In 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.

In Birchford, England sixteen-year-old orphan Jack Lawson is walking with one of his few friends popular Lucy when he sees the glowing white fox; she fails to notice anything as she was babbling in teen speak. A few days later, the pair notices dangerous looking hooded figures stalking the town. The White Fox introduces himself to Jack as his guardian and warns him to remain vigilant. Not long afterward members of the Cult of Dionysus attack Jack and Lucy and his other friend Alex vanishes.

The Apollonians rescue the teens by taking them to the planet Rauthr where elves are at war with demons at a time when the Darkness is spreading across the universe. Although they have doubts that Jack is the savior, the practical Apollonians know he is there only hope to use the magical shards of starlight against the encroaching Darkness.

This is an entertaining quest fantasy written by a teen for a teenage audience. Jack is an intriguing hero who burns beans while living in an orphanage that is more a prison than a home; his sidekick Lucy sums up their escapades together as he is Gandalf the young and she is the karate Kid. Mindful of Michael Ende's "The Neverending Story" though targeting an older audience, readers will enjoy James Bartholomeusz's exciting The White Fox while looking forward to more of Jack's adventures.

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.

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.
