“Y-y-y-you,” he stammered, and Flissa turned to see he’d gone ashen. “T-t-t-two of you!”- Twinchantment. Galric, the servant boy, was not supposed to find out that Flissa and Sara are twins. When Flissa helped Sara through one of the dangerous obstacles her hood fell off and Galric knew that they were twins. “Flissa reached up and checked. Sure enough, her hood had fallen off. Their secret was out.”- Twinchantment.
This book is full of many shocks and surprises which will leave you wondering what is going to happen next.
Elise Allen shows two different personalities while telling the story through both Sara and Flissa. While Sara is easy to talk to but very clumsy, Flissa is very coordinated and athletic, but can’t talk to people like Sara can. Now as they got older, they began to notice they are the same but different. Sara is strong at heart while Flissa is physically very strong. Elise Allan helps show that these girls are completely in each different chapter told by one of the two twins.
All in all, this book is full of surprises and is told wonderfully through Sara and Flissa. You should buy this magical first book to the new riveting series; Twinchantment.
