In With a Kiss, Halley Starr, an unfeeling but otherwise normal teen, finds herself playing an overprotective godmother to a faery princess. When I mean unfeeling, I don't mean that she's cruel; she'd love to love, love to feel, but she was placed under a curse, which is why she literally has an ice-cold heart. With the help of Hobs, the inspiration behind the mischievous Puck, she'll have to break the curse and save the princess.
Or does she? That's one of the fun things about this book; Ms. Fowers takes us through twists and turns so that you don't know who is bad and who is good. In fact, even though I've finished the book, there are still a few characters who I'm still not sure are good or bad. And that's just *one* of the fun things about this book. The dialogue and interactions between Halley, Hobs, and Babs (the faery princess child) are fantastic--funny and also heartwarming.
Halley reminds me of Emma in the TV show Once Upon a Time: The Complete First Season. She's not a dainty princess or a warrior princess... she's a normal person who just happens to be stuck as an unexpected hero as she discovers that faery tales are real. Hobs is a delightful prankster and a great character, especially when you realize why he won't leave Halley alone.
Various mystical creatures from different myths and tales pop up in Ms. Fower's world, which is rich with magic and where faery tales are actually dark prophesies that are yet to come. However, even though there's magic, humans have no idea about it. Additionally, each chapter has a fae-related quote at the start. To say this book would appeal to those who love myths and faeries would be a huge understatement!
There's romance, but it's clean and totally appropriate for young teens reading this with enough humor and angst to appeal to all ages. This is clearly part of a series as there are cliffhangers for many of the characters at the end so you'll probably want to make sure book two is ready to go! This is by no means a standalone book although there is some resolution (which opens up many more questions!).
With a Kiss is a fast-paced and fun book that I can see appealing to all age groups, particularly those who like mythology and the fae.
Anyways, With a Kiss is suitable for nine ages and up. No inappropriateness or whatever. You should definitely buy this book ( and the others) but warned you just won't be able to put it down! Oh, and I absolutely loved Hobs and Halley ( MY FAVE COUPLE)
I love the way Miss Fowers weaves together all the different fairy tales and puts a different spin on them, while still managing to insert her own original plot. I appreciated that she kept everything clean, as well - it's so hard to find books like that anymore.
This first installment was a little confusing, but since it's the first of a trilogy, a lot of my confusion was taken care of in the subsequent installment. I did think Hobs was a little hard on Haley, especially since she was curse against her will. The ending was a little surprising, but it just made me want to read the next book.
Recommended for anyone who loves fairy tales and clean, funny romance. I will definitely read all of her other books (as soon as I can afford them - her non-Twisted Tales books are kind of expensive).
