Essence (Nymphs of Macedonia Trilogy #1) Reviews
I won this book from Mrs. Racheal herself. And I am so glad I did. Not only was it a great read but it kept me turning the pages. Essence is about nymphs, gypsies, and magic.Chrysanthe or as everyone calls her Chrys is one of the powerful nymphs that is underage. She has had tragedy in her life, and to top it all off everyone see her as different, except her best friend Galene. She likes to keep her head down and not draw attention to herself. But as humans come into the grove and she finds out they are gypsies she falls in love with one. Even though it is forbidden, her mother has plans for her that Chrys does not want to follow through with. When their Chief Supreme becomes deathly ill, Chrys makes it her mission to find out what has caused this illness, in the mist of finding out the truth she also finds out who killed her father. If you enjoy magic and little bit of mystery I suggest you give this book a read. I see it is only book 1 and I can not wait to read book 2! Thank you Racheal for allowing me to read your book it was a wonderful read!

7*s. I recieved a paperback copy of this book directly from the author in return for an honest review.This is an adorable and magical love story between a nymph and a gypsy that will melt your heart. Its very well written but was a little slow for me, especially at the beginning. I fell in love with the characters, especially Chrysanthe and Galene. I totally fell in love with those two characters. This is a MUST read YA love story that will tear at your heart strings and ready for the next big adventure. Thank you, Racheal McGillivary, for this cute story!!
This is my neighbor in the flat adjacent to me. She really is an amazing writer. This her first attempt at at self publishing.
