete and rushed More like an after thought it finish a plot line I would recommend this book for younger viewers More like tween level With a little bit of tweaking for that age I could easily see this becoming the next big thing Complimentary copy given for an honest review by This Redhead LOVES Books blog

    Lil discovers an alternate world similar to her own, including Willow, Lil s very own doppelganger In Orenda, Willow has a younger brother, Jamie, the same age as Lil s younger sister, Jamey But that s not where the weirdness ends When Lil accidentally ends up in Orenda, and her best friend, Bray, comes looking for her, her life becomes a nightmare She s forced to rescue Willow and Bray from an evil sorceress who brought about the Scourge to Orenda and plans on doing the same in Lil s world Lil discovers an alternate world similar to her own, including Willow, Lil s very own doppelganger In Orenda, Willow has a younger brother, Jamie, the same age as Lil s younger sister, Jamey But that s not where the weirdness ends When Lil accidentally ends up in Orenda, and her best friend, Bray, comes looking for her, her life becomes a nightmare She s forced to rescue Willow and Bray from an evil sorceress who brought about the Scourge to Orenda and plans on doing the same in Lil s world.She meets Willow s boyfriend, Rawlie and his good looking cousin, Hudson, who may or may not have a thing for Lil They go to the Fae for help, and everything culminates in a pretty intense climax, with the door wide open for a sequel and a return visit to Orenda.PlotThe story opens with a bang, but then takes its time getting back there The plot moves, but also sort of meanders in that movement All Lil initially wants is to go home, but she can t do that without Willow s help, nor can she leave her best friend, Bray, behind There were several really good plot twists I never saw coming.The book is pretty short, particularly for the fantasy genre Many events are told to us rather than being shown I think this could have been a really engaging read, where I was completely immersed in the world of Orenda, with a little deeper point of view and drawing out some of the pivotal moments a littleBut the story is definitely interesting and I will definitely read Elfinland, book 2 in the series, when it comes out.World BuildingThe world building is good Orenda is fascinating place, and I would have loved for the author to have spenttime drawing me into it, showing meof this world Most fantasy is really heavy on world building, and I felt Orenda could have used a bitIt s an intriguing place, but I feel like we ve only really scratched the surface instead of being immersed in it.CharactersBecause Ruth Silver uses third person point of view, it s difficult to get very deep into any one character and the random head hopping can be distracting But the characters are interesting and not stereotypical It would have been nice to get a little deeper inside their heads, though.Top Five Things I Enjoyed About Orenda1 The Lil Willow dynamic These two doppelgangers are not the same and their love hate relationship with each other is snappy.2 The Lil Jamey and Willow Jamie relationships I love the sibling love between these kids.3 Hudson He s probably the most interesting character in the story I can t wait to seeof him in the next book.4 Orenda Although I feel like I need to knowabout it, the pink skies alone have me itching to go back.5 The infinity suit Because who doesn t want clothes that can save your life Bottom LineOrenda is a decent first book in a fantasy series that lacks some depth, but is a fun, fast read.DisclaimerI was provided with a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review
