Have you read this stunning action packed fantasy series of books about a young girl called Emily Knight? Neci may have other plans.
The Knights have finally been reunited in the third book and ready to defeat Neci once and for all.
The third installment in what is projected to be a series quartet, by the very talented author Abiola Bello.
Abiola Bello has created an engaging and courageous heroine and her highly accomplished writing ensures that the reader is swept along in young adult fantasy.
Emily Knight is a typical thirteen year old, except she along with her family posses magical ability. She has lost her mother to illness, and been left in the care of her godparents.
Lashing out in rebellious and defiant way, she longs to find her place in the world. Seeking attention even though it comes across as negative.
Emily struggles under the weight of pressure to follow in her bother and fathers footsteps She is the daughter of the most famous warrior, Thomas Knight, who had defeated the renegade warrior called Neci in a past battle.
In series of events Emily is sent to Osaki Training School. There she will meet development friendships along with having to deal some bullies. When her friend is kidnapped she will lead a special team on a rescue mission.
There is magic and adventures quest in this absorbing, and a highly compulsive read here that was quite a page turner. The supporting characters are definitely worth noting with interesting. There is a light heart romantic attraction that is done wonderfully, and is spot on given Emily’s age. She has anxieties and is well depicted as a young adolescent.
Emily is strong relatable heroine that is a person of color you will come to love and follow her along in this spectacular adventurous book series.
I highly recommend this book and the complete book series, and I am looking forward to reading the next book
