Book Description

After serving time for Snow White’s attempted murder, the Evil Queen is about to get a makeover. Just not the kind she expected. Thinking she’s being sent to a luxurious spa that will enable her to restore her beauty and recapture her title, Fairest of All, Jane Yvel instead finds herself at Faraway, a rehab center that caters to Fairytalelanders addicted to evil.

Upon confronting her love-hate relationship with her magic mirror and the demons of her past, she is sent back to the world of happily-ever-after. Her goal: to discover the true meaning of beauty. Her assignment: to work for Marcella, a demanding Princess-In-Waiting. Jane finds herself irresistibly drawn to Marcella's dashing fiancé, Prince Gallant, and his exquisite seven-year old daughter, Calla Rose. Will the Evil Queen who had no heart end up with a heart that’s broken?

Wickedly funny, darkly shocking, and deeply moving, DEWITCHED unravels the Snow White story as we know it and will make you see the evil legend in a new light as she rewrites her life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious and Dishy June 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Dewitched: The Untold Story of the Evil Queen is a fun, funny, yet tender spin on what happened to the evil queen after the poisoned apple. For the first time we get to know the Evil Queen (Jane Yvel) as a person outside of the fairy tale, but still in the fairy tale world and follow her on her journey towards self-discovery. This cross between satire, spoof and poignant quest is definitely a book for the grownup set. The best adjectives I can use to describe this book are delicious and dishy. I read it all in one sitting because I couldn't put it down. It's the perfect read for the beach, an airplane or anytime you want pure enjoyment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Where Snow White ends, Jane Yvel begins... June 9, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dewitched is a direct continuation of the Snow White myth, but with the most breathless of twists -- this time, the protagonist is Jane Yvel, the Evil Queen herself. After being put on trial and humiliated for her crimes, Jane is propelled into an incredible quest for meaning, love and redemption. And what a journey it is! As she narrates her tale in the first person, Jane proves to be a compelling character -- smart, sardonic and armed with a sympathetic backstory.

I will steer clear of spoiler territory, but let me just say that author E.L. Sarnoff has crafted one heck of an delicious tale here. It's a biting satire that puts a fresh new spin on an age-old villainness. And, as an added plus, Sarnoff also throws in a sprinkling of appearances by classic characters -- everyone from the Huntsman to Pinocchio. When competing personalities collide, the result is funny, melancholic, surprising and provocative -- all at once!

I really enjoyed reading Dewitched, and you will too. I can't recommend this enough -- it's a wonderful read geared that you should pick up if you like their fairy tales to be hip, mature and different.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely fabulous!!!!! June 10, 2012
By Goddess
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book! I was watching Snow White and the Huntsman, and wondering how much grimmer fairytales can get, when I stumbled upon this little gem. This is a chick lit version of the Evil Queen from Snow White, and it's as funny as funny gets! I LOLed at so many places and was delighted at the character arcs. I swear - every character had a character arc that was fulfilling, and there were plenty of twists and turns along the way to keep you surprised.

This is a wonderful book!! Bring on the movie, I say!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, just not great December 2, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the concept and there were many clever, sly references to other fairytale characters woven throughout the story. Overall, though, the writing could have been stronger. I'm torn as to whether I care enough to read the sequel or just let it go...

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Entertaining! November 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
‘Dewitched’ is the story of the evil queen from Snow White.

I thought the concept of the villainous queen – Jane Yvel - being forced into rehab to mend her evil ways was very interesting and original. This is written in first person from the queen’s point of view as she slowly begins to see the error of her ways. Much of the humour comes from Jane’s reactions to the different therapies, situations she is put in, and the other characters she meets. I found this brilliantly funny. I also enjoyed and was surprised by the various other fairy tale characters as they showed up.

The story itself is very well constructed and has a good few twists to it, some more predictable than others. I found it thoroughly entertaining from start to finish and I didn’t want to put the book down so I ended up reading it when I should have been doing other things which I don’t regret it at all! I completely loved this book and have already gotten the sequel which I will be reading when I have plenty of time to sit down and devour it in one sitting.

This book takes well known fairy tale characters, a good dose of humour and an excellent, entertaining story and mixes them up to create a captivating read. Highly recommended!

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing Insights March 27, 2014
By Rissa
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was great insight into the Evil Queen, or Jane, lots of plot twists, & hilarious life commentaries from Jane.
There was no sex, only kissing but a lot of longing & sexual tension.
The humor was almost negated when all the evil things that happened to Jane through the cruelty of her mother created havoc & repercussions in her daily life. This book was fraught with bad mothering memories for Jane.
However, it was fabulous that Jane was able to recognize her's & her mother's faults to be a kind, loving, giving & caring individual who is truly beautiful on the inside & out.
