Review of Akasha by Heather Tregaskes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Nicole is a seventeen year old girl whose life is going just as planned, she has a wonderful fiancé who will be her husband in a couple of days, a mother who loves her and a best friend she could never live without. But her small town secluded from cities gets unwanted visitors near the woods. The town’s people call them "gypsies" and fear their magical ways. Nicole’s life is changed forever when her mother comes home in a hurry to get her daughter out of town, confused she refuses to leave her life behind. Then the unspeakable happens and her mother and home are taken away from her in a sudden fire and the town’s people blame her and want to get rid of her.

This is where the "gypsies" come in and take Nicole away from the town who thinks she's evil and little does Nicole know she has more in common with these unknown people than she thinks. Learning the ways of living as an outside with them and meeting the mysterious Bryshen who’s hard to figure out and hard to stay away from. Nicole must learn to fight the evil that not only took her mother away but also is now coming after her.
Nicole’s character frustrated me a lot through out the book, but I feel it was needed so that I could understand what she was going through. Her life took a massive turn for the worst and she had to figure out how she was going to survive it.
Bryshen was my favorite character because he was a mystery through a majority of the beginning. He avoids Nicole like the plague and through the book he really grew on me and I just loved the development.
Akasha is one of those books that makes you grateful it popped out of nowhere. Beautifully written and its a plot that is original, which made me love it that much more. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys reading about magic, love, family, and lots of exciting twist and turns.
