Ennara and the Fallen Druid by Angela Myron (Ennara #1)
Eleven year-old Ennara Gaern has a serious grudge against the dragon on her right hand. Born with a mask that foretold her magical powers, she was immediately inked with the fiendish, fire-breathing tattoo that forces her to study boring texts, cover her hand continuously, and worst of all, keeps her from visiting the beautiful capital city, Dordonne. But her quiet life changes when one night she is attacked by a shadowy demon. Tork, an old friend and wizard, is enlisted to help. But when he arrives, he informs Ennara’s parents that she is her world’s only hope of finding the legendary Sword of Gisilfrid, which is needed to destroy the curse that is creating the demons. Ennara and the wizard begin a perilous journey to the Sunken City, pitting them against dangerous oceans and pirates intent on claiming Ennara’s magic as their own. With only her friends at her side, including the intelligent, aquatic cat Smoos, Ennara must defeat monsters guarding the sword and servants of the Fallen Druid. When her world is covered in darkness, will she know how to dispel the curse?

My Review:Ennara and the Fallen Druid by Angela Myron (Ennara #1)
This is a fantasy novel with wizards, monsters, evil and a bunch of children that save there people. It is full of drama, danger, action, magic, adventure and brave friends that save each other on a quest. It is a clean story.
The characters are loveable. You want the main ones succeed and you want to cheer for them along the way.
Ennara Gaern is a eleven year old girl who was born with a gift. She has been trained in the principle of magic but never done it. It is said that one day she will be powerful. She is a farm girl.
Kithe the only other child her age in their village. His father runs the local inn. He sees her ride off with a stranger and rides to her rescue.
Tork a wizard he is asked to help save the village from the shadow demons and he thinks the only way is to travel to the sunken city to find a special sword. He says the only chance he has if Ennara leaves her family and goes with him.
The main transportation is horses. It is a time when magic is in the land in a few people. Most are taken and trained away from their home. Ennara's parents were able to bribe the midwife to keep her at home. She has never left her village before.
The story is aimed at children but adults can enjoy it too. At least I did.
I would read and look forward to the next book in the series Ennara and the Book of Shadows (Ennara, #2).
I was given this ebook to read and in return agreed to give a honest review of the book by Net Galley.
