Review: Feyland by Anthea Sharp

Goodreads description:

Feyland is the most immersive computer game ever designed, and fifteen-year-old Jennet Carter is the first to play the prototype. But she doesn’t suspect the virtual world is close enough to touch — or that she’ll be battling for her life against the Dark Queen of the faeries.


Tam Linn is the perfect hero — in-game. Too bad the rest of his life is seriously flawed. The last thing he needs is rich-girl Jennet prying into his secrets, insisting he’s the only one who can help her.


Together, Jennet and Tam enter the Dark Realm of Feyland, only to discover that the entire human world is in danger. Pushed to the limit of their abilities, they must defeat the Dark Queen… before it’s too late.

My review: Feyland is one of the most incredible novels I’ve ever read. So fluent and written so well for a book that hasn’t even been released yet.

Jennet; rich girl transferred to such a new neighborhood, completely transformed by one game.

Tam; the guy living in the Exe-the most run-down part of town, gamer just to escape the troubles in his life.
These two characters were amazing. Seriously. They were well-developed, easy to like. I fell in love with them the moment they were introduced.

What I really enjoyed was how the conflict was given at the very beginning. With so many stories I’ve read, the conflict doesn’t even show up until the end. I think that helped the plot a lot so that there wasn’t much time where nothing was going on. And the technology…wow. This is a world where tablets, like an ipad, are old. Yeah. The tech is so advanced that players can actually feel the video game.

I think Feyland should be a movie. The length was perfect to be a movie- not too long to have to cut everything out, yet not so short that there would be several scenes with the characters staring at each other with background music.

Bottom line? Read. This. Story. I’m not even kidding. Anthea Sharp has such a great writing ability that you should at least give her a chance.

And thank you Anthea, for asking me to review Feyland for you. I loved it so much and literally squealed at the end when I saw there was going to be a sequel.
