The Dragon Ring by Maggie Secara 4 starsThis was a ride to a faerie land that I ve never visited before There s great description that gave me a vivid picture, lots of action, and a fair bit of guessing in terms of what the tasks set for Ben Harper were all about I d love to meet the King and Queen of Faerie, though not if Titania is spitting and hissing There s humour in The Dragon Ring that softens some of the darker aspect I am loving this book M After slogging through books 23 of Miss Peregrine s Peculiar Children, this was like skipping through the park.I enjoyed the characters, Faerie, and a plot that made sense Will probably read books 2 and 3, even though this stands nicely on its own. I loved this book So imaginative, such a clear voice in the narration and the main character Fully realized characters and a fabulous, faerie fantasy with a vast knowledge of history thrown in. Great urban fantasy funny, magical, with a good helping of history. I knew I was going to enjoy this book from the first page, when the Raven spiralled into the sun over Dartmoor, and icy wedges of air streamed past the sharp eyes, poured across the stretching wings as he reached over the horizon for the moon s white disk A tale replete with rich prose, fading from dreamlike faeryland to touches of earthy humour, and back again Until Ben Harper, and American TV presenter, cannot tell where one world ends and the other begins.Nor does the reader, scarcely Give me the Sparrow and save your world, says Titania Not for your faerie Kingdom Ben shouted, and sat strait up in the darkness Sparrow is Ben s sickly son, swapped for a changeling, and Ben is drawn into an internet type adventure game, but he cannot hit Save and come back later There is far too much at stake.I can visualise this as a fantastic Disney film, with enough effects to fee Author Maggie Secara has done something truly splendid here she s combined an outstanding knowledge of history and theatre into an urban fantasy worthy of Charles de Lint Frankly, I can think of no higher praise.The protagonist, Ben Harper, is a reality TV show host and traditional musician He manages to run afoul of the fae near his Dartmoor home on numerous levels, and breaks an important artifact in a fit of rage that only makes matters worse The artifact in question is the titular dragon ring, made from fairy gold Then, Titania decides she wants Ben s son can nothing else go wrong Oh, of course it can.So, now he must go back through history to find the pieces he broke in order to restore the ring it is a little confusing on the surface, but rest assured that it all comes together soon enough and save his son With the help of Oberon, Odin
