Julie Daines' "Black Fern":
My favorite of this collection, "Fern" is a Beauty and the Beast retelling. I have to admit to being disappointed in Disney's adaptation this year, since Beast is my favorite fairy tale. Belle was not who she should be--smart, compassionate, and kind. Instead, she was aloof and a bit unlikeable.
Therefore, I was looking forward to reading something closer to the true heart of the Beast story. Rós did not disappoint. She is brave, smart and kind--a true Belle. When faced with her family's starvation, she gathers her courage and knocks on the door of the most terrifying (and richest) home in town. Instead of being repulsed by the hideous resident, she wonders how long it has been since he has spoken with someone or felt the sunlight. She spends hours talking to him, cooking for him, helping in any way she can. Rós is not cowed by his temper either, and shows kindness in return.
With a highly original twist involving myths and legends I hadn't even heard of, this is not your average fairy tale retelling. And once again, it's my favorite Daines' story yet!
Eden's THE PEBBLED PATH:
Eden is a seasoned, smooth, original author. She always delivers a story I haven't heard before and this was no exception. Gretel sacrifices a life of servitude to a witch in exchange for her father's life. Hansel is a wood worker who stumbles upon Gretel in the woods and is intrigued by the mystery of Gretel's constant disappearances and her demanding mistress. With an ending both twisted and super awesome, I loved this story. Not one to miss.
I love this new Happily Ever After Collection that has been added to the Timeless Romance line. What a great group of authors to start it off with. I am a lover of fairy tales and these 6 novella retellings did not disappoint at all. I absolutely loved Black Fern, a Beauty and the Beast retelling and Scarlet, a Little Red Riding Hood retelling. Now those are just two of the six obviously but were my two favorites. All of them were very cleverly written and interpreted. I never would have thought to add some of the twists that the authors did. Well done!
Scarlet...oh heavens. It started off dark and mysterious and just kept going. I wanted to instantly reread it as soon as I finished. Lots of chemistry and brooding wolves in this one.
Black Fern...a paranormal twist on Beauty and the Beast that worked perfectly!
Mail-Order Princess...I can't remember the name of the fairytale it is retelling but it is one that I've really enjoyed through the years. The sister whose brothers are cursed and turned into swans and she must be silent while breaking the curse. This one was a fun twist set in America and a sweet love story too!
The Miller's Daughter...I've always loved Rumpelstiltskin and let me say this one didn't disappoint. Who would have thought to twist it and make the characters work as they did for this retelling? I liked it...a lot! Rumpel was probably my favorite character! With a very plucky Isa!
The pebbled Path...Hansel and Gretel. Oh I liked it. Jenni James' version puts these two characters not as siblings but as love interests and Sarah Eden did the same thing. The witch was intense but still not outsmarted by Hansel and Gretel.
So Rare a Power...A Snow Queen retelling. I've actually only read one maybe two retellings of this fairytale. It's not my favorite fairytale, in general. But I will say that I liked this take on it. Cold and Frozen but true love can thaw anything!!!
Definitely one I enjoyed a lot and highly recommend for fairytale lovers.
Content: Clean throughout the whole collection. Scarlet was a little more intense than the others and had a little bit more kissing, maybe a spicy clean rating for that one. Some paranormal and some magic throughout the collection.
I received a copy from the publisher. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own.
