    Fantastical, madcap, non stop adventures greeted Peter after climbing through the clock portal in Mrs Kipple s shop Strange, whimsical, beautiful, dangerous and evil creatures such as fairies, elves, shylongs, dragons, pineapple eating bugs, witches and many filled this dark but enjoyable fairy tale Mr O Brien certainly created a memorable, magical world for Peter to explore on his tenth birthday This is a book that can be enjoyed by both adults and children.

    I discovered from the author notes that William O Brien resides in a small English village the fertile inspiration of some of the land s most imaginative writers, Emily Bront , Lewis Carroll, Daphne du Maurier, the list is endless, as are the misty, dark tales they have spun.In this tradition, we find the eponymous Peter from a Darkened Fairytale on his tenth birthday cast into a purple forest searching for a friend and finding himself in the company of an intriguing cast of magical characters i [...]

    Wow Fantastical Fun.This is a very creative, wish it would never end kind of story The author has created a remarkable character in Peter, not to mention, Slip the elf, Arnica, Hally, Mrs Kipple, Wind Sail, Mr Twindle Twoondle, etc Perhaps even impressive is how he created a bizarre and whacky world, it s as if the book was written through a kaleidoscope Well written and imaginative you ll have a great time

    James Ross

    A twist on talesThis cute, quick read is very different to say the least There was a comfort to it however Not just in the creatures, but in the story I felt like I was in a new aged Alice in Wonderland It was a bit jumpy I still found it easy to follow, but I had hoped for a bit But for a short story, that is the usual only complaint right At least as far as the ones that I have read goes The aroma you are enquiring upon is me, and you get used to it after a while, he said, wiping a stale chic [...]

    This book has everything You start from a Harry Potter esque child suddenly whisked into a fantasy world story, but from there it just grows in leaps and bounds I loved the fact that all the characters are rich and real no matter how fantastical, they seem like living, breathing characters The main character Peter reminds me in some ways of the South Park boys in that he shows childhood naivete and extreme intelligence in equal bursts, making the story thoroughly readable and enjoyable.The subti [...]

    The first thing that caught my attention was the character of Peter His inner world was rich, and he was different than most children in his age In that curiosity the author managed to attract me to the storyline There was something in the reality of order that is in the environment of Peter s surroundings that made Peter all the dreamier and recluse As a reader I sought the spiritual world with him from the very first mention of his peculiarity As the storyline evolves Peter enters the dreamy w [...]

    While reading Peter A Darkened Fairytale I felt I was inside a turbulent nightmare within a maze The pace of the narration quickens in a fashion similar to the changing of gears in a sports car Every chapter is accompanied by lots of curves and gears shifting forward, merciless accelerating words and sentences The book starts like that same sports car parked, still, almost motionless, but soon it begins to move and it will not stop until the end The chapters speed up and, even when introducing n [...]

    Peter is an average boy until he arrives in a land of fantasy He enters a magical world where adventure and many surprises await This story reminds me of Alice in Wonderland, only with some darker elements This land, however, is quite unique, and Peter s adventures kept me guessing throughout the story.There are many unique and unexpected characters within these pages My personal favorite was Hally, who had me laughing aloud as I read In fact, for over half of this story, I was reading with a si [...]
