[Book Review] Amber the Orange Fairy (Rainbow Magic: Rainbow Fairies, #2) by Daisy Meadows


Fairyland is home to seven colorful sisters. Together, they are the Rainbow Fairies! They keep Fairyland dazzling and bright. But when evil Jack Frost sends them far away, the sisters are in big trouble. If they don't return soon, Fairyland is doomed to be gray forever!

Rachel and Kirsty have already found one Rainbow Fairy, but now Amber the Orange Fairy is trapped in a seashell! Can they rescue her, too?



Amber the Orange Fairy is a marked improvement over Ruby the Red Fairy, the first book in the Rainbow Magic: Rainbow Fairies series. Unlike Ruby, which came across as more of a prologue than an independent story, Amber the Orange Fairy has a more traditional (and satisfying) story structure to it and adds a few extra elements to make the (still rather meager) plot more interesting.

After Kirsty and Rachel find Amber and take her to where Ruby is hiding, the girls are introduced to another new character, a talking frog from Fairyland named Bertram. And he comes bearing a message: another group of fairies--the Cloud Fairies, who I can only assume have their own series later in the massive Rainbow Magic continuity--spotted Jack Frost's goblin henchmen heading to Rainspell Island to stop the girls from rescuing the seven sisters. These new antagonists are only briefly seen in Amber the Orange Fairy, but I expect they'll be returning for the next few books at least.

I'll definitely keep reading the Rainbow Magic series for at least a few more books. Hopefully it will continue to improve.
