    "So NOT What I Expected!"
    Would you listen to UnEnchanted again? Why?

    Say what?! Seriously, I did not expect anything miraculous with this book, and never would I have expected that I would get hooked into this fun series! Mina is adorable as a determined Grime (Grimm), whose family has a curse on them created by non other than royal Fae. And while living in a fairy tale might seem grand, to Mina it's just another day of trouble. With her loved one's lives in the balance, it's all Mina can do to keep up with the curse, but with friends like her's, and a new ally, she just might break it!Unenchanted is definitely a light read, but I was so caught up in the story and characters, that I made a mad dash to order the next in the series! Was this book totally unique? Not really, but the plot, the sweet characters, the overall tone of the story immediately grabs your attention, and before you know it you're transported to a world of fairy tale creatures gone amok! Originally, within the first few chapters, I felt this book was generated towards a much younger audience, but it truly is for any age, and great entertainment! Also the narrator did a really good job with this series, but I will say that it did take me a chapter or two before I warmed up to her, and was totally engrossed from that point forward. Again, this is a light read, but it's massively fun and you'll be cheering Mina on!

    Story
    "Don't bother"

    2-1/2 stars: Meh. For as short as it was, it felt like it dragged a bit. Also, Mina and Brody acted way older than their 15/16 years, in terms of romance, possessiveness, etc. They just didn't feel right to me. I didn't like Nan. She was completely obnoxious and no way I'd keep her for a best friend if I was Mina. The whole story felt like it was "off". I can't fault the the reader of the audio, though, who did a nice job (and who I've really enjoyed before reading other books). It's a shame because I had high hopes for this book (and series).

    Story
    "A Clever Interweave of Urban Fantasy & Fairy Tale"
    What did you love best about UnEnchanted?

    The story. It's like a fairy tale retelling on steroids. So clever that even though you know which fairy tale you're in, you can't figure out how the story will resolve. That is impressive to me!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of UnEnchanted?

    The end. It made me sad, but also hopeful for the series.


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love the voices she gives to the characters. Nan' voice, especially, but also Mina's.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I chuckled at several spots. The author did a great job with dialog and writing teens without making it feel contrived.

    "Fun, easy, short!"

    Love this narrator!! Her voice is great! I liked the book. It was an easy listen and I read some of the chapters in the kindle version. It was too short, but it was great for some fun light listening/reading.

    Story
    "Annoying protagonist and unbeliveable relationship"
    What disappointed you about UnEnchanted?

    The protagonist of the story is annoying. Hard to find anything to "like" about her. Her uncalled for outbursts make her appear childish. This makes the continued interest of the too perfect love interest unbelievable and hard to sympathise with.

    The story had potential, but I just couldn't get through it felt as if the book had been written by a teenager. Perhaps okay for 10 year olds and down...

    "Can not stop"
    What did you love best about UnEnchanted?

    The story is fascinating


    What other book might you compare UnEnchanted to and why?

    I generally do not listen to novels. But this one comes as the first one I listened using audible. Very good starting.


    Have you listened to any of Khristine Hvam’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No

    "great story for all"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I am an adult and buy and listen to literature for my kids. This series is very entertaining. Not your ordinary "fairy tale princess" story. Root for the underdog and read the book.

    Story
    "love it"
    If you could sum up UnEnchanted in three words, what would they be?

    fun, easy read


    What did you like best about this story?

    Love the spin on the fairy tales- nice job Chanda Hahn


    What does Khristine Hvam bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Khristine Hvam as a narrator! I first heard her when she narrated the trilogy of Daughter of Smoke and Bone and thoroughly enjoyed her narration then- I was thrilled when I saw that she is narrating this series.
