The Frights of Fiji by Sunayna Prasad

Welcome to the The Frights of Fiji blog tour
hosted by iRead Book Tours!

Rating: 4 out of 5.

The Frights of Fiji is a fun middle-grade adventure with characters that are easy to connect to and a story that children will enjoy!

The story follows Alyssa, a young girl who lost her parents when she was only 7 years old and now lives with her less-than-perfect uncle. As she works to understand her new situation and how to deal with a caretaker who is not so caring, her life takes another crazy turn!

In her window, a message appears:

“Your life will never be the same again, as magic will interfere.”

Alyssa is kidnapped by a sorcerer, Master Beau, who has lost his powers and is hoping that she is the key to gaining them back. For Alyssa to escape, she must beat Master Beau. Does she have the strength and power to do it?

I found this to be an exciting fantasy story for a young reader! I enjoyed Alyssa, the main character. I think that she will be easy for a child to connect to. The magical elements were really fun. The world of magic that is built into the story sets the stage for a lot of excitement!

I thought that this was a well-written story, and while some portions of the book seemed to slow down a bit too much for me, overall, it was well-paced. The ending of this book sets the stage for a second book and I am looking forward to reading it!

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend The Frights of Fiji for middle-grade readers that enjoy exciting fantasy adventures.

A world of magic and adventure awaits…

Sent to live with her strict, aloof, and uncaring uncle after her parents are killed in a car accident, twelve-year-old orphan Alyssa McCarthy longs for the life she used to have—one filled with fun and love. Then one stormy night, a message appears in the raindrops on the window that will change everything.

“Your life will never be the same again, as magic will interfere.”

Before long, Alyssa is kidnapped by Master Beau, a banished sorcerer with a mysterious connection to her who can only regain his power by weakening hers. Suddenly hurled into a world of wizardry filled with fantastical beasts and marvelous technology beyond her wildest imagination, Alyssa must defeat Master Beau if she ever wants to get home again. But Master Beau will stop at nothing, including using Alyssa’s friends, to ensure he is triumphant.

Originally titled “From Frights to Flaws”, this story is the exciting and enchanting first book in the “Magical Missions” series.
