I venture into the lair of the witch, the Black Forest, swearing I’ll either leave with my brother or die trying.

When I run into General Stefan at the edge of the Black Forest, who’s there on the behalf of the king, we form a tumultuous alliance. Stefan drives me crazy even as the attraction between us grows. But I can’t afford to worry about silly feelings. Cloaked in spells, the witch’s forest is no child game. We’ll have to use every ounce of our willpowers to not succumb to the witch’s sweet, poisonous treats if we want to win and leave with our minds intact.

a sweet, quick story

this retelling features Gretel as the main character. A quiet and academic mouse as opposed to her brother Hansel the life of the party. when a curse takes Hansel away, incredible must find her in a courage to take down that has been plaguing her kingdom. throw in a mysterious "guard" who has gretel's back, they take on a witch who dabbles in mind controlling suites.

it's a sweet (pun intended) quick retelling are you expecting to follow Hansel and Gretel really poor Gretel is the man in distress. as this is a novella the story moves quickly as does the romance which is expected. for what it was I enjoyed the book and it was a nice mindless read while doing tasks around the house. I definitely recommend it!

Hansel and Gretel with a Twist

Loved this book so much. It was definitely a new take on the classic tale. The way the gingerbread houses were used was clever. The twist on the witch was refreshing. If you like a good fractured fairytale, you’ll definitely want to read this.

Can Gretel Save Hansel?

Reviewer: Teresa Fallen Angel

Summary:
This is a wonderful twist to an old fairy tale with an unexpected twist. Gretel’s brother Hansel disappears without a trace after a night out with his friends on their birthday. Now Gretel is more happy spending time with her books and is a total opposite of Hansel. It isn’t until after he is gone that Gretel learns the truth, her brother’s life was signed over to the witch when they came of age. Gretel takes a chance that the queen may know some way to save Hansel. Gretel takes on the task to save her brother and meets up with General Stefan who will do whatever he can to save his country.

Now there are many secrets that have once revealed could change everything for both Gretel and Hansel. Will they find a way to save Hansel before it is too late? Who exactly is General Stefan?

This was an incredibly intricate story that took the original fairy tale to a whole now level. I enjoyed hoe the audio-book brought the characters alive for the listener.

Sweet retelling of Hansel and Gretel

I enjoyed this sweet retelling of Hansel and Gretel, where the sweets were drugs, the witch was magical and a hint of romance was in the air!

Fabulous Twist to a Classic Fairytale

This book was an amazing audible. I love how the author was able to update this classic story yet leave us in the world of page-turning magic. This story gives us a heroine, Gretel, who is willing to do whatever it takes to help her brother Hansel when she learns he has been kidnapped. She does not blink when she learns that the kidnapper is a beautiful wicked witch who kidnaps humans and takes away their willpower by enticing them with candy. Gretel does feel somewhat guilty that she should have attended their 17th birthday party with Hansel instead of declining the invitation and staying home to read a book.

Gretel travels into the Black Forest, where the witch lives. To her surprise, she runs into the Queen's General Stephan. Stephan is also on a mission to help the royal family, as he is the only one able to get close to the Black Forest. Soldiers who were sent into the forest never returned, so it's up to Stephan to help. Gretel and Stephan decide to work together to save Hansel and the royal family. They go through several challenges and obstacles along the way. Gretel and Stephan develop and friendship, and yes, their friendship slowly transforms into something more significant.

During their journey, Stephan is faced with betrayal he didn't see coming, and Gretel makes friends with a magical being that offers assistance when she needs it the most. Although tied to the witch, Hansel still has a connection to his sister, and the question throughout the storyline will have you wondering how long the bond will survive between the two siblings. I love HEA storylines and was not disappointed.

Margo Ryerkerk does an exceptional job of providing well-developed characters. The performance of these characters is very believable as they are brought to life by the narrator, Andy Garcia-Ruse. This audible is a highly entertaining twist to the classic, and if you enjoy fairytales, you will not be disappointed with the purchase of The Hansel and Gretel Curse.

Could be better

I felt the plot was intriguing and did like the story it self. I would have liked more details in the beginning such as, period it was set in and location though. I was not a fan of the narrator but I have very few that I do like so I could be bias on that subject. It was a good book but I would have enjoyed it much more if it had given more details throughout.
