Abiola Bello is back with next instalment Emily Knight I Am Becoming, in the utterly magical Emily Knight series.
The second book –Emily Knight I am… Awakened- in the series was Carnegie-nominated and won London’s BIG Read 2019.
“Homecoming. Sacrifice. Family. Fire. The Knights are finally reunited and ready to defeat Neci once and for all. But Neci is one step ahead and is targeting them one by one. When one of Emily’s best friends is kidnapped, Emily leads the elite team on a rescue mission but nothing can prepare them for what Neci has planned.”
Emily Knight I am... Becoming continues the story of Emily, an extremely relatable character and in this book, we get to know her even more as she figures out her powers and save her friend from the evil Neci.
What makes Emily such an easy character to love and connect with is she experiences things that we’ve all experienced. Pressure of expectations put on us, trying to figure out who we are, family problems and trying to balance school. She is just a strong and well rounded protagonist that you feel like you know her.
Emily Knight I am... Becoming is the third and slightly darker book in the series but you don’t have to have read the others to be drawn into the story of Emily and her friends, a diverse group of equally strong characters who all bring something unique to the story.
With the Emily Knight series, yes it’s primarily aimed at children but it’s a series that regardless of age if you love fantasy or magic themed books, you will enjoy it.
Abiola Bello has created something extremely special with Emily Knight. Emily Knight I am... Becoming and the rest of the series are books that are timeless. You could read them as a child and love them. Then revisit them years later and still be swept up in Emily’s magical story.
