I don't even know where to start. This book hit just about every one of my favorite things. Magic, mystery, magical creatures, romance. And get this? It was a fairy tale re-telling! Well, sort of. Those are not my favorite types of stories, usually. But this one? It was awesome.
The main character is Norah and the story told from her point of view. She constantly surprised me by being such a clever and courageous heroine. I loved her. She was sassy, a go-getter, and definitely not a weak damsel.
Then we also have our love interests, though only one really matters to me: the Big Bad Wolf. And he certainly swept me off my feet! I just love a forbidden romance and this one is forbidden in both the real and fairy tale worlds. That makes it doubly delicious!
Our side characters are just as intriguing. We have our resident bad girls, our socially awkward sidekick, the headmistress who is up to no good, and even a backstabber or two in the midst of it all. It's quite the colorful cast. And even though every one is based on a well-known fairy tale character, I found each to be entirely different and interesting.
The writing is compelling and there are several moments of suspense that kept me turning the pages. And even though there are definitely similarities to other books, seeing as this takes place in a magical school and stars typical character types, I found the author's creativity to be unique and the storyline easy to follow.
I can't wait to get my hands on the second book! I don't know if the author plans to do another book tour for the sequel, and even if she does, I'm not sure I can wait until then. Oh, the woes of a bookworm... Five suns!
Man Cinderella and her girls were like the Regina George and Mean Girls of fairytales.
Norah was a girl who followed her dads many writing adventures all over the globe with her sister April. Norah was the girl to adapt to any situation and any school. April not so much. Due to Aprils many troubles and no mom at home she felt she needed to take on this role. Which caused lots of resentment between the sisters. One day dad drops them off at a prestigious school. A school of fairytale characters which makes Norah think everyone is crazy. Here she starts to learn her destiny and meets two handsome boys Wolf and Finn. Wolf is swoon worthy! Finn is a very charming. She embarks on a journey to take down Regina I mean Cinderella and her posse.
This story was different. The only issue I had was at times it seemed to lull but the story as a whole was cute and you couldn't help but cheer for Norah. I can't wait to read the next book.
That is the intriguing premise of this story. It caught my eye, and I'm glad that it did, because I think that I would have missed out otherwise.
This story has all the drama you could hope for when high school students are involved - except that instead of your usual cliques, you have Royals, Villains, Heroes and the like. Despite that, the interactions between the characters have an element of normality to them which really ground this story and make it less fanciful.
The threat and tension is pervasive and skillfully increases throughout the narrative
Overall, this is a very promising start to the series.
I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Well, this was such an enjoyable read! I finished it in one sitting.
Several books telling different versions of the classic fairytales had been cropping up recently. The Forgotten Fairytales is jam-packed with several childhood favourites and just like the main character, I was initially bewildered and even told a friend I felt like I wasn’t in Kansas anymore. Then lo and behold, Dorothy and her dog, Toto came into the scene!
Nora is just like any normal seventeen year old. She has a dad and a stepsister two years younger than her. Her dad’s work made them travel a lot and that meant for the two girls to transfer to different schools in different countries all their lives. To cope with the constant changes, Nora had mastered the art of friendship. Wherever they went, she made a point to be positive about it and make friends with her new schoolmates.
The same can’t be said about her sister, April who struggled forming relationships and ended up sinking into depression. Try as she might, Nora couldn’t break through the ice around April to help her. Every time she tried, she ended up being hurt and broken-hearted.
But what better way to heal a broken heart than falling into the arms of Prince Charming, right?
This is not your typical fairy tale.
Cinderella is a conniving little miss. Prince Charming is a self-absorbed, heartless guy with a pretty face. Ariel is a pathetic little girl while Derek is a consummated alcoholic.
Even the villains of the fairytales are not behaving as they should. Especially the big, bad wolf. Swoon! I had to fan myself several times because he is so BAD.
Oh, sorry! Lost my train of thought. Anyway, moving on.
You need to pick this one up and be lost in the story just like I did with Nora. It’s a must read!
Oh, look! Book 2!
