Review

This is the type of book I love to do read.  It hooks you from the start and leaves you wanting  more. Full of magic, mystery and intrigue.

The story begins with our leading ladies Aurora living in hell. Her adoptive parents  have passed away and she is sent to live with her adopted  aunt, uncle and cousin . At home she is unloved and unwanted. Her school life isn’t any better.

Just when she thoughy her life coukdnt get any worse Aurora is whisked away to Redstone Manor on a spur of the moment “family trip”,  but her world is going to be changed  forever when she is pulled into the  world of Avalonia.

This a a beautifully writen story about discovering who you are and following  your destiny.   
Farah creates a story that weaves together the reality of our world with the fantasy world of Avalonia  to create a  storyline with a diverse and relatable characters.  

There is so much I would love to tell you but it would give to much away. So I will leave it at this if you love magic, mystery secrets  and perhaps  some romance, then you need to add this to your to read pile today.

I can not wait to see what will happen next.
