Surviving Serendipity Characters Ú 2 ↠ The most that June expected for her 21st birthday was night of fun with her friends and maybe some flowers and a CD from her fiance She certainly didn't expect to come home to what should have been a dark empty apartment to find her destiny waiting for her wearing bright purple pirate pants Kidnapped by aR and whisked off to a far corner of the galaxy June discoers that her life on Earth has been a two decade long lie and that her true home is the troubled kingdom of Prendawr on the planet Tallafrith As if that wasn't enough to chase her back under the covers June is informed that her dury as princess and sole surviving m. Reviewed by Candace Cunard for TeensReadToocomJune has faced her fair share of hardships in life including the death of her parents but when this story starts life is going pretty well Her best friends are taking her out to celebrate her twenty first birthday and although her hardworking fiancée is gone on business he's just a phone call away Everything seems perfect until she comes home from a night out with the girls to discover a man dressed in strange clothes standing in her living room a man who transports her to a world she can't remember a world he tells her was once her homeAccording to Halryan June is the lost princess and powerful sorcerer of the kingdom Prendawr on the planet Thallafrith Within a few short hours she learns that her parents were not really her parents and that her appearance itself has changed since she has returned homeJune also learns that she's the only one who can engage in a uest to save the kingdom and the rest of the world from destruction by the insidious Eid Gomen strange and menacing inhuman creatures with powerful control over magic and the ability to suck a world's life force out of it if they are left unchecked The only problem is that nobody asked June if she wanted the job of saving a world she's never really knownAfter much explaining and convincing June decides to go along with Halryan and his four companions blue skinned men from a race known as the Valforte but that doesn't mean she has to be happy about it and she's not the sort to keep uiet about something that's bothering her Her no nonsense attitude was sometimes frustrating sometimes endearing but always refreshing here is a woman who takes things as she sees them who has both the stubbornness to stand her ground and the grace to admit it when she might have been wrongFor me the personal turmoil caused by the events she must go through was the core of the story; the typical fantasy uest plot paled in comparison although Sylvan puts a nice twist on the typical uest that I certainly didn't expectI also enjoyed Sylvan's portrayal of June's Valforte companions Each of the four men gained a personality of his own and whether they served the role of antagonist helpmeet informer foil teacher or love interest they played important roles in the story while still seeming like real people I also appreciated the way that Sylvan dealt with racial tension between the Valfortes and the majority race of Andrians instead of ignoring the potential for such conflict as many watered down fantasies doWhile the start was a little slow for me by the time I got through the first few chapters I was interested enough in the characters and their interactions to keep going When the author dropped a bomb about a hundred pages in I felt entirely justified in the impulses that had led me to read so far Although this book follows a lot of genre clichés it twisted enough of them in just the right ways to make this an interesting and believable readI'd recommend it to anyone interested in fantasy but also to anyone who appreciates characters who prove their strength in the face of great obstacles

Surviving SerendipityThe most that June expected for her 21st birthday was night of fun with her friends and maybe some flowers and a CD from her fiance She certainly didn't expect to come home to what should have been a dark empty apartment to find her destiny waiting for her wearing bright purple pirate pants Kidnapped by a sinister strange. I absolutely loved this book The author does an amazing job of building a new world without needing 12 pages to do so I love all the characters especially Koen The relationships are endearing and once you start reading you won't be able to stop I highly recommend There were never any slowboring parts it read like a movie I re read the last couple of chapters 3 times because it was just so perfect
