The First Adventure

The First Adventure (Feyland #0.5)The First Adventure by Anthea Sharp
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Jennet lives with her video game producing Dad. She's largely on her own as her Dad is often working, but he let's her beta test the games he's working on. Unbeknownst to him, Jennet has his account passwords and is able to access all the games he's working on. Including one that's more than it seems. That game is Feyland.

The First Adventure was largely an introduction to the Feyland world. Jennet stumbled in and doesn't realize Feyland is basically a digital portal into the faerie realm. Since she's a teen it's obvious she gets hooked on the game and sneaks on whenever she has the opportunity.

The story being told isn't one I found compelling. It immediately let's the reader know that Feyland is real despite the fact Jennet doesn't know. There's a lot of implications regarding the world and what's going on, but nothing is explained or explicitly said. Jennet could be any teen as she has no overly distinctive traits other than she's a girl who plays video games and looks down on her peers she seems unworthy of her time.

The First Adventure didn't do enough to make me interested in learning more about the Feyland series.
