“Life is full of crossroads, Alex. Full of choices.”
Returning for a second year at Akarnae Academy with her gifted friends, Alexandra Jennings steps back through a doorway into Medora, the fantasy world that is full of impossibilities.
Despite the magical wonder of Medora, Alex’s life remains threatened by Aven Dalmarta, the banished prince from the Lost City of Meya who is out for her blood.
To protect the Medorans from Aven’s quest to reclaim his birthright, Alex and her friends seek out the Meyarin city and what remains of its ancient race.
Not sure who – or perhaps what – she is anymore, all Alex knows is that if she fails to keep Aven from reaching Meya, the lives of countless Medorans will be in danger. can she protect them, or will all be lost?
I thought that Akarnae was good, but I couldn’t put Raelia down! My poor partner was forced to deal with a book faced girlfriend for the ten or so hours that it took to read this. He was so frustrated that he offered to throw this amazing book in the bin. So needless to say, it is one of my new favourite books. I mean, you know a book is fantastic when someone can’t put it down and completely ignores their entire family for a whole day (alright, I do this often, but still…)
Noni’s extension of the world of Medora continued to pull me deeper and deeper into Alex’s reality. I’m so in love with it that part of me wishes that Medora was an actual place! Sometimes it’s hard to relate to created realities. I love Anne McCaffrey, but I have to keep reading passages to understand the world of Pern. But Medora isn’t like this. It’s so damn similar to what we all experience every day that it’s like stepping into your own skin – easy, comfortable and right.
Raelia took me on a rollercoaster of emotions as I travelled with Alex and her friends – it made me laugh, cry and gasp out loud. It was just lucky that I was reading at home (I might have been a little scary if I had have done this on the bus…) The emotions just kept on building until finally it ended in an incredibly heart stopping conclusion! I love when books do this, but I also hate it when the next book in the series isn’t out yet. So now I will just have to wait until next year before I can read more about the fantastic world of Medora.
