The epic follow up to 2015’s Akarnae, Lynette Noni has delivered another fantastic Medoran adventure… This is the kind of series that one wants to find out what happens, but at the same time, finishing it results in a book hangover, where as a reader, wanting to know what happens next and the waiting is both frustrating and rewarding when the time comes. – The Book Muse

Noni does a good job of bringing her world to life and the central teen relationships have a believability. There are a couple of nice plot surprises, a teenage romance or two, some solid action set pieces and once again, Noni’s comic touch adds to the overall enjoyment.

Two books in and you’d be hard pressed to find a better or more engaging YA fantasy series out there.  – Information Overlord

Last year I was blown away by Akarnae. Lynette Noni’s debut novel quickly became a favorite of mine and skyrocked me into an incredible fantasy world. Raelia continues on with our heroine Alex’s journey and is without a doubt as good as the first book. Often a sequel doesn’t live up to it’s predecessor, but in Raelia’s case it only manages to expand on an already incredibly vivid world and introduce readers to new layers of this dynamite series! – The Rest Is Still Unwritten

Raelia is spectacularly paced and detailed. Magically and beautifully depicted, Lynette Noni writes some fabulous fight scenes and battle situations, managing to weave humor and wit into the story alongside danger and the perfect hint of romance. Strong character relationships and clearly thought out circumstances make the story one you don’t want to leave and plenty of unexpected twists keep you on your toes. – The Rest Is Still Unwritten

There is nothing about this novel I can fault and as Raelia races towards a thrilling ending, Lynette Noni continuously manages to draw me in, leaving me dreading the moment when the story ends. Rich, powerful and so, SO good, Raelia is a sensational sequel and continuation of a brilliant series–I cannot wait for more and I highly recommend anyone who hasn’t picked up this series yet does so, or risk missing out on an amazing adventure! – The Rest Is Still Unwritten

Perfect for fans of Harry Potter, The Mortal Instruments and the Chronicles of Narnia, Raelia is a delightful adventure made of magic and brilliance! – The Rest Is Still Unwritten
