Tails, Book One, Silver Wishes Series.
Review Tails by Red Headed Book Lover
Tails has to be one of the most adorable, incredible and entertaining middle-grade novels I have ever come across. As a mother who is keen on sharing astonishing books with fellow parents for their children, I am always on the lookout for the next best, upcoming read and it is safe to write book lovers that Tails is that read! Tails is an astounding, thrilling, action-packed adventure novel that will have your children entertained for many hours thanks to its host of fascinating beings such as wizards, fairies and many more mythical creatures that will alight not only young readers’ minds but adults as well!
Tails follows the protagonist of the story Kywah, a silvertail who has been blessed with magical powers that lie within his tail. One day, during a hunting season Kywah was kidnapped, and his tail was cut off. Kywah was devastated, his tail was not only a part of him physically but also emotionally because it is a sense of pride and it holds his powers which he loved. Although Kywah was lucky to survive, he is broken and not feeling himself. One day he notices that the hunters have returned and it is safe to say that Kywah is terrified but despite this, he starts to uncover the plot of why his tail was taken from him and for whom. The reader will follow Kywah on his journey across a magical land to uncover the truth, and the result is an intriguing fantasy tale that is full of poignancy and delight!
The story of Tails is an outstanding one that is full of a host of poignant themes and messages courtesy of the exceptional author WJ Scott. WJ Scott explores many topics and themes throughout her book, themes such as friendship, commitment, courage and even disabilities are explored, and all of these topics are entirely weaved together by Scott to compliment the story. The story of Tails is a rich, vivid, and impeccable one that will surely captivate young minds with its vivid descriptions and engaging characters. The story is one that I adore for many reasons but the reason I love this book the most… besides the incredible literature courtesy of WJ Scot! Is the fact that poignant themes (such as the ones I briefly discussed) are laced throughout the book I admire that Scott has so flawlessly laced these profound themes throughout Tails as it will encourage readers to think about such topics and hopefully inspire young readers to be kind and be strong, no matter your circumstances. I personally love when a children’s book has poignant themes as they can change the way young readers think and inspire them to act in a certain, positive way and so I really do admire WJ Scott for including this in her extraordinary tale!
WJ Scott is not only an excellent writer for the themes she explores throughout her story, but she is also brilliant thanks to her stunning literature. The vivid descriptions courtesy of Scott are beautiful and will dazzle and captivate young minds; the descriptions, especially of the magical creatures the reader encounters in this book are magnificent and will have young readers thinking vividly, and this is a hard talent to accomplish with a children’s book.
Overall tails is an engaging, entertaining, adventure-filled novel that will take readers on a memorable and inspiring journey and so I have no choice but to award this stunning book a dazzling five stars!
