The Amberstone: Saving the Flame

In the early years of the Planet Vale, a healer named Alma is forced to become a flame inside an amberstone. When Carrie leans on a meteorite in her rock garden, she is pulled onto the planet Vale, where she finds the Amberstone. Alma speaks to Carrie, begging her to go to Lobo the Gray Wolf. Carrie and Alma have to brave an old manor, floods, and even people they thought were friends. However, with the help of Alma, Carrie finds friends in places she never thought possible.

I thought this book was very good. The author did a great job of having Carrie find courage within herself. There were a few problems though. To understand thoroughly the book, you really should read the prologue, and it I thought it took until chapter 5 for the story to become exciting. Another thing that might be a problem for some readers is that you see through the eyes of so many different characters that the story can get a little confusing. The plot was great; Carrie and Alma have to face obstacles that make the book interesting. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a new adventure.
