Author: Sean Paul Thomas
Genre: YA, Fantasy/ Fairies, Adventure

Book 1 review here…

I am back with Book 2 and 3 of Fairy Boy Chronicles, mainly because I have grown lazy with too many chores. Plus the story links together anyway. Life is busy at the moment, babies are hard work, and worse when they start crawling and calling out for every minor detail.

Fairy Boy 2 Review

The story picks up where it left of in Book 1, which is lucky because I read all three in the span of ten days. since this is a younger reader genre. Nothing too twisted and unpredictable, and mostly focus on importance of friendship and helping one another.

Which is why I am recommending this book, not only because it is easy to understand, but its focus. Some kid/ YA genres can be dark, while that is not a problem for an adult, you have to consider which age group you want to give to. Liam is a great hero because he’s the kind of friend that children should be taught to be.

What seemed like a good deal for Liam and friend Lucy turned sour, as they fall prey into a trap the fairy king and Zorn planned. It is a dastardly plan, no one saw it coming. After that, the story focuses more on running away from the mad King and his crazy wizard.

Through it all, Liam never lost sight of hope.

Fairy 3 Review

When things were looking up, Zorn appears, with a gift. Not the happy type of course, crazy Zorn adds to book three a deadline and a sense of urgency. Before that, a few pirate ships to pillage and burn! As Liam tries to save his friends, and get back to his own world, he has to first cross the seven seas.

Man, I love the Peter Pan reference to it. I do have the distinct feel that Fairy Boy of Calton Hill lends a lot of its ideas from Peter Pan, but this is not a rewrite. Half the fun of the book involves our hero finding ways to reach his goal without causing anyone harm (intentionally)

However, this series is far from over. The author throws a curve ball of a twist, even though it is not a cliffhanger ending, I pine for more. As our hero (heroes) are still stuck in trouble, it will be awhile before they face the enemy/ final boss. There is also an air of mystery surrounding the Fairy King and Zorn, why are they such assholes?

All the reasons to read Fairy Boy Chronicles, Liam has definitely grown and still maturing over the three books. He knows his mission, but is lost on how to achieve it. He a strong and likable hero you will want your children to know.

Verdict

The Fairy Boy of Calton Hill just keeps getting more exciting and unpredictable, even for an adult. Your kid will thank you.
