There is a ton of stuff going on. The story starts with the Rioting Zebras going to have a fundraiser but things are starting off bad when half the band is missing. Mitch/Mick and Dred are trying to do the concert while Jason and Erin return to Chippewa Falls to try and find Jason’s missing sister Katie. They then have to travel to Fairy to find her. At the same time Liandan and Aiode are still navigating the human world trying to find the stolen instruments but are getting closer to finding them. They are still trying to figure out the different things they run across but they do catch up to the kids. This series just keeps getting better and better. I love how Jason and Erin are starting to get closer with their relationship. Mitch/Mick is driving me up the wall with his attitude. I hope to heck he gets knocked off his high horse soon. I adore Aiode and how she reacts to everything she comes across. It’s like watching a kid in a candy store. Plus there are a ton of things happening and some secrets revealed. I can’t wait to see what happens in Fairyvision. This is a great series that will appeal to any age. I received this book from the author, a long time ago, for free in exchange for an honest review.

(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to J. L. Bryan.) This is the fourth book in the ‘Songs of Magic’ series, and kicks off where book 3 left off. (Trying to avoid spoilers so some names will be starred ** out.) Jason and Erin are in the land of fairy, searching for ***** who has been kidnapped by Mrs Dullahan, (the keeper of the fairy gate that Jason originally went through to steal the instruments), whilst Mitch and Dred are left alone on the set of their next big gig, trying to hold the band together until Jason and Erin return. Meanwhile, Aoide, the lutist from the fairy band is making her way to find the band and take back the stolen instruments. Will Jason and Erin find ***** in time? What will happen to the gig without a guitarist and singer? What is Mrs Dullahan’s game? Will Aoide ever get the bands stolen instruments back? This was a rollercoaster ride of a story! The amount of strange things in fairy was just huge and so varied, from sabre-toothed ducks to rivers made of chocolate, unicorns, electric bugs, gumball trees, the ‘sickly sweets’ infection and boats shaped like ducks. It was totally nuts! (In a good way!) I loved how the band was separated and each had their own thing to accomplish, I loved how Jason and Erin’s relationship moved forward, and I loved how more was revealed about several of the characters, including Erin! This really was an imaginative and interesting story, and the questions raised in this book leave room for further dramatic reveals in the fifth book ‘fairyvision’! 8 out of 10.
