 Goodreads synopsis:

What if a high-tech computer game was a gateway to the dangerous Realm of Faerie?


Feyland is the most immersive computer game ever designed, and Jennet Carter is the first to play the prototype. But she doesn’t suspect the virtual world is close enough to touch — or that she’ll be battling for her life against the Dark Queen of the faeries.


Tam Linn is the perfect hero — in-game. Too bad the rest of his life is seriously flawed. The last thing he needs is rich-girl Jennet prying into his secrets, insisting he’s the only one who can help her.


Together, Jennet and Tam enter the Dark Realm of Feyland, only to discover that the entire human world is in danger. Pushed to the limit of their abilities, they must defeat the Dark Queen… before it’s too late.



In all honesty, I didn’t particularly like or dislike this book. I wasn’t really motivated to keep reading but I just wasn’t really a fan of the story.

– There were a few pretty sentences in there, such as “The queen’s voice was laced with stars and shadow.” (1%)
– A lot of thought had gone into all this new technology
– The game references were cool.
– Not really instalove

– I winced majorly at the word “noob” (personal pet peeve)
– Wasn’t a fan of some of the similes: “Excitement fizzed through her blood like it was carbonated (1%)
– I found it to be a little weird

I would recommend this book to middle grade readers who are into gaming.

2.5/5 comets
