The Oddmire, Book 2: The Unready Queen
The Unready Queen is an amazing book about a group of friends trying to protect the Wild Wood. It is the second book in a series, and although I haven’t read the first book, I really enjoyed this one. Fable is the daughter of Reina, the Queen of the Deep Dark. Her mother wants her to prepare for life as a queen, but she would rather spend time with her friends in the human town of Endsborough. Her friends, the human and goblin brothers Cole and Tinn, are trying to return to their normal lives. However, a newcomer disturbs the peace between the people of Endsborough and the creatures of the Wild Wood. The friends must stop the fighting before it becomes an all-out war. One of my favorite things about this book was that it seemed to be set in the 1800s, but it is also a fantasy story, with many mythical creatures. It was a fun read that made me laugh, and also kept my interest. I would recommend this book to kids in middle school, and to kids who like fantasy stories.
