The Fandom Review

The Fandom is so much fun to read. I’ve always thought being propelled headfirst into one of my favourite worlds would be amazing, but the reality is that it would probably be terrifying too.

This is a brilliant story told in such a unique way, combining elements of contemporary, dystopian and fantasy and throwing in some wonderful characters. I wish we’d been able to get to know Katie and Alice a bit better, but Violet, Nate, Ash and Thorn were fantastically written.

The whole way through, I worried that it was “all a dream,” but the way it was handled was so brilliant I shouldn’t have worried at all. The ending is somewhat open, leaving my imagination to do some of the work, but it’s completely satisfying nonetheless and I loved it.

My rating

**** 4/5 stars
