Review of Magonia (Magonia #1) by Maria Dahvana Headley

Magonia (Magonia #1) by Maria Dahvana Headley


Review: This is one of the books I have gotten in my OwlCrate box, which I was surprised was so unbelievably amazing. Don’t get me wrong, the OwlCrate box is so cool and the books are just ok, but so far I have not read an all of 5 star one. That is till now…

This book literally took my breath away as I read the different colorful scenes, whether they were the heartbreaking ones or not. I was just mesmerized by this book about three pages in, I have not real clue why, just that I was. But the whole time I was reading about the different ships riding the clouds above us, I could not stop myself from looking up and hoping to see ships full of colorful bird people. Because that’s what this book was, just one giant adventure that you wanted to be apart of. Even as I read this I just kept thinking of the different ways they could make this book/ series in to a TV show or movie! Because really wouldn’t be cool to see these cool bird characters be made. Even as a test on the show Faceoff , to see how well the contesters can make the faces and bodies for these characters. Anyway other than these great ideas, I am very much looking forward to more about this series.

5 out of 5 stars.

Summary: Aza Ray is drowning in thin air.

Since she was a baby, Aza has suffered from a mysterious lung disease that makes it ever harder for her to breathe, to speak—to live.

So when Aza catches a glimpse of a ship in the sky, her family chalks it up to a cruel side effect of her medication. But Aza doesn’t think this is a hallucination. She can hear someone on the ship calling her name.

Only her best friend, Jason, listens. Jason, who’s always been there. Jason, for whom she might have more-than-friendly feelings. But before Aza can consider that thrilling idea, something goes terribly wrong. Aza is lost to our world—and found, by another. Magonia.

Above the clouds, in a land of trading ships, Aza is not the weak and dying thing she was. In Magonia, she can breathe for the first time. Better, she has immense power—and as she navigates her new life, she discovers that war is coming. Magonia and Earth are on the cusp of a reckoning. And in Aza’s hands lies the fate of the whole of humanity—including the boy who loves her. Where do her loyalties lie?
