Publisher's summary

He doesn't want to get married, but he wants to be a frog even less. Knight errant Devin takes a shortcut through the woods, only to be captured by fairy forces. The fairy queen has run out of breathing males to fight for her hand, and Devin, while not ideal fairy stock, is breathing - for now.

Telling a vain fairy queen you'd rather not be her one true love is a ticket to life on a lily pad, so the knight agrees to face three challenges to win Queen Agalea's hand. When a clever servant girl offers to help him navigate the trials in order to stop the constant bloodshed of the courtship ritual, Devin jumps at the chance. However, as he balances "flirting" with his "beloved" and overcoming tasks specifically designed to kill him, he finds his heart drawn to his new partner in survival.

Wasn't a fan

This story was okay. I wouldn’t say there was anything ‘wow’ about it. It’s like I had a job to do. I was the one to ask for a code because the cover caught my eye, so I had to listen to it. I did that and I’m now reviewing. I just feel that magical connection to any of the characters. The storytelling aspect just fell flat.

The narrator did an all right job. I don’t know if it was a mistake in the story or if the narrator just mispronounced the word, but there was a part when she said something like “Fleshing, Savine bent and reclaimed her tray,” instead of saying “Blushing.” Overall, I think with more practice, she’ll get better at least in the male voice category.

Questions/Comments:

This will probably seem strange but I can’t help but think that faeries wouldn’t be using the phrase “god only knows…” Is it just me? Or referring to those they intend to marry as their fiancé as opposed to their betrothed…I mean there are knights still, so the story isn’t taking place in a current time.

I get the queen was the queen, the number one in charge, but given she was killing all the males in her kingdom, you’d think her followers would have struck back and killed her. Yes, she had the garden of statue, those that had tried to do whatever to her in the past, but still. Were there no other magical creatures that could have helped?

I wasn’t a fan of the ending. It was too simple. Like the queen is horrible and does all this bad stuff and bam! She’s no longer. It was just too neat and tidy for my liking.
