Adela Arthur and the Creator's Clock

by Judyann McCole

This book 1 of 5 for The Chronicle of A Genre: Fantasy
To Who Ever This May Concern; I wish I could tell you the contents of this book were purely fictional. That I, Adela Arthur, was just a normal sixteen year old from Portland and that dragons, giants, elves and mermaids were just myths. I wish these were legends shared from crazy old grandparents to crazy old grandparents around campfires. After all, that is what I used to believe.I never would have thought they lived on the other side of our mirrors in a world called Cielieu. But they do…I never would have thought there were humans, better known as Volsin that lived among them with the ability to create light from a single thought. But there are…I never would have thought I was one of them… But I am… I am the last Arthur and I was brought to the human world after a Volsin, filled with greed, began to strip the light from our kind.The human world was supposed to be a safe haven… but he’s found us and the only way to stop him is to go back to Cielieu and begin training as a student in the Elpida Castle of Light.Like I said I wish the contents of this book were purely fictional and not my life…  

Adela Arthur is now on amazon on Paperback | Kindle

Jenn's Review:
I have to start the review off by saying I’m a huge Harry Potter fan.  As in, I lined up at bookstores to get the last few books at midnight.  I wasn’t sure about reading something that seemed very similar from the synopsis.  Yes there are a lot of similarities, but the book has its own merits.  There is a strong female heroine, the plot moves at a pretty good pace, and the dialogue is authentic. Yes, there are times when it seems that the author has taken a bunch of elements of the Harry Potter books (1-4 specifically), mixed them up a bit, changed genders and names, and put them back; but if you enjoyed the Harry Potter series that isn’t a bad thing.  If you didn’t enjoy the Harry Potter series, then this isn’t the right book for you.  If you really loved the Harry Potter series and don’t want to read anything that could be considered derivative, I wouldn’t recommend this book either.
That said, Adela Arthur and the Creator’s Clock is a fun fantasy read for the young adult set.  Adela is a typical teenager – she flips between being whiny at the start to strong and forceful when she needs to be.  Her best friend Hector is a good foil for her character and provides some good continuity when the scene shifts from our world to the other realm of Cielieu.  The characters are easy to relate to and the action and adventure kept my interest.
