Sunlight and Shadow: A Retelling of The Magic Flute by Cameron Dokey

The multiple viewpoints were fun. Cameron Dokey is the author of nearly thirty young adult novels.

Jun 22, Elizabeth Devan rated it did not like it Shelves: And like The Wild Orchid, I am not satisfied at the romance turnout. Beauty and the Beast. I enjoyed this book but it was slightly hard ccameron follow, it jumped between characters every chapter and at some points I had to go back to the beginning of the chapter to remember who was narrating.

I love this books It makes me happy.

Lady Mina is the daughter of night and day, and he father kidnaps her therefore breaking a promiseI thought that Sunlight and Shadow was a strange mix of joy, sorrow, and overall befuddlement. Cmaeron Magic Flute or to give it the proper name, Die Zauberflote, was one of the first operas that I came to know and truly enjoy — the premise is the rescue mission of a young princess, a test for a young prince and his companion, and terrific music as well.


When he camedon the calling of Lapin’s bells, he traveled to find fokey source of the bells, which was how he met the Queen of the Night. Comments really make my day. Then there’s this other dude named Tern who’s a prince and anc follows his heart’s desire to Lady Mina using a flute that he carved himself. I don’t know if there were magic bells in The Magic Flute, but there were magic bells in this story and the bells and the flute led the players to the one who held their heart, or the heart of the one who was on your mind as you played.

Of course, it’s not very long, so that isn’t difficult. I really like Cameron Dokey’s writing style. How wise of you to tell Tern.

Refresh and try again. Sarastro, however, does not honor that agreement and steals his daughter the night before her birthday. Very annoying, to say the least.

Looking for beautiful books? Their routine is set by the setting of the sun every day, and the glories of the evening sky.

The story is told from several of the main characters POV which was a really fun twist on storytelling in general.

And so he ends up as part of her household, and Pamina’s only friend from the outside world. I loved everything about this book. I’m not saying that all of Cameron Dokey’s books are like that, since Golden was to my satisfaction.

Also I get that this is a fairy tale series but all this instalove has got to stop or at least slow down. I was totally unfamiliar to the tale of The Magical Flute, so I went into the story without any background. Lapin who by the way is a guy. To say the least, Pamina dreads that day, and as it nears, she and her mother ask for a meeting with her father, treachery occurs, and Pamina is forcibly seperated from her mother, and taken to Sarastro’s side of the mountain.

And that was how Lapin and the Lady Mina became the best of friends.
