The Fairies' Path (Fate: The Winx Saga Tie-In Novel) - Ava Corrigan Review


Don't miss this bold new reinvention of the classic animated Winx Club series! This is the first YA novel based on the new NETFLIX series Fate: The Winx Saga. It is a retelling of the first season packed with bonus scenes and character backstory not seen on the show.

At the Alfea International School, students come from all over the Otherworld to train. To learn magic. To discover how to control their powers. Inside the school's castle, five students-complete strangers-are assigned as roommates:

Aisha is an athlete and a classic overachiever whose control over water is the envy of her fellow students.

Terra is an awkward do-gooder whose power over the natural world can overwhelm rivals unexpectedly.

Musa is an introvert who keeps to herself so her mind isn't overwhelmed by the emotions of those around her.

Stella is a princess - yes, a real princess - whose command over light inspires but also intimidates.

And then there's Bloom, the outsider, the girl from the human world whose power over fire almost destroyed her family.

These five teenagers want what every teenager wants . . . to figure out who they are. To make friends. To fit in at their new school. But when an ancient, long-vanquished evil suddenly resurfaces outside the castle walls, these five teenagers be forced to put their powers to the test. And they'll discover a secret so powerful, it will challenge everything they know about the Otherworld . . . and themselves.

I love this netflix-series so much! I couldn't wait to start this book. My expectations were very high for this one, since there's a netflix series. So it must be good right?

Well, I must admit that I was so dissapointed in this book. I did not get the vibes I got while watching the tv-series. I read this book almost a year after watching the first season (and yes my brain are mashed patatoes so I didn't remember much of it), and it was hard for me to follow sometimes. There were moments that I had no clue what was going on. There were so many time-gasps that didn't make sense in the story. One moment Stella and Bloom can't stand each other, and the other moment Stella gives her portalring to Bloom so she could go home. Like? What happened? They suddenly became friends? Only moments later Stella is telling she can't stand the new one?

This did not make any sense to me and the time-gasps were really annoying me. I really had to push myself to read on, when I kind of wanted to DNF it.

I'm scared to read the second book.
