Jayne Frost is a winter elf, Jack Frost's daughter, Santa Claus's niece, heir to the Winter Throne, and now private investigator. Needing someone he can trust, her father sends her to Nocturne Falls to find out why employees at a toy store are going missing. Doing that requires getting to know the town, which leads to interesting encounters with a sexy vampire, an old flame, and an elevator that's strictly off-limits. The more Jayne finds out, the more questions she has, but the answers lead her deeper into danger.

I went through all these books like candy.

They were so unique, fun and light hearted.

I love Jayne Frost daughter of Jack Frost and Niece of non other then Santa Clause and the town of Nocturne Falls is a place I actually wish existed so I can move there.

All the character you meet in this town are interesting and easy to love.

I recommend this series, followed by the Nocturne Falls series and I'm currently working on the Nocturne Falls Universe Stories.

It was difficult for me to get through the, the writer seems a bit all over the place. I like the concept but it was very unpolished and felts choppy. I have been really into witch series and this seems like it would be right down my alley and at a pretty good price.

Its not horrible but if is also no the best. I feel like it needs a rewrite and rework to make it feel more solid and complete.

I love the entire series but this book is absolutely frustrating.

***SPOILER ALERT***

The first 2-3 hours of this book Bae is nothing but a whiney insecure little child. (yes a child and the narrator does not help her case)

You would think after seeing her and Landons relationship through Aunt Tilly's eyes she would be more confident, but nope she acts like immature child and falls back to her old self. She has no understanding of the importance of "Undercover work". She acts like an immature teenager pouting about the stupidest and most insignificant things, making a big deal out of something so small.

She then continues to drive everyone else insane and she then tries to pick a fight with other people.

This insane insecurity is 5 step backwards to her characters growth and its upsetting that she moved backwards in development rather then forwards.

It was hard getting through this book! Very disappointing.

I feared that using my magic would bring me closer to the faerie realm I tried so desperately to escape. I was right. I made a promise to a faerie, and they've come to deliver. A powerful talisman has disappeared, and without it, the faeries in this realm are losing their magic. Getting involved wasn't in my plan, but if I refuse to help the faeries find the talisman, I'll die.

I enjoyed this book, it was thrilling and full of some good fight scenes.

My favorite part of this book in particular is Ivy is just getting to know the extent of her power and is slowly learning to wield it.

I must say I'm both in loved and afraid of the Lady of the Tree!
Pretty exciting to learn more about the shiftier God.

I enjoyed the development of the antagonist and villains in this book.

Full of actions, a smidge of heated romance and getting to understand and know more about the other characters in the book.

I'm Ivy Lane, and if I never see another faerie again, it'll be too soon. Twenty years after the faeries came and destroyed the world as we knew it, I use my specialist skills to keep rogue faeries in line and ensure humans and their magically gifted neighbors can coexist (relatively) peacefully. Nobody knows those skills came from the darkest corner of Faerie itself. When a human child disappears, replaced with a faerie changeling, I have to choose between taking the safe road or exposing my own history with the faeries to the seductively dangerous head of the Mage Lords.

I researched this series and found it very interesting, and also decided with how many were written there was something worth it all, so I impulsively bought the first 3 books right out the bat, knowing how fast I go through them I wanted to be ready to just go, go, go.

Listened to the first book and really didn't want to finish, it felt too long and drawn out. I kept losing interest, But since I already bought the first 3 books I pushed myself to Keep going and I'm happy I did. It got really good near the end. So after I finished, I started book 2 and that one caught my interest right of the bat.

So give it a shot and hang in there because it is worth it in the end!

I will say the second book is much much better.

This was probably my favorite of the 3 books.
I loved the ending, it was done beautifully.
A life full-filled by 2 great loves.

This was probably the book that really ignited my imagination.

I love her focus on the change of Morpheus and Jeb.

In this book the growth and changes to Jeb was my favorite.
The way his character was developed was beautiful and captivating.

Morpheus still has my heart always and forever but Jeb is not a bad second choice!

Wonderful story thank you for sharing your lovely twisted Wondrland A.G. Howard.
This series will go down as one of my favorite series and will be a book I would happily share with friends and family.

She saved the life of Jeb, the boy she loves, and escaped the machinations of the disturbingly appealing Morpheus. Now all she has to do is graduate high school. That would be easier without her mother, freshly released from an asylum, acting overly protective and suspicious.

I love this series, I enjoyed the writers awesome dark twist to one of my favorite stories and the narrator is beyond amazing I absolutely adore her.

I didn't much enjoy that this story's setting was set away from my wonderland but I will have to say my favorite chapter was the prom and I enjoyed the vision she set on my mind for the setting. I also loved that Allison finally broke out of her shell, the mother daughter scene touched my heart. The sweetness of them finally being of the same cloth and believing that together they can do anything actually made me tear up.

This Series is Clever, Dark and Beautiful!
This series is a must for Wonderland lovers like myself.

BTW Morpheus still has my heart.
