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!

Khristine Hyam did a superb job on this book. Her character voices and true to life laughs during the story had me enjoying every minute. She is definitely one of the best female narrators I've heard.

At the end of the last book she was strong and the beginning of this book she is so weak. She whined her way through 20 chapters. She would get stronger then flake out.
