I was a bit disappointed with this third installment of the Feyland series. I missed the intricate gaming sequences, and the plot line seemed like an afterthought, just a way to continue the series that wasn't quite as cohesive as the first two. I am still interested in this world enough to read more, but I would implore the author to return to the gaming details and elements of fantasy mirroring reality that made the first two so enjoyable.

What do you get when the world of Shakespeare meets a video game?  Some adventure, a few laughs, and a whole barrel full of awesome.  That’s what Sharp has brought us with this final novel in the Feyland Trilogy. Sharp definitely gives her characters some unique challenges to overcome.  She mixes fantasy with reality and some virtual reality gaming to create a melded world that you find yourself lost in.  Sharp’s gripping yet fluid writing style allows you to flow through the story alongside the characters without missing a beat.  Her vivid descriptions allow you to walk beside them through a world you not only know but can also see.   The characters that we’ve come to know and love (or hate) throughout the series return here, each changed slightly from their trials and travels, but as the same individuals that we’ve always known.  Sharp continues to develop these characters so that you feel like you’ve known them your whole life by the end of this novel.  She also introduces some new characters to help round out the cast for this final battle of wills.  These new characters are extremely well developed.  They compliment and help to balance those that we already know.   Overall, this was a fan-frickin-tastic conclusion to the Feyland trilogy, even if I do want to see more of these characters.  It is a journey that I’m sad to see end, but it was well worth the trip (read?).

You'll know how excited I was for this book when I say I read it--the whole thing--the very day I got it. It's been on my TBR list since I read book 1. Ms. Sharp is a master storyteller. She's managed to create a phenomenal world, full of richly layered detail. A world I would love to be able to experience for myself. The characters through this series have been impressive and diverse. I love that in this installment we get to know Zeg better--he's the kind of guy everyone needs for a friend! And we get a new character, Spark. No spoilers, but you will love her! (Or else.) We've got excitement, tension, action, love (of many sorts), and much, much more. Would someone please make a movie or three out of these? Without ruining them, of course! I've said it before, and I'll say it again: This is a must-read! Really. I'm not sure I know anyone who wouldn't enjoy it, and I can't imagine it not becoming a favorite for everyone who picks it up. The Feyland books have found a prized place on my all-time favorite books list. There aren't enough stars to give you an accurate idea of how phenomenal it is.

The game is still playing out for Jen and Tam . As the game has moved on to involving there families, and friends. As the fey try to take hold the few brave friends gather to save not only themselves, but the world. See what new battles they face in the continued story ,where gamming ,fey and humans, make you need to find the end game, or the next level. Play on... .What a story I can't get enough. I am looking forward to the next epic book to come Won't you read with me?

The fantastical conclusion of Feyland trilogy did not leave me wanting. This book brought me back to my raiding days in MMORPGs and I couldn't help but smile during them, however *I* can keep a rogue that off tanks alive with my heals. =P I gotta say, I found this series over the weekend and I finished them all in a span of 24 hours. I could not put them down. I'll be recommending this trilogy to anyone who asks. It also looks like the story will continue with the party's new duties that were bestowed upon them at the end of the book. I am so happy to have found this trilogy.

