Overview

The White Fox by James Bartholomeusz


Jack Lawson lives an average and ordinary life in a typical southern English town, until the day a white fox introduces himself as Jack's guardian spirit and gives him a mysterious talisman. Jack's life continues to spin out of control when his friend Alex, after warning that the town is in grave danger from demons controlled by the Cult of Dionysus, is kidnapped by the cult. Enlisting the help of his friend Lucy, Jack embarks on a journey unlike one he could have ever imagined.

Review brought to you by Annabell Author James Bartholomeusz is the first young adult author to be published under Medallion Press new branch of publishing where Young Adult novels are written by Young Adults (i.e. teenagers. Bartholomeusz has a lot of great potential as an author. He writes well enough but there are many aspects of his novel that could have used a more efficient editor’s touch. The characterization was barely existent which made it difficult, as a reader, to connect to the various amount of characters he created. The pacing and fluidity were constantly at odds with one another. Scenes consisted of pages of description, which not only sounded illogical at times, but were also far too prolonged causing the story to feel weighed down. Sentence structure needed a lot of work. The author gives off the impression he was trying too hard to wow his audience by force of heavy worded descriptions. There are elements of The White Fox that did work though. Jack, along with his best friend Lucy, are thrown into several different worlds filled with spaceships, dwarves, elves and goblins. There is also a lot of magic and one of the aspects I really liked was the fact that magic could be conjured by anyone instead of being limited by one set of creatures or by the main hero. I also like the link to Greek mythology in the good guys being Apollonians and the Cult of Dionysus acting as the villains. My favorite character was the White Fox, Inari. Inari is snarky and sneaky and wise. The White Fox is a decent novel. There are sections readers will very much enjoy. If the author continues to study his craft and get a better editor, I don’t see why he couldn’t become a more widely popular commercial author. For those of you willing to give The White Fox a chance just remember this is James Bartholomeusz’s first novel. There will be two more to come and as much as The White Fox didn’t make full sense at times, I do look forward to seeing how much Bartholomeusz grows as a story teller.

Jack and Lucy... such a pair.  The pair are from Birchford, England.   Jack is an orphan, Lucy well she's just spunky and a typical teenage girl.  Teens Jack and Lucy are literally tossed into another world all because Jack happened to notice strange happenings around his home and was spotted.  Cultish black cloaked demons controlled by the Cult of Dionysus are scattering around the area, to have the Dark prevail and to destroy this world.  Jack sees a white fox and the journey begins when the Apollonians pull them out of their home area to protect them from the cult.  This book has a variety, magic, elves, dwarfs, demons, and is dimensional.  Good character descriptions and easily followed.  For a teen to have written this I must say very well done.  You can tell he put lots of thoughts in the descriptions and seemed to be very well polished.  A few slight misrepresentations of wording, all in all well done.
