Alexandra Stone, better known as Alex to her friends and family is like any fourteen year-old with concerns of what to do on a Friday night to babysitting responsibilities. The life Alex knows so well changes the day she recites a chant with her best friend, Sarah after being knocked on the head by a small pink rock. The chant is from her English teacher Mr. Ritchie’s book and before she realizes it Alex and Sarah are transported to a mystical world with her dog, Butch and his squirrel buddy, Pops.
“Glitter I toss, safely I will cross, into your realm it will lead, the rock I possess, evil digress, the Queen I am to thee.” Their life in Greendale Park has vanished and they are shined upon by two moons in the starless night. From talking trees and animals they find themselves thrust into a mystical adventure where Alex is considered the “enchanted one” of royal lineage and must concur “Dread.”
The decisions made along the way will test their friendship, trusting your instincts that, ‘things are not always what they appear’ and the endurance of family.
Lea Schizas intertwines two parallel worlds together with believable ease. The powerfulness of “The Rock of Realm,” will leave you wanting more. You will route for Alex and Sarah and their counterparts from the onset. Cheers to Lea Schizas for a well crafted flight through the fantasy world.
