***Red Moon Rising is the re-release of The Crystal Mirror (part of the Faerie Tribes series). The 3rd book in the series will be out Spring '16.

Laney Rivers thinks she’s just an ordinary schoolgirl, how wrong she is! On the first night of the school summer holidays, which happens to be her twelfth birthday, she discovers that she’s really a faerie. Nor is she the only faerie in her village: her dad, her neighbours, some of her school friends – and enemies – are faeries too. As a faerie Laney can fly, and she can talk to animals, the world looks much more interesting too, but not all is well: can Laney and her friends stop an evil Shadow Faerie who wants to rule all the faerie tribes? Laney’s adventures are perfect for young readers who secretly dream of having magical powers, and it’s also a lovely story of friendship. ~ Andrea Reece

Kirsty from Nosy Crow says: “Paula has created a thoroughly believable world with great characters. These books are action-packed and exciting, but remain rooted in those all-important issues of friendship and identity that kids of this age love to read about. And imagine suddenly finding that you could fly!”

  • Sam Harper, age 11 - 'An exceptional book with a brilliant storyline and extraordinary characters. I knew immediately that I was going to love it and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next in the series.'
  • Chloe Pickering, age 11 - 'I enjoyed this book. It is full of magic and faeries but it is not sickly sweet. It gives a different edge to the expected view of faeries. They live in tribes and face dangers of dark magic.'
  • Isabel McKinnon, age 9 - 'As soon as I read the first pages the book sucked me in!'
  • Evie Brooks, age 10 - 'I would give this a five star rating because the book hooked me in and dragged me through the story.'
  • Beth Urquhart, age 8 - 'It is an extremely enjoyable book, but is a bit scary. I think girls who enjoyed the rainbow magic series, at a younger age, but were now older would like it.'
  • Holly Wilkins, age 11 - 'Magical, mysterious and mesmerising.'
  • Emma Moulton, Yr 7 Great Torrington School -  'This is a very interesting book if you like magical stories with lots of suspense!'
  • Hannah Baer, age 11 - 'the detail and excitement of the book is truly amazing.'
  • Ieva Galinauskaite, age 14 - 'I really loved reading this book and finding out Laney’s secret and her secret power. I would recommend this book to a friend.  I enjoyed reading Laney’s journey and learning more about her life.'
  • Year 5 Book Group, Baring Primary School - 'A mystical page turner of a book.  I couldn’t put it down once I started it.'
  • Jasmine Harris-Hart, age 13 - 'A magical fast paced adventure about fairies and friendship.'
  • Cora Willans - 'I LOVE THIS BOOK.'

About Paula Harrison

Paula Harrison began inventing stories and writing them down as a child. One of her best was about a magical land inhabited by talking bookworms. After taking an English degree, she became a primary school teacher and is now married with two children.

Over the years, she's shared many different authors' books with children, and now she can't wait to share her own. Paula says: “The beginnings of the idea for ...
