Ennara and the Fallen Druid is a 2013 Moonbeam Children’s Book Award winner.
Eleven year-old Ennara Gaern has a serious grudge against the dragon on her right hand.
Born with a mask that foretold magical powers, she was immediately inked with the fiendish, fire-breathing tattoo that forces her to study boring texts, cover her hand continuously, and worst of all, keeps her from visiting the beautiful capital city, Dordonne. But her quiet life changes when one night she is attacked by a shadowy demon.
Tork, an old friend and wizard, is enlisted to help. But when he arrives, he informs Ennara’s parents that she is her world’s only hope of finding the legendary Sword of Gisilfrid, which is needed to destroy the curse that is creating the demons.
Ennara and the wizard begin a perilous journey to the Sunken City, pitting them against dangerous oceans and pirates intent on claiming Ennara’s magic as their own. With only her friends at her side, including the intelligent, aquatic cat Smoos, Ennara must defeat monsters guarding the sword and servants of the Fallen Druid. When her world is covered in darkness, will she know how to dispel the curse?
Who wouldn’t enjoy a little mystery, magic, and adventure? I know I did in this book. It is a children’s/young adult though. But anyone could read it and want to continue on reading the series. If you are looking for a quick and easy to read this would work.
Ennara is a young girl that is a caul child. One that had been born in years. Caul children are said to be very magical but she had never practiced magic before only been taught theory. Kithe is her best friend and will always be there for her. Even on this adventure, which she needed him on but he wasn’t suppose to be there with her. They set out with Tork, an old friend and wizard, to receive a sword that should save them. There are others that you met along the way and some that hopefully will be in the next book. We learn about a prophecy that has to do with Ennara. It was unknown before and kind of freaky.
I read this in a little under three hours and am ready for the next one. Lol I received both from netgalley so I could read together. I enjoyed it so much. Angela Myron created a wonderful magical world that pulls you in and keeps you wanting more of it. I love when I book had a map of the world it just helps you know where things are, well at least it does in my mind.
