Summary of the Book:
Meliora lives on the Earth-like planet of Ima where days are idyllic and worries never last. Tension enters the north continent as her father, the King of a prominent sovereignty passes away. Her mother is left with the crown, but shows no interest in ruling. In desperation to find a cure for the hereditary disease that took her husband, Queen Vesper travels off-planet to study sorcery. Magic had long been banned on Ima, leaving desperate questions in her wake. To make matters worse, soon after her departure, Queen Vesper ceases communication. The lone successor to the throne is teenage Meliora, who feels shy of the task. With her best friend, Jedrek by her side, she musters the strength to lead. Meliora’s reign is short lived as the previous Queen returns after years of silence. Though once close, the woman now wielding magic isn’t the mother she remembers.
Includes pen and ink illustrations of scenes by Ava Reiss.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I loved this book and the world building was epic. The character Meliora becomes the ruler after her mother the queen leaves the planet to study magic that has been outlawed in Ima. This leaves a lot of people with questions. She is gone for years and return with powers. Meliora has her friend by her side to face her the Queen who is nothing like the mother she knew. It is a well done story and worth the read. I don’t want to give away too much for you much take the adventure yourself.
My Rating of the Book: 4 1/2 Stars
