By Ruth Silver
Genre: YA/MG Fantasy
Publisher: Patchwork Press
Join forces with a parallel universe.
Dark forces, magical creatures, and the world Lil thought she knew collide when a dream transports her to the strange world of Orenda. Stunned and terrified, Lil comes face to face with her doppelganger, Willow, who possesses the ability to travel between the two worlds. Everything Lil knows logically says that Orenda can’t exist, but a small clue may be proof that it was more than an ordinary dream. With the threat of her sister in danger, Lil crosses dimensions but it may cost her even more than she bargained for. A sword wielding girl, the eternal suit, and a parallel universe come together in this action-packed Young Adult fantasy adventure that will keep readers of all ages turning the pages. Orenda is the first novel in the Orenda series.

Thank you to Patchwork Press and the author for a copy of this book for review.
All opinions are my own.
Let me start off saying I LOVED the first couple chapters of Orenda. I loved the relationship between Lil and Bray. You could clearly see he loved her as more then a friend. It was SO cute. Then the story continued.
Lil has a 'dream' where she comes face to face with a person who looks just like her and shares her name, along with other people that resemble people in her real life. Lil then sees a person she recognized from her dream out the window of her classroom. Lil rushes out of the class and follows the boy and is transported into a completely new place.
Lil is told that she needs to help the people of Orenda get rid of an evil lady that is ruining their world and wants to bring her destruction to Earth. When Bray is brought into the world Lil will do anything she has to to protect Bray and get both of them back to their neighborhood and out of Orenda.
I loved the world and characters that Ruth created. It contains the right amount of action and adventure. I hope that the author continues this series and I will be checking out her other books.
