Sasha is whisked away from Earth to a magical world where plots are afoot and many adventures begin. These involve her mother, a pirate, mages and the king. She struggles to know who to trust while a romantic element enters the fray. A host of characters are introduced and developed. The plot moves along at a reasonable pace and the general effect is enjoyable and I liked this novel more than I thought that I would. Perhaps aimed at a female readership as the main protagonists are mainly women. Ending on a bit of a cliffhanger, the series continues in another book.
