About the Author
Nicki Chapelway is the pseudonym used by a completely ordinary- as in you could pass her in the street and not be the wiser- teenage girl. She is only fifteen years old- I know, a real child prodigy- and this is the first of- hopefully- many stories written by her. She enjoys reading, writing (she wrote this book for her own entertainment- not yours; you just get to benefit from her hobby), swimming when she can, and obsessing about other peoples' stories almost as much as her own. She also enjoys watching TV, her favorite movies and TV shows include: Doctor Who, Avengers, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Pirates of the Caribbean. Nicki currently resides in Ohio with her family of eight and two dogs, Rylie and Zoey. She is now working on the next books in this series- when she's not distracted by other stories (both hers and others'). You can contact her at http://pausefortales.blogspot.com

I received a digital version of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own and I give them voluntarily. No compensation was received.
Chelsea, her twin brother and two others find out they have each been traveling to medieval Amar through a portal. They go together and are immediately thrust into a dangerous adventure. It seems their fathers had been there and had left on an important journey, never to return. (The fathers are safe in the contemporary world.) The teens will not be allowed to travel back to their current world until they have followed the path of their fathers and find out what happened to them. It turns out to be a very dangerous journey.
The concept of the travel portal has been somewhat overworked in fantasy novels. A little humor was added this time as the portal sometimes drops the teens in the oddest places, like on top of a table with one foot in a bowl of porridge.
The strength of this novel was character interaction. Chapelway is a teen and has done a great job with the dialog and thoughts teens have. There was lots of humor in Chelsea's thoughts. I really enjoyed that.
There could have been more description as that would have helped readers picture places and people a little better. I read a digital version of the book and several chapters were out of order. The ending of the book is sort of a cliff hanger but I felt it was more just a stopping point in the story line. I would have liked to see some resolution, some completion of some aspect of the story, before the abrupt stop in action.
Chapelway has great potential. The text could use a little correcting of grammar. For example, “Brothers … never appreciate the things us sisters do for them.” (456/3504) Some editing would help the flow of the work as well. Nonetheless, I applaud the author and look forward to watching her grow as a creative writer. This would be a good book for young teens.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through Celebrate Lit. My thoughts are an independent and honest review.
The book is easy to read, but I thought there were a few confusing parts, but in all it was a fairly good read. I recommend this book for teens who like this type of story.
I am giving A Week of Werewolves, Faeries, and Fancy Dresses " by Nicki Chapelway three stars, because 1( it ended with a cliff hanger and I don't feel it was an exciting cliff hanger, and (2) I read the whole book and the teenage characters or myself still have no idea what the quest is, though the book does say the quest has something to do with treason that had been committed over seven hundred years ago.
The characters were normal teenagers until they were transported to Amor and learned that some had magic powers. They were characters that was easy to like and believe in. Even, thought this isn’t my normal type of read I really think I could of enjoyed the book a little more if I had a clue as to why the characters have to finish the quest and especially if I knew what the quest was.
I will say that this was a very good book for a first book and the fact that it was written by a fifteen year old. The action scenes drew me in and kept me enthalled.
Chapters ten and eleven were found at the very end of the book after the “About the Author” section.
I think my granddaughters, if they liked to read would like this series.
Yes, I will be reading the second book in this series.
I was given a complementary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit. The opinions are mine own.
