Feyland: The Bright Court

Feyland: The Bright CourtFeyland: The Bright Court
by Anthea Sharp

Published May 2012
340 pages

This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.


Jennet Carter escaped the dark faeries of Feyland once. Now, fey magic is seeping out of the prototype game, beguiling the unwary and threatening everyone she cares about.


Tam Linn may be a hero in-game, but his real life is severely complicated. Still, he’ll do whatever it takes to stop the creatures of Feyland, even if it means pushing Jennet toward the new guy in school—the one with an inside connection to sim-gaming… and the uncanny ability to charm everyone he meets.


Despite the danger, Jennet and Tam must return to Feyland to face the magic of the Bright Court—and a powerful new enemy who won’t stop until the human world is at the mercy of the Realm of Faery.

Wow. Just---wow.

I loved the first book, and as much as I was looking forward to this one, I was a little concerned that I'd be let down. (It happens a lot with second books. I didn't need to worry. The Bright Court reminded me how much I loved The Dark Realm.

There's no need to say how happy I was to see Tam again. He's one of the best book characters I've ever read.

If there's anything that could have made this book even better, it would have been just a little bit more happening within the Feyland game. I love that place!

Anyone and everyone who enjoys fantasy, gaming, a great story, amazing characters, incredible writing, worlds that are so alive they don't stay within the pages---I could go on and on---MUST read this. If you haven't started this series yet, do not wait another second. You won't regret it!

Now comes the horribly hard, frustrating job of waiting for the next book.


10/5 stars (Yes, I know that doesn't exactly work. Deal with it.)
