4 stars–The Last of the Firedrakes by Farah Oomerbhoy was a pleasant surprise. I thought the blurb sounded interesting but was afraid that I was going to be disappointed with the actual story. Luckily that was not the case. Aurora hasn’t had an easy life, her parents were killed when she was young and she was adopted. Then her adoptive parents die and she goes to live with her aunt and uncle who don’t seem to like her all that much. She’s only 16 and has already dealt with more than most adults.
She’s pulled out of school one day by her uncle and taken on a trip. It turns out that he’s selling her to someone named Oblek. It’s at this point that Aurora finds out that the world isn’t quite what she thought it was, she’s transported to a new world through the tapestry where magic rules.
I enjoyed the story very much. I really liked Kalen, her friend, and Rafe her love interest. I’m hoping there are more books to come because I really want to see where the story goes.
