**I received a copy of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review**
As you all know, I’ve been gushing about the Illaria series for awhile…I did a review for the first book, a cover reveal for the second book with a giveaway, and now I’m lucky enough to write a review for the second book and reveal the amazing cover for the third book.
And a giveaway is coming from Dyan for ALL THREE BOOKS! YAY!! You’ll be able to own all of Illaria up until this point! (
There might be other books coming, so I can’t say the series, lol 😉) <—-I didn’t say it…
Anyway, let’s start where we always start, eh? The cover….the gorgeous cover.
Now, if you haven’t read book one. Heir of Illaria, don’t fret! I won’t post spoilers bc technically, since you haven’t read it, you’ll have no idea what I’m talking about!! 😂🤣 Just kidding.
Or am I?
Ok, so let’s just get into the meat of the books so whoever is reading this will understand what the heck I’m talking about!
This is mainly a “bridge” book: a book that bridges the first and third books together. Etta and her brother Max, originally on the same side, have parted. Max feels he is the rightful heir and Etta knows she is. Unfortunately, the divide has forced her brother to embrace the dark side, or technically the dark king, as he thinks he can somehow control the king and get his throne back.
Etta is on the other side of the divide, left with the band of people who know she is the rightful heir. While training and preparing for Max to return to challenge her, her strongest Ally and love, Ashton, is lured into a trap…a trap that is full of dark magic. A trap that separates his soul from his body, leaving him to drift in the Astral Plane until he disappears…
But Etta won’t sit back and let that happen. She is willing to do whatever it takes to save Ashton…
But will she risk her kingdom in the process?
Let’s cut to the chase…let’s just show the cover of book three….because I CANNOT WAIT ANYMORE!
Drumroll please….THE COVER FOR BOOK THREE, BATTLE OF ILLARIA!! ::cheers::
I know I’m passionate about this series, but you have to understand: this series is AWESOME.
Now I’m not going to do my basic rundown because:
- I rarely recommend a second book in a series for the classroom. Unless it’s a standalone that can be read separately, they just don’t work. And:
- You know how I’m going to rate this book. It’s obvious. Dyan couldn’t write a less than ★★★★★ book if she tried. (Well, maybe if she tried)
So to make it simple, I give Oracle of Illaria….
Now, here’s the good news…
