“Faith is the greatest magic of all.”
Farah Oomerbhoy, The Rise of the Dawnstar

“Everything happens for a reason, and nothing is an accident. It is all part of a much larger divine plan,” Duke Silverthorne said gravely, but in a surprisingly kind voice. “When difficulties come, we must see them as what they are—opportunities and a new path to discover your potential. How will you ever know the magnitude of courage you are capable of if you have never experienced the hopelessness of fear?”
Farah Oomerbhoy, The Last of the Firedrakes

“I had to stop running. I had to turn and face my life head on. It wasn’t enough being like everybody else; I had to be the best, and I was going to show everyone what I was truly made of. I was done with being a terrified princess, constantly waiting to be saved. I was going to be a queen, and, like Vivienne said, I had better start behaving like one. - (Aurora Firedrake)”
Farah Oomerbhoy, The Last of the Firedrakes

“It struck me as pretty ridiculous to be called Mr. Darcy and to stand on your own looking snooty at a party. It's like being called Heathcliff and insisting on spending the entire evening in the garden, shouting "Cathy" and banging your head against a tree.”
Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones's Diary

Thank you so much for reading :) I'm so happy you liked the books.

Judy Hello, Farah~

I so enjoyed your book, The Rise of the Dawnstar. Although I had not read book 1, I had no problem following the narrative. It takes a very good author to cover what a reader may have missed in previous books without weighing down the current story. You did this very well. However, I plan to read book 1 before the summer is over. I am telling everyone on Facebook and Instagram to get these books now. I am also ordering the set for my 16 year old granddaughter. Yes, I am a 67 year old grandma that loves your writing. Looking forward to hearing about book 3.

Thank you for friending me.

Arpita Das, the hundred-eyed human Hi!!!!! *waves madly and offers a cookie* Thank you, so so much for accepting my request. *Sends a virtual hug* I am so so glad and also very sorry that I couldn't write to you before. But my exams are over and I'll do now is read and roam around the alleys of GR. And I am totally dying to read your book, and now that I have time. I'll do that, pretty soon. I already have a gut feeling, it's going to be awesome. And I am desperately waiting to have bookish chats with you!
