Publication Date : 15 August 2015
Blurb from Goodreads : 16-year-old Aurora Darlington is an orphan. Mistreated by her adopted family and bullied at school, she dreams of running away and being free. But when she is kidnapped and dragged through a portal into a magical world, suddenly her old life doesn’t seem so bad.
Avalonia is a dangerous land ruled by powerful mages and a cruel, selfish queen who will do anything to control all seven kingdoms—including killing anyone who stands in her way.
Thrust headlong into this new, magical world, Aurora’s arrival sets plans in motion that threaten to destroy all she holds dear.
With the help of a young fae, a magical pegasus, and a handsome mage, Aurora journeys across Avalonia to learn the truth about her past and unleash the power within herself. Kingdoms collide as a complicated web of political intrigue and ancient magic lead Aurora to unravel a shocking secret that will change her life forever.
Cover page : I am mesmerised by it. Read the book and than see it again. It do justice to the book.
Plot : When it starts, it may appear as a normal plot. Being abused, kidnapped, only heir of the magical world….. But when you read further it will turn out to be what you had mot expected.
Everything happens for a reason, and nothing is an accident. It is all part of a much larger divine plan,” Duke Silverthorne said gravely, but in a surprisingly kind voice. “When difficulties come, we must see them as what they are—opportunities and a new path to discover your potential. How will you ever know the magnitude of courage you are capable of if you have never experienced the hopelessness of fear?
I hope it said enough. 🙂
Overall : It is the first book in series and now I’m dying to know further. It ended in such a cliffhanger. Damn! Their is some romance between the lead and the one you would know who when you read but.. I hate him. He is such a jerk, arrogant. Lol. Sometimes you may get annoyed by Aurora also. She tend to have that effect on me. 😅 Still it is worth read for a fantasy lover.
