Publisher's Summary

Rough-and-tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she's the only one of her sisters without any magic - until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, "Did romance have to be part of the adventure?"

As in Enchanted, listeners will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.

    Story
    "A nice follow-up to Enchanted"

    Katherine Kellgren is one of my favorite narrators so I listened to Enchanted, the first book in Kontis's series, because of her. I enjoyed the story, a twist on classic fairy tales. When I saw that Kontis was continuing the series, I was intrigued. The story is not as strong as that of Enchanted, but it is still a nice story and Kellgren does a good job with the narration. I would recommend this book, especially if you liked Enchanted.

    Story
    "Being a Hero isn't based on what you do - but who you are."

    A great follow up to the first book, it was thoroughly enjoyable getting to know more about Saturday and the rest of the Woodcutter clan.

    The only down note? Katherine Kellgren, whom I normally enjoy (especially as the voice of The Royal Spyness series) was just OVERLY strident virtually the whole book. Sorry KK - you're one of my favorite female narrators - just maybe not so much on this book. Maybe we can pass some of that to the director though.

    Anyway, swords, magic, dragons and the Woodcutters make for a fun read.
