A Powerful & Compelling
Meritt delivers a superb debut.
"Whatever happened to him on this journey had the power to make him stronger. Or he could let it destroy him."
Severe storms are threatening to obliterate the home where the Green Fairies have lived for generations. It is up to young Bozel to find help to save his people before they perish. Along the way he encounters numerous obstacles and life changing situations. Bozel must overcome not only his own personal fears and self-doubt, but grave danger as well. At the same time there is trouble for Topaz and the other inhabitants of Knownotten Kingdom. Otis has been injured and is trapped in a desolate land where he finds himself held in the thrall of a sinister creature. When Bozel finally crosses paths with Topaz and his friends the race is on to hatch a daring plan to save the Green Fairies. Topaz will be faced with the ultimate test of strength, courage and commitment to others.
An abundantly likeable and enjoyable novel for the young and young at heart, Topaz and The Green Fairies is the latest release in an engaging series from author Pat Frayne. It’s often hard to find the right timbre when writing for a restless audience that’s short on attention, but Frayne imbues her pages with a quiet charm that hits the right narrative and emotional beats from the very start. With a whimsical mix of lovable characters that children will quickly warm to, the adventure is reminiscent of time honoured classics. Imaginative and rich in detail, Frayne has a genuine flair for this genre, creating a beguiling world of magic and intrigue whilst careful to capture those human elements of fantasy fiction that make for the best of reads. Underpinning it all is Topaz. A wonderfully imagined character that captures the universal fondness of cats and proves amiably endearing as Bozel’s quest unfolds.
Delightful to the end, Topaz and The Green Fairies proves a magical read and one deserving of a place on your bookshelf. It is strongly recommended.
