Book review: Eudaimonia, by Cedric Aubert

. tata.lifepages | Gifted | YA fantasy |

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

The story follows young Maya, who is swept away unexpectedly to Eudaimonia, a magical land full of mysterious creatures and kingdoms. As Maya progresses on her journey trying to find a way to return home to Earth, she makes various allies from unique lands who join along with her on her mission. The plot is direct and simple, it does not linger on world-building or character development. It is intended for a younger audience (middle grade and young teens) who like an action-packed story that flows easily, without being too descriptive. I would have definitely LOVED this book when I was a teen, the creatures that Maya encounters are all so unique, I found the Anthrolite the most intriguing!

Eudaimonia book 1#
"They were colourless, dressed in grey rags, and if it was not for the fact that they were moving they would be indistinguishable from the rocky surroundings."

There are a lot of unique and intriguing creatures throughout the story which gives it a lot of potential for a very fun and magical series. There are some loose ends throughout the book that very likely will be answered in the sequels. Maya has an mysterious connection to the land and creatures of Eudaimonia. The ending was unexpected and I am anxious to know what it means in the next book of the series.
