    Page-turning, World-Hopping Adventure of Dragon Proportions

    Aeslin thought she was a normal girl...
    It all begins with Aeslin's parents reading a story from a very special book; Aeslin's parents tell her about Avalon, the magical dragon Blue Moon, the brave Dragon Knight and the evil Warlord Khrom. During one of these story times her mother suddenly stops reading - saying what happens next is too scary. Aeslin doesn't realize that from then on, things will drastically change, beginning with her father's death resulting in her mother's denial of anything magical.
    At 16 years old, Aeslin's life has had no magic in it for eight years, but things begin to change; the catalyst is Cobb's Oddities & Spices - a small store that wasn't appeared out of nowhere - and a certain book. Aeslin soon learns that her mother has been keeping secrets from her after she gets sucked into the very book that she just bought. It turns out that Khrom has taken over the kingdom and Avalon is in dire need of a heroine, but is Aeslin prepared to fill that role? Have the stories from her childhood prepared her for the coming battle? The key to her future lies in the book by Will Redding - a book that allows her to travel between worlds, but will Aeslin fight for Avalon, or will she try and avoid her destiny like her mother did?

    The illustrations of Emma Vieceli are well-done and capture the reader's attention. Though the story is a classic retelling of girl-learns-she-is-a-long-lost-princess-and-must-save-the-kindgom, it is still very well done. As an avid reader of manga and graphic novels, I can't wait until the next one!
