    Inhaltsangabe

    A Great Winged One will soon arise and cast his fearsome shadow upon the land. And just as Night slays Day, and Day slays Night, so also shall another Black Witch rise to meet him, her powers vast beyond imagining.

    So foretells the greatest prophecy of the Gardnerian mages. Carnissa Gardner, the last prophesied Black Witch, drove back the enemy forces and saved her people during the Realm War. Now a new evil is on the horizon, and her granddaughter, Elloren, is believed to be Carnissa's heir - but while she is the absolute image of her famous grandmother, Elloren is utterly devoid of power in a society that prizes magical ability above nearly all else.

    When she is granted the opportunity to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an apothecary, Elloren is eager to join her brothers at the prestigious Verpax University and finally embrace a destiny of her own, free from the shadow of her grandmother's legacy. But she soon realizes that the university, which admits all manner of people - including the fire-wielding, winged Icarals, the sworn enemies of all Gardnerians - is an even more treacherous place for the granddaughter of the Black Witch.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "This ambitious story is impressively narrated by the talented Julia Whelan, who creatively details its world of intricate magical practices and diverse inhabitants.... Whelan ably creates and sustains a wide cast of characters with intriguing and faithfully distinguished voices. Most importantly, she cultivates listeners' connection with flawed but ultimately good-hearted Elloren, whose first-person story portrays her fumbling attempts at understanding a wider world."

    Highly recommended!

    If you are a lover of YA fantasy novels with strong, multidimensional characters, this series is a must-read. Especially in the first half, the book keeps a slow pace, which is necessary for the complex world and different characters to be established. It pays off - the story arch and development of the different characters is amazing and highly believable, and the second book “iron flower’ is even better. Even situated in a fantasy-world, this series brings you to reflect on very real social problems and power imbalances in multiethnical societies. Once this story has sucked you in, it is very hard to stop reading/listening!

    Great Story!

    I love these Chronicles, the story is so engulfing and interesting, always enfolding more and captivating the reader / listener even more! The characters are all so very different and mysterious, it’s great to learn about them all and see them grow and change. I’m really enjoying this story so far.
