Ennara has always been told she'd have legendary magic when she grew up, but she felt like the most normal girl in the world...

Until one night when she is attacked by a shadowy demon on her farmstead. Suddenly, Ennara is thrust into a world of magic, alchemy, and monsters, and she is charged with a quest to find an ancient sword that can end the shadowy curse--just as it ended the Fallen Druid centuries ago.

To succeed, Ennara must confront pirates, servants of the Fallen Druid, and those who would use her magic for their own ends. In the end, she must learn to rely on the strengths of her friends and herself, and the deepest truths of life in the world of medieval Lan.

Ennara and the Fallen Druid is the first book in the middle-grade fantasy series Ennara. It won a silver medal at the 2013 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards for best pre-teen ebook.

This was such a surprise because it's quite dark. We start by seeing Ennara on her way to bring her cow into the shed but when she gets there it's dark and she can't find the cow. She starts searching and ends up tripping on something slippy, when she falls she sees the bell, but no cow! Suddenly she sees movement and next thing she knows theres something on top of her. It's a thing of nightmares and something Ennara never thought were real. The Shadowspawn are things of legend. One bite or scratch they give you will turn you into one of them. Luckily for Ennara, her father comes and saves her but from that moment on, Ennaras life is changed forever.  Lets talk about Ennara first, she is such a plucky and brave young girl. She is the Harry Potter of her world. She has always known she had magical powers but hadn't really used them. Now though, she has to learn quickly because in order to save her town, she has to travel to a sunken city and find a way to fight the Shadowspawn. What I loved about Ennara is that she is most definitely a shade of gray. She has bad magic and good magic in her and has to fight the draw of the bad. Yet she is good to the core. She is brave and no matter what comes her way, she will fight to save everyone else. She is most definitely a worthy heroine.  Kithe is Ennaras best friend and he inadvertently ends up accompanying Ennara and her uncle on their quest. He isn't magical but he is just as brave as Ennara. I really liked his character and am glad that he ended up with the "thing" at the end.  Overall Ennara and the Fallen Druid is an action packed read. It's quite dark but it's a book that will leave you breathless because there is so much action, adventure, magic and darkness in it. It's not just a magical story, it's a story of friendship, of overcoming darkness and of standing true to who you are. I think that the younger crowd would find it a bit frightening but for anyone over 11 or 12 it should be fine. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have already dived into book 2.

Wow! What a fun read! Ennara and the Fallen Druid had such a unique concept with fun loving characters and great action that had me entertained throughout the story. The book is for young readers, but I can definitely see adults enjoying it as well. I definitely recommend this book and this author. I will be reading more about Ennara and her adventures. I received this free copy in exchange for an honest review.

**I was provided with a copy of this by the publisher for review** Ennara and the Fallen Druid is a fast paced MG (8-12yo) fantasy adventure.  Myron has a carefully crafted, well-constructed story here with everything children this age bracket will probably want – action, adventure, wizards, dark magicians, magical creatures and dashes of humour.  There is a great balance between description and action so that the world and story are easy to visualise while maintaining pace.  This would be an excellent introduction to the fantasy genre for younger readers.  Ennara is one of few children to be born with a caul over her face.  This caul is said to occur on babies who become particularly gifted magic wielders.  Though Ennara has commenced her studies in magical lore with her aunt, she has not practiced using magic and has no idea just what her skills are – let alone whether they will be special in anyway. The wizard Tork requests that Ennara accompany him on his journey to find a way to stop the Shadespawn - evil creatures who were once human.  (Increasing numbers of Shadespawn roam the land infecting those they scratch or bite.) She gains young companions along the way- Kithe and Gevin. Kithe is her long-time friend who plays the slightly goofy sidekick.  Gevin is a new acquaintance who is quiet and serious. Ennara is initially uncertain in her own abilities and frightened by the dangers that face them.  In fact each of the children has their own vulnerabilities, which is something I enjoyed about their character construction. There are some cool magical creatures good and evil along the way - keep your eye out for Smoos! There are great messages about self-belief, teamwork, trust and honesty in this story, but above all it is a rollicking adventure. The book starts dramatically with Ennara running for her life from a Shadespawn and the pace doesn’t let up until the end – there are no dull bits in this story whatsoever.   Four Stars!

(Based off of an audiobook plus book )Ennara’s story is a wonderful story by Angela Myron and listen that is narrated by Crystal Marcano. I find that this is a great long trip listen for the whole family. At 5 hours and 13 mins. This is great for those that love paranormal stories filled with wizards, witches and we cannot forget the dragon. The wait of each action scene is “Can Ennara do it?” “Can she get them out of this?” leaves the reader asking this throughout the book. So wait! Getting ahead of myself! Angela Myron has all the important ingredients to the plot of this story. Young characters that young readers/listeners can relate to. Starting with 11 year old Ennara and her friend Kithe. Ennara bears a tattoo of a dragon on her wrist. Which she is always told not to reveal it. Under her Aunt’s guidance of teaching Ennara the trade of being a witch. That someday she will save the world. Something that Ennara found so farfetched that she can do such a task. The time period is of the Druids. Traveling by horse, boat and by foot. Under the guidance of a Wizard and friend named Tork. The two of them set out on a journey to retrieve the sword called “Sword of Gisilfrid” to destroy the curse that is creating demons called Shadowspawn. In this quest it is predictable as with most stories the friend always ends up following and ends up in the adventure. Kithe is no different. However, what I do like about this character as not seen with many sidekicks. Kithe even at the young age the author has him at has a clearer and much stronger head on his shoulders. So that when Ennara seems to drift towards the bad he helps her stay on a steady course. Ennara has two sides to her magic, good and bad that she is not under full control of yet. Both sides of the magic however, helps in saving them all for the most part throughout the story. However, Tork reminds her to be mindful of not using the bad magic. The travel to the city of Dordonne with Tork, Ennara and Kithe to get supplies as they leave to the Sunken City to retrieve the Sword. An apothecary where they are picking up some of the supplies they  will need for the trip. A shop keeper ask Ennara to retrieve a bracelet that she tells her is of no importance. Kithe is an important part to the scene is all I will tell you. Along the way Tork encounters trouble with a Shadespawn and goes into a deep sleep. Braving pirates and the rough seas as the try to get to the Sunken City. It is now up to Ennara and Kithe to not only save Tork but everyone. Adding to the twosome is 2 more important supporting characters. A young boy a bit older than them named Gavin and a special marine cat named Smoos. Yes, this book is predictable. But, it is geared towards 8-12 year olds. However, anyone older will also enjoy the listen. The narrator Crystal Marcano did an amazing and believable job with each of the characters and their voices. The only voice that seemed really young was Tork. Being an older man he seemed to be their age. I did enjoy the accents since it was more of a Scottish placed story. A bonus to the listening of this first book is that the author included a bit of the second book. I would have missed it if I did not shut off my kindle I was using to listen to the book. So keep going as you get to the end. Needs a bit of editing in my opinion to say, “Now for a  preview of the upcoming book! “Ennara and the Book of Shadows” It gives the listener something to look forward to. Then give the credits at the end As others that have read the book. I have to agree that there is a bit of a Harry Potter feel to the story with the main character being a girl. Something I enjoy seeing is a strong female character and I have been seeing a lot of that lately. The cover of the book is simply delightful. Fits the characters perfectly. I look forward to the release of the 2nd audio book.

Was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This book is especially unique about magical terms, and the plot is also very interesting. At the beginning, when Ennara and her friends first started the adventure, it was exciting. However, the story falls into cliché at the end and it's such a waste. It has great potential.
