In WhipEye, Samantha starts off being just a quiet, sad girl who talks to a parrot to let go of her feelings. Little does she know that her life is going to change because of that. Charlie (the parrot) starts talking to her one day; he says that she has to rescue him, or the owner of the pet shop (a very bad guy who captures other animals like Charlie and uses them for his own power) will kill him. When she takes him home, the boy next door finds out and wants to help. When they are safe, Charlie gives both of them one of his feathers to see magical things. When the owner comes to the house, Samantha, Charlie, and Jake go to Rose’s house. They find out that she can do magic too. To escape the owner, they go into a secret doorway to a different land to save the world from being enslaved by the owner. Rose gives Samantha WhipEye (a magical stick that has a lot of power and can bring the inhabitants of this land forth). Nobody there wants to help except for one (Tarath). Will they be able to save humanity?
The plot really shows how amazing this book is. I love how there were so many details in the story; it really makes you feel as if you are in the story. The story itself is pure genius, because put together a villain, two heroes, a savior, magical creatures, and slaved magical creatures, and you have an awesome story. It’s the uniqueness of it that makes it worth reading. Both of the main characters are going through hard times, so it puts the story together. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
