Love that we see more of the library and Kaiden in this installment! There is also so much more action and danger, Alex continues to grow and develop as a character and in strength, and as always I adore the friendships in this series.

This book will have you itching to read the fifth and final book in the series, which I know will be EPIC.

GUYS I STILL CAN'T DEAL WITH ALL THESE EMOTIONS.

Summary:

✓ More Kaiden
✓ More Niyx
✓ More epic action scenes
✓ Plenty of fighting
✓ So much sass
✓ Teachers doing un-teacherly things
✓ Cute animals

Honestly I have to laugh at that one time ageeeeess ago when I first read Akarnae and was all cynical, thinking it was a little too close to HP for my liking. Now here I am letting this series rip out my heart and stomp all over it FOR A SECOND TIME. It's a beautiful, masochistic relation

This book will never not be my favourite book in the series for SO MANY REASONS. I don’t know if I could ever put into words what this book into particular means to me, but just know that it is incredible and an emotional rollercoaster no matter how many times I read it.

Original Review:
So I just finished reading this for the fourth(?) time and I am feeling many emotions right now. This book is still my favourite in the series because of the character growth and development that we se

i have no words. so many things i’ve been waiting so long for finally happened in this book, yet it subjected me to insane amounts of tears and heartache. this stakes of this story are at their highest yet, and the previous development of the storyline finally reaching a crux is incredible to witness. you WANT to read this, trust me. just be prepared to suffer, and ensure there’s a box of tissues nearby.

Light or dark, only one can win. This world cannot survive in shades of grey

I didn't think this series could get any better but with each new book that Lynette seems to bring out for this series she always seems to top it from its previous book and this book did not disappoint me.

This book for me was a turning point for the series, it has a much darker tone to it and no one is safe with war raging on and things are nowhere near finished

If I could give this book more stars...I would. This book crushed me...tore me apart and had me sobbing.

I am heartbroken and can't even think straight right now.

I need the next book ..I really need it now to get me out of this sorrow.

SECOND READ 16/02/19 - 5 stars

I'm sure there has been one, but I'm genuinely struggling to think of a book that has made me cry twice. It could just be that my brain is tired, but it could also be that this is the first book that has ever made me bawl for a second time. And I feel the need to stress this, both reads had me properly crying. I am not a big cryer when it comes to reading/watching movies/tv shows etc. Real life yes, fictional no. I have now read 300 books since joining Goodreads

Another great book for this series. I didn’t enjoy this one quite as much as book 3, but it was still good. This one has Alex visiting neighboring lands to warn them Aven is coming and enlist their help in the upcoming war. While some of these visits present significant challenges for Alex, others dragged a little. Niyx was my favourite character by far. Soraya was a nice new addition. While it was good to get some of Kaiden’s backstory, he’s feeling a little too perfect. I’m struggling to see t ...more

Review posted on Tea in the Treetops blog in April 2018:

The fourth and penultimate book in Lynette Noni’s Medoran Chronicles, Graevale, has been highly anticipated since the dramatic end of book three.

Alex is back at Akarnae after returning to the present time, with the knowledge that Aven has taken over Meya and is bent on destroying the mortal races. Alex knows that Aven is coming, but she must first convince the different races of

Oh my goodness. .

I was trying to savour this read, as I knew that this will be the second last in the series, and that some major shit was going to go down and that my feels were gonna be affected. But seriously. I was so stupid to wait and prolong the inevitable. It didn’t make my feels hurt any less!

It is honestly remarkable to be on this journey with Noni and Alex. It’s remarkable to read and watch how Noni has developed as an author since

I have so many feelings right now that writing a proper review is going to be a struggle. So I'll try my best to summarise.

As a book, Graevale utterly destroyed me in the best way possible, with the plot, the character development and the heartfelt moments all creating a whirlwind of a ride. Reading it, I fell in love all over again with the magic of Medora and the thrill of Alex's adventures.
Not to mention that Lynette Noni always creates such beautiful and vivid worlds and I loved being able

3.5 Stars. (this review is unedited so it won't sound good and probably contradictory lol)

I would like to begin by saying this book was really addictive. I couldn't put it down from the minute I picked it up. I literally dreamt about it last night and I woke up excited to continue reading (considering I started it yesterday I am quite impressed). As always I absolutely loved Alex and her friends but most importantly I love Niyx. GOD BLESS HIM. He was definitely a highlight and definitely an enj

After binge reading the Raelia and Draekora in about a day and a half and then having to wait another month until I FINALLY got my hands on Graevale, I was expecting great things.

Lynette Noni totally delivered! The world of Medora is really explored in Graevale, and I loved being introduced to the different species.

Noni has made emotions really important within this book, seen through particularly Jordan dealing with the trauma from the last book, Alex coming to terms with her journey to the pas

Out of all the books I have read in this series, this was the one book that made my heart stop momentarily!!! (For fear of spoilers I won’t say why) but honestly, I found this instalment really takes the cake!!! In the first book, Alex was new to the whole new world and was still learning. In book 2, Alex understands her position and is dealing with it, book 3 taught us “history may help making future decisions” then this one.. BAM!! Alex is on a mission against all the odds..

Wow. I was told to prepare for this book and you guys weren't wrong. It's definitely a book of struggle and failures, as Alex does everything she can in preparation for Aven's army. While reading the book, you can definitely feel a sense of tension, of something big coming, which we'll no doubt experience in the final book of the series. I can't wait!

Original review February 2018:

ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley.


These books are so addicting. Once you start reading them you get sucked in and forget everything else.
When I started Graevale I had forgotten quite a bit what had happened in the predecessors but the memories fortunately all came rushing back and I could enjoy this book to the fullest.

As always I absolutely adore all the characters and their friendships.

I'm not really sure why I love this series so much but I do. It just seems like books that aren't really my thing. But it works and how.

The World building would certainly be one reason. It's fantastic and so vivid. I also love how we see the same places but they often change so much. I'm trying not to give anything away but you see these places before and after certain events and it just evokes such strong feelings. It's amazing writing it really is.

The characters are great as always and

I am utterly destroyed.

This was for sure a turning point for the Medoran Chronicles. The last battle. The last stance. The last chance. Just wow.

We got to see more of Alex + Kaiden, which was uwuwu beyond anything. And Niyx...sweet baby Niyx.

Impactful. Daunting. Shookening. By far one of the best Akarnae books.

Lynette Noni studied journalism and academic writing at university before completing a degree in human behavior. She lives on the Sunshine Coast in Australia and can be found baking cupcakes, singing along to animated movies, or daydreaming about being swept away to a fantasy world. Some days, she can even do all three at once — and still find the time to sneak in a nap afterwards.
