The Sorcerer King (The Faerie Path #3), by Frewin Jones

Tania’s adventures in the realm of Faerie continue with The Sorcerer King (or The Seventh Daughter in some countries), the third installment in the Faerie Path series. I was actually pretty excited to reread this one, because I remember exactly where I was when I read this book’s climax the first time. I was at … Continue reading The Sorcerer King (The Faerie Path #3), by Frewin Jones

Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen, by Serena Valentino

You all know about my love of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and how disappointed I was with the Disney Twisted Tale rendition of the Evil Queen’s story. At the end of that review, however, I did mention a saving grace in Disney villain lore: Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked … Continue reading Fairest of All: A Tale of the Wicked Queen, by Serena Valentino

The Lost Queen (The Faerie Path #2), by Frewin Jones

Two years ago, I reviewed Frewin Jones’ The Faerie Path, returning to a world I visited in my teenage years many times. But if I’ve cracked the spine of that book several, several times, I’ve only peeked into the rest of the series once. I did, however, look at the sequel, The Lost Queen, a … Continue reading The Lost Queen (The Faerie Path #2), by Frewin Jones

The Wizard, the Witch, and Two Girls from Jersey, by Lisa Papademetriou

Fun fact about me: in high school, I was the book reporter for our school newspaper. I mostly wrote about fantasy books that weren’t always trending on the market, and I’m pretty sure no student took me at my word, but I still enjoyed seeing my reviews printed in black and white. I suppose you … Continue reading The Wizard, the Witch, and Two Girls from Jersey, by Lisa Papademetriou

Once Upon a Dream: A Twisted Tale, by Liz Braswell

The Disney Twisted Tales series has been a mixed bag so far. So This is Love pretty much hit it out of the park, and Mirror, Mirror was abysmal for what I was hoping for. And now we have a third volume, Once Upon a Dream, featuring the characters from Sleeping Beauty. Right up front, … Continue reading Once Upon a Dream: A Twisted Tale, by Liz Braswell

Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, by Beth Fantaskey

I want you all to quickly remember the YA scene during the Twilight craze, when teenage vampire romances were all the rage. Think of all the thinly-plotted knockoffs that disgraced the YA shelf during that time. We remember the over-sexed, awkward, and cliché House of Night series, but then, we also remember the delicious soap-opera-esque … Continue reading Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side, by Beth Fantaskey

Mirror, Mirror: A Twisted Tale, by Jen Calonita

Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is…something of an obsession of mine. Even as a kid, I freaking loved the tale of kind and gentle Snow White, her friends the seven dwarfs, and, of course, the cruel and jealous Evil Queen. I’ve even cosplayed as Snow White twice. In fact, when comic conventions become … Continue reading Mirror, Mirror: A Twisted Tale, by Jen Calonita
