Synopsis: 16-year-old Aurora Darlington is an orphan. Mistreated by her adopted family and bullied at school, she dreams of running away and being free. But when she is kidnapped and dragged through a portal into a magical world, suddenly her old life doesn’t seem so bad.
Avalonia is a dangerous land ruled by powerful mages and a cruel, selfish queen who will do anything to control all seven kingdoms—including killing anyone who stands in her way. Thrust headlong into this new, magical world, Aurora’s arrival sets plans in motion that threaten to destroy all she holds dear.
With the help of a young fae, a magical pegasus, and a handsome mage, Aurora journeys across Avalonia to learn the truth about her past and unleash the power within herself. Kingdoms collide as a complicated web of political intrigue and ancient magic lead Aurora to unravel a shocking secret that will change her life forever.
OUR THOUGHTS: YES! YES! YES! We MUST have this book as soon as it's released!! A young girl thrown into a magical world holding magic and fantastical creatures, we're already totes in love!! Add in a pegasus which makes us giddy for childhood and all things Disney Hercules related *hehe* and a hot dude with awesome powers, what else can a reader heart ask for?! *wink wink* The book sounds like a cross between the Chronicles of Narnia and Disney which makes us automatically all grabby hands! Counting down the days till release!!
