An abundantly likable and enjoyable novel for the young and young at heart, Topaz and The Green Fairies is the latest release in an engaging series from author Pat Frayne. It’s often hard to find the right timbre when writing for a restless audience that’s short on attention, but Frayne imbues her pages with a quiet charm that hits the right narrative and emotional beats from the very start. With a whimsical mix of lovable characters that children will quickly warm to, the adventure is reminiscent of time honored classics. Imaginative and rich in detail, Frayne has a genuine flair for this genre, creating a beguiling world of magic and intrigue whilst careful to capture those human elements of fantasy fiction that make for the best of reads. Underpinning it all is Topaz. A wonderfully imagined character that captures the universal fondness of cats and proves amiably endearing as Bozel’s quest unfolds.
Delightful to the end, Topaz and The Green Fairies proves a magical read and one deserving of a place on your bookshelf. It is strongly recommended. - Book Viral Review
