I met the author while at B&N purchasing the new S.King novel last winter. I did not think that The Chronicles of Anaedor was for me, not sure why, but I guess I thought it would have too many adolescent characters and/or too many talking animals. How wrong I was! This story started as a mystery. I found myself looking forward to what was around the next corner with the characters that I got to know, and those who I knew were coming. They were fun, curious, busy, well descripted, and the "others" I could picture in my mind. The story moved at a good clip and I am looking forward to the next book. Nicely done. Nice fantasy woven into the real world.
The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Prophecies is a YA Fantasy book, but it was different than any I've read before. The author has her own, unique voice that spices up the characters and dialogue making this book a fun, exciting read. The main character, Lavida Mors, is a fifteen-year-old girl who is sent away to a family estate, Portal Manor, by her dad. She hopes that maybe she can start over in this new place, but she has a secret that has already screwed things up for her once. During the story, she discovers a hidden, underground world full of strange beings. One of them kidnaps her and her friends (twins, Eddie and Ellie, who is one of my favorite characters) and takes them to be put on trial. They manage to escape from the prisons where they are being held captive and in the ensuing chase, Lavida is forced to reveal her secret, at the risk of losing everything she has gained in this new life. There's a lot of adventure in this book and though it starts a little slow, it really picks up and ends with a bang. Can't wait to see what else Ms. Schram has in store for the world of Anaedor (according to her website, which is actually kind of cool - watch her 2 book trailers and you'll see what I mean - there are 3 more books to the series).
A standing ovation for Kristina Schram's new book The Chronicles of Anaedor: The Prophecies. Experience fantasy at its best as you journey along with the beguiling heroine (Lavida) and her comical sidekick Ms. Penny (a raccoon). Mystery and danger await her at spooky Portal Manor, where there are more than ghosts that go bump in the night! The vivid descriptions and creative characters all but leap off the page, as you lose yourself in the enchanting realm of Anaedor. Lavida's fears make her all that more real and endearing, yet she is able to overcome and triumph! Three thumbs up and that's one more than I have. -Donna Marie Waters Author of The Gnome Chronicles: Bracken and the Crystal Cave & The Dragons of Middle Earth
