First Place Winner for Young Adult - 2016 Purple Dragonfly Award

Silver Award for Young Adult Mystery - 2016 Readers Favorite

A telepathic dog. An ancient prophecy. Two devious faeries. Abby Fletcher must unravel their connection when she is thrown into a world of unknowns after receiving a mysterious message from a frightening beast: The Red King must set me free. Determined to discover the meaning of this puzzling phrase, Abby sets off to explore a nearby Scottish mountainside in search of clues. What Abby doesn't realize, however, is that it's not a matter of where she will find her answers but when. Whisked back to the early 14th century, Abby must find the courage to solve the mystery of the Red King and save not only herself but a group of powerless captives wrapped up in a faerie plot.

Any additional comments?

This is a fun story with a fantasy plot. Some evil is at work, and a special girl from our time is transported to the past to fix things. It is enjoyable, especially for younger readers.

The Red King Trilogy, Book One

A great start to a trilogy that promises to bring a lot more exciting adventures. I really enjoyed this first book and look forward to the other two in this series, The writing is excellent with an exciting storyline for this unique book.

Joshua Young's narration is wonderful, the voices used are consistent throughout the book. His voice adds to the adventure with the wide variety of voices and emotions used,

It's been done before

Any additional comments?

Not exactly a new story here, pretty much a generic retread. The story is a condensed version of most modern fantasy books. Girl meets mysterious green dog, dog takes girl back in time as she is the only one who can save him and her long lost mother. Girl meets unassuming warrior. Both unwittingly save the day from mean green faeries. The narrator does a pretty good job with different accents, but his pace is too fast. There's never a pause or break between characters or changes in the story. Not an entirely unpleasant listen, but I've read and/or heard this story before.

Phenomenal, award winning story.

Absolutely loved this story. It has all the excitement a fantasy story should have. I couldn't stop listening after I started, and I'd already read the printed book. If there's a young person in your life, or if you just enjoy fantasy stories, you MUST listen to the captivating voice of Joshua Young. The combined talents of this author and narrator are sure to leave you wanting more. I can't wait for the release of book two.

I enjoyed the fantasy fae writing and the narration

Which character – as performed by Joshua Young – was your favorite?

Any additional comments?

I received this book for an honest review. While I usually enjoy more "adult" written books, I'm interested in all things Faerie and Sidhe, so I just had to try it. It was very well written and narrated and would be a great listen for a family or younger audience.

Keeps you guessing until the end.

Any additional comments?

Well written and interesting, with humor and an imaginative story. The audio version was very helpful to me, because of some vision problems, and the various accents add the "flavor" of Scotland. To sum it all up, I just plain liked it!

Time-slip Fantasy

Would you try another book from EM McIntyre and/or Joshua Young?

Maybe. This was more appropriate for younger readers than I was expecting. I would consider it middle grade fiction rather than YA. The main character is about 14, but the writing is a simpler style than most books targeted at readers that age.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The story was read very quickly. While the action is fast-paced, the narrator could have slowed down a bit.

Any additional comments?

This is a unique genre, sort of a time-slip, fantasy, adventure that I would say is appropriate, and would probably be more captivating for, an audience of about 9-12 years old. I believe that readers that age would be eager for the next adventure in the series.

A Wonderful Story

This is a wonderful book full of great characters that I adored.

A warm, funny and thrilling story which made me laugh aloud more than once. Listening to it I felt like I was burying my face in Finlay's warm green dog fur! I was genuinely sorry to get to the end of it.

Abby is a smart, brave and witty heroine but also feels completely real and normal and is easy to imagine being.

I thought the narration was also really well done and enjoyable, to this admittedly english listener the american and scottish accents sounded great, and all the characters came to life.

Although this is the first of a trilogy it is also very much a complete story but left with the promise of further adventures. For me that's perfect, I can't wait to hear more and immerse myself again in that world, but I'm also not left frustrated by either a cliff-hanger or an incomplete story. A personal peeve of mine with some other trilogy/series books.

I heartily recommend this for everyone, not just young adults. In many ways it reminds me of the best teen fantasy I read when I was teenager. Certainly the feelings it evoked reminded me somewhat of the work of the beloved Diana Wynne Jones, whilst different in writing style I think other fans of hers might enjoy this.
