Fairy Blues


Fairy Blues (Songs of Magic – 2) by JL Bryan

5 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) With their enchanted instruments charming the crowds, the Assorted Zebras attract interest from record producers, and soon they’re off to cut their first album and music video. Jason and his friends don’t know they’ve just become pawns in a sinister plot by a cabal of evil fairies…

Meanwhile, Aoide and her band pursue a new strategy for regaining their stolen instruments, one that will take them into the most haunted region in Faerie.

The Assorted Zebra’s are have been selected to fly to Ireland and have Marlarkay records produce their music. But this is not going as everyone expected. Some band members don’t mind the changes while others are having a tougher time adjusting to all the changes. And it seems that the contract that they should have read is more binding than they originally thought. We start to see that there is something special about Erin, especially when other fairies are talking about her possibly causing problems in the recovery of the magical instruments.

Then we have the musicians back in fairy. The queen’s knights have kept their life savings to perform an investigation. So, the musicians take it upon themselves to find a banshee wolf to help them track down the instruments. But this is not going to be easy since these are a group of city fairies and are out of their element in the country.

I loved the second book in the series. I wanted to scream at the kids when they just trusted that the contract is ok and signed away. I was really surprised at Erin’s mom and can’t wait to find out more about her. Of course, the fairies are getting closer to reclaiming the magical instruments and it’s going to be a toss up if the musicians or dark fae get them first.

This is a great book for all ages and I recommend it to anyone that likes fairy stories.. Now I can’t wait to get readings Fairystruck.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
