Book Review: The Missing Fairy Princess by Walter Salvadore Pereira

When I got this book as part of a book tour by b00k r3vi3ws tours, the first thing that appealed to me was the cover of the book, so beautifully designed. I liked the story idea too.

A witch is told of her future being impacted by a young fairy. The incensed witch then uses her powers and deceit to kidnap the fairy and stop her from affecting her future. But in her haste to thwart fate, the witch kidnaps the wrong fairy. When her actions come to light soon, she escapes the Witch’s Court and disappears. But the investigators don’t stop their efforts and their path leads them to the past as well.

As mentioned earlier, the cover art was truly delightful. I think the characters were interesting, and the story, through small chapters, flowed quite well and was engaging for the most part of the book. I liked the Mayor for his kindness and Sarsa too. And the sibling love of Ashlyn for Merlyn. The twist in the tale was nice and kind of caught me off guard. I enjoyed that.

After investigation begins, a lot of characters begin to form. While this is expected, I felt the character names became difficult to remember. It also didn’t help that every character sounded somewhat similar and maybe even too polite. It might be targeted towards children or teens but I felt that language could have been done better.

The ending indicates a sequel to come I think, so that might be interesting to read. This book was too. Wishing the author much success with this book. I rate it 3½ stars on 5.

Poetry and writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.
