Publisher's Summary

First Place Winner for Young Adult - 2016 Purple Dragonfly Award

Silver Award for Young Adult Mystery - 2016 Readers Favorite

A telepathic dog. An ancient prophecy. Two devious faeries. Abby Fletcher must unravel their connection when she is thrown into a world of unknowns after receiving a mysterious message from a frightening beast: The Red King must set me free. Determined to discover the meaning of this puzzling phrase, Abby sets off to explore a nearby Scottish mountainside in search of clues. What Abby doesn't realize, however, is that it's not a matter of where she will find her answers but when. Whisked back to the early 14th century, Abby must find the courage to solve the mystery of the Red King and save not only herself but a group of powerless captives wrapped up in a faerie plot.

    "A Wonderful Story"

    This is a wonderful book full of great characters that I adored.

    A warm, funny and thrilling story which made me laugh aloud more than once. Listening to it I felt like I was burying my face in Finlay's warm green dog fur! I was genuinely sorry to get to the end of it.

    Abby is a smart, brave and witty heroine but also feels completely real and normal and is easy to imagine being.

    I thought the narration was also really well done and enjoyable, to this admittedly english listener the american and scottish accents sounded great, and all the characters came to life.

    Although this is the first of a trilogy it is also very much a complete story but left with the promise of further adventures. For me that's perfect, I can't wait to hear more and immerse myself again in that world, but I'm also not left frustrated by either a cliff-hanger or an incomplete story. A personal peeve of mine with some other trilogy/series books.

    I heartily recommend this for everyone, not just young adults. In many ways it reminds me of the best teen fantasy I read when I was teenager. Certainly the feelings it evoked reminded me somewhat of the work of the beloved Diana Wynne Jones, whilst different in writing style I think other fans of hers might enjoy this.

    "The Red King Trilogy, Book One"

    A great start to a trilogy that promises to bring a lot more exciting adventures. I really enjoyed this first book and look forward to the other two in this series, The writing is excellent with an exciting storyline for this unique book.

    Joshua Young's narration is wonderful, the voices used are consistent throughout the book. His voice adds to the adventure with the wide variety of voices and emotions used,

    "Phenomenal, award winning story."

    Absolutely loved this story. It has all the excitement a fantasy story should have. I couldn't stop listening after I started, and I'd already read the printed book. If there's a young person in your life, or if you just enjoy fantasy stories, you MUST listen to the captivating voice of Joshua Young. The combined talents of this author and narrator are sure to leave you wanting more. I can't wait for the release of book two.

    "Delightful!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Phantom of Faerie Mountain the most enjoyable?

    The story and the narration weave together seamlessly in this story. The contrast of the ancient Scottish folktale with the modern day heroine, Abby, and the culture clash that ensues when Abby is transported back in time is just delightful.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The heroine, Abby, is a great character but I'm also partial to the dog.


    Which character – as performed by Joshua Young – was your favorite?

    All of them! Mr. Young is a master of accents, I'm still not sure whether he is actually Scottish or American. His accent is very Scottish when he reads the Scottish characters, completely American when he reads the American characters and lightly Scottish when he reads the authors voice. It's absolutely perfect.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved this book! It made me want to share it with every Young Adult I know.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend The Phantom of Faerie Mountain. This would be great for a long family car trip because it has appeal to kids and adults alike.

    Any additional comments?

    Not exactly a new story here, pretty much a generic retread. The story is a condensed version of most modern fantasy books. Girl meets mysterious green dog, dog takes girl back in time as she is the only one who can save him and her long lost mother. Girl meets unassuming warrior. Both unwittingly save the day from mean green faeries. The narrator does a pretty good job with different accents, but his pace is too fast. There's never a pause or break between characters or changes in the story. Not an entirely unpleasant listen, but I've read and/or heard this story before.

    Story
    "A Profile in Courage"

    A telepathic green dog, a pair of evil faeries and a magic sword are just some of the ingredients in the enchanting fantasy world of Faerie Mountain created by E.M. McIntyre.

    Against her will, 13-year old Abby has moved from Nebraska to Scotland with her widowed father and her older sister, Sage, leaving behind the only home she has known. When she encounters a phantom - a glowing, green dog with telepathic powers, Abby is determined to investigate. In a manner reminiscent of Alice following a rabbit into Wonderland, Abby’s search for the meaning of the phantom leads her to stumble into an enchanted world, where she lands - literally - on Rory, a 16-year old orphan.

    Abby and Rory join forces in a mutual aid pact. She promises to help Rory find his father’s sword - stolen from him by a pair of rascals. He, in turn, agrees to help her find the Red King, who, according to prophesy, will overcome the evil faeries and release the green dog from their spell. Both teens show courage and ingenuity in overcoming numerous obstacles. I like that author E.M. McIntyre has drawn Abby as a determined, courageous young adult, a well-matched partner to Rory.

    I read the book a year ago, and found it very enjoyable. To my delight, Joshua Young’s narration was a perfect match to the pace of the novel, and made a good story even better. I am looking forward to reading, and listening to, the second installment in The Red King Trilogy.

    I received a free, no-obligation copy of this audiobook.
