While the Zebras reel from the loss of Erin, Erin herself makes some troubling discoveries while connecting with her ancestors.
In Faerie, Aoide and her troupe seem to finally be enjoying their big break…but danger is on the way, and nothing is ever what it seems when you’re dealing with leprechauns and the treacherous Queen Mab.
Every time I pick up another book from the Songs of Magic series I’m amazed. Honestly, I’m not being sarcastic. What amazes me is how J.L. Bryan can weave a story that has you giggling about its silliness then just a few pages later have you on the edge of your seat worrying about the characters he’s made you truly care about.
Even though this series is on the light side compared to Bryan’s other books. it still has its dark moments. The band has split up after Erin’s ‘death.’ Erin meets ancestors in Faerie that she didn’t know she and secrets are revealed about others that she never expected. Aoide and her troupe also make some startling discoveries while traveling through Faerie and the description is right, nothing is quite like it seems and people aren’t always who they appear to be.
Fairy Luck is another wild ride in the Songs of Magic saga and the story just keeps getting better and more dangerous. No cliff hanger, but readers are left with lots and lots of questions. What exactly is Mad Queen Mab up too? Why was it so important for Jason and Erin to be pulled apart? What is the real magic that surrounds the instruments Jason stole that started this whole crazy story? And finally, what will Erin discover when her family mysteries are revealed? Evidently we’ll find out all the answers soon because Book 7 will be the final book in the Songs of Magic series. Yes, these books are silly at times, but there’s always something more to them too.

Bryan has graciously offered his boxed set for a giveaway ;) All you have to do to win the first four books in this magical series is to tell me in the comments what instrument you would love to be able to ‘magically’ play. That’s it! Good luck! I’ll pick a winner randomly from the comments on August 1.
