A year after finding out she has magical powers beyond her imagination, Lola finds herself on the beautiful East Coast of Australia in Byron Bay, where she has been accepted into Protector Fairy Training Camp. She and her best friends Allie and Jet enjoy learning to surf, making new friends, and working closely with Katia, the Queen of the Water Fairies.
Lola is excited to be one step closer to becoming a world-famous adventurer, protecting the earth like she has always dreamed of.
However, her new home is threatened when a dark force wreaks havoc in the ocean, striking down countless sea animals with a mysterious illness. When tragedy strikes and a beautiful young dolphin dies, Lola is determined to uncover the truth. She learns of a Water Fairy legend about an Ocean Monster that wants to destroy human life if the oceans aren’t respected and cared for.
Lola needs to separate myth from truth. She is beset by disturbing nightmares and bolstered by an instinct telling her that there has to be more going on than she knows. Will the adventurous Lola be able to unravel the Ocean Monster mystery and save the day once again?
I received a copy of The Adventures of Lola and the Ocean Monster from the Author for review consideration. This has in no way influenced my opinion of this book.
Lola is a fairy who goes to protector school and discovers there is a monster killing sea creatures. She investigates the mystery to put an end to the deaths. Like the first book in this series, the Main Issues I had with this were the missing Punctuation and run-on Sentences, but I found that it wasn’t as bad in this one. Some of the issues I had with the first book were fixed and I found that I enjoyed this one more.
That might have been more so because the themes in this book were more up my alley, with the Ocean and Sea Creatures and Everything. I won’t leave any spoilers but Lola’s journey in this book is set in a new and enchanting landscape which is utterly immersive.
Even though, I’m not the target audience, I still enjoyed this book and I enjoyed the illustrations in the book. Overall, The story was imaginative, fun, and magical. And again, The illustrations are fantastic. Lola is a bold, fun and inspiring heroine for the younger generation.
That’s it for this review! Have you read this? If so, What did you think of it? Is it on your TBR? Tell me in the comments if you agree or disagree with any of this. I’d love to know your opinion.
