Liberty Frye and the Sails of Fate by: J.L. McCreedy


BeachBoundbooks is pleased to be coordinating a Review Tour for the middle grade fantasy Liberty Frye and the Sails of Fate by J.L. McCreedy from April 20 - May 12, 2016.

About the Book


Title: Liberty Frye and the Sails of Fate (Book 2)
Author: J.L. McCreedy
Genre:  Middle Grade Fantasy
Number of Pages: 260
Synopsis: When Liberty Frye wakes up on her eleventh birthday, nothing about it feels particularly celebratory. As if being a witch in training isn’t confusing enough, her mother’s mysterious illness has grown worse overnight and her best-friend-turned-foster-sister Ginny is driving her crazy.
Then there’s the matter of Uncle Frank’s new invention that he has brought to her surprise party. When Libby’s freaky powers accidentally activate it, she and her unsuspecting birthday party guests are transported into an ocean of darkness. Literally. Soon, they’re running – or rather, sailing – for their lives, chasing after clues while dodging angry islanders and makeshift spells gone awry.

To save herself and everyone she cares about, Libby knows she must confront the dark forces bent on determining their fate. But what she doesn’t know is … how?



I didn't read book one, but book 2 was an excellent adventure that middle aged youngsters are bound to enjoy.  If you don't read book 1 it doesn't matter as they are totally different adventures so you won't miss anything.  Of course the main character is the same and a few others are from book 1, so I'm told.  But it is a whole different story.  I like books like this as you don't have to read them in order to keep up with the plot.  Kids that love adventure and mystery are bound to love Liberty Frye adventures.  It'll keep you on your toes and wanting to keep turning the pages to see what will happen next.  You won't want to miss experiencing the journey with Liberty.  It's fun and engaging.  
Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen (Book 1)

The average ten-year-old girl seldom travels far from home. She doesn’t worry about being kidnapped by witches or imprisoned in medieval castles where children are ensnared to meet their unspeakable demise. She rarely gives thought to curses, potions and magic. She certainly isn’t concerned about risking life and limb to decipher ancient rites and lost treasures....

But Liberty Frye is about to discover that she is not just your average girl.


When a cryptic note from long-lost relatives arrives, the news it brings flips Libby’s small-town existence upside down. Soon, she finds herself lured to a foreign land where retired witches, talking bats and geriatric World War II pilots await. It’s up to Libby to unravel the sinister plot that brought her there in the first place, but in so doing, she’ll uncover a shocking secret that will change her life forever ... if she survives the challenge.

**Liberty Frye and the Witches of Hessen is free through Kindle Unlimited.
