Frey (The Frey Saga, #1)Frey by Melissa Wright

This is the first book in a series. Very suitable for the YA market. There is magic and magical creatures, fairies, elves and animals. Frey runs away from home and begins a passage of discovery in to her life and her past. A group aims to protect her from those who wish her harm, but where are they taking her and why? Plenty more adventures to be had in the follow on books.

The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge

Here is another book review from my new talented young book reviewer, Bethany;

The Little White Horse     ‘The Little White Horse’ by Elizabeth Goudge

4/5

As Maria Merryweather explores her new home at Moonacre, she discovers the story of the long-lost Moon Princess as well as some darker secrets. This book is a timeless classic for children. The traditional story of good versus evil is threaded with romance, mystery and magic. The enchanting plot is first class and full of surprises. Maria is a strong fiery character that you can’t help but fall in love with as you follow her on her adventure.

The Battle of Verril by Joseph Lallo

The Battle of Verril (The Book of Deacon, #3)The Battle of Verril by Joseph Lallo

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the third book in the series and it thoroughly deserved its 5 stars, Joseph brought the tale to a wonderful climax. Magic, fantasy and creatures from another world. Our heroes must join once again in many battles before the ultimate challenge. Begin the series with The Book of Deacon and follow the adventures of some great characters and you too may become a fan. I believe this series is suitable for readers from teens to adult.

Magic of Thieves by C Greenwood

Magic of Thieves (Legends of Dimmingwood, #1)Magic of Thieves by C. Greenwood

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

For me this book hovers between a 3 and 4* rating. It is the story of a young girl with magic in her blood, being orphaned and ending up living with a band of thieves in a large wood. The leader goes by many name “The Hand” and our young girl, Ilan, gets called “The Hound”. It echo’s Robin Hood and his band of merry men with the author’s twist. Ilan and the men hide from the Praetor’s men and rob the rich, the story ends when Ilan finds a magic bow and the reader is led to the second book in the series.

The Great Convergence by Joseph Lallo

The Great Convergence (The Book of Deacon, #2)The Great Convergence by Joseph Lallo

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the second book in the series and I enjoyed it as much or perhaps even more than the first. A Fantasy world with magic and some really creative creatures. I love the little dragon. The story continues and the characters return to a war torn world in an attempt to join others who can help stop the war. New battles, new conflicts and a search for the Chosen test all that Myranda has learnt. The book ends in a tantalising finish which can only lead to the next book.

The Unicorn Girl by Melissa LeGette

The Unicorn GirlThe Unicorn Girl by M.L. LeGette

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A young girl has secrets kept from her, but this only causes her to search harder for answers. A world of magic opens its doors and Leah goes on her own quest, learning more about herself on the way. Witches, monsters, dragons and unicorns all become part of her destiny. I had a few doubts about the book at the beginning, but it soon grew on me and I wanted to race through it to follow the adventure.

Legends Of Windemere: Beginning Of A Hero by Charles E Yallowitz

Legends Of Windemere: Beginning Of A HeroLegends Of Windemere: Beginning Of A Hero by Charles E. Yallowitz

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Windemere; every time I read this word I thought of the Lake District in the UK. (I Know the spelling differs!)The book evolves to be full of legends, magic, heros, demons and destiny. Images of Middle Earth came to mind and a Hobbit or two would have fitted easily in to this cleverly woven tale full of imaginative description. It easily stands alone as a well written novel of magical adventure. I really enjoyed reading this book.

The Kingdom of Magic is a fantasy book. Three teenagers are thrown back in time when they discover a hidden room whilst escaping gate crashers at their own party. They travel to a world full of magic where they are given their own magical powers and are led on many adventures in an attempt to stop the mad King and a Dark Wizard.

The Book of Deacon by Joseph Lallo

The Book of Deacon (The Book of Deacon, #1)The Book of Deacon by Joseph Lallo

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

For me the first part of the book was grey and sad with a world at war, I didn’t connect to the characters of the war and the book nearly lost me until the arrival of Wizards, then the story took off, the fantasy world created became colourful and bright, full of potential and expectation. I didn’t want to see the end when our heroine heads back to the other grey world, but I half expected it. Am tempted to read the rest of the trilogy.

Altdorf by J.K.Swift

Altdorf (The Forest Knights, #1)Altdorf by J.K. Swift

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

After a slow start and the introduction of lots of characters I began to enjoy the book. Then at the half way point I started to really enjoy it and was disappointed when it ended. Would definitely consider reading the next in the series. Set in the time of the Medieval crusades, the book follows the tale of a group of soldiers returning to their homes in the Alpine mountains. Mystery, magic, fighting Lords and heroes helping the weak and the poor, all good story making material.
