Aurora Firedrake returns in the spellbinding sequel to The Last of the Firedrakes.
The seven kingdoms of Avalonia are crumbling and evil is spreading across the land like a plague. Queen Morgana is close to finding a way to open The Book of Abraxas and it’s only a matter of time until she uses the power trapped inside its pages to enslave the entire world.
With Avalonia growing more dangerous by the day, Aurora must travel through war-torn lands and deep into the heart of the fae kingdom of Elfi. Her goal is to find a legendary weapon infused with the last of the realm’s ancient magic—the only weapon in the world powerful enough to stop the queen.
Aurora might have survived her first battle against Morgana, but the true fight to save her kingdom and restore her throne has only just begun…
Wow! Just Wow!!
From the very first page I was in awe of this authors world building ability! She really brought the realm of Avalonia alive for me! I could see it, hear it, smell it and feel it! Having not read the first book in this series I was not expecting it at all. The author really has shown amazing talent through her descriptions of the world around Aurora.
I loved the twists and turns in the plot throughout it really kept the pace up and didn’t give the reader time to bore of the story line! There is a bit for everyone, betrayal, disappointments, romance and battles! Seriously what is not to love!
I really enjoyed the writers ability to pull me into her story and it is testament to her talent that I could feel fully involved in the story without having read the first book!
