A GIANT WHITE EAGLE, A CHARMED BOOK, AND A GIRL WITH SPECIAL POWERS…
In a world where magic is feared, Princess Martina must be careful and conceal her magical talents—especially when her spiteful brother acts like a complete stranger. She finds a true friend in the peasant boy Enzo, and her secret seems safe. But when tragedy strikes the royal palace, Martina’s careful world is torn to pieces. If only brother and sister can work together, the collapsing kingdom might be saved from war and famine, vicious ralthors, and a tyrant king. But Prince Drago has secrets of his own, and a heart of wickedness that no amount of good magic can brighten.
Dark days cloud Brightalia, and only one last hope remains before total devastation. Can Martina and her friend defeat the evil that lurks throughout their land? Or are the days of their beloved kingdom over forever? Only one thing is certain—time is running out…
Adventurous and fun are what come to mind when I reflect upon this book for middle grade readers. There’s a lot to like about this magical story’s distinctive characters and action filled plot that keeps the story moving and the reader’s attention. Overall a great read! I would recommend this book to anyone ages 8 up.
