The Boy Scout by Vanayssa Somers is a new kind of fairy tale. It has kings and queens and fairy wizards. And a shaman, with a magic carpet. Vanayssa Somers also uses time travel in a unique way. Another one of those good vs. evil stories, with the fairy wizards helping humans defeat evil, aka human trafficking. It’s a sensitive subject that is beautifully written to give you hope for humankind. Vanayssa Somers shows that true love can conquer all, even time and evil. I should warn you there is some sex and violence in it, which makes sense when talking about human trafficking.

I thought The Boy Scout by Vanayssa Somers was an unique way of telling a fairy tale. You got your king and queen and “knight in shining armor” to save the queen, but it has a wonderful twist. I love time travel and Vanayssa Somer’s use of it was the most interesting concept I’ve read in a long time. And she explained it in a way that even I could understand. There is an explicit detail of a love making scene and one explicit detail of a child abuse scene, so you should proceed with caution. But it is a wonderful way to bring out the details of human trafficking, and show everyone just how dangerous it really is. It’s a unique way to show that people from all walks of the universe can come together to help defeat this evil and to help save the children around the world.
