The powerful sorcerer Asgall has been banished from the magic realm of Coraira, but not before throwing twins Asher and Ariana Caine into the future. In a place and time without magic, the two are on their own, unable to use their powers to get back home.

Meanwhile, a new darkness has entered Coraira, threatening all of the world’s magic and all of those who practice it. Only the combined power of Asher, Ariana, and a mysterious girl named Teagan can protect the realms.

Will the twins find Teagan in time?
Could this new darkness strangle all of the world’s light?
What if the twins never get back to the people and place they love?

This was a very different instalment to the Legend of Rhyme series. Where the previous books have focused on a fantasy world, this book ties the world to our own and brings it to the present and we learn that Rhyme is actually from the past and Coraira is still a magical realm that exists alongside our own.

Mann's writing is definitely maturing along with her series and her readers. I am finding each book more and more complex and layered although they are all still MG and simple to read. I love seeing the developments not only in the plot, but also in the characters. There is so much more than first met the eye in Elora of Stone.

There's another cliffhanger at the end of this one which will leave readers anticipating the next book and I can't wait to see what Mann does with the series. I also enjoy how she addresses issues such as pollution with the readers as it's exactly the right age to urge them to think of the consequences of their actions for the future.

This is a lovely fairy tale and I can really recommend it to anyone of any age that loves childhood fantasies.
