Review: Liornabella


Liornabella (The Viridian Chronicles, #1)

Turn the page, and allow this tale of mystery, deception, and coming of age to draw you in. Elle, a magnetic seventeen year old, has been accepted to one of the most prestigious schools in the
Viridian Isles. A superior athlete who excels academically, Elle has an independence of spirit that continuously puts her in grave danger.
Hidden in the chambers of the school are the remains of ancient Liornabella Castle, and the dark history that permeates its walls, also haunts its hallways. It lurks in the shadows, waiting for the day when Elle crosses the threshold. As she does so, a fateful and
deadly challenge begins, and both Elle and the reader are swept along together.
As Elle’s eighteenth birthday approaches, her skills and gifts will
come to be tested in ways she could never imagine, by creatures darker than her nightmares. To survive, she strives to learn the true meaning of the centuries-old texts that are drawn into Elle’s
presence by forces more powerful than she knows. Together with her enigmatic friends, she uncovers a terrible, haunting, timeless truth.
Maybe the life as we know it has left , but life in another form, life without warmth and light, has continued. I must know. The time for truth is now.

Review: From the first page, I knew this book was special!  Elle is such a fun character! Strong, smart, and brave. She makes fun heroine, and her and her friends are all tested to their limits as a danger far stronger and older than anything they can imagine comes after them. This book is fast-paced, perhaps a little too fast at times. I wish we got a little more background and interactions with between the characters before the dangers start. That said, I enjoyed it, and found this to be a quick read. I enjoyed the suspense and mystery this book creates, giving the reader an edge-of-your-seat thrill throughout the story.
