    By AxieIn The White Fox, 16-year-old British teen, Jack Lawson, lives in an orphanage and has only two friends: Lucy, a spirited shopaholic, and Alex, missing from the start of the book. He also has a mysterious glowing white fox that follows him around town and may or may not be a hallucination. When a crop of suspicious, hooded figures start popping up in his hometown, accompanied by chain of freak disappearances and even murder, Jack becomes introduced to a magical resistance group called the Apollonians. They exist to fight the dangerous Cult of Dionysus, whose hooded members aim to spread Darkness throughout the worlds. (Plural. There are many worlds.) Jack, along with Lucy and the Apollonians, must travel to the planet of Rauthr in an effort to stop the Dark from destroying the Light.The White Fox reads like a mix between Lord Of The Rings and a storyline for a video game role play, like Kingdom Hearts. There are elves, dwarves, goblins, and an epic storyline with a massive battle scene as the climax. The video game feel is exemplified by the linear storytelling which focuses on scene by scene action: first the hero battles boss #1, then boss #2, then the final boss.The enemy is Darkness, and there are tons of worlds, all at different levels technologically (Earth is Earth, Rauthr is medieval, and Nexus, the home of the bad guys, is futuristic). The main hero comes of age during the journey. He grows up as he becomes pivotal in the fight between good and evil. We're treated to excellent character development, humor, and loads of imagination. My favorite character is the white fox because he's snarky and his name is Inari-Inari is the name of a Japanese Okami, or god, who uses white foxes as messengers. It seems the fox is supposed to have some elusive Japanese mythological relation, but that isn't exploited in the plot.My main criticisms revolve around plot pacing and execution. The action scenes are very confusing, and even slower scenes tend to jump around a bit without laying out the plot clearly for the reader. Sometimes the writing is over the top and a little crazy, which doesn't sit well with this type of book-since it's more middle grade than young adult and more commercial than literary, it really shouldn't be confusing, ever.The White Fox is University student James Bartholomeusz's debut under Medallion Press's new YA-YA division. YA-YA specializes in young adult books written by young adults, and I'm way jealous of Bartholomeusz for publishing as a teen! But, I think it's great, too, and applaud him for The White Fox, a very fun, engaging book.

    Jack Lawson is an ordinary sixteen year old, living in an orphanage and with few friends. One day he sees a white fox and then Jack and his friends are attacked a few days later by mysterious figures wearing hoods to disguise their features. Later, Jack finds out the attackers are from the Cult of Dionysus when they are rescued by the Apollonians and taken to a different planet. The Apollonians need Jack to step up and become their savior and fight off the Darkness which threatens to consume them all. Jack must overcome his fears, learn the mythos that rules his new world, and face the enemy head on to vanquish it.I found The White Fox to have some issues. Some of the phrasing and the plot seems a bit awkward and choppy at times. The character development is a bit haphazard and there seems to be some missing pieces from the puzzle. I hope the next two books are more polished because I think there is a lot of potential in this author.

    Jack and Lucy... such a pair. The pair are from Birchford, England. Jack is an orphan, Lucy well she's just spunky and a typical teenage girl. Teens Jack and Lucy are literally tossed into another world all because Jack happened to notice strange happenings around his home and was spotted. Cultish black cloaked demons controlled by the Cult of Dionysus are scattering around the area, to have the Dark prevail and to destroy this world. Jack sees a white fox and the journey begins when the Apollonians pull them out of their home area to protect them from the cult. This book has a variety, magic, elves, dwarfs, demons, and is dimensional. Good character descriptions and easily followed. For a teen to have written this I must say very well done. You can tell he put lots of thoughts in the descriptions and seemed to be very well polished. A few slight misrepresentations of wording, all in all well done.

    I'm sorry, the plot line was interesting, a bit derivative, but drawn from several sources so as to make a new whole.Unfortunately the author used the largest most obscure word they could think of where an ordinary word would do ( it hasn't been so long, and I am not so old that I don't know that people the age of the protagonists not think that way, in fact people in general do not think that way...even that could have been overlooked had the obscure word been the Right obscure word, my vocabulary is extensive, and in this case it is unfortunate, as I could not overlook the times when the word used meant something so far from what was obviously intended that the mental image created by the glaring error was EXTREMELY distracting.I REMOVED THE BOOK FROM MY KINDLE I did NOT finish it !!!!!!!!!I became so irritated by the misused words that I could not enjoy what seemed to have been (as far as I got with it anyway) a well thought out plot line.The author would do well to use a dictionary the next time he uses words not normally used in general conversation.
