Victor and the Sun Orb

We rated this book:


In Solandia, the land of the fairies, to be a prince is of the highest rank and honor. Nothing should go wrong for him—however, for the celebrated Victor, it does. During his baptism, a spell causing him to turn slowly human is cast. The only way for Victor to prevent himself from becoming fully mortal and eventually having to live in the human world is to retrieve a sun orb. The problem lies in the hands of a mysterious dark figure who has the sun orb in his possession and will not let its extraordinary power go. Victor must find a way to retrieve the orb or else leave the world that he knows, forever.

Amy Nielsen fuses our contemporary world with a fantastical one with fairly few hiccups and a well-paced plot. Moral confliction, betrayal, and its stark opposite loyalty are running themes throughout the adventurous novel. Readers will enjoy the rich descriptions of Nielsen’s mythical land and its endearing characters. She does well in the blurred battle lines of good and evil, setting a well-lit stage for a possible sequel.
