Astrid V.J.about this book: Enter a fantasy fairy tale world filled with magic, love and dogged determination. Elisabeth has magical abilities, but no one to train her. Her mother has passed away and she must prepare herself to fight the witches who brought on her mother's illness. With her trusty horse, Nyriana, Elisabeth makes daily excursions into the countryside where she teaches herself the basics. She also gets to know Richard better, and they fall in love - but they cannot act upon that love. Their society cannot accept it. While Elisabeth is distracted with her romantic adventure, the witches spin a fateful web around her, drawing her in. Can she succeed?
This is the first part of a two-part tale about a young woman finding her place in society and figuring out who she can be irrespective of social expectations. This book also engages with questions around social standards of beauty and teenage anxiety, as well as looking at issues, such as racism, abuse, class and much more. Additionally, transformation principles have been incorporated in this fictional piece, creating a new way to engage with transformation literature and the "self-help" genre.
