Format: Hardcover
Ralph Stevens is a tried and true geek. He's adept at computers, a gaming aficionado and awkward around girls, but a nice, creative guy overall. However, his otherwise healthy imagination has been hampered by his parents' lifelong prohibition against wishes. No wishing on stars or birthday candles for Ralph!

One summer, when he was most in need of adventure and wish-fulfillment (having been denied his dream job of game designer at Monomyth), he receives a letter from his mother's family in England. Would he be interested in coming abroad for the summer and helping set up their computer network? Not bothering to think too long about this odd request, Ralph sets off, without his parents' permission, to live with the Battersbys. And so begins the journey of a lifetime, one that centers on the wishes of his cousins Cecil, Beatrice and Daphne and that will finally explain his parents' ban on all wishes.

GEEK FANTASY NOVEL by E. Archer is a furious action-driven tale full of exploding rabbits, oppressed fairies, homicidal unicorns, an evil Duchess, a Snow Queen, the undead and family intrigue. Clever and strange, the novel plays with fantasy and adventure genre conventions and delivers a thrilling story.

Cecil is the first of the quartet to be offered a wish and then is whisked away to a fairy-land where the bodies, both living and dead, of fairies are used as construction material. His wish is to free them, hero-style, from their subjugation at the hands of the powerful elite. The result is that his sister Beatrice is killed, and not even Daphne's wish to save everyone can bring her back. Finally it is Ralph's turn to try to save Beatrice, and the story moves into the Underworld where the Recently-Living and the Soon-to-be-Dead are at odds.

This is a novel of which I just finished for the 2nd time. It's better than I remember with a sweet ending and great character to boot. The author was great, with subtle humor and incredibly wording. It wasn't all "in your face" jokes. It didn't try to hard and it turned out great. I recommend this book to anyone who loves funny books, adventures, and stories that stick with you for their depth.

I read this book in a couple days. I'm a 38 year old adult female. There were a couple places where it dragged, but I did find it very humorous and quite unique. Though it is written for children, the humor would be more appreciated by adults. It's a good read and not heavy. It is a nice break for the brain.

I was surprised by the plot. I loved the characters and the twists. My 6th grade son and I both enjoyed!
