Item description for Reggie & Ryssa and the Summer Camp of Faery by Bo Savino...
What would you do if you found out magic was real and Faeries co-existed with the human world, beyond your vision but within your reach? Better yet, what if you had once been a part of that world without knowing it, and now they wanted you back? On their thirteenth birthday, Reggie & Ryssa's world is turned upside down. As a part of the conditions for their foster placement, the twins are now required to start attending yearly summer camp. Worse, they have to spend time with relatives who hadn't wanted them in the first place. Instead of finding answers about who they are, Reggie & Ryssa keep finding more questions. Are they the twins of darkness and light foretold by prophecy? What is causing the Wilt that is eating away at the magical barrier that separates Faery from the world of mortals? Who is responsible for the deaths and disappearances of the potentials, dwindling the numbers who could save Faery? Of course they find your average, everyday magic wands, talking books and Brownies that you never see, but always get your household chores done for you. But what is that compared to doom and gloom prophecies, disappearing Team members and dark magic attacks? It's an adventure-filled summer in the World of Faery!

Reviews - What do customers think about Reggie & Ryssa and the Summer Camp of Faery?
Love the use of magic in Reggie & Ryssa! Mar 6, 2008
The way that Bo Savino describes and portrays the use of magic in this novel is a stroke of genius and allows for incredible description! I also enjoyed the way the author incorporated the hurricane season into the plot. It was surprising and not overdone in the least. There are many factors testing the continued existence of Faery-kind throughout the book. It will be very interesting to see if and how the twins, Reggie & Ryssa, do in future books to save or yes, even doom the Faery.
This is a wonderful fantasy book that is based in the modern era. Yes, it appeals to the Harry Potter enthusiast (as stated by the other reviews here), but it is also enjoyable to occasional fantasy readers. I typically read historical fiction and scifi and I have always had a soft spot for scifi juvenile fiction. Reggie & Ryssa is well-written and completely connectible whether you are an adult reader like me, or a teen reader.

Harry Potter has just been one-upped. Aug 1, 2006
Just when the Potter books were getting to dark for me, here comes a breath of fresh air in the fantasy world of Faery. As the other reviewers stated above, I also caught the, "I can't put the book down" bug. Having lived in Florida since the late 50's and weathered many storms; Bo Savino weaves a tale that had me believing the Land Of Faery truly turns Hurricanes away from Tampa when possible. Considering I am showing my age, this is a testament that Reggie & Ryssa and the Summer Camp of Faery is for all ages. So Bo, where is the next book? We can't wait!
A Must Read Book May 19, 2006
Delightful & witty...a great book to take you away to another world for just long enough that you'll feel sorry to leave. I can't wait for the next book to revisit the world of Faery...an incredible read for both kids and adults. The first book in a series that left me both satisfied at the ending and yet still wanting more!
Had a very hard time putting Reggie and Ryssa down May 18, 2006
Reggie and Ryssa takes you to unfamiliar places in the fantasy world. Bo Savino has a way of writing that just pulls you right into the story line. I am honored to have read Reggie and Ryssa and cannot wait til the 2nd one in the series comes out. Reggie and Ryssa is not only for young adults, but adults as well. I know for a fact that I will read this one again. Also, I will be telling all my friends to get Reggie and Ryssa, so that they can find out what the message and teaching it has.
