Review: Fairy Metal Thunder (Songs of Magic #1) by J.L. Bryan

A rock & roll fairy tale.
Jason plays guitar in a teenage garage band called the Assorted Zebras, but they have no fans, no gigs, and they're going nowhere. Even worse, Jason has a crush on their lead singer, but she doesn't seem interested in him at all.
Then Jason steals instruments from the fairy world. Soon the band is enchanting crowds, and Jason is a step closer to the girl of his dreams, but the new gear is brimming with dangerous and destructive magic they can't control.
Their shortcut to success has cost a troupe of innocent fairies their livelihood and turned Jason and his band into enemies of the powerful Queen Mab, who sends supernatural bounty hunters to track them down, including one of the most dangerous horned creatures in Faerie...a small unicorn named Buttercake.
 It's nice for a change to read a fun, light hearted story. Not that it doesn't have a few close calls. The storyline is light & energetic with just the right amount of seriousness. The main character is a likable young man with good friends. Of course, being a teenager only guarantees a certain amount of trouble. They do find an unexpected ally. Also,some really creepy foes. The author leaves just enough un-done & un-said to have a good lead into the next book. It will be interesting to see how the story & characters evolve. This book is easy to read and follow. A good series for younger teens to read. Hope you enjoy it too. Happy Reading!!
