When Abbey Shader is summoned to Ethra, a land where human qualities roam free in flesh known as Essences, her life and the universe as she knows it splits open before her.

With the expansive secrets of humanity at her fingertips, Abbey's strength of will and heart are put to a test no amount of time or meticulous study could have prepared her for.

Left to decide between the comfort of the familiar and the potential enlightenment of the strange, Abbey is thrust into a journey that demands more of her at every turn. She must learn to trust what she sees, and trust what she can't.

Essence marks the first instalment in the young adult fantasy series, The Essence Chronicles.

Review quote

'I found myself laughing, rolling my eyes, blinking back tears, and staring at my tablet with my jaw dropped. All good emotions to have while reading any book.' - Samantha

'I have read books about vampires, werewolves, fae, witches, and even incubi, but I have never read anything like this. It was so fascinating and refreshing to read something entirely new to me...' - Abbey

'I rooted for them and felt their hope and anguish deeply. The plot was unique and pulled me in quickly. I needed to know this world inside and out.' - Alex
