I fell in love with Freya from the very beginning. I held my breath, laughed, cheered, and cried as I followed her and her family through their adventures. No spoilers of course… but this is one of my favourites. You just absolutely fall in love with the characters and stick with them to the very end. I could not WAIT for Tyrelia (Book 2) to come out once I had finished Medar.
I definitely recommend for EVERYONE! But in particular, tweens. Woohoo Sharon!!!
5 star review on Goodreads
Published by Sharon Manssen
A fantasy fan since being read 'The Hobbit' by her father at the fireside at the age of six, she has been an avid bookworm her entire life. When the idea for her current trilogy popped into her head, there was never any doubt that it would be in the fantasy genre. Unfortunately, real life gets in the way, and writing has to fit around her full-time job at a global engineering consultancy and family life (husband and two young adult children). It took ten years to pen her first book, Medar, which was a finalist for the Tom Fitzgibbon Award in 2015 and was published in 2017. Her second book, Tyrelia was nominated in the Young Adult Fiction category in the 2019 Sir Julius Vogel Awards. Her third book, Golden City, is due out in 2021.
