I received this book for free from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


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.

In ” an Oyster Shell – This was a fantastical read that sucked me in from beginning to end, I’m anxiously awaiting for the next book.

The Pearls – The concept of the book was interesting and was executed well. I was hooked on this book the minute the fantasy world came into play. It was so interesting.

I like that it had a bit of a Harry Potter feel with magic and education. The characters were strong and worked well together. There was an unexpected surprise at the end that leaves me super anxious for the next book!

The Sand – This book is good as is.

4 Pearls!
