Kate Hegarty has amazing idea/storyline with a classic vibe to it, but it falls short in one huge area. Mieradome is about a young girl name Amavia who finds out she's a fairy and the story takes us through her journey of going from acting as a human girl to really understanding her heritage. The idea is marvelous, and reminds me of old time classic fantasy's stories. Also it's the first YA book I have read where the protagonist chooses the guy, that I as a reader really want her to choose. The ...more

At the start of the novel, it already intrigued me. What was this strange place called Mieradome and this raven who kept on talking about Amavia's death. The wonderful land of Mieradome was already introduced in the first few chapters. I had

Let me just say while reading this book one movie came popping into my mind. And that is a good thing because I love this movie. The movie is called Pan's Laybrinth. This novel is absolutley a great read.

While this book is not a easy read, the story is captivating. I enjoyed all the characters and the plot. The characters names I love because the are all so unique! So Amavia is taken out of the faery world and led to believe she is a human. Amavia begins having dreams and is led right back to Mi

DNF. 3 pages in I could understand a word of what was going on. Sorry to say, but if I have trouble figuring out right from the start what the story is and have no idea what is going on, I can't stay involved.

Maybe someone who has read this book and understood right from the beginning what was occurring, maybe I'll try and give it another go.

Reading Mieradome was like being a little kid and having a fairy tale read to you, although I guess I should say faery tale. :) The characters are always the biggest thing for me in a story and I did enjoy those I read about in this story. Sometimes I did feel a little out of place with some of them, as the story has an older feeling to it and the language that some characters use is more modern. I usually liked the modern language, as it's easier to relate to, but it's setting threw me off a bi ...more

Mieradome has a great premise with it magic, fairytale lore, and at times it reminded me of A Mid Summer Night's Dream as the story reads like volume of classic literature.

I really loved the story's idea- the main character is a girl, Amavia who's really a fairy living in the human world, but she doesn't know who she is until she journeys back to the place her mother took her from years ago. Upon returning to Mieradome, Amavia finds out more of her heritage and who she really is. There'

Brought to you by OBS reviewer Dawn

I was initally drawn in by the unique and clever names of the characters. The plot is quickly revealed and you are immersed in the world of Mieradome where royal families battle for control.

Amavia is a multilayered character who must choose to embrace her destiny as it is slowly revealed. As young as she is (15), she manages to handle things fairly well. I felt her fear and frustration as she grew and struggled with her new postion. At each turn, I was impress

Amavia, a young girl, has spent her whole life believing she's an ordinary human girl. But then she starts to have strange dreams and finds herself drawn to a different world, Mieradome, where magical creatures roam freely, and learns that she herself is a faery. Not everything is right in Mieradome, however - "the light" is missing, and it's up to Amavia and her friends to recover it. Things are never simple, and as Amavia meets dragons and other mythical beings, she finds that she must search ...more

I gave this book a 2.5 stars on my blog.

This is one of those books that I couldn't decide whether I loved it, or hated it. I think I fell safely in the middle though. There were times that I really enjoyed the story, and there were times where I couldn't stand it. The "bones" of the story itself were good, but the writing was very much underdeveloped. In certain areas, I noticed that we were told several times in a sentence that Amavia was in Mieradome. I found that that detracted from the story

Anastasica couldn’t kill her daughter, so she ran away from her world of fairy and brought her children up in the mortal world.

Now, a raven hovers outside Amavia’s bedroom window, black with red glowing eyes. She believes it to be in her dreams, so when some fairy folk approach her and her small group, she follows them to the grand door in the ancient tree, a doorway to the world of fairy. She believes once there, she will know what her dreams mean.

In actuality, the Grand Duke of the Fairy Kingd

This book started out a little slow for me. It was slightly confusing but I kept with it and despite the fact that it was not an easy or fast read, it was pretty good...especially if you like books about fairies!

Amavia has grown up thinking she is a normal human. Then she starts having dreams and ends up back in Mieradome (a Fairyland), dragging her two siblings with her. There Amavia must save Mieradome by recovering "The Light" and along the way she meets dragons and fairies and other strange

Mieradome is set in a facinating faery world. Seriously, this book made me want to be a faery much more than any other faery book I've ever read! The faery world of Mieradome is rich with detail and interesting creatures and places I want to go. Amavia is suddenly thrust into this world and realizes her mother was a faery who had dark history in Mieradome and pulled Amavia away from it.

The plot ideas were great, much like traditional, high fantasy with a good vs. evil theme. I also enjoyed the w

If you like Faeries , you might like this book. The description of the places and characters is what made me finish this book. I found it hard to read otherwise, some of the chapters could have been shorter and made easier to follow. The fighting and the fast paced scenes were done to quickly while others not as exciting just dragged. The cliffhanger at the end just made me think that the author want you to buy her next book just to see where it goes, even though I like fantasy this book did not ...more
