Ruler of the Realm

Front Cover
Bloomsbury, 2006 - Children's stories - 429 pages
It is Henry’s third visit to the Faerie Realm, but this time in a rather different guise and to a rather different kind of place. Holly Blue is Queen and Lord Hairstreak appears to be proposing a truce between the Faeries of the Night and the Faeries of the Light. Meanwhile Prince Pyrgus has stumbled across some mysterious crystal flowers with an apparently formidable secret weapon, and there are rumours of a demon invasion led by Beleth, the Prince of Darkness. Queen Blue, wary of her uncle’s uncharacteristic generosity, pays a visit to the Spicemaster’s labyrinth in an attempt to divine the possible future of the Realm. She is warned to beware someone close, little realising just how careful she will need to be - and when she is kidnapped by the most unlikely candidate, the Realm rapidly descends into chaos. In a thrilling adventure Blue, Pyrgus and Henry will find themselves in the midst of a furious battle to protect the future of the Realm and secure the throne for the rightful ruler.

It was cute. I get the feeling that the books could be so much better, if the author would stop with the short little scenes and built upon them. Adding more details would be nice, too.Still, it was a pleasant diversion. Read full review

Though this book is a very fun read, I feel it is not quite as good as the first two books. The book is a little more bizarre (if that's possible) than the first two. And the books start to go down in quality after this one, unfortunately. The book is interesting nonetheless, and an enjoyable read. Read full review
