Publisher's Summary

She never felt like she belonged...until magic pulled her into a world beyond her wildest imagination. Perfect for fans of the Throne of Glass series and the Grisha Trilogy.

Sixteen-year-old Aurora wishes she were anyone else. Mistreated by her adopted family and bullied at school, she believes things can’t get any worse. But when she’s kidnapped and dragged through an ancient tapestry into the magical world of Avalonia, she soon discovers that some dreams can easily turn into nightmares.

Hunted by the evil tyrant Queen Morgana, who will stop at nothing to get rid of the last surviving heir to the powerful Firedrake dynasty, Aurora struggles to fit into her new life as a mage at the prestigious Academy of Evolon. Threatened by treachery at every turn and desperate to prove herself worthy, she uncovers a dark, complicated web of political intrigue that threatens the very existence of the seven kingdoms of Avalonia.

Aided by the powerful Duke of Silverthorne, a fae friend, and a handsome but mysterious outlaw called the Black Wolf, Aurora struggles to master her magic and get her rare powers under control before it’s too late.

If she fails, her new home and her family will be enslaved forever....

Love the story, not the narrator

Farah Oomerbhoy has given readers a wonderful tale about an ordinary girl who discovers that she’s a princess and the journey she must undertake to control her powers and reclaim her thrown. Unfortunately, I’m not a fan of Fiona Hardingham. I’ve listened to several books that she has narrated, and I’m just not a fan of her voice. And I cannot stand the way she pronounces Firedrake like Firejake. I cringed every time she said it.

Fantastic story

I loved this story so much that I continues to listen to it even though the narrator's voice was doing my head in. She's so bad at voices and sentence structure that I kept getting distracted, but alas, I had to listen to her for 6 hours because the plot hooked me in.

and now I have to get the next two.
