Series: The Arie Chronicles #2
Author: Dani Hart
Release Date: October 31, 2014
Being forced into a fantastical world was never in Arie’s life plan, but after spending time with her previously thought dead father, she’s falling in love with the world of enchantment. She’s determined to create a life for her newfound little sister, Amary, that is full of hope, tranquility, and love like her mother had done for her up until she died.
Losing her best friends, River and Starling, during the transition into her new life wasn’t easy on Arie, but a necessary sacrifice to ensure the safety of Amary and the natural balance of light and darkness. She is the chosen one who, through a choice of love, could cause the further destruction of balance, but is also the only one who could save them all.
Her journey is riddled with increased power, new discoveries, and a gut-wrenching decision that will further prove why she was chosen to lead the newly evolved. Arie’s mother always told her to follow her heart, and with the dedication to keep her mother’s spirit alive, she would let love lead and trust that the rest would follow.
Would love be enough to save the ones she protected? To save the balance of the worlds she relied on for support? Or would she lose it all because the price was too high?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS SERIES!! And I loved this second installment even more than the first. So this takes place right after Arie has ascended and she is now living in the majestic parallel world with Amary and her Father Tivon. Her mom is gone, her love Ashe is gone and both her friends River and Star have gone back to live normal lives in the mundane world as we all know it. Reeling from her loss and loneliness Arie is trying to understand and accept her destiny at the same time trying to be there for Amary who she cares for deeply. Arie goes through many trials in the story she has to face her past, accept her losses, come to terms with her new responsibilities and power and find a way to save both her homes. With mysteries about her destiny slowly being revealed Arie will finally learn the truth, a truth that will put her and Amary in danger from those who seek their power and those who fear it.
There is a whole lot that takes place in this book, we meet some new amazing characters like Heath and Milan and we see some of the familiar faces like River and Star. We learn more about Arie’s past life and the land she now calls home. The creativity in this book is overflowing. The storyline is intricate but flows immensely well and the scenery described is enchantingly beautiful. All the emotions that Arie experiences are so genuine that your heart will bleed for her. Her fear, anger, sadness, love and courage are so prevalent throughout the story that every decision she makes feels like your own. You take the journey with her, you are in awe as she is, you love like she does and you fight right alongside her. This is a very unique coming of age story with magic and fantasy elements. It’s about making sacrifices, accepting responsibility and understanding power. I love that this story centers on a female heroine, multiple female heroines to be exact and each one is unique in their bravery, strength and character. Dani Hart has a fabulous imagination and she puts it down on paper exquisitely. This series is a fabulous read that will leave you enthralled and eager for more.
