Queen Madrina and her Royal Court were coming to Somewhere in a few days. Rowan met his companion, Dorialle, in Somewhere's major herb garden with their baby son and informed her that Queen Madrina was coming to visit their son. Rowan, Lady Sylph, and the other eleven fairies created a portal connecting Somewhere and Fairy Land.
King Sigil, Queen Madrina, and their Royal Court began the naming ritual. Rowan and Dorialle called their son Bosco, and the names of the other twin girls, Gwyn and Wrenna, were also entered into the book of names. Queen Madrina stated that if these children had not selected a talent or apprenticeship after ten years of spending time with their families, they would be forced to labour in the Royal Court for five years. They would be looked after there till they found their life path. Get a copy of Cat Ritchie's fascinating book, Bosco and the Bees, to find out if these children were successful in their lives or ended up serving at the Royal Court.
I admired the author's creativity while writing this fantasy novel because I found the storyline perfect. This book's descriptive style left me wondering as I read about many aspects I was unaware of before reading it. This book taught me much about flowers, such as elderberries, daylilies, and marigolds. The book would also enlighten readers on the principal species of bees among thousands of other species. I also learned about rocks like calcites and granite and the relevance of most species' relationships with nature. I most identified with the characters Mirror and Queen Ruby because they played vital roles in the story, such as when Mirror highlighted the importance of our emotions.
I found no reason to dislike this book, and because of the positives above, I am giving it a perfect rating of 5 out of 5 stars. The book was also professionally edited, since I found a few errors, which shows the editor did a good job. I recommend this book to young readers and others who enjoy reading fantasy stories about nature.
