Songs of Thunder is the first book in J.L. Bryan’s Fairy Metal Thunder series. The members of the Assorted Zebras (AWESOME band name by the way) have all the makings of a rockstar without an audience. So if you had the opportunity to steal some magical instruments which could help your band succeed wouldn’t you? Jason does, but little does he know the danger he’s placing himself, his band mates and anyone who comes into contact with his music. There are much more to these instruments than meets the eye.
In this book, mini portals lead from our world to the world of Fairy. Thanks to a little goblin Grizlemor (also really cool name) we find that there are not only doors to the other side, but mini rings of mushrooms that can draw children in by music. J.L. Bryan did a great job of twirling the worlds together in a refreshing way.
Who doesn’t love a bit of innocent, awkward teenage romance? Reminding us how pure we all were when our first loves came along, that’s what Jason’s love for Erin helps us reminisce. Did I mention I really want to know more about what’s going on with this Mrs. Dullihan? Because I do.
