Charting Stars (The Nine Reals Tales #1) by Micheline Ryckman - A Review


Hello everyone!!

Today we are reviewing Charting Stars the 1st book in The Nine Realms Tales by Micheline Ryckman that will be published today.

Disclaimer: I was lucky enough to receive an eARC of this book from the author. All opinions are my own.

This book was another great read from Micheline Ryckman aka @whimsicalillustration . I have also read her previous books and I love her writing style.

Charting Stars is a portal fantasy where our main character is transported for unknown reasons (yet) from our modern world to a magic realm. It is an amazing adventure that I really enjoyed reading and it's also a page turner with great main and side characters. Talia is one of my favourites, she is so sweet but also brave even if she doesn't always believe it.  I loved QB and I am sure you will too. The group dynamics between the characters is amazing.  I really liked that  we get to see the story from two POVs, Talia's and Jarrett's. 
I cannot wait to continue with their adventures and learn more about The Nine Realms.

Rating: 4 Stars

Book Synopsis
Talia Benson would consider herself fairly ordinary. Anyone would. Diligent student, only child to a single mother, protector of three cats—nothing crazy has ever happened to her. And Talia wants it to stay that way: stable. Her knack for making friends, along with her obsession with the stars and her love for skirt pockets, coffee, and art, is more than enough to keep Talia happy for the rest of her days—that is, until a single evening in front of a blank canvas becomes the adventure she never dreamed she wanted. 
Now, Talia finds herself lost in a world completely unlike her own, a land where monsters roam and magic thrives, where wars are born then die at the wave of a hand, and where strange entities decide the fate of those who live among the Nine Realms. The guardians of these foreign lands have seen a great shift in the heavens. Something has changed, a prophecy has been spoken—a darkness is coming. But maybe, just maybe, an ordinary girl thrown between worlds could be the key to saving it all. 
Charting Stars is the first book in a spirited, heartfelt young adult fantasy series by Micheline Ryckman that will appeal to the minds of those who’ve always felt, well, ordinary. Talia’s adventures prove that even an average everyday girl can have skills enough to be a hero. And she’s joined on her journey by a lovable cast of characters—some human, some furry, some covered in ivy vines—who will steal your heart away. 

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
