About the Author
She has since swum with sea lions, sharks and sea cucumbers and stood on spray-drenched cliffs over a seething sea as a seven-metre cyclonic swell surged in, shattering a shipwreck below.
Sensationalist spin? No - Demelza tends to take a camera with her so she can capture and share the moment later; shipwrecks, sharks and all.
Demelza now lives in Perth, Western Australia, the shark attack capital of the world.

I am fortunate enough to say that this was another fairytale that I did not know prior to reading this re-telling. I had forgotten how a fairytale could make a child hold their breath in anticipation, concern, worry, and hope. This was a treat for me!
I loved Ava from start to finish and Prince Yun is a gentleman, through and through!
Just to bring into perspective how these stories are being woven together: their son, is Prince Yi in DANCE, book two in the series and book four, REVEL, is about Ava’s sister, Bianca.
I am absolutely loving this series and looking forward to every release.
Note: while I was given this book as a gifted ARC, my opinions are my own and are given freely.
Title: FLY: GOOSE GIRL RETOLD
Series: Romance a Medieval Fairytale # 3
Category /Genre: Fairytale Retelling; Paranormal Romance
Recommended for: 18+ due to sexual content
Grammar/editing: B – a few small errors
Received from: Demelza Carlton (as an ARC gifted copy)
Fly contains an overview of the story, which I appreciate knowing about a story before I read; but not a book report. This book is part of Dance and Revel.
Enchant: Beauty and the Beast Retold - Interesting writer. What a fun, interesting spin on an old classic. (I do hope the old classics still remain as favorites, while the new versions join the ranks of beloved tales.) I really enjoy reading Ms. Carlton’s writing, she is great.
Awaken: Sleeping Beauty Retold - Wonderful Story Teller. Another delightful fairy tale. Well written and edited. I’m looking forward to read all of Ms. Carlton’s writings, since the few works I’ve read so far have not disappointed me once.
Dance: Cinderella Retold - Wonderful story teller. A wonderful, delightful read. I know this will be a successful fairy tale for the future. I hope the classic fairy tales will still be loved in the future, too. I can’t say enough about Ms. Carlton’s storytelling. Every book I’ve read by her has been tops.
Revel: Twelve Dancing Princesses Retold - A magical, breathtaking story. A well written, exciting story with filled several wonderful, and several disgusting, characters. I couldn't put the book down, it read like a thriller. Another great read from this author. No vulgar/mild cursing.
Silence: Little Mermaid Retold - Another wonderful fairytale. Must read Revel first, which tells more of the twelve brothers that are mentioned here, and the secret of the island. But, if you can't do fret, this story is still great on its own. I've read all of the fairytales by this author and each time she has done a wonderful job. Her versions will be just as popular as the old classics most of us grew up reading.
Embellish: Brave Little Tailor Retold - This one is just as good as the others. Filled with fun, adventure and adversity. A well written, fast paced, humorous fairy tale with twists. The characters are fun and the plot just carries you along until the story ends. Some of the characters have appeared in her other fairytales. Ms. Carlton has yet to disappoint me with her work. A natural storyteller. I look forward to every book she writes.
Yun is the youngest prince, number eight, and thud has no real power in his household. His brothers are crude and love war and the spoils of war. They rape, murder, and mistreat their wives, but Yun prefers do write poetry and dream of better things. He is not really interested in ever having a woman of his own since he doesn't feel worthy, but his mother decrees that he find himself a wife.
Since the story is short I will not spoil it for you.
The tale, like all in the series, is about a young girl and the hardships she faces to find her destiny in the ever expanding world Mrs. Carlton is creating. If you like damsels who generally manage to pull themselves out of distress as often as get pulled out (and sometimes pull the princes out to boot), then this series is for you! Fly was definitely a different take on the Goose Girl fairy tale, but it was very good and extremely imaginative.

Overall then, an excellent story if you like adult fairytale retellings, whether in book or audiobook format, and kept me hooked from beginning to end, reading and listening in one sitting! With just the right amount of romance, magic and storytelling, it's the perfect book to read or listen to, and whilst it's a great standalone story, you'll really enjoy it as part of the series - and they're all brilliant, so it's no hardship to read or listen to them! I'd definitely recommend them all to any adults who like fairytale retellings, or stories with a twist of romance, magic and a "happy ever after".
NB I received a complimentary copy of this book, but I always give an HONEST review based wholly on my own opinions
Two princesses, one from a favoured wife and one from a concubine so very low in the pecking order, are sent out to a neighbouring warlike kingdom to strike a peace by marriage. If they were escorted by soldiers the group would just be killed so they are sent unescorted. This lends itself to mishaps, and as the title would imply, the high status princess swaps places with the low status one along the way.
I'm not giving higher marks because it's quite difficult to read some of the treatment of women by men. The author would in no way be condoning this of course and demonstrates that not all men behave in such ways, the hero figure being a poetic sort. Descriptions and character development are well written.
I would class this as an adult romance read due to violence and sexual violence.
I availed of a free download offer. This is an unbiased review.
I'm not to keen on the behaviour of the brothers, and the heroine comparing herself to a fish is odd. The goose girl link is a little tenuous.
