Although The Fiuri Realms is the fifth book in the Shioni of Sheba series, I found that it can be thoroughly enjoyed without having read any of the prior books because it is a story in itself. In the case of The Fiuri Realms, the main character, Shioni, is transformed from a human into a small fairy-like being called a Fiuri, and almost the entire book describes her adventures in the world of the Fiuri.The author has a wonderful knack for making all kinds of fantastical creatures come to life as they talk, converse and interact with each other, show emotions and reactions in situations of danger, love and friendship so that the reader is transported into this other realm where one’s imagination can run wild. Apart from the excitement of discovery in this fantasy realm, the story has extra interest when Shioni loses her memory shortly after being turned into a Fiuri, and when she is rescued by a group of real Fiuri, she believes she is one of them. Together with her newfound friends, she explores the Fiuri realm in search for answers, and when she does regain her memory, she faces the challenge of rescuing a dear friend who is under the spell of a despot ruler.Reading The Fiuri Realms, I found myself visualizing the vivid colours and images of the different kinds of Fiuri, the landscapes in which they live, the forbidden surface of the planet with turquoise hills and crimson fields, and last but not least, the well-named ‘glue-slap plant whose sticky nectar can trap and debilitate a Fiuri. For me it was like the pleasure of watching a colourful Disney animation movie –the perfect escape from the real world!
Marc has once again enchanted readers with his amazing stories. I have enjoyed everything that i can find from this author as he is always entertaining. I will be waiting impatiently for the next book for this series and any others he writes. You will not be disappointed in any of his books. The man is simply amazing. Five stars isn't enough but its all they allow.
Very well-written, interesting, engaging story in the saga of Shioni of Sheba! Different from the rest of the series set in the creative world of Furiel. One of the better books in an excellent series! Can't wait for the next book!
I really liked the story and how the characters related to the other books in the series, but I hated the ending. Is there going to be another book to tie everything in? If there IS another, I will rate this higher, but if not, I think 3 is a fair rating. Thank you author for putting this in the Kindle Unlimited selections.
