This past week on Lynette Noni’s blog (located here), there have been digital giveaways of her debut book Akarne. This is the first book in The Medoran Chronicles series. I was fortunate enough to win one of these copies! The giveaways are over now, but if you still have your eye on this book, I would suggest buying it now! Right now on Amazon and until the end of the month, Akarnae is only $0.99!! This is a great price for a book that is number one on Amazon’s “Hot New Releases in Coming of Age.”
I personally have seen a lot of great stuff on this book, but I don’t know too much about it. I just read the summary and it sounds pretty awesome.
” With just one step, sixteen-year-old Alexandra Jennings’s world changes–literally. Dreading her first day at a new school, Alex is stunned when she walks through a doorway and finds herself stranded in Medora, a fantasy world full of impossibilities. Desperate to return home, she learns that only a man named Professor Marselle can help her… but he’s missing.While waiting for him to reappear, Alex attends Akarnae Academy, Medora’s boarding school for teenagers with extraordinary gifts. She soon starts to enjoy her bizarre new world and the friends who embrace her as one of their own, but strange things are happening at Akarnae, and Alex can’t ignore her fear that something unexpected… somethingsinister… is looming.An unwilling pawn in a deadly game, Alex’s shoulders bear the crushing weight of an entire race’s survival. Only she can save the Medorans, but what if doing so prevents her from ever returning home? Will Alex risk her entire world–and maybe even her life–to save Medora?”
I know right, sounds pretty great! I’m going to try and read this as soon as I get the link and then I will have a review posted as well. If you aren’t sure if you’ll like this book, here is a convincing photo:
