The Mansion’s Twins by Rose M. Channing
Published July 23rd 2014 by Createspace
Goodreads Summary: Ellie and Savannah Senka, fourteen year old twins, ran away from their unhappy homes, thinking they’d return after a brief adventure. Together, they journey to another world. The new world is full of magic, but though it was once beautiful, it is damaged, unbalanced, and dangerous after a terrible storm. Ellie and Savannah may be the only ones with the power to restore the world to its original state, for the magic of twins is rare and powerful. The girls are welcomed into a grand mansion, the safest place in the aftermath of the storm. There, they learn who they are, and what they have to do. To restore the world, they must travel through the mansion to the center of magic and reset the balance. They discover their own magical abilities, find joy and friendship in the mansion’s family, and face the dangers of the storm’s left-behind magic. The journey to the center of magic is full of twists and turns, magic and excitement. Ellie and Savannah support each other to overcome obstacles along the way, knowing the whole world is depending on them.
Review: If you are looking for a new YA fantasy then you should definitely check this book out. Ellie and Savannah are twins born in an alternate world who are separated as babies in our world. As tweens, they find each other and end up traveling back to their original world and learn that their destiny is to restore and save the Mansion and keep it out of the hands of darkness. It’s a magical coming of age story complete with action, drama and comedy. I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the characters and it was really interesting to watch the twins grow and get used to their new world.
