Other than enjoying the enchanting story of Princess Areenna and Prince Mikaal who set out on a treacherous journey to save their magical world, I was also greatly amazed by the concept of the storyline. David Wind has set this world into the very far future of the USA, at a time when worldwide terrorism has used technology to pollute the world with radiation, ending civilization as we know it.
In his fantastical world, the author introduces an array of mutated animals that all appear intriguing as well as surprisingly endearing, so much that they made me wish they existed in the real world; treygones and kraals in particular. There are beautiful descriptions of forestland, rivers and medieval-type castles and keeps and in this world, the women are revered and have magical powers. When the dark forces who have destroyed the world as we know it today return to try and rule even this new, devastated world, the gifted Areenna is summoned to travel with Prince Mikaal to The Island as to come face to face with the bare truth about the destruction that was brought upon it. On their way there, they get to know each other better as friends, they gather new gifts from other realms and of course, they get to master their newly acquired abilities that will help them in their final battle against Evil.Read more ›
Born to Magic: Tales of Nevaeh Vol. 1 is a story of a futuristic world of fantasy. A world that used to be our own until war erupted and ravaged the land. Now this world is facing another threat. One which could wipe out all life in Nevaeh and send it back to an age of darkness. Nevaeh is now a land where the inhabitants dwell in a world of ritual and magic, where ten dominions struggle for supremacy and a dark, formidable power has emerged.
Areenna, the only daughter of the King of Freemorn, was pushed by her mother to develop her gift sooner than most girls normally would. After her mother's death, Areenna is secretly trained by Enaid the High King's wife, because the Queen has foreseen the future. A future of darkness for all who live in Nevaeh.
While Areenna, her father the King of Freemorn, and the other Dominions which make up Nevaeh hold counsel, discoveries are made and foretellings come to light. Areenna must visit the Island. A journey she must make much earlier than most, but a journey which all women of magic must endure. She cannot go alone and succeed, but the future of all depends on her success.
Accompanied by Mikkal, the High King's son Areenna sets off on her journey.
I loved Areenna. Her character is one, which while well developed still learns and grows throughout the story.
A tantalizing tale which held me captured until the very end. I thoroughly enjoyed David's story and look forward to the Tales of Nevaeh Vol 2.
Synopsis (from the author): Long ago, the violence and radiation of terrorist wars killed America. Descendants of the survivors now dwell in a world of ritual and magic, where ten dominions struggle for supremacy and a dark, formidable power has emerged.
Areenna, the only daughter of the King of Freemorn, is barely eighteen, yet her psychic ability is strong. She is called to The Island and learns that the fate of her world is in her hands. She must undertake a perilous journey to save Nevaeh from malicious destruction. But she will not travel alone.
Mikaal, the son of the High King of Nevaeh, has just as much at stake as Areenna. The quest takes them through haunted wastelands filled with mutants while a vile and evil force will do everything in its power to stop them—for it wants Nevaeh as its own.
What I liked: I thought the premise of the book was great. The idea of a space traveler returning to earth to find a society without technology, and where the women wield magic was so cool to me. Add to it the intrigue of the evil influences in the world trying to conquer the world, the hint of romance that flows throughout the book, and the action sequences, and you have a great read. I also liked the way words had evolved in the story. For instance, instead of rabbits, there were rabts. Interesting way to make familiar things new!
What I didn’t like: I thought I little more background on the evil force would have been nice, but it certainly didn’t detract from the story. Other than that, no complaints from me!
Overall impression: Born to Magic held my attention from the beginning. A nice blend of action, fantasy, intrigue, and a hint of romance made this a great read. I would recommend it to anyone who likes to read fantasy!
My rating: 5 Stars
