In Akarnae by Lynette Noni, Alexandra Jennings is transported to Medora and has her world turned upside down. She attends Akarnae Academy where it is nothing like she is used to. She learns to fight, ride horses, do archery, how to use her gift that she doesn't know of, and other things. She makes two fiercly loyal friends that help her on adventures around the school. The Academy is in danger and Alex is the only one that can save it. Alex's bravery and courage along with her friends' special gifts help her defend the Academy.
I really liked Arkanae by Lynette Noni. I liked the creativeness she put into creating the setting, characters, and food. It was very descriptive, but not to the point where it bored me with details. The characters were developed nicely. I enjoyed finding out more about Medora and its history. I did not like how she didn't explain Medora. It may have made more sense if more details were included.
The setting was so well described, I could imagine myself there. There were times that I thought I could see exactly what was happening extremely clearly. The characters felt like they could be real people, that is if they didn't have their special gifts. I could imagine this book becoming very famous. It is a great piece of literature and I hope it is widely read.
