My Review

Alyssa, the protagonist of The Frights of Fiji is a twelve-year-old girl, orphaned from five years, is now living with her Uncle Bruce and Cousin Hailey. And then magic knocks on her life with a message written in raindrops on a window - "Your life will never be the same again, Alyssa McCarthy, as magic will interfere". Not surprisingly, my first thought on reading this was 'Harry Potter'. Alyssa's adventures are very different from Harry's journey. It is more reminiscent of Alice's adventures in Wonderland.

Alyssa is kidnapped by an evil wizard, but finds many good wizards, becomes friends with them, and discovers the enchanting world of magic. An interesting part of this magical world is that it is technologically advanced with internet and gadgets that are different from but parallel to the non-magical world. There's Enchanted World Network (think 'World Wide Web'), WiPad, and more.
Additionally, there are many magical creatures too, an example of which is centilede - a crocodile with a hundred legs.

The Frights of Fiji is an engaging tale of Alyssa's journey of experiences in a fantastical world.

Book Description:

A world of magic and adventure awaits…

Sent to live with her strict, aloof, and uncaring uncle after her parents are killed in a car accident, twelve-year-old orphan Alyssa McCarthy longs for the life she used to have—one filled with fun and love. Then one stormy night, a message appears in the raindrops on the window that will change everything.

"Your life will never be the same again, as magic will interfere."

Before long, Alyssa is kidnapped by Master Beau, a banished sorcerer with a mysterious connection to her who can only regain his power by weakening hers. Suddenly hurled into a world of wizardry filled with fantastical beasts and marvelous technology beyond her wildest imagination, Alyssa must defeat Master Beau if she ever wants to get home again. But Master Beau will stop at nothing, including using Alyssa’s friends, to ensure he is triumphant.

Originally titled "From Frights to Flaws", this story is the exciting and enchanting first book in the "Magical Missions" series.
