Book Description: Enjoy exploring the world of the Firebird Chronicles series with this accompanying short story.
It’s Fletcher and Scoop’s Beginning year at Blotting’s Academy – the place where all story characters go to be trained. Join the young Apprentice Adventurers as they find themselves stranded on a rock in the middle of the ocean, with no visible means of escape. It’s time for them to learn one of the basic lessons of stories – risks have to be taken.
I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I have read the second book in this series and this short story takes place between the first one and the one I read. I thought it was a fun read, I did miss hearing all of the different fun named places. I do get though it was a short story so they can’t all be named. I still think the idea behind this series is fun and that it appeals to all ages, although I would say to the younger crowd, but I still enjoy reading it. I like that there are little life lessons that you learn along the way with Fletcher and Scoop and that there is still humor between them.
I still like that there are stories from other places that are thrown in, this one was a lot of Peter Pan references like Hook and Pixie Dust, and even Scoop and Fletcher talk about how it is second star to the right and straight on till morning. I thought the Gell was an interesting character and I liked his back story and how he was just silly even when they were in a tough situation. The one thing I did not like about the writing of the Gell was that he would caaa caaa a lot during his sentences and was kind of distracting. Besides that I think this was a good book and was a fun quick read. It kept in line with the other story and I am still interested in what is going to happen next with Fletcher and Scoop.
Book Rating: 3.5 out of 5
