Sona and the Golden Beasts

We rated this book:


Sona and the Golden Beasts immerses readers in the land of Devia, where the ruling Malech class has banned music to prevent the native Devans from using their magic. Sona, a Malech herself, hears forbidden music everywhere and has to hide her magical abilities to avoid putting herself in danger. One day, Sona discovers an orphaned wolf pup with golden ears, which she believes may be connected to one of Devia’s sacred beasts. Sona, always being quite attuned to animals, is determined to protect the wolf pup. However, when Sona’s long-time nanny falls ill, she has to find a way to protect her newfound companion while embarking on a dangerous quest to secure the “Nectar of Life” for her nanny. Accompanied by a young Devan boy, her loyal pony, and her new wolf friend, Sona must go on a perilous journey with the fate of not just her nanny and the pup in her hands, but the whole land of Devia.

This great novel by the award-winning author, Rajani LaRocca, is a must-read for fans of vivid storytelling and relatable characters. Sona’s quest across the land of Devia will sweep readers away, as she grapples with the lasting impacts of colonial rule and learns to fight for what she knows is right. With its blend of high-stakes adventure, magical realism, and thought-provoking themes, Sona and the Golden Beasts is a great read and will surely do very well when released.
