As the series turns darker, Lynette tests the limits of her protagonist Alexandra Jennings, as an impending menace divides the races of Medora.The Sydney Arts Guide describes the series as elements of the Harry Potter saga, the Narnia Chronicles and the X-Men franchise. When it comes to sheer inventiveness, the book would satisfy any fantasy devotee. ' Graevale, like its predecessors in the series, is an unforgettable read.At the heart of these books is Alexandra Jennings, a realistic and self-actualised character who inspires and resonates with fans.

Alex reminds us that we are allowed to fail, so long as we learn from our past and continue to move forward with grace and conviction.
