Fantasy Book Review: Journey Across the Hidden Islands

Journey Across the Hidden Islands by Sarah Beth Durst

Synopsis:
The traditional Emperor’s Journey is meant to be uneventful. But as the princesses Seika and Ji-Lin—twin sisters—travel to pay respects to their kingdom’s dragon guardian, unexpected monsters appear and tremors shake the earth. The Hidden Islands face unprecedented threats, and the old rituals are failing. With only their strength, ingenuity, and flying lion to rely on, can the sisters find a new way to keep their people safe?

Review:
Ji-Lin has trained to be her twin sister’s guardian, along with her trusted flying lion. Seika is the princess next in line for the throne. The young girls do not feel ready for their journey, but with the barrier failing, they need to seek out the dragon protector to renew their treaty.

Journey Across the Hidden Islands is a fun and exciting middle grade fantasy. From thrilling battles against monsters to intrigue and betrayal – I thoroughly enjoyed this unique, standalone novel. I especially loved the talking, flying lions. This is an inspiring and a feel good, coming-of-age story for all ages. It’s a fast-paced, easy read that is over all too soon.
