Hey everyone, I have a fantasy read to share with you!
Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headley
Aza has a mysterious lung disease. Every day is a struggle and every year she survives is a miracle.
One day when she spots a ship in the sky, everyone thinks that she is having hallucinations as a side effect caused by her medication.
However, Aza is not convinced as she also hears a voice call her name.
She tells her brainiac, best friend, Jason what has been happening to her. He tells her legends that may offer some kind of explanation.
After sometime passes, Jason notices that Aza is getting worse and that her time is coming to an end. So, he takes the opportunity to tell her that he has more than friendly feelings for her.
Their time is cut short when, shortly after his declaration of love, she is found passed out and he has to call for help.
On the way to the hospital there is a bad storm and the medics are doing everything to try to save her life.
Despite their efforts, she left Earth for Magonia.
Where she learns a whole new way of life.
Can she figure out how to navigate the new world and stay the Aza she has always known?
Is she destined to be someone new?
I REALLY enjoyed this book! The writing was beautiful! The story was unique! It did take me a little time to get used to the writing style and there were a few moments where the story became slow and lost my interest. It did redeem itself during the action scenes and I was satisfied with the ending for the most part.
Best Wishes Always,
