    It's been three months since Jack left May and Phillip. During this time, he's been training to serve his new master. Meanwhile, Phillip is in his country with Penelope (aka Sleeping Beauty) wishing for adventure. And May has taken her place with her evil step-mother and step-sisters.

    But plans are in motion for one final showdown with the Evil Queen. And there is still the prophecy that one of the guys will betray May and the other will die. Will any of them be able to win the freedom of the people in their realm?

    This is an intricately plotted series, and part of me wishes I could have read them back to back. Still, once I got into the story, I remembered the important things that had happened before. However, if you haven't read the series to date, don't start here. Begin at the beginning.

    It will totally be worth your time. The characters are great as always, and they really do show quite a bit of growth not only in the course of the series but specifically in this book. The story moves along quickly as we often jump between one of the three main characters. I never wanted to put the book down. While this is the climax of the story, so it's a bit more serious, it does still have some of the humor that have made the previous books sparkle as well. And it does wrap everything up quite well.

    In other words, this is a delightful entry in the alternative fairy tale genre. Kids or anyone who loves seeing a new take on their favorite characters will enjoy this series.

    5.0 out of 5 stars As good as Rick Riordan May 7, 2013
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    To be truthful I have been waiting for this book since January, I was so excited the day before this book came out I stayed up all night just to get it. I just loved the end of the book. It definitely was the best of the three books. I enjoyed every bit of it. The adventure and the suspense. I think it is safe to say that it is worthy of Rick Riordan. ;-)

    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    I absolutely loved this book! I couldn't put it down for a second. I'll admit at some points, I was tempted to throw the kindle across the room over the suspense and plot twists in the chapters, and I am super glad I didn't! Not only is this book super well written, it had me at the edge of my seat the entire time. I strongly recommend this book for anyone.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Hillarious, I LOVED it May 19, 2013

    (Q0Q)
    This was my face when I saw that this book. I had gotton Half Upon a Time in paperback, but immediately wanted the sequel, so I downloaded it as quickly as I

    could and devoured it. By the time I was done with number 2, I desperately wanted the third. Luckily for me, It had been published only a week before, and I got it on. I loved it, and definently would recommend it too others. The artwork on the covers were great, it had a great sense of humor. What really was signifigant about this book is that I can think that this was a good title for it. There are go many twice upon a times and thrice upon a times that it gets really confusing and old. But not this book. It's great, and probably deserves a six star rating.

    More About the Author

    James Riley is the author of the Half Upon a Time series, as well as many books too unwritten to count. He's met thousands of imaginary people, most of whom are more polite than you'd think, but less interesting than you'd hope. He doesn't believe fairy tales actually happened, mostly because he's never had tiny elves do his work for him at night, despite them promising several times.

    James currently lives outside Washington, DC, but it's not like he's special that way ... so do a lot of other people.
