Jack MacFadden has an imaginary friend who turns out not to be so imaginary. Jack is apparently a faerie prince and his imaginary friend is really a faerie named Puck who has been watching out for Jack in our world. When he turns 13, Jack finds out who he really is and an evil fairy named Connor the Dark starts sending evil minions to capture. Connor realizes that Jack is a powerful faerie and could get the rightful king and queen of the faerie realm back to their thrones. Jack escapes the attack with his classmate Steph, Puck, and a new friend, the brownie Old Tom, and they all vow to stop Connor. It will be a long and dangerous trip to the Faerie Realm with a lot of obstacles. Can Jack and his friends stop Connor from his evil reign?
I loved this book. I liked all the talk about faeries. I like the Faerie Realm that Mr. Andrews created. I really liked Jack. He is the kind of character I would want for a hero. Kind, cool, calm, and just heroic! This book had tons of action in it and it was written really well for all ages! I also really like the cover art. The book is short, only 82 pages but it is a “novella” (which I had to look up what that was ;) ) and I think the whole story was told really well in the book. I recommend this book to kids 9+.
This is the second book of Mr. Andrew’s I have reviewed and I have to say that I really enjoy his writing! Please check out my review of his book “The Serpent in the Glass” by clicking HERE.
