I've wanted to read Auralia's Colors for, like, years, but never got the book to read it. It was very confusing starting the series off by reading the fourth book, but pieces clicked together as I read further (I would recommend starting at book one!). I actually didn't know this book was a sequel to Auralia's Colors until I got it in the mail...surprise!
It was a great read for fantasy fans and the story was awesome and very descriptive. I loved all the names of the characters, who were, by the way, delightful and very real. The whole book definitely had a other-world feel to it.
Like I said, it was confusing and I didn't get into it as much because I hadn't read the three previous books, but I liked it. A great read for ages 12 and up!
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
