If I were to reduce this review to one word it would be disappointing The comparison to Narnia doesn t go any farther than an alternate world where animals speak with English accents Otherwise it s not a book I would recommend for three reasons First I found this book on a list of Christian Fantasy titles It is not There is no allegorical theme and the characters don t follow Christian principles except by accident they support their son going to live with his girlfriend for example There is also uite a bit of profanity including an F bombSecond while I agree with a lot of the social and political commentary it feels forced and out of place The book feels like part fairy tale and part soapbox vent Third it s not very well written A few uick examples the shifts to and from Albion are at times unclear I had to go back and re read several transitions Most of the modern events are largely superfluous The animal names Freddy Falcon Boris Beaver Wendel Weasel might be cute in a book for beginning readers but seem juvenile in a adult oriented book The deeper magic is not explained and is invoked at the end as deus ex machina So where Narnia is delightful wholesome and tightly written this effort is not I almost never write negative reviews but would have appreciated seeing one like this before I spent my money

An original take on the Narnia books Albion being the sort of parallel make believe realm we d all like to escape into On the surface a fantasy but so much than that I approached this as an adult reader athough the blurb says it can be enjoyed by children over 12 and it will undoubtedly appeal to Harry Potter fans due to the magical seuences However much of the irony and wry wit is likely to be missed by younger readers The satirical undertones make it essential reading for anyone interested in what s going on in Britain This book probably merits some kind of discussion group as it s provocative and challenging A solid book club candidate
