The Summer time of Festivals by Maddie Jane
My score: 3 of 5 stars

3.5 stars

The Summer time Of Festivals: Music Of The Druids is guide one in all a fantasy story primarily based round an island stated to be the house of banished druids.

Nineteen-year-old Alyosha Kamenev has a secret; drawn to the druid island and determined for solutions, he borrows a ship and sails to the island the place he hopes to seek out some assist.

The island is a spot of horrors and a mixture of unusual folks; some with magical expertise, others residing a pre-technology life. Alyosha’s journey follows a quest type in style in lots of fantasy tales, though it’s pretty slow-paced with pockets of motion. The world constructing works effectively to a degree, however there are numerous characters to maintain abreast of and I struggled to maintain pictures of every little thing in my head.

One factor which bothered me was how giant the island appeared, with days passing in journey but solely a small portion of the island being traversed. Maybe I missed an area illusional aspect, like stepping inside Dr Who’s Tardis, however I imagined a small island which could possibly be coated in a few days.

That is an okay story, there are numerous good descriptive passages, however the story and characters didn’t actually seize me as a lot as I had hoped.
