Kurzbeschreibung

Abby is haunted by dreams of an ivory castle, blood-thirsty monsters, and a striking stranger. Working as the babysitter for a family of mythology lovers in wealthy Newcastle Beach, she struggles to define herself among the elite class while trying to make sense of her strange visions. Upon meeting David, the doppelgänger of the mysterious young man in her dreams, Abby's life changes forever.

Encountering the queen of Cai Terenmare, Abby learns of a magical realm on the edge of anarchy. She’s told of an evil lord hell-bent on usurping the throne, the assassination of the king, and the kidnapping of the infant prince. Now, as the kingdom struggles to survive, Abby must convince her mysterious crush, David, that he is the lost heir.

While braving attacks from the dark lord's sadistic minions, Abby must help David discover his true identity. Only then may he return to claim his throne before time runs out. Should Abby and David fail, a long-imprisoned evil will escape, destroying Cai Terenmare and all of humanity.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fast-paced-Original YA Fantasy! 13. Oktober 2013
Von Dii - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Dreaming of castles and handsome boys shouldn’t become nightmares, but for Abby, an ordinary girl, so she thinks, her nightmares are far too real. In a parallel world, evil has a plan to destroy a kingdom and it may spread to the human realm if no one can stop it and time is running out. A baby, heir to the throne of his realm is stolen and brought through a magical portal, left on the doorstep of a wealthy and childless couple, his memory of his past life and his future destiny will be erased forever, if someone does not intervene in time. His mother, the queen follows through the portal, but is powerless to save him. Enter Abby, whose nightmares will lead her to this young man and perhaps fulfill her own true destiny. Will she rescue him in time? Will she be able to make him remember who he really is? The clock is ticking and evil looms.

Sign of the Throne by Melissa Eskue Ousley is an engaging and enchanting young adult tale that took me into another world, as the battle between good and evil is waged in two realms. Her descriptions are intense, intricate and each world feels right, from the reality of the world we know to the mystical qualities of Cai Terenmare, as these worlds are woven together with words. From quirky to cute, to totally human to misguided and evil, Ms. Ousley paints her characters in full living color! And bless her; there is even a glossary to help understand names, places and everything! The author’s imagination is a treasure chest of wonder, and I’m happy to have shared in its bounty!

Looking for fantasy, young romance, and a chance to help save the world? I highly recommend Sign of the Throne and am looking forward to the next books in this trilogy! I received a review copy as part of the Sign of the Throne by Melissa Eskue Ousley Book End Tour & Giveaway stopping at Tome Tender October 15.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Exciting new fantasy series! 14. November 2013
Von Delsheree D. Gladden - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Every teen hits a time in their life where they struggle to define who they are and what their place is in the world. Abby's struggle is a little more challenging than most. Not only is she perched between the worlds of every normal life and the elite society of Newcastle Beach, she is haunted by strange dreams that threaten danger if she doesn't understand their meaning in time.

The story of Sign of the throne envelopes two worlds, that of the world we all live in and the land of Cai Terenmare, a place of magic, destiny, and impending danger. The book opens in the land of Cai Terenmare and immediately drops readers into a well developed fantasy world. Ousley took great care creating a detailed system of magic, a deep history that effects every character, and an intriguing plot that takes the story into the human world.

I was almost sad to leave Cai Teremare when the story continued into the human world, but that only lasted until I met Abby, Jon, and David. From the first introduction, I felt connected to the characters. Abby is someone who's easy to relate to because of her likable personality and struggle to find her place and purpose. Jon was a fun addition to the cast. Not only did he provide comic relief at just the right time, he had a deeper side to his character that will endear him to readers. Even though he harbors romantic feelings for Abby, being her best friend comes first...well, most of the time. He's not perfect, so you can't expect him not to get a little jealous when the gorgeous David makes his entrance.

David isn't someone Abby knows, at least not in real life, but part of the haunting dreams she begins experiencing features David center stage. The dream seem to indicate that David plays a role in her life she doesn't yet understand. When they finally meet in real life, it isn't love at first sight. Not even close. Not only is Abby a little freaked out by the dreams, David has a girlfriend, kind of, and dreams of David are hardly the only unusual events that crop up. Abby is forced to face a whole host of terrifying magical creatures and situations that would put anyone on edge.

The storyline surrounding David's past and true identity, and how Abby fits into the twists and turns that have led them to this moment of decision is captivating. I kept turning pages, eager to know whether Abby would understand what she need to do in time and do it without losing those she cares about. The romance that develops between Abby and David is a draw as well. The romance was clean, but still had enough intensity to keep me eager for their next encounter.

The only area I had any trouble with were some sections where the explanations and backstories ran a little long and pulled me out of the main story too much. This happened mainly when the queen tells Abby about how the Sign of the Throne was recovered. Overall, though, the pacing and story arch were very well done. The characters was wonderfully written as well. I am excited to read the next installment of the Solas Beir Trilogy and continue Abby and David's story.

4.0 von 5 Sternen magic galore... 11. November 2013
Von Phoebe Matthews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I love tv show Once Upon.. So of course I enjoyed this book. The gorgeous cover sets the mood, with the story opening in a magical kingdom of royalty and wickedness and a baby in terrible danger. It moves to our world of present day reality and a heroine plagued by strange dreams. The characterizations and descriptions are as lush as the cover and the pace is good.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The beautifully described fantasy landscape and mythical creatures are what make this book shine. 30. März 2014

Abby Brown appears to be a very ordinary girl. Well, other than her secret dreams of monstrous creatures and the likeness of a boy named David, who she keeps running into while awake. As Abby begins to piece together why she's having visions and seeing ominous, stalking shadows, she will bear the responsibility of how to tell David why he feels an inexplicable connection to her--and she must find a way to convince David of a magical, alternate universe and his role in saving it from certain destruction.

Before I share my thoughts about the story line, I'd just like to comment on the cover. It is mysterious and gorgeous. The artwork is what drew me to Sign of the Throne in the first place. This is a sweet YA fantasy with a fair amount of intriguing mythology. I loved the treacherous fantasy world in this book, and the visually stunning descriptions of Cai Terenmare were by far my favorite part of the plot.

Mixing the fantastical portals and magical grandeur of Cai Terenmare with present day reality, Sign of the Throne is a fun story with paranormal elements that make for the beginning of a promising series. While there is YA romance in this book, it is notably a pretty clean story that younger teens can enjoy reading too. I'm interested in what's in store for Abby and David next! And I'm very hopeful that there'll be so much more of Cai Terenmare in the sequel, because its beautifully described landscape and use of mythical creatures are definitely what makes the beginning of The Solas Beir trilogy shine.
