    8. My full 3.5 JEWEL review can be found at One Book Shy of a Full ShelfThis was a delightful story that I think will appeal to older middle grade readers and up T.M Wallace has created a story chock full of characters that kids can relate to They are well written and quite believable in their actions and dialogue I enjoyed the fact that the author s fae were based on the darker, malevolent beings from myth and legend The lighter sparkly fairies tend to get the majority of the attention so this wa [...]

    10. I wonder how I would feel about this book if I had read it before Harry Potter I still wouldn t of loved it, but maybe my hackles wouldn t have been raised so soon As soon as she starts describing the statues, my thought was, Chess are you serious When the witch said, are you sure, it s obvious you want to prove yourself and I can give you the power to do it or something close to that I almost tossed the book.The rest of the book feels choppy like she was assigned to write a book by out line and [...]

    13. I received this book for free through First Reads It was a really sweet story about a girl learning to trust in herself and that being scared is okay as long as you stay true to yourself It s a story of friendship and sacrifice A good read for middle school age children I enjoyed it but it s not a story my 12 year old daughter would want to read, it seems aimed at a younger crowd Good book overall, great imagery in the writing.

    14. This beautifully written novel weaves a magical world in which the reader follows the main character into a battle between good and evil Our heroine Addy finds herself caught in a game that she doesn t know how to play As she travels deeper into the fairy realms, she discovers she is than she thought she was The author has created a rich world of fairy kings and queens, pixies and magic that reminds one of George MacDonald s Princess and Curdie books.
