If you're looking to buy this, then presumably you've read the first book in the series, Dancing Jax. If you've not yet read this, then stick it in your basket right now and prepare for a treat. Robin Jarvis has surpassed himself and become a huge figure on the fiction stage. I almost wrote 'children's fiction,' but this series is seriously dark and twisted, and not really for younger children. (They'd love it though. And then have nightmares, probably.)

Freax and Rejex takes place in a UK that's been taken over by the DJ phenomenon. It's a tale of those who are immune - who won't succumb to the book or the fruit. These children have all suffered much already, but for them the real pain is about to begin. One of them has the power to throw the Ismus' plans into disarray, but first they have to survive. On top of everything, one of them is a spy, reporting all that happens to Jangler and the Ismus.

Look, just read Dancing Jax and then this book, okay? They're incredibly, amazingly, stunningly good reads. And they're going to be classics.

Roll on Fighting Pax......

Dancing Jax, the first in this series by the wonderful Robert Jarvis, was very enjoyable- Freax and Rejex is truly something else. Quite simply one of the best books I have ever read. Jarvis has surpassed himself.

This second book is very dark. Time has passed since Felixstowe was taken over by the book within the book- 'Dancing Jax'- aptly described as a 'weapon of mass mind destruction'. The only under 16s left in the UK immune to the power of Dancing Jax (the 'abherants) are sent to what can only be compared to a concentration camp. Things become very sinister very quickly as creatures from the realm of the dawn prince are brought into the real world to guard the camp. It is difficult to say more about the storyline without ruining a gripping, captivating read. This book has stayed with me ever since I completed it and I feel that I am finding my mind constantly wandering back to it. I haven't stopped talking to friends about it since!

Filled with social commentary and ideas concerning the decline of the young minds of the 21st century, this second book is much more than young adult fiction. Robin Jarvis could almost be described as a very accessible philosopher.

'The vain and shallow, the weak-minded herd with a false sense of entitlement- that's the driest kindling for the hungry fire of my sacred words.' Austerly Fellows, 1936.

We begin to learn more about The first attempted launch of Dancing Jax in 1936, why it didn't work, and a bit about the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Austerly Fellows.

The colloquialisms and stereotypical teenage characters felt initially a little cringe worthy, however, as we progress we find these niggly criticisms unimportant.

Imaginative, scary, witty.. It is just a good, entertaining read. Robin Jarvis is an author who is a delight to read, both as an adult and as a child. He was my favourite author growing up, and he remains one of my favourites Adam adult. A modern fairy tale.

After stumbling across the first book in the library, I was instantly intrigued about the book. Great idea, and this second one is even better. If like me, you like your fantasy with a very dark twist, this is the series for you. Vividly written and utterly absorbing. No spoilers from me, but if you liked the first one, you'll love this one. Horse meat sausages don't sound so bad now......

I absolutely loved Dancing Jax and waited with great anticipation for this sequel to appear. Well I wasn't dissapointed. Things have really moved on in Britain since the close of the first book. The whole country is now in the grips of Mooncaster and believe that their real lives are strange dreams punctuating their true lives in Mooncaster and the Ismus is attempting to spread the book around the globe. However, there are still some people who are immune to the powers of the book and are living as freax and rejex on the outside of society. This book sees them rounded up and taken to a camp where the Ismus intends to force them into the world of the Dancing Jax.

I will say this book is not for the faint hearted. It deals with some fairly heavy issues and some scenes are particularly distressing but don't let it put you off because it is a superb read, masterfully written and I can barely wait for the final part in the trilogy. As a children's librarian I wish all children's fiction was of this standard.

This book is incredible. Robin Jarvis has taken an idea which, when you explain it to people, sounds a bit odd, and then infused it with a brilliant writing style, and incredible plot lines. This book will grip you and hold you fast.

Set in a dystopian UK this book describes the sequence of events for the world as the book "Dancing Jax" takes over the minds of people. A deeply evil book, Robin Jarvis has succeeded in writing a book which is honestly impossible to put down.

10/10

This is an awesome, addictive and completely compelling read. Please Mr Jarvis write quicker.

The Dancing Jax have taken over, no where is safe unless you have read "The Book".
Your family and friends no longer recognise you as you but as an Aberrant. And will kill you if they can't convert you.
All of this to deal with and your not even an adult, surely someone will help, won't they?
The curtains between reality and the world of Mooncaster blurr and blend and life becomes a matter of fighting or be killed.

Totally scary and out of control. On a level footing with the adult authors in fact a bit above cause it takes a lot to keep a teenager's attention.
Your name isn't Austerly Fellows is it?.......
