Today's review is on Feyland: The Dark Realm by Anthea Sharp
I would have to say that Feyland is the most original take on a story involving the Fey that I have come across so far. Set in the future where we have gravity cars and 4D simulator gaming, you are sucked right in from the very beginning.
Jennet Carter, aka "Rich Girl", is the very first person to play Feyland. A 4D simulator computer game designed by her father and his best friend. The game is so advanced that it seems real. In fact when Jennet finds herself at the last battle in the game against the Dark Queen of the faeries, she finds out just how real it actually is. In this battle she is fighting for her very essence, her life.
Now she needs to find the best gamer in town to help her get back "what was lost". She needs a hero to beat the Dark Queen or she will ultimately die. That hero is Tam Linn.
Tam's life is far from perfect little Jennet Carter's. Whereas she lives in the rich section of town, he lives in the poor. Where she lives in the protected, he lives in the dangerous. Where she lives in splendor, he lives in a shack taking care of his special needs little brother, most times without his mother around because of her condition.
When Tam realizes that it is not only Jennet that needs him, but that the human race is in danger he knows he has to keep fighting both in the game and in real life. But will his real life battles get in the way? And can he beat the Dark Queen before midnight on Halloween? Read the book to find out. You won't be disappointed!
Feyland was so entertaining that I had difficulty putting it down. I just had to find out what happened next!! I can hardly wait for Sharp's next installment.
