Shadows & Voices by Jason Ellis

Shadows & Voices (Holly Silverstone, #1)

Publication Date: March 7, 2012

Book Description: (taken from amazon)

Meet young Holly Silverstone, the girl who sees daisies turn to butterflies ... who dreams of places that she has never been to ... who is invited to study at the elusive and enchanting Highlands Academy of truth and excellence.

The voices will come, one-thousand and one, the voices will come. Fear is the key, fear to see. The voices will come, one-thousand and one, the voices will come.

As Holly took a sip of her tea and held the piece of paper between her fingers, veins of ink slowly crept across the paper. She wanted to drop it and scream … yet a more powerful part of her made the fingers on her hands grasp the letter even tighter and her eyes open wider.
The ink seeped and whirled around, forming words;

We have a question for you, Holly.
Do you want to know how the daisies turned to butterflies?

I was given this book by the author for my honest opinion.

My Opinion:

Holly is a very special girl, she has magic. Well she has magic in her and she goes to a school for people like her. This book is surrounded by Holly but around magic and how to live with it. I wish I could escape to this school. Anyways, Holly goes to this magic school and she becomes really close friends with a teacher name Ovissa Slater. Who goes missing, and Holly is devastated. Then decides to start her own investigating and start looking for her friend.  The bad part about that situation is she gets into trouble and danger! You start to think why doesn’t she just give up will she?
I loved this book! I was on the edge of my seat for half of the book, and this book had me hooked from the beginning. There was so many parts of this book, well actually the whole book where you have to give your full attention to understand it. Which you should in all the books yoread. I felt for Holly throughout this book, with everything she went through even after her teacher goes missing is amazing. This author does a great job with detail and developing characters throughout the book without giving out everything in the beginning like some books.
