Publisher's Summary

When Day and Night combine and fight against one Enemy, then Dark and Light shall meet mid-strike and set the Captives free.

In the wake of loss and devastation, Alex must cast aside her grief to seek aid from those who banished the Meyarins long ago. But the proud Tia Aurans care little for the woes of mortals and demand that Alex - and her friends - undergo the Gates of Testing to prove their world is worth saving.

With an ancient prophecy looming, Alex must confront the secrets of her past if she is to survive long enough to see the future. For if she returns to Medora without the Tia Aurans by her side, all hope will be lost.

In this explosive conclusion to The Medoran Chronicles, the fate of Medora hangs in the balance as Alex readies herself to face Aven one final time.

Who will survive, and who will fall?

If, however, darkness wins, there is no strategy to keep from all that will be lost, and so will always be.

best book

wow what a way to end the series! I do hope there is more in this stroy. Would love a what has happened 10 years later without giving the ending away to this book. I truly love Lynette's work and hope the rest of her career is as good as this series was. A must read for all ages!

Bad friends!

Her loyal friends that have been with her for years through many dangerous adventures and trust her with their lives turn on her at the drop of a hat. The first time was unbelievable but for them to do it again 2 days later is just idiotic.
I’m stopping at chapter 21 before they get over it just to probably turn on her again.

A stunning conclusion to a great YA fantasy series

It has been a breathtaking adventure over the past four volumes as Alex and her friends delved into the wondrous world of Medora and its history, filled with superior technology, dragons and mystics. Their journey has led them to this concluding chapter where the fate of Medora and the mortal world hang in the balance under an enemy too great to conquer.

Lynette Noni has proven her worth as an imaginative writer and effective story teller, summoning up visions of incredible worlds, extraordinary cultures, and edge-of-your-seat adventures that have made every volume a page-turner.

Vardaesia achieves the seemingly impossible by outdoing everything before it, offering a stunning finale that is both horrific and wonderful. Not all the characters we’ve grown to love, like or loathe survive, with Alex and Co first having to face the prideful Tia Auran race to elicit their help in the coming fight against Aven.

The stakes are higher than ever for the heroes, but the epic battles, mind games and romance, intermingled with prophesy and plotting, are all riding on a story of family, friendship and learning to have faith in oneself.

Noni’s multi-layered narrative is filled with well-rounded characters, plot twists, and a clever intertwining of events and characters from the story’s past, tying together numerous threads and unsolved mysteries.

Carly Robins has been with the series from the beginning as the audiobook narrator, and she returns for this final showdown, conjuring up the majesty and emotion of the characters and action. She’s an articulate reader who provides distinguishable characterisations and excellent pacing. By now, she knows the characters well and understands the subtext of their words.

The Medoran Chronicles has been an exceptional young adult fantasy series and it ends with a climax that has been worth the wait. Watch out for more titles from Lynette Noni, including her other novel, Whisper. She’s a name you’ll be proud to say you’ve known from the beginning of her career.
