The Rise of the Dawnstar
by Farah Oomerbhoy
(The Avalonia Chronicles #2)
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult
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…
It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to dive into a good book. Life just keeps getting in the way. I was offer the chance to read and review The Rise of The Dawnstar and I was drawn in by the cover (I know! Don’t judge a book by it’s cover and all but look at that amazing artwork!!). This is the first of the series I read and it was fantastic. It does well as a stand alone title but I’m off to read the first. This story was well written and will draw you in from the start. If you’re looking for a great fantasy read this should be on your list. Head over to Xpresso Book tours and take a look at the book tour page to find out more about this title and see other reviews.
