Zäria and Avery, two teenage faeries seeking adventure, get more than they bargained for when they start spying on the elves of Eerie Hollow. They discover why the elves are making delectable chocolates in the forest only to be captured by their adversary, Thordon who threatens them into taking on a quest. They run into more trouble while crossing through The Perilous Forest when they meet a witch with her own agenda. Their only hope is to locate an ancient faerie sanctuary they’ve only heard of in legend. Secrets are revealed about Zäria’s parents, which leaves her conflicted and forced to make some tough choices. Just when the fae think their troubles are over, the kingdom of Saizia is in danger of being destroyed. Will Zäria and Avery be able to get help on time? How will they defeat the evil Thordon? Inspired by the author’s children, Faeries of Saizia is a unique story that will instill a love for reading, love for nature, and belief in life’s endless possibilities.

Faeries of Saizia is a wonderful fantasy adventure for young readers which includes faeries, elves, witches and dragons.

I felt nostalgic reading the beginning as it reminded me of the excitement I felt whilst reading a fairy tale as a child. As I read on, the book becomes darker, with twists and turns, so not suitable for a sensitive young reader.  

The main characters are young faeries, Avery and Zaria, who both long for adventure. They find themselves in Eerie Hollow, not realising its forbidden for faeries and run under the evil King Thordon. As they are caught, he offers them a choice to lose their wings or take themselves out of their land of Saizia, on a quest to find a seed. On their journey they find themselves in danger and must work together to return on their mission.  

An exciting read and I thoroughly enjoyed the magical elements.
