Fairalon exceeded my expectations! This book incorporates the fantasy world genre into young adult fiction. I think when I was Iris’s age, I would’ve loved reading it myself. I enjoyed it even as an adult. As an English teacher, I would recommend this to one of my students who favors fantasy. T.J. Roberts has a gift of creating a world a child would be able to relate to. In some parts, I was reminded of The Labyrinth (one of my childhood favorites.) I was also reminded of such classics as Harry Potter and Stardust. Roberts is really onto something with this book! All fans of YA and Fantasy should put it on their list!
