"Escape to Vindor" by Emily Golus is a fantasy that I really liked reading Maybe because I could actually see it in my mind as I was reading. I was thinking the whole time I was reading my grandson, ( aged 10) and granddaughter ( aged 17) would like this book.

This book has mermaids, pixies, centaurs, goblins and other mythical creatures. This book is like "Parent Trap" except it is a fantasy.

This book is a clean read as well as entertaining. 

I have already downloaded the second book in this series from Kindle Unlimited because the ending just made want to read more.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit. These opinions are my own.

More from Emily

In Escape to Vindor, teen Megan Bradshaw spends nearly every quiet moment she has in a world of her own imagination. Writing this part of Megan’s story came naturally to me, because that was the way I spent my adolescence, too.
While other girls were thinking about—I don’t know what they were thinking about, actually. Boys, maybe?—I was creating epic melodramas about rival mermaid queens or magical rainforest civilizations. The world of my imagination filled my quiet life with vivid technicolor.
My stories also helped me survive. Worldbuilding was a welcome escape from my ever-growing list of fears.
See, I was the extra-good girl, the one who followed every rule to a T, always giving a hundred and ten percent. Few people suspected I did all of this not because I had a lot of drive and confidence, but because I thought I had to be extra-perfect in order to be loved—by people, and by God. I had a deep-seated terror of making one little mistake, losing my way, and being abandoned forever.
The world of Vindor started out as a private daydream, a way for me to work through my anxieties. But as I grew, I discovered something amazing—and the story took an unexpected turn.
I wrote Escape to Vindor for the dreamers, the bookworms, and anyone who enjoys dazzling new worlds. More importantly, I wrote it for the quiet ones who struggle without anyone knowing, who need to hear: You are seen, you are known, and you are loved.
