Description

In Victorian England two sisters, Tabitha and Beatrice, return home for the first time since their mother mysteriously disappeared three years ago.

Upon the night of a blue moon, Tabitha discovers a secret in her father’s study – a portal to another world called Torvicia – which may provide the answer to all of her questions. But Torvicia is at war and a sinister threat brews in the north. The Jotnar, a race of demi-god giants, possess the means to sway the balance, especially Alfarin, the mightiest of them all.

Tabitha finds herself unwittingly at the heart of a council, made up of creatures who believe she is key in finding Alfarin and saving Torvicia from the impending evil.

Tabitha embarks on a seemingly impossible and dangerous quest, along with her party of fantastical beasts. Will she find Alfarin and finally learn the truth about her mother’s disappearance?

With roots in myth and legend, The Search for Alfarin is a rich and magical blend of historical, action and fantasy fiction.

In Victorian England two sisters, Tabitha and Beatrice, return home for the first time since their mother mysteriously disappeared three years ago.

Torvicia – The Search for Alfarin
N A Hampshire
The setting is Victorian England. Three years previously Tabitha and Beatrice’s mother disappeared. Suddenly the house was filled with police and the girls were sent to live with their grandparents in London. They had little to no contact with their father for three years. However, now the girls were home along with Mr. Buttler, a guardian assigned to keep an eye on them by their grandparents. Tabitha was 9 years old when her mother disappeared; she is filled with unanswered questions. On the Blue Moon she finds a strange portal in her father’s study. Could this be the answer to all her questions? Could this be the answer to where her mother went. The portal leads to another realm, Torvicia. The realm is at war. Alfarin is a the strongest of the Jotnar (demi-gods). The Torvicians believe he is the only one that stop the war and protect the realm.
The council of Torvicia is made up of unusual creatures; they turn to Tabitha believing she can find Alfarin and save Torvicia. She agrees to help. Tabitha and her companions begin the search for Alfarin. Could the journey bring answers to her mother’s disappearance?
What a delightful children’s book. It would make a great movie. At nighttime parents need a good book to read to their children. Something that will catch a child’s interest. I can’t help but think of some of my favorites when I was growing up: The Never Ending Stort, A Wrinkle In Time, and so many more. These are all books that spark the imagination. Torvicia - The Search for Alfarin is sure to become a favorite.
Thank you NetFallley for providing me with a cope of this book for review.

I really enjoyed the blend of historical and fantasy in this fiction novel. The characters felt like they belonged in this time-period, it uses the Victorian England element perfectly and had that feel that I was looking for. N A Hampshire wrote this perfectly and was glad I got to read this. I enjoyed the mystery element to this and left me wanting more.
