Inside the game...

Jennet Carter escaped the dark faeries of Feyland once. Now, fey magic is seeping out of the prototype game, beguiling the unwary and threatening everyone she cares about.


Tam Linn may be a hero in-game, but his real life is severely complicated. Still, he'll do whatever it takes to stop the creatures of Feyland, even if it means pushing Jennet tow

With this novel, Sharp jumps right back into the awesome world of Feyland and takes you with her. She completely immerses her reader in the world of gaming and in the land of the Fey. The distinct socioeconomic backgrounds in this story really add to the feeling of the story. It helps to develop the feeling of helplessness and of crossing boundaries. There is also lots of action in this instalment that keeps you on edge and ploughing forward.

Sharp`s phenomenal storytelling skills and brilliant

You know you've found a good writer when you can start a series in the middle (the second book) and not be lost to the story or characters but pick them up seamlessly. You know you've found a -great- writer when you finish that book and want to go back and read the book before and are now eagerly waiting the book after. Many thanks to Anthea Sharp for such skillful writing! Much enjoyed this book and looking forward to the other two!

The Bright Court takes off right where The Dark Realm left off. Jennet and Tam continue to look for a way to stop the prototype of Feyland to be released out in the world. Here's the problem though...what if the company owner's son is playing it and doesn't seem to be having any problems playing the game?

Well that's what happened when Roy Lassiter comes to join Tam and Jennet at their high school. And according to Jennet's father, who is in charge of Feyland's production, Roy has been playing t

[Full disclosure: I received a free ebook copy of this book from Anthea Sharp in exchange for an honest review.]

Since Feyland: The Dark Realm was almost a futuristic retelling of the ballad of Tam Linn, I really had no idea where Anthea Sharp would go from there. Would book 2 in the Feyland trilogy just drag on and on pointlessly and focus on the romance between Tam and Jennet? Or would she completely change the fairytale underpinnings of the story and go for a pure technological thriller?

GAME ON!!! 5 Stars

Overall I loved this series! I can’t wait to read the next ones as well! (NOTE: this review is based on the box set Feyland: The Complete Trilogy) At first I was a little disappointed with the first book – The Dark Realm - because I was expecting a lot more magic and fae stuff. It was still good, just different than how I thought it would be! Which is one reason why I try to not form an opinion of how I expect the book to be before I read it. That being said, I read the book fa

What I really love is the balance between fantasy and reality. The reality is set in a future year- obvious through the immense technology. The fantasy is set in Feyland- a mixture of the Dark and Bright Courts, filled with these amazing creatures. These two worlds collide thanks to a video game based off a book of legends. Set in a futuristic time period, it was great that the author created new words and abbreviations, because really, doesn’t the human language evolve all the time? (I mean, c ...more

The Bright Court starts out right where the first book ended. Tam is now out of the hospital, but still not in the best shape and Jennet’s hands bear the scars of her last Feyland encounter. Their friendship is still strong, but the romance between the two wavers – mostly because of Tam’s insecurities. Jennet on the other hand, knows she wants Tam and tells him just that. I love a strong female character that doesn’t need to wait for the guy to make the first move.

Just as in the first book, the

I have something terrible and shocking to confess. Don't freak out - but I don't really like YA as a whole. It has a tendency to be juvenile (I shouldn't be surprised by this, should I), consumed by relationships (like anyone really knows what they want at 16), and kind of generic (I wish people would stop re-writing Twilight with different supernatural creatures). Luckily, some authors, like Maggie Stiefvater, Holly Black, Rachel Vincent, and a few others, manage to step outside the usual trend ...more

Anthea Sharp has done it again!

Taking place right after the event of the first book Tam and Jennet have come to realize the fight is not over, and that it may have already step into the real world.

When a new boy has join Crestview high and has a odd air to him, almost Fae like. Every girl but Jennet sames to be falling head over heels for him both Tam and Jennet think something is not right, that maybe they are not the only ones that have stepped into Feyland.

Okay. I really liked the first book in this series, Feyland: The Dark Realm, but this one, I loved, loved loved. Did I say I loved it? This is the continuation of the adventures of Jennet and Tam as they try to stem the tide of the faerie realm from encroaching upon and eventually invading our world. The trouble is that Feyland is a video game, and Jennet and Tam cannot convince anyone in power that the faerie realm depicted in the game is real. The efforts of the Dark Queen were frustrated in t ...more

Wow. Just---wow.

I loved the first book, and as much as I was looking forward to this one, I was a little concerned that I'd be let down. (It happens a lot with second books. I didn't need to worry. The Bright Court reminded me how much I loved The Dark Realm.

There's no need to say how happy I was to see Tam again. He's one of the best book characters I've ever read.

