3.5 stars...received book from Netgalley for honest review.

I got this book from Netgalley because my 9YO daughter was looking through the books with me and said she wanted to read Ennara. I was excited that she was showing an interest in something new, so I sent the request and received the book very quickly. My daughter was quick to grab the tablet and run into her room so she could read the book. Half way through the book she stopped reading it. She complained that the book was scaring her and

She's the heroine everyone's been waiting for. Ennara, the marked girl with magical powers, together with his best friend sidekick were in for an eventful and epic adventure when Wizard Tork took them. Bent on retrieving a magical object to save the world against Shadespawn, Ennara encountered characters that made her journey to the Sunken City an eye-opening one.

My kids flocked me while I read this book. I had to adjust my age while perusing this because this book is really intended for middle
Holly (Holly Hearts Books)
Ennara and The Fallen Druid immediately grabbed my attention in the first couple pages. It starts out very ominous, telling of a young girl named Ennara wondering the woods outside her farmhouse at night looking for her cow Misty when she is attacked by a shadowy creature. Yes! You have my attention!!

The book continued on with the same kind of flow and suspense. Maneuvering around all kinds of magical elements and venturing off into different locations throughout the book featuring unique charac

Well, I have a lot to say about this book.

For starters, I like how the story unfolded, the mystery and the shadowspawns...

But after their ship sank, everything went downhill as well.

1. Why did the cat join them, when they are not even close yet? It was never mentioned in the novel that they interacted at all, and then suddenly, they need to include the cat in their dinghy and their adventures?

2. I think it was a tad convenient that the cat can communicate to porpoises and ask for it to

Don't get me wrong because of my rating, I think Ennara and the Fallen Druid is a nice enough book for younger readers (middle grade). But for me, I didn't particularly liked it all that much.

I liked the world, the shadespawn and the three kids getting thrown together on an adventure but that's where my liking of it stopped. There were just a lot of things that didn't make sense to me. I'm not going to go into detail about it much because I don't want to give too much away.

The writing was okay.

Middle Grade Fantasy Adventure Strikes the Perfect Tone
This reviews both Ennara and the Fallen Druid (Ennara, #1) and Ennara and the Book of Shadows (Ennara, #2)
Middle grade fiction stands apart from its younger and older (Young Adult) cousins in ways that go beyond the simple division by ages. Kids this age are just beginning to spread their wings, assert their independence and individuality, and test their limits. Friends help them define themselves and try out new behaviors and identities, a

Ennara’s story is a wonderful story by Angela Myron and listen that is narrated by Crystal Marcano. I find that this is a great long trip listen for the whole family. At 5 hours and 13 mins. This is great for those that love paranormal stories filled with wizards, witches and we cannot forget the dragon. The wait of each action scene is “Can Ennara do it?” “Can she get them out of this?” leaves the reader asking this throughout the book.

So wait! Getting ahead of myself! Angela Myron has all the

This is C&P from my co-blog (, where you can check out the full review. But this is the meat. Please enjoy, and keep in mind that I really think this is for a younger audience. (:

First: I wasn't given an age range (which is something I will be asking from now on), but given the content matter I did think it would be for an older audience. There is dark magic involved, and even the BBC show Merlin, which has dark magic in it, waited until its audience was older before intr
This was such a surprise because it's quite dark. We start by seeing Ennara on her way to bring her cow into the shed but when she gets there it's dark and she can't find the cow. She starts searching and ends up tripping on something slippy, when she falls she sees the bell, but no cow! Suddenly she sees movement and next thing she knows theres something on top of her. It's a thing of nightmares and something Ennara never thought were real. The Shadowspawn are things of legend. One bite or scra ...more

A fantastic fantasy story for that difficult 8 - 12 years old age group that can also be enjoyed by older readers, too. This story involves a young girl, Ennara, who knows she is someone special as she was born with a caul and has the mark denoting her potential magical ability tattooed on her wrist.

Ennara has to hide her identity as a child with magical abilities, because she would most likely be kidnapped, enslaved, and forced to use her magic to benefit evil masters. She wears gloves to cover the tattoos on her hands that mark her as a magic user, but her mentor, Tork, trains her in the use of white magic.
When a shadowy demon begins attacking her village, Ennara is sent on a quest with Tork to recover the only weapon that could defeat the shadows, the Sword of Gisilfrid. But the sword i

A few years ago, I read a book called "The Warded Man", and thought it was one of the most mystical and original books I had ever read.

Angela Myron has managed to bring an equally magical adventure to paper for the pre-teen reader.

One thing that I really like about young adult fiction is the way it grabs the reader quickly and pulls them right into the story. Young adult fiction gets right down to business, and for readers like me who require engagement from page one... it works.

Who wouldn’t enjoy a little mystery, magic, and adventure? I know I did in this book. It is a children’s/young adult though. But anyone could read it and want to continue on reading the series. If you are looking for a quick and easy to read this would work.

This is an absolutely magic book and one that was even better than I originally anticipated! Ennara is an extremely special girl, born as a caul she always knew she was different. But just how special being a caul is has not yet been revealed to her, until now...

A story which will appeal to children aged around 8+ I would suggest, but it would definiely be enjoyed by readers who are older

Imaginative! And captivating writing! I really felt Ennara’s fear as her mom tried to comfort her about leaving home for a little while. But then we become braver with her on her adventurous journey.

A Conventional Tale, But With Some Clever Twists and Nice Touches

For openers this book feels like it is going to be very predictable and undistinguished. A magical young girl with a mark on her hand that identifies her as special. A same age male sidekick who's funny and impulsive. They're taken away from their tiny village by a wizard in order to recover a magical object, hidden in a faraway place, because it is needed to defeat an invasion of evil shadowspawn. On a bad day, say when your car w

'Ennara and the fallen druid' is a book written by Angela Myron and it's the first book of the Ennara series. I was lucky enough to get a digital copy of this book thanks to Patchwork Press and Netgalley, and now I would like to write an honest review to thank them.
I guess the targeted audience is children from 8/9 to 13/14 years old. That, of course, doesn't mean it can't be read by older readers, although I do believe younger readers might find it difficult.
Now, let's get on with the story:

First of all, I really love the cover for this book! I really like how it looks sketched but still very magical, and I like how Ennara is front and center but her two friends have her back. And there's just so much going on that relates to the book, and I definitely appreciate it all more now that I've read it.

Most of this book is a lot of fun - especially

The 1-line Review:

A fun dungeon adventure for the 8-12 range.

The longer review:

Ennara and the Fallen Druid is the first in a series that holds a lot of potential. The characters and storyline are enjoyable and the story is well written. For an 8-12 year old this book will be a fun adventure. Battles with dungeon monsters and fun magic items found along a D&D like quest fuel this adventure. The end game being to save their land

Ennara and the Fallen Druid is a fast paced MG (8-12yo) fantasy adventure. Myron has a carefully crafted, well-constructed story here with everything children this age bracket will probably want – action, adventure, wizards, dark magicians, magical creatures and dashes of humour. There is a great balance between description and action so that the world and story are easy to visualise while maintaining pace. This would be an excell

This review was originally posted on Read Me Away.

Ah, middle grade fantasy, I adore reading you. The stories aren't too long to become info dumps, nor do they tend to drag. The characters are young, and this book captures that change in attitude from a child whose world is pretty small, to an older character who learns how to take care of things. That's the main thing I liked about this book: the character development.

This is a fantasy novel with wizards, monsters, evil and a bunch of children that save there people. It is full of drama, danger, action, magic, adventure and brave friends that save each other on a quest. It is a clean story.

The characters are loveable. You want the main ones succeed and you want to cheer for them along the way.
