A fantastic adventure story that will transport you to a dazzling world of myth and magic.

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.

My Review: 

Firstly I would like to thank NetGalley for kindly approving of my request to read and review, absolutely LOVED this book.
I have fallen in love with Ms Oomerbhoy’s work and I’m patiently waiting for more to come.
“The Last Of The Firedrakes” is one of then books where when you’ve reached the end and it leaves you dangling like a carrot in the wind, you automatically get the urge to track down the sequel and delve into the next one!
Aurora hasn’t had an easy life, her biological parents were killed when she was young and she was adopted, unfortunately this wasn’t a happy ending either, with these ultimately meeting their demise, thus leaving the young girl to live with “other” family
But what happens when she finds out that the world she lives in isn’t quite what she thought it was, thus being transported to a WHOLE new world through the tapestry where magic rules
What will happen when Aurora finds out that she  is the rightful Heir of the Illiador throne?
“I had to stop running. I had to turn and face my life head on.” Aurora Firedrake
The world that Oomerbhoy has created has this amazing sense of fantasy. A world that leaves readers wanting to visit. It was the perfection of light and dark.
I loved the way the magical system worked, the mythical creatures we got to meet too. Aurora behaved in ways that were believable, both for the age of a 16 year old as well as the situations she was put in
There is a great Quest they all go on and I really want to see where this is going to lead. Unfortunately some of Aurora’s actions will cause more hurdles for her to cross in her quest in becoming Queen.
