Prompted by a cryptic message from her deceased master, Niome, a young wizardess, embarks on a journey to discover many truths. Leaving her country, Teloria, behind, and accompanied by her brother, his best friend, her brother's master and his best friend, she discovers the prophecies that were written in the stars and dictated by the dragons. Being the guardian of the remaining safe magical book of spells, the Compliment Book, Niome and her companions quickly realise that they must go to the dark lands and retrieve the stolen Book of Enchantment from the evil lord who wishes to rule over all the lands. It is there where their Stardust Destinies are revealed.

4 out of 5 (very good)

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

One word.....Epic!

I'm reminded of medieval times right from the start. Courage, valiance, swordsmen, magic and so much more.

Niome is about to embark on an awe-inspiring mission accompanied by four friends and family... not just any mission but one that had long been foretold. The personal journeys are no less important, not only on an individual level but as a group.

This is an epic journey that leads to new friendships, strong alliances and surprises. The only thing I've struggled with is when the characters speak in their native tongue.....I'll be honest, I didn't even attempt to pronounce any of it, ha ha!

That aside, this is a brilliant read that is ideal for teens onwards to enjoy.