GAME ON!!! 5 Stars Overall I loved this series!  I can’t wait to read the next ones as well!  (NOTE: this review is based on the box set Feyland: The Complete Trilogy)  At first I was a little disappointed with the first book – The Dark Realm - because I was expecting a lot more magic and fae stuff.  It was still good, just different than how I thought it would be!  Which is one reason why I try to not form an opinion of how I expect the book to be before I read it.  That being said, I read the book fairly or is that faery, quickly and was surprised at how drawn in I was.  I was hooked on the characters & rooting for everything to go their way (the good ones only, of course!  Lol), I cried when they did or for them, I found myself smiling & cheering for & with them.  I couldn’t wait to see if they would outsmart their opponents or get outsmarted themselves, if there would be any new friendships, would any kisses finally happen, would they get caught, would they be saved, JUST EVERYTHING!!!!  I read book 2 – The Bright Court – and book 3 – The Twilight Kingdom – quickly as I was so caught up in it, I didn’t even realize what time it was or how much I had read!!  After completing the series I realized how The Dark Realm (book 1) set everything up for the rest of the series. Let’s not forget that the entire premise of these books is based on a VIDEO GAME!  As soon as Jennet starts playing on the prototype version of the new Full-D system and clicks on the new game called Feyland, little did she realize that her life would never be the same again.  Because the Fey world is dying they need mortals to replenish it & themselves, so the Fey have created a way to access the mortal realm via a very realistic sim style video game.  I love to play video games and would jump at the chance to play on systems like the ones depicted in this series.  Of course I am not sure that I would want to play Feyland, but still…It is such a creative idea to base a series on!  You have such a mix of people of all ages and classes that are both human or mortals as the Fae/Fey would say, and immortals like the Fae/Fey and their Courts of followers.  I loved how the YA book became so much more than that!  I found that I didn’t even think of it in terms of a YA book, well except for the “clean” part (no sex, etc. lol).  Personally, I feel that if I can get that absorbed into a book and NOT pay attention to the genre/class/age group/etc., then that is one great book & series written by an equally great author!  I know that some people will and/or do, complain about the teen characters being too whiny, too wishy-washy, all full of ‘teen angst’ with teen ‘issues’ like “oh is he going to kiss me?” or “Does he think I am cool?” etc. but I think that they forget that the characters ARE TEENS!!!  I had so many theories throughout this series as to who this person really was, or how that was going to play out, etc. but ya, I was wrong on most accounts!  Trust me, I have never been so happy to be wrong!  Also tells me just how great the author is because NOTHING is predictable which makes it that much more of an enjoyable read.

I can't help it....I just love this series. This is one of those books that I just DEVOUR -- escapism at its finest! Tam and Jennet continue on their quest to prevent the Dark and Bright Fey Courts from bleeding over into our world. This time, they will attempt to journey to the Twilight Kingdom, which is a place few dare to tread. It's getting harder and more dangerous each time they step into that fairy ring. Will they have the stamina to survive? Can they continue to resist the allures of the Dark Queen and Bright King? Will the braying hounds of the Hunt finally catch them? What enchanting, deceptive creatures will they find in the Twilight Kingdom? Will Puck turn out to be friend....or foe? Well I'm not telling. You'll have to read it for yourself! Author Anthea Sharpe deftly weaves a story full of lush scenery and fantastical creatures, all woven into a dystopian tale that highlights society's cruelty to one another. I recommend this series for readers 15+.

I read this story way too fast. I should have slowed down and savored the moment more. I couldn't help it, though. I had to know what would happen. :) I'm thrilled with this series. I love the relationship between Jennet and Tam. I've enjoyed the secondary characters. I also feel totally immersed in the world this author has created. It makes me excited for the future of gaming, even though this is imagination, not reality. I was so excited to read there will be more stories coming out of Feyland. I'm hooked.

Probably my favorite part of this series is how real it feels. Oddly enough, the books are like the novel version of the Feyland game they feature -- you go in expecting something fun and interesting, and it turns out to be a lot more than you expected. Usually, no matter how exciting or interesting I find a book, I don't get little twinges of nerves or happiness while I'm reading. The Feyland series is a happy exception. I love reading these books because they seem so real while I'm reading them. Anthea Sharp's writing makes me truly share the characters' experiences, and that's the kind of ability you don't often see, which is all the more reason to relish it when you do. The Twilight Kingdom brings Tam and Jennet closer to the release of the full simulation game Feyland, an event they must stop or face the Realm of Faerie taking over the real world. Fortunately, they've been selected as part of Feyland's beta-testing team, giving them another opportunity to prevent its distribution. The beta-testing also gives us the chance to meet some new characters. I wish we could have seen more of Spark, who seemed like she might have had a very interesting story of her own, but I enjoyed getting to know Zeg better and appreciated Roy's development in this book. I don't want to talk too much about the plot, because I want you to read the book and that would spoil them, but I will say that I was surprised. I have a huge soft spot for...the Elder Fey...and I liked the way Anthea worked this one out. Basically, this is a great series that deserves more attention. The books are quick and exciting reads, and if you like stories based on fairy tales, or if you enjoyed both the portrayal of the fae in Mercy Thompson and October Daye and the virtual world of Ready Player One, you will love this series.
