Seasons Within: Nature Has Its Own Will by Lele Iturrioz is an epic fantasy for young readers. But what did I just say? No, it’s a fantasy for young readers or young adult readers, but it will also be a thrill read for fantasy fans of all ages. Meet G, a girl who knows nothing about the first six years of her life. Simply known as G, she doesn’t even know that the silver locket around her neck with the letter “G” engraved on it is more than a piece of jewelry — it’s a secret to her past and her mission. G has been haunted by unusual nightmares of war, but a boy with blue fire always saves her. Now she is eighteen and things begin to make sense when she meets her chemistry teacher, a man who reminds her so much of the boy in her dreams. Could he be the key to unravelling the mystery about her past and her incredible mission?
Lele Iturrioz has woven a fantastic story, a tale of a heroine that readers will love to follow. I was fascinated at the way the protagonist is developed, a character whose life is mysterious, even to herself. I loved her determination to discover the truth and how she develops her confidence and learns to rely on her instincts. The prose is awesome, rippling with wonderful, insightful descriptions and vivid images. Lines like these ones fill the writing: “On that night, there was no music and laughter. The only thing anybody could hear were screams and the desolate pleas of the inhabitants. Fear, pain, and unimaginable loss.” Seasons Within: Nature Has Its Own Will has the sweetness and beauty of the honeycomb. You’ll be seduced and inebriated with the delights of the writing, elated by the unexpected surprises, and learn to care about the lovely characters.
