This is a GREAT book! All the different characters, the awesome plot, and the hilarious footnotes, came together to form one of my favorite books! The second one is also amazing:)

The cover and title was what caught my attention. "The Prince of Neither Here Nor There"... Really great title! And the cover was really interesting too! When I read the summary, the mention of a boy being a lost faerie, talking squirrels, and, of course, the usual bad guy trying to control him because of his powers, really got me interested. Then I read the Author's Note... Yep. As soon as I finished reading that, I totally borrowed it out of the library. The story really pulled me in, kept my attention throughout the book. I also LOVE the footnotes, and the humor of the footnotes! I read it all in one day, one sitting. In short, The Prince of Neither Here Nor There is an awesome book. I HIGHLY recommend it. Can't wait to read the second book!

This was an incredible book! It is about a boy named Breanden, a pimply kind of nerdy high school student with braces and glasses. He seems to have a fairly normal life until one day he finds out he is a Faerie! I haven't read the author's Hamish X series, but I hear it is very good. I can't wait for the next book in this series!

First of all, the title and the book cover was what got me insipid. On the book cover there is a pendant that has the name Breandan on it and it is being held by two Faeries. And it’s really shiny. The title told me that the story would be about a person who didn’t really fit in either one world or the other. But I didn’t quite understand the prince part.

I finally understood that the story was about a boy named Brendan (his really name was Breandan, but other people always forgot to write the “a”) who is very clumsy and has really cool friends, especially Kim, and he was born with a peculiar spiral scar on his chest. He was living a very “normal” life when he realises that he was adopted and he is a Faerie who has somehow been shipped to live with humans. He has this weird dream and a scary lady claiming to be his aunt is chasing him for his Faerie abilities. But the only way for him to control his abilities, is if he leaves his human family for the Faeries. And he is not sure.

I really enjoyed how the story introduces a new world that has been totalled isolated and hidden under our noses. It is a world of different magical creatures such as, silkies, trolls, dwarves, and Faeries. And it takes place in Toronto (yes, a Canadian city).

Even this novel is for ages 11 and up, I think it is a great read for teens as well.

And the author is a comedian..., but I’ve never heard of him.

The Prince of Neither Here nor There is the first novel in The Chronicles of the Misplaced Prince Series. And I can’t wait to read more!

Aug 18, 2011

After a bad game of Murderball, things started to go strange for Brendan. He starts hearing things, talking to squirrels, seeing things more clearly (without the help of his glasses), and his friend Kim was talking to the new substitute teacher, Mr. Greenleaf, about him. When he goes to a concert, where Deidre D'Anaan sang of a Misplaced Prince, he felt a connection. After a dream, when his Ward was stripped away, his evil Faerie aunt Orcadia started chasing him, wanting him at her side, or if not, dead. He and his friend Kim, who was a Faerie assigned to protect him, led him to The Swan of Liir, where he learned of his Faerie roots. To protect himself against Orcadia, he must find his stolentoken (in his case, amulet) to be initiated into the Faerie World and control his powers.
