    Great Young Adult Fantasy with Rock and Roll

    The Rioting Zebras are on tour but without the help of Marlarkay Records. Things are tougher for them but it is more realistic since they have to work back up to where they were prior. And as they are going from one stop to the next with the tour, Queen Mab and Aoide are on the hunt for them. Enter the teddy bears. If that isn’t enough, Erin and Zach’s relationship is starting to take on a more serious note.

    Aoide and Liadan are traveling the human world in search of the magical instruments. I love how they are so confused with this odd world and how they interact with people. Aoide learning about rock and roll was great. We also have a visit from Katie with the dullahan. She always worries me since she seems to be left behind with all of Zach’s attention.

    This is another great step in the Songs of Magic series. I love all the characters and the descriptions. It’s so easy to get sucked into the stories. I am really curious about Erin’s link to fairy. Aoide is becoming one of my favorite characters in the stories. She is taking out of her element but she just keeps going on.

    I can’t wait to read Fairyland and find out what is in store for them next. This is a great series that kids to adults will like. Make sure to check it out.

    I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    This is the third book in the ‘Songs of Magic’ series, and picks up where book 2 – Fairy Blues’ left off.
    Jason, Erin, Mitch, and Dred are continuing on their tour, and the fairies are continuing to hunt for their instruments. There is a packed tour schedule ahead of them, and any number of other worldly creatures out to get them, from gargoyles to teddy bears.
    Can the band survive this hectic lifestyle though? And how long will it be before the fairies get their hands back on those magical musical instruments?

    This was a great 3rd instalment in the series, showing the continued efforts of the fairies and the fairy queen to get the musical instruments back, as well as the unexpected conditions the band find themselves working in! There are also things going on back home that will shock Jason and the band when they find out!
    Proof that being a big rock star isn’t as fantastic as it looks!
    6.5 out of 10.

    Everyone is back in this, the third book of the Songs of Magic series. The group is stuck on a lousy school bus with no air condition touring all across the U.S. but they are really having the time of their lives. Except for the 14 hour bus rides and the fairy creatures trying to kill them. Jason is still pining away for Erin. She is still with the super cheesy Zach but we're kept in the dark about their relationship. Mitch is the "yes man" of the group. I think he'd say yes if they told him to wear a gorilla suit while he played. Dred is just Dred. But, the more the group plays the more dangerous it gets because not only are fairy creatures after them, but the crowds are getting dangerously rowdy. They swarm the bus, cause riots and

    block the bus from moving tipping the bus from side to side until the band is afraid it might tip over. Once it takes Jason and Erin climbing out of the emergency hatch on top of the bus, playing their music to soothe them so they can make a path for the bus to leave. The band, now called the Rioting Zebras, have definitely got a handle on their music and what they can do with their instruments. It would really be a shame if they have to give them up, but at the same time, I think that contract they signed with Malarky might be the death of them, literally.


    Erin gets on my nerves just a tiny bit. She might be on the youngish side of seventeen, but she seems to let Zach walk all over her. She's totally in control when she's on stage, but when he comes around, she let him take over. I hate girls like that. And I don't see the appeal in Zach. He acts as if he's one of the band members. And he thinks he's all that because he gets to shoot a sock commercial??? What? Jason though, is not about to make a move for her. He just sits and listens to her talk for hours on the phone every day with Zach. I'd like to kick him in the rear and tell him to do something I can't publish and just kiss her! Tell her how he feels. I want someone to slap Mitch. He is so annoying. So I guess that leaves Dred. She stays so closed off and so far removed from everyone I have a feeling she's going to surprise us in the end.


    Aiode and the Banshee Liadan, in human form, are in the human world and Aiode is literally singing for her supper and anything else she might want or need. They are hot on the trail of the instruments but so are killer teddy bears, monstrous gargoyles and Icarus of the Kingsguard. So, rather than say anymore about the story, I'm just going to throw some words out there so you know what's coming.


    Katie, the dullahan, Jason crowd surfing, fairy doors, Queen Mab, walking, chainsaw wielding Teddy Bear, labyrinth, enchanted dollhouse, someone arrested, the song "I Want a Boyfriend", a pot roast cook off in TEXAS, food fight, Icarus humiliated, huge concert in LA, potatoes, DJ TaterTot. Need I say more to get you interested? Okay, attacked by flying Gargoyles, trashing hotel rooms, leprechauns, trolls, a kidnapping, and a huge cliffhanger.


    Come on Jeff! Why did you do that to us? The good news is the next book will be out soon. And as you can see, this book has lots of action and just about everything else in it! So, what are you waiting for? Get Fairystruck if you've read Fairy Metal Thunder and Fairy Blues. If not, then what are you waiting for? Enchanted music?
