The Earthwalker Trilogy
Publication Date: May 20, 2016
Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy
Inspired by the Rumpelstiltskin fairy tale, Wynnona Hendricks finds herself caught between the realms of Heaven, Hell, and Earth, fighting for her right to live.
The Demon Lord, Aidan, has activated her latent powers carefully hidden behind a mortal facade and now, she must conquer the Seven Deadly Sins or be sent to Hell herself as one of his minions. The only one who seems to believe in her is Caleb, the angel who chose to spare her life rather than risk the shedding of innocent blood, but by doing so, may have started a war between the factions, throwing the Mortal Realm into mayhem.
Follow Wynn as she fights to protect her family from being ripped apart, including her mother, who isn’t what she seems.
I’m going to urge you to not take this book at face value. Demon Dialysis begins as a pretty typical ya contemporary, but by the end of the first chapter is very clearly NOT. At first glance, things come to Wynn and are accepted by her too easily, but as you read you learn that there is much more to the story, much of it was before she was even conceived so it couldn’t possibly be a coincidence. I was immediately drawn in by Siddoway’s enticing and lulling prose, and I appreciated her inclusion of some very popular myths while still making them her own. Her universe is one close enough to ours to seem real, yet not entirely. I find it telling that Wynn is in a near-constant state of disbelief yet she keeps going forward as best as she can- that makes for a strong MC with whom I can find myself siding. She’s thrown into some things beyond her control and she still tries to help those she cares for and continues to find answers even when it seems for naught. I am totally on edge waiting for the next book in the trilogy!
