“A rollicking, genuine fairy tale, told with great appreciation for the genre and a sly sense of humor.” (Kirkus)
About the Author
Jack Heckel’s life is an open book. Actually, it’s the book you are in all hope holding right now (and if you are not holding it, he would like to tell you it can be purchased from any of your finest purveyors of the written word). He is the author of the Charming Tales series and The Dark Lord. Beyond that, Jack aspires to be either a witty, urbane, world traveler who lives on his vintage yacht, The Clever Double Entendre, or a geographically illiterate professor of literature who spends his non-writing time restoring an 18th century lighthouse off a remote part of the Vermont coastline. More than anything, Jack lives for his readers.

Well, not the main character's are King William and his affianced, Lady Rapunzel, or Edward (the man formerly known as Prince) Charming and his lovely bride, Princess Elizabeth.
Add another dragon, come to revenge the death (at the times of William's pitchfork) of his dragonic lady love, a sleazy and traitorous talking wolf, an even sleazier arch-villain (with a sock puppet!), and three hungry bears, plus cameos from the Seven Dwarfs© and an unhappy troll, and...
What can I say? Read it. Read 'A Fairy Tale Ending' first, as otherwise much of this book will make no sense, but the read this one.
And just hope that the minds that make up Jack Heckel (all that time in that lonely Vermont lighthouse have apparently resulted in some kind of split personality, poor fellow) are hard at work on Book Three!
I get that we don't want anybody to actually die in a fairytale, but this storyline started to feel forced and awkward. It was good to have the loose ends tied up with (almost) everybody getting their happy endings. But overall, this book is a level below the first one. I give it 4 stars only because it's the sequel which closes out the Charming Tales.
