I loved this book. I have been wanting to read it from when it first appeared on amazon and was really excited when I could finally start. From the first page I sucked right into it and couldn't stop until I had read the past line.
This story is of a young girl aurora Darlington who was an orphan. She was mistreated by her aunt and picked upon by her cousin who always kept looking for ways to bring her down. She had a really hard life in which no one cared about her. But then she gets dragged against her will to another world and that's when her adventure starts.
I loved the world building of the story and the character development. In the beginning aurora is scared and whiny but slowly she gets to her feet and faces the challenges thrown at her with a dare. I also like the development of the other characters of the sort which weren't mere puppets but each of them had a distinct personality. And then there is rafe who was the best hero a story could have. He was mysterious and added a bit of suspense to the story. The story was fast paced and didn't drag but had enough details to keep it clear.
I also loved the writing style of the author. She made the whole story enchanting and impossible to put down. She brought to live a whole new world and created characters which will stick with you long after you have read the last page. And the main protagonist aurora is someone you will find yourself associating with and caring for. She isn't miss perfect who always does everything right. She is a real girl who makes mistakes, who falls apart but in the end she always gets up and never stops trying and that's the best thing about her.
All in all the story was totally unique and if you like stories like Percy Jackson and harry potter then I'm sure you'll love this one too.
The writing style is straight forward and very enjoyable. I loved that it is very fast paced and never boring. The only thing about the writing I found a little off was that a few sentences were repetitive. Aside from this minor thing, everything else was fantastic.
Another thing I LOVE about this book is all the food in it! Everytime the characters eat, the food is described in detail and I swear my mouth waters every single time! If only there was a device that brought book food to life!
And who can say no to a talking Pegasus? *Not me for sure*
It’s overall a fantastic fantasy novel that I’d recommend to everyone!

This book has been compared to Harry Potter by people. Personally I don’t see it and I say it in a not-mean way. Even though it has a school which teaches magic, that is where the similarities end. The type of magic taught and the magic usage are different. I love how the author brings a lot of classes and the food outdoor. It is definitely one of my dream fictional schools 😀
And let’s talk about Rafe being the Prince. I genuinely wish I hadn’t guessed this plot twist. I mean, I guessed it literally a few pages before the big reveal. Gah! I would have liked that shock to hit me in the face!
And the ending! Why?!?!?! Can’t Aurora just tell Rafe the truth about his evil bitch of a fiance? They could be together if she just told him.Read more ›
In the beginning of the story I found Aurora as a weak character but my impression changed with the progression of the story. I admired her as well as liked her for her ability of handling a situation. Apart from Aurora I have fallen for Rafe; he is a mysterious mage who has importance in Aurora’s life. I also liked Snow, kalen and Erin.
I’m highly impressed with the author’s crisp writing style. She hasn’t exaggerated any scene; all the scenes were written appropriately. The only problem was if I were a little younger, I would’ve enjoyed the book much more.
I loved reading this book and rooting more for Rafe and Aurora. I’m eagerly waiting for the next books on this series. This book is highly recommended to all fantasy readers. I will give this 4 out of 5 stars for the book itself; fantasy, adventure and romance all wrapped into a single unit.
There’s love, there is deceit, there’s mystery and there is romance, action and much more.
Characterization – The characters are well developed with all their imperfections. One can’t help love Aurora, be mesmerized with Rafe and hate Damien. The metamorphosis of Aurora from a weakling to a rebel to a powerful character one that’s not ready to take things lying down takes one by surprise. One can’t help but identify oneself with her at times. She’s confused like most 16 year old girls, is nervous when thrown in a new world just like any ordinary girl and is rebellious like most adolescents her age. In short, one can easily relate to her.
Language – Simple, crisp and lucid. The author has a way with words that’s helped her weave a magical story that ensnares the reader and makes him/ her impatient to know what happens next. One just can’t get out of the magical web till the end and even then one just can’t help wish that the next in the series i.e. the Avalonia Chronicles, were just a hand away.
Pace- Fast and exciting.
