Tam Lin is a quiet poor boy from the bad side or town. He keeps to himself and has family issues that keeps him from wanting to make friends. He is also the best gamer in town.
Watching Tam-Lin’s and Jennets friendship was sweet. It had a lot of mistrust and secrets but slowly the began to trust each other and believe in each other. I enjoyed the whole Fey gaming world. I personally play video games and can become immersed in them ( or before kids I could now I’m a sporadic game player) . The gaming story was beautiful and imaginative it was not the sweet fairytales it was like the classic ones where there was good, bad, trickery and taught you a lesson. I loved how she intertwined the ballad of Tam-Lin into the book.
I enjoyed this book. I do not think its my age range but It was a good read. I would recommend this to any 12 year old or YA fans. Especially if they like gaming and Faery tales. I can see myself picking up the rest of the series for a fun, quick, light read. But like I said I would definitely recommend this to the YA/ younger YA gaming/ Faery Tale fans.
Well written, fun, enjoyable, YA book. Love the gaming faery tale.
This first book The Dark Realm is an interesting mix of stories and personalities. The primary story is about a virtual reality game being designed in which the players break through to another real world of Feyland. The primary characters are high school students who are fighting their own hormones in a very divided “have/have not” society.
I will not give you a book report but rather my impressions after finishing the first book. I was able to relate to the teen angst even after 60 years of maturing. I could see myself and friends from high school in these characters, as well as myself as a parent of a teen in the character of Jennet’s father.
I loved fairy tales as a child who was young enough to be read to before sleep. I was a fan of Alice and her adventures. As I grew up C S Lewis tales intrigued me. This book is an extension of this interest.
I knew next to nothing about immersive games but it did not prevent my enjoying the book. The author described enough that I could see the picture. My imagination took over from there.
I will recommend this book wholeheartedly. It stands alone and you are not forced to read any more of the trilogy. Of course I am on to the next one because it is that good.
The story starts with a high school gamer who gets in way over her head. In this future world, SIM gaming is the elite level, and Jennet's father is a bigwig at one of the biggest gaming companies in the world. When he brings home a prototype full-submersion simulator game, she can't resist checking it out, and gets caught up in a game that's much more than just a game.
Tam Linn is from the wrong side of the tracks, literally, but he's the glue holding his little dysfunctional family together. When Jennet finds out he's a nationally ranked gamer, she knows he's the one who can help her, but he's got enough problems without some rich girl adding to them.
This is a YA book, but with a sharp edge and a focus on the gaming world that probably won't resonate with teenaged girls. That said, its an absorbing story and as someone who loves fairy legends, I totally appreciated the imagery and nuances the author layered into the novel.
This is the first story in a series, but has a happy-for-now ending that satisfies and stands alone on its own two feet. I'm not sure I will read more of the FEYLAND series, but was completely engrossed by this book and recommend it to those that like young adult books with a touch of fairy magic.
