The Immortal Realm (The Faerie Path #4), by Frewin Jones

Some books predict what the future might be, and we muse over what that reality would be like. I remember reading The Immortal Realm, the fourth book in the Faerie Path series about ten years ago, and musing over what would happen if a plague spread across the world and there was a race to … Continue reading The Immortal Realm (The Faerie Path #4), by Frewin Jones

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
