My Review:

The Bella Santini Chronicles weaves an epic story of magic, mystery, fantasy, friendship, and self-discovery, while demonstrating the transformative power of love. In book one Bella Santini in the Land of Everlasting Change, a boring camping trip turns into a breathtaking adventure for 14-year-old Bella, who gets mysteriously lured into a fairy ceremony and then becomes a prisoner in the Land of Everlasting Change. In order to survive in the fairy kingdom and blend in with the fairies in training, she has to pass a series of tests and trials before she can get admitted into the Yelimoon school of magic.

As a scheme to overthrow the throne hastily escalates into a war in book two Bella Santini in the Troll War, things grow even more fast-paced, challenging and unpredictable than in the first book. Although a brief and precise summary of what has happened in book one is provided in the sequel, you would want to start with book one in order to get a better understanding of the subtle relationships between Bella and her new friends, and the change of heart she is going through. In book one, Bella poses herself as a vigilant outsider in an exotic place where she doesn't belong, whereas she becomes more emotionally attached to the beings and more physically involved in the matters of the land in book two, especially after the astonishing revelation of her true identity.

Both books excel in their vivid depiction of sceneries and scenarios, making it easy to visualize the dazzling magical world the author has adeptly constructed. Expect to be fascinated by intricate spells, formidable force fields, massive energy battles, parallel dimensions, psychokinesis, teleportation, and anything related to magic! I'm especially impressed by how various forms of magic can be combined and sequenced strategically to achieve a goal. I also appreciate the author's effort to keep the description of actions on the battlefield kid-friendly.

The series has quite a few valuable messages to deliver. The most prominent one concerns emotional health. The author suggests that we acknowledge and accept our feelings, and let our emotions flow through healthy outlets instead of trying to suppress them. The process proves helpful when Bella learns to come to terms with her new identity. The story shows that love is the ultimate cure for all evil intentions. Together with friendship and teamwork, it can work magic. While set in an imaginary world, the story reveals realistic and relatable issues, such as sibling rivalry and bullying. In both books, the author urges parents to love their children unconditionally, respect their individuality and refrain from trying to mold them into someone they are not. The story also suggests that although war is inevitable at times, we should try to minimize the use of violence and leave room for reconciliation. True leaders should win the support of their people through love and care rather than suppression. 

Overall, the series is an entertaining and inspiring read for teen readers and beyond. Looking forward to the next book!

About the Author:

Angela Legh grew up in San Francisco, CA. She learned from her father that men were people to fear, and that anger is bad. She learned from her mother how to love unconditionally.

The first fire, when she was five, resulted in the children being sent away for months while her parents sought housing. The second fire, a disastrous California wildfire, caused Angela to question her choices in life; leave her marriage, and seek to find herself. Angela is now an author and self-development mentor.

Her children’s book series, The Bella Santini Chronicles, has received high praise and is known for helping children learn how to manage their emotions.
