Willow Bloom’s biggest challenge is to organise her thirteenth birthday party. However, a walk in the woods near her home provides some big surprises – a mystical guardian from another world, a magical forest, and the discovery that her parents are part of a secret order that protects dreams. With the discovery comes a calling. A prophecy tells of a young one who can push back the dark forces that threaten to corrupt our hopes and dreams. Is Willow that young one? Can she take on the forces of evil, the Underlord Maliceius, and win?
Thank you to Rockstar Book Tours for letting me be a part of this wonderful tour!
This is quite possibly one of the most wholesome books I’ve read in a hot minute. Willow is absolutely charming, and we have actual great, present parents! That’s something that I feel like a lot of fantasy middle grade reads lack.
My only complaint is that at the very beginning, there’s so much info just kinda thrown into the reader’s-and Willow’s-face. But it does pick back up after that.
I give it 4 out of 5 TriGamons!

The inspiration behind the book: I wanted to write a book that inspired and empowered our next generation of people. With so many dystopian views and stories out there, I felt it was important to portray a more hopeful future.
