Evah & the Unscrupulous Thwargg by Longoria Wolfe is a beautiful story for fans of young adult fantasy and science fiction that follows Evah Ahtochi, a girl who is bullied and lives in fear. Evah has a strong imagination that conjures up strange and frightening visions. But the most troubling thing is that some of the things she imagines become real. Then she discovers that she has ties to an ancient tribe with abilities that defy modern technological power, but that tribe has gone extinct, and Evah might be the only hope of reviving it. But she has a lot to handle, including the strange phenomena that assail her. Follow her journey as she unearths, layer after layer, her dark history, and the insurmountable challenges she must face fulfilling a destiny she never asked for.
Evah & the Unscrupulous Thwargg by Longoria Wolfe is a fascinating story with a young female protagonist that I rooted for. The author has a unique skill for filling the writing with strong imagery. Even from the beginning, I knew I would enjoy this book from the vivid descriptions featured about the eight-eyed monster that the young girl imagines, a monster with five arms and tongues flipping about from every palm. The emotional intensity of the story doesn’t slow at any moment, and the compelling characters, including the villains, add to the complexity of the plot. The world-building is impeccable and the reader finds themselves transported to different and exciting worlds. Longoria Wolfe is a great storyteller, an entertainer who has crafted a story with fictional characters that feel real and an imagined universe that is irresistible to explore.
