Akarnae Special Edition

Book One: The Medoran Chronicles

Lynette Noni

Featuring a map of Medora, exclusive fan art, a deleted scene from Raelia and author Q&A, this deluxe hardcover edition of bestseller Akarnae will stand out on your shelf with gold detailing and a ribbon bookmark to keep your place.


With just one step, sixteen-year-old Alexandra Jennings’s world changes—literally.

Dreading her first day at a new school, Alex is stunned when she walks through a doorway and finds herself stranded in Medora, a fantasy world full of impossibilities.

Desperate to return home, she learns that only one man can help her… but he’s missing.

While waiting for him to reappear, Alex attends Akarnae Academy, Medora’s boarding school for teenagers with extraordinary gifts. She soon starts to enjoy her bizarre new world and the friends who embrace her as one of their own, but strange things are happening at Akarnae, and Alex can’t ignore her fear that something unexpected… something sinister… is looming.

An unwilling pawn in a deadly game, Alex’s shoulders bear the crushing weight of an entire race’s survival. Only she can save the Medorans, but what if doing so prevents her from ever returning home?

Will Alex risk her entire world—and maybe even her life—to save Medora?

Highly recommended!” — James Dashner, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Maze Runner series.

More about the author

“Let me say right up front that Lynette Noni is a very talented writer. Her books tell stories that draw you in and refuse to let go. Her characters are memorable and quick to surprise. I cannot wait to see what she will do next.”

“Lynette Noni is a masterful storyteller. Her characters steal into your heart and won’t let go!”

“When Lynette Noni opens the door to another world, don’t hesitate: jump in and enjoy.”

“Lynette Noni creates vivid characters who jump off the page and demand we care for (or hate) them. She also paints a vibrant Medora that is as real as it is fantastic. Lynette entwines both of these writing skills to create a fantasy series up there with Harry Potter, Nevermoor and Narnia.”
