The 8th book in ‘The Book of Deacon’ series. Although it isn’t actually part of the main series.
A genuine stand alone book that can be enjoyed either with or without the main series, and vice versa. It just so happens that this story happens in the same world as ‘The Book of Deacon’ series.
So what’s it about? Well, to begin, it’s mostly a children’s story, and if you have any children who like things like fairies and mermaids then i’m sure they’ll love you to read them this story.
Essentially, a fairy ends up getting snatched from the shore by a merman and dragged off under the sea for a rather big and exciting adventure. What more can a child ask from a story?
And even if you’re not a child and just including this book because you’re reading ‘The Book of Deacon’ as a whole series like i am, this is a nice fun book to read. After all the heaviness of ‘The Battle of Verrel’ and the end of the war, it’s nice to have a book like this to take a breather from the main series before diving back in for the second half. It really is a great, half time, refreshment read.
So, to sum up, a nice easy read, which i think would be great for children either for reading themselves or being read to. The characters are enjoyable, well written, fun, and keep you on their side all the way through.
And now i dive straight back into the main series with ‘The Redemption of Desmeres’.
