The Magic Warble review and giveaway! CLOSED
As a child I always enjoyed being taken to another world or another place. I have always had a bit of imagination and it always seemed that a good book could allow everything to come to life. It always seemed some of the most enjoyable books to read were those filled with fantasy, fairies, gnomes, Princes, etc. So when I was approached by Victoria Simcox to review her book and after I read what it was about, I got very excited to return again to that world of fantasy and fairy tales that I once enjoyed as a child.
About "The Magic Warble":
Twelve-year-old Kristina Kingsly feels like the most unpopular girl in her school. The kids all tease her, and she never seems to fit in. But when Kristina receives an unusual Christmas gift, she suddenly finds herself magically transported to the land of Bernovem, home of dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals, and the evil Queen Sentiz.
In Bernovem, Kristina not only fits in, she’s honored as “the chosen one” the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz’s control. But it’s not as simple as it seems. To save Bernovem, she must place the gift she was given, the famous “Magic Warble” in its final resting place. And she must travel through the deep forest, climb a treacherous mountain, and risk capture by the queen’s “zelbocks” before she reaches her destination. Guided by her new fairy friends, Clover and Looper and by Prince Werrien, a teenage boy, as well as an assortment of other characters, Kristina sets off on a perilous journey that not only tests her strength but her heart.
I really enjoyed this book. I would compare it to some of the classics such as The Chronicles of Narnia, Spiderwick Chronicles and The Bridge to Terabithia. There were so many unique characters whom helped make the story interesting and fun. The characters were all very believable and I could tell the author put much thought into who they were.
I felt the story kept my interest the entire book. The story is filled with suspense and even some surprises along the way. In all honesty, I would love to see a sequel to "The Magic Warble". I feel the ending fit well, but I just wanted to read more. The book was written well and a fairly easy read. I think this is a prefect fantasy book for youth from grade school to teens. Even adult may find themselves enjoying it as well as I did.
