Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-8-In this sequel to Of Giants and Ice (S .S, 2012), seventh-grader Rory is looking forward to spending spring break with her friends Lena and Chase at the Ever After School, an after-school program for fairy-tale Characters. However, when most of the students and faculty are poisoned, Rory and a team of Characters must head off on a quest to Atlantis to find the antidote. As before, the Ice Queen is their main nemesis, but the Characters must also contend with hostile Fey royalty, boisterous Wind siblings, bridge trolls, and other assorted folks of myth and legend. Brave, self-reliant kids with special powers and destinies-check. Enemies determined to kill them off by any means necessary-check. A school devoted to keeping the kids safe while training them to meet their destinies and defeat their enemies-check. Kids addicted to this genre will probably find the barrage of nonstop action and the breezy tone to their taste. While most characters are only lightly sketched and the plot lacks cohesion, Rory is both plucky and likable; readers see enough of her "real" life to understand why the Ever After School is the only place where she feels she can shine. Try this adventure fantasy on Rick Riordan fans.-Eva Mitnick, Los Angeles Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

This is the second in the series, the first was 'Of Giants and Ice,' and continues the story of Rory and her friends in training to become 'characters.' Characters are the people you read about in fairy tales. You know, not 'real' people, just fairy tale folks, right? Wrong! Seems the people in fairy tales are very real and not all of them live 'happily ever after.' Nothing's worse than being a 'failed fairy tale' because failures usually wind up dead. Now, with the Snow Queen and her minions plotting to free her from the Glass Mountain, Rory and her companions must not only survive the tales they find themselves in, but also keep the evil queen from using their stories to escape her prison. Edge of seat fun! I can't wait for the next book in the series!

As mentioned in my previous review, I bought the first one years after reading it in the library one day. Immediately after reading it (actually, it probably before I was even done) I bought this one. Not a mistake. The characters have grown organically. The plot has gained in complexity. More secrets are revealed. It gets much ... more ... interesting.
Again, not a fan of the pointless mother, but that goes without saying.
Also, again, great role models without bad language (except for G-d), not too much violence, perfect for children without any worries. Great read!

My daughter loved the Percy Jackson series as well as Harry Potter and we were glad to somewhat accidentally stumble upon this series.

I also read these books and found them better than Percy Jackson and similar to Harry Potter. Once you start reading, you cannot stop, and it is great how they tie the plots to common fairy tales. This has inspired us to re read some fairy tales and think about them in a new light!

Can't wait for book 3!

Excellent sequel to Of Giants and Ice! The first book in this series blew me away and this book did the same. I find the characters to be extremely 3D with real world problems and believable reactions to the completely insane situations they sometimes end up in. The prose ran so smoothly I finished this book in two sittings because I kept losing track of time! I cannot wait for book three!

After reading the Percy Jackson series, I've been looking for something even half as good.

Ever After series did not disappoint me! The characters are enjoyable and funny. The plot is smooth and keeps my interest from the very beginning.

Rory is also an amazing heroine. She's tough yet sensitive and it's great to see her go through things normal kids go through, like divorce, even as she fights monsters. You really feel for her as you read and I couldn't help but cry a few times at the raw and totally relatable emotions she goes through.

Highly recommend this as well as the first book. The only thing that disappoints me is that the third book isn't out yet.

This book is a wonderful read, each of the characters have flaws that influence how they react to certain situations within the book. The mix of normal everyday life and fairytales is wonderfully combined in this book, can't wait for the rest!

This is a really good book. Like, extremely good! Definitely NOT some cheesy fairy tail. This book is filled with comedy, adventure, and I have to admit there is a little middle school romance. Shelby did it again with this second book. I can't wait to see what will happen next to Rory, Chase, and Lena!
