“I swear by the stars that you and the others slain tonight will be the first of many. Of that, you have my word.”

With Aven Dalmarta now hiding in the shadows of Meya, Alex is desperate to save Jordan and keep the Rebel Prince from taking more lives.

Training day and night to master the enhanced immortal blood in her veins, Alex undertakes a dangerous Meyarin warrior trial that separates her from those she loves and leaves her stranded in a place where nothing is as it should be.

As friends become enemies and enemies become friends, Alex must decide who to trust as powerful new allies—and adversaries—push her towards a future of either light… or darkness.

One way or another, the world will change…

Before I’ll start I will just say that I loved Akarnae and Raelia so much, that I really was looking forward to reading Draekora 😀

Draekora is the third book in the Medoran Chronicles. I will keep this review short as it’s so hard to review this book without spoilers (I’ve tried, lol).

The book started with tons of action, sweeping you immediately to a new place with new characters, full of danger. From the start, Alex and her gang are trying to find out if Jordan’s brother was alive or not. Alex goes to Meya to train and learn more about her abilities. There, she has one of the best adventures in this book 😀 And I think the author only gets better and better with each book she writes.

There are a lot of new characters that we meet in this book, but you are drawn to them from the start. I love that we got to see more of Medora and even though this book has a more serious tone to it, we still experience the fun and excitement that we loved so much in the previous books. Draekora is by far the best book in this series (so far) ❤

You really get involved with the characters and the author did a wonderful job with them, you can’t help yourself but fall in love with them. I did miss the old gang a lot but it didn’t make the story any less enjoyable to read. Alex has to go through so much that with each dangerous event you keep asking yourself how will she ever get out of this situation. I won’t say much of the other characters as it will definitely spoil things for you, but I will say that the Draekon character is such a great addition to the story, I loved it.
The villain also is well thought of and you really love to hate him, the author did an amazing work with him, omg.

The ending of this book… Omg. I can’t really say much here but let me say that I couldn’t stop crying, and I so happy that I have the next book to read immediately. At the end of this book, things get even more crazy and dangerous and we know that war is coming and as I said I am happy I already have Gravale (book #4) because I must know what will happen next with Alex and her gang.

This book has everything you want in a great book. You got dangerous adventures, friendships, time travel, dragons, magic, and love. How can you not love this book ❤

P.S: The cover is gorgeous and I would truly love if I could visit Draekora.

Book 4 here I come ❤

“Life is full of crossroads, Alex. Full of choices.”

Returning for a second year at Akarnae Academy with her gifted friends, Alexandra Jennings steps back through a doorway into Medora, the fantasy world that is full of impossibilities. Despite the magical wonder of Medora, Alex’s life remains threatened by Aven Dalmarta, the banished prince from the Lost City of Meya who is out for her blood. To protect the Medorans from Aven’s quest to reclaim his birthright, Alex and her friends seek out the Meyarin city and what remains of its ancient race. Not sure who—or perhaps what—she is anymore, all Alex knows is that if she fails to keep Aven from reaching Meya, the lives of countless Medorans will be in danger. Can she protect them, or will all be lost?

Oh, my… Trying to sort out my feelings and thoughts a bit before starting this review.

It’s been awhile since I’ve read the first book Akarnae but everything stayed fresh in my mind and this book starts just a few months after the first book ends.

The author Lynette Noni did a great job with grabbing my attention from start to finish. The world is filled with magic, incredible places and interesting characters that you will want to know more and more about.

As I said, this is the second book in this series and here, Alex and her friends are back at Akarnae Academy for another year of dangerous adventures.

The friendships Lynette has created here is a rare unicorn to read in books, it is so well written and well thought of.

These friendships between all the characters make the story of what it is. Even the not so main characters were well written and made Medora more real and the adventures in this book more exciting.

The storyline resumes shortly after Akarnae, (no spoilers here), but after the first book, Alex is back more determined to protect the institute. When Alex travels to an ancient kingdom, we meet new characters that now play a key role in the story and are part of Alex’s group, which makes the story even more exciting to read.

I will add that this story has a unique feel to it just like Harry Potter and for me, that means that the story and the characters will surely make me laugh, angry and cry, as I go through their adventure with them and I will remember them forever.

Even the villain Aven, is written well, and you immediately love to hate him, Lynette truly did a wonderful work with him, like all the other characters in this series.

The ending really punch you in the feels 😀

The last few chapters were brutal and heartbreaking, and I can tell you now that as soon as I finished with this book I grabbed the next one as fast as I could. I had to know what will happen, I just had to.

Overall, it is a fun and fast read (I couldn’t let go of the book from the start), and there was much tension, making it a perfect blend of a wonderful story. The Medoran Chronicles is definitely a series worth reading, you will not regret it ❤
