“Firestar: Krisalys Chronicles of Feyree: Scroll 3” by Claudia Newcorn begins with the Feyree vs. Daemianis battle for the realm of Lampion. The fire army proved to be stronger than the Feyree and so their dark times began as the Daemiani became their oppressors under Firelord Tizon. However, the Feyree’s loss was only the beginning of this saga as a group of Feyree still loyal to their kind, and their leader, doesn’t give up, and keep fighting to free Lampion from Tizon and the Daemiani.
This story has all of the elements of a great Teen fantasy saga. The determination and courage of the Feyree to not submit to their oppressors, even though outnumbered and under-armed, keeps the reader rooting for honorable values such as love and loyalty. I loved how the story started; it felt like I was jumping into a movie battle scene. I also found the prologue very useful since I had not read the previous two books of the series. Reading the prologue allowed me to understand what was going on, and understand who the players in the battle were. Having said that, because this book is the end of a trilogy, I wished I had read the other two books, and recommend the readers to do so.
I love fantasy stories and take every opportunity to escape day-to-day life by losing myself in them. I really enjoyed reading this book. Newcorn’s writing style took me immediately to her magical world from the narrator’s voice, to the character’s names and personalities. I found “Firestar: Krisalys Chronicles of Feyree: Scroll 3” by Claudie Newcorn to be a fun adventure story which took me away from my reality for a wonderful read, and I highly recommend it to all fantasy lovers.
