What I would call a wonderful read! My children loved it and were happy to be tucked up in bed and be read too! If you like stories that ignite your imagination and your children's then this is one you should buy. Reminded me of a time gone by when good stories and no silly gimmicks were enough. Thank you Kevin Rattan.

I don't want to go into the plot as it is covered as much as it needs to be in the summary, but it is a well written story, well paced and plotted. If you have enjoyed books such as The Secret of Platform 13 or Dial A Ghost then you will enjoy this just as much as it is similarly written and mostly timeless (there are a couple of references to the modern world, but not many).
The main characters in it are twelve years old, so you can judge from that if it is the kind of book you may be of the age for. I await the author's next books with interest.

Warning for Kindle readers (which is everyone at the moment): There are some chapters from the author's next book at the back. This means that you get to what you think is the end of a chapter, flick to the next page and find that the book has ended. Because I watch the progress bar as I read I was caught out in a way, and felt that I somehow missed the end. This may just be Kindles and me, but there you go.

The feeling of this story is a little like the classic children's tales like The Owl Service, but subtly brought up to date.

Adam has always known faries exist, he's lived with one since he was born in the family ancestral home. But he had always been sure his magical boggart is the last of the fairies, because that's what he told him. But is it true, are there others slowly suffering in other ancestral piles which no longer house families for the faries to look after?

This story is stylishly written with humour and suspense. An excellent read for youngsters of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars perfect for young boys 16 July 2013
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Yeah, a book on fairies is perfect for young boys... Well, that's what I got out of the comments Glenn Reynolds (who's seldom wrong) posted on his blog; and, we've had a real challenge getting our 9 year old to find anything he's interested in reading to the end. Not that he's bad at reading, he's often a grade or two above in ability. He's just not good enough for the subjects he really likes and is bored to tears with the selections from school and relatives. Low and behold, we all looked forward to the bed time reading. Literary quality may only be a 3 or 4 star but so what if it met only the standards of English majors and teachers. I give it all 5 stars because it got my son to read it, enjoy it, and even look forward to a sequel. (Prior to this he liked the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series; Big Nate and Archie and anything Star Wars or Lego. He wouldn't get past the 1st 2 pages of Warriors Box Set because of the violence with animals.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't wait for book 2! 29 Jun. 2013
By Douglas A Rehnstrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is super-fun, fantasy adventure for kids of all ages. The story is set in modern day England where a family lives with what they think is the last of the fairies. Then, Adam discovers another fairy in distress, and makes the mistake of bringing it home. The trouble then begins...

Well, I don't want to give away the story, but you're sure to enjoy the adventures. I can't wait for book two to be published.

This is a great book for young readers and all readers who are young at heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars This was fun! 3 Aug. 2013
By Myra - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book made me happy. It's a short, fun book for kids that was -- well, it was fun! The subject of fairies is always a winner, but I also liked the characters and their relationships with each other. Adam and his family were quite entertaining, and I thought they interacted well. The friendships were also dealt with nicely (predictably, but nicely), the banter between Sophie and Adam believable of longtime friends.

I enjoyed the stubbornness of the fairies, and how Adam keeps getting into trouble because he says things without thinking and soon regrets it. `Why didn't you just unplug it?' he asks their boggart, after the little fairy tried to bite through an appliance cord. `Unplug? What's unplug?' Oops!

Cute story. I would read the sequel.

(Read on a Kindle. I love, love the cover, in color or greyscale.)

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Fantasy World 14 Aug. 2013
By Megan C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Once again, I read a book that is part of an unfinished series...it drives me crazy when the book is great. This was a great book with a great story about fairies - but not the Tinkerbell sort of fairies. Not even close! I could totally see myself getting into this as a series when I was a teenage girl - but boys will love it too. As a 30something woman I enjoyed it too. It's a light read and very fun, which I enjoyed. It could have used some more editing because there were some glaring (to me) typos. Otherwise, I look forward to the next book!
