Overview

A rock & roll fairy tale.

Jason plays guitar in a teenage garage band called the Assorted Zebras, but they have no fans, no gigs, and they're going nowhere. Even worse, Jason has a crush on their lead singer, but she doesn't seem interested in him at all.

Then Jason steals instruments from the fairy world. Soon the band is enchanting crowds, and Jason is a step closer to the girl of his dreams, but the new gear is brimming with dangerous and destructive magic they can't control.

Their shortcut to success has cost a troupe of innocent fairies their livelihood and turned Jason and his band into enemies of the powerful Queen Mab, who sends hunters to track them down, including one of the most dangerous creatures in Faerie...a small unicorn named Buttercake. (from Barnes and Nobles)

I'm on the fence with this book I'm really not sure if I like it or not! I'm going to have to read book 2 in the series before I decide I think! 

There are somethings that I really enjoyed however. I loved the variety of Fae Folk in the book and that you got to travel between worlds. However I'm not sure how much substance the book actually has. 

I also loved that in this book something as sweet and pure as a unicorn isn't what it seems to be! There is a lot of that in this book things aren't what they seem to be. I personally advice you to check this book out and make your own decisions; or be like me undecided! 

I don't think being undecided is a bad thing that just means you aren't jumping to conclusions you are just giving it more of an opportunity to wow you!
