This is a really cute series. I could so see everything Mr. Bryan describes. It is enchanting and captivating. There is every type of creature you can imagine. The words used to describe days of the week are even enchanting... Moonday, Fryday, Someday, etc. I mean; how cute is that!!

Jason and Erin are a couple but are focused on doing what this contract of theirs tell them to do. Their band is pulled all over the world. You would think they would be happy about it. But it is not happy. They are worked hard and have no time to do anything fun at all. Erin is told to model and do commercials for these old parachutes that are made into pants that smell of old stuff no matter how much they are washed. Disgusting, I would have broken my contract right then. But Erin does what she is told. They are working so hard and don’t even know how much money they are making. Hmmm....

Meanwhile in the fairy world, Aoide and her band are struggling to find work. I love this world because everything is silly and cute and captivating. In Fairie, they are getting magic mirrors that broadcast shows and music. They are all silly versions of our soap operas and silly musical songs. I loved it! Suddenly, they have a contract to sing on these magical mirrors that show in every home with one. Their contracts may not be what they think. Hmmm...

Suddenly in both worlds everything goes amiss and sadness ensues. After all, they are still instruments that need to be returned and always good vs. evil to contend with. I don’t want to say much more because you really have to read it to experience this world of J. L. Bryan. You won’t regret it.
