I enjoyed Laura Kenyon’s first two books in the Desperately Ever After series, so I was eagerly awaiting the concluding novel that picks up where Damsels in Distress left off.
As it had been a while since I read Damsels, I had forgotten some of what happened. Thankfully, Laura provided a lot of reminders and refreshers, almost like the beginning of a TV episode would to say what happened last time. She even included a glossary of names and how each character fit into the story! However, how things worked politically and in the magic realm got confusing sometimes. Especially since loyalties kept getting shifted and I wasn’t always sure who to root for. (The same thing happens on Orphan Black though!)
I felt like Laura had a crystal ball into 2017 when she wrote this novel. A lot of what happens reminds me of some current events. So it hit too close to home sometimes. Nonetheless, it was nice to visit with Rapunzel, Belle, Dawn, Snow, and Penny again and to see where things would end up with them. I can definitely say I’m satisfied with where the story went.
I hope Laura will start another series or write some stand-alone novels. She really is a skilled, creative, and talented writer.
Here are some more ideas to share with Hollywood…(I shared others in my reviews of her previous books)
Perrin: Randy Rainbow (Maybe he can turn the Marestam Mirror posts into songs!)
Angus: Alec Baldwin (I cast Alan Rickman last time, but this was easy to recast based on current events)
Donner: Sam Heughan
Ethan: Chris Hemsworth
It had been a long time since I had finished Damsels in Distress, the previous installment, but I remembered it had ended with a huge cliff-hanger, with pregnant Belle rushed to hospital. When I started Skipping Midnight, I was a bit lost though. So many things were happening at once and I wasn't sure who was who any more. But as I got to know the characters again, it all came back and I started enjoying the story again.
I think this one is the most ambitious book of the three. All stories are open and the author even manages to open a few more before we slowly start reading about the endings (and what endings!). But I think that this installment has lost the fun spark that I enjoyed so much in the other books, especially in the first one, and it's probably the one that dragged the most. However, it was great fun being back with the princesses again and I was really happy with most of the stories, it definitely makes for a very entertaining story.
If you are a Disney fan yourself and haven't picked this series yet, I'd highly recommend you do. There are so many surprises in store for you!
