Three Reasons to Embrace the Wonder of “The Medoran Chronicles”
A few weeks ago, I received a set of The Medoran Chronicles by Lynette Noni in the mail from Pantera Press. It has been a few years since I was completely drawn in by a Young Adult book series, but I was hooked after the first few pages. This series is currently composed of three books, Akarnae, Raelia, and Draekora, with the fourth one, Graevale, coming out in just two weeks on February 1. Why haven’t you heard of this series? The author, Lynette Noni, and Pantera Press are both based in Australia. The easiest way to get a copy of this series is to buy a Kindle book from Amazon.
The Lovable Characters
This series features many fascinating characters. Alex, the main character, enters a new world filled with interesting people. She enrolls in the mysterious Akarnae, a school for the gifted. There she meets Jordan, whose gift is transcendence, and Bear, whose gift is charming people. They bond very quickly and soon add a few more friends into the mix.
The World of Medora
The world that Alex enters is called Medora. When she arrives, she finds out that the only person who might be able to send her home is Professor Marselle, who is unreachable for several months. Alex is forced to stay at Akarnae and learn all about this fascinating world of Medora.
It is a little strange to wrap your head around at first, but the library actually ends up being an important character. We find out early in the series that the library is actually sentient and can not only talk but also allow people to access hidden levels of the library and much more. This is one of my favorite things about this series. I can imagine this library as the one in Hogwarts.
The Medoran Chronicles is one of the best book series that I have read in years. I was completely swept into the story and hated putting the books down. I’m already planning a second read-through and can’t wait until the next book in the series comes out. I am truly ready to “embrace the wonder,” and I hope that you are too.
