"A rock & roll fairy tale.
Jason plays guitar in a teenage garage band called the Assorted Zebras, but they have no fans, no gigs, and they're going nowhere. Even worse, Jason has a crush on their lead singer, but she doesn't seem interested in him at all.
Then Jason steals instruments from the fairy world. Soon the band is enchanting crowds, and Jason is a step closer to the girl of his dreams, but the new gear is brimming with dangerous and destructive magic they can't control.
Their shortcut to success has cost a troupe of innocent fairies their livelihood and turned Jason and his band into enemies of the powerful Queen Mab, who sends supernatural bounty hunters to track them down, including one of the most dangerous horned creatures in Faerie...a small unicorn named Buttercake."
Another amazing debut, I had a great time reading this book. It moved wonderfully, allowing my mind to immerse in a great story!
What if the instrument you played is magical? It can gather a crowd and make you famous in a instant. I know, right? Imagine what theses instruments could bring you! And that folks, is exactly what the book is like. Jammed packed with great action, instant fame, and of course who can forget those pesky fairies. Pssh!
The love interest is what I expected. I love watching them admire each other from afar. I have a feeling that around these instruments, their love will deepened. I liked that they already have a friendship established and the tension between them is the best. They understand each other and have a love that I hope will one day will be.
If you love an out of this world story read this! It's really unique with a fresh new spin on music. Fairy Metal Thunder represents everything that should be in a YA book. Fun, exciting, and magical! Thrilling and awesome, Fairy Metal Thunder rocks!
I give it 5 BITES!
