The Stepsister’s Tale by Tracy Barrett (review)

The Stepsister’s Tale by Tracy Barrett (review)

I loved this twist on the usual Cinderella story. The step-family isn’t actually wicked, and Isabella (Ella) is manipulative and tells lies about them to anyone who will listen to her. They’re poor and the only reason they have food to eat most of the time, is because the two daughters (Jane and Maude) do all the housework and tend to the animals. They make butter and cheese, collect eggs from the chickens, and Jane sews most of their clothing. Their mother is delusional most of the time. She refuses to acknowledge that they are not the rich and important… Read more »

Invisible (The Twixt #2) by Dawn Metcalf (review)

Invisible (The Twixt #2) by Dawn Metcalf (review)

I didn’t love this one quite as much as the first book. I still really liked it, but there were some slow bits in the beginning. And while I totally understand why Joy did that one thing, I still wanted to hit her over the head with something. I also need to take a moment and squee! (without spoilers!) because I totally knew something was going to happen eventually! And it DID! And I didn’t know how it was going to happen or when, but finally? *laughs* We get to see more of Filly in this book, as well as… Read more »

Indelible (The Twixt #1) by Dawn Metcalf (review)

I won the third book in this series in a giveaway, not knowing that it was the third book. So I went to the library to pick up the other two. I think the Universe was trying to tell me something. I absolutely LOVED this book! I loved the world of the Twixt, and how it bled over into Joy’s world once she was marked by Ink. I loved how cute Ink was as he learned about what it was to be and look like a human from Joy. He grew so much as a character during the book. It… Read more »

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1) by Julie Kagawa (review)

The Lost Prince (The Iron Fey: Call of the Forgotten #1) by Julie Kagawa (review)

If you haven’t read the Iron Fey series, you will end up being very curious and should go read that series. However, this book does it’s best to sketch in enough details that you won’t be lost if you haven’t read that series yet. For the fellow Puck lovers, he DOES appear in this book! But sadly not until towards the end and his part isn’t long. Perhaps we’ll get more next book? I ended up liking Kenzie more after Grimalkin appeared. She was the epitome of the tenacious, nosy reporter girl. And while that isn’t a bad thing necessarily,… Read more »

Summer’s Crossing (The Iron Fey #3.5) by Julie Kagawa (review)

Summer’s Crossing (The Iron Fey #3.5) by Julie Kagawa (review)

“No one has ever spoken my real name out loud, not once, despite all the titles and nicknames and myths I’ve collected for myself over the years.”   The story is told from Puck’s point of view. He lives up to his name, with many funny comments all through out the story. I liked the way he was portrayed, it fit the character well. I also liked reading about Ash. This is a short story, 6th in book order. I haven’t read any of the other books in this series, but I really want to read them now! Besides being… Read more »
