Welcome to my blog spot- grab a cup of coffee and a good book ;-)
5 Epic Stars for Nav'Aria
The minute I saw a unicorn on the cover of this book, I knew that I was going to love it. Call it a hunch!
I was a big lover of unicorns as a young girl and their majestic beauty and allure seemed to stay with me into adulthood.
Oh, Nav’Aria: The Marked Heir… What wonderful things can I tell you without giving too much away? This is the dilemma I faced while writing this book review.
First off! Go buy your copy before you read any further because this is one book you don’t want to miss out on! Ok? Good!
Now that you’re back:
Darion Smith seems to be your typical teenage boy growing up in Oregon who has to face normal teenage issues (bullying, girl crushes, not fitting in, etc.) but Darion is anything but “normal” and soon starts to see how different he really is. Born with an unusual birthmark that seems to be growing and continually having frighteningly real dreams, he is soon faced with an undeniable fate and is literally propelled into another world.
Enter Nav’Aria- a fantasy lover’s dream come true, where unicorns are bad-a$$ warriors that are both beautiful and deadly creatures, centaurs roam and the land is in war and turmoil at the hands of the evil, Narco, who has treasonously corrupted this beautiful and peaceful place with dark magic.
You’ll meet a slew of characters, a lineage of unicorns that will leave you speechless, and a magnificent king who is the very definition of regal. And you’ll be thrown into the non-stop action that is taking place as Darion finds his true identity and must join in the battle to save the kingdom.
This book had it all- mythical creatures, history, action, drama and some laughs too. KJ Backer weaves an amazingly eloquent tale with multiple POVs and back stories. Such character development and suspense that had me unable to stop reading. This was a true page turner!
With elements of Narnia and Legend as well as an originality that will utterly thrill you, this fantasy novel is a must read and I absolutely LOVED it! I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one.
