    Reviewed By Chelsea Perry Official Apex Reviews Rating: 4 stars Despite being only eight years old, young Essalina soon finds herself confronted with greater challenges than many of those four- and five-times her age will ever endure...suddenly thrust in the midst of an intriguing fantasy world, Essalina embarks on a crucial quest to prevent the spread of evil from destroying all that the mystical land holds dear...however, what the brave young girl lacks in stature, she makes up for in courage and resolve – both of which she’ll need if she hopes to outwit the sinister Bruxa Ja’rh and their deadly ilk... A quick, yet enjoyable read, The Mothaich is an engrossing fantasy tale. In it, author Julie Hodgson has crafted an imaginative world full of unique, original characters who find their fates inexorably linked to the success of Essalina’s daunting trek.

    Having recently become a fan of Julie's work, I thought I might review what I have read so far. I loved this story, so full of fantasy and strange plants creatures of unknown quantity, left a lot to your imagination, my daughter so loved this story and often saw herself as the heroine Essy herself. I think Julie writes with a special touch for children who want to be the heros in stories but just cant quite make it in real life. A great story for the ordinary child.

    This book I read in an afternoon during last week. A marvelous story written with the intention to take the reader on a journey, each individual child would see herself as Essy as they read this wonderful tale. I would like to see this as an animated film, would realy bring the characters alive. LK

    "Amazing" This book is an amazing little book. Kept my daughter rivited to the pages , not even wanting to have her meals. Its not often that books like this capture a childs imagination. It is different as well as a page turner. It sounds like you have left the book wide open for further stories. A clever use of old Gaelic words too. Well done Julie
