Review: The Magic Warble by Victoria Simcox

The Magic Warble

Synopsis Courtesy of
Dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals, and an evil queen all these and more can be found in The Magic Warble, an enchanting tale of adventure and friendship.

Twelve-year-old Kristina Kingsly feels like the most unpopular girl in her school. The kids all tease her, and she never seems to fit in. But when Kristina receives an unusual Christmas gift, she suddenly finds herself magically transported to the land of Bernovem, home of dwarfs, gnomes, fairies, talking animals and the evil Queen Sentiz.

In Bernovem, Kristina not only fits in, she's honored as ''the chosen one'', the only one who can release the land from Queen Sentiz's control. But it s not as simple as it seems. To save Bernovem, she must place the gift she was given, the famous ''Magic Warble,'' in its final resting place. And she must travel through the deep forest, climb a treacherous mountain, and risk capture by the queen s ''zelbocks'' before she reaches her destination. Guided by her new fairy friends, Clover and Looper and by Prince Werrien, a teenage boy, as well as an assortment of other characters, Kristina sets off on a perilous journey that not only tests her strength but her heart.

Before I begin my review, first off, I need to make an apology to Victoria Simcox and Dorothy at Pump It Up Book Promotions. I made an error and put this review to be posted on December 5th BUT it should have been the 3rd or 4th. I will not post anything for two days to ensure that this review stays at the top of my blog to be seen and read.

On to my review :)

First off, KUDOS Victoria! One of my favorite kinds of books to read when I was a kid were fantasy adventures. A real fantasy book with a kid (an underdog, to be exact) as the hero/heroine with grand adventures. Well, Kristina is a true underdog and "The Magic Warble" is a truly magical adventure full of fantasy. Kristina is a likable character. You just want her to succeed as the chosen one and overturn the evil queen! Ok, I am adult and I wished I was Kristina going through her adventure!

The entire story flowed smoothly from start to finish. A quick, fun and enjoyable read!

It has truly been a while since I read a book that has made me feel "excitement" and "The Magic Warble" has done it. If you want to feel like a kid again, pick this up!