If there's anything that could have made this book even better, it would have been just a little bit more happening within the Feyla

Feyland The Bright Court by Anthea Sharp
Love this book as it's about a sim game. We used to play one that was being run locally and it was a blast. You'd walk around and do certain things
and magic and fighting played a big part of the game. In this story Tam had helped her when the Dark Queen almost killed her-she, Jennet has the scars to prove it
and he's just recently out of the hospital. Roy and his CEO mother have come to town and he's got a chip implanted as he's one of the viewers-can see i

Wow. Having read Feyland: The Dark Realm, I was pulled right back into the story with this sequel, although I believe it would make sense to anyone who hadn’t read the first book in this series first. This young adult book really speaks to all ages, from pre-teen on up.

Jennet and Tam Linn are the only ones who can keep an immersive video game from opening the crack between their world and the Realm of Faerie. Their world feels slightly futuristic and has a realistic approach to the peer issues

'Feyland: The Bright Court' is the second book in the Feyland trilogy, a series that combines sci-fi with the paranormal when a virtual reality game becomes a doorway to the land of fairies.

I liked the introduction of the bright court in this book and the story was still strong and held my attention throughout. I found Tam a bit less believable in this book. He came across too perfect which was disappointing as he seemed flawed in the beginning. This was obviously for the purpose of the romantic

It was great! However, I think that the first book was better than this one. The plot was interesting and I like how each book so far has centered on a different kingdom in Feyland ( Dark Court was the first realm and now its the Bright Court in this plot). Tam has been one of my favorite characters in this series because he is an amazing character and cares for Jennet ( at least so far there isn't a love triangle) and their relationship isn't fast paced ( i.e its more realistic then some relati ...more

Again another adventure into Feyland. This time you get to see the other court. There is even another new character involved in the video game fairy realm. Recommend reading book one before this one cause this is a series and there is a lot in book one you need to know before this book. Otherwise you might think Jennet and Tam are a little crazy. It also explains their relationship further. Another good story and quick read.

Book 2 in the Feyland series, and I'm still just as enamoured with this series as I was after finishing Book 1! There's just something about the idea of a video game being REAL that is intriguing and scary and maybe hits a little close to home. How far away are we from a reality like that, anyway?
Our heroes Tam and Jennet are at it again...still trying to keep the fey from inhabiting our world, and still fighting the attraction that they have for one another. The characters are likable and rela

Adorable! Anybody 12 and over can read this no worries. I like the video game tie in to the fairie realm. It is a fun twist. The adults in this remind me of Charlie Brown adults - wah wah wah wah wah wah- they don't really have a place in story except to complicate things for the characters. Great gateway series to start out with fey lore. Not too much, too dark, too far out there. Not as funny as the ruby blue series. but, From here u can graduate to the dark fairie tales series, or otherworlds ...more

This is almost a carbon copy of the first novel in the trilogy with white swapped for black, and even though I only read one book in between the 1st and 2nd books I still enjoyed it. It just rolls really easily along. The characters are simple they are either good or evil, the usual archetypal stuff of fantasy for the YA. It is not overly love oriented so that is a big tick in its favor, again given the genre. One more to go and I'm sure that I'll enjoy it too. Anthea Sharp has a flowing style o ...more

Excellent continuation of the saga that began with the Night Court. We get to meet some new characters and explore new facets of the ones we knew before. Things are coming to a head, plot-wise, though to some extent there's a touch of "middle book lull" about it, perhaps because the King of the Bright Court never felt as adversarial as the Dark Queen of the first book. Thankfully I purchased this as part of a set, so I went right on to the heavily-foreshadowed Twilight Court.

A magical adventure where gaming takes on a whole light when you are fighting for your life. I really enjoyed this story and each book flowed into the next one and the storyline was engaging. I am so looking forward to reading the last book, will she make it out alive and who will be left standing at the end.

I'm reading all 3 books as one on my Kindle, so the lines between each book blur slightly.

I love the sci-fi plus traditional fantasy combo here. This story is fun, maybe spreading it across 3 books is slightly much (there were a couple slower points), but the characters are totally likable and are keeping me invested.

I liked this one more than the first of the trilogy. Somehow, world building seemed more defined, and fae personality traits aswell. I learned a lot of new stuff about faerie folk and the way they think and act.
I enjoyed the book and the characters, I liked that Marny had more weight in the story although she seemed to be glamorized most of the time. I loved discovering how the relationship between Jennet and Tam was slowly developing. It was presented in a different angle than most of the YA bo

So to continue where I left off after the first book review…this one went down one tiny notch for me..couldn't even really tell you why. I think it was the obvious bully character of the new Viewie…but even the battles in the Feyland were a tad obvious to me as well…some little bit of magic was dampened in this book for me. The budding romance seemed normal, the new stuff entering the ideas of how they were going to deal with the problems of the Feyland…even though it held my interest, it was ju ...more

Great book! Grabbed me right from the start. Can't wait to read book #3. It was very similar to the Disney after Dark series... But better put together. More believable.
