It’s always enjoyable when books follow the magic spirit of Wonderland and take readers on journeys of pure imagination.
Sacred: Eslura’s Calling by M. C. Beeler takes us alongside Beatrice, a young girl who is overcoming her mother’s mysterious disappearance. When her foster parents send her off to summer camp and is bullied by the girls, Beatrice and her camp counselor, Reagan, comes to her rescue, they both find themselves warped into a magical world.
Once there, Beatrice and Reagan discover a shadowy figure and a usurper to this magical world known as Eslura threaten the peace, and magic, of the land.
There is a great element of nostalgia that pays homage to works like Bridge to Terabithia that will have younger reader’s imagination captured to the very end!
ABOUT THE BOOK
An orphaned girl. A mysterious new world. One connected fate.
When Beatrice Tidal is shipped off to summer camp by her foster parents, she expects the worst, but she does not expect to find herself pursued by a shadowy demon through a strange magical land where she must uncover the mystery of her past and rise to the challenges of her future.

Can Beatrice help these powerful Rulers and save Eslura from Obellius, or will the shadow of darkness fall forever over this sacred land?
