Coco is a character who I know I shouldn't like, but I did anyway. She is spoiled, a flirt, and she takes pleasure in breaking men's hearts. But you know what? I didn't care. Under all that, you could see through how she interacted with Pipsy that she was actually a decent human being. I identify more with Maelyn, but I enjoyed reading about Coralina more.
Gord....hmmm. I had mixed feelings about him. He was another interesting character, but I don't think I exactly liked him as much as I should have. The ending was definitely not a cliche romance ending, which may be the reason for my unfair feelings toward him. I liked his daughter, Pipsy, more than him.
At first, I thought the bandits would be sort of babyish. I mean, they were stealing hair! But, considering that, I thought that they were actually written pretty well. When I found out who the bandits were, it made even more sense and really added to the story.
The story kind of had an ending, it kind of didn't. A few things were resolved, and others seemed to be leading up to the next book, Heidel. And now that I've read Coralina, I am definitely reading Heidel!
I would definitely recommend you read this story. I don't think you need to read Maelyn to read this book, but I have a feeling Maelyn will be important later on in the series, so perhaps you should. It is a short, fun, read that is unexpectedly great!
This story doesn't have the implied Happily Ever After that Maelyn's alluded to. But it does continue the idea that the stories of all 9 princesses is in fact one story.
I did like Coralina's story and I encourage that it be read, so that all Happily Ever Afters (in other stories/tales/what-have-you) taste that much sweeter. I can't wait to see what peripherally happens to Coralina, during her sisters' stories.
We first meet Coralina, or Coco as her sisters call her, in the first novella where she seems self-centered, egotistical, and painfully shallow. That is completely confirmed in her own novella. She’s horrible and she plays with hearts as though they were disposable toys meant only to entertain her for a short time. BUT, you need to hang in there and keep reading because she is really in for some challenges and hopefully permanent changes. By the end, you might even be rooting for her…
Seriously, read this series. It’s quick, easy, entertaining, and (as I’m coming to realize) addicting.
