The Dragon Carnivale (The Queen of the Realm of Faerie) by Heidi Garrett

In Illialei, a light queen practices black magic.
In Tyrannis, the dragonwitch rises to power.
In the Mortal World, Umbra pursues the halfbloods as vessels of incarnation.

Energies in the Enchanted World are shifting and new alliances are forming; the Battle of Dark and Light has begun. Melia is desperate to make things right with Ryder, the young priest fromIdonne, but first she must warn the halfbloods in the Mortal World that Umbra is coming for them--and face the powerful Dragonwitch and her spectacular Dragon Carnivale.

My Review

The Dragon Carnivale picks up from The Flower of Isbelline left off with Melia and Tatoutraveling to Illialei to find Uncle Raffles.  Along the way like most journies for Melia, things aren’t easy and it seems one thing happens after another for the two companions.  All these “trials” test Melia but I feel are actually preparing her for the final “battle” at The DragonCarnivale against Sevondi and Umbra.
Throughout the series, you have seen Melia grow and accept being half-fairy.  She learns who she is and truly accepts the magic she does possess which will help her defeat Umbra in the end.

I had fallen in love with this story right from the beginning.  The main characters each are unique and add their own touch the story.  You find yourself falling in love with some, hating most.  The world in which Melia lives in just enchanting and if under good circumstances I would love to live there myself (perhaps when and if Umbra is defeated…yup not giving anything way LOL).  The story flows perfectly and everything is all tied together when Meliaarrives at The Dragon Carnivale.

If you love fairies, enchanting worlds, mystery, laughter than this book is for you.  If you haven’t read the first two you need to do that first and I will tell you that you will not be disappointed!
