Seeing Redd by Frank Beddor

Seeing Redd

Rating: ★★★1/2

Genre: Fantasy, retelling

Medium: Paperback, disc

Synopsis: Alyss Heart has returned to her kingdom and is readjusting to her royal life, after having been in London for so long.  Luckily for her, she has Bibwit Hart, Homburg Molly, Hatter Madigan (on sabbatical), and, of course, Dodge.  While she’s rebuilding a land repairing from Redd’s rule, Redd is plotting her revenge on Earth.  With the help of King Arch from Boarderland, Redd creates a plan that will keep Alyss on her toes.

Review: Normally I’m more of a book person than audiobook person, but after a move and placing a hold at the library, this CD fell into my hands.  But, that wasn’t going to stop me. Let me begin this review by saying that if I’m putting effort into finding my old library card so that I can finish a book I had only half-finished before moving back home after college, it’s a good book.  Don’t let the rating fool you–this series is great.  But, middle books will be middle books.

This book was a ride.  Now that Alyss is being re-introduced to her kingdom, we are also being normal-introduced to the kingdom–and its neighbors.  We discover characters who are thought to be dead, characters who are immoral, and characters unsure if what they’re doing is right. Now that this segment is done, I can’t wait to read what happens next!

(And, on another note–the CD was great!  The reader was super funny and amicable.)
