Born in 1981 to Australian and Maltese parents, Selina lives in Australia with her husband, her cute monster baby who’s far too clever, and an unnamed cat. During her life Selina has found ancient Roman treasure, survived cancer, had knights joust at her wedding, been mugged for doughnuts, made a living as a visual artist, and shared her imaginary worlds in paintings and now in her novels.
I really loved this book! Any book that has magic and dragons is definitely on my TBR!!
Plus, how many books do you get to read that has illustrations?? I love to build up whatever book I am reading in my head and make it out however I want (and people say you don’t have a good imagination if you read), but having illustrations definitely helps with the creative juices!
Memory is a girl who has no recollections of her past. “Memory” is actually her nickname because of this issue. There are a number of people who she meets along the way, but Lory is the second main character in the story. We follow Memory’s world as she begins to unravel it and her past. There are definitely some very enjoyable characters that Selina Fenech built into this magical journey.
This book kept me interested. I always love a good book focused on magic and this book didn’t disappoint. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good fairytale. Hats off to you Selina for a fantastic first book to your trilogy!! I can’t wait for the next one!!
