ESME’S WISH is the first in an exciting new fantasy series from Odyssey Books. When fifteen-year-old Esme Silver sets out to search for her missing mother, Ariane, she is transported to the alternate realm of Aeolia: a world enchanted by the gods, and steeped in myth and magic. With her newfound friends, Daniel and Lillian, Esme retraces her mother’s steps in the glittering canal city of Esperance, untangling the threads of Ariane’s double life. But the more Esme discovers about her mother, the more she questions whether she ever really knew her at all.
With themes of friendship, loyalty, and the unique bond between mother and child, ESME’S WISH is a whimsical tale for younger teens and tweens.
“A fresh new fantasy of an enchanting world.” -Wendy Orr, author of NIM’S ISLAND and DRAGONFLY SONG.
“Esme’s Wish is a beautiful example of a light, friendship-focussed fantasy, which I can see appealing to avid, peer-absorbed, teenage readers, with a yen for escapism… and dragons.” -Brydie Wright, Goodreads.
“Superbly-written fantasy adventure by a talented debut author, I so enjoyed diving into the world of Aeolia with Esme as she searched for her mother and found friends, magic, and mystery along the way. The world-building was a treat, and the prose flows like water.” -Jessica Lim. Goodreads.
