CAROL MARRS PHIPPS
& TOM PHIPPS
Review by Roy Murry, Author
I loved WHAM, the first book in this series. See my review of that http://bit.ly/2riA6it. In WHAM, two worlds collide, the Fairy's world versus the Elite controlling one. The contrast is brought alive in the Phipps' vivid and sometimes dark prose.
In THEN, the saga - Good vs. evil continues dramatically. Tess, a fairy, with trolls, wizards, and humans are trying to take back the ruling of the world from a despotic queen. The queen's powers have increased because of witchcraft tools.
Tess and her Underground friends proceed on their quest. And the queen goes about destroying their world and trying to find them.
It is a simple story, but the antics (Tess travels back in time), multicultural characters, and the fantasy backdrop (The world above and below) gives a whole new meaning to the word WOW.
What is real and what is not, is left to the reader's imagination.
After reading 'THEN,' your imagination will expand. That is the main reason I read books 1 and 2 of this series, which I never do - read a series. I may go on the read 3.
I recommend starting the series with WHAM. However, THEN, as a fantasy, stands on its own.
