Meet Kiera, a pretty, intelligent, and talented girl, brought up by her uncle, and abandoned by her parents. Life is as normal as she believes it to be, apart from the deep ache inside her, telling her she’s different. For years, Kiera had dreams where she ventures into a different reality. She’s not alone; a presence is always there, keeping her safe, yet she feels vulnerable, and hunted.

Zakk, Prince of Zantar, is under the Witch Queen’s spell as she tries to take over his world. He crosses paths with Kiera, and their fates are entwined.

As their journey unravels, she learns that she is not the only one affected by this prince. Who is on her side? Will she find out why she has been chosen? How can someone so young, defeat such evil? Will she find the strength to save the ones closest to her? Will this be Kiera’s only Quest?

Book Review by J.Q. Rose

If you are a reader of fantasy, then you are in for a great read when you choose Kiera's Quest Awakenings. I loved the really, really wicked Queen and the complete opposite of wickedness, Kiera, the main character. The story is told in a quaint English language which adds to the atmosphere in the tale. 

Kids will identify with Kiera in her contemporary world of school and friends. But her life becomes woven together with Zakk, Prince of Zatar, who is from another world. The story has suspense, mystery, and dark action which may be too intense for young readers. 

The imaginative storytelling kept me turning pages.  I raced to the end of the story to discover what would happen to Zakk, Kiera, and her friends. I was disappointed to discover the story does not wrap up all the loose ends, but rather, Kiera has to go on another quest to discover the answers. There are two more books in the series. If you don't mind reading a serial, I think you would enjoy this lively story.
