*** Special Feature - February 2016 ***

About the Book:
16-year-old Aurora Darlington is an orphan. Mistreated by her adopted family and bullied at school, she dreams of running away and being free. But when she is kidnapped and dragged through a portal into a magical world, suddenly her old life doesn’t seem so bad.

Avalonia is a dangerous land ruled by powerful mages and a cruel, selfish queen who will do anything to control all seven kingdoms—including killing anyone who stands in her way. Thrust headlong into this new, magical world, Aurora’s arrival sets plans in motion that threaten to destroy all she holds dear.

With the help of a young fae, a magical pegasus, and a handsome mage, Aurora journeys across Avalonia to learn the truth about her past and unleash the power within herself. Kingdoms collide as a complicated web of political intrigue and ancient magic lead Aurora to unravel a shocking secret that will change her life forever.

Short interview with Aurora Firedrake

Author, Farah Oomerbhoy: Hello Aurora, it’s so wonderful to sit down with you again for a chat. 
Aurora: It’s lovely to see you again too Farah.
Farah: This time we are going to do something different. Let’s have a pop quiz. I know many of our readers would love to know a little more about you. So here goes…

Farah: Chocolate or vanilla?  
Aurora: Vanilla

Farah: Early bird or night owl? 
Aurora: Night owl for sure. :)

Farah: Sweet or salty?
Aurora: Sweet

Farah: Town or village?
Aurora: Villages are so quiet and peaceful. And there is a sense of belonging and camaraderie that you don’t always come across in big towns or cities. The fae village of Pixie Bush in Illiador is my favorite place.

Farah: Reading books or riding horses?
Aurora: Reading, definitely. I do like riding but not for long journeys. It can get very tiring.

Farah: Truth or dare?
Aurora: Dare :)

Farah: What is your favorite season? Why?
Aurora: I think I would have to say spring. I love seeing the first buds blossom, heralding the way for the rest of nature to come alive again after winter blankets the land beneath layers of ice and snow. 

Farah: Are you a good dancer?
Aurora: Not really. But I do love to dance. :)

Farah: What is your #1 dream?
Aurora: To see my parents again. 

About the Author:

For Farah Oomerbhoy, writing is a passion and reading her solace. She is a firm believer in the fantastic and magical, and often dreams of living in Narnia, Neverland, or the Enchanted Forest.
When she was pregnant with her first child ten years ago, a story popped into her head she could not ignore. “I was at my grandmother’s house, and as I looked at the image of a beautiful forest with a castle in the distance on a tapestry hanging on the wall, I imagined myself being whisked away into another world,” she said. It was at that moment the world of Avalonia, with its powerful mages and fae and the evil Queen Morgana, was born. Farah Oomerbhoy’s debut novel, The Last of the Firedrakes, was released in the summer of 2015.

Farah lives with her husband and three children in their family home in Mumbai, India. She has a Master’s degree in English Literature from the University of Mumbai. Her first novel is The Last of the Firedrakes, Book 1 of the Avalonia Chronicles.
